International Hair Institute may submit those charges for payment and you will be responsible for such charges. INTERNATIONAL HAIR INSTITUTE MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM YOU, UNTIL YOU AFFIRMATIVELY CANCEL YOUR SERVICE OR NOTIFY US THAT YOU WISH TO CHANGE YOUR PAYMENT METHOD.

If International Hair Institute does not receive payment from your Payment Method Provider, you agree to pay all amounts, which may include lesser amounts which International Hair Institute will charge to your Account up to what is due on your Billing Account upon demand.
Change in Amount Authorized. If the amount to be charged to your Billing Account varies from the current rate set forth in your initial offer due to an increase in our current rates (other than due to the imposition or change in the amount of state sales taxes), International Hair Institute shall provide notice of the amount to be charged and the date of the charge at least 10 days before the scheduled date of the transaction. Any agreement you have with your Payment Method Provider will govern your use of your Payment Method.
