* Billing

By using the TutorNext service, you are expressly agreeing that we are permitted to bill you a monthly subscription fee, for your use of the TutorNext service. As used in these Terms of Use, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method, including a checking account, where applicable. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of your subscription and your membership will automatically renew for successive monthly subscriptions, without prior notice to you, unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must cancel your membership before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month's subscription fees to your Payment Method ( except for Test prep and hourly packages) The billing cycle will depend on the type of plan you have selected to subscribe. For example, if you have bought a three month subscription, you will be billed at the beginning of the subscription and subsequently after that at the same billing cycle. Click on the "View Account information" link on the "My Account" page to see the commencement date for your next renewal period. We will automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership. In the event your membership began on a day not contained in a given month, we will bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying member on January 31st, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28th. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by e-mail. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by clicking on the "Edit Profile" button, available at the top of the pages of the TutorNext Web site. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date, your continued use of the service constitutes your authorization for us to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.

TutorNext retains the right to take the monthly auto renewal payment in one payment or many partial payments. The sum of all these partial payments will not be more than the stated monthly subscription fee.
