The Service or some parts of the Service may be available only on a paid subscription basis by the Company to You (“Subscription”). For such paid Subscription, You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (such as daily, weekly, monthly or annually), depending on the type of Subscription plan You select when purchasing the Subscription.
At the end of each period, Your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless You or the Company cancels it. You may cancel Your Subscription renewal either through Your Account (defined below) settings page or by contacting the Company.

You shall provide the Company with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information.

Unless You notify Us of any discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on Your payment statement, they will be deemed accepted by You and You release Us from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any such error or discrepancy.
The Company, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify any Subscription fees. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Subscription period. In such an event, the Company will provide You with reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees to give You an opportunity to terminate Your Subscription before such change becomes effective. Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes Your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
Except when required by law, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable. Certain refund requests for Subscriptions may be considered by the Company on a case-by-case basis and granted at the sole discretion of the Company.
