3.2 Account Security. You may not share your account with anyone else. Please keep your account password confidential and try not to use the same password on other websites.

Discount eligibility is determined at the time of the order. Discounts cannot be applied retroactively.
By signing up for and using a Subscription, you agree to waive your 14-day right of withdrawal at the moment you subscribe, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in exchange for immediate access.
If applicable to the particular Subscription, you may modify your Subscription by upgrading or downgrading your Subscription tier at any time. When you modify your Subscription, the change will become effective at the end of the then current Subscription term.
Subscription payments are non-refundable except at our sole discretion and in accordance with the rules governing each Subscription.
3.6 Notice of Auto Renewal; Effect of Cancellation.
To provide continuous service to paid subscribers who purchase a Subscription, unless otherwise stated, we automatically renew your Subscription. The renewal term is usually the same duration as the original Subscription term (for example, a one-month Subscription will renew on a monthly basis and a one-year Subscription will renew on an annual basis).
By making a Subscription purchase on the Services, you acknowledge that your account will be subject to the above-described automatic renewals. At any time, if you do not wish your account to renew automatically or if you wish to cancel your Subscription at any time, more information can be found here.
Cancellations are effective the following billing cycle. You will not receive a refund for the current billing cycle and will continue to have the same access and benefits for the remainder of the current billing period.
Please note that your paid Subscription may be interrupted because of a canceled or expired payment card or other payment method. It is your responsibility to keep your payment card or payment method details up to date to continue accessing the Services.
We may occasionally offer promotions. The specific terms of each promotion are stated at the time the promotion is offered. Each promotion may be different. Promotions cannot be combined.
You are required to provide your payment details when you sign up for a promotion. At the end of the promotion, your subscription will automatically renew at the rates displayed at the time of purchase.
We will not notify you in advance that the promotion is about to end, and we will not notify you when your promotional rate has ended. To cancel and avoid being charged, you must notify us before the promotion ends.
3.8 Payments. All payments related to your Subscription or other purchases made from your registration account must be made from a payment method on which you are the named account holder (the “Payment Method”). Unless otherwise stated, all fees due for the Subscription(s) are payable in advance and will be billed automatically to the Payment Method. You agree that we will not be liable for any loss caused by any unauthorized use of your payment card or any other method of payment by a third party in connection with the Services. Any attempt to defraud the Company using payment cards or other payment methods will result in immediate termination of your account and civil and/or criminal prosecution. In the case of suspected or fraudulent payment, including use of stolen credentials, by anyone, or any other fraudulent activity, we reserve the right to block your account. We are entitled to inform relevant authorities or entities (including credit reference agencies) of any payment fraud or other unlawful activity, and may employ collection services to recover payments.

If you are a resident of Germany: Our statutory liability for intent, gross negligence, personal injury, breaches of a guarantee (which must be expressly designated as such to be a guarantee in the legal sense) and under the German Product Liability Act is unlimited.
In cases other than those described in the previous paragraph, our liability for slight negligence is limited to breaches of essential contractual obligations. Essential contractual obligations are obligations that must be performed to achieve the purpose of a contract in the first place, and on the performance of which you may therefore generally rely. Our liability for such breaches of essential contractual obligations under this paragraph is limited to damages that are typical of the type of contract and foreseeable at the time the contract is concluded.
Arbitration shall be administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, (“JAMS”), pursuant to the most-current JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, and conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Arbitration will take place by phone or videoconference, unless an in-person hearing is requested by either party. In that case, the hearing will take place in the state where you reside. To the extent this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards of Procedural Fairness (the “Minimum Standards”), the Minimum Standards in that regard will apply.
Disputes may also be referred to another arbitration organization if you and the Company agree in writing, or to an arbitrator appointed pursuant to Section 5 of the Federal Arbitration Act.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, group, or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that notwithstanding our agreement to only arbitrate disputes as stated above, you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
If this arbitration provision is found to be null and void, then all disputes arising under the Terms between us will be subject to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Anchorage, Alaska, and you and we hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts. You and First Paw Media agree that if for any reason a dispute proceeds in court rather than arbitration: (1) you and First Paw Media waive any right to a jury trial; (2) the dispute will proceed solely on an individual, non-class, non-representative basis; and (3) neither you nor First Paw Media may be a class representative or class member or otherwise participate in any class, representative, consolidated, or private attorney general proceeding.
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or First Paw Media from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or First Paw Media from (i) applying to the appropriate court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary, or (ii) seeking relief in any state or federal court for disputes related to a violation or possible violation of First Paw Media’s intellectual property rights.
