The subscription fees payable for paid versions of Carta are listed on our website. Fees are considered incurred on the first day of each subscription period.
Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the applicable subscription period, unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period.

If you wish to dispute any charges, you must give us written notice at firstname.lastname@example.org within 10 days of the charge being applied to your credit card, failing which the charges will be deemed to be accurate.
