All sub-networks, distributive hosting sites and dedicated servers of Demon-Host must adhere to the above policies unless otherwise excluded.
By the Account Activation Date of each month, Demon-Host shall either: (1) debit the client's credit card (when such information has been provided by the client); or (2) deliver, by e-mail or regular mail, an invoice in accordance with the applicable Service Fees for services rendered for the current month. When an invoice is delivered to the client, payment shall be remitted to Demon-Host by no later than the specified payment due date. Demon-Host will attempt to provide appropriate notice for such due fees. Demon-Host shall be entitled to immediately terminate this agreement for client's failure to make timely payments.
User will be provided with an invoice on a monthly basis (where applicable). Credit cards may be billed automatically on a monthly basis. It is the user's responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient credit to cover this transaction. In the event that there is insufficient credit, Demon-Host will send an e-mail notification, at which point Demon-Host will need to be provided with another credit card account number within 24 hours, or payment from another means. If Demon-Host does not receive a response within 24 hours, the account, and all accounts under that account plan, will be suspended.
If user terminates this agreement, user shall be responsible for any and all outstanding fees owed to Demon-Host and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by user. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, the client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month, regardless of when client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if the user provides notice of termination on the 15th day of a particular month, the user will be responsible for service fees for the entire month, and such fees will not be pro-rated or refunded.

After the 7 day period, no refunds will be provided.
