Grant of License and Ownership
Subject to the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, Licensor grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Subscription Products in accordance with the Subscription you chose (the “Purpose”).
Licensor offers the Subscription Products on a subscription basis with recurring payments (a “Subscription”). Subscriptions may differ in length of Subscription (“Subscription Period”), price for each Subscription Period (“Subscription Fee”) and/or the types of Subscription Products and features offered. The Subscription Period, Subscription Fee for each Subscription Period and types of Subscription Products and features offered will be disclosed when you initially chose your Subscription. Unless indicated otherwise when you subscribe, Subscriptions will renew automatically, with payment due prior to each renewal.
Your access to the Subscription may not be established until Licensor has verified that the billing method you chose prior to your initial Subscription Period, as changed from time to time in accordance with Licensor’s policies (each, a “Payment Method”) is accurate and that your user account is in good standing. Licensor reserves the right to deny any form of Payment Method in its sole discretion. If the Payment Method being used is a credit or debit card, Licensor may obtain pre-approval for a charge up to the amount of the charge.
You agree to pay your Subscription Fee in advance of each Subscription Period. You hereby grant Licensor the right to deduct any Subscription Fee automatically in accordance with the Payment Method in effect at the applicable time. You hereby represent and warrant that (i) you have the right to utilize any Payment Method, (ii) you have the right to provide information regarding any such Payment Method to Licensor, (iii) you have the right to grant Licensor the right to automatically deduct any Subscription Fee(s) using any such Payment Method, (iv) information you provide related to a Payment Method is true, correct and complete, (v) charges incurred by you will be honored by the Payment Method you have chosen and (vi) you will pay the charges incurred by you in the amounts posted, including any applicable taxes.
Licensor reserves the right to discontinue or modify any Payment Method. Licensor reserves the right to change or modify a Subscription Fee at any time. Any such modification of a Subscription Fee shall be effective as of the end of the then-current Subscription Period. You are responsible for all charges incurred under the user account associated with your Subscription. Licensor reserves the right to deactivate a Subscription if payment is past due, regardless of the dollar amount. You further agree that Licensor may charge any other applicable fees for Additional Subscription Products (as defined herein), if disclosed to you in connection with your purchase of such Additional Subscription Products, to your Payment Method.
