You are responsible for paying for the license ordered for the entire License Term, whether or not such license is actively used. You must provide HOSTFULLY with valid credit card or approved purchase order information as a condition to signing up for the Service.
Adding properties may result in a change of plan. Added properties or rental agencies links to the license will be subject to the following: (i) added properties or rental agencies to the license will be coterminous with the pre-existing License Term (either Initial Term or renewal term); (ii) the license fee for the change of plan resulting from added properties or rental agencies to the license will be calculated so that the remainder of the then-current license plan be accounted pro rata temporis and deducted from the new charge; and (iii) properties or rental agencies to the license added in the middle of a billing month will be charged in full for the pro-rate part of that billing month. HOSTFULLY reserves the right to modify its fees and charges and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to you, which notice may be provided by e-mail. All pricing terms are confidential, and you agree not to disclose them to any third party.

10. Billing and Renewal
HOSTFULLY charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. HOSTFULLY will automatically renew and bill your credit card or issue an invoice to you each year on the subsequent anniversary or as otherwise mutually agreed upon. The renewal charge will be equal to the then-current license fee in effect during the prior term, unless HOSTFULLY has given you at least 30 days prior written notice of a fee increase, which shall be effective upon renewal and thereafter. Fees for other services will be charged on an as-quoted basis. HOSTFULLY’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on HOSTFULLY’s income.
You agree to provide HOSTFULLY with complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes your legal name or company name, street address, e-mail address, and name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact and License Administrator. You agree to update this information within 30 days of any change to it. If the contact information you have provided is false or fraudulent, HOSTFULLY reserves the right to terminate your access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies. Unless HOSTFULLY in its discretion determines otherwise, entities will be billed in U.S. dollars and be subject to either U.S. or non-U.S. payment terms and pricing schemes at the discretion of HOSTFULLY. If you believe your bill is incorrect, you must contact us in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.

You will continue to be charged for User licenses during any period of suspension. If you or HOSTFULLY initiates termination of this Agreement, you will be obligated to pay the balance due on your account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. You agree that HOSTFULLY may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees.
