11           Refunds will be made via your original method of payment and will usually be processed within [7] working days.

12           Please note that you will no longer have the right to cancel your upgraded subscription after your contract for upgraded subscription has been fully performed which in the case of a contract for a 7 day subscription period will be after the expiry of the 7 day period.
