You agree that Niggle It, in its sole discretion, may terminate and/or deactivate your account (or any part thereof) or ability to use of the Website, and remove and discard any data or information that you have provided should Niggle It reasonably determine that you have failed to pay your fees in a timely manner, that you have violated or acted inconsistently with these Terms and Conditions, or for any other breach of your Agreement with Niggle It.

Any excess payments or credits shall be forfeit and remain with Niggle It upon the occurrence of any such termination.
As a subscriber, you have the ability to cancel your Niggle It subscription at any time. Your cancellation will take effect at the end of your current subscription period providing that you have notified us in writing by e-mailing to: [email protected] at least a minimum of five (5) working days prior to the subscription expiring. You will not receive a refund for subscription period that has already occurred, except in the specific instances described below.

Payment for the appropriate Niggle It services will be made by automatic credit card debit. Subscribers will be automatically renewed for the original term upon expiration, unless Niggle It is notified by e-mailing to: [email protected] a minimum of five (5) working days prior to subscription expiration. As part of our service Niggle It will have provided you with a reminder about the subscription prior to renewal.
Unless and until this agreement is cancelled by e-mail, the subscriber hereby authorizes Niggle It to charge subscriber's credit card to pay for the renewal and ongoing subscription costs.
In the event that the credit card details we are holding are no longer valid and are rejected at renewal time we will request that you promptly provide us with your new details. As a part of our service we will remind you of an expiring card to allow you time to update the subscription with the new card details. We will keep your current Niggle It login and all associated data for a maximum period of 21 days following the expiration of your subscription. If you experience any difficulties with the renewal process please notify us by e-mailing to: [email protected]. In the event that we do not have new credit card details or any communication from you 21 days following the expiration of your subscription we will terminate the service.
13. Upgrade Service
In the event that you subscribed to one or our services and wish to upgrade your service during the subscription period we offer an upgrade service. The two following examples further explain the offer.
If you have subscribed to Niggle It for a service and wish to upgrade your service to the next level, i.e. subscribed to Single and now require Household, Niggle It requires you to sign up for a minimum of one year of the new service and will credit the prorated amount remaining on the original service subscribed against the new subscription.
In the situation where a customer has subscribed for Single and wants to move to Household after say 6 months:
Originally paid 1 year Single $24.95
New service 1 year Household (A) $29.95
Credit for unused portion (B) ($12.50)
Transaction fee (C) $4.00
Amount to pay A-B+C $21.45
If you have subscribed to a service from Niggle It on a multi-year subscription and wish to upgrade your service to the next level, i.e. subscribed to Single and now require Household, Niggle It requires you to upgrade only for the remaining period originally contracted, i.e. 3 years originally subscribed, and Niggle It will credit the prorated amount remaining on the original service subscribed against the new subscription.
In the situation where a customer has subscribed for Single for three (3) years and wants to move to Household after say 1 year of a 3 year subscription:
Originally paid 3 year Single $59.95
Credit for unused portion (used 1 year) (B) ($39.95)
New service 2 year household (A) $54.95
Transaction fee (C) $4.00
Amount to pay A-B+C $19.00
We do not offer a downgrade service. That is a reduction in the duration or service subscribed too.
