4 Payments and Subscriptions

4.1 Fees and Payments

The Service is available under subscription plans of various durations. You may also have additional fees and subscriptions, or an invoice billing option as part of an Additional Agreement or Special Terms. Your subscription will automatically be renewed at the end of each subscription period unless you inform us you wish to cancel your subscription. At the time of automatic renewal, the subscription fee (“Fee”) will be charged to the payment method last specified by you. We provide the option of changing these payment details if needed.

4.2 Trials

If you are currently on a free trial, you may downgrade or cancel your account, free of charge, at any time until the renewal date communicated when you started the trial. The last day of the trial signifies the due date of the first payment.

Unless we notify you otherwise, if you’re participating in a trial offer, you must cancel the Service before the end of the trial period to avoid incurring any charges. If you do not cancel your Service before the renewal date, your Service will convert into a paid subscription and you authorise us to charge you as described in these Terms.

4.3 Grace Period

ClearCalcs offer a grace period of 5 days from the date of monthly subscription renewal, and 30 days from the date of annual recurring plans. This is offered to protect users who may have forgotten to cancel their subscription or trial to the service, or who have stopped using the service. To receive this refund, You must contact us before the grace period ends and must not have used the Service during this time.

4.4 Cancelled or Lapsed Subscriptions

If you cancel your paid subscription, or your trial lapses and is not renewed, your account will revert to the basic free tier. You’ll still be able to edit and update personal data, including billing information, as well as view and download past Content you’ve already created, but there will be some restrictions on editing and creating further content on the free subscription. The retention of Content is offered as a service for our lapsed customers however we reserve the right to delete this Content from the Service in future if your account remains off of a paid subscription and you do not access your data for a reasonable period of time. Should we exercise our right to delete this Content in your account, we will notify you at least 30 days in advance and provide you with the opportunity to download your data. For more information about how we handle your data, refer to our Privacy Policy.

4.5 User Numbers

You acknowledge that the Fee is set in accordance with the maximum account usage limits and/or number of unique user accounts provisioned to access the Service for your account during the subscription period (“Usage”).

We will monitor your Usage, including the number of users to whom you have granted access to the Service. Should you exceed the Usage level that you’ve paid for, we reserve the right from time to time to issue an invoice for this additional Usage at the same terms as the usage and/or cap the your account’s usage level.

4.6 Overdue Payments

If you fail to pay your account on time, You must contact us so we may discuss a resolution. We may, at our sole discretion, accept an alternative arrangement, however, whilst any part of the Fee remains overdue we reserve the right to restrict functionality of the Service, including restricting the creation of new calculations or materials.

If a resolution is not reached using the means described above, and any part of the Fee remains more than 30 days overdue, we reserve the right to do one or more of the following:

  1. Charge interest on the unpaid amount of the lesser of seven percentage points above the 90 day bank bill rate or the maximum rate permitted by law, calculated daily on and from the 31st day the unpaid amount is overdue; and
  2. Change the due dates (by giving you notice) of your subsequent subscription Fees to require earlier or frequent payment by you;
  3. Suspend or cancel access to the Service; or
  4. Terminate this agreement immediately by providing notice to you. You must pay for all reasonable costs we incur to collect any past due amounts, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and other legal fees and costs.

4.7 Price Changes

ClearCalcs may change the price for the Subscriptions from time to time, and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. If there’s a specific length and price for your Service offer already in effect, that price will remain in force for that time. Otherwise, price changes for Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next applicable subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by cancelling your subscription to the Service prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.

6 Beta Sheets

From time to time, ClearCalcs may make available ‘Beta’ sheets or features on the platform. These sheets and features will be clearly marked as ‘Beta’ and are still undergoing final testing before official release. The “Beta” labelling implies that while the core features of the software have been implemented, substantial bugs and issues may still remain undiscovered, and as such, ClearCalcs do not advise or recommend their use in production jobs. These Beta features and sheets are made available expressly to preview upcoming functionality, and provide users the opportunity to test and provide feedback on the changes.

Should you encounter any bugs, glitches, lack of functionality or other problems on the website, please let us know immediately at so we can rectify these accordingly. Your help in this regard is greatly appreciated.
