Paid Membership Terms of Services and Refund Policy

GDBAY allows you to access certain premium features or content in exchange for a one-time or recurring fee, as applicable (the “Member Services”). Your transactions and any other use of the Member Services are subject to these Paid Membership Terms of Service (Membership Terms of Services). By using a Member Service, you agree to (1) these Membership Terms of Service; and (2) GDBAY’s Terms of ServicePrivacy Policy, and all other terms and conditions that generally apply to the gdbay.net website (all of these together are the “Terms”. Please read the Terms carefully. If you don’t understand them, or don’t accept any part of them, then you’re not allowed to use the gdbay.net website.

Fees. Subscription fees for the Member Services are recurring payments (except where identified as otherwise). The term may be monthly or annual. Your subscription begins upon payment of a first instalment of subscription fees. Monthly or annual fees are charged on the same day of the month that the subscription began. (For example, if a monthly subscription began on the 29th, 30th, or 31st day of a month, then membership will renew on the last day of any month that doesn’t have that many days.)

Payment. GDBAY accepts payment via the current payment method indicated at time of purchase, which may include credit card, Apple Pay, and any other form of payment that we make available to you from time to time. You agree to abide by any relevant Terms of Service or other legal agreement whether with GDBAY, Apple, Stripe, Google, PayPal or another third party, that governs your use of a given payment processing method. Prices for Member Services may change at any time, and GDBAY does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering. You agree to pay for any Member Services that you order (except during a free trial period). GDBAY will charge your credit card or other form of payment for the price listed on the relevant Member Services offer, along with any additional amounts relating to applicable taxes, bank fees and currency fluctuations. If you purchase any automatically renewing subscriptions, you agree that GDBAY will charge the payment method on file on the first day of each billing period for the relevant subscription, and if the payment method on file becomes invalid due to an expired credit card or other similar reason and we are unable to charge you on the next billing period, GDBAY reserves the right to immediately revoke your access to any Member Services you have ordered until you update your payment method. If you fail to update your payment method within a reasonable amount of time, GDBAY may cancel your subscription.

Purchase Codes. To pay for the subscription and access to the closed sections of gdbay.net (PRO Membership), we offer to use the purchase of PRO Membership activation codes – Purchase Code. This code can be purchased on affiliate websites or given out as a promotion. You can activate the Purchase Code on gdbay.net in your personal account. Each Purchase Code activates a subscription for a set period of time to be used by closed sections of gdbay.net (PRO Membership). When you purchase the Purchase Code, you must understand that access to the private areas of gdbay.net (PRO Membership) will end on the last day of the specified period of use of the Purchase Code you purchased.

Every acquisition of a purchase code must be treated as Payment and regulated under the Payment section of the Paid Membership Terms of Services and Refund Policy.
