10. Fees and Payment.
We automatically bill your Payment Method periodically, based on the length of your subscription. For example, for a one-month subscription we bill your Payment Method each month, and for a six-month subscription we bill your Payment Method at six month intervals. We will bill you in each payment month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Subscription. However, if you change your Payment Method, this could result in changing the calendar day upon which you are billed. In the event your Subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, for a monthly subscription, if you became a paying subscriber on January 31, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28. You acknowledge that the amount billed for each payment period may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your Subscription plan, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts. If Company changes the subscription fee or other charges for Services from time to time, we will give you advance notice of these changes.
