Pay-As-You-Go

This offer is billed at the standard Pay-As-You-Go rates, except as otherwise specified herein.

You will be notified at least 30 days in advance of any changes to the Pay-As-You-Go rates. New services may be added periodically to the Azure platform. We will notify you in advance of these new services and any fees that might be charged for using them. However, you would only be charged if you elect to use the new services.

Any taxes which may result from receiving services at no charge are the sole responsibility of the recipient.

Upgrading from Azure Free Account

If you upgraded from an Azure Free Account offer you will continue to have access to select free services for the remainder of the 12-month duration of that offer (beginning on the date you signed up for the Azure Free Account). Credits provided as part of the Azure Free Account will be automatically carried over but will expire 30 days from the date you signed up for the Azure Free Account. At the end of the 12-month period, your account will be billed at the standard Pay-As-You-Go rates. Microsoft reserves the right to change or discontinue any of the select free services or Azure Free Account offer at any time with or without notice.

Communication Policy for Azure Free Account

Throughout the 12-month duration of your Azure Free Account, you may receive periodic email communications with best practices, training, tips and tricks, and valuable offers related to Azure. You can stop receiving communications by opting out via the unsubscribe link in the emails. Privacy Statement.

Limits, Quotas and Constraints

Please refer to the Limits, Quotas and Constraints document for a list of common Microsoft Azure limits, quotas and constraints. If you need to exceed these limits, please contact customer service at any time so that we can understand your needs and adjust your limits appropriately.

Service Level Agreements

We offer a set of robust service level agreements for each of the Azure platform services. More details on each of our SLAs can be found on our SLA page. SLAs are not provided for services during preview or for services that are offered free of charge.

Resource Commitment

All increases in service usage (e.g. adding to the number of compute instances running or increasing the amount of storage in use) are subject to the availability of these service resources. Any quota described in the Limits, Quotas and Constraints section is not a commitment that there will be sufficient resources available for you to reach the quota.

Any Azure Free Account that is not incurring charges or is inactive for more than 90 days, we reserve the right to remove any compute resources including hosted service(s), virtual machines and websites. We will also provide notice prior to removing any compute resources. You can also avoid becoming inactive by doing either of the following every 90 days:

  1. Log into either the Azure portal or the new Microsoft Azure portal
  2. Access your resources via our Azure APIs

Microsoft reserves the right to modify or discontinue any of the free services or Free Account at any time with or without notice.
