Thank you for using the ENVOY platform and the products, services and features we make available to you as part of the platform (collectively, the “Service”).
ENVOY has yearly and monthly membership plans.
Your ENVOY monthly membership plans will continue month-to-month until terminated in accordance with section 6 of the Subscription Services Agreement.
Your ENVOY yearly membership plans will continue year-to-year, unless otherwise agreed, until terminated in accordance with section 6 of the Subscription Services Agreement.
Unless you validly terminate your membership before your monthly renewal date, you authorize us to charge your next month’s membership Fee to your Payment Method. To use the ENVOY service you must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (“Payment Method”).
ENVOY may charge your Payment Method such amounts which are from time to time owed by you for the Services including (as applicable) taxes and service fees, set up fees, add-on fees, subscription fees, or any other fee or charge associated with the Services (together, the “Fee”). A full overview of fees is available on www.envoy.is.
The Fee will be billed on a monthly basis to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership. In some cases, the timing of your billing may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month. If an option to pay yearly is selected by Customer the respective yearly fee will be charged to your Payment Method.
You can change your Payment Method directly from your ENVOY dashboard, when available. If a payment is not successfully settled due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not change your Payment Method or cancel your account, without limiting our rights or remedies, your access to the Services may be suspended until we have obtained a valid Payment Method. ENVOY is authorized hereby to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges which shall be your sole responsibility. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
You can cancel your ENVOY membership in accordance with section 6 of the Agreement, and you will continue to have access to the ENVOY service through the end of your billing period. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month membership periods. To cancel, send an email with a request to email@example.com or submit one from your ENVOY dashboard, when available.
ENVOY may change its service plans and the price of the Services from time to time; provided, however, that ENVOY will provide you with prior notice and an opportunity to terminate the Agreement if ENVOY changes the price of a Service to which you are subscribed and will not charge you for a previously free Service unless you have been notified of the applicable fees and agreed to pay such fees.
