COMPANY provides downloadable mobile entertainment content, such as ringtones, games, graphics, news and other information data as well as streaming services and online usable services through its on-line (World Wide Web) and SMS (Short Message Service) services to certain compatible mobile devices (the "Service"). The Service may also include access to products and services of independent third parties. After proper registration and payment, you will be permitted to download and use certain Products through the Service to compatible mobile phones and other compatible devices. 

2. Registration and Access to the Service

(a) Access to the Service. In order to use the Service you must be 16 years of age or have bill payer's permission. The contract is void where prohibited. In order to use the Service, you must also have a mobile communications subscription with a participating carrier or otherwise have access to a mobile communications network for which Company makes the Service available, and pay any service fees associated with any such access. In addition, you must provide all equipment and software necessary to connect to the Service, including, but not limited to, a mobile handset or other mobile access device that is in working order and suitable for use in connection with the Service. You are responsible for ensuring that your equipment and/or software do not disturb or interfere with Company's operations. Any equipment or software causing interference shall be immediately disconnected from the Service and Company shall have the right to immediately terminate this Agreement. If any upgrade in or to the Service requires changes in your equipment or software, you must effect these changes at your own expense. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new or additional features that augment or enhance the current Service, including the release of new products and services, shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

(b) Contracts for our Service. COMPANY is offering its services as individual downloads, as usage license for the time of the subscription term or as a bundle of credits for a defined number of individual downloads on a renewable subscription basis. Unless otherwise expressly indicated, no information presented in the Service or in connection with any products and services shall be deemed as a binding offer by COMPANY, but as an invitation for you to order. The contract for the ongoing Subscription Service between you and COMPANY shall begin when COMPANY, upon your request, has provided you with access to the Service (such access may be based on a personal username and password generated for that purpose or on other data that COMPANY deems sufficient for your identification). Access to the Service can be provided by delivering to your device downloadable mobile entertainment content of the content category you subscribed to (e.g. by delivering a ringtone or an info news - SMS) or by enabling you to download or use the product or service portal (e.g. by delivering a WAP-Push link or a PIN for download of the downloadable mobile entertainment content on COMPANY website) or by providing access to the mobile entertainment content (e.g. by enabling MSISDN for this product). The subscription period is one week or one month depending on the type of the subscription contract. The Subscription contract and the subscription period will be renewed each week or month as applicable and a new subscription fee shall become due for the new subscription period. The subscription contract shall remain in effect until terminated and/or canceled by you or COMPANY according to Section 8 of these Terms. Contracts for the products and services of COMPANY and independent third parties which are made available through the Service shall begin when COMPANY or the third party has accepted your order for the same or has provided you with the product or service pursuant to your order. The contract will remain in effect until terminated by you or Company according to Section 8 of these Terms.

The subscription contracts include a certain defined number of credits which entitle you to download, use, receive and/or access that defined number of individual downloads of mobile entertainment content for a flat fee. After entering into your subscription contract, - if necessary for the service usage - every interval COMPANY will transfer download credits to your account. The type and number of credits you are entitled to is dependent on the type of subscription you choose. The provision of credits and the making available of the possibility to download, receive, use and/or access mobile entertainment content is offered for a flat fee. The flat fee shall become due every week/month your subscription contract is valid irrespective of whether or not you actually download or used any content during any particular subscription period; the consideration for the monthly flat fee shall solely be the monthly provision of the right to download, receive and/or access downloadable mobile entertainment content, in other words the making available of the respective download-, WAP- and SMS service credits. The number of credits for downloads shall – if necessary for the service usage - be reduced by actual downloaded mobile entertainment content, in other words the download of mobile entertainment content is evaluated as redemption of one or more credits and thereby reduces the total number of downloadable mobile entertainment content you are entitled to download, receive, use and/or access with your subscription contract during that particular subscription period. Depending on the type of your subscription contract, if you do not use/redeem all your credits within the subscription period (1 week or 1 month), the unused credits will either (a) be rolled over into the next subscription period and remain in your account until used/redeemed or until expiration or termination of your subscription contract or (b) will expire at the end of the respective subscription period. If you download mobile entertainment content in excess of the amount allowed by your selected subscription contract, then you agree to pay the applicable COMPANY retail rate for such additional downloads.

Credits can only be used to download our use mobile entertainment content offered by COMPANY.

If you purchased your COMPANY product in a store or directly from COMPANY or a third party, the contract shall be deemed concluded at the time of the purchase of the product.
