6. PAYMENT POLICY
You may access parts of the Services for free, and other services and products require payment of subscription and/or other fees (“Paid Content”). Fees charged may be one-time payments or automatically renewing payments as described in more detail in the respective Services. By choosing to access and/or buying or subscribing to Paid Content, you authorize us to charge your credit card or other approved payment method for all the costs and charges that apply to such paid content. You are responsible for all applicable fees and charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all subscriptions and purchases made by you or through your or by anyone that has used your Account(s).
Please note that we may use a third-party payment processor to facilitate payments in the Services. If you make a purchase through a third-party application store, such as Apple App Store or Google Play Store, your purchase will be subject to such third party’s applicable payment policy.
To access Paid Content of the Services, you must provide valid and accepted payment information. If the payment information provided by you is declined for payment of the Paid Content you are subscribed to, you must provide us new valid payment information or your access to Paid Content may be suspended. You will get access to Paid Content as soon as the initial payment has been processed.
When you subscribe for Paid Content, we may from time to time offer a trial period (“Trial Period”) without payment or at a reduced rate. This may vary depending on promotions, type of subscription and the term you select at the time of purchase. We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial Period and may cancel or change the Trial Period at any time without notice and liability within the limits permitted by applicable law.
We may require you to provide your valid payment information to start the Trial Period. By providing this information, you agree that unless you cancel your paid subscription prior to the end of the Trial Period, we may automatically begin charging you for such Paid Content you subscribed to on the first day after the end of the Trial Period on a monthly or other recurring basis notified to you, until you cancel your subscription to Paid Content (turn off automatic renewal from your account settings or via the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store). If you do not want to be charged, you must cancel your subscription to such Paid Content before the end of the Trial Period. If you cancel your subscription to Paid Content, your Account will only have access to those parts of our Services that you may access for free.
BILLING, RENEWALS AND CANCELLATIONS
The subscription fee for our auto-renewable subscription plans may be billed as one-time advance payment for the subscribed period (e.g., 1, 3, 6 or 12 months) or in monthly installments charged every month in advance for the duration of the subscription period. The pricing and terms applicable to your subscription may vary depending on promotions, type of subscription and the subscription period you select at the time of purchase.
If your subscription started with a promotion or Trial at a reduced rate, your renewal rate may be higher than your initial rate.
In some cases, your payment billing dates or billing term of your subscription may change if your payment has not successfully settled on the original due date. We will inform you of the billing term change through email.
If you have registered for a paid-for subscription, you may however change your mind and receive a full refund of all monies paid within fourteen (14) days (the “Cooling-off Period”) from your subscription for such paid-for parts of our Services, provided that during that Cooling-off Period you have not at any time accessed to the paid-for parts you registered for.
If you choose to sign up for an auto-renewable subscription for Paid Content, you understand that and authorise that your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period and that payment for the renewal period is automatically charged from you using the payment information you have provided, unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period. You can cancel your auto-renewing subscription to Paid Content purchased from our site from your account settings or by contacting our support. If you purchased a paid subscription via third party, such as Apple App Store or Google Play Store, you can cancel the paid subscription via such third party following the applicable terms and payment policies of such third party.
Except as specifically provided otherwise, any payments are always FINAL and NON-REFUNDABLE.
Our prices may change from time to time. If the pricing of your subscription changes, we will notify you in advance and provide you an opportunity to review those changes to your subscription. Price changes will take effect at the beginning of the next subscription period after the date of the price change. Applying any price changes to your subscription or charging your payment details in connection with an automatic renewal applying new price is subject to your approval of the changed pricing. In accordance with applicable law, you accept the price change by continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not accept this price change, you have the right to refuse the change by cancelling the subscription to Paid Content before the price change takes effect.
CODES, GIFT CARDS AND OTHER PREPAID PRODUCTS
If you have purchased or received a code, a gift card or other pre-paid Yousician product enabling you to access Paid Content of the Services (“Code”) your order will automatically terminate at the end of the period specified in the Code. Supplemental terms and conditions provided in connection with the Code may apply to the use of the Services. In case of conflict between this Agreement and such supplemental terms, the supplemental terms shall prevail.
