Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

815 ILCS 601/5

    (815 ILCS 601/5)
    Sec. 5. Definitions. In this Act:
    "Automatic renewal offer terms" means the following clear and conspicuous disclosures:
        (1) that the paid subscription or purchasing
agreement will continue until the consumer cancels;
        (2) the timeframe in which the consumer must cancel
in order to avoid being charged for a subsequent term;
        (3) the recurring charges that will be charged to
the consumer's credit or debit card or payment account with a third party as part of the automatic renewal contract, and that the amount of the charge may change, if that is the case, and the amount to which the charge will change, if known;
        (4) the length of the automatic renewal term or that
the service is continuous, unless the length of the term is chosen by the consumer; and
        (5) the minimum purchase obligation, if any.
    "Clear and conspicuous" means in larger type than the surrounding text, or in contrasting type, font, or color to the surrounding text of the same size, or set off from the surrounding text of the same size by symbols or other marks, in a manner that clearly calls attention to the language. In the case of an audio disclosure, "clear and conspicuous" means in a volume and cadence sufficient to be readily audible and understandable.
    "Contract" means a written agreement between 2 or more parties.
    "Parties" includes individuals and other legal entities, but does not include the federal government, this State or another state, or a unit of local government.
