Sometimes (such as when you contact us through an online form, purchase or order a product, sign up for our newsletters, or subscribe to a service) we will ask you to provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing addresses, employer, telephone number, or e-mail address. We also maintain a record of your online purchases. Whether or not you choose to provide the information we request is entirely up to you.

5 SUBSCRIPTIONS AND BILLING.
5.1 FEES. While we may, from time to time, offer trial or free access to the Services, we charge fees to access certain premium Services. The Services may include different Content and features, with different benefits, conditions, and limitations. Your access to those premium Services, upon expiration of a trial period, is subject to payment of our fees by you or by your Firm. What’s more, if you provide a credit card or other payment method accepted by us (Payment Method) for a subscription, you expressly agree that we are authorized to charge a periodic subscription fee on a recurring basis corresponding to the terms of that subscription, any other fees for additional services purchased, and any applicable taxes in connection with use of such subscription to the Payment Method. If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up to use during registration, or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, a Payment Method may be edited by logging in on the Site and changing account details. If a Payment Method is provided to access a subscription, including in connection with a free trial offer, the Site may attempt to verify the information entered. We may do this by processing an authorization hold, which is a standard practice. We will not charge you in connection with this authorization hold, if any. If a Payment Method expires and Payment Method information is not edited or the applicable Account cancelled, we may continue billing, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
5.2 BILLING. As used in this Agreement, billing indicates either a charge or debit, as applicable, against a Payment Method. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of the subscription selected by you or your Administrator and at the start of each new Billing Period thereafter unless and until the applicable subscription, Account, or Services are otherwise suspended, modified, or discontinued pursuant to this Agreement.
5.3 TIMING OF BILLING. We may automatically bill the Payment Method provided on the calendar day corresponding to commencement of the applicable subscription and at the beginning of each new Billing Period, subject to maintenance of the applicable subscription. The interval of time between each payment due date shall correspond to the term of your subscription and be referred to herein as a Billing Period. If a subscription begins on a day not contained in a given month, we bill the Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you or your Firm have a monthly subscription and either became a paying subscriber on January 31, the Payment Method would next be billed on February 28. The timing of billing and the amount billed each Billing Period may vary, including for example adjustments due to free trials and other promotional offers, digital coupon redemptions, credits applied, changes in subscriptions, changes in Payment Methods, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts.
5.4 PROMOTIONAL PRICING. If we offer you a promotion (e.g., a promotional price) for a subscription, the specific terms of the promotion will be disclosed during sign-up or in other materials provided in connection with the particular promotion. In the case of promotional pricing, after a promotion ends, we will begin billing the Payment Method at the regular price after that promotion ends unless the applicable subscription is cancelled prior to the end of the promotion or unless otherwise disclosed in communications made available to you or your Firm.
5.5 SUBSCRIPTION CHANGES. The terms of a subscription may be changed by us, including price and features, from time to time, effective as of the beginning of your next Billing Period following the date of the change. If we change the subscription fee or other charges for a subscription, we will provide advance notice of these changes to you or your Administrator. However, we will not be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes.
5.6 CREDITS. Very rarely, if there are special circumstances where we determine it is appropriate (e.g., access to the Site or some premium Services is unavailable for days due to technical difficulties), we may provide billing credits. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance will not entitle you or anyone else to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances.
5.7 TERM. Subscriptions will continue in effect on a recurring basis corresponding to the term of those subscriptions unless and until subscriptions are cancelled, or an Account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to this Agreement. Subscriptions must be cancelled before the next renewal date in order to avoid the next billing. We will bill the periodic subscription fee plus any applicable taxes to the Payment Method provided to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). If you cancel your subscription, cancellation will be effective at the end of the current Billing Period – this means that you will have continued access to your subscription for the remainder of that period, but you will not receive a refund. You can cancel your subscription by logging into your Account and changing your settings within the Site. If you pay for the Services through your account with a third party (e.g., Apple iTunes) and want to cancel your subscription or manage your billing, you may need to do so through your account with such third party.
5.8 COLLECTIONS. It is important that you honor the payment obligations to which you agree. Accordingly, we reserve the right to retry billing your Payment Method after failed attempts (e.g., if your Payment Method is rejected). We also reserve the right to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your subscription for our Services, if any. You will remain liable for all such amounts and all costs incurred in connection with the collection of these amounts, including, without limitation, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.
5.9 FREE TRIALS. On occasion, we may offer free trials to a particular premium Service for certain qualifying users. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of your free trial will be stated in the material describing the particular free trial or during your sign-up. Certain limitations may exist with respect to combining free trials with any other offers. We reserve the right to determine eligibility for free trials. To view the specific details regarding your free trial, if any, log in on the Site and view your account details. Once your free trial period ends, we will begin billing your Payment Method for your periodic subscription fees (plus any applicable taxes), unless you cancel prior to the end of your free trial. For that reason, unless otherwise indicated in the free trial description, you may be asked to set up a valid Payment Method when redeeming a free trial offer. If you accept a free trial to a Service, at the end of the free trial, you may be charged a prorated amount for the Service to cover the period between the date the free trial ends and your next Billing Period begins.
5.10 END OF FREE TRIAL. It is very important to understand that you will not receive a notice from us that your free trial has ended and that payment for premium Services is due. If you wish to avoid charges to your Payment Method, you must cancel your subscription prior to midnight Mountain Time on the last day of your free trial period. You may cancel your subscription at any time as described in this Agreement. We will continue to bill your Payment Method for your subscription on a recurring basis corresponding to the term of your subscription until you or your Firm cancel or the account or applicable aspect of the Services is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to this Agreement. To the extent subscriptions are offered in conjunction with purchases of, or payment for, third party products or services, you agree that we will not be liable to you for any claims arising out of or related to your purchase or use of such third-party products or services. If you cancel your subscription during a free trial or while using a promotional code or other credits, cancellation may be effective immediately.
