Copying, editing a previously created report is detected by the application and is always considered as a consumed report credit as a result of which the Customer ceases to have rights to that report credit.
The Smartcheckups application normally sends automatic invoices to the subscribed Customer, according to the tariff plan chosen by the Customer. Random samples can be taken manually to check the automatic billing system. If no automatic invoice is sent to the subscribed customer, due to a possible incorrectly entered or modified e-mail address, Smartcheckups still reserves the right to manually send the invoice that is still due. This period of control is set at 10 years of the invoice date after the report or site description made by you has been created. You hereby explicitly agree that Smartcheckups can return between her B2B and B2C customers up to 10 years in order to claim and collect the outstanding invoice, counting from the creation of your reports or place descriptions.
