DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Registration and Access to the Service
- Access to the Service. In order to use the Service you must be 18 years of age
- Contracts for our Service. COMPANY is offering its services as individual downloads or as a bundle of credits for a defined number of individual downloads on a renewable subscription basis. Unless otherwise expressly indicated, no information presented in the Service or in connection with any products and services shall be deemed as a binding offer by COMPANY, but as an invitation for you to order. The contract for the ongoing Subscription Service between you and COMPANY shall begin when COMPANY, upon your request, has provided you with access to the Service (such access may be based on a personal username and password generated for that purpose or on other data that COMPANY deems sufficient for your identification). Access to the Service can be provided by delivering to you downloadable mobile entertainment content of the content category you subscribed to (e.g. by delivering a ringtone or an info news - SMS) or by enabling you to download the product (e.g. by delivering a WAP-Push link or a PIN for download of the downloadable mobile entertainment content on COMPANY website) or by providing access to the mobile entertainment content (e.g. by enabling MSISDN for this product). The subscription period is one week or one month depending on the type of the subscription contract. The Subscription contract and the subscription period will be renewed each week or month as applicable and a new subscription fee shall become due for the new subscription period. The subscription contract shall remain in effect until terminated and/or canceled by you or COMPANY according to Section 8 of these Terms. Contracts for the products and services of COMPANY and independent third parties which are made available through the Service shall begin when COMPANY or the third party has accepted your order for the same or has provided you with the product or service pursuant to your order. The contract will remain in effect until terminated by you or Company according to Section 8 of these Terms.
The subscription contracts include a certain defined number of credits which entitle you to download, receive and/or access that defined number of individual downloads of mobile entertainment content for a flat fee. After entering into your subscription contract, every month COMPANY will transfer download credits to your account. The type and number of credits you are entitled to is dependent on the type of subscription you choose. The provision of credits and the making available of the possibility to download, receive and/or access mobile entertainment content is offered for a flat fee. The flat fee shall become due every week/month your subscription contract is valid irrespective of whether or not you actually download any content during any particular subscription period; the consideration for the flat fee shall solely be the provision of the right to download, receive and/or access downloadable mobile entertainment content, in other words the making available of the respective download-, WAP- and SMS service credits. The number of credits for downloads shall be reduced by actual downloaded mobile entertainment content, in other words the download of mobile entertainment content is evaluated as redemption of one or more credits and thereby reduces the total number of downloadable mobile entertainment content you are entitled to download, receive and/or access with your subscription contract during that particular subscription period. Depending on the type of your subscription contract, if you do not use/redeem all your credits within the subscription period (1 week or 1 month), the unused credits will either (a) be rolled over into the next subscription period and remain in your account until used/redeemed or until expiration or termination of your subscription contract or (b) will expire at the end of the respective subscription period. If you download mobile entertainment content in excess of the amount allowed by your selected subscription contract, then you agree to pay the applicable COMPANY retail rate for such additional downloads.
Credits can only be used to download mobile entertainment content offered by COMPANY.
If you purchased your COMPANY product in a store or directly from COMPANY or a third party, the contract shall be deemed concluded at the time of the purchase of the product.
