12.1 Subscribing

Subscribing to the Service, your credit card will be billed immediately after finishing the subscription payment process. See Section 12.3, Recurring Payment, of this Section 12 for more information. A subscription to the Service means you will have access to create AI photos.

2.2. Payment Methods
We accept only these forms of payment – Paypal, VISA and MasterCard, Apple Pay and Google Pay. We do not accept cash or checks.

2.3. Recurring Payment
By putting in your billing payment method (“Your Designated Payment Method”) and subscribing to the Service, you authorize PhotoAI.me or its designated payment processor to charge the applicable monthly or yearly subscription fees to Your Designated Payment Method. Unless you notify us of your decision to cancel your subscription, your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each subscription term. Your renewed subscription will have the same duration as the subscription being renewed (e.g. one month, etc.). At the time of renewal, your credit card will be charged our then-current fees for the applicable subscription, provided that if the fee for your renewal Service has increased, we will notify you at your designated email address at least fourteen (14) days prior to renewal so that you have an opportunity to elect not to renew.

2.4. Billing Date
Your credit card will be charged for the renewal term of your Service on your billing date ("Billing Date"), based on the type of subscription (e.g., on a particular date each month for a monthly subscription, etc.). If, however, your Activation Date is on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, and your Billing Date does not exist in a particular month because there are fewer than thirty-one (31) days in the month payment is due, your Billing Date for that particular renewal will be on the last day of the month in which your Billing Date would otherwise be.

2.5 Invoicing
An invoice is issued on the billing date for each charge made. The tax applied on the invoice will be dependent on the country where the service is used. This is determined by verifying the country you indicate in the checkout process and IP address we obtain during the web session. If the identified countries differ between the two methods we consider the country indicated by you during the checkout process as the main country where the service is used.

2.6. Late Payments
Your subscription may be deactivated or cancelled without notice if the payment for your subscription is past due or if Your Designated Payment Method is declined or denied for any reason. If Your Designated Payment Method is declined or denied for any reason, we will deactivate your subscription and send you a notification email regarding such problem with processing your payment. We will try Your Designated Payment Method every three (3) days and after three (3) failed attempts, we will cancel your subscription, and you will need to re-subscribe to the Service.

2.7. Early Cancellation
You may cancel your subscription at any time. If you cancel your subscription, you will have access to the full Service until the date that would have been your next Billing Date.
