  1. Paying for the Service
    Unless otherwise stated, all Your Subscription Charges are due in full upon commencement of the Subscription Plan. The Subscription Plan commences 30 Days after the date You register for the 30 Day free trial, or upon subscription to the Service by submitting billing details once the 30 day free trial lapses.

You authorise Figured to bill You in advance for Your Subscription Charges on a recurring basis, until You terminate these and You further agree to pay any Subscription Charges incurred during the time that the Service is used or subscribed to.

Where a new Subscription Plan is added to Your Figured Account, any additional costs payable by You will be pro-rated for the period of the Subscription Term which falls in the billing cycle.

As the Account Owner You will receive a receipt of payment from Figured, each time we receive payment, to track Your Subscription Plan and its status.

Figured uses a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing and this intermediary is not permitted to store, retain or use Your billing information, except to process Your credit card information for Figured. The Service provides an interface for You the Account Owner to change Your credit card information and billing details.

  1. Upgrading or Downgrading Your Subscription Plan
    If You change or elect to upgrade Your Subscription Plan during Your Subscription Term, any incremental charges associated with Your upgrade, will be pro-rated over the remaining period of the current Subscription Term. Your monthly Subscription Charge will immediately reflect any such upgrade.

Downgrading Your Subscription Plan may cause loss of content, features, or capacity of the Service You and Figured does not accept any liability for losses arising as a direct or indirect consequence of this.

    No refunds or credits for Your Subscription Charge will be provided if You elect to downgrade or terminate Your Subscription Plan during Your Subscription Term.

Eligibility for such preferential pricing or discounts is conditional upon Your acceptance of responsibility for payment of any Subscription Charges in relation to all of Your Subscription Plans. Without prejudice to any other rights that Figured may have under these Terms or at law, Figured reserves the right to render invoices for the full (non-discounted) Subscription Charges due or suspend or terminate Your use of the Service in respect of any or all of Subscription Plans in the event that any invoices for those Subscription Charges are not paid in full by the due date for payment.
