You represent and warrant that: (a) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (b) the information you supply to the Service Provider is true, correct, and complete.
By submitting such information, you grant the Service Provider the right to provide the information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of your Purchase.

If the rules for a Promotion conflict with these Terms, the Promotion rules will apply.

Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis ("Subscription(s)"). You will be billed in advance. Billing may be on a recurring and periodic basis ("Billing Cycle"). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or yearly basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.
If billing is on a recurring basis, your Subscription will automatically renew at the end of each Billing Cycle. If billing is not on a recurring basis, your Subscription may be renewed in advance of the then-current Billing Cycle.
When a Subscription is renewed, it will renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or the Service Provider cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your account management page, or by simply discontinuing your use of the Service.
A valid payment method, including credit card or PayPal, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide the Service Provider with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, province/state/region as applicable, zip/postal code, country, telephone number, and a valid payment method. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize the Service Provider to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, the Service Provider will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
The Service Provider, in its sole discretion, may provide you with a credit note. Reasons for which a credit note may be issued include, but are not limited to:

You may be required to enter your billing information in order to sign up for the Free Trial.
If you do enter your billing information when signing up for the Free Trial, you will not be charged by the Service Provider until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you cancelled your Subscription, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected.
At any time and without notice, the Service Provider reserves the right to (a) modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer, or (b) cancel such Free Trial offer.
