I understand that this authorisation will remain in effect until I cancel it in writing, and I agree to notify Gordon Executive Centre in writing of any changes in my account information. Gordon Executive Centre requires a one to six months notice to cancel a virtual service, depending on the plan, if the initial term is not complete or, up to one year to cancel an office agreement.
