2.  Subscription Fees; Credit Card Authorizations; Cancellations.

The Subscription fee (“Subscription Fee”) for the Knives will be the monthly payment due based on the number of knives and sharpening frequency as defined on the Plans and Pricing page of our website and as set forth here in Exhibit A or your specific Subscription or sometimes defined by any discounts offered to you).  We reserve the right to adjust pricing for our service or any components thereof in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in this Subscription Agreement, any price changes to your service will take effect following advance email notice to you.

Upon Your order for your Subscription, You hereby authorize us to charge your credit card for the Subscription Fee on a RECURRING basis whereby your card will be automatically charged every month. These charges will continue on a continuous basis each month until the subscription is cancelled by You.  We will charge Your credit card the amount of the Subscription Fee immediately upon Your Subscription signup where you confirm and submit – “Check Out and Pay”.

Your Subscription may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for one month, or as otherwise specified during sign-up.  We will begin billing your credit card for the Subscription Fee at the end of the free trial period of your membership and your membership will automatically renew monthly unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period.  We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.

Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period.
