Terms of Service

Thank you for registering to use Panedia's services. We want you to derive as much value as possible from the use of our content & systems, and seek not to arbitrarily limit your usage.

By creating a map and/or registering to use our Embedded Content System (the "SERVICE"), you ("YOU") accept and agree to be bound by the Panedia Embedded Content Terms of Service ("TOS").

b) Yearly by invoice.

Monthly fees are not refundable, though YOU may elect to stop paying for & using the service at any time. YOU must cancel your account or contact Panedia to stop automatic monthly payments. Removing the SERVICE from your website will not stop automated payments as we won't know that has been done. Yearly fees are not refundable except in the event that Panedia can no longer provide the SERVICE in which case you will be provided a pro-rata refund on the unused full months of the yearly payment.
