All or some parts of the Service are made available on a subscription basis. You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis ("Billing Cycle"). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Whether you are using monthly or yearly billing, your account may be charged on a monthly basis.
You agree that at the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew and your payment method for such Subscription will automatically be charged at the start of each new Subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that Billing Cycle, under the same conditions as the prior Billing Cycle unless you cancel it or the Company cancels it.
A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You must provide the Company with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, billing email address ("Billing Email Address") and valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize the Company to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, the Company may attempt to charge the credit card on file one or more times. Should payment continue to fail, the Subscription will be canceled. You may cancel your Subscription renewal through your online account page: click your profile picture in the top right corner of the app, then click "Settings." From there, under "Hearth", click "Subscription Management", then click "Manage your Subscription." You'll be able to update your billing information, cancel your subscription, change or add a payment method, and view your invoice history.
Payment obligations are non-cancelable, and fees paid are non-refundable and there are no credits for partially used Subscription periods. Certain refund requests for Subscriptions may be considered by the Company on a case-by-case basis and granted in sole discretion of the Company.
The Company, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
The Company will provide you with reasonable notice (by sending an email to your Billing Email Address that outlines fee changes) at least 30 days prior to any change in Subscription fees to allow you to terminate your Subscription before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
The Company may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time("Free Trial"). If you are on a Free Trial, you may cancel at any time until the last day of your Free Trial by following the cancellation procedures outlined in the Subscription section of these Terms. If you or the Company cancel your Free Trial, you acknowledge and agree that we may delete all of your Content or data that was assigned to your Free Trial.
