  • Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).

  • If you purchase a subscription, your payment method automatically will be charged at the start of each subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that period. To avoid future charges, cancel before the renewal date.
  • All of your purchases of Services are subject to FirstWorldwide’s LTD refund policy.
