Paying Members authorize www.hookupz.net's payment processor(s) to charge the Member's credit card (or other approved facility) for the ongoing cost of membership. Payment for the appropriate services will be made by automatic debit to the Member's credit card (or other approved facility). Certain Services are subject to subscription fees. These subscription fees are provided to you upon registration and may change from time to time. Unless otherwise indicated, subscription fees cover an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring periodic charges for subsequent periods as agreed to by you upon registration. You acknowledge that your subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. WE MAY SUBMIT THESE PREVIOUSLY AUTHORIZED RECURRING CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT ADDITIONAL AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU UNTIL YOU HAVE TERMINATED THIS AUTHORIZATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PLAN OR WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES APPLIED BEFORE WE CAN REASONABLY ACT. TO TERMINATE YOUR AUTHORIZATION OR CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT US HERE: Billing support. The Member acknowledges and agrees that the authorization to charge the Member's credit card for services shall automatically transfer to any successors or assigns of the Service for substantially similar services on the Website.

If www.hookupz.net does not receive payment from the credit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by www.hookupz.net.

YOU, AND NOT www.hookupz.net, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY AMOUNTS BILLED TO YOUR CREDIT CARD BY A THIRD PARTY WHICH WERE NOT AUTHORIZED BY YOU.
In the event of an unsuccessful recurring payment, an administrative fee of up to $5.00 may be applied in order to keep your subscription active until the full subscription fee can be processed successfully.

C) Cancellation of Your Membership.
You may terminate your membership at any time. When termination is requested via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, your credit card (or other approved facility) will not be automatically renewed and access will be terminated on the expiration date. Termination of your membership shall not relieve you of any obligations to pay accrued charges, including any prorated charges accrued for the billing cycle during which your membership is terminated. When membership is terminated, access to the Service will continue until the membership actually expires.
D) Membership Termination for Breach of Terms.
You acknowledge that www.hookupz.net, in its sole and absolute discretion, may terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service for any reason, including without limitation, if www.hookupz.net believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms. www.hookupz.net may also, in its sole and absolute discretion, at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice.
