Termination as per Customer's request is immediate and cannot be delayed to a later time.

Upon exhaustion of the limit of the monetary specifications of the Package, the Company automatically and immediately charges an additional fixed fee to the Customer’s Credit Card, (the amount of charge, unless otherwise agreed between the Company and the Customer, is as specified on the Website) ("the Extra Fee"), as consideration for Excessive Use. If the Extra Fee is higher than the actual consideration for the Excessive Use, the difference may be applied to cover additional use of the Product within the respective Service Month. If the consideration is not so used, it is transferred as credit to the consecutive Service Month, subject to the Customer purchasing the Product in such month.
Notwithstanding the aforesaid, Excessive Use for which the consideration (according to the Rates) does not exceed the determined limit (the amount of which is, unless otherwise agreed between the Company and the Customer, as specified on the Website) ("the Limited Excessive Use"), it does not incur the Extra Fee and is charged at the exact amount, to which any applicable taxes are added, on the first day of the consecutive Service Month.
