Your payment to Edspace will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period, unless you cancel your Network Membership before the end of the current subscription period. The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period, and you will no longer have access to network membership features. If you have gained access to network membership through your company, your subscription is also subject to the terms of your agreement with that third party (in addition to these Terms). To cancel your subscription, you must cancel directly with your company. Edspace may change the price for its services, and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for network membership will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the service after the price change takes effect.
