EFT payments must be received on or before the 1st business day of each month.
Non-Payment. ITT CONNECT shall be entitled to immediately terminate services in the event of Client’s failure to remit payment to ITT CONNECT on time. In the event of a debit order being returned by Client's bank, ITT CONNECT shall charge Client's account for any banking fees incurred.

Refund Policy. Certain services carry a set-up fee charged by ITT CONNECT to Client that must be paid by Client in order to make use of the services; these fees are not refundable whatsoever. If Client terminates this agreement in accordance with Section 4 hereunder, Client shall be responsible for any outstanding fees owed to ITT CONNECT and agrees to pay any and all fees incurred by Client. Because the services are provided on a monthly basis, Client will be responsible for service fees incurred each month regardless of when Client provides notice of termination. Thus, for example, if Client provides notice to terminate service on the 15th day of a particular billing cycle, Client will still owe fees for the entire month and such fees will not be pro-rated or refunded. If Client has pre-paid ITT CONNECT for such services, refunds will be issued for any unused full month portions of the services upon Clients request of cancellation.
