Subscription fees will be billed as set forth below.
We currently accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners, and JCB. We may be unable to accept credit cards issued by banks outside of the United States. Unless we state in writing otherwise, all fees and charges are nonrefundable. We may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance. All transactions conducted via the Website will include all sales tax based on the bill-to address and the sales tax rate in effect at the time your transaction is completed. We will only charge tax in states where digital goods are taxable.
If you want to use a different credit card or there is a change in credit card validity or expiration date, or if you believe someone has accessed Digital Content using your TIC User Account without your authorization, you must notify us immediately using our contact information provided on the Website.
Subscriptions. Unless otherwise expressly notified to you, if you have a subscription for the purchase of any Digital Content, you are responsible for paying all periodic subscription fees. If you purchase a subscription to any Digital Content through the Website, by consenting to this Agreement and agreeing to be bound by the terms herein, you hereby authorize TIC to charge your credit card (or other approved facility) linked to your TIC User Account for each periodic subscription fee, including subscription fees for renewal terms.

You may not assign or transfer your subscription to any other person or entity. You must be at least 18 years old (or have the permission of a credit card holder who is) to order subscriptions online.
The billing period ends at the end of each subscription term. If TIC does not receive payment from the credit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by TIC. Your card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated card in connection with the purchase of Digital Content, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. YOU, AND NOT TIC, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY THAT WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
You may terminate your subscription to Digital Content at any time. When you terminate a subscription to any type of Digital Content, such subscription will not be automatically renewed and your access to the applicable Digital Content will be terminated on the expiration date. If you terminate your subscription and you have paid in advance for the receipt of Digital Content, subject to the terms of this Agreement and your compliance therewith, you will continue to have access to such Digital Content through the expiration date of your subscription, but you will not be entitled to any refund of fees paid in advance for your subscription.
