Auto billing; Subscription Fees; Free Trial Terms. The Service is a paid, auto-renewing subscription service. If you purchase a subscription (the "Subscription"), you are agreeing to automatic (recurring) billing at the then-current rate, and agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith. Your Subscription, and monthly billing of your account, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you.
Your Daily Spot membership begins after you submit your personal and payment information and subscribe. You will begin to be billed automatically on the same day of the following month until you cancel your Subscription. Once we begin to bill you, cancellations take effect starting at the end of your current billing period, meaning there are no partial month refunds or credits.
Free Trial. Daily Spot may, in its discretion and from time-to-time, offer a free trial of the Subscription. In such a case, you will be required to enter your credit card information but it will not be charged until the free trial period has expired. Upon the expiration of the trial period, your credit card will be automatically charged the then-current rate for the Subscription unless you cancel your Member account prior to the end of the free trial period.
HOW TO CANCEL
If you do not wish for your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription (including any free trial), you must cancel by accessing https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202039 from your phone or mobile device and following the instructions. Your cancellation will take effect starting during your next billing period.
If you have a monthly subscription that began on the first of the month and you cancel mid-month, your cancellation will take effect as of the beginning of the following month. Sorry-- there are no refunds on Daily Spot subscriptions for billing periods that have already lapsed.
Authorization. When you sign up for our Service and provide a payment method to Daily Spot, you are granting your express consent and are expressly authorizing us (and our designated payment processor) to automatically charge you each month for the Service. If you sign up for a free trial, you are expressly authorizing us (and our designated payment processor) to charge you pursuant to this Agreement upon the expiration of the free trial period, unless you cancel before such expiration.

18. General Provisions
ARBITRATION AND GOVERNING LAW:
The exclusive means of resolving any dispute or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including any alleged breach thereof), the Service, or the Site shall be BINDING ARBITRATION administered by the American Arbitration Association. The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that you have the right to bring an individual claim against Daily Spot in a small-claims court of competent jurisdiction. But whether you choose arbitration or small-claims court, you may not under any circumstances commence or maintain against Daily Spot or its affiliates any class action, class arbitration, or other representative action or proceeding.
By using the Site or the Service in any manner, you agree to the above arbitration agreement. In doing so, YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend any claims between you and Daily Spot or its affiliates (except for matters that may be taken to small-claims court). YOU ALSO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. You are entitled to a fair hearing before the arbitrator. The arbitrator can grant any relief that a court can, but you should note that arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement, including any proceeding to confirm, modify, or vacate an arbitration award, may be commenced in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event that this arbitration agreement is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against Daily Spot (except for small-claims court actions) may be commenced only in the federal or state courts located in Cook County, Illinois. You hereby irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes and you irrevocably waive any right to a trial by jury.
This Agreement, and any dispute between you and Daily Spot, shall be governed by the laws of the state of Illinois without regard to principles of conflicts of law, provided that this arbitration agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
INTERPRETATION; SEVERABILITY; WAIVER; REMEDIES: Headings are for convenience only and shall not be used to construe the terms of this Agreement. If any term of this Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, that term will be severed from this Agreement. No failure or delay by Daily Spot in exercising any right hereunder will waive any further exercise of that right. Daily Spot's rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and not exclusive.
SUCCESSORS; ASSIGNMENT; NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES: This Agreement is binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of both parties and their respective successors, heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, and permitted assigns. You may not assign this Agreement without Daily Spot's prior written consent. No third party shall have any rights hereunder.
NOTICES: You consent to receive all communications including notices, agreements, disclosures, or other information from Daily Spot electronically. Daily Spot may provide all such communications by email or by posting them on the Daily Spot Service.
