You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that such communications be in writing. You also consent to receiving certain other communications from us, such as newsletters about new AvePoint features and content, special offers, promotional announcements and customer surveys via email or other methods.

You cannot opt out of essential communications regarding your account, such as renewal notices.
5. Subscription, Free Trials, Billing and Cancellation
i. Auto-Renewing Subscription. Your AvePoint subscription, which may start with a free trial, will continue for the term, which may be month-to-month or year-to-year, selected on the Subscription Set Up page and thereafter designated in the Subscription Management menu of the AvePoint Software (the “Term”) unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it, both in accordance with the terms of the MSLSA. You must have Internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, "Payment Method") to use the AvePoint Software. We will bill the regular membership fee to your Payment Method. You must cancel your membership before it renews each Term period in order to avoid billing of the next Term period’s subscription fees to your Payment Method.
b. Free Trials
i. Your AvePoint subscription will start with a free trial. The free trial period of your subscription lasts for thirty (30) days, or as otherwise specified by AvePoint during sign-up. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply. AvePoint reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine any customer’s free trial eligibility.
ii. We will begin billing your Payment Method for the Term period’s subscription fees at the end of the free trial period of your subscription unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the specific details of your subscription, including regular subscription price and end date of your free trial period, visit the Subscription Management menu within the AvePoint Software. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one Term period of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.
iii. You will receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your subscription has begun. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on the Term period’s basis for your subscription fee until you terminate in accordance with the MSLSA.
i. Third Party Payment Processor. AvePoint reserves the right to use a third party payment processor for all billing and receipt of payments hereunder. AvePoint will not be storing your credit card information but will use a PCI-DSS compliant third party processor for any credit card processing hereunder.
ii. Recurring Billing. By starting your AvePoint subscription and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a subscription fee per Term period at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the AvePoint Software to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each Term period may vary from Term period to Term period.
v. No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any termination, all rights and licenses granted hereunder and in the MSLSA shall immediately terminate and you must cease use of the Software.
vi. Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by accessing the Subscription Management menu in the AvePoint Software. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
vii. Termination. You may terminate your AvePoint subscription at the end of the relevant subscription term in accordance with the MSLSA. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-TERM SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS. Please see the MSLSA for all termination terms and conditions. If you signed up for AvePoint subscription Software using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, and wish to terminate your AvePoint subscription at any time, including during your free trial, you may need to do so through such third party, including by visiting your account with the applicable third party. You may also find billing information about your AvePoint subscription by visiting your account with the applicable third party.
