Services and Support
1.1 By posting updated versions of the Agreement on the Zuuvi website, or otherwise providing notice to you, Zuuvi may modify the terms of this Agreement and may discontinue or revise any or all other aspects of the Services at its sole discretion. All such changes shall become effective upon posting of the revised Agreement on the Zuuvi website. Your continued use of the Services will constitute your acceptance of the variation to the Agreement. Zuuvi will use reasonable efforts to make you aware of any changes to the terms of this Agreement. If you elect to discontinue using the Services due to any changes to the Agreement made under this section 1.1, you will be entitled to a refund for any unused, prepaid amounts for the Services.
1.2 The Services are available only to persons who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Services are not available to individuals under the age of 18. If you do not qualify, your use of the Services is expressly prohibited.
1.3 The Services prices are subject to change at any time. All fees paid to Zuuvi for the Services are non-refundable, unless an account is terminated by you under clause 1.1. For all new account plan users – except “Zuuvi Trial”, the minimum signup time is 1 month.

Fees and Payments
14.1. Fees for Services. You agree to pay to Zuuvi any fees for each Service you purchase or use (including any overage fees), in accordance with the pricing and payment terms presented to you for that Service. Where applicable, you will be billed using the billing method you select through your account management page. Fees paid by you are non-refundable, except as provided in these Terms or when required by law.
14.2. Subscriptions. Some of our Services are billed on a subscription basis (we call these “Subscriptions”). This means that you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis (each period is called a “billing cycle”). Billing cycles are typically monthly (30 days) or annual, depending on what subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle unless you cancel auto-renewal through your online account management page, or by contacting our customer support team. While we will be sad to see you go, you may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription at any time, in which case your Subscription will continue until the end of that billing cycle before terminating. You may cancel auto-renewal on your Subscription immediately after the Subscription starts if you do not want it to renew.
14.3. Taxes. Unless otherwise stated, you are responsible for any taxes (other than Zuuvi’s income tax) or duties associated with the sale of the Services, including any related penalties or interest (collectively, “Taxes”). You will pay Zuuvi for the Services without any reduction for Taxes.
14.4. Price Changes. Zuuvi may change the fees charged for the Services at any time, provided that, for Services billed on a subscription basis, the change will become effective only at the end of the then-current billing cycle of your Subscription. Zuuvi will provide you with reasonable prior written notice of any change in fees to give you an opportunity to cancel your Subscription before the change becomes effective.
14.5. Overage Fees. Unless otherwise stated, any overage fees incurred by you will be billed in arrears on a monthly basis. Overage fees which remain unpaid for 30 days after being billed are considered overdue. Failure to pay overage fees when due may result in the applicable Service being limited, suspended, or terminated (subject to applicable legal requirements), which may result in a loss of your data associated with that Service.
