11. Charges, Payments and Refunds.
(i) Subscription Charges. Charges for plans are posted on the website and may be changed from time-to-time. Payments are due for any month on the same date, or the closest date in that month, to the date of the month You activated the Services of the Application and made your first monthly payment (the “Pay Date”).
(ii) Trial period offers. Unless the Company notifies You otherwise, if You’re participating in any trial period offer, You must cancel the Services by the end of the trial period to avoid Incurring new charges. If You do not cancel Your Services, You authorize the Company to charge Your Payment Method (defined in Section 11c below).
b. Price changes.
The Company expressly reserves the right to change or modify its prices and fees at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be posted online at the www.LotMonkey.com website and effective immediately without need for further notice to You.

c. Payment Method.
Except as prohibited in any product-specific agreement, you may pay for Services by providing a valid credit card, an electronic check (from your personal or business checking account, as appropriate), PayPal (as defined below) (each, a “Payment Method”). Confirmation for orders will be sent to the email address on file for Your Account. Your Payment Method on file must be kept valid if you have any active Services in your Account.
d. Late payments.
Except as prohibited by law, we may assess a late charge if You do not pay on time. You must pay these late charges when the Company bills You for them. The late charge will be the lesser of 1 percent of the unpaid amount each month or the maximum rate permitted by law. The Company may use a third party to collect past due amounts. You agree to pay for all reasonable costs the Company Incurs to collect any past due amounts, Including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other legal fees and costs. The Company may suspend or cancel Your service if You fail to pay in full on time.
In order to ensure that you do not experience an interruption or loss of Services, most Services offer an automatic renewal option. The automatic renewal option automatically renews the applicable Services for a renewal period equal in time to the original service period. For example, if your original service period is for one year, your renewal period will be for one year. The automatic renewal option Is the default setting. Therefore, unless you disable the automatic renewal option, the Company will automatically renew the applicable Services when it comes up for renewal and will take payment from the Payment Method you have on file with the Company at the Company’s then current rates, which you acknowledge and agree may be higher or lower than the rates for the original service period. In order to see the renewal settings applicable to you and your Services, simply log into your Account and follow the steps found there. You may enable or disable the automatic renewal option at any time. However, should you elect to disable the automatic renewal option and fail to manually renew your Services before they expire, you may experience an interruption or loss of Services, and the Company shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.
f. The Company may participate in “recurring billing programs” or “account updater services” supported by your credit card provider (and ultimately dependent on your bank’s participation). If you are enrolled in an automatic renewal option and we are unable to successfully charge your existing Payment Method, your credit card provider (or your bank) may notify us of updates to your credit card number and/or expiration date, or they may automatically charge your new credit card on our behalf without notification to us. In accordance with recurring billing program requirements, in the event that we are notified of an update to your credit card number and/or expiration date, the Company will automatically update your payment profile on your behalf. The Company makes no guarantees that we will request or receive updated credit card information. You acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to modify and maintain your Account settings, Including but not limited to
(i) setting your renewal options and
(ii) ensuring your associated Payment Method(s) are current and valid. Further, you acknowledge and agree that your failure to do so, may result in the interruption or loss of Services, and the Company shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.
g. If for any reason the Company is unable to charge your Payment Method for the full amount owed for the Services provided, or if the Company is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, you agree that The Company may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment. If you pay by credit card and if for any reason the Company is unable to charge your credit card with the full amount owed for the Services provided, or if the Company is charged back for any fee it previously charged to the credit card you provided, you agree that the Company may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment. You agree that the remedies the Company may pursue in order to effect payment shall Include, but not be limited to, immediate cancellation of Services to You. The Company reserves the right to charge you reasonable “administrative fees” or “processing fees” for:
1. tasks the Company may perform outside the normal scope of its Services,
2. additional time and/or costs the Company may Incur in providing its Services, and/or

These administrative fees or processing fees will be billed to the Payment Method you have on file with the Company
You may cancel Services at any time, with or without cause. See Section 15 of this Agreement for information on terminating Your Account. Some service offers may require You to pay cancellation charges as stated in the materials describing the offer. Your cancellation of Services won’t alter Your obligation to pay all charges made to Your Account.
(i) You agree to pay any and all prices and fees due for Software and Services purchased as part of the Application. All prices and fees are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly noted, even if Your Services are suspended, terminated, or transferred prior to the end of the Services term.

You agree to cooperate with the Company in our efforts to do this.
