When your account with Professional package of service expires, your account will revert to the level you had beforehand. You will no longer have access to any premium features, and the expiration will have different effects on any premium features you have previously used.
Accounts with Professional package of service help keep LiveJournal in business. To show appreciation for users who have made contributions, a number of premium features are only available to users with accounts with Professional package of services.
Advertising is displayed on LiveJournal to certain account levels to support site operations and to ensure that there is an account level available to users free of charge. In exchange for viewing and displaying advertising, Account without additional packages of services gain features and storage space in a manner similar to accounts with Professional and Permanent package of service.
Account without additional packages of services provides access to LiveJournal's extra features for free, subsidized by advertising appearing on the LiveJournal system pages and the account holder's journal.
LiveJournal uses user-provided information to select the ads that appear for Account without additional packages of service users and most visitors to Account without additional packages of service journals. In particular, ads are displayed based on the user's gender, age, location, interests, or a small portion of public page contents. Ads are targeted according to information about the author, the viewer, and general demographics about LiveJournal as a whole.
