The free plan entitles new, registered users to a one-time free usage of the Services. An upgrade from the free plan to any paying plan will end your free plan. You will be billed for your first month immediately upon upgrading. Fees may exclude taxes or duties imposed by governing authorities. You alone are responsible for payment of all such taxes or duties. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.

You may cancel your account at any time by clicking the “Delete your account” button in the “Account Settings” page.  An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation.
