Availability, Errors and Inaccuracies
We are constantly updating product and service offerings on the Service. We may experience delays in updating information on the Service and in our advertising on other web sites.

Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription(s)”). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (“Billing Cycle”). Billing cycles are set on a monthly basis.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or VOTW cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting the VOTW customer support team.
A valid payment method, including credit card, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide VOTW with accurate and complete billing information including full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize VOTW to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, VOTW will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice, or your subscription will be terminated.
VOTW, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees for the Subscriptions. However, current users will not be affected by price increases. Once a user signs up, he or she will be billed the same price at sign up for all billing cycles.
If a user cancels his or her subscription and chooses to start a new subscription in the future, the user must join at the going rate at the time of rejoining. The user cannot rejoin at the original rate of first purchase.
No refunds are available for products or services; refund requests will not be granted.
