All changes will be posted by InternetFax on the InternetFax Websites and you are responsible for regularly reviewing such pricing information to obtain timely notice of such changes.

Charges for Services may include activation, recurring subscription, and usage fees. Your activation and recurring subscription fees are payable in advance and are COMPLETELY NON-REFUNDABLE. Usage charges are charged as and when such charges are incurred or by accumulating such charges (in the sole discretion of InternetFax) in accordance with the usage rates applicable to each of the Services you use.
Your payment plan may include a monthly allowance of free faxes, phone calls, emails, or contacts. In the event that you have exceeded your rate plan's allotted allowance you will be automatically charged usage fees for each fax, call, email or contact in excess of your monthly allowance. Unused allowances are not transferrable from month to month.
Payment of your InternetFax account balance is due monthly and, unless you have a qualified business account, must be made by the credit card designated by you for InternetFax use and transactions. If your InternetFax account is a qualified business account and is approved by InternetFax for corporate billing, charges will be accumulated, identified by Customer identification number and invoiced on a monthly basis.
If you subscribed for Services pursuant to a special offer granting you a free trial period, your activation fee and an initial monthly Services fee will BE PRE-AUTHORIZED AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD OR DEBIT CARD LIMIT (meaning the amounts pre-authorized will not be considered available credit or debit funds in such account) and will be immediately charged to your credit or debit card, without further authorization from you, upon the expiration of such free trial period, unless you provide prior notice (in accordance with InternetFax verification procedures, as may be established by InternetFax from time to time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before InternetFax reasonably could act on your notice.
Charges are to be paid on a monthly basis in the currency in which billed. A failure to pay the charges is a material breach of this Agreement and grounds for termination by InternetFax. If the payment method for your InternetFax account is by credit card and payment is not received by InternetFax from the card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by InternetFax. Each time you use the Services, or allow or cause the Services to be used, you agree and reaffirm that InternetFax is authorized to charge your designated card. Your card issuer's agreement governs your use of your designated card in connection with InternetFax, and you must refer to such agreement (not this Agreement) with respect to your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that InternetFax may (at its option) accumulate charges incurred during your monthly billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each cycle, and that InternetFax may delay obtaining authorization from your card issuer until submission of the accumulated charge(s). This means that accumulated charges may appear on the statement you receive from your card issuer.
You agree that InternetFax may submit charges for your usage fees and recurring subscription fee each month or year, without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice (in accordance with InternetFax' verification procedures, as may be established by InternetFax from time to time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your designated card. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before InternetFax reasonably could act on your notice. If you have any question regarding any charges that have been applied to your account, you must contact InternetFax' Customer Support within 30 days of the charge date. Failure to use your account will not be deemed a basis for refusing to pay any charges submitted by InternetFax in accordance with this Agreement.

If the Customer resides outside of Canada, the place of residency will be deemed not to be Canada unless InternetFax is notified otherwise. If your residency status changes, you will notify InternetFax and be required to provide a mailing address and proof of residency. Non-Canadian residents will be deemed not to have registered for G.S.T unless InternetFax is notified otherwise.
