If you subscribe with Paypal, updates can be made via the Paypal portal.

4.3 Automatic  Renewal.
If your payment method expires and you do not edit your payment method information or cancel your account, your service will automatically renew without prior notice to you, using the details of your previous payment. You must cancel your service before it renews in order to avoid us billing your account. However, where there are insufficient funds in your account, the subscription will terminate after a 5-day grace period.

As used in these Terms of Use, "Billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of your subscription period, and on each monthly renewal thereafter unless and until you cancel your subscription or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms.
To see the commencement date for your next renewal period, go to the billing information section on Your Account page. We automatically bill your payment method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription. However, if you change your Payment Method, this could result in changing the calendar day upon which you are billed.

In the event your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your payment method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying subscriber on January 31, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your subscription plan, and changes in applicable taxes and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts.

All fees and charges are non-refundable including refunds for partial months and movies not watched. Very rarely, if there are special circumstances where IMVBox determines it is appropriate (e.g. the IMV Plus service is unavailable for days due to technical difficulties and bearing in mind IMVBox is live 95% of the year), we may provide credits to affected subscribers(for example, we may credit additional days of service to your account). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at IMVBox's sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle anyone to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances. 

4.4 Cancellation.
You can cancel your subscription at anytime however, WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR PARTIAL MONTHS OR WHERE THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE HAS NOT BEEN UTILISED, but you will continue to have access to IMV Plus for the remainder of your subscription period. You must cancel your subscription 72 hours before it renews each month in order to avoid the next month's billing. We will bill the monthly subscription fee plus any applicable taxes to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). To see the commencement date for your next renewal period refer to your email invoice from Support@imvbox.com.
