Continued use of the Service after any such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes. You can review the most current version of the Terms of Service at any time at: http://www.opensolr.com/terms-and-conditions.
Violation of any of the terms below will result in the termination of your Account.

You must be 13 years or older to use this Service.
You must be a human. Accounts registered by "bots" or other automated methods are not permitted.
You must provide a valid email address and any other information requested in order to complete the signup process.
Your login may only be used by a single organization, person or entity -- a single login shared by entities (all referred to here out as "Customers") not under a singular use is non-permitted.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, api key, and password. opensolr cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with this security obligation.
You are responsible for all Content posted and activity that occurs under your account.
You may not use the Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose. You must not, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws).
You will be solely responsible with your own solr implementation. Abusive use of the Service, or our support service for solr related issues, outside of the opensolr cloud scope, may lead to your account termination and account banishment.
Payment, Refunds, and Upgrading Terms
No credit card is required for signup, as a free user. All payments are made via 2checkout.com, our authorised payment processor
Upon signing up, or the conclusion of your free trial, if applicable, you may be billed for the upcoming month of service at the displayed rate.
You may upgrade or downgrade, or cancel your account at any time, and you will be automatically billed the new rate on a pro-rated basis.
Because Opensolr provides a free trial account, the Service is non-refundable on subscription cancelation.
There will be no refunds or credits for months unused with an open account in case of cancelation. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
In the event that Internet service providers or 3rd party applications experience downtime or otherwise create interruptions, no refunds or partial credits will be issued.
All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes.
Canceling your Service or delinquency in payment may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. Opensolr does not accept any liability for such loss.
All free collections, configurations, and data may be removed, at any time, with, or without, prior notice.
When upgrading or downgranding your account, as opposed to terminating your account, the unused days of your previous membership are elgible for a refund. (Again: ONLY for upgrading or downgrading, NOT for account cancellation or termination)
A FULL refund is applicable to paid accounts that are at most of 14 days old, ONLY upon verification of eligibility, in order to avoid abuse.
Any abuse on the 14-day money back guarantee, other billing features, and fraudulent orders, will be handed over, and pursued by the local and international authorities, and punished accordingly.
Cancellation and Termination
If you want the permanent cancellation and termination of your account, please send such a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
or, you may cancel your account inside your opensolr control panel at: https://opensolr.com/admin/solr_manager
All of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once your account is cancelled.
If you cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up plan, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again, and, because Opensolr provides a free trial membership prior to any purchase, no refunds are applicable.
