1. Free Trial
From time to time, we may offer you free trials of our 23andMe+ membership services. Unless you cancel your 23andMe+ membership at the end of your free trial, you will automatically become a paying user for the respective service. The payment method that you provided will automatically be charged the current 23andMe+ membership fee either monthly, quarterly, biannual or annually (depending on your 23andMe+ membership), unless you cancel before the next billing cycle. If you wish to cancel your 23andMe+ membership after the end of your free trial period or at any time during your 23andMe+ membership, you may do so by logging into your account from within your 23andMe Account Settings and following the cancellation instructions at least one day before the next billing cycle.
UNLESS YOU NOTIFY US BEFORE A CHARGE THAT YOU WANT TO CANCEL OR DO NOT WANT TO AUTO RENEW, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR MEMBERSHIP WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONTINUE AND YOU AUTHORIZE US (WITHOUT NOTICE TO YOU, UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW) TO COLLECT THE THEN-APPLICABLE MEMBERSHIP FEE AND ANY TAXES, USING ANY PAYMENT METHOD WE HAVE ON RECORD FOR YOU.
Plans and Pricing. Fees for 23andMe+ membership services will be stated at the time of your purchase or sign-up, as applicable. We reserve the right to change our 23andMe+ membership plans or adjust pricing for our 23andMe+ membership services in any manner and at any time as we may determine in our sole and absolute discretion. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in these Membership Terms, any price changes or changes to your 23andMe+ membership plan will take effect following notice to you and would apply prospectively on your next renewal payment.
Payment Method. To use the 23andMe+ membership services you must provide a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time and which may include payment your account with a third party. You authorize 23andMe to charge any payment method associated with your account for payment of your 23andMe+ membership services. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the 23andMe+ membership services until we have successfully charged a valid payment method. For some payment methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, including processing fees. Check with your payment method service provider for details. 23andMe is not responsible for those fees.
Cancellation; Effect of Cancellation. You can cancel your 23andMe+ membership services at any time from within your 23andMe Account Settings. Upon the earlier of the (i) end of the current 23andMe+ membership period following your cancellation of the 23andMe+ membership services, or (ii) closure of your 23andMe account, you will no longer have access to the 23andMe+ membership services content, including any genetic reports provided as part of the 23andMe+ membership services.
No Refunds. Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used 23andMe+ membership periods. If, however, you cancel your 23andMe+ membership services, you will continue to have access to your 23andMe+ membership services the end of the applicable 23andMe+ membership period.
Term. These Membership Terms will continue to apply until terminated by either you or 23andMe as set out in this Section.
Termination. 23andMe may at any time, terminate its legal agreement with you (and in conjunction therewith, your password and account(s)) if: (1) you have breached any provision of these Membership Terms (or have acted in manner which shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with, the provisions of these Membership Terms); (2) 23andMe is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the 23andMe+ membership services to you is, or becomes, unlawful); (3) 23andMe is transitioning to no longer providing the 23andMe+ membership services to users in the country or state in which you reside or from which you use the 23andMe+ membership services; or (4) the provision of the 23andMe+ membership services to you by 23andMe is, in 23andMe's opinion, no longer commercially viable.
Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of the 23andMe+ membership services may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. You acknowledge and agree that 23andMe shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your access to the 23andMe+ membership services.
