    2. YAHOO! MAIL PREMIUM MAILBOX REGISTRATION.

    In order to sign up for Yahoo Mail Premium Mailbox, you must have an existing Yahoo Mail account. You must also have a Yahoo Wallet, which will save your credit card, billing and shipping information. If you do not have a Yahoo Wallet, you will be prompted to complete the registration process for Yahoo Wallet prior to purchasing Yahoo Mail Premium Mailbox. You agree (a) that the credit card number and other information you provide on Yahoo Wallet is valid, accurate, current and complete and (b) to maintain and promptly update that information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Yahoo has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Yahoo has the right to terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future access to or use of the Service.

    3. PAYMENT TERMS.

    Your credit card will automatically be charged the current fee for the Service on the date that you click on the "Purchase Order" button in the ordering process. Your credit card on file will also automatically be charged the then-current fee for that Service at the commencement of each renewal year. Fees may not be credited towards other services. Current fees will be posted at Yahoo Mail in the Options section. Please note, unless Yahoo provides express notice otherwise, payment for the Service is non-refundable.

    4. TERM AND TERMINATION.

    4.1 The Service is provided on a year-to-year basis commencing on the date that you sign up for or upgrade the Service. The Service will automatically be renewed on the anniversary of that sign-up date each year. If you choose to cancel the Service, then your cancellation will take effect immediately and your Yahoo mailbox will revert to the storage size of a free Yahoo mailbox. You will receive a partial refund based on the number of days between the anniversary date of your sign up for Premium Mailbox and your cancellation date. Please note, new emails will not be delivered to you until you have reduced your Yahoo mailbox to the storage size of a free Yahoo mailbox.

    Special note for those who signed up for Yahoo Mail Premium Mailbox prior to August 7th, 2000: If you signed up for Yahoo Mail Premium Mailbox prior to August 7th, 2000, the Service will not automatically be renewed at the end of your current year of Service. You will have the opportunity to renew the Service at the then-current fees. After you have chosen to renew, the Service will then automatically renew for subsequent years.

    4.2 Yahoo may, but has no duty to, immediately terminate the Service if Yahoo in its sole discretion concludes that you have provided false information in connection with your Yahoo Wallet, are engaged in fraudulent or illegal activities, or are engaged in activities that may damage the rights of Yahoo or others.

    4.3 In addition, Yahoo may immediately terminate the Service for any failure to follow the Agreement by you. Termination of the Service may result in the deactivation or deletion of your Yahoo Mail account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all files you have accrued in your Yahoo mailbox. If your credit card is invalid for any reason or Yahoo does not receive payment for the Service, your Service will be downgraded to the storage size of a free Yahoo mailbox.

    5. RESERVATION OF RIGHTS

    Yahoo Mail Premium Mailbox and its benefits are offered at the discretion of Yahoo, and Yahoo has the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service, in whole or in part for any reason, at its sole discretion, with or without notice to you.
