5.1 YOUR OBLIGATIONS
5.1.1 Payment obligations:
An invoice for the Access Fee will be issued once you request an account for the period you subscribed for and another invoice issued towards the end of each period. All invoices will include the Access Fee for the period to be covered in advance.

All Clever invoices will be sent to You, or to a Billing Contact whose details are provided by You, by email. You must pay or arrange payment of all amounts specified in any invoice by the due date for payment and are payable within 10 days of the invoice date. You are responsible for payment of all taxes and duties in addition to the Access Fee.
5.1.2 Preferential pricing or discounts:
You may from time to time be offered preferential pricing or discounts for the Access Fees as a result of the number of organizations that You have added to the Service or that have been added with Your authority or as a result of Your use of the Service (‘Organizations’). Eligibility for such preferential pricing or discounts is conditional upon Your acceptance of responsibility for payment of any Access Fees in relation to all of Your Organizations. Without prejudice to any other rights that Clever may have under these Terms or at law, Clever reserves the right to render invoices for the full (non-discounted) Access Fees due or suspend or terminate Your use of the Service in respect of any or all of Your Organizations in the event that any invoices for those Access Fees are not paid in full by the due date for payment.

Where available, automated bank account transaction data feeds are generally provided to You free of charge.

Clever would first inform You via email to indicate what those charges are likely to be (as such charges may vary depending on Your bank and Your volume of bank feeds). You may opt to discontinue use of automated bank feeds at any time by giving Clever sufficient prior notice of which automated bank account transaction data feeds you want to discontinue. Upon receiving such notice Clever will arrange for such feeds to be terminated in accordance with each bank’s usual practices. For the avoidance of doubt, ‘sufficient notice period’ will depend on Bank’s standard procedures including any relevant notice period, this Bank being Clever’s bank of choice for its services.
