In such an event, you will get access to Paid Content as soon as the provided payment information has been processed and approved.
When you subscribe for Paid Content, JoyTunes may, from time to time at its sole discretion offer a trial period in which such Paid Content may be accessed without payment or at a reduced rate (“Trial Period”). This may vary depending on promotions, type of subscription and the term you select at the time of purchase.

JoyTunes may require you to provide your valid payment information in order to start the Trial Period. By providing this information, you agree that unless you choose to cancel your paid subscription prior to the end of the Trial Period, JoyTunes may automatically begin charging you for such Paid Content, starting on the first day following the Trial Period, on a monthly (or other recurring) basis as notified to you, until you cancel your subscription to such Paid Content (i.e. turn off automatic renewal from your 'account settings' or via the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store). If you do not want to be charged, you must cancel your subscription to such Paid Content before the end of the Trial Period. If you cancel your subscription to Paid Content, your Account will only have access to those parts of our Services that you may access for free.
The subscription fee for our auto-renewable subscription plans may be billed as one-time advance payment for the subscribed period (e.g., 1, 3, 6 or 12 months) or in monthly installments charged every month in advance for the duration of the subscription period.
The pricing and terms applicable to your subscription may vary depending on promotions, type of subscription and the subscription period you select at the time of purchase. If your subscription started with a promotion or Trial Period at a reduced rate, your renewal rate may be higher than your initial rate. In some cases, your payment billing dates or billing term for your subscription may change if your payment was not successfully finalized on the original due date. JoyTunes will use reasonable efforts to inform you of the billing term change through email. If you have registered for any Paid Content, you may change your mind and receive a full refund of all monies paid within thirty (30) days from your subscription to such Paid Content, provided that during such period you have not at any time used or otherwise accessed such Paid Content. If you choose to sign up for an auto-renewable subscription for Paid Content, you understand and agree that your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period, and that payment for the renewal period is automatically charged to you using the payment information you have provided, unless you cancel your subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period.
JoyTunes reserves the right to modify the subscription fees for the Services, effective upon commencement of the next renewal subscription term of the relevant order form(s), by notifying you of such change in writing at least 30 days before the end of the then-current subscription term and the relevant order form(s) will be deemed amended accordingly.

If you do not agree to a price change, then your only right is to terminate your account. To the extent permitted under applicable law, continuing to use the Services after any price or fee change takes effect, shall indicate that you accept such price or fee change. If you do not accept a price change, your only right is to refuse the change by cancelling the subscription to Paid Content before the price change takes effect.
