If you select a Service with an auto renewal feature (“Recurring Subscription”), you authorize Institute for Integrative Nutrition to maintain your account information and charge that account automatically upon the renewal of the Service you choose with no further action required by you. In the event that Institute for Integrative Nutrition is unable to charge your account as authorized by you when you enrolled in a Recurring Subscription, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, may, in its sole discretion: (i) bill you for your Service and suspend your access to the Service until payment is received, and/or (ii) seek to update your account information through third party sources (i.e., your bank or a payment processor) to continue charging your account as authorized by you.
Institute for Integrative Nutrition may change the price for Recurring Subscriptions from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for Recurring Subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use your Recurring Subscription after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by cancelling your Recurring Subscription before the price change goes into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.
Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. You may cancel a Recurring Subscription at any time, but if you cancel your subscription before the end of the current subscription period, we will not refund any subscription fees already paid to us. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current subscription period. .
You can cancel by going to Settings in your account, selecting Cancel under the Subscription box and then following the onscreen instructions to continue and cancel subscription.

If you are dissatisfied with the Service within the 30-day “free trial”, you can cancel by going to Settings in your account, selecting Cancel under the Subscription box and then following the onscreen instructions to continue and cancel subscription. If you cancel your account after your card is charged for the first period of your subscription, refunds will not be issued.
