Subscription Services - Adding User Seats to your Account
All Subscription services contracts Terms are annual or multi-annual, whether they are paid with annually or in monthly installments payment terms.
You can add to Seats licenses to your subscription at any time during your term. Adding Seats during the Term of your subscription will increase your Seat License Fee obligation for the remainder of the Term of your subscription. If you pay annually then you will be invoiced a pro rata amount based on the remainder of the term of your subscription. If you pay monthly then you will be invoiced a pro rated monthly bill for the remainder of the month in which you add a user and then you will receive an adjusted monthly invoice based on your monthly subscription rate.
Subscription Services - Deactivating User Seats
All Subscription services contracts Terms are annual or multi-annual, whether they are paid with annually or in monthly installments payment terms.
User Seats can be deactivated any time throughout the term of the annual subscription. You can still access that user Seat and can invite other users to utilize those Seats for the remainder of your subscription contract Term.
Deactivating a user does not change your Seat License Fee and Payment Obligation. The Seat License and Payment Obligation will remain until the end of your contract term. You will not be issued a refund (for annual payment terms) or have your monthly fee obligation lowered (for monthly payment terms) even if that Seat license is not utilized. For example, if you start with 2 contract Seats for a 1-year contract and then deactivate one user at of the second month of your contract, you will still have 2 contract Seats on your Account until the end of your annual subscription Term, and you will be responsible to pay for that unused Seat according to your contract terms.
