Administrators will generally be billed periodically (as applicable), in advance, for all Fees, however, the first bill may include pro-rated charges from the Effective Date. Administrators must provide FMYI with valid credit card and/or other information required during the registration process and FMYI will, in its sole discretion (unless otherwise agreed upon by such Administrator and FMYI in writing) either (i) invoice Administrators for such period or (ii) charge Administrators' credit card for all Fees accordingly.

If payment from your Network Administrator is not received by FMYI for any reason, including chargeback, FMYI reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your access to such Network and account, thereby terminating this Agreement and all obligations of FMYI hereunder. If an Administrator has a balance due on its FMYI account, such Administrator agrees that FMYI can charge these unpaid Fees to such Administrators' credit card. In cases where Administrators fail payment under this Agreement, Administrators shall bear default interest after the due date at the rate of 18% per year or the highest amount permitted by applicable law (whichever is less), which shall be calculated on a per diem basis of a year of 365 days.
