Prices and Payment Terms.
All prices, discounts, and promotions posted on this Website are subject to change without notice. The price charged for a product or service will be the price in effect at the time the order is placed and may be set out in your order confirmation email.

Thereafter, you agree that monthly payments (or other periodic payments as specified on the Website at the time of purchase) will continue to be charged to your credit card on a recurring basis until you cancel your Subscription Service. The amount of the recurring charge will be the then-current subscription fee applicable to the Subscription Service you selected. You acknowledge that the amount of the recurring charge may increase if the applicable subscription fee increases. Subscription Services must be cancelled in writing (by email to [email protected]) at least thirty (30) days prior to your next recurring payment in order to avoid billing of the next Subscription Service recurring payment.
