Refunds are offered to users who have over-subscribed in error, if we're contacted within 48 hours of receiving a payment reciept. We do not give refunds or credits for account downgrades or upgrades, partial months of service, or for unused months with an open account.
iii. Changing Your Paid Subscription Plan - As we offer a simple paid subscription plan, and you can upgrade/downgrade at any time.

We may alter the fees and charges in effect for the paid subscription plans or add new fees and charges at any time. However, we will provide you with advance notice of no less than fourteen (14) days of these changes by posting them on our Site and/or via email. All subscription account payments are due no more than fourteen (14) days after an invoice is received. Late payments may result in account suspension or cancellation.
