• If your initial payment authorization is later revoked, your subscription, product, or access will be terminated. Contact Customer Service at 1-800-631-1040 if you believe your access was terminated in error.
• Unless specified otherwise in the Cancellations and Refunds section below, all charges are nonrefundable.

• All prices are in United States Dollars.
• Discount eligibility is determined at the time of the order. Discounts cannot be applied retroactively.

We will notify you of the error and give you the opportunity to cancel your order and obtain a refund if payment already has been made.
• You may choose to access additional products that are not included in your subscription price (“paid products”) – for example, content from the Newsweek Global Archives. If you access additional products, you will be responsible for paying any additional charges. Any additional charges will be clearly described during the order process.
• When you use your digital subscription on a mobile device or a computer, you may incur charges from your service provider, such as telecommunications fees or data fees. These fees are not included in your subscription, and you are responsible for paying them separately.

To view information about your billing cycle, visit the My Account section of Newsweek.com.

Billing for One-Time Purchases
• When you purchase a standalone product, including articles from the Newsweek Global Archives and gift subscriptions, we will charge or debit your payment method at the moment of purchase.

You may not otherwise assist third parties in accessing digital subscriptions or paid products on an unauthorized basis, including by sharing your access credentials or providing any content or other materials that you obtained through a digital subscription or as a paid product.
• You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your access credentials and for all usage or activity on your digital subscription accounts, including the use of your digital subscription by any family member authorized by you to use your access credentials. Such responsibility expressly includes any purchases made or other charges incurred on your credit card in connection with your use (or an authorized third party’s use) of a digital subscription or paid product.
• In the event of any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity relating to your digital subscription or paid products, we may, in our sole discretion, terminate those accounts and refer you to appropriate law enforcement agencies. You may be responsible for damages from any such fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity.
Mobile Access and Jurisdictional Availability
• Some components of digital subscriptions or other paid products may be accessible only using a particular kind of device – for example, an Apple iPad or an Amazon Kindle. You should investigate digital subscriptions or other paid products before you pay for access to them to ensure that they will work with your device because we will not refund any fees you paid if the digital subscription or paid product you ordered is not compatible.
• Certain components of digital subscriptions or paid products may not be available for use in every jurisdiction, and we will not refund any fees you paid if the digital subscription or paid product you ordered is not available.
