Fees for Use
The Website is a freemium subscription-based service that offers both free and paid plans for our users. We may offer trial periods of premium features that allow you to use upgraded plans without charge for a period. Once such a trial period ends, continued usage of the premium features will require you to subscribe to an upgraded plan if desired.
All subscription charges from the Website will be billed monthly or annually on a recurring basis until canceled based on the selected plan. Switching between active plans occurs on a prorated basis for both upgrades and downgrades based on the unused time remaining on your plan. Therefore, it is possible to not incur a new charge until necessary if enough previously charged credit can be applied during a plan switch.
As we continue development on the Website by introducing additional features, we reserve the right to adjust the prices of our subscription plans in the future. For users with active plans, we will give at least (45) days notice via email before the next billing cycle in which the changes will take effect.
The charges incurred from the Website are exclusive of any taxes, levies, or duties imposed by international taxing authorities and you may be responsible for payment of such if applicable depending on your jurisdiction.
