Services Policy. Some of our services are automatically renewed monthly. For these services, payment is due on the first day of the renewal period. Accounts are in default if payment is not received within 30 days after renewal date. Accounts unpaid 30 days after date of invoice will have service interrupted or terminated. Such interruption does not relieve You of the obligation to pay the monthly Fee. Only a written request to terminate Your service relieves You of the obligation to pay the Monthly Fee. Accounts in default are subject to an interest charge on the outstanding balance of the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted by law. You agree to pay Fourth Estate’s reasonable expenses, including attorney and collection agency fees, incurred in enforcing our rights under these Terms and Conditions. Prices are exclusive of any taxes which may be levied or assessed upon the Equipment or services provided hereunder. Any such taxes shall be paid by You. If You are exempt from otherwise applicable taxes, You must submit Your tax identification number and exemption certificate at the same time You purchase the services. Fourth Estate reserves the right to change the rates for this service by notifying You 30 days in advance of the effective date of the change, however such rate change will not apply where You have prepaid the subscription. Service may be canceled only upon 30 days advance written notice. In the event of early cancellation of a Term Commitment without cause, You will be required to pay 100% of Fourth Estate's Monthly Fee for each month remaining in the Term Commitment. 'Cause' shall be defined as any performance related issue readily attributable to Fourth Estate, in which You have notified website support and Fourth Estate has failed to cure such issues in a reasonable time. Fourth Estate reserves the right to remove content from postings on the site. This may include information deemed inappropriate by Fourth Estate or contact information such as phone numbers, addresses or e-mail addresses in places on the site where other methods of communication are required. This may also include information deemed inappropriate by Fourth Estate. If You are not satisfied with Your product or service, please call Fourth Estate at 202-850-0909.

Fourth Estate Refund Policy. Since our network primarily offers non-tangible, irrevocable goods we do not issue refunds once the order is processed and the services are provided. As a customer, You are responsible for understanding this upon purchasing any service in our network of websites. For several of our services, Your active and timely participation is crucial to our ability to effectively tailor and craft services to meet Your needs. If You have not provided the information we have informed You is necessary to craft Your documents within 12 months of our requesting such information, You are not entitled to a refund for the Writing Services purchased. In addition, issues concerning special offers or services offered on behalf of our affiliates must be dealt with directly with the appropriate affiliate and are not an issue for a refund or chargeback from us. However, as exceptional circumstances may sometimes occur, we will honor requests for returns or refunds in the following situations:

Sometimes Your e-mail provider or Your own mail server may have mailing problems which prevent You from receiving a delivery e-mail from us. In this case, please contact Customer Service for assistance. Claims for non-delivery must be submitted in writing within 7 days from the order date. Otherwise the product or service will be considered received and downloaded.

Problems relating to downloading or unzipping documents must be submitted to Customer Service. We will assume that You have successfully downloaded the product ordered if we do not hear from You within 3 days of expected delivery and You will have no further right of redress or refund for a "download issue" reason.

If You believe that the product or service is not-as-described, please contact Customer Service within 7 days from the date of the order or purchase. Clear evidence must be provided proving that the purchased product is not as it is described on the website. Complaints which are based merely on the customer's false expectations or wishes will not be honored.

Please note: We do not assume any responsibility and therefore we do not satisfy any refund/return/exchange requests based on incompatibility of our products or services with third-party software (plug-ins, add-ons, modules, search engines, scripts, extensions etc.). We do not guarantee that our products or services are fully compatible with all third-party programs and we do not provide technical support for third-party applications.

Fraudulent Credit Card Charges or Fraudulent Claims. All requests to negate charges are investigated by our technical department and Customer Service department. If You make a fraudulent claim of unauthorized card usage, we will report this to the credit card services. This report may result in cancellation of Your card services. Account information collected (including IP address and contact information) relating to any fraudulent charge or claim may be provided to a third party for investigation.
