Membership Automatic Renewal
For the convenience of our Members, CCPA has implemented an automatic renewal process for all subscriptions.
By subscribing to our services, you agree to the automatic renewal of your membership for subsequent billing cycles. Your subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of each billing period unless you choose to cancel it.
We will notify you via email before your membership renewal date, providing you with the opportunity to cancel or make any necessary changes to your subscription. If you do not cancel your subscription before the renewal date, your payment method will be charged automatically, and your membership will be extended for the next billing period.
You can manage your subscription and cancel the automatic renewal at any time by accessing your account settings on our website. To cancel your automatic renewal or change your payment method, you can log into your profile on the website, click the down caret by your name and select Account>Subscription. Payment information is available in the far right column.
At this time there is no option to renew your subscription early.
When you sign up to become a member of CCPA, you must enter your personal information, including your payment information on the Website. The payment information is transmitted to our Payment Processor (STRIPE) securely using 256-bit encryption. CCPA does not store any payment information locally. For more information on how we handle payment information, you can read the Credit Card Transactions Policy below.
