This Agreement (and your subscription) is effective for an unlimited period of time from the beginning of your Trial License. Thereafter, you may, but are not obligated to, select one of the Subscribed Services subscriptions, following which this Agreement (and your subscription) will continue for the length of the subscription term for the Subscribed Services subscription you have selected and thereafter continue and automatically renew for successive renewal terms, each being equal to the length of the renewal term you initially selected, unless and until terminated by you or by us in accordance with this Agreement. Unless and until you cancel your optional subscription or we terminate it, your subscription and this Agreement will be automatically renewed (and charged to the account you have provided) for successive renewal terms, each being equal to the length of the subscription term you initially selected, at the expiration of your current subscription term and each renewal term thereafter, for Mealime’s then applicable subscription fee for the Subscribed Services subscription you have previously selected (which subscription fee is subject to change at Mealime’s sole discretion). You must cancel your subscription before it renews at the expiration of your current subscription term in order to avoid billing for the subsequent renewal term.
(a) License Fees: Mealime’s current fee schedule for subscriptions for the Mealime Products and Services are available on the Website at: http://mealime.com/pro, which are incorporated herein by reference (the “Fee Schedule”). All fees and dollar amounts are stated in the lawful money of the United States of America. All fees are prepaid.
Cancellation may be made at any time in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Fees for any current optional subscription period will be payable notwithstanding cancellation of your subscription, but subsequent renewals will be discontinued. Should you choose to select one of the Subscribed Services subscriptions, we will automatically charge your credit card for Mealime’s then applicable subscription fee for the Subscribed Services subscription you have selected and you authorize us to do so. Thereafter, on any renewal (automatic or otherwise) of your subscription, we will charge your credit card for Mealime’s then-current subscription fee for the applicable period for the Subscribed Services subscription being renewed (automatic or otherwise) and you authorize us to do so. If we are unable to process your credit card at a renewal period, your optional subscription may be immediately terminated and you will be reverted to the unlimited, full-access Trial Period. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with the use of the Subscribed Services based on the applicable subscription or renewal thereof that you have purchased. Automatic renewals will be processed (and your card charged) within thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the term and each renewal period thereafter.
(b) Billing Information: Should you choose to purchase an optional subscription, you must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your billing account. You are responsible for ensuring this information is correct and must promptly update all information to keep your billing account current, complete, and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date). You must promptly notify Mealime if your credit card is cancelled (for example, for loss or theft). In addition, you agree that Mealime has permission to retain and/or share with financial institutions and payment processing firms (including any institutions or firms Mealime retains in the future) your submitted payment information in order to process your purchase.
(c) Late Payments: If any amounts due hereunder are not received by Mealime by the due date, then at Mealime’s discretion, such charges may accrue late interest at the rate of twelve percent (12%) per year or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is lower, from the date such payment was due until the date paid and your subscription may be immediately terminated.
(d) GST/PST/QST/HST Collection for Canadian Residents: GST and PST/QST or HST is included in Mealime's fee schedule for Canadian residents. This means that the GST and PST/QST or HST portion that you are required to pay based on the province or territory of residence billing details you provide when subscribing to Mealime is already included in the total subscription fees.
