4.4. Depending on the Subscription Plan you have purchased, charges will either be payable (a) as a single one-off payment without any further charges payable; or (b) as a single one-off payment followed by a recurring charge payable on a monthly, annual or other basis as specified on our Site (“Recurring Charges”).
4.5. Where the Subscription Plan you have purchased includes the payment of Recurring Charges:
