MAINTAINING A VALID ACCOUNT, PRICES AND PAYMENT
A user account is required to access the Software and may be accessed and used only by those authorized individuals who are registered with DynaScape. To open a user account, you or your company must complete the registration process by providing DynaScape with current, complete and accurate information. In registering for the Software and Service, you and your company’s users agree to submit accurate, current and complete information about you and your organization, and promptly update such information. Should DynaScape suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, DynaScape has the right to suspend or terminate your use of the Software.
You agree to maintain a valid and up-to-date account, and to pay all fees or charges to your account in accordance with the fees, charges, and billing terms in effect at the time a fee or charge is due and payable. You must provide DynaScape with a valid credit card as a condition to signing up for the Software, Services, and Modules. DynaScape will automatically renew and bill your credit card or issue an invoice to you as follows: (a) every month for monthly subscriptions, or (b) every 3 months for quarterly subscriptions, or (c) upon the commencement of the annual term and then at each subsequent anniversary of that initial term for continuous annual subscriptions. The renewal charge shall be equal to the current number of Subscriptions (for Software Licenses, Services, Modules, Workstations, and Users), as specified in your account, unless DynaScape notifies you in advance to the contrary. You will have 14 days after the date that any renewal fee is posted to notify DynaScape that you wish to cancel your subscription, effective on receipt of such notification. For annual terms this notification period is extended to 180 days.
If timely payment is not received or cannot be charged to your credit card for any reason, DynaScape reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your access to the Software and account and terminate this Agreement. If DynaScape receives a cancellation notice from you, you will be obligated to pay the balance due on your account.

Non-payment designates your intent to cancel your subscription and that you no longer wish to use the Software. Following such Cancellation you must remove, within 90 days, the Software and Content from your Computer(s) and destroy or return all copies you hold of the Software and derivative works to DynaScape.
