Fees, charges, payments and Refund Policy
All charges payable by the customer to WebMatric for the Services will be in accordance with the relevant scale of charges and rates published from time to time by on the WebMatric website and will be due and payable each month, in advance of service use. The customer’s account will only be created and set-up for use once the first monthly payment has been received in full by WebMatric.

Upon ordering a service through the WebMatric website and accepting these General Terms and Conditions, the customer will be charged for the first month’s service in advance. The billing cycle begins from the date they register, even if the Service provided by WebMatric does not become fully operational at that time. By accepting these Terms and Conditions the customer acknowledges that they will be direct debited four (4) weekly from the nominated credit card, from the original date of sign-up, until the account is terminated as per the ‘Suspension, Termination of Service’ section of these Terms and Conditions.

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure there are sufficient funds available on the credit card being debited. If WebMatric tries to process a payment and is unsuccessful for any reason, the customer will be informed via Email and WebMatric will attempt to re-debit the account seven (7) days later. Should the debit be unsuccessful in the second attempt and no alternative payment method is agreed to between WebMatric and the customer, WebMatric will suspend the account until payment for the next billing month is received. Suspended accounts will be charged an additional fee of $9.50 to be reactivated. Accounts which have been suspended for a period of three (3) months or more may be terminated by WebMatric. Terminated accounts will be completely removed from our servers, with all associated customer data deleted. The customer acknowledges that WebMatric will not be held liable for any loss on behalf of the customer due to a terminated account. Reactivation of a customer’s account after termination has occurred is subject to the General Terms and Conditions and fees associated with all new accounts.

The provision of services is contingent upon WebMatric receiving payment in full from the customer in respect of the Services provided. Without prejudice to other rights and remedies under this agreement, if any sum payable is not paid on or before the due date, WebMatric reserves the right, to suspend the provision of all Services provided to the customer.

If a customer’s account is closed for any reason, the customer must pay all outstanding charges immediately. Failure to pay all outstanding charges may result in the account being passed to a third party collection agency. If a customer’s outstanding account is passed onto a third party collection agency the customer will be charged the full outstanding amount of the WebMatric accounts plus any fees, charges and/or commissions associated with the costs of the collections agency.
