Failure to do so will be considered a late payment per Section 11(a) and will be subject to interest fees, as described herein.

(e) Suspension. If you choose to suspend or “hold” any Subscription instead of termination of any Subscription, you understand and agree that you will be responsible for monthly payment in an amount equal to Pathfinder’s then-current Subscription fee for the lowest pricing tier. Additionally, the period during suspension will not be considered when calculating the remaining time in the term of the Services.
