Cloud Subscription Renewals
If you plan to extend your commercial Cloud subscription, you should do so before the end of your current billing cycle which is usually 1, 3, 6, 12, or 24 months. After your current subscription plan ends, you have a grace period of 15 days to work without limitation. If you do not renew your subscription, then your Bitrix24 account will be rolled back to the Free subscription plan, with a 5 GB online storage limit and functionality corresponding to the Free plan.
If your account has been rolled back to the Free subscription plan, and the amount of data in your Bitrix24 instance exceeds 5 GB, your data will be accessible only for reading and deleting. You will not be able to upload new files, create new tasks, add data into the CRM, or perform other actions unless the data is below the 5 GB storage limit.
The Free subscription plan allows you to provide access to the Business Tools (https://helpdesk.bitrix24.com/open/1945065/) for up to 12 intranet users.
If no user logs in to your Cloud account with the Free subscription option, your Bitrix24 instance will be 'archived', and after another 15 days - deleted. After your account is deleted, no data can be restored.
