5. SUBSCRIPTIONS

Connect.Hockey offers the following subscriptions:

  • Personnel

  • Group

Users will be able to access a free subscription or purchase a premium subscription. When a user makes the purchase of a subscription, Connect.Hockey will send a confirmation email. This confirmation email will be produced automatically so that the user has confirmation of the payment and the start of the subscription. If the user does not receive the confirmation email upon purchase and start of the subscription, it is possible that it has been sent to your spam folder.

Connect.Hockey may cancel the sale of any subscription and may change or discontinue the availability of subscriptions at any time at its sole discretion. If a subscription purchase is cancelled, the payment made for the subscription will be refunded in the applicable billing period. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Subscriptions include automatic recurring payments. You authorize Connect.Hockey to renew your subscription and to charge you periodically and progressively on each billing date. The subscription billing date is the date on which you purchase the subscription and make the first payment. On the corresponding billing date, you will automatically be charged the corresponding subscription fee. The subscription will remain active until you cancel it or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid the next billing period. We will bill you for the subscription billing fee in the payment method you choose during registration and subscription purchase.

Subscriptions will automatically renew for an additional period unless cancelled prior to the next billing period. To cancel subscriptions, users must submit a cancellation request through our contact information and the subscription will be cancelled for the next billing period. If a subscription is cancelled, the user may continue to use the platform payment features for the subscription until the next billing period, at which time the subscription and access to the platform payment features will be cancelled.

 

6. PAYMENTS

Subscriptions will be paid for through in-app purchases (Google Play and App Store). The subscription payment will be charged to your credit/debit card immediately after completing the subscription payment and registration process. The subscription will be activated upon completion of the payment and registration process and will be charged on each billing date automatically. Once the transaction is processed, we will send an electronic receipt to the user's email address. 

If you find any inconsistencies in your billing, please contact us via our contact details or you can make a complaint via the customer service of the relevant payment platform.

If your card is declined, you will receive an error message. No payment will be charged to your card and no order will be processed. There may be a pending transaction on your account until your card issuing bank withdraws the authorization. This usually takes 2 to 5 working days. Your card may be declined for a number of reasons, such as insufficient funds, AVS (Address Verification System) mismatch or you have entered an incorrect security code.

If your payment is declined, you will need to provide an alternative payment method or provide another card on which the payment can be charged and processed.

Your payment details will be treated and retained securely and for the sole purpose of processing the purchase of the subscriptions. Connect.Hockey reserves the right to engage any payment platform available on the market, which processes your data for the sole purpose of processing the purchase of the subscriptions.
