If the Parties wish to continue their relationship, they shall execute a separate agreement.
In consideration of Your access to the Membership, You agree to pay the annual, bi-annual or monthly fees listed on the checkout page for the Membership you choose.
The Company will lock in Your annual or monthly payment amount for Your future Membership payments, even if we increase our prices in the future, so long as you continue to be an active subscriber without interruption in your Membership. However, if You or we terminate Your subscription at any time and You re-subscribe at a later date, You must purchase a new subscription at the current price.
Recurring monthly payments are due and will be charged to your card on the same calendar day each month (if, for example, you sign up on April 12, your card will be charged again on May 12, June 12, and so on).
If You choose monthly payments, you agree to continue making a monthly payment until you request a cancellation according to the Cancellation Policy set forth below, or until we terminate your subscription. In the event that any payment is not made by the due date, the Company has the right to immediately suspend Your access to the Membership.
If You have chosen an annual Sisterhood subscription, the annual payment is due and Your subscription renews automatically at the end of twelve (12) months and Your debit/credit card will be charged the fee You chose at the time of purchase. Your subscription will be activated as soon as Your debit or credit card is successfully charged.
METHODS OF PAYMENT
You give us permission to automatically charge your credit or debit card for all fees and charges due and payable to the Company, without any additional authorization, for which you will receive an electronic receipt. You also agree that the Company is authorized to share any payment information and instructions required to complete the payment transactions with its third-party payment service providers (e.g., credit card transaction processing, merchant settlement, and related services).
Regarding recurring payments and outstanding invoices: If all eligible payment methods we have on file for you are declined for payment of your monthly or annual fees, you must provide a new eligible payment method promptly or your Membership access will be removed.
You agree to reimburse the Company for all collection and/or legal fees and expenses necessitated by lateness or default in payment.
Since we have a clear and explicit Refund Policy that you have agreed to prior to completing the purchase of the Membership, we do not tolerate or accept any type of chargeback threat or actual chargeback from your credit card company or payment processor. In the event that a chargeback is placed on a purchase or we receive a chargeback threat during or after your purchase, we reserve the right to report the incident to all three credit reporting agencies or to any other entity for inclusion in any chargeback database or for listing as a delinquent account which could have a negative impact on your credit report score. The information reported will include your name, email address, order date, order amount, and billing address. Chargeback abusers wishing to be removed from the database shall make the payment for the amount of the chargeback.
If you would like to cancel Your monthly subscription, You may request to do so at any time. However, please note that in order to avoid being charged for the next month, You must notify the Company of your request to cancel at least 1 business day before your next bill date. Once We process your cancellation request, You will no longer be charged. Payments for the next billing cycle will not be refunded, so please make sure to cancel at least 1 business day prior to Your upcoming billing date.
We do not provide any refunds for monthly subscriptions.
If you would like to cancel an annual subscription, you may do so at any time. Please note, however, that you need to cancel at least 1 business day prior to your renewal date to prevent the next year’s subscription from being processed and billed.
If you request to cancel an annual subscription at least 1 business day prior to the twelfth month after purchase, we will issue a prorated refund for any full months left in the subscription. The refund rate will be calculated as the entire monthly fee (not the discounted rate) stated at the time of purchase, divided by twelve, and multiplied by the number of full months remaining in your subscription. If we cancel your subscription in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, we reserve the right to refuse to issue any refund. Should you request a cancellation, you will have until 1 business day before your cancellation date to withdraw your cancellation request.
Upon cancellation of your subscription (whether month-to-month or annual), you will no longer have access to the members-only portal and will be removed from the Sisterhood Community Group prior to the last business day of the month in which your membership is active. All assets in the members-only portal are downloadable during the term of your active subscription.
