If you choose to subscribe to any of our premium, paid services, these are the payment and billing terms that apply. Paid services and billing will auto-renew unless you cancel. You may cancel at any time.

(a) Payment Terms

We offer certain premium versions of the Services (e.g., interacting with Tech Wizards via the Tech Wizard Services) (the “Premium Services”) for a fee. By signing up for and using any of the Premium Services, you agree to these Terms, and any additional terms and conditions that are provided here. You also agree to waive your 14-day right of withdrawal to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, so that you are able to immediately access all of the Premium Services.

The Premium Services provide you access to certain enhanced services, features and functionality. By signing up for and using the Premium Services, you agree to pay the fees or other incurred charges that apply to the Premium Services (such as subscription fees).

When you sign up for the Premium Services, payment will be made through Google Play (“Payment Method”). The information you provide must be complete and accurate, and you are responsible for keeping it up to date.

Payment for the Premium Services will be made on a monthly or annual basis. All fees due for the Premium Services are payable in advance through Google Play, and will be billed automatically at the start of the monthly or annual Premium Service period, as applicable. Unless otherwise stated, Premium Services will auto-renew until you elect to cancel your access to Premium Services. All purchases of Premium Services are final and non-refundable.

(b) Termination or Cancellation of Premium Services

If you do not pay the fees or charges due for your use of the Premium Services, we may make reasonable efforts to notify you and resolve the issue; however, we reserve the right to disable or terminate your access to the Premium Services (and may do so without notice).

You can cancel the Premium Services at any time. More information on how to cancel can be found on the Google Play site. Once you have cancelled your Premium Service and received confirmation, no other changes can be made to your account. The cancellation of a Premium Service will go into effect at the end of your then current billing cycle, and you will have the same level of access to the Premium Service through the remainder of such billing cycle. For example, if you are billed on a monthly basis and cancel during a given month, you will be charged for the entirety of that month and maintain access to the Premium Service through the end of that month.
