It is sometimes referred to as "on-demand" software. SaaS is typically accessed by users using a web browser or mobile device.

You understand and acknowledge that ORU Premium Membership is offered as Software as a Service (SAAS) and requires a monthly subscription payment. In return the member receives certain benefits and a non-exclusive license to utlize the software available to Premium Members / Subscribers. We (and our licensors) remain the sole owner of all right, title, and interest in the Services and Software. We reserve all rights not granted under these terms.
To become a Premium Member, members pay a one-time $24.99 activation fee and first month subscription of $5.95. Each consecutive month thereafter the Premium Member will be billed $5.95
From time to time Premium Members receive a notification polling them if they are still satisfied with their billing schedule. Premium Members can cancel their membership at any time and for any reason.
Annual Premium Members will automatically have their membership renewed at the end of the calendar year subscription unless they personally cancel their subscription and account through the membership cancellation function in their account menu.
Premium Membership has to remain active during the subscription program chosen by the ORU Member to continue to receive Premium Membership benefits, including but not limited to ORU Protocol, ADVT Credits and ORUScore Participation Bonuses. If Premium Membership subscription is not paid because of a lack of funds on behalf of the ORU member, the member will be notified by ORU and given several opportunities to bring their account current. If the member fails to do so, their Premium Membership will be cancelled and Premium Membership benefits will no longer be available. However, the ORU member can re-activate their Premium Membership at any time by paying the monthly membership fee of $5.95 after which they continue to receive Premium Membership benefits.

Only complete and comprehensive product listings will be authorized in the ORU Marketplace. Products with missing descriptions, false reprentations and/or otherwise misleading content will be subject to removal.

You understand that we will only access, view, or listen to your content in limited ways. For example, in order to perform the Services, we may need to access, view, or listen to your content to (a) respond to support requests; (b) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security , unlawful, or technical issues; and (c) enforce these terms. Our automated systems may analyze your content using techniques such as machine learning. This analysis might occur as the content is sent, received, or when it is stored. From this analysis, we are able to improve the Services.
You understand that you can not make traditional deposits in United States Dollars or any other legally denominated and accepted currency into your MY FUNDS account. Funds paid in a member's MY FUNDS account are the result of conditional incentive payments made by ORU Market to its members. Third party funds cannot be deposited in a member's MY FUNDS account. ORU Market is not a third party money transmitter. The MY FUNDS PURCHASE ADVT CREDITS function is utilized for the purposes of Premium Membership onboarding whereas the prospective Premium Member does not have access to or ability to fund their Premium Membership with a debit or credit card. Additionally this function is available to those members who want to purchase advanced ADVT credits to be utilized for advertising purposes in the ORU Marketplace. ORU Market does not charge for or otherwise financially benefit from this feature. No commissions or fees are applied except those charged by the processor of the credit or debit card transaction, normally 3.9% plus $0.30 per transaction. PURCHASE ADVT CREDIT transactions are considered purchases and not deposits.
The ORU Premium Member MY FUNDS Withdraw Funds feature is exclusively established for the withdrawal of rewards, bonuses and ORUScore Participation Bonuses. It is prohibited to utilize this function for the purposes of third party money transmission. Members cannot fund their MY FUNDS account for purposes of withdrawing those funds outside the scope of what the function was established for. To illustrate, a member cannot use the PURCHASE ADVT CREDITS function to deposit funds in their MY FUNDS account for the purpose of then withdrawing those funds to another source such as PayPal or the ORU Visa Prepaid Card as their sole intention outside of the stated purpose of the function.
When you use the function of PURCHASE ADVT CREDITS you are, in fact, purchasing advanced credits to be used as funds in the following manner:
Purchasing products or services in the ORU Market
Purchasing Advertising in the ORU Advertising section ( hence ADVT Credits )
Purchasing ORU QUANTUM WIDGETS
As an option to use MY FUNDS to pay for your Premium Membership.
Fund your ORU Visa PREPAID Card to be used as a method to pay for your Premium Membership
The following example is how this great benefit and function cannot be used and any ORU Member who willfully and intentionally uses the ADVT function for the purposes of ORU Visa Card funding as an exclusive application is subject to review and possible membership termination action.
EXAMPLE: Credit your MY FUNDS account with funds paid for with a debit / credit card or PayPal, then immediately withdraw those funds to an external source such as the ORU Visa Prepaid Card without using them for their intended purposes.
The Withdraw Funds function is intended specifically for the purposes of
Withdrawing ORUScore participation bonuses paid to Premium Members each week
Protocol Advocacy Referral bonuses paid to Premium Members
Advertising Rebates paid to ORU Members Advertising in the ORU Market
Funds received as a consequence of the sale of ORU WIDGETS
