We will take the Renewal Subscription Fee from the payment method you used for the Initial Subscription Fee if available or such other payment details you specify in your Fragrance Direct account. If we are unable to take the Renewal Subscription Fee we may at our discretion terminate some or all of the Benefits with immediate effect.
