- You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your membership has begun. CLICK THE “LOGIN/YOUR ACCOUNT” LINK AT THE TOP OF THE activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca WEB PAGE (activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca) TO FIND CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on the agreed and accepted basis for your membership fee for your membership plan until you cancel.
- Recurring Billing. By starting your activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca membership and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca service to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, including gift card redemption and promotional code redemption, and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more charges.
- No Refunds for Subscriptions. 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 service 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 members (“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 our website and clicking on the “Login/Your Account” link, available at the top of the pages of the activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca website. 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” 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. You may cancel your activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca service through the end of your monthly billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS OR UNWATCHED MOVIES OR TV SHOWS. To cancel, go to the “Login/Your Account” page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. 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, click “View billing details” on the “Your Account” page. If you signed up for activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, and wish to cancel your activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca Subscription at any time, including during your free trial, you may need to do so through such third party, including by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from, the activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca service through that third party. You may also find billing information about your activevegetarian.com or plantbasedacademy.ca membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.
