When you initially purchase the Paid Services, the Fees may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described. Except as described in Section 4, all prices for Paid Services are subject to change without notice.

Payment Method

The Company may, from time to time, offer various payment methods, including without limitation payment by credit card, by debit card, by check, or by certain payment providers.

Change in Amount Authorized.
