ACCESS TO WEBSITE CONTENT Access to subscriber-only content of the Website is provided to users of the Website who register as Subscribers and who have an active Subscription. Specifically, in consideration of Subscriber’s completed automated recurring payment to Provider according to the terms of the subscription plan elected by Subscriber during their new account registration process or a subscription plan subsequently elected by Subscriber from their existing Website account (“Subscription Plan”) Subscriber will be permitted access to that content of the Website restricted to subscribers.
AUTOMATIC CREDIT/DEBIT CARD / PAYPAL PAYMENT METHOD AGREEMENT By accepting this Agreement, Subscriber authorizes an automatic recurring payment to Provider from the Subscriber’s credit, debit, bank card or PayPal account (the “Automatic Recurring Payment Method”). AUTOMATIC RECURRING PAYMENT FAILURE If a payment demand on Subscriber’s Automatic Recurring Payment Method is declined, Subscriber’s Subscription will be suspended and access to Website’s subscriber-only content will be denied. In the event of such a decline, Subscriber gives Provider the authority to make corrections to any information and resubmit the demand. Provider may permanently restrict Subscriber’s ability to use a certain payment method if that payment method fails multiple times. In the event that payment is not received and Subscriber does not pay the amount due in full, Subscriber’s subscription will be terminated and access to Website’s subscriber-only content will be denied.
CANCELLATION OF AUTOMATIC RECURRING PAYMENT METHOD Subscriber understands that any Automatic Recurring Payment Method authorization shall remain in effect until withdrawn by Subscriber or cancelled by Provider. Refunds are not given for the balance of the current subscription period when subscriptions are cancelled. The Subscription Plan will remain in effect until Subscriber gives notice of cancellation to Provider and Provider has successfully relayed such notice to their payment provider. Please allow Provider up to 10 calendar days for processing cancellation notices. This authorization will stay in effect until your Subscription Plan is paid in full. Subscribers may perform the following steps to cancel their Subscription: 1. Visit https://okobserver.org 2. Log-in using Subscriber’s Username and Password 3. Click on “Subscription” from the Login sidebar menu 4. Click on the “Cancel Subscription” button in the “Your Subscription” box 5. Confirm that the cancellation request was successfully accepted and executed by Provider by reading the resulting message displayed at the top of the “Your Subscription” box. Once these steps are completed, Subscriber will be sent written confirmation via e-mail within 48 hours to their email address specified in Subscriber’s Website account. If such confirmation email is not received within this timeframe, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating this situation and requesting assistance. The cancellation process must be completed within 10 business days of Subscriber’s scheduled Subscription billing date to ensure Subscriber is not charged for the next billing period. Subscribers may determine the date of their next scheduled billing of their Automatic Recurring Payment Method by performing the following steps: 1. Visit https://okobserver.org 2. Log-in using Subscriber’s Username and Password 3. Click on “Subscription” from the Login sidebar menu 4. Observe the form field titled “Next billing” which specifies the date of the next scheduled billing attempt by Provider. Subscriber will have access to Website’s subscription-only content for the remainder of the currently paid billing period. In the event that the cancellation request is not completed (and notification has not been received at email@example.com) before Subscriber’s next recurring payment is processed, Subscriber’s account will be charged for the following billing period. If Subscriber fails to contact firstname.lastname@example.org regarding any problems Subscriber may experience, Provider cannot be held responsible for charges incurred.
CHANGING AUTOMATIC RECURRING PAYMENT METHOD Subscriber can not change the parameters of their Automatic Recurring Payment Method as specified in the Subscription Plan they elected.
