In this case, your access to the Service will be ensured only during the current subscription period (“subscription period” or “Term”).
Choriotis reserves the right to require payment of fees for using the Service. Choriotis may offer a trial period free of charge. At the end of the trial period, and according to the subscription plan you have chosen, Choriotis will issue an electronic invoice covering the fees of the next subscription period.

to account for local French VAT. You will receive a VAT-inclusive invoice.
- Customers in other European Union countries If you have registered for an Individual Account, Choriotis will collect VAT charges for sales of digital service with the VAT amount applicable in your country. You will receive a VAT-inclusive invoice. On the other hand, if you have a Professional Account (a B2B operation), VAT reverse charge is applicable. That is, Choriotis will not collect any sales taxes. Consequently, it is up to you to account for VAT related to the intra-EU purchase and declare it to your local tax authority.

- Customers in the rest of the world Under the applicable tax legislation, the Service may be subject to local VAT, GST or any other Sales Tax. Your relationship with Choriotis is considered as a B2B (business-to-business) relationship even when you select a Individual Account type in the registration form. Since not all countries require to collect taxes on foreign purchases, Choriotis allows you to select either type of accounts only as a means to better serve you keeping your data accurate. Thereby, Choriotis will not collect any sales taxes outside the European Union and the user is responsible for any taxes. If you are a sole proprietor, you may be subject to sales tax even if you are not liable for it. To operate your business, including but not limited to a sole proprietorship, you must check with your tax authority whether you are liable for sales taxes and whether you are required or not to apply a reverse charge to account for any Taxes. Any amounts of an applicable local tax are considered to be as withheld by you and are to be remitted to the applicable local tax entity even if they do not appear in the invoices you receive from us. Depending on your country, state and tax legislation, foreign purchases may be subject to declarations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Choriotis will not pay any taxes you owe, and you hereby agree that you will be liable to pay any interest, penalties or fines arising out of any mis-declaration, late-declaration or non-declaration by you. If required, Choriotis will issue an invoice with the amount of taxes that it receives from your local tax entity and it will send it to you.
Your invoices will be delivered to you by using electronic means. You are required to pay any invoice upon receipt. Note that late payments can lead to penalties and extra interests fees legally due by Choriotis. You may pay and view your billing information from your client portal. Accessing the client portal is conditioned by accepting the invitation to the portal, received by email, during the creation of your user account. In any case, and if you have provided a payment method related to your subscription, Choriotis saves you time by automatically collecting the amount of the invoice(s) received through the payment method(s) provided. If this direct debit fails, we will make a maximum of three (3) attempts to collect the amounts due. In case of non-payment, access to the service will be blocked for a few days. After this time, and if the payment is still not received, your subscription will be canceled.
If access to your account is blocked due to non-payment, reactivation of the Service (after payment is received) may take up to forty-eight (48) hours. This period is non-negotiable and the non-access to the Service during this time of restriction will not be refunded. In addition, if your subscription is canceled, and during the period that Choriotis keeps your User Account and Content, you can once again access the Service by creating a new subscription.
In case of invoicing error on our part, if the billed amount is
- greater than the amount due for the use of the Service: Choriotis establishes a credit note with the amount you are entitled to claim. This credit note will be deducted from the sums due for the next invoice.
- less than the amount due for the use of the Service: Choriotis reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to issue an additional invoice with the remaining amount due, or to include such amount in your next invoice on the usual billing date.
