Your download of the App is subject to the terms of service of the applicable App Store Provider.
The App is free to download, but in order to access the Content you will need to start a subscription or free trial. Your subscription or free trial will be registered against the account that you hold: (i) with the App Store Provider; or (ii) if you have opted in to receive access to the Content as part of an offer from a telecommunications or entertainment service provider (“Service Provider”), with the Service Provider. Further details of the free trials and the subscriptions that we offer, and how payment is taken in respect of a subscription, are set out in sections 4 and 5 below.
If any of the information provided in respect of the account you hold with the App Store Provider or the Service Provider is untrue, not current or incomplete we or they may suspend or terminate your access to the App and Content.
You are responsible for keeping any passwords and other account details secret. You will be responsible for all activity that occurs under your account by another person if you fail to take reasonable measures to keep your account details secret. You agree to notify us immediately if you know of any unauthorised use of your account or any other breach of security and to exit from your account at the end of each session.
These security measures are important and we cannot take any responsibility for inconvenience, loss or damage you suffer as a result of failing to comply with them.
Once you have started a subscription or a free trial you will be able to access Content, although the Content accessible on the App will change from time to time.
Please note that when the App communicates with our servers, it sends and receives data that may be transferred over your mobile carrier's cellular network. You understand that you are responsible for any data charges according to your device's mobile carrier and service plan.
4. FREE TRIALS, SUBSCRIPTIONS AND PAYMENT
Note: If you have opted in to receive access to the Content as part of an offer from a Service Provider the terms of this section do not apply to you. Please see section 5 below instead.
New users of the App may be eligible for a free trial, of a duration specified to new users at the point of subscription. Please note that if you have at any time held a subscription you will not be eligible for the free trial. Each user is only eligible for one free trial.
If you are eligible for a free trial, the free trial period will start when you download the App and choose to start your subscription and end at the expiry of the free trial.
Unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial, you will automatically start a paid subscription at the end of the free trial period and your payment method will automatically start to be billed for the periodic subscription fee (as further set out below). We will NOT notify you once your free trial comes to an end and you begin to be billed.
App Store Paid Subscriptions
You can gain access to the Content by paying a periodic subscription fee at the current price set out in the App to the App Store Provider (the “App Store Subscription Fee”). Please note that the App Store Subscription Fee may be varied from time to time.
The App Store Subscription Fee is inclusive of VAT and any applicable sales taxes.
Payment of App Store Subscription Fee
When you pay the App Store Subscription Fee, you will be paying the App Store Provider and not us directly. Your payment of the App Store Subscription Fee is subject to these Terms and the App Store Providerâ€™s terms and conditions.
Payment for the App Store Subscription Fee will be taken by the App Store Provider from the payment method that you have registered against your account held with the App Store Provider.
The provider of your chosen payment method may charge you additional charges on top of the App Store Subscription Fee. You should ask your payment method provider for further details.
If you wish to change your payment method you will need to do so through the App Store Provider.
5. CUSTOMERS WITH AN OFFER FROM A SERVICE PROVIDER
Note: A customer who has opted in to receive access to the Content as part of an offer from a Service Provider shall be referred to as a “Service Provider Customer”. If you are not a Service Provider Customer, the terms of this section do not apply to you. Please see section 4 above instead.
As a Service Provider Customer you may be eligible for a free trial offered by the Service Provider. Any such free trial shall be subject to your contract with the Service Provider.
You can gain access to the Content by paying a periodic subscription fee to your Service Provider at the current price set out in the App or offered by your Service Provider (the “Service Provider Subscription Fee”). Please note that the Service Provider Subscription Fee may be varied from time to time.
Payment of Service Provider Subscription Fee
When you pay for the Service Provider Subscription Fee, you will be paying your Service Provider and not us directly. Your payment of the Service Provider Subscription Fee is subject to your contract with the Service Provider.
6. CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
You may cancel your subscription at any time. To do so, you will need to contact (i) the App Store Provider or, (ii) if you are a Service Provider Customer, the Service Provider. Please see the App Store Providerâ€™s terms or your contract with the Service Provider (as applicable) for further details as to the steps that you need to take to do so. We are not responsible for any charges you may incur where you have not cancelled your subscription with the App Store Provider or the Service Provider (as applicable) correctly.
Once you cancel your subscription you will continue to have access to the Content until the end of the period that you have paid for. You will cease having access to the Content from the end of such period.
Under law, you have an additional legal right to cancel certain contracts and claim a refund after 14 days after entry into such a contract, however you acknowledge that, by downloading the App and registering/verifying your account, you agree that we can start to provide the Content to you immediately and by doing so you acknowledge that you lose this additional right to cancel and obtain a refund.
All subscription fees are non-refundable and in no event will you be eligible for a refund for any partial subscription period.

13. NO WAIVER
No waiver of any rights by either you or us will be taken as a waiver of any other rights you or we may have. For example if we waive our rights to complain about a particular breach of these Terms by you it does not prevent us from complaining about other breaches.

We shall do our best to resolve any disputes between us. Any disputes shall be subject to the laws of England and Wales and subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. However, if you reside elsewhere in the European Union, you still have the benefit of any applicable rights under the laws of, and the right to bring an action before the courts of, your country of habitual residence.
