You agree to promptly update your FORA.tv account information with any new information that may affect the operation of your FORA.tv account, including but not limited to updating your account information if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date related to your Payment Method (defined below). You authorize FORA.tv, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary or appropriate to verify your FORA.tv account information. You are responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the confidentiality of your password and corresponding FORA.tv account information and you agree not to disclose your password to any third party.

- Fees and Billing
- General. Access to Memberships, Pay-Per-View Events and certain Services and Content (the “Select Service”) requires payment of various subscription, and access fees, as well as other fees such as, if applicable, shipping and handling fees, all of which may be updated from time to time (“Service Fee”). The applicable Service Fee for a Select Service will be provided at the point of purchase. For example, you may purchase monthly or annual subscriptions to certain programming or access to single conference programs or Content via streams, download, DVD purchase or other means. All Service Fees are payable in United States dollars and in accordance with the payment terms provided (such as: in advance, in arrears, auto-renew, or per usage) each time you subscribe to a Select Service.
- You agree to pay FORA.tv all Services Fees at the prices then in effect for access to and use of the Select Services by you or other persons using your FORA.tv account, and you hereby authorize FORA.tv to collect such fees, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your access to or use of the Select Services by charging the credit card you provide to us as part of your FORA.tv account information or otherwise, either directly or indirectly via a third party online payment service, such as PayPal or Apple's iTunes (“Payment Method”). Sales tax on applicable Select Services will be based on the bill-to address and the sales tax rate in effect at the time your transaction is processed.
- Unless otherwise set forth at the point of purchase or herein, all monthly Service Fees for the Select Services are billed in advance every 30 days starting from the date the you sign up for the relevant Select Service. If you select an annual subscription, then the entire Service Fee will be billed in advance on the day you sign up for the Selected Service.
- No Refunds; Credits are Discretionary. All Service Fees and charges are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used subscriptions periods or otherwise. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund or discount or other consideration to Subscribers (“Credits”). The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole discretion. The provision of Credits in one instance does not entitle you or your agents to Credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate FORA.tv to provide Credits in the future, under any circumstance.
- Auto-renewal. Select Services for which there is a subscription will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional subscription rate until you terminate your subscription. To change or cancel your subscription to a Select Service at any time, go to your "Profile" page and select “Cancel Subscription”. If you are a FORA.tv Plus or Frontrow member and you cancel your subscription, you will automatically become a FORA.tv Basic member. If you wish to cancel your membership entirely, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll confirm that we've deleted the account.
- Free Trials and Other Promotions. Free trials or other promotions (each a “Promotion”) cannot be combined with any other offer and may be subject to additional terms. You must have internet access and a valid Payment Method to redeem a Promotion. Any Promotion that provides subscriber-level access to the Select Services must be used within the time period specified in the additional Promotion terms and for any free trial you must cancel your subscription before the end of the Promotion period in order to avoid being charged the applicable subscription Service Fee.
- Too Many Sessions. Member access to FORA.tv pay-per-view content is limited to two simultaneous sessions; members cannot access pay-per-view content when concurrently logged in from more than two computing devices.
