Membership Subscription and Renewal

In these terms, “subscription” means a right to access the restricted areas of our website described in this Section, and “subscriber” means a person who has such a right by virtue of this Section.

We reserve the right to restrict access to other areas of our website, or indeed our whole website, at our discretion. You may become a subscriber by: visiting the membership page and choosing to access a paid membership subscription.

We will not file a copy of these Terms and Conditions of Use specifically in relation to each subscriber and, if we update these terms of use, the version to which you originally agreed will no longer be available on our website.  For this reason, we recommend that subscribers print and file a copy of these terms of use for future reference.

You must pay to us the subscription charges in respect of the first and any subsequent period of your subscription in advance, in cleared funds, in accordance with the instructions on our website. We may vary subscription charges from time to time by posting new charges on our website.  However, such variations will not affect subscriptions that have already been paid for. Your subscription will be activated automatically following receipt of your subscription charges in cleared funds.  Depending on your chosen plan, your subscription will continue for either one month or one year (the Billing Period), subject to early termination in accordance with these terms of use.

In common with other online services, your subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of the Billing Period. This renewal will be taken from your method of payment either one year or one month from the original date of purchase, depending on the plan signed up to, and continue every year or month from then on until cancelled by the customer.

If the customer wishes to cancel then they will need to do this at any time before the end of their Billing Period via the member profile area. They will be able to continue to access member resources until the end of the subscription period.

Though the customer can cancel at any time, they must cancel before the renewal goes through. We cannot refund your subscription once it has been paid, other than the first 30 days of your purchase described below in the Money Back Guarantee section. Company Expert membership involves a recurring subscription payment for access to a secure membership area within which the client can download the premium member content.

Users are required to have a subscription to access and download some of our content.  Subscriptions renew automatically and have either a month-to-month or annual term.  By signing up for a membership subscription, you authorize Company Expert to charge your credit card each period for the plan you are subscribed to.  Company Expert will send you a receipt after each successful transaction or a decline notice with a link to update your billing information.

Any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, will result in the new rate being charged at the next billing cycle. There will be no prorating for downgrades in between billing cycles.

All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities

Money-Back Guarantee

Within the first 30 calendar days of your product purchase, trial, or subscription we will provide you a full refund if you are unsatisfied with the service

Governing Law

Any claim relating to the Company’s website shall be governed by the laws of the State of South Carolina without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
