If for any reason Subscriber is dissatisfied with Spectrum-E, Subscriber may notify Spectrum Center of its termination of the Subscription by electronic mail at Spectrum-E@spectrum.center within such forty-eight hour period, re-submitting the credit card, debit card, or other payment information used to purchase the Subscription, at which time Spectrum Center will process a refund of the Subscription Fee. The trial period and potential refund will not apply to any Subscription Term other than the very first Subscription Term that Subscriber purchases.
SUBSCRIPTION TERM. The Subscription Term will begin on the date Spectrum Center activates Subscriber access to Spectrum-E via and will continue for the length of time purchased by Subscriber, unless sooner terminated as provided in these Terms of Service.
