Fees; Subscriptions; Cancellation
Pricing for access to the full Website varies by plan and store item ("Fees"). For your convenience, all subscriptions extend month-to-month at the end of their obligation period. Subscribers who wish to avoid charges for subsequent months must follow the cancellation process set forth below before the end of the current term. We may also run specials periodically allowing you to access the Website on a discounted basis. Such specials may be subject to additional terms and conditions, such as unique file caps or only specific content types.
The subscription term for monthly subscribers begins on the day you initiate your subscription and continues for a month period thereafter. Each renewal period under a monthly subscription begins on the last day of the previous term and continues for a month period thereafter. The subscription term for annual subscribers begins on the day you initiate your subscription and continues for a one-year period thereafter.
IF YOU ARE A MONTHLY SUBSCRIBER AND DO NOT CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE END OF THE MONTH, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY EXTENDED FOR AN ADDITIONAL MONTH AT THE END OF EACH MONTH. SUCH RENEWAL WILL BE AT THE SAME SUBSCRIPTION FEE AS WHEN YOU FIRST SUBSCRIBED, PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES, UNLESS WE NOTIFY YOU AT LEAST TEN (10) DAYS PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR CURRENT TERM THAT THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE WILL INCREASE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR PAYMENT METHOD WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED FOR SUCH SUBSCRIPTION FEES, PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES, UPON EACH SUCH AUTO RENEWAL.

The Company will charge the Fees to the credit card you designate.

If the Company permits you to use a credit card to pay for any Fees, you will be asked to provide the Company with a credit card number from a card issuer that we accept. The Company may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to a purchase to verify the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. These pre-authorizations will reduce your available balance by the authorization amount until it is released or reconciled with the actual charge. Please contact your credit card issuer if you have additional questions regarding when an authorization amount will be removed from your statement.
