Company requires payment of fees for certain features of the Service, including without limitation, a subscription fee for access to the Service. Should you elect to subscribe to such features ("Subscriptions"), you shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Sites in connection with such features. Company reserves the right to change its price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon ten (10) days prior notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Site. Use of the Service by you following such notification constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.

You shall pay for such Subscriptions with a payment method accepted by Company ("Payment Method") that you provided during registration. If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up for during registration, or if there is a change in the required information you supply for your Payment Method (e.g. billing address, expiration date), you may edit your Payment Method information by clicking by updating your Company Settings. If your Payment Method expires or changes and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

As used in these Terms of Use, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The fee for Subscriptions will be billed at the beginning of your Subscription term or expiration of your free trial period, if any, whichever is earlier, and annually / at the beginning of each renewal term thereafter unless and until you cancel your Subscription or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. To see the commencement date for your next renewal period, go to the billing information section on Company Settings page.

You acknowledge that the amount billed on each invoice may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your Subscription plan, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts.

However, we will not be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes.

All fees and charges are nonrefundable except in connection with your early cancellation of the account as further described below. Very rarely, if there are special circumstances where Company determines it is appropriate (e.g., the Subscription is unavailable for days due to technical difficulties), we may provide credits to affected subscribers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at Company's sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle anyone to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances.
