4.1 Paid Accounts. You can upgrade your free account to access paid features, which will automatically convert your free account into a 'paid account'. Your paid account will remain effective until it is cancelled or terminated under this Agreement, in which case your account will revert back to a free account. When you upgrade to a free account, we will automatically bill you from the date you converted your account to a paid account and on each periodic renewal (whether it be monthly or annually). If you cancel your paid account, the cancellation will take effect the day of your cancellation and you will be downgraded to the free version of the Service. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods. You are responsible for all applicable taxes, and we will charge tax when required. We may change the fees applicable to a paid account but will give you advance notice before those changes take effect and any price change will apply to your next billing cycle. You can cancel your paid account at any time via emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.2 Automatic Billing Cycles. To ensure uninterrupted services, all subscriptions to Kona Equity (including all paid accounts) are renewed automatically using the credit card we have on file.

If you don't cancel your Subscription, you authorize Kona Equity to automatically charge you the agreed price each month until you cancel the Subscription.
4.3 Renewal and Cancellation. Your applicable payment to Kona Equity will automatically renew at the end of the applicable Subscription period, unless you cancel your Subscription before the end of the then-current Subscription period. You may cancel your Subscription at anytime by emailing email@example.com. The cancellation will take effect immediately, unless your agreement has a 12 month minimum for which it will take effect the day after the last day of the current Subscription period, and you will be downgraded to the free version of the Service. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial subscription periods.
4.4. Subscription Fees. In consideration for the Services, you will have to pay the applicable, non-refundable subscription fees set forth in the Subscription Plan (“Subscription Fees”) at such times and for such periods as set forth therein. Your payment may be processed through a third party payment processing service, and additional terms may apply to such payments. We reserve the right to use other third party payment processing services for such purposes in the future. Unless otherwise stated in the Subscription Plan, all amounts payable under this Agreement are non-refundable, non-cancellable, and exclusive of all sales, use, value-added, withholding, and other direct or indirect taxes, charges, levies and duties. For all versions of the Services, we reserve the right in the future to charge a fee for features and/or uses which are currently made available free of charge. Any failure to pay applicable charges may result in you not having access to some or all of the Services.
4.5. Suspended Accounts. In the event that a user's account is suspended for any reason, including but not limited to violation of our terms of service, the user will still be responsible for any fees owed for the use of our platform and will continue to be billed until the account is terminated or the user cancels their subscription.
