You will not receive a notice from us that your subscription period has ended or that your next paying subscription has begun.

Your membership will automatically renew for successive subscriptions, without prior notice to you, unless and until you cancel your membership, or we terminate it. You must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next period's subscription fees to your payment method.

Additional charges may include service level changes you request.

We may change the fees and charges in effect or add new fees and charges from time to time. We will inform you of any increase or addition to existing fees and we may offer you a grace period in which your fees will not increase for a certain period of time. If you do not accept the increase or addition to the existing fees, you may elect to terminate your account during the then current billing period and you shall not be liable for such fee increase after the applicable billing period; however, any later renewal of service will be subject to the increased fee structure. If your credit or debit card reaches its expiration date, your continued use of the Service constitutes your authorization for us to continue billing you, and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

If you change your service level (downgrade it), you may cause the loss of Content or features for your account. ChromaChecker does not accept any liability for such loss. You may cancel your subscription to the Service at any time, and cancellation will be effective immediately. We don’t provide credits or refunds for any partial subscription periods or any feature that you have paid for but not used.
