For example, if you purchase your STAT Eye Consult on April 5, your membership will automatically renew on May 5 (as further explained in “Billing Cycles,” below). You must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (which we may update from time to time, “Payment Method”) to use STAT Eye Consult. We will automatically bill the monthly membership fee to your Payment Method each month until your subscription is cancelled or terminated.
b) Membership Plans. We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships, with differing conditions and limitations. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered membership plans.

For example, if you started your STAT Eye Consult membership or became a paying member on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your Payment Method would be billed on that date. Your renewal date may change due to changes in your membership.
c) Refunds.

Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, any price changes to your membership will take effect on your next billing cycle upon notice communicated through a posting on the STAT Eye Consult website or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time, such as email.
e) Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by logging online and editing it under "My Profile". If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, “Cancellation” below), you nonetheless will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated, including in the event you attempt to create a new account. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. If we cannot charge your account, we reserve the right, but are not obligated, to terminate your access to our Site or any portion thereof.
f) Cancellation of Membership. You may terminate your monthly subscription at any time with 3 days’ notice by going to STAT Eye Consult website and canceling. Following any cancellation you will continue to have access to your subscription through the end of your current prepaid billing period, unless you cancel and receive a refund, in which case your access will be terminated immediately. Note that if you do terminate your membership, there is a reactivation fee if you want to return to the STAT Eye Consult in future months.
g) Hold. In lieu of cancellation, we also may give you the option to put your membership on hold at any time, subject to a reduced fee per Membership Cycle. Please request a hold at least 3 days prior to your next billing date if you want to put your membership on hold. (I.e., if your next billing date is September 30th, notify STAT Eye Consult that you want to put your membership on hold by September 27th.) Even though your membership will be on hold, your account is left active and functioning and you will search the case archive and post to the forum with your STAT Eye Consult membership. There is currently no reactivation fee to return to a full Eligible STAT Eye Consult. If your membership is on hold and you wish to cancel your membership, you may cancel at any time with 3 days’ notice via your STAT Eye Consult website. Holds will be charged a reduced rate of $50.00 per month with is subject to change at our sole discretion.
j) Trials. From time to time we may offer a trial membership that includes standard access to the STAT Eye Consult platform during the trial period. Unless otherwise communicated, a trial begins at the moment of sign up and ends at 11:59pm ET on the last day of the trial (for a one-week trial, this would be the same weekday of following week). Each trial membership automatically will convert to a regular monthly membership and price unless canceled by 12pm ET on the day before the last day of trial. Customers that cancel and do not convert to a regular membership may not attend classes taking place after the end of the trial membership period (even if booking occurred before the end of the applicable trial period). Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, trial memberships are only available to new customers that have never had a STAT Eye Consult account before, are not transferable, may not be combined with other offers or redeemed for cash and are void where prohibited.
