We may update the Terms of Service from time to time. You agree to review this page to take notice of any changes we made, as they are binding on you. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of updated Terms of Service means that you agree to the changes.

Unless you notify PDF Buddy before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel an Upgrade, your Upgrade subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such Upgrade (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. Upgrades can be canceled at any time in the Upgrades section of your site’s dashboard, or by contacting email@example.com.
