Terms of Service - Payment

When reviewing the payment section of an online terms of service, pay close attention to any 'auto-renewal' language. In most cases, it is your responsibility to keep an up to date credit card on file (so keep track of those expiration dates) if you want a service to auto-renew. If your credit card is outdated or no longer in use, your service may be cancelled unexpectedly. For those services where you prefer not to have an auto-renewal feature, make sure to send an e-mail and see if they can turn that feature off (something in writing that is acknowledged as received is better than just statements you get from someone over the phone).
