Cancellation, Suspension or Termination of Service
You may choose to cancel or cease your use of the Service without cause at any time by providing notice to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are also responsible for cancelling any subscriptions you have set up through PayPal. You will lose access to all of your content subsequent to cancellation and we will delete it in our normal course of business operations. This information cannot be recovered once your account is cancelled. If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid-up subscription period, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again, but no fees will be refunded.
If you are a Google Apps user, then you can delete our product from your Google Apps account at any time. Note that this does not represent a cancellation of our service because users often delete and then re-add our product to their account, without wanting to cancel our service. If you wish to cancel our service, then you need to inform us so that we can complete the cancellation process as described above. We do not offer refunds in the instance that you forget to contact us directly to cancel your account.
