If you want to cancel after we start supplying services during the second or any subsequent month you have to give at least 30 days’ notice to the above e-mail address. The provision of the Services commits us to incurring costs with Google. We will begin providing the Services when the Payment Administrator informs us of receipt of each contractual payment of the Fees.  Accordingly, all Fees paid are non-refundable. If you do not want to renew the Services it is your responsibility to notify us at the above address.

If you cancel your payment instruction to your bank, or we are unable to take payment against the card number you submitted for any reason, we may suspend the Services immediately and/or terminate the Contract (without prejudice to our rights to recover any amounts that remain due to us on the termination date).
