We will begin billing your Payment Method for subscription fees at the end of the free trial period of your subscription and your subscription will automatically renew unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the specific details of your subscription, visit the My Account page. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods as soon as you register. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a recurring basis for your subscription fee until you cancel. Should you cancel your subscription before the end of your free trial period, you may forego the remainder of such free trial period.
If you want to cancel your subscription, switch to a different Payment Method or if there is a change in your Payment Method details, or if you believe someone has accessed Buoyweather Premium using your user name and password without your authorization, please contact Buoyweather immediately at email@example.com.
