USE AND STORAGE PRACTICES
You acknowledge that DezignArk may establish limits and general practices as it related to the use of the Service. We may also occasionally modify such limits and practices without notice to you.
SUBSCRIPTIONS, BILLING, AND CANCELLATION
A. Paid Subscriptions. Some aspects of the Sites and the services offered thereon require payment before they can be accessed or used (“Paid Subscriptions”). While Paid Subscription options will vary from time to time, they will require you to pay a recurring fee on a monthly, bi-annual, or annual basis, or at some other recurring interval disclosed to you prior to purchase (the “Subscription Period”).
Your Paid Subscription may be subject to Additional Terms presented to you prior to purchase. Importantly, Paid Subscriptions typically will not provide access to all services owned and operated by DezignArk. We may change the price of Paid Subscriptions from time to time, but we will communicate any price changes to you in advance in the manner required by applicable law (if any) and, if applicable, we will tell you how to accept those changes. Price changes for Paid Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next Subscription Period.
By registering for a Paid Subscription, you authorize us to charge your credit card or other account that you have designated, on a recurring basis, for the applicable subscription fee at the then current rate plus applicable tax. All fees are charged in British Pounds (GBP).
B. Auto-Renewal and Cancellation. The subscription fee for a Paid Subscription will be billed at the beginning of your Subscription Period or expiration of your free trial period, if any. Paid Subscriptions automatically renew until they are cancelled as described below. This means that, after your initial Subscription Period, and again after any subsequent Subscription Periods, you will automatically be billed for an additional period of the same length. For example, if you select a monthly subscription, you will be billed for an additional month at the beginning of the next month, and then for each month after that, until you cancel your subscription.
You may cancel your subscription at any time by logging into your account on the Sites or contacting us at https://dezignark.com/contact-us/. You have the right to cancel your subscription at any time. If you cancel your subscription, cancellation will be effective at the end of the current Subscription Period. After cancellation, you will have continued access to the applicable content and/or services for the remainder of the current Subscription Period, but you will not receive any refund, unless otherwise stated at the time of cancellation. Please note that the provision of a full or partial refund in one instance will not entitle you or any person to a full or partial refund under similar circumstances or for any reason not specifically agreed to by DezignArk.
C. Free Trials. On certain occasions, DezignArk may offer free trials of its paid services. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of the free trial will be stated on the relevant portion of the Sites or the marketing material describing the free trial. If you do not cancel your free trial within the trial period set out in the terms of the free trial, it will automatically convert to a Paid Subscription. This means that we will charge your payment card for the applicable subscription fee once your free trial period ends and we will continue charging you for each recurring Subscription Period until you cancel the subscription. You may cancel your subscription at anytime by logging into your account or contacting us at https://dezignark.com/contact-us/. The free trial offer terms will present the details of the free trial and the Paid Subscription that will result absent cancellation.
D. Pricing. DezignArk strives to be as accurate as possible and eliminate errors on the Site. However, there may be information on the Sites that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to product or service descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, and availability. The prices displayed on the Sites are quoted in GBP and are subject to change without notice insofar as permitted under applicable law.
