AGREEMENT PERIOD, TERMINATION and RENEWAL
The period of this agreement is 1 year. The agreement period runs from the date the subscription is contracted and paid until the same calendar day in the following year.
User's subscription to the products and services offered by Gemini CAD Systems will continue indefinitely until cancelled by User (via the cancellation mechanisms provided on the mycad.geminicad.com on My Subscriptions page). Certain subscriptions have a minimum commitment term, clearly visible for the User when the subscription is started. The User is able to effectively cancel the automatic renewal only at the end of the agreed commitment period. The cancellation option can be expressed prior to this moment but will only be applied at the end of the period. User agrees that Gemini CAD Systems, directly or through its billing partners will continue to charge the saved credit card through the entire commitment period.
After User's initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, User's subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price User agreed to when subscribing. User agrees that User's account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If User cancels a subscription, User may use such subscription until the end of then-current subscription term and the subscription will not be renewed thereafter. However, User will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.
By subscribing, User authorizes Gemini CAD Systems and its billing partners to charge User's credit card, debit card or other payment method at such time and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period, including any sales or similar taxes imposed on User's subscription payments. Upon the renewal of your subscription, if Gemini CAD Systems does not receive payment, User agrees that Gemini CAD Systems may either terminate or suspend User's subscription and continue to attempt to charge User's payment method provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, User's account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, User's new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received). Gemini CAD Systems may also seek payment directly from User. Charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise specified by Gemini CAD Systems when User initially subscribes to products and services.
