All fees are exclusive of applicable taxes (e.g., sales, use, or value-added tax), unless otherwise stated, and User is solely responsible for the payment of any such taxes that may be imposed on their use of the Service. Lingosnap may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes, even if it has already requested or received payment. Lingosnap reserves the right to change its prices for certain Service features and to institute new charges at any time upon notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Site. User agrees to maintain current, complete, and accurate information for their billing account. In addition, User authorizes Lingosnap to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for User's credit or debit card as provided by User's credit or debit card issuer. All fees are final and nonrefundable, including in the event any features or functions of any service that User has subscribed to are changed, modified, diminished, or removed. The User shall be responsible for any applicable foreign transaction fees charged by User's bank.

10.2. Automatic Renewal

User's subscription to the Service will continue indefinitely until canceled by the User (via the cancellation mechanisms provided on the Site or in the mobile application). After the initial subscription period and again after any subsequent subscription period, User's subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period at the price User agreed to when subscribing. User agrees that User's account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If User does not wish User's account to renew automatically, or if User wants to change User's subscription, please log in on the Site or the mobile application and cancel the subscription. If User cancels a subscription, User may use such subscription until the end of the then-current subscription term, and the subscription will not be renewed thereafter. However, User will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, User authorizes Lingosnap to charge User's credit card, debit card, or other payment method at such time and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period, including any sales or similar taxes imposed on User's subscription payments. Upon the renewal of User's subscription, if Lingosnap does not receive payment, User agrees that Lingosnap may either terminate or suspend User's subscription and continue to attempt to charge User's payment method provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, User's account will be activated, and for purposes of automatic renewal, User's new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received). If User does not terminate User's subscription and/or if User continues to use the Service, User agrees that Lingosnap is authorized to charge the payment method in User's Service account. Lingosnap may also seek payment directly from User. Charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise specified when User initially subscribes to the Service.

10.3. Refunds

Users may be entitled to a refund on their current subscription plan if the charge processed less than or equal to 3 days ago, and User hasn't used the product since the charge. If User fits the criteria, they are free to cancel the subscription and request a refund through their subscription settings page. Instructions can be found in our Help Article. Users may reach out to Lingosnap Support at jun@lingosnap.co if they feel their situation may qualify for an exception. Exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis after reviewing the account usage and the date of the charge. These are also one-time courtesies. Users who purchase, cancel, receive a refund (whether through a refund request on their Subscription Settings page or a one-time courtesy exception) and resubscribe at a later date will not have exceptions made for subsequent subscriptions.

10.4. Promotions
