5.2 We grant You a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the content (except where You are sponsor or gifting a subscription) for which You have paid all required fees, solely for Your personal, non-commercial purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with the particular content or feature of our Services.  All other uses are expressly prohibited.

5.3 You grant to Ballet Class and a non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide, fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, disclose and modify the names, words or phrases submitted by You for the purposes of creating Your account.  This includes where You provide us with the email address and name of an individual You wish to gift a subscription to; it is your responsibility to check that You are authorised to do so.

6. PAYMENTS, BILLING, CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

6.1 Subscriptions. We offer a subscription-based service which can be purchased from the Website – for Your personal use or if You are sponsor or gifting a subscription, for Your sponsee’s/gift recipient’s personal use. All purchases through the Website, whether or not via a sponsor, are governed by these Terms.  Please note that if You wish to be a sponsor or gift a subscription, You can only purchase the annual subscription plan. Your subscription term starts from the date Your payment is received or, if You are a gift recipient, at the date Your link is activated, or, if You are a sponsee, on the date payment is allocated to Your account.

6.2 Automatic billing. By signing up to a subscription plan, including for the benefit of a sponsee/gift recipient, You agree to automatic billing to be deducted from the payment form You provided to us and agree to pay the charges made to Your account in connection therewith. Except in the case of one-off purchases, Your subscription and regular billing of Your account will continue indefinitely unless cancelled by You by following the steps described in section 6.3.  You must pay for the products before You (or Your sponsee or gift recipient) can download them.  

6.3 Non-refundable. Subject to section 7.3(b), payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds for partially used periods. You may cancel a recurring subscription at any time for any reason.  To cancel Your recurring subscription, go to the user account page in Your account and click the button for cancellation. If You cancel Your subscription before the end of the current subscription period, we will not refund any subscription fees already paid to us. Following a cancellation, however, You will continue to have access to the Service through the end of Your current subscription period. Please note that if You are a sponsor or gifting a subscription, You are committing to a non-recurring annual subscription which cannot be cancelled during the subscription term as this  will affect Your sponsee’s/gift recipient’s ability to continue to have access to the content and use of the Service.  

6.4 Payment methods: You can use ApplePay, Google Pay, PayPal and payment by credit and debit cards, along with any other payment methods we may accept from time to time. We may use www.stripe.com, a third party service provider to process the payments, or other providers from time to time.  You agree to the terms and conditions for use of those providers and understand that they would be solely responsible for the security, privacy, and processing of those transactions.  You expressly authorise us to charge the credit or debit card or other payment form provided each recurring billing period. If You are a sponsor, Your payment for the benefit of your sponsee will be taken by us once You are matched with a sponsee.  If You are gifting a subscription, Your payment will be taken by us immediately – this is not a recurring payment.  If You provide a payment method that results in overdraft, chargeback, or other fee from Your bank, You alone are responsible for that fee.

6.5 Suspension/termination for non-payment. When You make a purchase, You agree not to use an invalid or unauthorised payment method. If we are unable to process payment through the payment method we have on file for You, or if You file a chargeback disputing charges made to Your payment method and the chargeback is granted, We may suspend or terminate Your subscription.  If Your payment method fails and You or Your sponsee/gift recipient still get access to the content You are subscribing to, You agree to pay us the corresponding fees within ten (10) days of notification from us. We reserve the right to disable access to any content for which we have not received adequate payment.

6.6 Price increases. We reserve the right to change our subscription plans or adjust pricing for our Services at our sole discretion. Any price changes or changes to Your subscription will take effect following notice to You, except as otherwise required by applicable law. Your continued use of the Service after the price change becomes effective constitutes Your agreement to pay the changed amount.  PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU HAVE AGREED TO THE SOLOIST MEMBERSHIP, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT USE THE SUBSCRIPTION OR ACCESS THE WEBSITE, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY REGULAR FEES UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION OR IT IS OTHERWISE TERMINATED. SUBJECT TO SECTION 7.3(b), NO REFUNDS WILL BE MADE IF YOU DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE WEBSITE OR SUBSCRIBED FOR CONTENT.

6.7 Temporary break. If You need to take a temporary break from Your subscription plan for any reason, You can action a break at any time by going to Your user accounts page and clicking the pause button. If You are a monthly subscriber, by actioning a pause You will lose content from the following month after Your payment date. If You are an annual subscriber, You will continue to have access to the content You subscribed to before the date of Your pause for the remainder of Your annual subscription (for example, if Your annual payment is collected on the 17th July, You will continue to have access up until 16th July).   You can then resume Your subscription at any time by logging in to Your user accounts page and clicking the “resume” button.  Please note that if You are a sponsor or gifting a subscription, the temporary break option will not be made available to You, applicable as this will affect Your sponsee’s/gift recipient’s ability to continue to have access to the content and use of the Service.   

6.8 What to do if You think the subscription amount is wrong. If You think the amount charged to You is wrong, please contact us at [email protected] promptly to let us know.

7.1 How to tell us about problems. If You have any questions or complaints about the product, please contact us. You can write to us at [email protected].
