If such changes are not acceptable to you, you may terminate your subscription by providing us with written notice, which termination shall become effective upon the end of your current billing cycle.
5.3. Upon the end of each subscription cycle, your subscription will be automatically renewed for successive subscription cycles, unless you notify us, by email to email@example.com, that you wish to terminate your subscription. Your account and subscription will be terminated as soon as we process your request, usually within two business days.
5.4. Changes you make in your subscription package, scheme or amount will take effect in the subsequent subscription cycle. If you exceed the limits of your subscription package, your subscription will be automatically upgraded to a package suitable for your scope of use, as of the subsequent subscription cycle.
5.5. All Fees are quoted in US Dollars, unless expressly stated otherwise. Fees are payable by Stripe, or Google Pay with all major credit cards. We may, from time to time, and without specific notice to you, add additional payment methods to the then-current payment methods, or cease to use previously supported payment methods.

If you terminate your account and subscription, you are not entitled to any refund (pro-rata or otherwise), for any Fees you have paid for the terminated subscription.

Payment methods are therefore subject not only to these Terms, but also the terms and conditions of these third parties pursuant to your contractual relations with them. You acknowledge that the third parties processing any of the payment methods may charge you a commission on their end of the transaction. We are not responsible for such commission, which is strictly within your contractual relations with the relevant payment processor.
5.10. Fees that we are unable to charge through the payment method you provided are deemed an overdue Fee. Failure to settle any overdue Fee within ten (10) calendar days of its original due date will constitute a material breach of these Terms.
