Fees, Payment and Subscription Renewals
6. Fees, Payment and Subscription Renewals
6.1. Fees and Payment. The use of certain Services may be subject to payment of particular fees ("Premium Services" and "Fee(s)", respectively). Wix shall provide notice of such Fees then in effect on the Website or through such other communication as designated by Wix. If you wish to receive or use such Premium Services, you shall be required to pay all applicable Fees in advance. In accordance with the foregoing, please note that Wix reserves the right to change its Fees at any time. As part of registering or submitting information to receive the Premium Services for which a Fee will be owed by you, you also authorize Wix directly or through third parties or Wix's affiliates to request payment from (or otherwise charge) your designated payment or banking account and to make any inquiries Wix considers necessary to validate your designated payment account or financial information in order to ensure prompt payment, including for the purpose of receiving updated payment details from your payment, credit card or banking account provider (e.g., updated expiry date or card number as may be provided to us by your credit card provider).
All Fees will be in U.S. Dollars, except as specifically stated otherwise in writing by Wix. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all applicable taxes, levies, or duties with respect to your use of the Wix Services or payments or purchases made by you.
In the event of failure to collect the Fees owed by you, we may in our sole discretion (however we shall not be obligated to) retry to collect in different dates. Failure to pay any required Fee shall entitle Wix to suspend (until full payment is made) or terminate your User Account and User Website. Please also note that additional fees may apply to re-activation.
6.2. Subscription Renewals. IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT YOU DO NOT EXPERIENCE AN INTERRUPTION OR LOSS OF SERVICES, THE PREMIUM SERVICES OPERATE WITH AUTOMATIC RENEWAL, ON A RECURRING-FEES BASIS. ACCORDINGLY, WIX WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW THE APPLICABLE PREMIUM SERVICE FOR A RENEWAL PERIOD EQUAL IN TIME TO THE ORIGINAL SERVICE PERIOD. FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE ORIGINAL SERVICE PERIOD IS FOR ONE MONTH, YOUR RENEWAL PERIOD WILL BE FOR ONE MONTH. THEREFORE, UNLESS YOU CANCEL, WIX WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW THE APPLICABLE WIX SERVICE WHEN IT COMES UP FOR RENEWAL, AND WILL AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE YOU THE APPLICABLE RECURRING FEES FROM THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU HAVE ON FILE WITH WIX AT WIX'S THEN CURRENT RATES, WHICH YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER THAN THE RATES FOR THE ORIGINAL SERVICE PERIOD. YOU MAY CANCEL ANY PREMIUM SERVICES AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO THE AUTOMATIC RENEWAL. IN SUCH EVENT THE PREMIUM SERVICES SHALL BE DISCONTINUED UPON THE EXPIRATION OF THE RESPECTIVE PERIOD FOR WHICH YOU HAVE MADE PAYMENT. YOU SHALL NOT HAVE ANY CLAIMS TOWARDS WIX IN RELATION TO THE DISCONTINUATION OF SUCH SERVICES.
6.3. Account Cancellation. Subject to the foregoing conditions, Users may decide to discontinue their use of any Services at any time ("Cancellation of Account"). Such Cancellation of Account may be initiated by Users through the Wix Services and according to the instructions posted therein. The date and time of any Cancellation of Account of any Services shall be the date and time on which the User has completed the cancellation process on the Services ("Cancellation Date"). Once completed, Users will not be charged for the Services as of the first day of the month of following the Cancellation Date.
6.4. Refunds. Unless otherwise noted, all Fees are non-refundable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Wix may offer a free trial period for certain Premium Services requiring an annual service or subscription commitment. In particular, Wix offers a 14-day money back refund opportunity for such Premium Services ("Trial Period"). In case you are not satisfied with any Premium Services requiring a fee for an annual service or subscription commitment of one year, you may provide notice of cancellation for any reason within fourteen (14) days of having first ordered or activated such Premium Services. If Wix receives such notice within such 14-day Trial Period, Wix will refund to you the amount you actually paid and cancel the applicable Premium Services. Wix, however, will not refund any amounts paid after the lapse of the Trial Period. Please also note that any cancellation of any Premium Services or of any of the Services related to your User Account may cause the loss of certain content, features, or capacity of your User Account, including any User Content or other usage data retained therein. Wix does not accept any liability for such loss.7. Intellectual Property Rights

All rights, title and interest in and to the Services and all intellectual property rights pertaining thereto, including to any copyrightable materials, graphics, text, artwork, images, logos, media, applications, designs (including the "look and feel" of the Services, and any part thereof), specifications, methods, procedures, information, know-how, software, programs, source and object code, computer code (including html code), products, algorithms, data, technical data, interactive features, files, user and graphic interfaces, inventions, patents and patent applications, trademarks, trade names and trade secrets, whether or not registered and/or capable of being registered (collectively, "Intellectual Property"), are owned by and/or licensed to Wix, and are subject to copyright and other applicable intellectual property rights under Israeli laws, foreign laws and international conventions. The Terms do not convey to you any right or interest in or to the Services or Wix's Intellectual Property (or any part thereof), but only a limited license of use only those portions thereof as expressly granted and permitted hereunder, and any other use, without the prior express written permission of Wix, is prohibited. Nothing in the Terms constitutes a waiver of Wix's Intellectual Property rights under any law.
7.2. License to Services and Content. Subject to your continued and full compliance with the Terms, Wix hereby grants you, upon becoming a Registered User as set forth above and for as long as Wix agrees to provide you with the Services, a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, fully revocable, limited license to use the Services and Content for your personal and/or commercial purposes, solely as expressly permitted under the Terms. Any other uses of the Services and/or Content (including downloading any Content and/or using it outside of the Services, or dissemination of any Content to any third party) are strictly prohibited, except if expressly provided otherwise in writing, by Wix or such third parties offering such Content.

Accordingly, you agree to secure and protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of Wix (and/or its licensors), using at least as great a degree of care as you use to maintain the confidentiality of your own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event using less than reasonable efforts. You also acknowledge and agree that any disclosure or unauthorized use of such Confidential Information may be detrimental to Wix and its business and goodwill. You therefore shall not, nor permit any third party to, use, transfer, sell, publish, disclose, or otherwise make available any portion of the Confidential Information to third parties, except as expressly authorized under the Terms. All Confidential Information of Wix shall remain the exclusive property of Wix.
These restrictions do not apply to Confidential Information which you (i) are required to disclose by law or regulation, or in response to a valid order of a court or other governmental body, only to the extent and for the purposes of such law, regulation or order, and only if you first notify Wix of such law, regulation or order, and permit Wix to seek an appropriate protective order or move to quash or limit such order; or (ii) disclose with written permission of Wix, in compliance with any terms or conditions set by Wix regarding such disclosure.
