Our decision in that respect is final. If we feel that we can’t reasonably determine the rightful owner, we reserve the right to suspend an Account or site until the disputing parties reach a resolution. We also may request documentation, such as a government-issued photo ID, credit card invoice or business license, to help determine the rightful owner.

It is really important that you comply with data protection laws when using the services, such as when you record others’ personal information.

7. Paid Services And Fees
  1. Fees
  2. You can access the Services by submitting a fee payment (such additional services, "Paid Services"). Paid Services will remain in effect until cancelled or terminated in accordance with this Agreement. You may cancel Paid Services at any time via the Services. If you don't pay for Paid Services on time, we reserve the right to suspend or cancel your access to the Paid Services. Our fees will appear on an invoice that we provide via email. Please note that different Paid Services have different fees, and canceling one Paid Service may not cancel all your Paid Services.
  3. Automatic Subscription Renewals
  4. To ensure uninterrupted service, we'll automatically bill you for certain Paid Services from the date you submit your initial payment and on each renewal period afterwards until cancellation. Your renewal period will be equal in time to the renewal period of your current subscription. For example, if you're on a monthly subscription plan, each billable renewal period will be for one (1) month charged on the same day of the month similar to when you activated your account. If a month does not have the anchor day, the subscription will be billed on the last day of the month. For example, if your subscription started on January 31 your payment will be processed on February 28 (or February 29 in a leap year), then March 31, April 30, and so on. We’ll automatically charge you the applicable amount using the payment method you have on file with us. You can cancel auto-renewal at any time via the Services. Cancelling your auto-renewal payment will result in cancelling your account.
  5. Cancellation
  6. You can cancel your ISO Notes membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the ISO Notes service through the end of your monthly billing period. To the extent permitted by the applicable law, payments are non-refundable and we do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month membership periods or unused ISO Notes features. To cancel, login into your account and go to the "Profile Settings" page. You can use this page to change your monthly subscription type or proceed to cancel your subscription. If you cancel your subscription, your account will automatically prevent you at the end of your current billing period to use more resources. We may attempt to keep your data for a period of 7 days, for protection of your data in case you decide to resume your membership.
  7. Refunds
  8. While you may cancel any Paid Services at any time, you won't be issued a refund except in our sole discretion, or if legally required. We offer a free trial so you can try out your subscription. Please note applicable statutory rights of cancellation may not result in a refund, as we do not charge for this trial period.
  9. Free Trial
  10. If a subscription commences with a free trial or a promotional period, you will have the right to cancel the subscription prior to the end of the trial or period. If we do not provide you with an online cancellation mechanism, then you may exercise this cancellation right by contacting us via CONTACT US page or via Customer Support email. All of our subscription plans offer a free trial for period of 30 days. We will charge your Payment Method for your monthly membership fee at the end of the free trial period unless you cancel your membership prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the monthly membership price and end date of your free trial period, visit our website, login into your account and go to the "Profile Settings" page. We will email you prior to the end of the free trial to remind you that the trial is coming to an end, and to give you an opportunity to cancel before the commencement of the paid period. If you do not cancel, we will bill you at the end of the free trial period, and your subsequent cancellation rights will be in accordance with the terms specific to the subscription.
  11. Fee Changes
  12. We may change our fees at any time. We’ll provide you with advance notice of these fee changes via the Services. New fees will not apply retroactively. If you don't agree with the fee changes, you have the right to reject the change by canceling the applicable Paid Service before your next payment date.
  13. Chargebacks
  14. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline, chargeback or otherwise reverse the charge of any payable fees to us ("Chargeback"), we may automatically terminate your Account. If you have questions about a payment made to us, we encourage you to contact us via Customer Support email before filing a Chargeback. We reserve our right to dispute any Chargeback.
  15. Our Payment Processor
  16. We use a third party payment processor (the "Payment Processor") to bill you through a payment account linked to your Account. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor, in addition to this Agreement. Our current Payment Processor is Stripe, and your payments are processed by Stripe in accordance with Stripe’s terms of service and privacy policy . You agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any purchase in accordance with the applicable payment terms. You agree to make payment using the payment method you provide with your Account. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our Payment Processor to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment has already been requested or received.
