If you become a customer of Company Express, we will undertake to maintain the confidentiality of your non-public information.  We will use such information only as required to perform the services for which you engage us and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we will not divulge such information to any third party without your prior consent.  You acknowledge, however, that under some circumstances we may be required to disclose your information by a court or government agency.  In such event, we will limit our disclosure to what is required and endeavor to inform you in advance, unless we are prohibited from doing so.  Please do not submit any confidential information to us unless and until you become our customer.

Satisfaction Policy

Our goal is to provide you with excellent service.  We want you to be 100% satisfied.  If you are not, please contact our customer service via e-mail.

Order Cancellation

You can cancel your order at any time before we commence our performance of the services ordered.  In the event of your timely cancellation, we will refund any prepaid amounts to you, subject to a $50 processing fee.
Orders for ongoing services, such us mail forwarding and nominee services, can be cancelled on a case-by-case basis and we will refund a pro-rated portion of our fee for the applicable service period.  To the extent we are unable to avoid or recover disbursements to third parties (including without limitation our affiliates and government agencies), we will be unable to refund such amounts to you.  Registered Agent Services are subject to specific terms set forth below.

Client Communications

In order to reduce our impact upon the environment, we send all communications to our customers by email, including all Service of Process ("SOP") documents, invoices and annual report reminders.  It is your responsibility to keep a valid email address on file with us and to make sure that our emails will not be blocked or deleted by your spam filter (we never send spam to customers).

Registered Agent Service in USA

All Company Express USA incorporation packages include free Registered Agent Service until the first renewal date for your entity.  The renewal date varies according to the law of the state in which your entity is formed and may be a fixed date (e.g., June 1 for Delaware LLCs) or be based on the anniversary of incorporation.  Please contact our customer service to find the renewal date for your entity.  After the initial term, you will be billed for Registered Agent Service at our then current rate.  If we do not receive full payment as indicated in your invoice, we may resign as your entity’s registered agent, without any liability to you.  You acknowledge that an entity lacking a registered agent may be administratively dissolved by the government and you shall bear all risks arising from such dissolution.  You agree to pay reasonable collection costs, if necessary, in the event of non-payment, plus interest on any overdue amounts at a rate of 1.5% per month, as well as any fees associated with the reinstatement of your entity, if it has been dissolved.
You may cancel our Registered Agent Service at any time, upon written notice to us, including proof that your entity has a new registered agent on file with the state or country register.  If we do not receive your notice of cancellation prior to the renewal date, you agree that we may charge the full fee for the renewal service term.  We do not refund any portion of Registered Agent Service fees for service periods that have already commenced.

Fees

We may change our fee schedule (including for renewable services) from time to time without notice to you.  Before making a new order, please consult this Site or contact us for current pricing information.  Returned checks are subject to $30 fee.
