The Company offers Providers a free trial period of the Services. This
trial period includes a 7 calendar day period from the state date for
Provider to upload content to the Services, and a 60 calendar day period
following that for Provider to use the Services.
Prior to the end of the trial period (normally, approximately fifteen days
prior), the Company will contact Provider concerning a subscription to the
Services. If Provider wishes to continue using the Services, Provider will
sign up for a monthly or yearly subscription by providing a credit card or
other automatic billing information to the Company.
Payments will be made via automatic billing on or near the first of each
month for that month, for monthly subscriptions; and on or near the first
of each year, for yearly subscriptions. Where Provider’s trial period does
not end on the first of the month or year, Provider will be immediately
billed a pro-rated amount (calculated on a 30-day month or 12-month year)
for the remainder of the month or year at that time. Billing will then
continue as above. By signing up for a subscription, Provider is
authorizing this repeat charge.
To cancel the Services, Provider must notify the Company, in writing, of
its desire to cancel the Services at least 7 full calendar days prior to
the first of the coming month.
E. Refund Policy—Monthly Subscribers
There are no refunds for monthly subscribers. If a monthly subscriber
cancels its subscription during a paid month, there is no refund for any
remainder of that month. If a monthly subscriber cancels 7 or fewer days
before the first of the coming month, the subscriber will be charged for
the coming month.
F. Refund Policy—Yearly Subscribers
For yearly subscribers, a prorated refund is available for any full month
remaining in the calendar year after cancellation, provided the yearly
subscriber cancels at least 7 full calendar days prior to the first of the
coming month. A yearly subscriber will not receive a refund for the coming
month if it does not cancel at least 7 full calendar days prior to the
first of the coming month.
