- 3.1.1. Billing of Subscriptions
When you purchase a VC+ subscription, you are subscribing to an automatically renewing subscription requiring recurring payments at the stated frequency (e.g., monthly or annually) until you cancel in the manner set forth in Section 3.4 below. You authorize us to charge your first subscription fee and any applicable taxes on or after the date you purchase your subscription. Your subscription will automatically continue at the selected interval, and you will continue to be charged at the stated price (including any applicable taxes), unless prior to the end of the current subscription period: (a) you terminate your account; (b) you cancel your subscription in accordance with Section 3.4 below; (c) we decline to renew your subscription; or (d) these Terms of Sale are otherwise properly terminated as expressly permitted herein. Further details regarding cancellation are included in Section 3.4 below. As noted below, we may change subscription terms or subscription fees at any time on a go forward basis in our sole discretion.
After you have set up an account, you can access information about your subscription period by visiting the Account area of store.visualcapitalist.com.
- 3.1.2. Changes to Subscriptions, Products, and Services
We may change subscription terms or subscription fees at any time on a go forward basis at our sole discretion. If the pricing for your subscription increases, we will notify you and provide you an opportunity to cancel or change your subscription before applying those changes to your account or charging you in connection with an automatic renewal. We may choose in our sole discretion to add, modify, or remove benefits and features from a subscription, product, or service on a temporary or permanent basis. If you do not wish to continue subscribing with the new modifications, you may cancel your subscription. Your failure to cancel or your continued use of the product or service after the changes become effective will constitute your acceptance of the changes. If you accept the new subscription, its terms and conditions will apply for that renewal and all renewals going forward.
- 3.2. Unpaid Charges
If any fee is not paid in a timely manner, or your transaction cannot be processed, we reserve the right to suspend, disable, cancel or terminate your access to the product or services or cancel your subscription.
If your credit card expires or your payment method is otherwise invalid, we do not automatically terminate your account and you will remain responsible for all charges and uncollected amounts incurred until you cancel pursuant to Section 3.4 or we, in our sole discretion, decide to terminate your account.
In addition, we reserve the right to collect from you all costs we incur in connection with the collection of unpaid amounts, including court costs, attorneys’ fees, collection agency fees and any other associated costs.
- 3.3. Promotions
We may offer promotions. The specific terms of each promotion are stated at the time the promotion is offered. Each promotion may be different. Promotions cannot be combined.
We may offer promotional trial subscriptions to allow access to the products or services on a trial basis or at a promotional rate.
If your subscription includes a free trial, you will not be charged the applicable fee during your free trial. To obtain the free trial, you are required to provide your payment details when you sign up in order to ensure uninterrupted access and continued use after the expiration of the free trial. Upon completion of your free trial, your subscription will automatically convert into a paid subscription and your payment method will be charged the applicable fee unless you have canceled your subscription in accordance with Section 3.4. You may cancel your subscription during your free trial to avoid being charged as described below; such cancellation will be effective immediately.
If your subscription includes a promotional rate, you will be charged the promotional rate for the relevant number of subscription periods and upon completion of that period, your subscription will continue to automatically renew at the full rate. To avoid being charged the full rate, you must cancel in accordance with Section 3.4 before the promotional period ends.
You may only be permitted to use one free trial or promotional rate offer. If your subscription is ever canceled or terminated for any reason and you purchase an additional subscription, you may not be eligible for a free trial or another promotional rate offer.
Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price drop or promotional offering.
- 3.4. Cancellation and Refunds of Subscriptions
When you cancel a subscription, you cancel only future charges associated with your subscription. You may initiate your cancellation at any time, but the cancellation will become effective at the end of your current billing period.
In order to avoid future charges, you must cancel your subscription prior to the end of your current subscription period (which you can find in the Account area of https://store.visualcapitalist.com/my-account/). If you cancel prior to the deadline, you will not be charged or you will be eligible to receive a refund for additional charges. For subscriptions that are canceled within a free trial period, your cancellation will become effective immediately; for all other subscriptions your cancellation will become effective at the end of your current subscription period, and you will continue to have access to your subscription for the remainder of the subscription period.
Subscribers are given various cancellation options. These methods of cancellation are subject to change.

EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE STATED IN THESE TERMS OF SALE OR AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEE IS NONREFUNDABLE.

If we cancel your subscription, we may give you a pro-rated refund based on the amount of time remaining that you cannot use. However, we will not be obligated to grant you a refund if we terminate your subscription because we determine, in our sole discretion, that your actions or your use of the products or services violate these Terms of Sale or our Terms of Service, any applicable law, or has harmed the service, product, or another user. If any or all of our digital products are temporarily unavailable, you will not receive a refund. We reserve the right to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion.
