Fees may be based on one-time or renewing payments as more fully described in the Service. If you choose to sign up for a monthly or other timely based membership you understand and authorize that your account will automatically renew until cancelled, and give permission for such billing transactions to take place.

By providing payment information to us, you represent that the payment information is valid.
Both our mobile and online subscription plans are billed as one payment for the term. This means, for example, that if you purchase a monthly plan, you will be charged for the full month’s payment each month; if you purchase a yearly plan or monthly plan, you will be charged for the entire year or monthly term at one time. The pricing terms applicable to your account may vary depending on promotions, type of subscription and the term you select at the time of purchase.

This may vary depending on promotions, type of subscription and the term you select at the time of purchase. At the end of the free trial period your subscription for such paid-for parts of our Service(s) will continue as a paid-for subscription billed on a recurring basis until you cancel your paid-for subscription (turn off automatic renewal in your user preferences in the Service). If you cancel your paid-for subscription, then your subscription will continue only for those parts of our Service(s) that you may access for free.

All subscriptions renew automatically using the payment details you have provided for your account, and as such payment details are updated from time to time. When you purchase a subscription with automatic renewal, you acknowledge and agree that we are authorized to use the payment information for the renewal fee. If you signed up with a promotion, your renewal rate may be higher than your initial rate. Auto-renewal of the subscriptions made on our site can be cancelled at any time before the renewal date from your profile or account settings or by contacting our support. Cancelling auto-renewal of the subscriptions made on our mobile apps is bound to the terms and conditions and applicable payment policy the store operator (e.g. Apple Inc.) has set for the purchasing account.
Our prices may change in the future. If the pricing for your subscription does change, we will notify you, and provide you an opportunity to review those changes to your subscription.
