Invoices are generated fourteen (14) days prior to your service renewal date.
It is the obligation of the Zarbyte customers to know when their account comes up for renewal and, if their intention is to non-renew their account, they must contact us 5 business days prior to their account's renewal date to ensure that the billing department can stop any renewal charges. Zarbyte clients receive email notifications 14 days prior to the renewal date of their account, informing them that their renewal date is approaching. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that Zarbyte has a valid email address for which notices can be sent to Zarbyte clients. If Zarbyte does not receive a cancellation request prior to the customer's renewal, Zarbyte will renew the clients' account 24 hours prior to the renewal date, and will apply charges as appropriate. Accounts will be automatically renewed on the renewal date and be billed under the same fee structure as the plan that the client signed up for (unless plan changes were made or upgraded between the time when the client signed up & their renewal date). In the case of insufficient funds to charge such amount, you agree to allow Zarbyte to place your account on a recurring payment plan, wherein we will collect a partial term quantity to avoid an interruption in service and to protect against accidental loss of intellectual property.
