TERM AND TERMINATION
PAYMENTS AND BILLING
Payment . All license fees are non-refundable and payable in advance in the manner set forth in the order form filled out and submitted by or on behalf of you.
Recurring Billing . By starting your subscription to the Application and providing or designating a payment method, you authorize us to charge you an annual membership fee at the then current rate.
No Refunds . PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the Application through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our users (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
Payment Methods . You may edit your payment method information by visiting your “Account” page, located at the top of the Application screen. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your payment method information or cancel your account (see, “Cancellation and Automatic Renewal Opt Out” below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the payment method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain payment methods, the issuer of your payment method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your payment method service provider for details.
Cancellation and Automatic Renewal Opt Out . You may cancel your subscription at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Application through the end of your annual billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS. To cancel and opt out of automatic renewal, go to your “Account” page located at the top of the Application screen and un-check the box marked “Automatic Renewal.” If you cancel your subscription, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, go to your “Account” page.
The Application may contain technological copy protection or other security features designed to prevent unauthorized use of the Application, including features to protect against use of the Application: (i) beyond the scope of the license granted to pursuant to the above license grant; or (ii) prohibited under the restrictions section. You shall not, and shall not attempt to, remove, disable, circumvent or otherwise create or implement any workaround to, any such copy protection or security features.
COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
By submitting an email address and telephone number to us, you agree that we can contact you directly or through an agent, at the email address and number you provide, potentially using automated technology (including texts/SMS messaging) or a pre-recorded message. Your consent is not an obligation to receive any of our products and/or services.
Injunction . You agree that breach of this section would cause us irreparable injury, for which monetary damages would not provide adequate compensation, and that in addition to any other remedy, we will be entitled to injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach, without proving actual damage or posting a bond or other security.

IF APPLICABLE LAW LIMITS THE APPLICATION OF THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION, OUR LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMISSIBLE.
We shall not have the responsibility for any delay or failure of performance resulting from causes beyond its reasonable control and without its fault or negligence. In such event, IMO shall perform its obligations hereunder within a reasonable time after the cause of the delay or failure has been remedied.
We make no representations that the content or the Application are appropriate or may be used or downloaded outside the United States. Access to the Application may not be legal in certain countries outside the United States.
