Usage charges are charged as and when such charges are incurred or by accumulating such charges (in the sole discretion of Amfax). Amfax may, in its sole discretion, require a pre-payment deposit towards usage, or any applicable fees, before delivering services. Such pre-payment deposits are made to secure advantaged terms or pricing for the services and are COMPLETELY NON-REFUNDABLE. Such pre-payment deposits must be used within six (6) months of the date deposited.

USE OF CREDIT CARDS.
At Amfax's sole discretion, and subject to an electronic payment premium, payment for services may be made by the credit card designated by you for Amfax use and transactions. If the payment method for your Amfax account is by credit card and payment is not received by Amfax from the card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Amfax. Each time you use Amfax Services, or allow or cause Amfax Services to be used, you agree and reaffirm that Amfax is authorized to charge your designated card. Your card issuer's agreement governs your use of your designated card in connection with Amfax, and you must refer to such agreement (not this Agreement) with respect to your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that Amfax may (at its option) accumulate charges incurred during your monthly billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each cycle, and that Amfax may delay obtaining authorization from your card issuer until submission of the accumulated charge(s). This means that accumulated charges may appear on the statement you receive from your card issuer.
You agree that Amfax may submit charges for your usage fees and monthly service fee (if applicable) each month, without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice (in accordance with Amfax' verification procedures, as may be established by Amfax from time to time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your designated card. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Amfax reasonably could act on your notice. If you have any question regarding any charges that have been applied to your account, you must contact Amfax' Customer Service Department within 30 days of the charge date. Failure to use your account will not be deemed a basis for refusing to pay any charges submitted by Amfax in accordance with this Agreement.
Amfax reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Amfax account without notice upon rejection of any card charges or if your card issuer (or its agent or affiliate) seeks return of payments previously made to Amfax when Amfax believes you are liable for the charge. Such rights are in addition to and not in lieu of any other legal rights or remedies available to Amfax.
