Unless otherwise set forth on an applicable ordering document incorporating these Terms, the Services are billed in advance on a weekly or monthly basis and are non-refundable. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your payment information will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle in addition to the prorated change in the amount of your subscription for the remainder of the current billing cycle. Your subscription account will automatically renew, provided that you may cancel the subscription any time before the end of the current billing period and the cancellation will take effect on the next billing period. You will retain access to such Services from the time you cancel until the start of the next billing period, but you will not receive a refund or credit for any days remaining in your current billing period.
