The free trial lasts for the amount of time specified during sign-up and you will be notified during sign-up whether you are eligible for a free trial. Each user can benefit from a free trial once and only once.

You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment to be able to start your free trial ("Payment Method") which you may update from time to time in the section “My Account" on the service.

For non-renewable, one-time offers, the membership fee for the service is billed one time at the date of the purchase

Payment Methods: You can change your Payment Method anytime you wish by going to "My Account" section of the website.
