Re: Automatic extension of trial subscription by Mobility

However, considering that I had taken a Trial subscription, converting it to a full one without explicit consent seems to be a borderline unethical practice to me.
The annals of English Forum are well-populated with similar tales, and basically the conclusion is always the same - read the small print _before_ you sign up for a free trial.

It's fairly common practice, not just in Switzerland, and basically you won't have a leg to stand on. You signed the contract, the onus was on you to understand it and cancel it in line with the conditions, otherwise you have already agreed to the year's membership.

Pretty much any internet subscription 'free trial' works like this, for example. Free, but needing a credit card, is always a giveaway for them...
