Merit EHS is owned by Merit Technologies, a Greenville, SC based IT/Managed Services Company. As a customer of the software or a representative of an entity that’s a customer of the Service, you're a “Member” according to this agreement (or “you”). Terms define the terms and conditions under which you’re allowed to use Merit EHS. If you have any questions please contact us.

By using Merit EHS, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use Merit EHS in a way that violates any laws or regulations. Merit EHS may refuse service, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
The Term begins when you sign up for Merit EHS and continues as long as you use the Software. Clicking the button and entering your username means that you’ve officially “signed” the Terms. If you sign up for Merit EHS on behalf of a company or other entity, you agree that you bear the authority to accept these Terms on their behalf.
Closing your Account
You or Merit EHS may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by giving Notice to the other party. We may suspend our Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, we'll refund a prorated portion of your monthly prepayment or reimburse you as necessary. We won’t refund or reimburse you if there’s cause, like a violation of these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy. Once terminated, we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your emails from our Website. If you don’t log in to your account for 12 or more months, we may treat your account as "inactive" and permanently delete the account and all the data associated with it.
You are responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security. Merit EHS will not arbitrate any disputes over who owns or manages an account.
We have made our monthly payment requirements and expectations as clear as possible. The cost for each software package is posted on our website and may be changed at any time with no notice. Payment is due in full when you first sign up for any software package, and again at a monthly rate. If you need to upgrade to a different level of use at any time please let us know and the adjustments to your account can be made. Failure to pay the monthly fee (or the inability to process your credit card order) will result in a suspension of your account until further notice. Anyone using a credit card represents and warrants that he or she is authorized to use that credit card, and that any and all charges may be billed to that credit card and won’t be rejected. We may change our fees at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our Website and/or sending you a notification by email.
We’ll give you a refund for a prepaid month if we stop providing our Services to you for a reason that's not laid out in these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy. At that point you will not be entitled to a refund from us under any other circumstances. Contact us if you believe you deserve a refund.
