Selection of Service Plan
Client will select one of the service plans offered by Provider, and agrees to receive services according to the service plan selected.
Payment for Services
Client will pay for services provided under this Agreement by credit card authorization given to Provider. When initiating service, Client will be charged the published setup fee for the service plan selected, as well as a pro rated partial month charge according to the service plan for the number of days remaining in the calendar month from the time of initiation of service until the end of the month in which service is initiated. On or about the first day of every month thereafter, Client's credit card will be charged for monthly payment for services according to Provider's published schedule. If this Agreement is terminated on some day other than the last day of the month, Client will be obligated to pay for only the pro rated portion of the monthly service plan charge for the month in which the service is terminated.
This Agreement may be terminated by Client or Provider at any time without prior notice and without cause. If either party is in default under this Agreement (including nonpayment), then the non-defaulting party may also immediately terminate the Agreement without prior notice to the other party.
