All subscriptions are automatically renewing. This means that once you sign up for a free trial or become a subscribing member, your subscription will be automatically renewed and your billing method will be charged based on the subscription program (semiannually, quarterly, monthly, etc.) you have chosen unless you opt out or cancel by following the instructions in this Agreement. Please ensure that you correct any information which has changed in respect to your Payment Method to prevent your subscription lapsing due to us being unable to process your payment. Billing charges will be processed immediately when your order is taken and according to the billing details displayed when you choose a subscription, as well as when your subscription is automatically renewed. In the case of subscriptions longer than one month, you will be notified via email before your subscription ends and asked to correct any information which has changed and reminded of the opportunity to “opt out” of your renewal. The renewal of the subscription takes place subject to the terms and conditions in force on the date of renewal. When other offers, promotions or free trials are made available, the specific terms and conditions that apply to each will be stated at the time of purchase; please ensure you have noted any relevant rules, cancellation dates or price changes when a promotion or free trial ends.

Cancellations and Refunds. Monthly subscriptions that are billed on a monthly basis may be cancelled at any time but are not eligible for a refund. For initial purchases of subscriptions longer than one month where the entire subscription amount is billed at one time, you may cancel during the first 30 days and receive a full refund. Your cancellation policy will depend on the billing details displayed when you choose such subscription. For all subscriptions longer than one month, you must cancel within seven days of the renewal date. If you cancel your subscription but are not eligible for a refund, you will retain access to the applicable Website(s) until your subscription expires. Your cancellation must be received by end of business (5:00 p.m. Mountain Time) on the appropriate day as described above.
