8. PAYMENT POLICY
Access to some sections of the Happify™ website or through certain Happify programs is free, but we charge for some of our products and services on a subscription fee basis. This Payment Policy applies to users who have purchased a Happify™ subscription plan to access Happify™ either online or through a mobile application.
(a) Overview of Subscription Plans and Payments
We offer several types of individual plans and gift plans. The pricing terms applicable to your account may vary depending on promotions, the type of subscription and the term you select at the time of purchase. Most of our subscription plans renew automatically, as described in more detail below. If you have questions regarding your plan after you sign up, please refer to your Membership page and the confirmation email that will be sent to you after your purchase.
We may from time to time, at our discretion, offer a 30-day trial period for the yearly and two-year subscription plans, and if you sign up under that offer, you will not be billed for the full term until the end of the 30-day trial period. Note that trial periods are not available with the mobile subscription plans. After the end of any trial period, our mobile and online subscription plans are billed in one up-front payment for the entire term of the plan you choose. Thus, if you purchase a monthly plan, you will be charged for the full month’s payment at the beginning of each month; and if you purchase a yearly plan or two-year plan, you will be charged for the entire year or two-year term at the beginning of the term. You will also be able to cancel the yearly or two-year subscription within 30 days after the fee has been charged to your account, in accordance with our cancellation terms. We may use a third-party payment processor to facilitate your payments.
(b) Lifetime Subscription Plans
Happify™ offers a Lifetime subscription plan. A Happify™ Lifetime subscription plan allows you to access the Happify™ services available at the time of your purchase for as long as those services are available. You may not assign a Lifetime subscription plan to any other person. Happify™ makes no warranties or representations that any of its services will continue to be available for any period of time, and in purchasing a Lifetime plan, you acknowledge and agree that the Happify™ services could change or terminate at any time in the future.
(c) Refund Policy
Happify™ offers a 30-day, 100% money - back guarantee for subscriptions made online at Happify.com for the yearly, two-year, and lifetime plans. The monthly plan is excluded from this offer as are subscriptions for mobile applications. You may receive a refund by contacting our Customer Service team within 30 days of your purchase. Requests made after 30 days will not be eligible. We do not prorate refunds or offer partial refunds except in an instance where we have terminated your membership for any reason other than your breach of our terms. Purchases of subscriptions made through the Apple iTunes Store or our iPhone or iPad applications are final, and are not eligible for a refund. These purchases are subject to Apple’s terms and payment policy, and Apple’s policy may exclude refunds as well.
Purchases of subscriptions made through the Google Play Store or our Android applications are final, and are not eligible for a refund. These purchases are subject to Google Play's terms and payment policy, and Google Play's policy may exclude refunds as well.
All Happify™ subscriptions made online at Happify.com, except gift purchases, renew automatically using the payment details on file for your account. If you purchase a subscription with the automatic renewal feature, you agree that we are authorized to use the payment information on file to charge the renewal fee.
The date of automatic renewal of your subscription is shown on your Membership page and in the payment confirmation email sent after your initial purchase. You may cancel the automatic renewal feature at any time before the renewal date by following the instructions on your Membership page or by contacting our Customer Service team. Additionally, for annual and two - year subscriptions, we will refund renewal payments in full if you contact our Customer Service team within 7 days after the renewal payment is made. We do not offer refunds for renewal payments for monthly subscriptions after the monthly subscription fee has been charged to your account.
If you signed up for our services using a promotion discount, fees for your renewal may be higher than your initial rate. Please refer to your Membership page or the confirmation email sent after your initial purchase for details regarding the renewal amount and the date of the next renewal.
(e) Price Increases
Our prices may change in the future. We will notify you at the time of any price change, and provide you an opportunity to change or cancel your subscription before applying those changes to your account or changing your payment details in connection with an automatic renewal.
(f) Payment Information
By providing payment information to us, you represent that the payment information is accurate, current and in your own name or in the name of an individual who has authorized you to use his or her payment information for your subscription purchase.
If you provide someone else’s payment information, you agree that we may make a refund to that person if he or she so requests and if the account is eligible for a refund under our Payment Policy. This may cause interruption to or termination of your Happify™ Services.
