Payment and Renewal

In consideration for providing the Services applicable to the relevant Subscription, Customer agrees to pay to Pocket Passport the Fees, without any set-off or deductions of any kind, as such order process may be amended from time to time in accordance with the terms hereof. Payment for the Fees shall be due and payable as specified in the order process. Due to the nature of the technology required to produce the Services and Internet instability, service interruptions may occur from time to time. No full, partial, or prorated refunds of the Fees will be made as adjustment for any such service interruption. Customer hereby acknowledges that changes in the nature of this Site’s Services that may be offered under these Terms that are beyond the control of Pocket Passport do not constitute grounds for any full or partial refund of any advance fees paid.

Prices set out in the order process are exclusive of all taxes and Customer shall pay (and Pocket Passport shall have no liability for), any taxes, tariffs, duties and other charges or assessments imposed or levied by any government or governmental agency or similar body in connection with this Agreement, including any payment due pursuant to this agreement, including, without limitation, any federal, state/provincial/territorial and local sales, use, goods and services, value-added and personal property taxes on any payments due to Pocket Passport in connection with this Agreement, except for tax based solely on the net income of Pocket Passport.

Fees for Subscription will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day Customer signs up for a Subscription and will cover the use of that Service for a monthly or annual Subscription period as indicated. Fees are not refundable.

Pocket Passport shall have the right to increase the prices for its Service at any time. Customer’s continued use of the Services shall be deemed acceptance of any price increase.

Unless you notify Pocket Passport before the end of the applicable Subscription period that you want to cancel a Subscription, your Subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly Subscription Fee (as the case may be) for such Subscription (as well as any applicable taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time in the Profile section of this Site. No refund will be made in the event that you request to cancel a Subscription after it has been purchased in accordance with these Terms.

DATA YOU ENTER INTO THE SERVICES, AND ANY CUSTOMIZATIONS MADE TO THE SERVICES BY OR FOR YOU, DURING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD WILL BE PERMANENTLY LOST AND/OR DESTROYED AND/OR WITHHELD UNLESS YOU CONTINUE A SUBSCRIPTION TO THE SAME SERVICES AS THOSE COVERED BY YOUR EXISTING SUBSCRIPTION OR PURCHASE UPGRADED SERVICES. YOU CANNOT TRANSFER DATA ENTERED OR CUSTOMIZATIONS MADE DURING THE SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD TO A SERVICE THAT WOULD BE A DOWNGRADE FROM THAT COVERED BY THE SUBSCRIPTION (FOR EXAMPLE, FROM A HIGH LEVEL MEMBERSHIP TO LOWER LEVEL MEMBERSHIP); THEREFORE, IF YOU PURCHASE A SERVICE THAT WOULD BE A DOWNGRADE FROM THAT COVERED BY YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, YOUR DATA MAY BE PERMANENTLY LOST AND/OR DESTROYED.
