9. Your Obligation to Pay Us
In return for us providing these Products and Services to you, you must pay
us the relevant fees, charges and costs notified to you and as may be amended
by us from time to time ("Fees"). We will use commercially reasonable efforts
to notify you of any increase in these Fees from time to time. If you do not
agree to pay those increased Fees you must, within 20 days of receiving that
notice from us notify us in writing or by email that you do not accept the
increase. Upon receiving that notice from you, unless agreed by us, your
right to use the subject Products and Services will cease. In the event that
no other Products and Services are then the subject of our agreement, the
Agreement will immediately terminate. If we do not receive any notices from
you in accordance with this clause and you continue to use the Services after
20 days from our initial notification, you agree that you are deemed to have
consented to the increase in Fees.
Despite the provisions of this clause:
i. You are solely responsible for the use of the Products and Services and
for all payment of any Fees arising from the use or provision of the Products
or Services, whether or not the user had your authority.
ii. Records held and logging procedures adopted by us in relation to usage by
or provision of your Products and Services are prima facie evidence that you
have used or ordered that Product and Service as indicated.

may be) of Products and Services as follows:
monthly in advance in the first 10 days of each month for
recurring monthly charges.

variable usage charges.
Annually in advance for annual recurring fees.
Where you agree to pay us by credit card, your credit card will
be debited the due amount on the date that the bill is issued.
Where you have arranged a credit account with us, payment will be
due on the 20th day of that month. If your account is not paid within 10
days of the due date, we reserve the right to charge a late payment fee on
any overdue amounts on an invoice at the rate of 15% per annum of the
amount overdue, calculated from the due date to the date of actual payment
in full. You agree that this late payment fee is a genuine pre-estimate of
damage we will suffer as a result of your late payment and is not a
penalty. In addition, we may impose a charge on you to cover our
reasonable expenses and costs incurred in enforcing any failure or delay
in your payment.
iv. You must pay Goods and Services Tax and any taxes, duties, stamp
imposts, levies or government charges relating to the Agreement or the supply
or usage of the Services or Products.

notice to you.
vi. You are responsible for the cost of any communication expenses you incur
to access the Products or Services.

fail to pay your accounts by the due date and we refer your failure to any
debt collection agency or other like body, in the event you seek to reconnect
to the Products and Services, you acknowledge and agree that we may require
that you initially pay such Fees as represent two months in advance for the
Products and Services to be acquired by you. Such Fees are payable at the
time of re-connection of your Products and Services.

you, you must pay the undisputed charges and notify us immediately you become
