SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS FOR PAID SUBSCRIPTIONS
IF YOU PURCHASE A PAID SUBSCRIPTION TO THE SERVICES THEN, IN ADDITION TO THE TERMS ABOVE, THE FOLLOWING SUPPLEMENTAL TERMS WILL ALSO APPLY TO YOU:
19. PURCHASING A SUBSCRIPTION
a. Purchase Process. The Website contains an online process for purchasing a Subscription. No part of the Website or your order constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Instead, your order to purchase a Subscription is an offer that we may accept or reject at our discretion. Our acknowledgment of receipt of your order does not mean that we have accepted it. We will indicate that we have accepted your offer by sending you a Subscription confirmation email. In the unlikely event that we do not accept or cannot fulfill your order for any reason, we will let you know and, in that case, we will not take any payment from you and will refund any payments you have already made for that order.
b. Accuracy of Order. Before completing your purchase, you will be given the opportunity to review your order for accuracy. Please ensure that you have checked your order carefully and provided accurate information before submitting it. We reserve the right to verify that you have entered a valid payment method prior to processing your order. If you discover you have provided us with incorrect or incomplete information, please contact us as soon as possible. If we do not receive accurate or complete information within a reasonable time, we will cancel your order. We will not be responsible for any delay in the availability of Services that results from you providing incorrect or incomplete information.
20. SUBSCRIPTION PLANS
a. Plans and Fees. We may offer different plan options with different prices and features (currently a “Basic” and a “Plus” Plan), for you to choose from when purchasing a Subscription (each a “Plan”). The features included in each Plan are described on a designated page of ACG’s website (currently at https://acloudguru.com/pricing) or at or near where you purchase the Services. We will charge you the fees associated with your purchased Plan and any applicable taxes (collectively, “Subscription Fees”) in accordance with these Terms.
b. Billing Cycles. We may also offer monthly, annual, or other length billing cycles (each a “Billing Cycle”) associated with the Plans. Your first Billing Cycle will begin on the date we grant you access to paid Services (your “Start Date”). Currently, the “Plus” Plan is only available on an annual Billing Cycle.
c. Renewals. MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTIONS AND BILLING CYCLES WILL RENEW ON A MONTH-TO-MONTH BASIS, AND ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTIONS AND BILLING CYCLES WILL RENEW ON A YEAR-TO-YEAR BASIS. EACH WILL RENEW ON THE DATE OF EACH SUBSEQUENT MONTH OR YEAR CORRESPONDING TO YOUR START DATE (OR THE DAY AFTER IF YOUR START DATE OF A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION DOES NOT OCCUR IN EVERY MONTH — FOR EXAMPLE THE 31ST) (YOUR “BILLING DATE”). YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL CONTINUE TO RENEW UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU OR WE CANCEL IT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS (EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE SERVICES). For example, if the Start Date is Aug. 10th, a monthly Subscription will renew on Sept. 10th, Oct. 10th, etc.; an annual Subscription will renew on Aug. 10th of the next year.
d. Payment Charges. YOU AUTHORIZE ACG TO CHARGE, AND ACG WILL CHARGE, THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION FEES TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD AT THE START OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AND ON A RECURRING BASIS ON EACH BILLING DATE, UNLESS AND UNTIL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION IS CANCELLED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE TERMS.
e. Changing Subscription Fees. WE MAY CHANGE OUR SUBSCRIPTION FEES FROM TIME-TO-TIME. CHANGES IN SUBSCRIPTION FEES WILL NOT AFFECT THE SUBSCRIPTION FEES FOR YOUR CURRENT BILLING CYCLE BUT WILL BECOME EFFECTIVE AS OF YOUR FIRST BILLING DATE FOLLOWING 30 DAYS AFTER WE INSTITUTE THE CHANGE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO SUCH A CHANGE, YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION.
f. Billing Information. You agree to provide us with valid, up-to-date, and complete contact, billing, and debit/credit card (or other accepted payment method) information. You can get a copy of your invoice through your account settings on the Website. On each Billing Date, we will make three attempts to bill your payment method as follows: (i) first attempt: on Billing Date; (ii) second attempt: five days after Billing Date; (iii) third attempt: ten days from Billing Date. Failed email notifications will be sent after each failed attempt, and your Subscription will be cancelled immediately after the third failed attempt. We may charge a fee for reinstatement of suspended or terminated Subscriptions. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse us for all expenses incurred to collect sums due, including reasonable attorney fees and other legal expenses.
21. CHANGES TO YOUR PLAN
You may make changes to your Plan at any time during your Billing Cycle.
a. Upgrades. If you “upgrade” to a higher-tiered Plan (for example, from Basic to Plus), your upgrade will be effective immediately. You will be charged the pro-rata amount associated with the upgrade for the remainder of your current Billing Cycle and then the full Subscription Fees for the upgraded Plan each Billing Cycle after that.
b. Downgrades. If you “downgrade” to a lower-tiered Plan, your downgrade will be effective as of the end of your current Billing Cycle. Once your downgrade is effective, you will no longer have access to any Services or Subscription Content that are only available with the higher-tiered Plan.
22. CHANGES TO YOUR BILLING CYCLE (Basic Only)
If you Subscribe to a Plan that offers both monthly and annual Billing Cycle options, you may change your Billing Cycle at any time.
a. Monthly to Annual. If you change from a monthly to an annual Billing Cycle, that change will be effective immediately. You will be charged the annual Subscription Fee, but will be credited a pro-rata amount for the days remaining in your Billing Cycle at the time you change and for any savings available as a result of changing to an annual Billing Cycle.
b. Annual to Monthly. If you change from an annual to a monthly Billing Cycle, that change will take effect as of the end of your current annual Billing Cycle. You currently cannot change from an annual to a monthly Billing Cycle with the Plus Plan.
23. CANCELLING YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
a. Cancellation by You. You may cancel your Subscription at any time, however your cancellation will not be effective until the end of your then-current Billing Cycle. As a result, you will not receive a refund for any Subscription Fees already paid, but you will continue to have access to the Services for the remainder of your current Billing Cycle. YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO YOUR NEXT BILLING DATE TO AVOID BEING CHARGED THE SUBSCRIPTION FEES FOR THE UPCOMING BILLING CYCLE. YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION THROUGH YOUR ACG ACCOUNT PAGE/SETTINGS OR BY CONTACTING SUPPORT@ACLOUD.GURU.

In the event of a Cancellation of Cause of your Subscription: (i) your right to use the Services will terminate and your access to the Services will be disabled; and (ii) you will not be entitled to a refund of Subscription Fees paid and will owe and will not be relieved of any current or future payment obligations for unpaid Fees applicable to your current Billing Cycle. In the event of a Cancellation for Convenience, you will receive a pro-rata refund of any Subscription Fees paid for the remainder of the current Billing Cycle and will not be charged any Subscription Fees for any future Billing Cycle.
24. EU REFUNDS
If you are a consumer in the European Union, you have a statutory right to cancel your Subscription and claim a refund at any time before the earlier of: (i) 14 calendar days after the date we send you a confirmation of your Subscription; or (ii) the time when you download or stream Services provided with your Subscription.
