Customer may allow its Affiliates to purchase the Service under the terms of this ToU only if Customer informs SoloStar in writing of the specific Affiliate authorized to make a purchase ("Authorized Affiliate").

Customer’s purchases are non-cancelable and payment for the Service is non-refundable, except as otherwise stated in this ToU. Customer will maintain complete and accurate billing and contact information with SoloStar.
