Subscriptions to Services

  • Subscription Plans: You may access the Services through free or paid subscription plans ("Paid Subscription"). Paid Subscriptions are paid for in advance of the subscription period.

The cancellation will take effect immediately.

  • Change in Subscription Plans: Subscription plans, whether free or paid, may be changed by you at any time.

    • If you upgrade your Paid Subscription, we will prorate the subscription fee for the remaining balance of your existing Paid Subscription and deduct that amount for the new Paid Subscription. You will get charged for the new Paid Subscription at the time of upgrade, and it will reset your subscription period.

    • If you downgrade your Paid Subscription, we will prorate the subscription fee for the remaining balance of your Paid Subscription and issue a credit for that amount to be applied against the cost for the new Paid Subscription until the credit is used in full. You will be charged and credited for the new Paid Subscription at the time of downgrade, and it will reset your subscription period.

  • Refunds: Upon termination of a Paid Subscription, we will not refund any subscription fees that you have already paid to us. No cash refunds will be given for a change in a Paid Subscription.

  • Price: We may change the price for the Paid Subscriptions from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. By continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect, you accept the new price.
