    the Subscription Products provided on Alaaqat.com, as part of the Service, are subject to the following terms:

    Prices, descriptions or availability of Products are outlined in the respective sections of Alaaqat.com and are subject to change without notice.

    While Products on Alaaqat.com are presented with the greatest accuracy technically possible, representation on Alaaqat.com through any means (including, as the case may be, graphic material, images, colors, sounds) is for reference only and implies no warranty as to the characteristics of the purchased Product.

    Any steps taken from choosing a Product to order submission form part of the purchasing process. Users must choose the desired Product and verify their purchase selection. After having reviewed the information displayed in the purchase selection, Users may place the order by submitting it.

    When the User submits an order, the following applies:

    The submission of an order determines contract conclusion and therefore creates for the User the obligation to pay the price, taxes and possible further fees and expenses, as specified on the order page.
    In case the purchased Product requires active input from the User, such as the provision of personal information or data, specifications or special wishes, the order submission creates an obligation for the User to cooperate accordingly.

    2.3 PRICES
    Users are informed during the purchasing process and before order submission, about any fees, taxes and costs  that they will be charged.

    Unless specified, Prices are displayed exclusive of any applicable fees, taxes and costs, depending on the section the User is browsing.

    The Company, in its sole discretion and at any time, may modify the Subscription fees. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Subscription period. The Company will provide Users with reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fees.

    The continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect shall constitute an agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.

    2.4 REFUNDS
    Except when required by law, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable.  There will be no refunds or credits for partial periods of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for service periods unused.

    Certain refund requests for Subscriptions may be considered by the Company on a case-by-case basis and granted at the sole discretion of the Company.

    The Company may offer discounts or provide special offers for the purchase of Products. Any such offer or discount shall always be subject to the eligibility criteria and the terms and conditions set out in the corresponding section of Alaaqat.com.

    Offers and discounts are always granted at the Company’s sole discretion. Repeated or recurring offers or discounts create no claim/title or right that Users may enforce in the future.

    Depending on the case, discounts or offers shall be valid for a limited time. If an offer or discount is limited by time, the time indications refer to the time zone of the Company, as indicated in the Company’s location details in this document.

    Discounts can be based on Coupons. If breach of the conditions applicable to Coupons occurs, the Company can legitimately refuse to fulfill its contractual obligations and expressly reserves the right to take appropriate legal action to protect its rights and interests. Unless otherwise stated, these rules apply to the use of Coupons:

    Each Coupon is only valid when used in the manner and within the timeframe specified;
    A Coupon may only be applied, in its entirety, at the actual time of purchase – partial use is not permitted;
    Unless otherwise stated, single-use Coupons may only be used once per purchase and therefore may only be applied a single time even in cases involving recurring purchases;
    A Coupon cannot be applied cumulatively;
    The User is not entitled to any credit/refund/compensation if there is a difference between the value of the Coupon and the redeemed value;
    Unless otherwise specified, all discounts shall expire at the end of the first billing period.

    Information related to accepted payment methods are made available during the purchasing process. Some payment methods may only be available subject to additional conditions or fees. In such cases related information can be found in the dedicated section of Alaaqat.com.

    Payment methods marked accordingly are managed directly by the Company. In this case, the Company collects and stores the data necessary for the processing of payments and for fulfilling any legal obligation related to them. The User may read the privacy policy of Alaaqat.com to learn more about the data processing and Users’ rights regarding their data.

    Other payment methods – if any – are independently provided by third-party services. In such cases Alaaqat.com collects no payment information – such as credit card details – but only receives a notification from the relevant third-party provider once the payment has been successfully completed.

    If payment through the available methods fail, the Company shall be under no obligation to fulfil the purchase order. Any possible costs or fees resulting from the failed or refused payment shall be borne by the User.

    Subscriptions allow Users to receive a Product continuously or regularly over a determined period of time. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, Paid subscriptions begin on the day the payment is received by the Company.

    The Service or some parts of the Service are available only with a paid Subscription. You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis (such as monthly, quarterly or annually), depending on the type of Subscription plan you select when purchasing the Subscription.

    In order to maintain subscriptions, Users must pay the required recurring fee in a timely manner. Failure to do so may cause service interruptions.

    Subscriptions are automatically renewed through the payment method that the User chose during purchase, unless the User cancels the subscription within the deadlines for termination specified in the relevant section of these Terms and/or Alaaqat.com. The renewed subscription will last for a period equal to the original term.

    Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, the Company will issue an electronic invoice indicating that the User must proceed manually. The Company reserves the right to freeze User’s access to Alaaqat.com until any outstanding invoices have been paid.

    Recurring subscriptions may be terminated at any time by sending a clear and unambiguous termination notice to the Company using the contact details provided in this document, or — if applicable — by using the corresponding controls inside Alaaqat.com. Subscriptions may not be terminated prematurely and shall run out upon expiration of the subscription term.

    If the notice of termination is received by the Company before the subscription renews, the termination shall take effect at the end of the current period, otherwise the automatic renewal shall apply.

    Users may incur additional charges if the usage over the billing month exceeds their Subscription’s limit. The Subcription limits are detailed in the purchasing process and in the respective sections of Alaaqat.com. User agrees to pay any additional charges incurred at the end of each billing month.

    Any failure to make a payment of any Fees or taxes entitle the Company to suspend, in whole or in part, access to Services, until such payment is received. Unless otherwise stated in the Order Form, the Company shall assess and Customer shall pay a late fee equal to the lesser of 10% of the outstanding balance per month or the maximum rate / fee permitted by law in the jurisdiction where the User is located. Furthermore, upon any such failure all outstanding amounts shall become due and payable without further delay.

    Alaaqat.com Fees are exclusive of any charges that may be assessed by a Third Party (e.g.  Messaging Platforms) for access to or use of their services. Such charges shall be the responsibility of User, whether paid directly to the Third Party or whether such access is resold through Alaaqat.com, in which case Alaaqat.com shall advise User in writing as to the applicable charges and User shall have the right to accept such charges or decline them and not use the associated channel. In the event a Third Party imposes special requirements on Alaaqat.com beyond the standard services, then Alaaqat.com shall have the right to charge User for this additional service and User shall have the right to accept such charges or decline them and not use the associated channel.

    Users that have an active subscription may purchase single extra add-ons or features, described in the relevant section of Alaaqat.com or in the Order Form.

    Prices, duration, terms of use and termination of such extras may differ from those of the main Product and, unless otherwise specified, do not influence the prices, duration, terms of use and termination of the latter.

    The purchased service shall be performed or made available within the timeframe specified on Alaaqat.com or as communicated before the order submission. The performance of additional services are provided on the basis of payment.

    Except when required by law, the right of withdrawal does not apply on Alaaqat.com. Users acknowledge and accept that the right of withdrawal does not apply to contracts concluded over Alaaqat.com due to the nature of its offering.

    The User agrees to indemnify and hold the Company and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents, co-branders, partners and employees harmless from and against any claim or demand ⁠— including but not limited to lawyer's fees and costs ⁠— made by any third party due to or in relation with any culpable use of or connection to the Service, violation of these Terms, infringement of any third-party rights or statutory provision by the User or its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, co-branders, partners and employees to the extent allowed by applicable law.

    Unless otherwise explicitly stated and without prejudice to applicable statutory product liability provisions, Users shall have no right to claim damages against the Company (or any natural or legal person acting on its behalf).

    Unless damages have been caused by way of intent or gross negligence, or they affect life, health or physical integrity, the Company shall only be liable to the extent of typical and foreseeable damages at the moment the contract was entered into.

    In any event of liability, the compensation may not exceed the total payments that have been, will be or would be received by the Company from the User based on the contract over a period of 12 months, or the period of the duration of the Agreement, if shorter.

    Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain types of liabilities or limitations on applicable statutory rights, so some of the exclusions and limitations in these terms may not apply. But in such a case the exclusions and limitations set forth in this section shall be applied to the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law.

    6.1 NO WAIVER
    The Company’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any such right or provision. No waiver shall be considered a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.

    To ensure the best possible service level, the Company reserves the right to interrupt the Service for maintenance, system updates or any other changes, informing the Users appropriately.
