Does the free month trial have full access?
This free month provides full access to the Paid tier subscriptions. This includes all of the capabilities of the data product you've started the subscription for.
You do not need to do anything to claim your first month free, this happens automatically within our billing system.
When will I be charged? Do I need to cancel my subscription?
Once your free month has ended, you'll be charged in advance for the next month.
Our monthly subscriptions automatically renew. This will occur on the same day of the month, each month.
For example, if you start a World API subscription on 14 March, you won't be charged until 14 April (for the next month of access).
If you'd like to cancel your subscription and trial access to our products free of charge, you'll need to cancel at least 24 hours ahead of the billing date.
