Your subscription will renew automatically, unless Erudika terminates it or you terminate your subscription as described in Section 8. You must terminate your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term to your credit card.

Any outstanding balance becomes immediately due and payable upon termination of any the Service for any reason.

Unpaid amounts are subject to interest charge at the rate of 1.5% per month, or the highest rate permitted by law, whichever is less. You are responsible for paying all reasonable expenses and attorneys’ fees that Erudika incurs collecting late amounts.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, you waive all objections relating to charges unless submitted by email within 10 days after you have been informed about the charges.

Erudika reserves the right to change its fees and payment policies for the Service and will notify you at least 14 days before such changes become effective. Changes to the fees or payment policies will be posted on the Website.
