Acceptance of Terms.
Fees and Payment.
Though many of our Services are currently free, we reserve the right to require payment of fees for certain or all Services. You shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Site in connection with such Services selected by you. We reserve the right to change our price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Site; new prices will only take effect at the end of your then-current Program (defined below) term. Your use of the Services following such notification at the end of your then-current Program term constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.
If you choose to enroll in our Smallstep Professional or Compliance program (the “Program”), you will be charged a monthly subscription fee. The subscription fee for these services (“Subscription Fee”) will be charged to you monthly in arrears based upon consumption, to the credit card you provided upon enrollment in the Program. Subscription Fees are non-refundable. Your enrollment in the Program will be automatically renewed every month; if you wish to cancel auto-renewal of the Program for the following month, you must notify us in writing at least fifteen (15) days prior to the end of the then-current Program term. We may change the Subscription Fee upon notice to you, but such change will only take effect once your then-current Program term has ended. If you do not wish to pay the new Subscription Fee, your exclusive remedy shall be to cancel your enrollment in the Program for the following month, at least fifteen (15) days prior to the expiration of your then-current Program term. You may cancel your Program subscription at any time, but again, no refunds will be granted for Subscription Fees already paid.

Upon termination notice from Smallstep, you will no longer access (or attempt to access) the Service. All provisions of this agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers and limitations of liability.
