Certain aspects of ViralSweep are provided for a fee. If you choose to use paid aspects of the Service, you agree to the pricing and payment terms below.
ViralSweep may add new services for additional fees, or amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in its sole discretion. Any pricing changes or payment terms shall become effective in the billing cycle following notice of such change to you as provided in these Terms of Service. ViralSweep reserves the right to change or add new fees, but will provide 30 days advanced notice of these changes via email notifications.
ViralSweep accepts credit cards and will automatically charge your credit card each month or year depending upon which payment option you select.
If your credit card expires during or after your billing period and you continue using ViralSweep, your continued use constitutes authorization for us to continue billing that credit card and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information and payment information current and up to date. If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or ViralSweep is unable to process your credit card for the transaction, ViralSweep reserves the right to suspend or revoke access to your account.
Fees will be billed from the date you convert to a paid account on each monthly or yearly renewal thereafter, until you cancel your account. ViralSweep will automatically bill your credit card each month or year on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paid account. All fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.
Unless you notify ViralSweep before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel, your subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you.
