You agree to pay all fees Pelago charges You for Your use of Intervals.

You may use Intervals for free for thirty days after the date ("Registration Date") on which You first register to use Intervals. Commencing on the date You enter Your billing information, Pelago will charge You for Your use of Intervals based on the plan ("Plan") You select (Mini, Basic, Not So Basic, Premium and Top Shelf) and at the rate(s) posted by Pelago on the Site and Intervals unless Your plan is the Free Plan.
Pelago charges and collects in advance of Your use of Intervals on a thirty day cycle. Such fees are due and fully earned on the first day of the Term (as that phrase is defined below) for which they are charged, provided this Agreement has not previously been terminated or cancelled in accordance with its terms. No refunds will be provided, or be due You, should You terminate or cancel this Agreement during a Term, for the fees charged or collected for the remaining portion of said Term.
Pelago may modify or increase its Fees, charges and Plans, and introduce new charges or Plans or eliminate any Plans at any time, upon at least 30 days prior notice to You. If, after You register to use Intervals, You elect to use a different Intervals Plan, the fees You will be charged by Pelago for Your use of Intervals thereafter will be modified in accordance with the posted rate(s) for the new Plan You have selected. The new rates and fees will be charged and due commencing on the first day of the Term following the Term in which You make Your election.
Pelago's fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and You shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on Pelago's income.
In accordance with Paragraph 8 above, Pelago will, and You hereby authorize Pelago to, automatically bill Your credit card every thirty days for fees due for Your access to Intervals for the ensuing thirty (30) days. You agree to provide Pelago with complete and accurate credit card, billing, contact and Account information. This information includes a valid credit card account number, the security number for said account, the credit card's expiration date, the identity of the credit card account holder, the type of card, and card holder's billing address, Your name, Your company name, street address, email address, name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact and administrator of these Terms of Service. You agree to update this information within thirty (30) days of any change to it. If the contact or credit card information You provide is false or fraudulent, Pelago reserves the right to terminate Your access to Intervals in addition to any other legal remedies. If You believe or have been improperly charged by Pelago, for any services or otherwise, You must give Pelago notice in writing within sixty (60) days of the date such charges are posted to Your credit card of your objection or claim to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit, or assert any claim or cause of action with respect thereto, or be forever barred.
11. Non-Payment and Suspension
In addition to any other rights granted to Pelago herein, Pelago reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and Your access to Intervals if Your account becomes delinquent (falls into arrears). Delinquent fees and charges are subject to interest of 1% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all actual expenses of collection, including attorney's fees. You will continue to be charged for use of Intervals during any period of suspension.
12. Term and Termination
This Agreement commences on the earlier of the date You register or commence use of Intervals. The Initial Term of this Agreement shall be for a period of thirty (30) days. Upon the expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement will automatically renew for successive renewal terms ("Term" or "Terms") equal in duration to the Initial Term at Pelago's then current fees as posted on the Site and Intervals. Pelago may terminate this Agreement at any time, effective immediately, for any reason in Pelago's sole discretion. During the first thirty days after Your Registration Date, You may terminate or cancel this Agreement at any time effective immediately, by notifying Pelago on the Site in the manner and as directed in the "Plan Info" section of Intervals.
