Services are provided to the User pursuant to the Terms and Currency Media reserves the right to publish additional operating rules or policies from time to time.
Access to the Services
The User agrees to:
- provide all equipment, including a computer and modem or other supported device, necessary to establish a connection to the internet;
- arrange for the User’s own access to the internet and pay any telephone, line rental or other connection and service fees associated with such access;
- pay the Subscription Fees (the “Subscription Fees”) as set out in Schedule One (Payment Schedule).
The User agrees to pay Currency Media the Subscription Fees for its use of the Site and App and the Services based on the successful access of the User to the Site and App and the Services by the User through a maximum number of four computers or supported devices per account at the rates set out in Appendix One (Payment Schedule) including any applicable taxes.
Access to The Currency is limited to four devices per member. The device limit of four devices per member can only be exceeded with the written permission of Currency Media. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org setting out the circumstances where you require access on 5 or more devices.
Notwithstanding the Subscription Fees, Currency Media may run promotional offers from time to time which vary or temporarily waive or reduce the Subscription Fees for a fixed period of time. The terms of any such promotional offer shall be clearly set out or accessible in the promotional offer material. Following the expiry of the promotional offer, the Subscription Fees shall be payable by the User.
The User’s subscription shall continue until terminated. Save where the User notifies Currency Media in writing that the User is terminating the Agreement in accordance with the Suspension and Termination clause below at least three weeks prior to the renewal date, the User’s subscription shall be renewed automatically and the Subscription Fees shall be due as of the renewal date.
The Subscription Fees are exclusive of all credit card fees and merchant costs and the User agrees to indemnify Currency Media against all and any such charges.
The User must set up an account and submit accurate billing information in order to access the Site and App and the Services.
Currency Media reserves the right to alter the Subscription Fees set out in Schedule One from time to time by giving not less than seven days’ notice to the User within which period the User can notify Currency Media of its intention to terminate its usage of the Site and App and the Services in accordance with the provisions of the clause on Third Parties, Advertising and Linked Site and Apps below.
