Section 6 Payment

(a) Charges . If there is a charge associated with a Service, you agree to pay that charge. The price stated for the Service excludes all applicable taxes and currency exchange settlements, unless stated otherwise. Even if the Service itself is free, you may still incur charges incidental to using the Service. For example, these may include charges for Internet access, text messaging, or other data transmission. You are solely responsible for paying such taxes or other charges. Microsoft may suspend or cancel the Service if Microsoft does not receive an on time, full payment from you.

(b) Your Billing Account . To pay the charges for a Service, you need to create a billing account through ourBilling and Account Management website ( https://billing.microsoft.com) and provide a payment method. The information you provide for your billing account must be kept current at all times. You can access and change your billing account information and payment method at the same website ( https://billing.microsoft.com) . Changes made to your payment method will not affect charges Microsoft posts to your billing account before Microsoft could reasonably act on your request.

(c) Billing . By providing Microsoft with a payment method, you: (a) represent that you are authorized to use the payment method that you provided; (b) authorize Microsoft to charge you for the Service using your payment method; and (c) authorize Microsoft to charge you for any paid feature of the Service that you choose to sign up for or use while this contract is in force.

Microsoft may charge you up to the amount you've approved, and Microsoft will notify you in advance of the difference for recurring subscription Services. Microsoft may bill you at the same time for more than one of your prior billing periods.

(d) Automatic Renewal . Once Microsoft has informed you that the Service will be automatically renewed, Microsoft may automatically renew your Service (provided that automatic renewals are allowed in your country). Microsoft will charge you the then current price for the renewal term. Microsoft will inform you by email before renewing your Service. Microsoft will also remind you that Microsoft will bill your chosen payment method for the Service renewal. Microsoft will also provide you with instructions on how you may cancel the Service. You must cancel the Service before the renewal date to avoid being billed for the renewal.

(e) Online statement and errors . Microsoft will provide you with an online billing statement on the Billing and Account Management website (https://billing.microsoft.com), where you can view and print your statement. If Microsoft makes an error on your bill, you must tell Microsoft within 120 days after the error first appears on your bill. Microsoft will then promptly investigate the charge. If you do not tell Microsoft within that time, you release Microsoft from all liability and claims of loss resulting from the error and Microsoft will not be required to correct the error or provide a refund. Microsoft may correct billing errors at any time.

(f) Cooling off period . When you request a Service from Microsoft, you agree that Microsoft may begin to provide the Service immediately.

(g) Trial period offers . If you are taking part in any trial period offer, you must cancel the Service by the end of the trial period to avoid incurring new charges unless Microsoft notifies you otherwise. If you do not cancel your Service at the end of the trial period, Microsoft may charge you for the Service.

(h) Price Changes . Microsoft may change the price of the Service at any time. If there is a fixed term and price for your Service offer, that price will remain in force for the term. After the term ends, Microsoft will charge you for your use of the Service at the new price. Microsoft will notify you in advance if Microsoft changes the price of the Service.

If your Service is charged on a periodic basis (for example, monthly) with no fixed term, Microsoft will notify you of any price changes at least 30 days in advance. If you do not agree to these changes, you must cancel and stop using the Service before the changes take place. If you cancel, your Service ends at the end of your current service period or, if Microsoft bills your account on a period basis, at the end of the period in which you canceled.

(i) Refund policies . Unless otherwise provided by law or by a particular Service offer, all sales are final and nonrefundable.

(j) Canceling the Service . You may cancel the Service at any time, with or without cause.
