Your subscription period commences on the first day you access the Service with a paying account.
  2.  If you exceed the subscribed usage plan You will be charged for such excessive usage in accordance with WSO2’s records of your usage data and WSO2 will invoice you accordingly on the next billing cycle. You will not receive prior notification of your excessive usage or of the proportionate increase that will be reflected in your next invoice.
