Your payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase. Your subscription will automatically renew at the same price each month or year 24 hours before the end of the current period, and your credit card will be charged through your iTunes account unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can turn off auto-renew at any time from your iTunes account settings. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription, where applicable.

At the end of purchase via iTunes, all of the stories you create and the audio recordings, photos, videos or text you attach to them will be uploaded and stored securely on our servers. While you have a valid subscription, you will also be able to share your stories with friends and family by e-mail by using the "Share Story" function.

As stated in the iTunes Terms of Services, there are no refunds and you may cancel auto-renewal at any time. Should you cancel your subscription, the stories you created on your device will remain on your device, but they will no longer be stored securely on our servers, and therefore, you will also no longer be able to share stories. All sales are final.

Such a simple, fun way to preserve the family stories I want to pass on to my grandchildren. Love how easy it is to make a story and share with loved ones if I want to.
