Your Publicate subscription will continue month-to-month or year-to-year, (depending on whether you subscribe to a monthly or annual plan), until terminated. To access your premium subscription you must have Internet access and provide a current, valid, accepted method of payment, which you may update from time to time ("Payment Method").

The subscription fee for the Publicate service will be charged on a monthly or annual basis to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of the paying portion of your subscription. In some cases your payment date may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month.
Payment Methods. You can change your Payment Method by visiting our website and clicking on the "Your Account Settings" link. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not change your Payment Method or cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have obtained a valid Payment Method. When you update your Payment Method, you authorise us to continue charging the updated Payment Method, and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For some Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you certain fees, such as a foreign transaction fee or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method.
Cancellation. You can cancel your Publicate subscription at any time, you will continue to have access to the Publicate service through the end of your current billing period.
