CHARGES, FEES, PAYMENT AND TAXES. Fee(s) details are described on this purchase confirmation page and in your invoice. You are responsible for all of your fees, charges and expenses in connection with the Services and Content. For any Services and Content received, you will pay Twitter for all charges and fees you incur in connection with the Services and Content and in the currency designated by Twitter. You are required to prepay for the Services and Data which will be charged monthly in accordance with the terms herein. You authorize Twitter to bill your credit card or charge card (“Credit Card”), for any and all charges and fees you incur in connection with the Services or Content, including recurring payments. The types of Credit Cards that Twitter accepts and the timing of the billing of the charges and fees may vary according to the Services and country; however, Twitter does not knowingly accept debit cards and you should not provide a debit card as a form of payment. You are responsible for keeping your Credit Card information (including your name, address, card or account number, CVV number and expiration date, as applicable) on file with Twitter current, and you also authorize Twitter to update your Credit Card information with data Twitter obtains from your financial institution, the issuer of your Credit Card, or from MasterCard, American Express, or Visa. You authorize Twitter (i) to retain your Credit Card information for as long as is necessary to meet all of your payment obligations to Twitter or until such time as you revoke this authorization in accordance with procedures Twitter provides, whichever is later, and (ii) to share your Credit Card and related billing and payment information with companies who work on our behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, for the purposes of checking credit, effecting payment and servicing your account. Any revocation by you of this authorization will become effective when all charges and fees associated with your use of the Services and Content have been fully satisfied, in our sole discretion. Your revocation of this authorization will have no effect on your liability for incurred charges and fees through your access to the Services and Data. You must cancel your Services and Content prior to your renewal date in order to not incur fees and charges for the following billing cycle. If You upgrade or increase your Content access prior the end of Your billing cycle, Twitter shall apply a prorated credit (if necessary based on Your current access) to Your increased pro-rated fees for the remainder of the billing cycle and Your full fees for the upgraded access shall be applied at the start of the next cycle. You shall owe all fees for the remainder of Your billing cycle if Twitter terminates Your access due to breach or suspends your access under the Developer Agreement. All payments are non-refundable and Twitter’s property. Charges and fees do not include any applicable sales, use, value-added, withholding, excise, or any other taxes or government charges, which are payable by you and are in addition to any amounts due to Twitter hereunder. If withholding taxes are imposed by any jurisdiction on the transactions described in the Agreement, you will pay such taxes so that Twitter receives the full amount invoiced, without offset or deduction, and you will promptly provide to Twitter the applicable certificates and receipts regarding such remittances. None of your pre-printed forms, purchase orders and/or clickthrough or shrinkwrap terms, whether or not signed by or accepted by Twitter, will apply, and all such terms shall automatically be null and void.
