1. Starter Story Pricing: The cost for the Starter Story subscription is reflected on the Site, and payment is due at the time you subscribe. Your subscription automatically renews each year, until canceled as explained below, and you will automatically be billed. Fees are fully earned upon payment, so there are no refunds or credits for partially used subscription periods. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are non-refundable.
2. Updates to Pricing and Services. We may amend fees and charges for existing services, at any time in our sole discretion. We may modify the services, and we may add new features or services for additional fees. Any change to your pricing or payment terms shall become effective in the next billing cycle. If you do not agree to this increase, you can choose to terminate your subscription at the end of your then-current term by giving the notice required in the Term and Cancellation section below.
3. Payment. You agree to provide a valid payment method that we can charge. We will charge the subscription fees and any applicable fees to that payment method. You authorize us to charge your payment method until all outstanding fees are paid. You further authorize us to use a third party to process payments and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to such third party.
3.1 Delayed Transactions. In the event a User's Payment Method was declined, Starter Story may attempt to process the transaction again under the same conditions as the transaction was initiated by the User, within a few days of the User's first attempt to purchase their Membership. Where the Payment Method is approved in such a circumstance, the User will receive an email confirming the successful completion of their transaction. In the event that you or we (through our payment service providers) update your Authorized Payment Method to remedy a change in validity or expiration date, we will automatically resume billing you for your subscription.
3.2. Updating Authorized Payment Methods. If you want to use an Authorized Payment Method, or if there is a change in your information, you may edit your information by accessing your account setting page. It is your responsibility to keep your contact information and payment information current and updated.
3.3 Suspension. If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or if we are unable to process your transaction using the Authorized Payment Method provided, we reserve the right to revoke your access to the services until payment is made in full or your subscription is terminated.
4. Starter Story Special Offers. We may enable special offers for certain eligible groups. If you qualify and subscribe through a special offer, you will be billed the advertised special rate for one year and automatically renewed at the regular list rate for any term after that.
5. Cancellation and Termination. Your access to Starter Story will continue in effect until you cancel your account, or we terminate it.
5.1 Cancellation. You may cancel your Starter Story account at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation after the date of purchase. You may cancel your subscription by navigating to the “Subscription” tab within your dashboard. If you cancel before the end of your billing cycle you will have access to your account for the remainder of the billing cycle. You must cancel your account before it automatically renews each month or year (depending on which account you select) in order to avoid billing of the next term’s fees to your Authorized Payment Method. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are non-refundable, except as specifically provided for in this Agreement.
