Free trials are limited to 1 per person / entity. After a free trial ends, another free trial may not be ordered or utilized by the same person or entity.

Free Trials require a valid credit card to proceed and may be cancelled within the trial period with no cost.
7B – FEES
Unless stated otherwise, all services offered by HostedExperts Inc. are Paid Services. By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees at the specified time. Depending on the Paid Service subscription, there may be one-time fees, recurring fees, or revenue based fees. One time fees are due at the time the product or service is purchased. For recurring fees, we’ll bill or charge you for these products or services in regular automatically-renewing intervals (such as monthly, annually, or biennially), on a pre-pay basis until you cancel or your order / subscription is terminated by us. For revenue-based fees — such as fees for Recurring Payments for your Service subscriptions — you pay us a percentage of the revenue your website / Service generates. Revenue based fees are ongoing.
Taxes. To the extent permitted by law, or unless explicitly stated otherwise, all fees are exclusive of applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental sales, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees, or charges now in force or enacted in the future (“Taxes”). You are responsible for payment of all applicable Taxes relating to your use of our Services, your payments, or your purchases. If we are obligated to pay or collect Taxes on the Fees you’ve paid or will pay, you are responsible for such Taxes, and we may collect payment for such Taxes.
7C – PAYMENT
If your payment fails or if Paid Services are otherwise not paid for or paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may immediately revoke your access to our Services in general.
In the case fees for Paid Services are declined or reversed by You, any costs incurred by us as a result will be passed along to you with an additional charge of $35. These charges will be due immediately.
A late payment fee of 5% or $10 (whichever is larger) may be added to each due payment which is four (4) or more days overdue.
In the event that any amount due remains unpaid seven (7) days after it is due we may in our sole discretion immediately terminate this agreement, and suspend or terminate Paid Services.

Please note that we have no obligation to keep files, data or any other backups for terminated services so it is strongly recommended that you keep regular personal backups of all data within our system.
7D – AUTOMATIC RENEWALS
To ensure uninterrupted service, recurring Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any Taxes if applicable). By default, your Paid Services will be renewed for the same interval of time as your original subscription period. For example, if you purchase an annual subscription plan, you will be charged each year for the upcoming 12-month period. We may charge your account up to one month before the end of the subscription period. It is your responsibility to frequently review your email (including any spam or other filters) in order to receive any reminder emails we send to you in advance of your Service renewal.

Recurring subscriptions may be cancelled at any time from within your account or by contacting our Client Success Team.

If a valid payment option is not on file and we are unable to complete payment, a valid payment option must be provided so that payment can be successfully completed.
We reserve the right to cancel any account, subscription, Paid Services at any time and without prior notice at our sole discretion:
