Payment

6. Monthly Plans

When you sign up for a Monthly Plan, you agree to recurring billing. Billing occurs on the same day each month, based on the date that you started the Monthly Plan. Billing for Monthly Plans may be paused, and you may choose to close your account permanently at any time.

Our charges for Monthly Plans are posted on our Website and may be changed from time to time. If any part of a month is included in the Term, then payment is due for the full month. Payments are due for any month on the same or closest date to the day you made your first monthly payment (the “Pay Date”). If you go over your limit and reach another pricing level, then you’ll have to pay at the higher level on or before the next Pay Date. If the Term ends before that payment is due, you’ll still be required to make one payment at the higher level. If the Term ends before that payment is due, you’ll still be required to make one payment at the higher level.

7. Credit Cards

As long as you’re a Member with a paid account or otherwise have an outstanding balance with us, you’ll provide us with valid credit card information or other payment source information and authorize us to deduct the monthly charges against that credit card or other payment source. You’ll replace the information for any credit card that expires with information for a valid one. If your credit card is automatically replaced with a new card by a payment processor, you acknowledge and agree that we’re authorized to deduct any charges on your account against the new credit card. Anyone using a credit card or other payment source represents and warrants that they are authorized to use that credit card, or other payment source, that any and all charges may be billed to that credit card or other payment source and won’t be rejected. If we’re unable to process your credit card or payment source order order, we’ll try to contact you by email and suspend your account until your payment can be processed.
