Apple updates iTunes terms for In-App Subscriptions

Apple has updated its iTunes Store Terms of Service to reflect the new In-App Subscriptions option, debuting in News Corp.‘s The Daily newspaper. A notice at the top of the new terms notes that “[a] new ‘In-App Subscriptions’ section has been added to the Terms and Conditions to explain how in-app subscriptions auto-renew, how the auto-renewal can be managed and turned off, and that we may require permission to provide personal information to the Licensor for marketing purposes which, if declined, will not affect your purchase.” Specifically, the section notes that subscriptions are non-refundable, and will “automatically renew for the applicable time period you have selected, and your Account will be charged no more than 24 hours prior to the expiration of the current Paid Subscription.” Users will be able to cancel automatic renewal by going to a new “Manage App Subscriptions” section of their account, and the auto-renew feature is turned off automatically should the publisher increase the price of the subscription.
