A. Subscription; Billing.
B. Free Trials.
We may offer free trials to the Subscription Service. The duration of the free trial period will be as specified at the time you sign up for the Subscription Service. Eligibility for a free trial is determined by us at our sole discretion. Only one free trial is permitted per household, and we may use certain information (including device ID, payment method information or email address) to verify compliance with this restriction. If we determine that you do not meet the eligibility requirements, we may revoke the free trial and/or otherwise put your account on hold. At the conclusion of the free trial period, your subscription will automatically renew and you will be charged the subscription fee for your next billing cycle, unless you cancel your subscription (as instructed in the “Cancellation” section below) before the end of the free trial period. You can view the end date of your free trial period in your “Account” page (vevo.xite.com/account).
If you sign up for a subscription service offered by us, you must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the subscription fees for the next billing cycle to the payment method you provided. You may cancel your subscription at any time and you will continue to have access to the Subscription Service until the end of your billing period, at which time your account will automatically close. You may cancel by following the instructions for cancellation on your "Account" page (vevo.xite.com/account).
