5. Payment Plans
5.1. Under all payment plans, three free Digiprove credits are allocated at sign-up, in addition to those that
are covered under the subscription.
5.2. The "Basic" plan (formerly known as the "Free" plan, or "Pay-as-you-go" plan) does not
require a regular subscription fee. At sign-on, it is enabled for one month and includes the above-mentioned three
free credits. Additional credits may be purchased in any quantity at any time at standard price; the purchase of
any additional credits causes a renewal of the Basic membership period for one month from purchase date.
Note that this is the default plan for users who register via the "Copyright Proof" plugin for Wordpress. Usage
of the Service via this plugin currently does not consume Digiprove Credits.
5.3. For paid regular subscriptions, there is a monthly or annual fee which covers the allotment of Digiprove Credits on a
regular basis, and allows continuing access to the Digiprove services. Additional credits are available to purchase at
discounted prices. The level of discount and the minimum purchase quantities vary across the price plans.
5.4. If your subscription plan expires you will not be able to use the Digiprove services until you renew it (in the case
of paid subscriptions) or purchase one or more credits (in the case of a Basic account). Digiprove credits do not
expire and are carried forward from one subscription period to the next.

Validator function (to check the validity of a Digiprove certificate and the related content file) is available at

other payment details. A statement of all payments made is available online in the members' area
You will be reminded by email when monthly or annual fees are due. If you choose not to renew your right

permitted by law. However the Digiprove certificates you have already in your possession continue
to be completely valid and are not dependent on your continued payment. Furthermore we keep a record
of all certificates ever issued and identical copies of such certificates can be supplied to former subscribers on
sufficient proof of identity and payment of an administrative fee.
