We attempt to describe the Products offered on the Website as accurately as possible; however, we do not warrant that the descriptions or other content on the Website are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free.
Fees offered on the Website are quoted in United States Dollars and all payments are to be made in United States Dollars. DancePlug reserves the right to change fees and charges for Paid Services offered at the Website at any time, and does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price drop or promotional offering.

4.3 Ongoing Subscriptions with Renewal Fees
DancePlug offers monthly and yearly (12 months) subscription plans, which are subject to recurring fees (“Recurring Subscriptions”) until terminated as described in this Agreement. For detailed information on the type of subscriptions, please refer to the Products description on the pricing page.
Billing and Renewal
When enrolling to Recurring Subscription, the subscription fee will be billed at the initial purchase of your Recurring Subscription and each term, as indicated by the type of subscription, thereafter unless and until you cancel your Recurring Subscription. DancePlug automatically bills your Payment Method each anniversary day ("Billing Date") corresponding to the commencement of your Recurring Subscription. If, however, the activation date of your Recurring Subscriptions is on the 29th, 30th or 31st day of a month, and your Billing Date does not exist in a particular month because there are fewer than thirty-one (31) days in the month payment is due, your Billing Date will move to the 1st of the following month of which your Billing Date would otherwise be. You can see your Billing Date in your Account Settings on the Website. Subscription charges are fully earned upon payment.
BY COMPLETING THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION:
- your Recurring Subscription will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period and continue for another subscription period,
- you will automatically be billed at the start of each new subscription period, and
- that periodic charge for each new subscription period will be automatically billed to your designated billing Payment Method.
The option of pausing may be available with select Paid Services as indicated on the Website. Pausing allows for a Recurring Subscription to be put on hold for a pre-determined amount of time (“Pause Period”) starting on your next Billing Date. Once the Pause Period ends or if you manually resume prior to the Pause Period completion, your Recurring Subscription will be reactivated, and your credit card will be charged for your subscription on a recurring monthly basis. The date your Recurring Subscription is reactivated will be your new Billing Date going forward.
BY PAUSING YOUR RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION:
- your Recurring Subscription will automatically restart at the end of the Pause Period or on the date you manually resume, and continue for another subscription period;
- you will automatically be billed at the start of each new subscription period thereafter; and
- that periodic charge for each new subscription period will be automatically billed to your designated billing Payment Method.
You can discontinue your enrollment in a Recurring Subscription at any time, by logging into your DancePlug account and following the instructions on your account page on the Website. You must cancel your subscription prior to 11:59 p.m. U.S. Western time on the day before your next recurring billing date in order to avoid being charged. Following any cancellation you will continue to have access to the features attached to your Recurring Subscription through the end of your current billing period. On the last day of that current billing period, your Recurring Subscription shall be deemed terminated.
4.4 Refund Policy
Unless specified in this Agreement, PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY OR FULLY USED PERIODS. In rare occasions, and for any reason, we may provide a 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 and absolute 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.
4.5 Billing Discrepancies or Errors
We encourage you to contact us at email@example.com for any inquiries regarding your subscription and any charges made by DancePlug.
Upon successful cancellation, a confirmation email will automatically be sent to you. If you believe you have been incorrectly charged after cancellation, you will be required to provide this cancellation email. Unless you notify DancePlug of any billing discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on your payment statement, they will be deemed accepted by you and you release DancePlug from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any such error or discrepancy.
4.6 Free Trial
Certain aspects of the Website may begin with or have an optional free trial period, and/or a ramping up period where you are able to explore the scope of the Services offered without charge (“Free Trial”). Not all of the Website or functionality of such may be available during a Free Trial period. We reserve the right to determine if you are eligible for a Free Trial and to discontinue any Free Trial without notice for any or no reason. We also reserve the right to modify, cancel, and or limit a Free Trial without notice at any time.
The terms of the current Free Trial are as described below:
- The Free Trial only applies to Recurring Subscriptions (The Enthusiast and The Professional).
- The Free Trial shall last for a period of 7 days (“Trial Period”), starting from the time of registration to the Free Trial. After the Trial Period, regular price for the chosen subscription at time of registration will be charged.
- At the time of signing up for the Free Trial, you will be required to submit your Payment Method as part of the process, to allow automatic payments once the Trial Period finishes.
- If you do not wish to continue the Services after the Trial Period, you must cancel the Recurring Subscription as indicated in the Terms (section above) before the trial ends. You can find the renewal date on your Billing settings page.

YOU AND DANCEPLUG AGREE TO ARBITRATE IN EACH OF OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES ONLY, NOT AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS, AND EACH OF US EXPRESSLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of you, DancePlug, and any other parties to the arbitration or proceedings.
Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims: Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
11.5 Right to Opt Out
You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT.” The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of (a) the Effective Date of these Terms; or (b) the first date that you used the Website that contained any versions of the Terms that included this version of the mandatory arbitration and class action waiver, whichever is later. Otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt out of these arbitration provisions, DancePlug also will not be bound by them.
11.6 Limitation on Time to Bring a Claim
To help resolve any issues between us promptly, you and DancePlug agree to bring any claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, our relationship, or the use of the Services within one year after a claim arises; otherwise, the claim is waived. This limitation applies regardless of the venue in which such claim is or could otherwise be asserted.
