7.4 Credits which are unused within the relevant month or year do not expire; they remain available to the use for the duration of their subscription to the relevant Plan.  There is no limit to the number of credits you can accrue. However, if your subscription to a Plan terminates, all accrued credits will expire and be forfeited.

7.5 If you subscribe to a Plan, then at the start of each monthly or yearly billing cycle you will be automatically debited with the monthly or yearly fee for that Plan and you will be credited with the relevant number of monthly or yearly credits for that Plan.  Your first billing cycle will commence on the date you join the Plan, and the billing cycles will continue on a rolling monthly or yearly basis after that.

After such 30 day period you may not be able to access Your Content even if you re-subscribe to your former Plan or subscribe to a different Plan.  

7.9 If you choose to upgrade to a more expensive Plan, your subscription to the new Plan will begin on the date you elect to do so, and you will be immediately entitled to the extra credits and features which apply to your new Plan. Your pre-existing balance of credits will be preserved.

7.10 If you choose to downgrade to a less expensive Plan, your subscription to the new Plan will begin upon expiry of the then-current monthly or yearly billing cycle for your current Plan.  Upon commencement of your new Plan, you will become entitled to the credits and features for that new Plan, however any unused credits from your prior Plan, and any unused “top up” credits you have purchased, will not be preserved and will be forfeited.  

7.11 We may in our discretion discontinue any of our monthly or yearly Plans at any time. If we do this in respect of the plan that you are on, we will notify you and we will inform you of the date your Plan will terminate (which will be at the end of a monthly or yearly billing cycle). After that, you will no longer be charged monthly or yearly fees, and you will no longer be entitled to use the Service, unless you select another Plan from the Plans we have on offer.
