II.I Accessing the Service, Security and Changes

Also, we will not be liable if, for any reason, all or any part of the Service is unavailable at any time or for any period. As stated, this is a beta version and rolling new features might impact the reliability of the Service. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Service, or the entire Service, to users including registered users.
To access the Service, You are provided with a secure username, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures. You must treat such information as confidential, and You must not disclose it to any third party. You agree to immediately notify Company of any unauthorized use of Your user name or password or any other breach of security.

In the future, You may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. It is a condition of Your use of the Service that all the information You provide on the Service is correct, current, and complete.
We have the right to disable any user identification code or password, whether chosen by You or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including, if in our opinion, You have failed to comply with any provision of these Terms of Service.
Certain parts of the Service require the creation of a user account with third parties to provide their products or services with IPLytics.io. As a Customer, you are responsible for reviewing any applicable terms before participating in any part of the Service to which such terms apply.
III.I Subscription terms
IPLytics.io offers a range of subscription plans to its Service (each, a “Plan”).
You will select Your Plan as part of Your registration for the Service, which may begin with a Free Trial (as defined in Section III.c (“Free Trial”) herein). Each subscription period for a Plan will be based on the subscription period chosen/sold (e.g. annually, bi-annually, quarterly, monthly). You may choose to be billed for the Plan annually or in less than annual increments (e.g. monthly or bi-annually), but regardless of Your billing cycle, You are responsible for subscription fees for the entire subscription period chosen/sold.
At the end of Your current subscription period, Your Plan will automatically renew for a subscription period equal to Your prior subscription period unless You provide IPLytics.io with email notice (sent to billing@IPLytics.io) of Your intent not to renew Your Plan at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current subscription period.
To view the specific details of Your Plan, including pricing information and the end date of Your subscription period, login to Your account on the IPLytics.io Service and go to the “Settings” page or contact us at billing@IPLytics.io.
III.II Billing, refunds, overages, and upgrade and downgrade terms
The fees for Your Plan are billed in advance of each billing cycle.
In the event You cancel Your Plan, no refunds or credits will be provided for partial or unused months of the Service.
If You upgrade Your Plan level, You will immediately be charged for the increased price of the upgraded Plan – pro-rated to reflect the remaining duration of Your subscription period. You will also be charged the full amount of the then-current rate for the new Plan, as provided at www.IPLytics.io/pricing, beginning with Your next billing cycle.
If You desire to downgrade Your Plan level prior to the end of Your subscription period, please provide written notice to billing@IPLytics.io. The Plan downgrade will take effect the first billing cycle that occurs more than thirty (30) days following Your notice to IPLytics.io, and You will not receive any refunds for payments made on Your current billing cycle. Downgrading Your Plan may cause the loss of account content, features, or capacity. IPLytics.io disclaims liability for any such loss.
Any discounts applied to a previous subscription may not apply to a renewed subscription, including to any automatic renewals.
Any questions involving upgrades or downgrades to Your Plan can be directed to billing@IPLytics.io.
III.III Free trial
Subscriptions to the Service may begin with a free trial period during which You can try out the Service in a limited capacity for 14 days from the date You register (“Free Trial Period”).

If You do not cancel during your Free Trial Period you will automatically be billed at the Startup Kit subscription tier at the end of the Free Trial Period, which will automatically be renewed until canceled.
IPLytics.io reserves the right to modify, cancel and/or limit the Free Trial Period without notice at any time.
III.IV Changes in fees
We may change the fees for the Service at any time or impose additional fees or charges.
Such changes will be effective as of the first billing cycle that occurs more than thirty (30) days after notice of our new fees, provided that if You upgrade or downgrade to a new Plan, You will be charged at the then-current rate for such Plan, as provided at www.IPLytics.io/pricing.

As an express condition of Your use of and access to the Service, You agree to pay all fees applicable to Your Plan, any other fees for additional services You may purchase, and any applicable taxes in connection with Your use of the Service.
We will bill the fees due under Your Plan to the billing information You provide to us during registration (or to a different billing information if You change Your payment information). You acknowledge that the amount billed for each renewal period may vary due to promotional offers, changes in Your Plan, and changes in applicable taxes, and You authorize us to bill You the corresponding amounts.
We reserve the right to deactivate Your access to the Service for failure to pay applicable fees as described in this Agreement. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are stated in U.S. Dollars.
All fees for Your Plan will automatically be billed to the billing information you provided . You authorize the account issuer to pay any amounts described herein and associated with Your Plan and authorize us (or a billing agent acting on our behalf) to continue charging all such amounts until You or we cancel or terminate Your Plan as provided herein or these amounts are paid in full, whichever is later.
You must provide current, complete and accurate billing and credit card information. You must promptly update all billing information (such as billing address, card number and expiration date) to keep Your account current, complete and accurate, and You must promptly contact IPLytics.io if Your credit card is lost or stolen, or if You become aware of a potential breach of account security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of Your IPLytics.io username or password).
You authorize us to obtain or determine updated or replacement expiration dates for Your credit card in the event that the credit card You provided us expires. We reserve the right to charge any renewal card issued to You to the same extent as the expired card. If payment is not received from Your credit card issuer, You agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. You agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of Your credit card may charge You a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which You will be responsible to pay. Please check with Your bank and credit card issuer for details.
III.VII Account cancellation
You may cancel Your Plan upon 30 days notice by either calling us and speaking to an authorized account representative or sending an email to billing@IPLytics.io.
For clarity, if You cancel Your plan prior to the conclusion of Your current subscription period, You will remain responsible for payment for all subscription fees through the conclusion of Your current subscription period.
