SUBSCRIPTIONS

We will expand our brand in the year to come to offer subscriptions.  Some parts of the Service will be billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”).  Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription.

A valid payment method, including credit card or PayPal, is required to process the payment for any Urban Vain Subscription or products.  You shall provide Urban Vain, LLC with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize Urban Vain, LLC to charge all Subscription and/or payment fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.

FEE CHANGES

Urban Vain, LLC, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions.  Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
