In addition, you shall not remove any proprietary notices or labels.

PAYMENT AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS
The Service is billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service or refunds for months unused with an open account. If you have purchased a paid subscription to the Site and Service, your subscription will automatically renew for additional, successive subscription periods equal in duration to the initial subscription period that you initially purchased unless you terminate your subscription prior to the next renewal period. You acknowledge and agree that DSL will automatically charge your credit card on record with DSL for the then-current subscription period upon the commencement of any renewal period. You will provide DSL with valid and updated credit card information and you authorize DSL to charge such credit card for all purchased subscriptions and renewals.
You may terminate your subscription to the Site and Service at any time and you will not be obligated to pay any additional fees for upcoming subscription renewal periods but any subscription fees you have paid in advance will not be refunded. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, the credit card attached to your account will automatically be charged or credited the new prorated amount for the current month. The new plan rate will apply from your next billing cycle i.e. from the next time we charge your card. For example, assume you are on the Starter plan at $25/mo and decide to upgrade to the Growth plan at $149/mo halfway through a billing cycle. At the point you upgrade, there will be an automatic charge to your credit card of the pro rata amount - in this case $62 which is half of the difference between $149 and $25. From the next billing date you will be charged at the new plan rate of $149/mo. Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of content, features, or capacity of your Account. DSL does not accept any liability for such loss.
By using the Site, you consent to receiving electronic communications from DSL. These electronic communications may include notices about applicable fees and charges, transactional information and other information concerning or related to our Site and Service. These electronic communications are part of your relationship with DSL and you receive them as part of your subscription to the Site and/or Service. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that such communications be in writing.
CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION
You are solely responsible for properly cancelling your account. An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation. You can cancel your account at any time by clicking on the 'Account' link in the global navigation bar at the top of the screen. The ‘Account Details’ tab screen provides a simple no questions asked cancellation link. All of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once your account is cancelled. If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up month, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again. DSL, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other DSL service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all Content in your Account.
