5. Fees, Payment, and Renewal
a. My Review Portal Fees
Fees for Paid Services. Some of our Services are offered for a fee, such as Single Accounts, Enterprise Accounts, etc. (collectively, “Paid Services”). By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees. Depending on the Paid Service, there may be one-time fees, recurring fees, or revenue-based fees (based on map use and still in development). For recurring fees, we’ll bill or charge you for in regular automatically-renewing intervals (such as monthly, annually, or biennially), on a pre-pay basis until you cancel, which you can do at any time by contacting the relevant support team.
Taxes. To the extent permitted by law, or unless explicitly stated otherwise, all fees are inclusive of applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental sales, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees, or charges now in force. (“Taxes”).
Payment. If your payment fails or if Paid Services are otherwise not paid for or paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may revoke your access to our Services in general.
Automatic Renewal. To ensure uninterrupted service, recurring Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any Taxes). By default, your Paid Services will be renewed for the same interval of time as your original subscription period. For example, if you purchase a MyReviewPortal.com annual plan, you will be charged each year for the following 12-month period. We may charge your account up to one month before the end of the subscription period. It is your responsibility to make sure you are checking your email (including any spam or other filters) in order to receive any reminder email we send to you in advance of renewal. The date for the automatic renewal is determined automatically based on the date of the original purchase and cannot be changed. You can view your renewal date for MyReviewPortal.com Paid Services by visiting your Account page.
Cancelling Automatic Renewal. You can manage and cancel your Paid Services at your Account page. To cancel a MyReviewPortal.com plan, go to your Account page, and click on “cancel” under membership section. You must repeat this process for each subscription you wish to cancel.
Fee Changes. We may change our fees at any time, or start charging fees for Services that were previously free. When applicable, we may give you advance notice of the fee changes. If you don’t agree with the fee changes, you must cancel your Paid Service.
Refunds. While you may cancel a Paid Service at any time, refunds are issued in our sole discretion, unless otherwise required by applicable law.
b. Fees Collected by Website or Business Owners
Fees Paid to outside Websites or Business Owners. Business owners may choose to sell items (goods, content, services, etc.),or simply collect payments not relating to MyReviewPortal.com. Please note that we are not involved in outside businesses' subscription details, or a website’s store operations (including the quality, timing, pricing, or legality of what may or may not be included in exchange for payment, or any goods or services purchased). If you purchase items or subscriptions from another website or business, your purchase is directly from the website or business owner, who is solely responsible for the items sold. Please contact the website owner if you have any questions or complaints.

We will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.
