In order to make a donation via the website, you may be asked to supply certain relevant information, including your credit or payment card number and expiration date or similar payment information, your billing address, and shipping information. You represent and warrant that you have the right to use any credit or payment card or other payment mechanism that you submit in connection with a donation and that you have all authority necessary to make a donation using the credit card or payment mechanism that you submit.

Payment and cancellation

Portions of the website or app may permit you to “Subscribe” or make other payments or donations. For subscriptions, you may provide notice of subscription cancelation at any time. Your subscription cancelation notice is effective upon the first day of the next monthly billing period, and you will continue to have access to the applicable content for the current monthly billing period. Monthly fees are paid in advance and are non-refundable. We do not provide partial refunds for portions of a month, even if you give notice of cancelation in the middle of a month. For example, if you sign up and pay for a subscription on 6/21, you will have access until 7/21 when you will be billed again unless you have cancelled. As such, if you cancel on 6/22, you will not be charged again but will have access for that entire period you paid for. If you cancel on 7/22, you would have been charged the day before, but again will have access until 8/21. No refunds are available in these or any other situation.
