why credit card info if only trying the free period?

Why does it say free on IMDbpro if you leave your credit card number, than they can still activate it after the 14 days period??
I want to try it but I don't want IMDb to know my credit card information before i'm satisfied

The trial subscription is free of charge; if you don't want to continue, you can cancel and the card will not be charged (there's no need to wait until the end of the trial period: you can cancel anytime during the trial and the account will remain functional for the full 2 weeks).

We ask for a valid active credit card for a number of reasons, including:


  • It can help confirm the user's identity when uploading photos or other content to be attached to a filmography page
  • it prevents multiple sign-ups for trial memberships
  • it ensures that the user has a valid payment method for the subscription (we only accept credit cards as payment)
