In order to create a Paid Account, or to change an existing Free Account to a Paid Account, you will be required to add details of a valid credit card to your Account.

The Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. Except as otherwise set out in these Terms of Service, you will not receive any form of refund or credit for months in which you upgrade or downgrade your Account (as set out below), months in which you cancel your use of the Service, or months in which you have an active Account but do not use the Service.
