i. Modification/Suspension/Discontinuation: We regularly make changes to the Services. The Content, as well the websites through which the Content and Services are made available, may change from time to time. The Jazz Line reserves the right to change, replace, or remove any Content or the Services, including specific titles and channels, and to otherwise make changes in how we operate the Services. Additionally, you understand that our partners and channels may choose to place restrictions on Content on the Services, such as making it available only to users accessing the Services from certain countries.
While we do not expect to do so, we may alter, temporarily suspend, or permanently discontinue the Services (including access to the Content) at any time, and without advance notice to any users. We may occasionally experiment with or otherwise alter certain features or other elements of the Services, including user interfaces, pricing, advertisements, and how the website operates. You acknowledge that The Jazz Line may do so in our sole discretion at any time without notice. You also agree that The Jazz Line will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services. If you are a Premium Subscriber, and The Jazz Line suspends or discontinues your subscription, The Jazz Line may, in its sole discretion, provide you with a prorated credit, refund, or other consideration in accordance with our Subscription and Billing Terms below. However, if The Jazz Line terminates your account, or suspends or discontinues your access to Services, due to your violation of these Terms you will not be eligible for any such credit, refund, or other consideration of any kind.
2. Premium Subscriptions and Billing
While The Jazz Line does offer a free (Basic) subscription, we also offer a Premium Subscription which provides registered users with access to special features within the Services, such as the removal of all advertising on the Services, and access to High-Definition videos. The offerings and features available with Basic subscribers will differ from those available to Premium Subscribers. For clarification, a "day" for purposes of these Terms begins at 12:00 a.m. Central Time and ends at 11:59 p.m. Central Time of that same calendar day.
a. Billing: By providing a credit card, debit card, or other payment method accepted by The Jazz Line ("Payment Method") for your subscription and clicking ‘Sign Up’, you are explicitly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a monthly subscription fee on a recurring basis, as well as any applicable taxes in connection with your use of your subscription, to the Payment Method you provided. If you wish to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up to use during registration, you can change this at any time from your ‘My Account’ page. When you provide a Payment Method to access a subscription, The Jazz Line and our partners will attempt to verify the information you entered and then attempt to charge your Payment Method immediately if you pass the initial verification check.
As used in these Terms, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of your subscription, and approximately monthly thereafter unless and until you cancel your subscription or the account, premium subscription, or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. To see the commencement date for your next renewal period, log in on the JazzLine.com website and go to your ‘My Account’ page.If your Payment Method expires and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your Premium subscription, your subscription will be automatically reverted to a free (Basic) subscription.
We automatically bill your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to commencement of your subscription. The interval of time between each payment due date shall be approximately monthly. In the event your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you have a monthly subscription and became a paying subscriber on January 31, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28. You acknowledge that the timing of when you are billed and the amount billed each month may vary, for reasons including but not limited to promotional offers, credits applied, changes in your subscription, changes in your Payment Method, and changes in applicable taxes, and you agree that you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts.
The Jazz Line reserves the right to change the terms of your subscription, including price, from time to time, effective as of the beginning of your next Billing Period following the date of the change. If The Jazz Line changes the subscription fee or other charges for your subscription, we will give you advance notice of these changes. However, we will not be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes.
In the rare event of a special circumstance (for example, you are a Premium subscriber and the Services become unavailable for multiple days as a result of technical difficulties), we may provide credits to affected subscribers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at The Jazz Line’s sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle anyone to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances.
b. Ongoing Subscription and Cancellation: Your subscription will continue in effect on a recurring basis every month unless and until you cancel your subscription or the account, premium subscription, or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. You must cancel your subscription before your next renewal date in order to avoid the next billing. We will bill the monthly subscription fee plus any applicable taxes to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). If you cancel your subscription, your account will be downgraded to a free Basic subscription and your cancellation of your Premium subscription will be effective IMMEDIATELY. You will not receive a refund for the unused period of your subscription if you choose to cancel your Premium Subscription, and forfeit any service or referral credits upon cancellation. You can cancel your subscription at any time from your ‘My Account’ page.
c. Unpaid Amounts: It is important that each subscriber honor the payment obligations to which the subscriber agreed. Accordingly, we reserve the right to retry billing your Payment Method after failed attempts (e.g., if your Payment Method is rejected by your bank or card provider). If The Jazz Line does not receive payment even after retrying your Payment Method, your Premium Subscription will be cancelled and downgraded to a free Basic subscription, and we will cease any further attempt to retry billing your Payment Method.
3. Accounts and Registration
