Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to common questions we receive.

You can also directly contact our Subscriber Center here.

If I use more than one computer (e.g. home and office), do I need to purchase two digital subscriptions, or can others in my household use the same account?

You will be able to log into all of your devices at home or work with your subscription.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

You may cancel your subscription at any time.

  • For digital-only subscribers that cancel, we will stop charging your account the following billing cycle on the 20th of each month.
  • If you cancel a subscription that spans more than 30 days (e.g. annual subscriptions), you are entitled to a pro-rata refund for all unused months of your subscription.
  • Subscriptions that span 30 days or less (e.g. monthly subscriptions) and donations are non-refundable unless canceled within 24 hours of purchase.

My credit card statement reflects a charge from Sound Circulation. Why is that?
