We will also never charge you a cancellation fee even you chose a yearly subscription. No greed here, just a straightforward approach to doing business.
Any failed payments will suspend your Soundgine plan automatically until it is renewed.
We understand that there are different reasons for failed payment so we keep your account in suspension mode for 30 days. Reactivation is simple, just log into your My Account and reactivate by paying your bill via Paypal or credit card. After 30 days accounts are permanently removed from our system. If you initiate a cancellation, your account will still be active for the remaining days you have paid previously.
There are no refunds if you have used your monthly allotted time.
Refunds & Cancellation Cancel anytime, there are no set contracts or obligation. Refunds are given to new accounts that have been newly created. We allow a full refund within 7 days of service.
