Subscriptions, Payments and Refunds
When you purchase a membership subscription you acknowledge that you have carefully considered the suitability of the membership plan you have chosen.

When you pay for membership of this website you will be redirected to a third-party payment provider. You are responsible for all costs associated with currency conversion, including any additional fees that your card provider may apply. Forza Excerpts has no control over conversion rates or bank fees.

Clarion and Altissimo membership is offered on an annual subscription basis with automatic renewal. Membership lasts for a period of 365 consecutive days from the date of payment, and is considered to be continuously active even if you do not visit or use the website on each and every day. Following successful renewal, membership then continues for a further period of 365 days.

Once you have made your first payment, and following any renewal payment, you are considered to have made use of your annual membership and will not be eligible for a refund. For the avoidance of doubt, Forza Excerpts does not offer refunds for any unused days during a membership year.

Forza Excerpts is sometimes able to offer discounted annual subscriptions through affiliations with third-party organisations. Should such a partnership terminate then it may no longer be possible to offer a continuation if a discounted price at the point of renewal. Please be reassured, however, that all annual subscriptions remain valid for a period of 365 days from the date of purchase.

Given the nature of digital content, a request for a refund of a purchase will not be granted automatically. All requests for a refund are considered on a case by case basis.

Refunds are only made to the original bank card used for the purchase. Please allow a reasonable amount of time for a refund to reach your bank account.
Subscription Cancellation and Account Deletion
Chalumeau members may delete their membership account at any time from the Membership Account page. This process cannot be reversed, and all data related to the account is permanently deleted.

Forza Excerpts reserves the right to delete Chalumeau accounts that are created but subsequently not used, or Chalumeau accounts that lie dormant for a period of 180 days or more.

Clarion and Altissimo members may cancel their membership subscription at any time. This cancels the membership renewal process, but does not delete the membership account in case there are days of membership still outstanding. If a Clarion or Altissimo member wishes to cancel a subscription and also permanently delete their account, they will need to cancel the subscription from the Membership Account page and then contact Forza Excerpts for further assistance
Suspension and Termination
Forza Excerpts reserves the right to suspend or terminate your membership account if you breach the terms of use set out on this page, or act in any way that causes harm to or problems for other members.

If your account is suspended or terminated you must not register for a new membership account.
