Cancellations will take effect on the last day of the billing period in which the cancellation was processed by the cancellation team, subject to the terms of the “Subscription Billing” paragraph above. Cancellation of an account does not dismiss outstanding invoices or nullify previously agreed charges, such as payments for third party fees, charged in installments or annual contract charges, portions of which may not yet have been invoiced when you cancelled. At the time of cancellation, any outstanding balance must be settled. All cancelled accounts with an outstanding balance may be turned over to a third-party collection service.

Regardless of the outcome of the chargeback, Checkout Champ retains the right to collect on any Services or fees that are due. Checkout Champ may submit any disputed amounts to a collection agency. Once a chargeback has been received, Checkout Champ has the right to suspend the account until the matter is resolved.
Subscription and Service fees are non-refundable and will not be prorated at any time.
