4. Paid Memberships and Subscription Fees

Paid memberships give users access to additional Materials and services not available to users registered to the site for free. Access to these Materials is retained for the duration of the membership. At such a time that the membership expires or is terminated, access to the Materials is revoked.

Users who subscribed to the “Premium” membership service before the 7 May 2020 will also benefit from a submission review service allowing them to gain feedback on up to two User Submissions a month (see section 10 ‘User Submissions’).

Users may participate in the “Pro” or "Premium” membership services by subscribing to annual or monthly subscription fees.

- Annual subscription fees are first taken in one lump sum on the day of subscribing to the paid membership service. The paid membership service will take effect immediately, though the payment may take a few days to show on your account. Payment will then be taken automatically on the same calendar day every year thereafter, until such a time that you cancel your paid membership. In some cases, your payment date may change, for example if your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month in a subsequent year.

- Monthly subscription fees will be billed automatically on the same calendar day each month, until such time that you cancel your paid membership. In some cases, your monthly payment date may change, for example if your registration began on a day not contained in a given month. The first monthly payment will be taken on the day of subscribing to the paid membership and your membership will take effect immediately, though the payment may take a few days to appear on your account.

Briefbox Limited collects all fees through third party providers Stripe Inc. and PayPal. No refunds are offered for Pro or Premium membership fees, or any other fees collected by the Service. We reserve the right to suspend or cancel your paid membership if attempts to charge your payment method fail.


5. Paid Materials and Mentoring Services

Users can purchase paid Materials and Mentoring Services for a fixed one-off fee.

A user registered for a paid subscription may cancel their subscription for any reason during the seven (7) day period from the date the user registered for the subscription ("Effective Date"), by sending written notice to us at support@briefbox.me
