If the contact information you have provided is false or fraudulent, PRLeap reserves the right to terminate your access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies.
A. Monthly Plans
Monthly Plans are billed in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. Unused Monthly Plan credits expire at the end of your billing cycle. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
For any upgrade in plan level, the credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate. Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. PRLeap does not accept any liability for such loss. If you downgrade your plan, you will be charged the new lower rate at the next billing cycle.
If a press release you submit is not distributed within 30 days of the earlier of the (i) date on which you enter such material or (ii) pay for the Service for reasons other than a delay caused solely by PRLeap, then PRLeap's service to you concerning such Submitted Material and/or payment shall be considered complete, and PRLeap shall have no further obligation to you regarding such Submitted Content or in relation to such payment.
B. Rollover Releases
- If applicable to your monthly plan, keep your unused press releases and carry them over to the next month. Example: If you have a monthly plan that includes 10 press releases, and one month you only use 7 press releases, next month you have 3 Rollover Releases.
- Rollover Releases are used only when other press releases have been depleted for the billing cycle. Example: if you have a monthly plan that includes 10 press releases, and one month you submit 13 press releases, the excess of 3 releases will be deducted from your Rollover Releases balance.
- Expiration: Rollover Releases will expire immediately upon default or if you change to a plan with no carry over.
- Downgrade: If you change plans, any accumulated Rollover Releases in excess of your new plan will expire.
- Rollover Releases are not redeemable for cash or credit and are not transferable.
C. Cancelling your Monthly Plan
Your PRLeap Monthly Plan will continue in effect until you cancel your Monthly Plan or we terminate it. You must cancel your Monthly Plan before it renews each month or year in order to avoid billing of the next month's or year's fees to your credit card. The Service will bill monthly or yearly fees associated with your Monthly Plan to the credit card you provide to us during registration (or to a different card if you change your account information).
If you wish to cancel your Monthly Plan you may do so via your "Account" page. Should you elect to cancel your Monthly Plan, please note that you will not be issued a refund for the most recently (or any previously) charged monthly fees.
By signing up for a PRLeap Monthly Plan and providing the Service with your payment account information, you hereby agree to these payment terms and conditions.
You may elect to pay-per release or buy "Press Release Credits" to use our Service, as explained on the "Pricing" page of our website, rather than sign up for a monthly plan. If you elect to "Pay-Per-Release" all the terms of this Agreement will still apply to you other than the requirement that you pay us monthly.
Pay Per Release: Credits are good for 30 days when you pay per release and one year when you prepay for a bulk of credits as explained on the "Pricing" page of our website.
