All billing occurs in advance of the period, or term of use, and members are responsible for payment on the invoiced date of service. The monthly or annual membership fee amount may change for a future term unless otherwise indicated in the offer to which one subscribes. Cancellation after the billing date will NOT result in a refund or credit, except as provided in section 3.3.3 Cancellation Terms below. Please note, if your Leadercast subscription is provided by or through a Third-Party Provider, some or all the above provisions relating herein to fees and renewal terms may not apply to you. Please contact your Third-Party Provider for details. Leadercast may cancel your subscription or Trial at any time, based on changes in status with the Third-Party Provider, by notifying you.

Following the first 24- hours after a payment transaction, requests for cancellation will apply to future billing cycles, in which the subscriber’s membership plan will no longer auto-renew.
