You may become a member of the Service free of charge. Free membership will only entitle you to participate in some of the features available as part of the Service and subject to change without further notice, including shutting down the Service for non-paying members completely. In order to access additional features, you must become a paying subscriber to the Service.Your use of those additional features is conditional upon the payment of the relevant fees and subject to change in accordance with the clauses set out below.

Subscription plans and fees

Subscription plans and their corresponding fees are located on the "Membership" page. These subscription fees are subject to change, which changes will be posted on the website and/or communicated to you by e-mail or private message via the Service.

Payment

Only Members with a valid subscription or otherwise on payment of a fee can access certain parts of the Service.

Subscriptions for Premium Membership can be acquired at the prices, for the periods and by the payment methods specified on the "Membership" page. Prices are stated in the currency shown on the upgrade membership page and include all applicable taxes unless otherwise stated.  The full amount payable for the subscription period chosen is charged upon acquisition of the Premium Membership.

After your initial membership period, your subscription will be automatically renewed for the same price and package length. By subscribing, you authorise us to charge your card now and upon each renewal. Your Payment method will continue to be periodically charged for the subscription for the price and time period you agreed to when subscribing. You can cancel your membership via your “My membership” details page.

Due to processing time from payment providers, please note that any recurring card payments will take effect before your membership expires. Recurring bank payment solutions (iDeal, ELV etc.) will take effect within approximately 5 business days before your membership expires. Should you wish to cancel your automatic renewal, you need to contact customer service (or check our Help Centre for information regarding how to do it on the Website.) and request cancellation at least 7 calendar days before renewal date due to processing times. If a new membership cycle has begun after receiving such notice, that amount cannot be refunded.

Please note, if you previously have cancelled an automatic renewal, purchasing a new subscription will re-instate your automatic renewal as described above.

You must provide current, complete and accurate information to enable subscription fees to be charged correctly, which information must be updated regularly and is securely stored for your ease of payment. By purchasing our service you automatically authorise us to securely store your payment details which may only be used for the automatic renewal of your subscription.

Successful charging of renewal fees will ensure your account privileges are maintained at the level of the package being renewed.

In the case of automatic renewal charges being declined your account will be downgraded until the charge for renewal is accepted following which, the status of your account will be reinstated within 24 hours for the value of the charge successfully passed should this be less than the value of the original package being renewed.

We may at any time change our price for a subscription. If you currently are in a subscription period (and not in the initial signup period), the prices will take effect from the first calendar month after a notice of price changes has been sent to the email address provided by the user upon registration. You may terminate the Agreement if you do not accept the price increase.

By purchasing a Premium Membership, you authorize the Company to charge those fees on a recurring basis in accordance with your subscription plan and as detailed above.

The Company may, from time to time, make available to free Members trial periods of Premium Memberships.  Fees for such trial periods and payment methods, if any, will be indicated on the Website and/or the App on the page indicating such trial period.  Methods of cancellation of such trial periods will also be indicated on the said page.

The forty-eight (48) hour trial Premium Membership automatically renews to a fix six (6) month Premium Membership after forty-eight (48) hours.  The one (1) month trial Premium Membership automatically renews to a one (1) month Premium Membership.  Should you wish to cancel auto-renewal of any of these trial Premium packages, please contact our support team here or check our Help Centre for information regarding how to do it on the Website.

Where a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. In addition, you authorize us to obtain updated or replacement expiration dates and card numbers for your credit or debit card as provided by your credit or debit card issuer. The terms of your payment will be based on your Payment Method and may be determined by agreements between you and the financial institution, credit card issuer or other provider of your chosen Payment Method.

In the case of declined charges, for your convenience, we may opt, at our discretion, to charge the due fees in parts to assist in ease of payment through your chosen credit provider. However, the amounts shall not exceed in total the value of the package being renewed. For example, we may opt to charge the full amount of a twelve-month membership in two, six-month instalments or less. We may also opt to spread the charges over a period of time within the package pack, for example within the six-month period should you choose a six-month membership. At our discretion and to assist with ease of acceptance, such recharging may be delayed and affected at varying frequency.

In cases where fees are continuously declined, at our discretion, we may opt to contact you to assist you with payment of the outstanding funds and reactivation of your account. You are also invited to contact us on support@nextlove.com in the event of such case so we can expedite the resolution of such matters.
