Fees, Payment, and Renewal

a. Automattic Fees

  • Fees for Paid Services *** Some of our Services are offered for a fee, such as room or home rental plans (collectively, "Paid Services"). By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees, and fees associated with specific features, such as Recurring Payments (rental renewals). Depending on the Paid Service, there may be a one-time fee, recurring fees, or profit sharing based fee where apllicable. For recurring fees, we’ll bill or charge you for in regular automatically-renewing intervals (such as monthly, annually, or biennially), on a pre-pay basis until you cancel, which you can do at any time by contacting the relevant support team. For profit sharing you pay us a percentage of the revenue your service or product generates. Profit sharing fees are ongoing.
  • Taxes.*** To the extent permitted by law, or unless explicitly stated otherwise, all fees are exclusive of applicable federal, provincial, state, local or other governmental sales, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees, or charges now in force or enacted in the future ("Taxes"). You are responsible for payment of all applicable Taxes relating to your use of our Services, your payments, or your purchases. If we are obligated to pay or collect Taxes on the Fees you’ve paid or will pay, you are responsible for such Taxes, and we may collect payment for such Taxes. In the event of in-world payments for goods or services within Second Life, there are no taxes applied or added on our part.
  • Payment.*** If your payment fails or if Paid Services are otherwise not paid for or paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may revoke your access to our Services in general.
  • Automatic Renewal.*** To ensure uninterrupted service, recurring Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any Taxes). By default, your Paid Services will be renewed for the same interval of time as your original subscription period. For example, if you purchase an annual plan, you will be charged each year for the following 12-month period. We may charge your account up to one month before the end of the subscription period. It is your responsibility to make sure you are checking your email (including any spam or other filters) or in-world notifications in order to receive any reminder email or notification we send to you in advance of renewal. The date for the automatic renewal is determined automatically based on the date of the original purchase and cannot be changed. You can view your renewal date by visiting your account information with us. For more information about how CG Productions subscriptions work, please see our Manage Purchases, Renewals & Cancellations support page at if one is available for such services.
  • Cancelling Automatic Renewal.*** You can manage and cancel your Paid Services at the respective Service’s location. For example, you can manage all of your Services through your account in Second Life. To cancel a Service, go to your account in SL, find the service you wish to cancel, then follow the instructions to "cancel the Service". You must repeat this process for each Service you wish to cancel.
  • Fee Changes.*** We may change our fees at any time, or start charging fees for Services that were previously free. When applicable, we may give you advance notice of the fee changes. If you don’t agree with the fee changes, you must cancel your Paid Service.
  • Refunds.*** While you may cancel a Paid Service at any time, refunds are issued in our sole discretion, unless otherwise required by applicable law.

b. Fees Collected by Clients

  • Fees Paid to Clients. Clients may choose to sell items (goods, content, services, etc.), offer subscriptions for their Services at specific price points and intervals, or simply collect payments. Please note that we are not involved in a Client's subscription details, or a Client's store operations (including the quality, timing, pricing, or legality of what may or may not be included in exchange for payment, or any goods or services purchased). If you purchase items or subscriptions from a Client, your purchase is directly from the Client owner, who is solely responsible for the items sold. Please contact the Client owner if you have any questions or complaints.
  • Automatic Renewal. Any recurring payments you make to a Client/ service owner (such as a rental agreement) may be automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel your agreement before the end of the applicable renewal period, it will automatically renew. Your recurring payments will be renewed for the same interval of time as your original agreement period. For example, for an annual renewal schedule for your Land Tier, you may be charged each year. You can view your renewal date by visiting your Client Owner.
  • Cancelling Automatic Renewal of Services. You can manage and cancel your Servicesns in your account settings. Find the automatically renewing payment you wish to cancel, then follow the instructions to cancel. You must repeat this process for each Service you wish to cancel.
  • Refunds. We are not responsible for refunds for fees paid to a Client/owner because those transactions are between Client/owners and their users. If you would like to request a refund for any fees paid to a Client/owner, please contact the Client/owner. If you have a complaint regarding a website owner, you can find the appropriate section in the Second Life Help Section at https://support.secondlife.com/.
