2. TERM, FEES AND PAYMENTS

(a) Initial Subscription Payment

By subscribing to one of the Subscription Services, you agree that you will pay the applicable fee for the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe. Your subscription fee will automatically be charged to the credit card you designated as the credit card to be billed for your account.

(b) Automatic Subscription Renewal

One month Basic, Premium, Fine Art and Auction Advisor subscriptions will renew automatically unless you indicate that you prefer yours to expire automatically on the "Subscribe to Invaluable" page during the subscription process. All other Subscription Services will expire unless you indicate that you prefer yours to renew automatically on the "Subscribe to Invaluable" page during the subscription process. If you elect to automatically renew, your Subscription Service will continue with the same duration as the Subscription Service being renewed (e.g. one month, six months, one year, etc...). At the time of renewal, your credit card will be charged our then-current fee for your renewed Subscription Service, provided that if the fee for your renewal Subscription Service increases, we will notify you at your designated email address at least fourteen (14) days prior to renewal so that you have an opportunity to elect not to renew.

(c) Your Billing Date

Your credit card will be charged for the renewal of the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe on your billing date ("Billing Date"). The Billing Date for your renewed Subscription Service shall be on the applicable anniversary of your Activation Date (e.g. six month anniversary, one year anniversary, etc...) If, however, your Activation Date is on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, and your Billing Date does not exist because there are fewer than thirty-one (31) days in the month payment is due, your Billing Date for that particular renewal will be on the last day of the month in which your Billing Date would otherwise be.

(d) Subscription Upgrade

If you would like to upgrade to a higher level Subscription Service (from Invaluable Basic to Invaluable Premium or Professional, or from Invaluable Premium to Professional), you may upgrade the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe at any time by clicking on the My Invaluable button on the primary navigation bar of Invaluable.com and selecting the appropriate link on the Account Information foe User page. If you upgrade the Subscription Service to which you elected to subscribe during the term of such Subscription Service, and you elect to apply the value of your existing lower level subscription, then your credit card will be charged for the difference between the full amount of your new Subscription Service which shall be activated on the date of the change and the pro-rata refund for the remainder of the term of the original Subscription Service. Any time on the lower value subscription that resulted from a promotion or coupon may not be applied to a higher value subscription and is always used last (at the end of the subscription period). For example, if you purchase a 12 month Basic service subscription using a coupon that provides one month for free, then there will be no remaining value to apply towards an upgrade to Premium level subscription after 11 months.

(e) No Refunds

Except as otherwise expressly set forth above, all fees and charges, including charges for automatically renewed Subscription Services, are nonrefundable. However, you may terminate the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe at any time by clicking on the My Invaluable link on the primary navigation bar of the home page of Invaluable.com and selecting the appropriate link under My Invaluable

(f) Methods of Payment and Credit Card Terms

All payments must be made by VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card. We do not accept cash, checks or any other payment form. Your card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated card in connection with the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Subscription Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. YOU, AND NOT INVALUABLE, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY, WHICH WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU. You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe and its password (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. If Invaluable does not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Invaluable

(g) Unauthorized Charges

Unless you notify Invaluable in writing of any discrepancies or unauthorized charges within sixty (60) days after they first appear on your credit card statement, they will be deemed accepted by you for all purposes, including resolution of inquiries made by your card issuer. You release Invaluable from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any error or discrepancy that is not reported to Invaluable in writing within sixty (60) days of its first appearance on an invoice or credit card statement.

(h) Late Payments

Your account may be deactivated without notice to you if payment is past due, regardless of the dollar amount. You agree to pay any outstanding balance in full within thirty (30) days of cancellation or termination of your subscription to the applicable Subscription Service(s).

(i) Taxes

You are responsible for paying any governmental taxes imposed on your use of the Subscription Service(s), including, but not limited to, sales, use or value-added taxes. If however, you are a United Kingdom citizen using your subscription for non-commercial (personal) use, VAT will be charged and collected at a rate of 17.5% in addition to the Subscription fee.

(j) Modifications to Fees or Billing Terms

INVALUABLE RESERVES THE RIGHT, AT ANY TIME, TO CHANGE ITS SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND BILLING METHODS, INCLUDING THE ADDITION OF SUPPLEMENTAL FEES OR SEPARATE CHARGES FOR CONTENT, OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY INVALUABLE, EFFECTIVE UPON FOURTEEN (14) DAYS NOTICE TO YOU AT YOUR DESIGNATED EMAIL ADDRESS. If any such change is unacceptable to you, you may terminate the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe by clicking on the My Invaluable link on the primary navigation bar of the home page of Invaluable.com and selecting the appropriate link. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE(S) FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF A CHANGE TO FEES OR BILLING METHODS SHALL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF SUCH CHANGE.

3. TERMINATION

(a) Termination By You

You may terminate your subscription to any of the Subscription Service(s) to which you have subscribed at any time by clicking on the My Invaluable link on Invaluable.com and selecting the appropriate link. Once you have terminated the Subscription Service to which you have elected to subscribe, we will stop billing your credit card until and unless you re-subscribe to a Subscription Service. All fees paid and charges made prior to termination as provided herein are nonrefundable, including any advance charge or payment for the subscription term during which you terminate the Subscription Service to which you have subscribed. Termination of such Subscription Service shall not relieve you of any obligations to pay accrued charges.

(b) Termination By Us

You agree that Invaluable, in its sole discretion, with or without prior notice, may freeze or terminate your user ID (email address), password or use of any Subscription Service(s) (or any part thereof) for any reason, including, without limitation, if Invaluable believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Subscription Agreement or the Terms of Use Agreement. Invaluable may also in its sole discretion and at any time modify or discontinue providing any Subscription Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. Further, you agree that Invaluable shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any interference with or termination of your access to any Subscription Service. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Invaluable suspends or terminates your use of any Subscription Service(s) to which you have subscribed without cause it will (a) extend the term of such Subscription Service(s) by the amount of time such Subscription Service(s) was suspended or (b) refund a pro-rata amount based on the remainder of the term of such Subscription Service(s), as applicable.

4. CUSTOMER SERVICE

You understand and agree that Invaluable is solely responsible for all customer service, help, billing and account issues related to the Subscription Service to which you elected to subscribe.

We shall treat all of your Account Information in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

You are solely and entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, and for any and all activities that occur under your account.

Invaluable will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized use of your email address and password.

6. TECHNOLOGY LIMITATIONS

We recommend that you use Invaluable with Microsoft Windows Operating Systems and Internet Explorer Version 5.5 or later. Internet connection speed will determine how rapidly pages with photographs load to your browser.

Invaluable will make reasonable efforts to keep your account and the Subscription Service(s) operational. However, certain technical difficulties or maintenance may, from time to time, result in temporary interruptions. We will make reasonable efforts to notify you at least twenty four (24) hours in advance of any downtime that we anticipate in advance will exceed one hour.
