Billdu is not obliged to verify the accuracy of data you have filled in regarding your residence or place of business.

Subscriptions made with a payment gateway are usualy automatically renewed if the payment method allows it. You will be informed of this fact by an e-mail message and have the option to terminate the recurring subscription at any time in your user account. Subscriptions purchased through a third-party system (Google PlayStore or Apple AppStore) are subject to the terms and conditions of use of those services (e. g. renewal or reimbursement of subscriptions).
