SHIMASU INC may offer certain Users the ability to purchase Premium
Features through the Service. The categories and prices of our Premium Features are
described in the application below and are subject to change from time to time.
Subscription Services: The Premium Features may include automatically recurring payments for
periodic charges (“Subscription Service”). If you activate a Subscription Service, you
authorize SHIMASU INC to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until
cancellation of either the recurring payments or your account, all accrued sums on or before
the payment due date for the accrued sums. The “Subscription Billing Date” is the date when
you purchase your first subscription to the Subscription Service. Your account will be
charged automatically on the Subscription Billing Date all applicable fees for the next
subscription period. The subscription will continue unless and until you cancel your
subscription or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order
to avoid billing of the next periodic Subscription Fee to your account. We will bill the
periodic Subscription Fee to the payment method you provide to us during registration (or to
a different payment method if you change your payment information).
If you pay by credit or debit card, we may obtain a pre-approval from the issuer of the card
for an amount, which may be as high as the full price of your purchase. We will bill your
Payment Method at the time you purchase one of our Premium Features, or shortly thereafter.
If you cancel a transaction before completion, this pre-approval may result in those funds
not otherwise being immediately available to you. You acknowledge and agree that any credit
card and related billing and payment information that you provide during your purchase of
Premium Content may be shared with SHIMASU INC’s payment processor(s) for the sole purpose
of processing the transaction.
Availability of Premium Content: We make reasonable efforts to accurately display the
attributes of our Premium Content, including the various resources; however, the actual
performance of the resources will depend on your computer system, and we cannot guarantee
that your computer will accurately display such content. The inclusion of any particular
Premium Content or service on our Service at a particular time does not imply or warrant
that these content or services will be available at any time.
By purchasing Premium Content, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically any
important information regarding your purchases or your account and as set forth in our
sending them to an email address or street address that you previously provided to us. We
may update these Payments Terms at any time without notice as we deem necessary to the full
extent permitted by law. The Payments Terms in place at the time you confirm a transaction
will govern that transaction.
You may cancel your Subscription at any time. To cancel, you can either
(i) email us at (EMAIL) and follow instructions, if any, we provide to you in response to
your cancellation request, or (ii) initiate a cancellation through your account settings
within the Services. You will be responsible for all Subscription fees incurred for the
then-current Subscription period. If you cancel, your cancellation will be effective
immediately, but SHIMASU INC will allow you to access the Subscription features until the
most recently paid-up Subscription period ends, and then we will terminate your access.
Canceling your Subscription won’t cancel your Account. See the Termination and Account
Cancellation section below for information on canceling your Account.
