Recurring Billing. Our subscription plans to the Service (each, a “Subscription”) consist of an initial period, for which there is a one-time charge, followed by recurring period charges as agreed to by you. By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your Subscription has an initial and recurring payment feature and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation (including without limitation any charges for any applicable taxes, shipping charges, and other charges), Paragon may submit periodic charges (e.g. yearly) without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice (confirmed in writing by Paragon) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your payment method. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before Paragon could reasonably act. You may change your payment method or cancel your paid membership by a provider of your chosen Payment Method (the "Payment Method Provider") in your account settings on the Websites. For your convenience, we take your payment information so that your Paragon membership will not be interrupted. We auto-renew your membership at the level you selected. Your Paragon Subscription will be automatically extended for successive renewal periods of the same duration as the Subscription term originally selected, at the then-current non-promotional Subscription rate (if applicable).

CHANGES TO SUCH INFORMATION CAN BE MADE AT ACCOUNT SETTINGS. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE PARAGON ANY OF THE FOREGOING INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT PARAGON MAY CONTINUE CHARGING YOU FOR ANY USE OF THE SERVICE UNDER YOUR BILLING ACCOUNT UNLESS YOU HAVE TERMINATED YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE SERVICE (CONFIRMED BY YOU IN WRITING UPON REQUEST BY PARAGON).

g. Reaffirmation of Authorization. Your non-termination or continued use of the Service reaffirms that Paragon is authorized to charge your Payment Method. Paragon may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. This does not waive Paragon’s right to seek payment directly from you. Your charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when you initially subscribed to the Service. h. Refunds. You acknowledge and agree that, except where otherwise provided in writing, all sales are final, and that Paragon cannot offer refunds or other compensation for Products returned to us. i. Pricing.

Any shipment of Products to you after our delivery of such notice will confirm your acceptance of such changes, unless you have canceled your Subscription in accordance with Section 9(d). j. Availability. All Products available on the Service are subject to availability. Paragon reserves the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to impose quantity limits on any order placed by you on the Service (each, an “Order”), to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products, and/or to substitute Products (including, without limitation, specific ingredients or entire items) without prior notice. k.

If goods sold over the internet are not taxable in your state, you will not be charged a sales tax. If a Product is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, including without limitation variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates. Paragon reserves the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time; provided, however, that we will provide you with prior notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. In many cases, shipping is handled by a third party and Paragon does not have control over the actual delivery of your Product. Actual delivery dates may vary.
