If you are a premier group owner you will be required to contact Convene Communities, LLC at firstname.lastname@example.org to discontinue your premier group.
Customers- all sales are final until the end of the members payment agreement. There are no refunds. For example, if you cancel a monthly membership you will maintain access to the group until the end of that month. The membership will end at the beginning of the next pay period. Annual memberships will last until the following year. If the customer pays for a single payment group membership there will be no refunds- all sales are final.

3. All annual, monthly, or single payment plans will continue and renew automatically as Convene Communities, LLC may specify, unless properly cancelled. Customer owning and operating a premier groups or private groups must receive permission through Convene Communities, LLC prior to cancelling these groups. The reason for this is the implications of paying customers within the application to your paying groups. Contact Convene Communities, LLC at email@example.com. Because of the dynamic nature of the application you will be responsible through the end of your payment agreement.
Customer on a monthly subscription must manually process the cancellation of Customer’s account from within Customer’s account by going into the Billing section of the account settings and completely following the instructions to cancel or the customer can go to the premier membership group and click leave group.

5. Any change (including any upgrade, downgrade or other modification) to any plan by Customer in a trial period will end the trial immediately. Customer will be billed for its first term period (i.e. the first annual or monthly period) immediately upon upgrading. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level after any trial period, Customer’s credit, debit or other payment card will automatically be charged the new rate on Customer’s next billing cycle. Customer will be billed immediately for the prorated difference for the current billing cycle for any upgrade to any higher priced plan during that billing cycle.
