(i) Commitment Offering. You commit in advance to purchase a specific quantity of Online Services for use during a Term and to pay upfront or on a periodic basis in advance of use.

Committed quantities not used during the Term will expire at the end of the Term.

c. Pricing and payment. Payments are due and must be made according to the Offer Details for your Subscription.
(i) For Commitment Offerings, the price level may be based on the quantity of Online Services you ordered. Some offers may permit you to modify the quantity of Online Services ordered during the Term and your price level may be adjusted accordingly, but price level changes will not be retroactive. During the Term of your Subscription, prices for Online Services will not be increased, as to your Subscription, from those posted on the APP at the time your Subscription became effective or was renewed, except where prices are identified as temporary in the Offer Details, or for Previews or third party provided services .
