You are responsible for paying for all User subscriptions, whether or not such subscriptions are used. You must provide Entek Limited with valid credit card or approved purchase order information as a condition to subscribing to the Application. Added subscriptions will be subject to the following:

Where you have opted for automatic monthly charging of subscriptions, these will be processed against the same credit card on the same day of the month as the original subscription.
