Fees and payment
There is a fee for some of our Services. Where the fee is a subscription, we may, in our sole discretion, change the fee at the end of your subscription period provided we first notify you by email. Where the fee is for something other than a subscription, we will notify you in advance of any rate changes. All fees are payable in accordance with the payment terms applicable at the time of payment. We may offer some promotional trials or time-limited discounts for certain Services from time to time. If you sign up or register through a trial, promotional or discount event, your rights of use will be subject to and limited by the terms of the trial, promotion or discount offer and will terminate or renew in accordance with the terms of the offer or any additional terms communicated related to the trial, promotion or discount offer.

Important health warning about photosensitive seizures
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games or other online activities. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” while playing video games. You should immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any symptoms such as lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms. You can reduce risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures by taking the following precautions:
- Play in a well-lit room
- Do not play if you are drowsy or fatigued.
If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing video games or other screen-focused activities.
