PAYMENT OF FEES, TERM AND TERMINATION
5.1 Free plan is a Plan that has no monthly fees associated. Trial is a 10-day long period starting the day Customer chooses a paid plan option and ending when Customer makes the initial Services Free payment. If the account's Plan is free and during Trial, the capacity and functionality of Services might be reduced to ensure the best possible performance and quality for Customers using non-free Plans.
5.2 To pay the initial Services Fee associated with the chosen Plan, Customer needs to fill "Invoice Data" form and "Credit Card Details" form available after clicking "Payments Setup" button on the page https://monique.io/settings/billing. Data entered into "Invoice Data" form will be used to create an invoice for each payment. Data entered into "Credit Card Details" form is used to identify a credit / debit card that will be charged Services Fee each month. The "Credit Card Details" form and charging the identified cards are handled by a third-party, SecurionPay, Online Payments Group AG, Sihleggstrasse 23, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland.
5.3 Each monthly Services Fee payment is made upfront, i.e. a payment made on a given day subscribes Customer to the Services associated with the chosen Plan, starting from that day and lasting a month. When a current monthly subscription ends, it is automatically renewed and a Services Fee payment is made for the next monthly subscription - unless either party requests termination of this Agreement.
5.4 ("Satisfaction-guarantee period") If Customer is not satisfied with the Services, Customer might request issuing a refund for Services Fee payments made in the last 30 days. The request must be sent by email to email@example.com. The refunded payment will be made in 5 business days since receiving the request. Additional delays might occur due to processing by a third-party payment gateway, SecurionPay. After issuing the refund, the Customer's account will be closed and this Agreement terminated.
5.5 ("Overage usage") If Customer enables overage usage (the setting is available on the page https://monique.io/settings/billing), Customer's credit card will be charged additional fees (other than Services Fee), for each overage package that was added to Customer's account. An overage package is added to a Customer's account when the capacity of the chosen Plan, plus the capacity of previously added overage packages, is lower than the usage of the Services by Customer for a given billing period. The pricing and the capacity of an overage package is specified on the pages https://monique.io/settings/billing and https://monique.io/pricing. Customer sets the limit of the number of automatically added overage packages on the page https://monique.io/settings/billing. By default, no overage packages can be added automatically (and no additional fees, other the Serives Fee, are applicable).
