- Recurring Billing
When signing up for a premium tier offered by Xtensio (as detailed here: https://xtensio.com/pricing), you agree to the features and pricing of the selected tier. The features and pricing of the premium tiers are subject to change at any time and at Xtensio’s sole and exclusive discretion. Notice of the changes will be made available to you here (https://xtensio.com/pricing) and will be effective upon notification. Upon activation of the selected premium tier, you authorize us to charge you either monthly or annually, per your request when you signed up, at the then current rate.
Upon activation of the premium tier, your first subscription cycle will be billed immediately. Your subscription will auto-renew and you will be billed on the same date each month. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, as indicated below, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled. In the event your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we may bill your Payment Method on a day in the applicable month or such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started your Xtensio subscription on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your Payment Method would be billed on that date.
We may, from time to time, and at our sole and exclusive discretion, offer you a referral program whereby you may earn a free month of a premium tier subscription for each new premium tier account you refer to us. If at the time of the referral you already have an active subscription, your free month will be applied at the end of your current billing period. If at the time of the referral you do not have an active subscription, we will automatically apply the free month of membership to your account starting on the date that the referred account is activated.
You may edit your Payment Method information by logging into your Xtensio account. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, your premium tier account will be automatically cancelled and you will be downgraded to a free account (see, “Termination” below). In such a case, your access to and ability to edit some or all of Your Content will be restricted. You may also be asked to archive or delete some of Your Content in order to conform to the limits of a free account.
You may terminate your monthly or annual subscription at any time prior to the end of your current billing period. You agree that Xtensio, in its sole and exclusive discretion and for any or no reason, may terminate any account (or any part thereof) you may have with Xtensio or use of the Properties and remove and discard all or any part of your account or any content uploaded by you, at any time. Xtensio may also in its sole and exclusive discretion and at any time discontinue providing access to the Properties, or any part thereof, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Properties or any account you may have or portion thereof may be effected without prior notice, and you agree that Xtensio will not be liable to you or any third party for any such termination. Termination of your account does not relieve you of any payment obligations.
PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period.
Where applicable, you are responsible for paying all taxes related to your use of the Properties.
Privacy and Security
We make efforts to maintain the security of our Properties. For example, we arrange for encryption, firewall, antivirus, and spyware protection to the extent that we deem advisable to protect your personal information and conduct our business. However, we do not guarantee the security of the Properties, our records, your submissions, or anything else. We disclaim all liability for any computer virus or technological problems that we do not intentionally cause.
