In situations where the card number on file is declined Uniq Media will immediately suspend the facility to purchase services on-line until the outstanding charge is processed successfully. In addition, Uniq Media reserves the right to suspend other services until the outstanding debt is cleared. The customer is responsible for all money owed on the account from the time it was established to the time that the customer sends a written cancellation request.
