FEES AND PAYMENTS. If you are purchasing a Copysentry subscription, it will renew and continue automatically, unless terminated by Indigo Stream or until you notify Indigo Stream of your decision to terminate your subscription by canceling your service on-line at http://www.copyscape.com/cancel.php. If there are any annual, monthly, or other periodic fees for your subscription, you authorize Indigo Stream to automatically bill these fees to the credit card, depending on the type of charge card you designate during the registration process for the Services or subsequently designate at the start of the annual, monthly or similar period, and at the start of each renewal period, unless you terminate your subscription before the relevant period begins.

Indigo Stream outsources all online payment processing to RBS WorldPay or PayPal. Indigo Stream does not have access to credit card numbers and certain other payment information submitted to RBS WorldPay or PayPal as a result of the online payment process. You agree to provide RBS WorldPay or PayPal with a valid credit card and accurate, complete and updated information required by the subscription registration form. Failure to comply may result in the immediate termination of Services. If you want to designate a different credit card or there is a change in credit card validity or expiration date, you must modify your credit card details at the WorldPay Shopper Management System, at http://www.rbsworldpay.com/shopper/, or through the PayPal site.

If you believe someone has accessed the Services using your username and password without your authorization, you must inform Indigo Stream via the technical support page at http://www.copyscape.com/support.php. You must contact Indigo Stream via the technical support page at http://www.copyscape.com/support.php about any billing problems or discrepancies within 60 days after they first appear on your account statement. If you do not bring them to Indigo Stream's attention within 60 days, you agree that you waive your right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.

You also are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access the Services through an Internet access provider or other third party service. YOU, AND NOT INDIGO STREAM, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY, WHICH WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.

YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL RENEWAL OF SERVICES. You may cancel your renewal of the Services at any time at http://www.copyscape.com/cancel.php. When cancelling a renewal, you will still receive access to the Services for the period for which you have paid.

YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL SERVICES. If you wish to cancel a subscription period that you have already paid for, you must contact Indigo Stream on-line at http://www.copyscape.com/support.php. If you have purchased a subscription, and you cancel within seven days of purchase, you have the right to receive a full refund of your subscription fee, in accordance with EU E-commerce regulations. If you have purchased a subscription, and you cancel at any time after the seven day period, you will not receive a refund for the period in which you cancel, but you will not be billed for any renewal periods. In the event you cancel after the seven day period, and you are not eligible for a refund under the terms of this Agreement, you will still receive access to the Services for the balance of that period for which you have paid. Other than as explicitly set forth in this Agreement, all payments are non-refundable. All subscriptions start the day you order the Services (and such day is included in the calculation of the termination periods). All cancellation dates will be the date that your cancellation notice is received. You understand and agree that cancellation of your subscription is your sole right and remedy with respect to any dispute with Indigo Stream. This includes, but is not limited to, any dispute related to, or arising out of: (1) any term of this Agreement or the enforcement or application of this Agreement; (2) any policy or practice of Indigo Stream, including any Indigo Stream Privacy Policy, or Indigo Stream's enforcement or application of these policies; (3) the content available through the Services or the Internet or any change in content provided through the Service; (4) your ability to access and/or use the Services; (5) the amount or type of fees, applicable taxes, billing methods, or any change to the fees, applicable taxes, or billing methods.
