Payment Terms

Services are purchased for a period of one month. The time period begins at the exact moment of service activation, and expires at the same moment on the next month, unless the next month is shorter, in which case a different expiration date will be calculated. You are notified of an expiration date for a service on the appropriate dashboard for that service. Failure to renew the service or make contact with us notifying us when you intend to renew the service may result in suspension and later termination of the expired service at any time after the expiry date has passed.
