If the user has not been able to use the service for a period due to the takeover and we can see through usage logs that they normally use it regularly, we will reimburse them for the period during which they have not been able to use the service.

If you terminate your account, you will retain access to the features for which you have already paid until the end of the current billing period, and you will not receive a refund for any amounts you already paid. You agree to pay any applicable taxes, and reimburse us for any collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts.

If you receive a free offer for a specific number of days, you will not be charged during the free offer time period, but will be automatically charged on the day after your free time period has ended for the subsequent period, in advance. Thereafter, you will be charged at regular intervals depending on your choice of service (monthly, annually, etc.) until you decide to cancel. Please make a note of when your free offer will expire as you may not receive additional notice prior to the automatic charge if you do not cancel before the free offer time period expires.

You may cancel your TransLegal subscription at any time by visiting the cancellation page (http://www.translegal.com/cancel), which termination shall have effect at the expiry of the then-current subscription period.
