3. Charges and Fees for Fee-Based Products
Certain portions, components, content and features of this Website are only available to individuals who purchase a subscription to one of our Fee-Based Products. As a subscriber to one of our Fee-Based Products, you agree as follows:
A. You agree to pay, using a valid credit card (or other form of payment which we may accept from time to time), the fixed and periodic charges and fees (including prepayment plan fees for multiple periods) set forth on this Website (such as the fixed Sign Up Fee and the recurring Monthly Fee), applicable taxes, and other charges and fees incurred in order to access our Fee-Based Products. We reserve the right to increase charges and fees, or to institute new charges or fees at any time, upon reasonable advance notice communicated to you through a posting on this Website or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time (including electronic mail or conventional mail). We will automatically charge your credit card or other account at the start of the standard or multiple-period prepayment plan billing period and at the start of each renewal period, unless you terminate or cancel your subscription before the relevant renewal period begins. Except in the case of a multiple-period prepayment plan or if you were eligible for a discounted rate but are no longer eligible for that rate, the renewal charge will be the same as the prior periodâ€™s charge, unless we notify you in advance at the time of sign up or prior to the beginning of the renewal period as described above. Each time you use our Fee-Based Products you reaffirm your agreement that we may charge your credit card (or other form of payment, if applicable). In the event we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right to terminate your access to our Fee-Based Products. If you purchased a multiple- period prepayment plan or you were eligible for a discounted rate but are no long eligible for that rate, your subscription will automatically be renewed at our standard subscription rates and for our standard period (usually monthly) at the start of the renewal period. If you wish to purchase another prepayment plan for multiple periods and we are currently offering prepayment plans at such time, you must notify us prior to the termination of your current prepayment plan.
B. In addition to the fees and charges set forth above, you are responsible for all charges and fees associated with connecting to our Website and our Fee-Based Products, including without limitation all telephone access lines (including long-distance charges, when applicable), internet service provider fees, telephone and computer equipment, sales taxes and any other fees and charges necessary to access our Fee-Based Products.
C. For purposes of your use of our Fee-Based Products including identification and billing, you agree to provide us with true, accurate and complete information as required by the subscription or sign up process to our Fee-Based Products (‘Subscription Data’), including your legal name, address, telephone number, email address and applicable billing information (e.g., credit card number and expiration date), and to allow us to share your Subscription Data with third parties for the purpose of verifying the information you provide and billing your credit card or otherwise charging your account. You agree to maintain and promptly update the Subscription Data and any other information you provide to us to keep it accurate. Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, if you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such is the case, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your user account or subscription and refuse any and all current or future use by you of our Website (or any portion thereof) or any of our Fee-Based Products. You are obligated to check the ‘Account Settings’ feature of our Website to determine whether your Subscription Data is current and accurate, and, if not, to correct or update your Subscription Data including your billing information. You agree not to register or subscribe for more than one account, create an account on behalf of someone else, or create a false or misleading identity on this Website.
If your registration or subscription is revoked for any reason, you agree not to register or subscribe again with our Website using another user name or through any other means. If we have reason to suspect, in our sole discretion, that your account has previously been terminated, we reserve the right to terminate any new accounts you have registered without any notice to you, or to exercise any other remedies available to us under this Subscription Agreement or by law.
D. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and user account information. You must notify us immediately in the event of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your user account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your or anyone elseâ€™s password or credit card information. In the event of a breach of security by you, you will remain liable for any unauthorized use of your subscription until you update your Subscription Data. If your credit card expires, is canceled, is lost or is subject to use without your authorization, access the Account Settings feature of this Website to update your Subscription Data. You are entirely responsible for any and all activities which occur under your user account. You are responsible for paying any amounts billed to your credit card by a third party which were not authorized by you.
E. Except for multiple- period prepayment plans, your failure to satisfy limitations we set based on demographic, geographic, or other similar criteria, or if we terminate your subscription to one of our Fee-Based Products prior to the end of the applicable period, you agree that all fees and charges assessed by us are nonrefundable. Nonrefundable fees include the full Monthly Fee for any month (or portion thereof) elapsed (regardless of whether you logged onto our Website or used the Fee-Based Product during that month). If your cancellation of your subscription to one of our Fee-Based Products is due to your failure to satisfy limitations we set based on demographic, geographic, or other similar criteria prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, with the exception of any fixed upfront fee (such as any Sign Up Fee), we will refund any fees in accordance with the refund policy we have in effect at such time. If we cancel or terminate your subscription to one of our Fee-Based Products (as opposed to you canceling your subscription) prior to the end of a period for which you have incurred a charge, with the exception of any fixed upfront fee (such as the Sign Up Fee), there will be no refunds.
4. Cancellation of Subscription
You can cancel your subscription by contacting Customer Service or by such other means as we may provide from time to time. We will attempt to process all cancellation requests within 72 hours after we receive your request. If you cancel near the end of your billing period and are inadvertently charged for the next periodâ€™s fee, contact Customer Service to have the charges reversed. If you use our Fee-Based Product during that next period, you will not be entitled to a refund. We reserve the right to collect fees, surcharges, or costs incurred before your cancellation takes effect.
5. Availability of Fee-Based Products
The availability and use of our Fee-Based Products may be limited based on demographic, geographic, or other criteria as we may establish from time to time. You understand and agree we may disallow you from subscribing to our Fee-Based Products or may terminate your subscription to our Fee-Based Products at any time based on these criteria.
