SYO reserves the right in its sole discretion to immediately suspend and/or terminate access to the Service or the Website by any user who is alleged to have infringed on the intellectual property or other proprietary rights of SYO or of a third party, or otherwise violated any intellectual property laws or regulations.
This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect for so long as it is posted on any of the Website. You may terminate your membership at any time, for any reason, by following the instructions on the Website. If you cancel your membership before the end of the applicable billing cycle, your account will be cancelled as of the following month. You will not receive a refund for the current billing period.
SYO reserves the right to terminate your account or your access to the Website immediately, with or without notice to you, and without liability to you, if SYO believes that you have breached any of the terms of this Agreement, furnished SYO with false or misleading information, or interfered with use of the Website or the Service by others.
Under no circumstances is SYO or YLI responsible to refund any amounts paid by, you in relation to the Website or any SYO services.
No Sharing. Members of SYO may not share, give or sell their password or username to any other person or entity. Excessive viewings or logins by any Member will be construed by SYO as fraudulent use of the Website, which will result in the immediate cancellation of membership without refund. When becoming a Member you agree to take all actions possible to protect your username and password from fraudulent use.
Fraudulent Use. SYO reserves the right to cancel any membership it believes has been compromised, or is being used fraudulently, at its own discretion.
Memberships are billed monthly. All memberships are renewed automatically until cancelled. If membership is terminated due to a violation of this Agreement, SYO will not reimburse the Member for the remainder of any paid month, nor will reimbursements be made for membership cancellations prior to any monthly renewal date. Members may cancel their membership at any time. Membership must be canceled prior to the renewal date in order to end membership charges. At times, special prepaid membership packages will be available for purchase. Special prepaid memberships will be recurring and will renew automatically on the expiry date. Membership must be canceled prior to the renewal date in order to end membership charges.
When you purchase a membership subscription, you will initially be charged at the rate applicable at the time of your agreement to subscribe. If SYO later increases the price of the subscription, SYO will notify you. The increase will apply to the next payment due from you after the notice, provided that you have been given at least 10 days’ prior notice, the price increase will not apply until the payment after the next payment due.
Ongoing Membership. Your SYO membership, which may start with a free trial, will continue month-to-month unless and until you cancel your membership or it is terminated by SYO. You must provide SYO with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, “Payment Method”) to use the Website and the Services. We will bill the monthly membership fee to your Payment Method. You must cancel your membership before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month’s membership fees to your Payment Method.
Free Trial. Your SYO membership may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for two weeks, or as otherwise specified during sign-up. Free trials are for new members only. SYO reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility.
We will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly membership fees at the end of the free trial period of your membership unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the specific details of your membership, including monthly membership price and end date of your free trial period, visit our website and click the “View billing details” link on the “Your Account” page.
You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your membership has begun. CLICK THE “YOUR ACCOUNT” LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF ANY SYO WEB PAGE (www.sattvaonline.com) TO FIND CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your membership fee until you cancel.
Recurring Billing. By starting your SYO membership and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then current rate to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, including gift card redemption and promotional code redemption, and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more charges.
No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
