CLIMOD Usage Policy

The NRCC CLIMOD system is available to registered users on a subscription basis. Users must contact NRCC to establish an account. Registered users must maintain a positive account balance against which system usage charges are deducted.

Initial deposit

A $25 minimum deposit is required to establish a CLIMOD account. This deposit is put "on account" against which subsequent charges will be applied. If a user wishes to terminate their account at any time, any unused balance of $5 or more will be refunded.

Product charges

CLIMOD is a debit system where appropriate product charges are deducted from the user's account everytime a product is generated. Access charges vary by product and can be found in each product's "Details" file.

Account balances

The user's account balance is displayed in the upper-right corner of the CLIMOD screen. Users should monitor their balance and contact NRCC when they need to add funds to their account. Products will not be displayed once the balance drops to $0.
