You may unconditionally withdraw your consent to automatic payments at any time by going to the settings on the relevant third party account, but be advised that you are still obligated to pay any outstanding amounts.
If you want to change or terminate your subscription, you will need to log in to your Third Party Store account such as Apple App Store or Google Play Store, and follow instructions to terminate or cancel your subscription, even if you have otherwise deleted your account with us or if you have deleted Langmate application from your device. DELETING YOUR ACCOUNT ON LANGMATE OR DELETING LANGMATE APPLICATION FROM YOUR DEVICE DOES NOT TERMINATE OR CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION.
Langmate will retain all funds charged to your Payment Method until you terminate or cancel your subscription on the Third Party Store account, as applicable. If you terminate or cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term, and your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires.
You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting the Third Party Store account settings. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information, terminate or cancel your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates.
The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method.
Generally, all charges for purchases are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods.
