7 Trial, Billing and Payments
7.1 Each individual representing a business, as identified by a unique email address, is allowed one free trial of Textpop Premium for a 7-day period, unless agreed otherwise.
7.2 At the end of the 7-day trial period the Premium account will be blocked, unless the customer expressly chooses one of the other service plans, which in case of paid plans requires them to enter their billing information. Textpop does not take any responsibility for any loss of access to functionality and data when the Textpop application is downgraded from ‘Premium’ to ‘Basic’ or ‘Free’.
7.3 The Textpop paid service plans are billed on a monthly (this constituents the billing month and can be 28 days to 31 days depending on the calendar month) or annual basis and in advance.
7.4 When choosing for a monthly subscription, the customer receives a month’s (28 to 31 days as determined by the calendar month) access to the determined subscription once payment has been made. The customer will be automatically charged on the same day each month for continuous access to paid subscription. For example, a customer purchases a monthly ‘Enterprise‘ subscription on the 4rd of January, which entitles access to the 3rd of February. On the 4rd of February the customer’s paid account will auto-renew for the term of a month, and the customer will be charged via the billing information provided for the next month’s access. The Textpop application allows for the customer to update billing information.
7.5 When choosing for annual subscription, the customer receives a year’s access to the determined subscription once payment has been made. The customer will be automatically charged on the same date each year for continuous access to paid subscription. For example, a customer purchases an annual ‘Enterprise‘ subscription on the 6th of April, which entitles access to the 5th of April of the next year. On the 6th of April of the next year the customer’s paid account will auto-renew for the term of one year, and the customer will be charged via the billing information provided for the next year’s access. The Textpop application allows for the customer to update billing information.
7.6 If payment is not received by Textpop in the subscription activation or renewal process, the customer will be notified of this via email. Textpop will the try to bill the customer again. There are a total of four retries, over the course of eight days: after the first declined attempt, Textpop will retry every two days for eight days. The same email notification as the initial declined payment event is sent upon each failed attempt. After the fifth failed attempt, the subscription is auto-canceled (at which time a cancelation email is sent) and the account will be blocked. Textpop reserves the right to delete blocked accounts, including its content.
7.7 Customers can upgrade their subscription to another plan at any time. There are no refunds for downgrades or cancellations of accounts before the pre-paid month or pre-paid year has expired. If the customer upgrades during their pre-paid month or pre-paid year, the difference for the remaining days of their billing month or billing year will be charged pro-rata at time of upgrade. Thereafter the customer will be charged the new price for each subsequent billing month or billing year.
8 Termination / cancellation of service
8.1 Cancellation can be made within the Textpop application or by emailing a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
8.2 A cancellation becomes effective as of the ending of the applicable subscription period. When having chosen for a monthly subscription, the subscription terminates by the end the then applicable billing month period. When having chosen for an annual subscription, the subscription terminates by the end of the then applicable billing year period.
8.3 As soon as the cancellation becomes effective, the customer will no longer have access to the application or its content. Textpop reserves the right to delete cancelled accounts including all of its content.
