6.Purchases of Subscription Services
6.1.General. Subject to payment by you of the relevant fees and charges, you may purchase from us such subscription services as are made available by us from time-to-time. Subscription services shall entitle you to such data access and such services as are described on our websites aihitdata.com and aiHit.com, subject to payment by you of the relevant monthly subscription fee.
6.2.Trial Period. Where a free trial is offered for a subscription service, you may terminate the service any time prior to the end of the trial period and you will not be charged a fee. Where a free trial is offered, if you do not terminate a subscription service prior to the end of the free trial period you will automatically be charged the monthly subscription fee for the service. Trial periods will commence on the day you subscribe and will terminate at midnight UTC on last day of the trial period. For example, if a one month trial period is offered, a trial period commencing at any time on 4th February will terminate at midnight UTC on 3rd March. Unless a free trial period for a subscription service is clearly offered there shall be no free trial period and the relevant fee for the subscription will be payable immediately.
6.3.Payments. Subscription payments are payable monthly in advance and are not refundable. Invoices will be raised and be payable on either i) as soon as you subscribe; or ii) where there is a free trial period, immediately following the expiry of the free trial period. Thereafter (subject to clause 1.4) you will be billed on the same day of each subsequent month until your subscription is terminated.
6.4.Monthly billing periods. If a monthly subscription is scheduled for a date that does not occur in a given month, we'll create the charge on the last day of the month. For example, if a monthly subscription is scheduled for the 31st day of each month, we'll create the charge on the 30th of April, June, September, and November, and the 28th of February (or the 29th, if it exists). The following month, we'll create the charge on the 31st as usual.

If the price for the new subscription service is different you will start paying the new subscription fee at your next monthly billing date.

If the new subscription is more expensive you will not be charged any additional amount for the unexpired portion of the old subscription service.

7.2.Our data is sourced from company websites, statutory bodies such as Companies House in the UK and from users.
7.3.Web sourced data. The majority of our data is created by our search engine which finds and classifies websites and using advanced logic, including artificial intelligence attempts to extract and structure data to create a Profile. This extraction logic is not perfect and is subject to errors and omissions. To the extent that it is an accurate extraction and correct interpretation and classification of the information published on a company’s website, it was only correct at the time our engine last crawled the site and may have changed.
7.4.Data from statutory bodies. Information from statutory registers (e.g. Companies House – the UK government register of companies) is also used to build some but not all of the Profiles. Where possible our engine tries to match Profiles created from statutory registers with Profiles created from the web to create consolidated profiles. This matching logic is not perfect and is subject to errors and omissions. To the extent that data included in a Profile has been sourced from statutory registers, it was correct at the time our engine sourced it, but may have changed subsequently.
