These Subscription Terms (the “Terms”) apply to your purchase and use of any paid Sequestrum subscription services, including access to publications and submission review (collectively, the “Services”).
By purchasing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not accept these Terms, do not subscribe, access, or use our Services.
Services include access to certain publications and certain submission review (“Subscriptions”). Please see the product web page for your specific Services for more information. We may make changes to, suspend, or discontinue Services at any time for any reason, and we have the sole discretion to determine which portions of the Services require payment.
Automatically Renewing Subscriptions. Your Subscription term may vary, for example, with monthly, quarterly or annual automatic renewal terms (a “Subscription Term”), as described in the course of your transaction. Your Subscription will automatically renew for additional Subscription Terms as long as your Subscription continues, until you cancel it or we suspend or stop providing the Subscription in accordance with these Terms. Unless otherwise indicated by us, you will be charged prior to, or at the beginning of, each renewal term. The renewal will occur at the price then in effect for the Service.
Subscription Cancellation. You may cancel your Subscription at any time. Your cancellation will take effect at the end of the current Subscription Term.
In the event you cancel your Subscription, note that we may still send you promotional communications about Sequestrum, unless you opt out of receiving those communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in our communications.
No Refunds on Subscriptions. When you cancel a Subscription, you cancel only future charges for your Subscription. You will not receive a refund for the current Subscription Term you paid for, but you will continue to have full access to that Subscription until the end of that current Subscription Term. At any time for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration (“credits”) to some or all of our users. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future.
Free Trials. From time to time, we may offer free trials of certain Subscriptions for specified periods of time without payment. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of your free trial will be provided in the marketing materials describing the particular trial. Once your free trial ends, we (or our third-party payment processor) will begin billing your designated payment method on a recurring basis for your Subscription (plus any applicable taxes and other charges) for as long as your Subscription continues, unless you cancel your Subscription prior to the end of your free trial. Instructions for canceling your Subscription are described in the sections above. To avoid any charges, you must cancel your Subscription before the end of your free trial period. Before charging you at the end of the your free trial period, we will notify you of the applicable fees.
Price Changes. We reserve the right to adjust pricing for our Subscriptions or any components thereof in any manner and at any time. Any price changes will take effect following notice to you.
- PAYMENT AND BILLING
You authorize Sequestrum to charge your chosen payment method for the Subscription. By providing a payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your purchase (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your Subscription may be suspended or canceled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in relation to the payment method you select in order to proceed with your use of the Service.
Please note that if you accept a promotional offer or make changes to your Services, the amount billed may vary. It may also fluctuate due to changes in applicable taxes or currency exchange rates. You authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the corresponding amount.
- REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, AND COVENANTS
Any Services are personal to you and may not be used by any other person. You will not allow anyone else to use your Services, and you will not transfer any Subscription or disclose your password to any other person. You will report to Sequestrum any unauthorized or prohibited use of your Services.
