from the database after the billing cycle of that
month/quarter, no refund shall be supplied, however they
may choose to keep their listing until the end of that
For yearly subscriptions, once the customer has requested
to withdraw their invention from the database, Invent
Spark shall process the request and prorate the remaining
months in the form of a refund to the customer's credit
card, minus a $12.95 processing fee.
