3. Subscription Term, Fees, Termination
You can purchase a monthly or annual plan and You will be charged on a recurring basis. We have two paid plans available (Normal and Premium). All fees, expenses and taxes due hereunder will be paid in GBP (British Pound). All fees due and payable by you to Altio under the Terms must be paid in full without any deduction, set-off, counterclaim or withholding of any kind unless required by law. All fees due and payable under the Terms are exclusive of taxes, which will be added at the prevailing rate from time to time. When you sign up for a paid plan, you are agreeing to pay and take responsibility for all charges made in accordance with the chosen plan, and your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the subscription term unless you cancel as further set forth herein.
3.1 Cancellation policy.
Once a user submits a request for cancellation, no additional charges will be made. However, no refunds (prorated or otherwise) are provided upon cancellation. In the interest of fairness to all of our clients, no exceptions will be made.
3.2. Free trial period
Altio may offer from time to time a free trial period to selected companies prior to official launch. You are not required to enter payment information, but your plan will expire at the end of the trial period of service. If you choose to enter billing information, your first charge will occur at the end of free trial period after your signup date. If you elect the free trial and you cancel your Account before the end of trial period, you won’t be billed at all, even if you entered your billing information.
3.3. Monthly plan billing.
Altio’s monthly plans provide month-to-month access, with monthly charges being made each renewal day (the same day of the month that you originally signed up for the plan). Monthly plans automatically renew every month. If you cancel before an upcoming renewal day, you will have access to your Account through the end of the then-current month.
3.4. Annual plan billing.
Altio’s annual plans provide year-to-year access and a substantial savings over the month-to-month plan. Annual charges will be made each renewal date (the same date of the year that you originally signed up for the plan). Annual plans automatically renew every year thereafter. If you cancel before an upcoming renewal date, you will have access to your Account through the end of the then-current year.
3.5. Failed charges; Suspension.
If your bank details on file is closed or the Account information is changed, or if, for any reason, a charge is rejected, you shall immediately update your Account or supply a new payment account, as appropriate. If you are unable to update your credit card or banking details with appropriate information, then Altio will send an invoice to you detailing the amount due. You must pay the amount due in full within seven (7) days after the date of the invoice. You agree to notify Altio in writing of any changes to your Account information or termination of any authorization at least thirty (30) days prior to the immediately subsequent billing date. In the event payment dates fall on a weekend or holiday, you understand that the payments may be executed on the next business day. Altio may, without liability to you, disable the password, Account and access to all or part of the Services if any fees are not paid within seven (7) days after such fees first becoming due and payable under the Terms. In the event of the foregoing, Altio shall not be obligated to provide any and/or all of the Services until such fees are paid in full. Accounts that have been terminated may be reactivated if valid payment information is entered and the card can be successfully processed for all charges accrued on the Account. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties in writing, any Altio fees not paid on-time shall carry an upfront handling fee of 5% and a monthly cumulative interest charge of 1% on any outstanding fee due until fully paid for.
