Payment. By providing Payment Method information for your CBS All Access Canada subscription, you are agreeing to pay a monthly subscription fee and any applicable taxes and service fees (“Fees”) in connection with your use of CBS All Access Canada. The Fees will be charged to your Payment Method automatically at the beginning of your subscription (or, as described in Section 7.9, at the end of your Promotional Offer, where applicable), and at the beginning of each monthly renewal thereafter on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription unless you cancel your subscription or your account or CBS All Access Canada is suspended or terminated pursuant to these Terms. If your subscription begins after the 28th day of a month, then in any subsequent month in which that day does not occur, CBS Interactive will charge your Payment Method on approximately the last day of such month. For example, if you started your monthly subscription on January 31st, your next payment date will be approximately February 28th. The Fees charged to your Payment Method may vary from one billing period to the next due to changes in your subscription plan or applicable taxes, and you authorize CBS Interactive to charge your Payment Method for these amounts. CBS reserves the right to change the pricing of CBS All Access Canada at any time. In the event of a price change, CBS Interactive will post the new pricing in CBS All Access Canada and attempt to notify you in advance by sending an email to the address you have registered for your account. If you do not wish to accept a price change, you may cancel your CBS All Access Canada subscription as described in Section 7.6. Residents of Quebec may have other rights. If there are any discrepancies in billing, you hereby waive your right to dispute such discrepancies, to the fullest extent permitted by law, if you do not notify CBS Interactive within 60 days after they first appear on an account statement. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL INTERNET ACCESS CHARGES. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER FOR INFORMATION ON POSSIBLE INTERNET DATA USAGE CHARGES.
No Refunds. ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. As described further in Section 7.6, even if you cancel CBS All Access Canada during a monthly subscription period, you will not receive a refund for any portion of the Fees for the remainder of that subscription period; you will have continued access to the Service until the end of your subscription period (as described below). In rare circumstances, we may provide a credit, refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our subscribers (“Credits”). The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole discretion. The provision of Credits in one instance does not entitle you to Credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide Credits in the future, under any circumstance. Residents of Quebec may have other rights.
Unpaid Amounts. If you fail to pay any Fees when due, as a result of expiration of your Payment Method, insufficient funds, or otherwise, (1) you will remain liable for all such amounts, as well as any costs that CBS Interactive incurs in collecting any amounts you fail to pay in connection with CBS All Access Canada, including attorney and collections fees; (2) you authorize CBS Interactive to continue charging your Payment Method, as your Payment Method information may be updated as described in Section 7.1; and (3) we may suspend or terminate your subscription. Changing your Payment Method information may affect the day of your monthly subscription renewal.
Promo Codes. From time to time, promotional codes may be available, including those provided as part of a third party promotion. Promotional codes may be redeemed as described in the specifics of the promotion. Promotional codes can only be used once, cannot be redeemed for cash, and may not be combined with other offers, subject to certain restrictions as determined by CBS Interactive in its sole discretion. If you received a promotional code through an offer by a third party, additional conditions may apply.
Promotional Offers. CBS Interactive may provide a limited introductory offer for new subscribers or other promotional offers (“Promotional Offer”) to new subscribers and/or certain former subscribers at its sole discretion, but is under no obligation to do so, and Promotional Offers may not be available at all times. CBS Interactive reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for an Promotional Offer. CBS Interactive will only provide you with an Promotional Offer after you first subscribe to CBS All Access Canada, agree to these terms, and provide valid Payment Method information to CBS Interactive.The specific terms of the Promotional Offer will be stated in the marketing material describing the particular Promotional Offer. In addition to these Terms, the specific terms of the Promotional Offer will be stated in the marketing material describing the particular Promotional Offer. CBS Interactive will not charge you for the period covered by the Promotional Offer and will inform you of the date on which you will start being charged for CBS All Access Canada. You may review this information on your account page. We may place a temporary charge in a nominal amount on your Payment Method to ensure the validity of the Payment Method, but the temporary charge will be removed promptly. Once the Promotional Offer period has expired, your regular subscription period will commence and your payment will be made in accordance with Section 7.4 above. You may cancel your subscription at any time during the Promotional Offer period, with no charge or obligation. If you cancel CBS All Access Canada by the last “day” of your Promotional Offer, you will not be billed for your subscription. A “day” for purposes of these Terms begins at the time you complete the sign up process for your subscription and ends 24 hours later. For example, if you complete your registration at 3:00 p.m. on a Monday in your time zone, and your Promotional Offer is 2 days, your Promotional Offer will expire at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday in your time zone. You may only have one Promotional Offer before you must begin paying for CBS All Access Canada. If you exceed this limit, CBS Interactive may charge your Payment Method for any Promotional Offer after the first, or suspend your use of CBS All Access Canada, in its sole discretion.
Maximum Streams. You may only use a maximum of two simultaneous streams (measured across all Content available on CBS All Access Canada) at any time regardless of the number of devices that CBS Interactive permits you to use with CBS All Access Canada. CBS Interactive may change the maximum number of simultaneous streams of CBS All Access Canada that you may use at any time in its sole discretion.
Territory Restrictions. CBS All Access Canada is only available to Canadian-based users. You may only use CBS All Access Canada and its content in Canada and for your own personal, non-commercial purposes. Certain features and content may only be available to users in certain locations, during certain periods, and on certain devices, and the availability of certain features and content may change over time (subject to Section 1). Please check the CBS All Access Canada FAQ for more information about current limitations.

When you access CBS All Access Canada through a portal provided by such a third-party distributor, and the distributor transmits CBS All Access Canada content to you, the provisions of this Section 7 concerning access to and delivery of CBS All Access Canada do not necessarily apply, and in the event of a conflict, the distributor’s applicable terms govern.

In addition, you agree that we may arrange for Mobile Features billing through your wireless provider and that your wireless provider may invoice you for the applicable fees or deduct them from your pre-paid balance.

Disputes; Arbitration To the fullest extent permitted by law, If you have any dispute with or claim against us or any of our affiliates, or if we have a dispute with or claim against you, in either case arising out of or relating to the Service or these Terms (a “Claim”), and the Claim is not resolved by reaching out to customer support, you and we each agree to resolve such Claim through an individual binding arbitration or through an individual action in small claims court in San Francisco, California. You and we agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This Section 15 shall survive termination of these Terms or your subscription to the Service. Before you or we commence an arbitration or file a small claims court action with respect to a Claim, you must first send to CBS Interactive a written notice of your claim or we must send a written notice of our claim to you (“Notice”). Your Notice must (1) be sent by certified mail; (2) be addressed to: CBS Interactive, 235 Second Street, San Francisco, CA 94105 ATTN: Legal Department; (3) describe the nature of your Claim; and (4) specify the damages or other relief you seek.
