    • After you stop using an ECM instance, terminate it as soon as possible to avoid incurring fees.
    • After an ECM instance is terminated or repossessed, the data will be cleared and cannot be recovered.
    • Since your actual resource consumption changes constantly, some slight discrepancies may exist for your stated balance.

    Overdue Payment Policy

    From the time when your account balance becomes negative, ECM can still be used normally and fees will still be deducted for 24 hours. After 24 hours, the instance will be automatically shut down, but fees will still be incurred until the instance is terminated.
    After automatic shutdown, the system will process ECM as follows:

    Time Since ShutdownDescription
    ≥ 24 hours and < 7 days
    • If your account is topped up to a positive balance, you can start the instance.
    • If your account balance remains negative, the instance cannot be started.
    ≥ 7 daysIf your account is not topped up to a positive balance, your pay-as-you-go resources will be repossessed and released. All data will be deleted and cannot be recovered. When your resources are repossessed, your Tencent Cloud account creator and all collaborators will be notified by email and SMS.
