Unless otherwise stated on the Service Order Form, Youmanage will invoice you for the first period’s Service Fees on the Service Commencement Date and then will automatically renew and issue invoices to you a) on each subsequent Quarterly Anniversary of the Service Commencement Date for quarterly-paid Service Fees, or b) on each yearly anniversary of the Service Commencement Date for annually-paid Service Fees. The charge will be equal to the Service Fee as specified on the Service Order Form, unless Youmanage at least 45 days prior to the renewal of the term has given written notice of a fee increase, which shall be effective upon renewal and thereafter. Youmanage may increase the charge for periods subsequent to the first anniversary of the Service Commencement Date by giving not less than 45 days prior written notice but any increase shall not exceed the percentage increase in the Retail Price Index published by the Office for National Statistics for the preceding 12 months (or any replacement or successor index).
