The following terms and conditions (the "Agreement") govern all use of the www.readle-app.com website (the "Site"), the mobile applications and the products and services available on or at the Site (taken together with the Site, the "Service"). The Service is owned and operated by A-Type Technologies GmbH ("A-Type"). The Service is offered subject to your (the "User's") acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time on the Site by A-Type. BY USING OR ACCESSING ANY PART OF THE SERVICE, YOU (the "User") AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED HEREIN; IF YOU NOT AGREE, DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE.
A-Type reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement at any time. It is User's responsibility to check this Agreement periodically for changes. User's continued use of the Service following the posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes acceptance of those changes.
If a term does not make sense to you, please let us know by sending an email to [email protected]
Changes to these Terms
We reserve the right to modify these Terms at any time. For instance, we may need to change these Terms if we come out with a new feature or for some other reason.
Whenever we make changes to these Terms, the changes are effective 24 hours after we post such revised Terms (indicated by revising the date at the top of these Terms) or upon your acceptance if we provide a mechanism for your immediate acceptance of the revised Terms (such as a click-through confirmation or acceptance button). It is your responsibility to check the Site for changes of these terms.
If you continue to use the Service after the revised Terms go into effect, then you have accepted the changes to these Terms. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the software and services provided in connection with the Service are solely for User's own personal use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party. A-Type may change, suspend or discontinue the Services, including the availability of any feature, database or content, at any time. A-Type may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict User's access to parts or all of the Services without notice or liability. A-Type reserves the right, at its discretion, to modify this Agreement at any time by posting a notice on the Site or by sending User a notice via email or postal mail. User shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Use of the Service by User following such notification constitutes User's acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as modified.
User certifies to A-Type that if User is an individual (i.e., not a corporation) User is at least 13 years of age (provided that, if User is located in a state in which 13 is under the age of majority, then User represents he/she has the legal consent of a legal guardian to enter this Agreement). User also certifies that User is legally permitted to use the Service and takes full responsibility for the selection and use of the Service. This Agreement is void where prohibited by law, and the right to access the Service is revoked in such jurisdictions.
Fees and Payment
The basic Service is free to users, but if User elects to upgrade to a subscription membership or any of our other paid features, the following terms below shall apply. A-Type reserves the right to change its prices at any time.
A. Billing and Payment
A-Type bills users through an online account for use of the Service. User agrees to pay A-Type all applicable Service fees using this online account. All fees are exclusive of applicable taxes (e.g. sales, use, or value-added tax), unless otherwise stated, and User is solely responsible for the payment of any such taxes that may be imposed on your use of the Service. A-Type may correct any billing errors or mistakes that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment. A-Type reserves the right to change its prices for certain Service features - and to institute new charges at any time - upon notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Site. User agrees to maintain current, complete and accurate information for User's billing account. In addition, User authorizes A-Type to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for User's credit or debit card as provided by User's credit or debit card issuer. All fees are final and nonrefundable (including in the event any features or functions of any service that User has subscribed to are changed, modified, diminished or removed). User shall be responsible for any applicable foreign transaction fees charged by User's bank.
B. Automatic Renewal
User's subscription to the Service will continue indefinitely until cancelled by User (via the cancellation mechanisms provided on the Site). After User's initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, User's subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price User agreed to when subscribing. User agrees that User's account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If User does not wish User's account to renew automatically, or if User wants to change or terminate User's subscription, please log in and go to the Change / Cancel Membership page. If User cancels a subscription, User may use such subscription until the end of then-current subscription term and the subscription will not be renewed thereafter. However, User will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period.
By subscribing, User authorizes A-Type to charge User's credit card, debit card or other payment method at such time and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period, including any sales or similar taxes imposed on User's subscription payments. Upon the renewal of your subscription, if A-Type does not receive payment, User agrees that A-Type may either terminate or suspend User's subscription and continue to attempt to charge User's payment method provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, User's account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, User's new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received). If User does not terminate User's subscription and/or if User continues to use the Service, User agrees that A-Type is authorized to charge the payment method in User's Service account. A-Type may also seek payment directly from User. Charges may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise specified when User initially subscribes to the Service.
The Site may permit User to link to other websites or resources on the Internet, and other websites or resources may contain links to the Site. These other websites are not under A-Type's control, and User acknowledges that A-Type is not responsible or liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness or any other aspect of such websites or resources. The inclusion of any such link does not imply endorsement by A-Type. User further acknowledges and agrees that A-Type shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any content, goods, information, or services available on or through any such website or resource.
