18 - Subscription and Service. You may not use the Premium Service without a valid subscription from Pen&Paper. To obtain a subscription, you must register for the Premium Service either by completing the online registration form available on the Service or by calling the number listed below under "Customer Service and Product Support." Your subscription will not be valid unless and until Pen&Paper accepts your registration. By registering for the Premium Service, you represent and warrant that all registration information that you provide is true, complete, and accurate, and you agree to notify Pen&Paper promptly of any changes to this registration information. This notification can be effected either by editing your user profile in the Service or by calling the number listed below under "Customer Service and Product Support."
You may be offered a free trial subscription to the Premium Service, beginning on the date on which Pen&Paper accepts your registration. If you don't terminate during this trial period, the initial term of your regular paid Premium Service subscription will start immediately after the free trial period ends, and will continue for the length of time that you selected when you registered. If you have taken a Premium Membership trial in the past 6 months, you will not receive a free trial and your credit card will be charged immediately for the subscription fee associated with the term you select.
You understand that, unless you notify us that you wish to terminate your subscription before the end of your then-current subscription term, your subscription will continue to automatically renew for successive terms of the same duration and your credit card will be charged for each such renewal at the subscription fee in effect at the time of that renewal. In those instances where you took advantage of a special or introductory offer to become a Premium Member, your subscription will automatically renew to the term specified in the offer and your credit card will be charged the subscription fee in effect at the time of that renewal. The term "subscription term" shall refer to the term of your subscription then in effect, regardless of whether it is the initial term or any renewal of that term.
PEN&PAPER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE PREMIUM SERVICE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ADDING OR REMOVING FEATURES). IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY SUCH CHANGES, OR IF YOU ARE OTHERWISE DISSATISFIED WITH THE PREMIUM SERVICE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ITS PERFORMANCE OR AVAILABILITY), YOUR ONLY REMEDY WILL BE TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, AS SET FORTH BELOW.
Your subscription is personal to you, and you may not transfer or share your subscription with any other person (including but not limited to your coworkers) other than immediate family members living in the same household, provided that: (i) such family members have read and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Premium membership Agreement; (ii) your subscription is not simultaneously used by more than one person at any given time; and (iii) you agree to be responsible for any use of your subscription by those other family members.
You agree to pay the subscription fees and any other charges incurred in connection with your user name and password (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Subscription fees will be billed at the beginning of your subscription or any renewal. Unless we state in writing otherwise, all fees and charges are nonrefundable. We may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance.
19 - Charges and Billing Practices. If offered a free trial period, you will not be charged a subscription fee during that free trial period but may be subject to Printing Fees if you print out more than the maximum number of Printable Reports allowed during your trial period (see above). Subscription Fees on credit-card transactions will be authorized immediately, but not actually processed; Printing Fees will be processed when incurred. If you remain a Premium member when the free trial period ends, you will be charged for the initial term of your subscription and then, at the beginning of each renewal term, if any, for the subscription fee for that renewal term. Subscription fees will be based upon the subscription rates in effect at the start of each subscription term and apply whether or not you actually use the Premium Service during that term. You can always find the current retail subscription rates by reviewing the Member Benefits on the Service. Printing fees will be assessed at the then-current rate at the time of printing. Subscription fees and Printing Fees are nonrefundable, except as set forth below.
Pen&Paper reserves the right to change the fees it charges for products, services or features (collectively, "Products") offered in connection with the Premium Service and/or the Service at any time. These sorts of changes include, but are not limited to, adding fees for new/optional Products and/or modifying fees for existing Products. By using any of the Products, with which there are associated fees, you agree to pay those fees. If you do not want to pay these associated fees, you must cancel your subscription, as set forth below.
Subscription fees and all others fees and charges associated with your subscription (including, but not limited to, any applicable federal, state, and local taxes) will be billed automatically to the credit card you provide when registering for the Premium Service ("your credit card"). If your credit card is a VISA or MasterCard and the number or expiration date for your credit card changes for any reason (for instance, you get a new number because your old card expired, was stolen, etc.), that updated information may be automatically passed on from your credit card issuer to Pen&Paper, and if we do receive such information, it will be treated by Pen&Paper as if it were originally furnished by you. To learn more about this service being provided by your credit card issuer, please contact them directly.
You must promptly notify Pen&Paper (as set forth below) if any information related to your credit card changes is no longer valid or of any other change to the information you provided Pen&Paper regarding your credit card (including, but not limited to, changes to your billing address or other pertinent contact information). Absent such notification, Pen&Paper will assume that all of the information related to your credit card remains valid and will submit to the card processor all information that it requires for approval, both when you initially subscribe and, if applicable, upon the commencement of any renewal of that subscription. If any subscription fees or other charges billed to your credit card are declined for any reason, Pen&Paper shall have the right to suspend your subscription until such subscription fees or other charges are paid in full. You agree to pay all costs (including attorneys' fees) incurred by Pen&Paper
in collecting any unpaid subscription fees or other charges from you.
20 – Cancellation. If you bought your subscription through Pen&Paper , you may cancel your subscription by calling the telephone number listed under "Customer Service and Product Support" to notify Pen&Paper . Pen&Paper will not process cancellations submitted via email.
If you cancel your subscription during your free trial period, you will not be responsible for the payment of a subscription fee. However, except as otherwise provided herein, if you cancel your subscription at any time after your trial period expires, your membership will continue in effect until the monthly anniversary of the effective date of your paid subscription and then terminate on that date. (For example, if your paid subscription start date is on January 1 and you cancel on June 15, your membership continues until July 1, at which time it ends.) For Annual Members, any remaining charges will be refunded, prorated on a monthly basis, to your credit card after your membership is terminated.
Pen&Paper may immediately cancel your subscription, without notice or liability, if it determines in its sole discretion that: (i) you have breached any portion of this User Agreement; or (ii) your use of or access to the Premium Service or the Service violates any applicable law or regulation or otherwise inhibits any other subscriber from using or accessing the Premium Service or any other service offered by Pen&Paper on the Service. None of the foregoing limits any other legal, equitable, or contractual rights available to Pen&Paper .
Pen&Paper may, in its sole discretion, choose not to renew your subscription by sending a notice of non-renewal at any time during your subscription term to the e-mail address you provided when completing your registration. You will be deemed to have received this notice, whether or not you saw it or the e-mail address provided by you continues to be valid. In the event of such a notice, your subscription will cease and will not automatically renew at the end of your then-current subscription term.
If you registered within the mobile Service and bought a subscription or upgraded a free account to a premium subscription by purchasing in the app, you may only cancel your subscription through Apple.
