Paying customers are defined herein as “Account Holder,” or, collectively, “Account Holders.” The Account Holder may choose from among service plans and billing plans described in the pricing or payment section of the Site or as otherwise offered in writing by AUTOsist. Your account will be renewed automatically at the end of each service period until either you or we cancel the Service.

If Account Holder submits to AUTOsist a recent (30 days or less) invoice or other published proof of price, from any U.S.-based online competitor of AUTOsist offering the same features as AUTOsist’s Services for vehicle fleets of equal or greater size as Account Holder, AUTOsist will match the competitor’s fee for such features. Price match guarantee may be exercised one time only per Account Holder.

If you want to preserve your Content, you must export it before canceling your account. Your Content may not be recoverable once your account is cancelled.
11. Non-payment. If Account Holder fails to pay any Fee or other amounts due under this Agreement, whether by cancelling Account Holder’s credit card, initiating an improper charge back, or any other means, Account Holder’s AUTOsist account may be suspended.
