Fees are not refundable except in the case where an explicit initial guarantee was provided. If a monthly subscription service has been ordered, fees are automatically renewed each calendar month on the monthly anniversary of the initial subscription, for a similar period of time, unless written notice is received from the Subscriber five (5) business days before renewal. Unless and until this agreement is cancelled in accordance with the terms herein, the Subscriber hereby authorizes EBS to charge Subscriber’s chosen payment method to pay for the ongoing cost of subscription. Subscriber hereby further authorizes EBS to charge subscriber’s chosen payment method for any and all additional purchases of services provided by the site. If the Subscribers credit card is declined by their card provider, access to the Site and ABCC services or Newsletter delivery will automatically be suspended until payment is made. From time to time EBS may choose to waive fees as a part of a promotion. Where this is done no fee will be payable provided the conditions in the promotion have been met by the Subscriber. If a purchase is made outside a promotional period, the standard price will be applied if the standard price service is clearly marked and the purchaser does not qualify for the promotion.
