You may not select any password that violates any third party’s rights or is offensive, improper, or inappropriate.

5.  Fees and Payments

You must be 18 years of age or older to purchase the Services or receive any other content, product, or service offered by us through the Services. If you are less than 18 years of age please don’t use the Service.  You agree to pay the Service fees and any other charges incurred in connection with your account for the Service (including any applicable taxes). If your Service includes access to areas containing premium content or services, your access to such areas may be subject to additional fees, terms and conditions. We will bill all charges automatically to your credit card or other electronic payment method you provide.  Service fees will be billed at the beginning of your Service and at the interval you select. As a general matter, all fees and charges are non-refundable.  We may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance and an opportunity to cancel. You are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access the Service through an Internet access provider or other Third Party service.

6. Term and Cancellation

These Terms shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services. Your Service will continue until it is cancelled in accordance with this Section.  Unless otherwise specifically stated, the term of the Services is perpetual, until canceled.   However, for annual subscriptions, we will notify you of the pending renewal of your Service at least 30 days prior to the date your Service renews, except as otherwise required by law.  For all subscriptions, you must cancel your Service at least thirty days before the end of a billing period in order to avoid billing of Service fees for the next billing cycle to your credit card unless you pay by check.  We may cancel your Service at any time upon notice to you. You may cancel your Service prior to any billing cycle by providing notice at least 30 days before the effective date of the start of the next billing cycle (subscriptions billed annually or monthly and may require termination at the end of a calendar month).  No refunds of any fees, unless Newstrackers accidently charges you after proper termination consistent with this Section 6.

Fees on credit-card transactions are authorized immediately, but not actually processed until any applicable limited time free trial period has expired (if applicable).  Fees will be based upon the Service rates in effect at the date of billing the Service fees and apply whether or not you actually use the Service during that term.  You can always find the current retail Service rates by reviewing the few schedule for the Service.

Newstrackers reserves the right to change the fees it charges for the Service at any time, including any optional products. These sorts of changes include, but are not limited to, adding fees for new/optional features and/or modifying fees for existing features or Content forming the Service. By using any of the products or features, 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 Service, as set forth below. For absence of doubt, if Newstrackers increases the base Service fee at some point during your then-current billing cycle, that increased fee will only apply to you upon the next billing cycle.

Service fees and all other fees and charges associated with your Service s (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 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 Newstrackers, and if we do receive such information, it will be treated by Newstrackers as if it were originally furnished by you. To learn more about this pass-along service being provided by your credit card issuer, please contact it directly.

You must promptly notify Newstrackers — if any information you provided to us related to your credit card — for instance, your billing address — changes or is no longer valid for any reason. Absent such notification, Newstrackers 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 billing cycle of that Service. If any Service fees or other charges billed to your credit card are declined for any reason, Newstrackers shall have the right to suspend your Service until such fees or other charges are paid in full. You agree to pay all costs (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Newstrackers in collecting any unpaid fees or other charges from you. To notify Newstrackers, please either reach out to us at info@newstrackers.com.

If you cancel your Service during your free trial period, you will not be responsible for the payment of a Service fee. However, except as otherwise provided herein, if you cancel your Service at any time after your trial period expires, your Service will continue in effect until the next monthly anniversary of the effective date of your paid Service. (For example, if your paid Service start date is on January 1 and you cancel it on June 15, your Service remains in effect until July 1, at which time it ends.)

Newstrackers may at any time immediately cancel your Service, without notice or liability, if it determines in its sole discretion that: (i) you have breached any portion of this Agreement; or (ii) your use of or access to the Service or any other portion of the Service violates any applicable law or regulation or otherwise inhibits any other subscriber from using or accessing any portion of the Service. Upon such cancellation, you will have no further right to access or use any portion of the Service. None of the foregoing limits any other legal, equitable, or contractual rights available to Newstrackers.

Newstrackers may, in its sole discretion, choose not to continue your Service by sending a notice of cancellation at any time during your Service 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 Service will cease.

If you purchased the Service via a third party In-App Purchase (IAP) mechanism, then, subject to applicable law, you may only cancel your Service through such third party. Please direct all questions regarding the status of your account to third party.
