Minimum commitments in Service Orders are (a) based on Services purchased and not actual usage; (b) non-cancelable; and (c) cannot be decreased during the specified term. Fees paid for minimum commitments and actual usage are not refundable. Subscriber’s payments of fees are neither (x) contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features nor (y) dependent on statements not set forth in the Agreement.
7.2 Invoicing Terms. If the Service Order specifies that payment will occur by a method other than a credit card, Subscriber will provide a purchase order number in the applicable amount (or reasonable alternative proof of Subscriber’s ability to pay the fees specified in a Service Order), and promptly notify Fastly of any changes necessary for payment of an invoice. Fastly will invoice Subscriber either monthly or according to the billing frequency stated in the Service Order. Invoices to be paid by credit card are due on the invoice date, all other invoices are due net 30 days from the invoice date. If any invoiced amount is not received by Fastly by the due date, then without limiting Fastly’s rights or remedies: (a) those charges may accrue late interest at the rate of 1.5% of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, (b) Fastly may condition future subscription renewals and Service Orders on shorter payment terms or (c) provide a notice to Subscriber with a notice of non-renewal for all outstanding Service Orders. If Subscriber is paying for Services by credit card, Subscriber will provide Fastly with valid credit card information and promptly notify Fastly of any changes necessary to charge the credit card.

7.5 Refund or Payment upon Termination. If Subscriber terminates the Agreement in accordance with Section 5.2 (Termination for Cause), Fastly will refund any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Service Orders after the effective date of termination. If the Agreement is terminated by Fastly in accordance with Section 5.2 (Termination for Cause), Subscriber will pay any unpaid fees covering the remainder of the term of all Service Orders.
