This authorization will remain in full force and effect until you change your settings in your Profile to change your contracted developers, otherwise notify us that you wish to revoke your authorization by contacting Customer Support, or cancel your Account.

You can add or remove contracted developers at any time. You will receive a credit for any of the contracted developer fees for a given month if you downgrade your number of contracted developers after a billing cycle has started, including by switching to having no contracted developers, before the end of a billing period. However, if you switch to having no contracted developers, you will still have the ability to work with your contracted developer until the end of the billing period.
