Once your Credits are consumed, all additional use of the Services will be billed at Our standard rates. Credits expire six months from the date they are added to your LightOn Cloud account.

No refunds will be granted for any expired or cancelled Credits and Credits are nonrefundable.
1.3 Your Credits are personal to You. You may not sell, license, rent, or otherwise transfer Credits. Your Credits may not be applied to any other account. Credits are void if you attempt to sell, license, rent or otherwise transfer them.
