We may also be required by Applicable Laws to tell regulators or government authorities about a breach of the Agreement and help them in any investigation.
5. Ambassador Services Fees
To access our Ambassador Services and to become an Ambassador Subscriber you will have to pay a recurring Ambassador Services Fee of €2.99 per Subscription Period for the entire Subscription Duration, in respect of each Ambassador to which you subscribe to. The Ambassador Services Fee is due on the first day of each Subscription Period.
By subscribing to an Ambassador, you expressly authorize Shares to deduct the Ambassador Services Fee from your Electronic Money Account on the first day of each Subscription Period for as long as you remain an Ambassador Subscriber.
If we can’t take an Ambassador Services Fee when due from your Electronic Money Account for any reason (for example, because the balance of your Electronic Money Account does not allow it), we will ask you to deposit a sufficient amount in your Electronic Money Account. If you don’t do this within 5 calendar days from us notifying you of such failed payment, we may suspend or terminate your access to the Ambassadors Services and our agreement under these Ambassador Terms.
Additional third-party connection fees outside of our control may apply at the discretion of any third-party operator in addition to the Ambassador Services Fees.
You are responsible for paying any taxes or other relevant costs (including potential third party connection fees referenced above) that we are not responsible for collecting from you.
6. Duration, cancellation and termination
Duration of these Ambassador Terms
These Ambassador Terms will come into effect on the Effective Date, for an initial duration of one (1) month (“Initial Term”) and will automatically renew on a monthly basis for consecutive one (1) month periods (each being a “Renewal Term”), subject to the termination provisions of these Ambassador Terms and under the Agreement (as applicable).
By way of example if you have made the payment of your first Ambassador Services Fee on 15th February, the Initial Term will run from 15th February to 14th March inclusive and will automatically move into the first Renewal Term on 15th March, on which date the payment of the next monthly Ambassador Services Fee will become due and payable by you.
Termination by you
You may end your subscription in respect to a given Ambassador:
- at any time within the first fourteen (14) days of your Initial Term by unsubscribing within the Application. The termination of your subscription will take effect immediately and you will lose access to the Ambassador Services. We will provide you with a full refund of the Ambassador Services Fees paid for your Initial Term on your Electronic Money Account as soon as possible and in any event no later than fourteen (14) calendar days after the termination of your subscription. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Shares reserves the right to reject your request to terminate at any time within the first fourteen (14) days of having subscribed to an Ambassador, where your exercise of this right exceeds fair usage; and
- at any other time following the first fourteen (14) days of your Initial Term, by unsubscribing within the Application. The termination of your subscription will take effect at the end of the Subscription Period during which you unsubscribe. You will continue to benefit from the Ambassador Services until the termination is effective and we will not provide a refund of the Ambassador Services Fees paid for the Subscription Periods before the termination is effective.
Suspension and Termination by us
Shares may suspend and/or terminate your access to the Ambassador Services, in whole or in part, without liability:
- if Shares reasonably believes that you are in breach of: (a) the Applicable Laws; (b) these Ambassador Terms; or (c) any other terms of the Agreement;
- if Shares reasonably believes that providing you with the Ambassador Services exposes us to action or censure from any law enforcement, government or regulatory body;
- under exceptional circumstances, including without limitation if:
Your subscription to Ambassador Services may also be suspended or terminated, as applicable, if your User Account or Crypto-account is suspended or terminated in accordance with the App T&Cs or Crypto T&Cs, as applicable.
No suspension and/or termination of these Ambassador Terms by us shall entitle you to a refund of any Ambassador Services Fee(s).
Termination of these Ambassador Terms shall not affect any rights, obligations or liabilities of Shares which have accrued before termination or which are intended to continue to have effect beyond termination.
On termination of these Ambassador Terms for any reason, Shares will securely delete or destroy your Content, including the Personal Data, related to these Ambassador Terms in accordance with Shares’ data retention policies, as updated from time to time.
