C2C may charge you fees for certain products or services offered for sale through our Site. Certain Site products and services are available only through the purchase of a subscription or other type of paid access. The terms for C2C's Subscription-Based Services are described in this Section 2.
Some Subscription-Based Services, at your option, will be billed once annually. In order to provide you with uninterrupted service, most of our online Subscription-Based Services, like Ad presentation, Web Hosting, or Web Development renew automatically at the end of the applicable subscription period at the rate then in effect. We alert you at the point of offer when a subscription product is offered on an auto-renewing basis. As explained below, C2C will automatically charge your payment card for an auto-renewing subscription unless you cancel your subscription by contacting C2C at info@Coast2CoastReloPartners.com Annual subscribers will be sent a reminder notice before the expiration of your subscription term that alerts you to the upcoming subscription renewal charge.
(a) You agree to pay, using a valid payment card which C2C accepts, all fees and charges, including applicable taxes, you have incurred through your account, including the monthly or annual subscription charges to access the Subscription-Based Services. C2C reserves the right to increase fees and surcharges, including fees for Subscription-Based Services, or to institute new fees at any time, upon annual renewal notification sent to you based on contact information you provide in your subscription information. If you purchase a Subscription-Based Service on an annual basis, your rate remains in effect throughout the subscription year, and is subject to increase only for subsequent subscription years.
(b) Unless you take action to cancel your auto-renewing subscription through one of the methods described below, C2C will automatically charge your payment card listed in your account to renew your Subscription-Based Services and certain Web Services available for purchase through our Site. C2C will send you a reminder about the renewal, which will contain the applicable subscription rate, to the email address provided in your account before your payment card is charged. In the event C2C cannot charge the payment card listed in your account, we reserve the right to terminate your access to the Subscription-Based Services or print subscription purchased through our Site.
(c) You may cancel your subscription and non-subscription Site services at any time subject to the following terms:
o If you purchase a one-year Subscription-Based Service, which is billed once annually at the time you subscribe, you may cancel at any time during that subscription year by contacting us at info@Coast2CoastReloPartners.com
Partial years will not be refunded. Your access to a Subscription-Based Service will terminate on the next annual anniversary of your subscription date. For example, if you subscribed on January 15 and cancel on May 10, your access will terminate on January 15 the following year.
(d) In addition to the charges set forth above, you are responsible for all charges associated with connecting to the Site, including without limitation all telephone access lines (including long-distance charges, when applicable), telephone and computer equipment and any service fees necessary to access our Site, including the Subscription-Based Services.
