3. Forms and Submissions
You accept and have sole responsibility for the forms, tables, submission pages, and other content that you create or that is generated as you use the Platform. When you make such content “public”, or set your account settings to allow the content to become public, or you don’t change a default setting that would allow a form, a table or other content that is generated as you use the Platform to be made public, you acknowledge and agree that the content will in fact be available to the public on our websites. By allowing such content to become public, you grant Jotform a worldwide and fully sublicensable license to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform, and publicly display such content on our websites. Of course, you may choose to apply settings to your account to make or keep forms private.

5. Payments, Renewals, etc
A. Payments. We charge sales taxes on subscriptions where we are required to do so under applicable law. No other taxes will be charged. You are responsible for payment of any and all taxes, levies, and duties, including any sale or value-added taxes and similar taxes and duties, that may be imposed on you by any governing authority in any jurisdiction in connection with your subscription.
If you use a credit card to pay for your Jotform subscription, you represent and warrant that the credit card information you provide is correct and that you will promptly notify us of any changes to such credit card information. You agree that if your credit card payment cannot be processed for any reason, Jotform may suspend or cancel your Jotform subscription.
B. Automatic Renewal. For subscriptions, you will be billed in advance on a recurring, periodic basis. Your Jotform subscription will automatically renew at the end of each billing cycle until you cancel your subscription or you downgrade to a free/Starter plan – see this page and the Billing section in your Account Settings. You may also send us a request to downgrade to the Starter plan here. Turning off auto-renew prevents your payment method from being charged at your next billing date, or if you pay by invoice, prevents your next invoice from being issued.
C. Upgrades/Downgrades. Upgrading your plan, such as going from a free Starter plan to a Bronze plan, or from Bronze to Silver or Silver to Gold, will add or increase things like the included/allowed number of included forms, submissions, available space, storage, etc. Downgrading your plan will, as of your next billing date, result in a decrease of some or all of those elements and may cause you to lose forms and submissions. You can delete your account entirely by clicking “Delete My Account” on your Account Settings page.
D. 30 Day Money Back Policy. If for any reason you decide to cancel your account within 30 days of your payment, you will be issued a refund for the full amount. If you purchased your Jotform subscription through the Jotform website or Google Play, please submit a refund request to the Jotform Support Team.
Subscriptions purchased via the Apple App Store are subject to the Apple App Store refund policies – Jotform cannot refund payment(s) you made to Apple. To request a refund, please review Apple’s refund process: https://support.apple.com/HT204084.
