If the Client terminates a Subscription to DBL within 30 days of the date on which the Subscription became effective or was renewed, no refunds will be provided and the Client must pay for the initial 30 days of the Subscription, but no payments will be due for the remaining portion of the terminated Subscription. If the Client terminates a Subscription to DBL at any other time during the term, the Client must payoff the remainder of the Term, and no refunds will be provided. DBL reserves the rights, at its own discretion, to provide refunds if deemed necessary.
