Trade Leaders are never charged for subscribing to their own strategies.
This exemption, however, does not mean that you will not get the automated emails reminding you to pay for your subscription fee. Because you are a subscriber, our billing software thinks that you should be charged so it will "remind" you that a charge is going to occur. The charge does not occur because we tell it not to, so it tries again. In short, you may see these repetitive emails in your Inbox but you can simply ignore them because you are subscribed to your own strategy for free.
Another upside to this is that you can AutoTrade your own strategy and not have to pay for your strategy subscription fee obviously.
