4. SUBSCRIPTIONS AND BILLING
Viewing choices sometimes involves giving users the choice of paying a fee in order to view content that Liguori Publications would not otherwise be able to make available without charging a fee. As part of that, access to the some of the content requires payment by you of a subscription fee, such as Liguori Digital Services.
You agree that your Liguori Digital Services account is for individual use only or for group access and viewing for a subscribing single entity (parish, school). Additionally, you agree that for various reasons, such as restrictions from content licensors and other limitations or considerations from third parties, certain Content that may be accessible through one Property may not be accessible through other Properties.
By signing up for your Liguori Digital services subscription, or any other Liguori Publications subscriptions, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a monthly or annual subscription or license fee, any other fees for additional services you may purchase, and any applicable fees in connection with your use of Liguori Digital Services to the credit card or other payment method accepted by Liguori Publications ("Payment Method") that you provided during registration.
Ongoing Subscription and Cancellation.
If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up for during registration, or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your payment method. If your payment method expires and you do not edit your information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
If a monthly billing option is offered and selected, we will automatically bill your payment method each month. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your subscription plan, and you authorize us to charge your payment method for the corresponding amounts. If Liguori Publications changes the subscription fee or other charges for Liguori Digital Services from time to time, we will give you advance notice of these changes by email.
All fees and charges are nonrefundable except in connection with your early cancellation of the account as further described in "Ongoing Subscription" below. Very rarely, if there are special circumstances where Liguori Publications determines it is appropriate (e.g., the Liguori Digital Services or other Liguori Publications services is unavailable for days due to technical difficulties), we may provide credits to affected subscribers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at Liguori Publications sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle anyone to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances.
Your Liguori Digital Services and other Liguori Publications subscriptions will continue in effect for monthly subscribers on a month-to-month, and for annual subscribers on a year-to-year basis, unless and until you cancel your subscription or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each month or annually, depending on the term of the subscription you selected, in order to avoid the next month's or year’s billing. We will bill the subscription fee to the payment method you provide to us during registration (or to a different payment method if you change your account information). If you cancel your subscription, no refunds will be given for month-to-month subscribers. Annual subscribers who cancel their subscriptions can receive a refund of the annual subscription amount paid less the number of full or partially expired calendar months times the monthly subscription rate.
