Fees and Payments. By using the Services, and selecting any Services that we offer for a fee on a subscription basis, you accept the cost of the Services that you have elected to pay, and you authorize Company and/or its trusted third-party partners to process your payment from the credit or debit card or other payment source you have identified through your account with the Website (“Payment Method”). If you purchase any Services that we offer for a fee, you agree to pay Company, directly or via its designated third-party payment processor, all applicable fees as they become due plus all applicable related taxes. You may cancel your subscription from time to time as provided on the Website. We may refuse to renew any subscription.

Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, if you select a Service subject to a recurring monthly subscription fee for use of the Services (the “Subscription Fee”), notwithstanding any then-applicable payment arrangement, you agree to pay the Subscription Fee and any volume-based or consumption-based charges applicable to the Services that you selected. Such Subscription Fees may vary depending upon the subscription plan that you select. Your billing will be provided by Company or its trusted third-party partners. The Subscription Fee will be billed within thirty (30) days after you establish your Company account and on an ongoing regular annual basis unless you cancel your subscription. Please note that billing cycles may vary. Note that the timing of your billing may change (i.e., in the event of a problem with your Payment Method, such as an expired credit card). You should confirm the applicable billing policies prior to establishing your subscription. Company may change the Subscription Fee and adjust pricing for the Services or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. We will notify you thirty (30) days in advance of any change in Subscription Fees by posting such changes to the Subscription Fee. You accept the new fees by continuing to use the Services after the fee change takes effect. If you do not agree with the applicable price change, you have the right to reject the change by terminating your account through the Website in accordance with these Terms.

You may update your Payment Method with Company at any time by accessing your Account. If at any time Company is unable to charge your Payment Method for the Subscription Fee due to insufficient funds, expired, or invalid account details, or otherwise, you remain responsible for the cost of such Subscription Fee. A change in your Payment Method may result in changes to your prior billing cycle. It is your responsibility to update and maintain the Payment Method associated with your Subscription Fee. In the event your Payment Method is unable to cover the Subscription Fee, Company reserves the right to suspend your access to the Website and Services until such time as the payment method has been updated and the Subscription Fee is duly paid.

Company reserves the right to retry or permit its third-party partners to retry billing your Payment Method after failed attempts (e.g., if Payment Method is rejected). We also reserve the right to pursue or permit our trusted third-party partners to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your subscription. If Company is unable to collect your payment using one of the foregoing methods, Company reserves the right to freeze or cancel your account in its sole discretion. You will remain liable for all such amounts and all costs incurred in connection with the collection of any unpaid amount, including, without limitation, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and litigation and/or arbitration costs.

All information that you provide to register with Company, including, without limitation, your Payment Method, is subject to Company’s Privacy Policy and these Terms. We may use a third-party payment service to charge your Payment Method. By submitting your information relating to Payment Method, you grant Company the right to store and process your information with the third-party payment service, which may change from to time. You agree that Company will not be responsible for any failures of the third party to adequately protect such information. You acknowledge that we may charge (or use a third-party payment service to charge) your Payment Method for any applicable fees associated with your account or other amounts owing to Company in connection with your use or misuse of the Services or Website. Without limiting the foregoing, if any payment or transfer you make from your account is returned unpaid, you authorize Company (or a third-party payment service) to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your Payment Method to collect an amount equal to the fee charged for such return.


Cancellation: YOU CAN CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME. If you cancel your subscription, the cancellation will become effective at the completion of the current billing cycle.
