4. Fees

You may not use any fee-based Services unless you have paid the applicable fee and have agreed to these Terms.

By using or accessing any of the Services, you are representing that you are authorized to use the credit/debit card you enter for payment.  Applicable fees for the Services may include a one-time or monthly fee, transaction fees, taxes, and any additional fees.

Some of the Services involve recurring monthly fees.  Unless you terminate your subscription for succeeding months before the end of a monthly subscription term, your subscription will renew automatically for the next month.  Your renewed subscription will have the same duration as the subscription being renewed (e.g., one month).  At the time of renewal, your credit card will be charged the then-current fees for the applicable subscription.

Your credit card will be charged for the subscription renewal on a particular day each month when it’s a monthly subscription. If you originally subscribed to Services on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, and a succeeding month has fewer than 31 days in the month payment is due, then you will be billed for that renewal on the last day of that month.

Payments must be made with VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card.  No cash, checks, or other payment form will be accepted.  You are solely responsible for paying any amounts for services billed to your credit card by a third party who had access to your card or card number, even if you did not authorize such amounts.  You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your use of the Services, including without limitation, any applicable taxes, at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred.  If Ki-Atsu Method™ does not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agent, then you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Ki-Atsu Method™.  Ki-Atsu Method™ may deactivate your Account without notice if payment is past due.  You agree to pay any outstanding balance in full for any Services within 30 days of cancellation or termination of your registration or subscription.

Prices do not include taxes unless otherwise stated.  If a transaction is exempt from tax, please contact Ki-Atsu Method™.  Transaction fees may also be applied.  Ki-Atsu Method™ reserves the right to change its fees and billing procedures at any time upon providing you notice sent to your designated email address.  If you find such a change to be unacceptable, you may terminate your subscription by clicking on the “Your Account” tab.  By continuing to use the Services after the change to fees or billing procedures is effective, you accept such change.
