The Autosport.com Website is controlled and offered by Autosport.com from its facilities in the United States of America.

Payments, Billing; Subscriptions
1. Subscriptions and other services requiring payment generally require use of a valid credit card, use of a valid PayPal, Apple Pay, or Google Pay account, or a bank wire transfer. Autosport.com and its business partners reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to establish other acceptable alternative payment methods for specific services or products. You are solely responsible for charges owed for all goods and services purchased through this site, including, but not limited to, applicable taxes, shipping charges, insurance, and any other costs.
2. While Autosport.com may offer a limited number of news articles for free, Autosport Plus charges a fee to access Content that requires a subscription in order to offer Content that Autosport.com would not otherwise be able to make available without charging a fee.
3. You can find the specific details regarding your subscription at any time by logging in on the Autosport.com Platform and clicking on Dashboard under your profile image. You agree that your subscription is for individual use only. This means that you may not download and/or republish and/or redistribute and/or store in a retrieval system any content (text, images or otherwise) from our websites, in whole or in part, without the express written permission of Autosport. Please note that failing to respect the terms of our service may result in your immediate ban and with no reimbursement, while further legal action can be taken against you in serious cases of copyright infringements. Giving out your login details to others may result in your ban and no reimbursement.
4. Because the Service is offered in multiple time zones, for consistency, a “day” for purposes of these TOS begins at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time and ends at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time of that same calendar day.
5. Billing. By providing a credit card or other payment method accepted by Autosport.com (“Payment Method”) for your subscription, you are expressly agreeing that Autosport.com is authorized to charge you a subscription fee (including for ongoing renewals until you cancel your subscription), any other fees for additional services you may purchase, and any applicable taxes in connection with your use of your subscription to the Payment Method. If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up to use during registration, or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by logging in on the Autosport.com Platform and clicking on Dashboard under your profile image. When you provide a Payment Method to access a subscription, including in connection with a free trial offer (if applicable), our system will attempt to verify the information you entered. Autosport.com does this by processing an authorization hold, which is a standard practice. Autosport.com does not charge you in connection with this authorization hold. If your Payment Method expires and you do not update your Payment Method information or cancel your account, you authorize Autosport.com to continue billing you, and regardless of the status of your Payment Method, you will remain responsible to pay for any unpaid amounts.
6. As used in these TOS “billing” shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. We will bill the subscription fee at the beginning of your subscription or upon the expiration of your free trial period, if any, whichever is earlier, and on each renewal date thereafter (monthly or annually, as applicable), unless and until you cancel your subscription or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these TOS. To see the commencement date for your next renewal period, log in on the applicable Autosport.com Platform and click on Dashboard under your profile image.
7. Autosport.com automatically bills your Payment Method each month or year (depending on the subscription) generally on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription. As in the case with monthly subscriptions, if your subscription begins on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying subscriber on January 31st, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28th. If you change your Payment Method, this could result in changing the calendar day upon which you are billed. You acknowledge that the amount billed each monthly or annual period may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your subscription, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize Autosport.com to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts. If Autosport.com changes the subscription fees or other charges for your subscription, Autosport.com will give you advance notice of these changes by email and you will have the option to cancel your subscription before any price increase takes effect. However, Autosport.com will not be able to notify you of changes in any applicable taxes.
8. Very rarely, if there are special circumstances where Autosport.com determines it is appropriate (e.g., your subscription service is unavailable for days due to technical difficulties), Autosport.com may provide credits to affected subscribers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at Autosport.com's sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle anyone to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances.
9. Ongoing Subscription and Cancellation. Your subscription will continue in effect on a month-to-month or annual basis (depending on subscription selected), unless and until you cancel your subscription or the account or Service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these TOS. You must cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before your monthly or annual renewal date in order to avoid being charged for the next billing period. Autosport.com will bill the monthly or annual subscription fee plus any applicable taxes to the Payment Method you provide to Autosport.com during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). If you cancel your subscription, cancellation will be effective at the end of the then current monthly period or annual period – this means that you will have continued access to your subscription for the remainder of that period, and you will not receive a credit or refund in respect of the period between the date you inform us of your cancellation and the end of the current monthly period or annual period. You can cancel your subscription by sending an email to our customer service team at email@example.com.
10. Unpaid Amounts. It is important that each subscriber honor their payment obligations to which they agreed. Accordingly, Autosport.com reserves the right to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your subscription. You will remain liable for all such amounts and all costs incurred in connection with the collection of these amounts, including, without limitation, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.
11. Autosport.com Subscription Tiers. Autosport.com has a number of subscription tiers available to purchase. A subscription to "Autosport Plus" enables the subscriber to access an unlimited number of articles, subscriber-only Autosport Plus content, while being subject to a relatively limited quantity of ads compared to non-subscribers. A subscription to "Autosport Digital Bundle" enables the subscriber to access the same benefits as an "Autosport Plus" subscription, with additional access to a digital version of Autosport magazine. Access to the digital Autosport magazine through the "Autosport Digital Bundle" is only available through Autosport.com and is not valid on the "Autosport Magazine" App. A subscription to “Digital Mag & Archive Only” is only valid in combination with a valid “Autosport Plus” subscription. This is a separate subscription which allows existing subscribers to “Autosport Plus” to access the digital version of Autosport magazine. A subscription to “Digital Mag & Archive Only” is separate from the “Autosport Plus” subscription and will be charged separately. The subscriber may cancel the “Digital Mag & Archive Only” subscription without cancelling the “Autosport Plus” subscription. A subscription to a “Low-Ads” subscription will only allow the subscriber to use Autosport.com with a limited number of ads compared to non-subscribers. Online subscriptions do not include delivery of the printed Autosport magazine. For conventional Autosport magazine subscriptions, which include access to Autosport Plus and the Digital Edition of Autosport, click here.
12. Registered Accounts. A user may create an account on Autosport.com for free which may entitle the user to access a limited number of extra articles. The number of extra articles is at the discretion of Autosport.com and may change on a regular basis.
