To use the Privacy4 service you must have Internet access and a valid email address, and sign up to our chosen Payment Method. “Payment Method” means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time, and which may include payment through your account with a third party.

Some membership plans may have differing conditions and limitations, which will be disclosed at your sign-up or in other communications made available to you.

  1. Discounted Memberships

  1. Billing and Cancellation 

4.1. Billing Cycle. The membership fee for the Privacy4 service will normally be charged to your Payment Method on the 1st of each calendar month. In some cases, your payment date may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month.

4.2. Payment Methods. To use the Privacy4 service you must use our current chosen Payment Methods. You authorise us to charge the Payment Method associated to your account.
