The Service allows Users to engage in economic transactions, namely, using a credit card or debit card or other acceptable payment mechanism (“Payment Method”) to pay for services offered by Company. When you provide information related to a Payment Method to Company, you represent that you are the owner or authorized user of such Payment Method. You agree to provide current, complete, and accurate billing information for your account. You agree that Company and/or a third party may charge your Payment Method for any amounts (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) as may be accrued by or in connection with your account, including without limitation any recurrent subscription fees (which will be charged automatically for the subscription term) and any Service upgrades. You agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information relating to your Payment Method. Failure to comply with this provision (including without limitation falsification of any information relating to your Payment Method) may, at Company’s option, result in immediate suspension or termination of your right to use the Services. If your Payment Method expires you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. Company reserves the right to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your Membership account and for all such amounts and all costs incurred in connection with the collection of such uncollected amounts, including without limitation collection agency fees, attorneys’ fees and court costs.

In some circumstances, your Membership may be paid for by or through a third party, such as a university or other intermediary.

Nonetheless, Company reserves the right, but not the obligation, to offer a refund or discount or other consideration (“Credits”) to Users at any time, and for any reason. The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at Company’s sole discretion. The provision of Credits in one instance does not entitle you to Credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate Company to provide Credits in the future, under any circumstance.
