7. SUBSCRIPTION, FREE TRIALS, BILLING AND CANCELLATION
i. Ongoing Membership Your Strive membership will be based on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, or other designated period (a “Period”) unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must have Internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”) to use the Services. All memberships must be pre-paid with the amount due for the entire applicable Period. We will bill the membership fee to your Payment Method on the first day of each new Period for an amount covering the entire Period. In respect of rolling membership or subscription offerings, you must cancel your membership before it automatically renews at the end of each Period in order to avoid billing of the next Period’s membership fees to your Payment Method. Your membership can be cancelled at any time prior to the beginning of the next Period. As regards to subscriptions based on a longer period than a three (3) months, we will remind you of the renewal at least thirty (30) days in advance by sending you an e-mail. Some Strive memberships may cover a finite, fixed Period (a “Fixed Period Membership”) which will not automatically renew (such as, for example, a membership for the duration of a league). Such Fixed Period Memberships may be made available for a one-off, fixed membership fee and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, no discount or refund will be available if you purchase such Fixed Period Membership at any point after such fixed Period has commenced. The pricing for subscriptions or memberships includes VAT and/or other sales taxes. Where applicable, such taxes will be collected by the party with whom you transact for the Services, which may be IMG or a third party.
B. Free Trials Your Strive membership may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership typically lasts for seven (7) days, or as otherwise specified during sign-up. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply. Free trials are for new and certain former members only. IMG reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility. We will begin billing your Payment Method for membership fees for the Period at the end of the free trial period of your membership and your membership will automatically renew on the first day of each new Period unless your membership is a Fixed Period Membership or you cancel your membership prior to the beginning of the new Period. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one Period of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.
Visit the “Your Account” page on the Strive Site to find cancellation instructions. We will continue to bill your Payment Method at the beginning of each new Period for your membership fee until you cancel.
C. Billing and Cancellation
i. Recurring Billing By starting your Strive membership and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a membership fee at the beginning of each Period or the date of sign-up to the Fixed Period Membership (as applicable) for the current rate of the entire Period, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Services, such as taxes or possible transaction fees, to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each period may vary from Period to Period for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, including gift card redemption and promotional code redemption, increased subscription fees or pricing, and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed each Period in one or more charges.
v. Payment Methods You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting the “Your Account” page. 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. We may update your Payment Method with information provided by the applicable payment service provider, and you authorize us to continue to charge the membership fee to the updated Payment Method. 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.
vii. Cancellation Unless your membership is a Fixed Period Membership, you may also cancel your Strive membership at any time following the expiry of the period referred to in section vi, above, and you will continue to have access to the Services through the end of your applicable billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL- MEMBERSHIP PERIODS OR UNWATCHED CONTENT. To cancel your rolling membership, go to the “Your Account” page on the Strive Site. If you cancel your rolling membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing Period. If you signed up for Strive using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, and wish to cancel your Strive membership 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 Services through that third party. You may also find billing information about your Strive membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.
