Cancellations cannot be retroactive and are only effective once Serious Social Media has confirmed with you your intent to cancel. Subscriptions to Serious Social Media are billed in advance on a monthly basis and are non-refundable; therefore Serious Social Media does not provide pro-rated refunds based on the timing of your cancellation.

Any and all payments by or on account of the compensation payable under this Agreement shall be made free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for any Taxes. If you are required to deduct or withhold any Taxes from such payments, then the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that, after making all required deductions or withholdings, Serious Social Media receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
