Billing, Renewal, Cancellation and Termination

  1. Individual Users are billed on periodic cycles (monthly or quarterly). Users are responsible for payment on the period billing date. Cancellation after the billing date will not result in a refund or credit, except as provided below in the case of automatic renewal of quarterly subscriptions. Ad Giants does not offer refunds or credits for unused time, incentives such as marketing dollars, or other subscription benefits.
  2. Monthly subscribers pre-pay on a monthly basis until the subscription is cancelled.
  3. Quarterly subscribers pre-pay on a quarterly (3-months) basis. No refund or credit is available if a quarterly subscriber downgrades the subscription prior to the end date of the subscription period, except during the first 14 days of a renewal subscription, as specified in this section. On the anniversary (end date) of a quarterly subscription, the subscription will automatically renew for one quarter and an e-mail billing confirmation will be sent to the subscriber, who will have 14 days from the date of the billing confirmation to cancel or change the subscription, and obtain a corresponding refund or credit, in accordance with Ad Giants' policies. No refunds or credits are granted for any changes or cancellations requested after that 14 day period. Any refund will be in the form of a credit to the credit card account to which the subscription was originally charged.
  4. HOW TO CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT.  You are solely responsible for properly requesting cancellation of 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 Customer Support link beneath the global navigation bar at the top of the screen. The Customer Support form provides a simple “Cancel Subscription” option in the “Reason for contacting us” drop-down menu.
  5. All of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once your Account is cancelled.
