The process set out in Section 5 under the heading "Modification to these Terms", including notice in advance and cancellation by you if you do not agree to the change, will similarly apply here. Unless we notify you otherwise, changes for paid subscriptions will take effect at the start of the next subscription period and your continued use of the Loops Services after the effective date of the price change will be deemed acceptance of such amended fees. If you do not agree with the price changes you will have the right to downgrade your account prior to the price change taking effect, however by downgrading you may lose data, therefore it is entirely your responsibility to ensure you have backed-up your Content and Feedback. Loops takes no responsibility for loss of Content, Feedback or any other data as a result of Loops Account downgrades.

At the end of a trial we may automatically start to charge you for the applicable paid subscription immediately following the end of the trial. By providing your payment details, you agree to this charge using said payment details.
