Please carefully read all the terms. They contain important information about your rights and obligations.
By clicking “I agree” or otherwise electronically indicating assent, you acknowledge you have read, understood and agreed to the Terms of Sale.
If you do not agree to the Terms of Sale, then you may not transact with us, nor access or use our Services.
The Terms of Sale cover:
a. You must be at least eighteen (18) years old and have legal capacity to enter into a contract.
b. If you are a new customer for a paid Service, you will create an account and provide certain information, including a valid email address. Your email address is our preferred method of contact.
c. The information you provide us must be accurate, complete and kept up to date. Failure to do so may mean that we cannot fulfill your Transaction(s) or reach you for important notifications.
d. In accordance with our Global Privacy Statement, we retain your payment information that is entered and stored in your account. This information is used to: 1) automatically renew all automatically renewing subscriptions that are in your account; and 2) suggest its use for any subsequent Transaction to facilitate your Transaction without prompting you to re-enter your payment information each time.
e. Your account is personal and exclusively for you to access and manage your information, Transactions and Services. You can review, edit, or delete your information in your account anytime.
a. Through the entire order process, you can review your order prior to finally submitting it to us.
b. When transacting with us, your order is accepted and your Transaction is completed only when: 1) your payment is accepted, or your payment information is verified if the Transaction required your payment information without immediate payment; and 2) we send you a confirmation email of your order.
c. If the payment information you provide cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled. If we reject your order, we will refund any payments made for that order, and we may also cancel or restrict use and access to the applicable Services.
d. Occasionally an error or inaccuracy in the price or Service description may occur. In the rare case that happens, we will contact you for instructions where you will have the option to either: (1) cancel your order at no cost, and obtain a refund of any prior payment that you have made for the Service; or (ii) proceed with your order based on the corrected price or description of the Service.
e. While we maintain records of orders and retain them for a reasonable period, we also recommend that you retain a printed or electronically saved copy of the Terms of Sale with a copy of your order in your own files.
Certain Services do not require payment and are provided to you free-of-charge. Other Services require payment or payment information without immediate payment, before you can access and use them and may be offered through subscription plans. In any case, to access and use our Services you must have Internet access and a compatible device.
a. You will have access to the Service for the duration of your contract.
b. If you have a Service provided to you free of charge, also known as Freemium, where access to more advanced or premium features requires a paid subscription to the Service, your Freemium Service will continue until uninstalled or is no longer supported.
c. If you have a fixed-term subscription, then your Service will terminate automatically at the expiration of your subscription term.
d. If you have an automatically renewing subscription, your Service will renew on an annual or monthly basis, unless you cancel the subscription renewal before the day you are due to be charged.
Note. You have an automatically renewing subscription if you have:
i) subscribed to it directly with us, or
ii) activated the subscription renewal in your account or by contacting us.
e. If you have a one-time service or product, it will last as specified in the confirmation email.
b. Unless you cancel the subscription renewal before the day you are due to be charged, the renewal is charged to your payment method as detailed in the notification email that we send to you after the renewal fee has been charged.

i) up to thirty-five (35) days before the annual subscription is due to renew, and we send you a notification email with the renewal price before; and
ii) up to five (5) days before the monthly subscription is due to renew.
As such, the date you are charged will likely occur prior to the date that your subscription renews. The actual date that we charge your payment method depends on several factors (e.g. if it’s a public holiday, if your payment method has not successfully settled due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise).
d. The length of your billing cycle (annual or monthly) depends on the type of subscription that you choose when you sign-up for the Service.
a. Our Services may be offered as a trial for a specified period without payment or at a reduced rate (“Trial(s)”). The duration of your Trial will be specified during sign-up and/or in the promotional materials.
b. Our Trials are intended for new customers and certain former customers to try our paid Services. Eligibility is determined by us and we may limit access or duration to prevent abuse. We can revoke a Trial if we determine that you are not eligible.
c. Many Trials require payment information before it will begin. Unless you cancel before the end of the Trial, we will automatically charge the payment method provided to us at the end of the Trial, on a recurring monthly or annual basis, depending on the term you have selected.
d. If your Trial (of 30 days or more) automatically renews as a paid subscription, we will send you a notification email before we charge the payment method on file.
a. Our advertised prices and the final price displayed prior to your confirmation of your order are inclusive of VAT and/or any other applicable taxes.
b. We reserve the right to discontinue a discount and/or to change price(s) or offers at any time. A price change will not affect an order that we have already accepted, except if you expressly agree otherwise. If the price for your subscription changes at renewal, we will send you a notification email in advance and you can cancel your subscription renewal or terminate your contract if you do not accept the price change.
c. Our Services are delivered electronically and there are no shipping or handling costs. Any cost associated with accessing our website and/or Services is your responsibility and is dependent on your Internet service provider.

There are also times we obtain and use updated credit card account information from credit card providers to retry failed payments in order to complete transactions, including but not limited to, retrying failed billings with extended expiration dates. Please contact your credit card provider for more information about this service and what it may mean for you and your card.
