If you upgrade your membership or add new categories of service to your account, such changes may result in a new billing date. You agree to pay the membership fees, and other charges you incur in connection with your Footpath account, whether on a one-time or subscription basis.

You may cancel your Footpath Elite membership at any time, as described below.
If you signed up through the Google Play or iTunes store, you may cancel your Elite membership by downgrading through the corresponding store.
