Where a pay as you go Customer adds a new Seat during a given term, the Customer will be required to pay, in advance, a pro rata amount to reflect the portion of the remaining term during which the Authorized User for that Seat will have access to the Service, provided that Scratchpad may bill Customer more frequently for fees accrued if Scratchpad believes there is a risk of non-payment or that Customer’s account may be fraudulent.
