Premium members who sign up for automatic renewal will automatically be billed every billing period until cancelled. Premium Members who sign up for manual renewal must manually pay each billing period. Any new member purchasing Premium Membership is given a seven (7) day money back guarantee from the time purchased for the full price of the Premium Membership purchased. Once a refund is given to a member, that member may not, at any time, request reimbursement upon subsequent signups.
