2018 Amendment to California’s Auto-Renewal Law Adds New Requirements For Promotional Offers and Cancellation Mechanisms
Often cited as one of the most aggressive efforts to curb automatically recurring charges to consumers, California’s Auto-Renewal Law (Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code § 17600 et seq.) has become a popular tool for both plaintiff’s lawyers and government regulators. The California Auto-Renewal Law (“ARL”) applies, with limited exceptions, to any arrangement in which a paid subscription or purchase agreement is automatically renewed until the consumer cancels.
