At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or Privatyze, Inc. cancels it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal from the Plans & Billing section of your Account page.
A valid payment method, including credit card or PayPal, is required to process the payment for your subscription.
