Further, The Chrons. does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its Internet web site or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site.
• If you use other software products in addition to the Chrons gigs, you acknowledge and agree that your social media account may be banned or suspended. To minimize its risk, you should use The Chrons by itself, rather than in conjunction with additional software.
• The Chrons is not affiliated with Instagram or any other third-party platform such as Facebook or Twitter. The Service is not endorsed by any social media platform.
8. Membership; Pricing; Charges on Your Account.
b. Billing. The Chrons bills you through an online account (your “Billing Account”) for use of the Service. You agree to pay all charges at the prices then in effect for any use of the Service by you or other persons (including your agents) using your Billing Account, and you authorize The Chrons to charge your chosen payment provider (your “Payment Method”) for the Service. You agree to make payment using that selected Payment Method.
c. Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen payment method.
d. Recurring Billing. Our subscription plans to the Service consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. The Chrons may submit periodic charges (e.g. monthly) without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice (confirmed in writing by The Chrons) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before The Chrons could reasonably act. You may cancel your paid membership or change your payment information by logging into your account and updating these options in the billing portal of your account. For your convenience, we take your payment information so that your membership will not be interrupted. We auto-renew your membership at the level you selected. Your subscription will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate (if applicable). To cancel, simply log into your account and follow the instructions for cancellation; alternatively, you may send us an email at email@example.com. Please note that you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. If you add additional users to your account, such users will be billed in the next billing cycle for the month in which they were added and for the subsequent month. You agree to pay for each user on your account at any time during the monthly billing cycle, without proration.
e. Current Information Required. YOU MUST PROVIDE CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR THE PAYMENT PLATFORM. YOU MUST PROMPTLY UPDATE ALL INFORMATION TO KEEP YOUR BILLING INFORMATION IN THE PAYMENT PLATFORM CURRENT, COMPLETE AND ACCURATE (SUCH AS A CHANGE IN BILLING ADDRESS, CREDIT CARD NUMBER, OR CREDIT CARD EXPIRATION DATE), AND YOU MUST PROMPTLY NOTIFY THE CHRONS IF YOUR PAYMENT METHOD IS CANCELED (E.G., FOR LOSS OR THEFT) OR IF YOU BECOME AWARE OF A POTENTIAL BREACH OF SECURITY, SUCH AS THE UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OR USE OF YOUR USER NAME OR PASSWORD. CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE AT ACCOUNT SETTINGS. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE THE CHRONS ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT THE CHRONS MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY USE OF THE SERVICE UNDER THE PAYMENT PLATFORM UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE SERVICE (CONFIRMED BY YOU IN WRITING UPON REQUEST BY THE CHRONS).
f. Payment Method. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen payment method.
g. Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that The Chrons is authorized to charge your Payment Method. The Chrons may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive The Chrons’s right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to the Service.
h. Free Trial; Promotion. We may provide a free trial or other promotion (the “Promotion”), which Promotion may provide you access to some or all features afforded to paying members of the Service. In order to avoid being charged a subscription fee for the Service, you must cancel your subscription prior to the termination of the trial period. If you cancel prior to the termination of the trial period yet you are still charged for access to the Service, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
9. Modifications to Service. The Chrons reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
