The “Auto-Renewal Class” consists of: All persons in the United States who paid McAfee for the automatic renewal of a subscription license for any McAfee software (including software branded under the McAfee or Intel Security names) from January 10, 2010 to February 10, 2015, and whose first auto-renewal charge was at a price greater than the price paid to McAfee for the initial subscription license. The Auto-Renewal Class does not include any person whose charges as described above were fully refunded by McAfee or fully credited through such person’s credit or debit card issuer.
