By subscribing to the Service, you expressly agree to pay monthly subscription fees, corresponding to your subscription plan, plus any applicable tax.

You hereby authorize us to automatically charge your payment method for the subscription fees on each monthly anniversary of the commencement of your subscription, until you cancel your subscription. Subscription fees are fully earned upon payment. In the event your subscription commenced on a day not contained in a given month, Zuum will charge you on the last day of such month. You must cancel your subscription before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month’s subscription fees to your payment method. Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partial-month subscription periods.

Zuum may offer a free trial of the Service from time to time. Free trial may be for a limited period of time or for a limited number of uses. To view the specific details of, or eligibility for, a free trial, visit the Site. You must register and designate a payment method even for the free trial. Zuum will begin charging your designated payment method for monthly subscription fees plus any applicable tax at the end of the free trial unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended and your subscription shall be deemed to have commenced at the end of the free trial. IF YOU CANCEL PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR FREE TRIAL PERIOD, THERE WILL BE NO CHARGES TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD.
To cancel your subscription, please visit the Site and follow the membership cancellation instructions. You may cancel your subscription at anytime, and cancellation will be effective immediately. ZUUM DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS.

In addition, Customer expressly waives and relinquishes any and all rights and benefits which Customer may have under any other state or federal statute or common law principle of similar effect, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless us, our officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service the Site and/or the App; (ii) your violation of this Agreement; or (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right.
