Aasaan also offers subscription-based plans, pursuant to which certain additional Services not available otherwise to the Users of the Standard Plan (individually, a “Unlimited Plan”) are made available. The terms and conditions of a Premium Plan may be revised from time to time at the sole discretion of Aasaan, with prior written notification to the Users of such Premium Plan.

You understand and agree that you will not be entitled to receive a refund for the Fees you have already paid for your current subscription for any non-usage of the same or for any other reason and you will continue to receive the Services ordered, as part of the relevant subscription plan, until the end of your current subscription period.
You, as a User, may upgrade from the Standard Plan or request for downgrades from time to time by notifying Aaasan, in the manner indicated by Aasaan. You understand and acknowledge that this change may affect your existing subscriptions and the Fee charged in relation to such existing subscriptions, as may be deemed fit by Aasaan. Further, in the event you are using a particular Premium Plan or a custom plan at a discounted rate (offered by Aasaan or any other third party) and upon expiry of the subscription plan, you understand that any renewal of your subscription to the same Premium Plan or custom plan will have to be at the full applicable Fee of the Premium Plan and not the discounted rate. Upon expiration of any subscription availed by you, Aasaan shall notify you of the same in a manner deemed fit by it, post which you shall be required to place a renewal request for such subscription, failing which the subscription shall not be made available to you.
Apart from the plans indicated above, Aasaan may make available such other plans as may be deemed fit by it from time to time.
To the extent permitted by law (and unless specified otherwise by Aasaan in writing), all Fees are exclusive of all taxes (including value-added tax, sales tax, goods and services tax, etc.), levies or duties imposed by taxing authorities (“Taxes”). You shall be responsible for paying all applicable taxes relating to your use of our Services or any payments or purchases made by you. If Aasaan is obligated to collect or pay Taxes for the Fees payable by you, and whether or not such Taxes were added and collected from you for previous transactions, such Taxes may be added to the payment of any outstanding Fees. Aasaan is not responsible for any such additional fees or costs and/or any fees charged by Vendors directly to you.
Aasaan permits payment via various modes, including virtual payment wallets and online payments through debit/credit cards and internet banking or any other method adopted by Aasaan from time to time.
When you purchase a subscription plan (“Transaction”), Aasaan may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, such as your debit or credit card number, the expiration date of your debit or credit card and our address(es) for billing and delivery (“Payment Information”). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information the Payment Information you supply to us is accurate, correct and complete.

Your order is not binding on Aasaan until accepted and confirmed by Aasaan and Aasaan reserves the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected. All payments made are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms.
If at any time, we record a decline, chargeback, or other rejection of a charge of any payable Fees on your Aasaan account (“Chargeback”), this will be considered as a breach of your payment obligations hereunder and your use of the Services may be automatically disabled or terminated.
