2. Terms and conditions of the subscription

a) Purchasing a subscription

You can purchase a Hopoti Plus subscription on our website Hopoti.com and in certain third-party services or stores.

When subscribing, you choose a more specific subscription type, such as a monthly subscription, annual subscription, or gift card.

If you are logged in to the Hopoti.com website when purchasing a subscription, Hopoti Plus subscription will be activated immediately to the user account to which you are logged in. Subscription activation means combining a Hopoti Plus subscription with a Hopoti user account.

If you are not logged in to the Hopoti.com website or if you visit a third-party service or store, you can purchase a Hopoti Plus subscription as a gift card. The gift card can be activated during its validity period for any user account on the Hopoti.com website.

You are responsible for your own Hopoti.com username and understand that you can manage your Hopoti Plus subscription only if you have logged in to Hopoti.com username activated to the subscription.

You agree not to impersonate any other person or to provide false information, including not to use another person's username, password or other account information or the name or likeness of another person, or to provide false information. You agree that we may take steps to ensure the accuracy of the information you provide.

You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized access, use or assignment of the Hopoti Plus subscription. Hopoti is not liable for any damages arising from unauthorized use of your account.

b) Paying for the subscription

Hopoti.com subscriptions purchased through the website use Stripe Payments Europe Ltd. ("Stripe") as the payment intermediary, which processes the payments and whose conditions may apply. Subscriptions placed through third parties may also be subject to the payment services and terms and conditions set by those third parties.

Stripe stores your payment information, such as your payment card number and expiry date, in its archives. You are responsible for keeping your payment information up to date by changing the information as necessary. If your information changes or is about to expire, we may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, obtain or receive updated payment information from your payment service provider, including your card number, expiration date and CVV code or equivalent. This allows us to continue to provide you with access to Hopoti Plus. You authorize us to continue to charge subscription fees to your card using updated information.

If the payment cannot be successfully confirmed due to card expiration, insufficient funds or other reasons, we may suspend or terminate the subscription by notifying you. You also agree that if your payment method is in Stripe's archives, we may charge the payment method of your choice if you decide to restart your Hopoti Plus subscription, unless you specify an alternative payment method when you start your subscription again.

You can check the payment information stored in Stripe's archive, as well as the subscriptions purchased with receipts and other additional information about your Hopoti Plus subscription, by visiting www.hopoti.com/plus. Log in to the user account for which you have activated the subscription. Press "View, edit or cancel subscriptions" to go to the subscription portal where this information is displayed.

c) Subscription and auto-renew

If you chose the Hopoti Plus subscription to be activated immediately, it includes enrolment in the continuous or periodic payment plan of your choice, such as a monthly or annual subscription.

Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the stated billing period, unless cancelled in accordance with the cancellation instructions below.

The payment will be charged to the payment method of your choice at the time of purchase confirmation and at the beginning of each new billing period, unless cancelled.

We reserve the right to change our pricing and notify you of any price change thirty (30) days in advance. If you do not want to accept the price change, you can cancel your subscription. If you do not cancel your subscription after the price change has taken effect and before the start of your new subscription period, your subscription will be renewed at the price in effect at the time of renewal without your separate action and you authorize us to charge these amounts to your chosen payment method.

You are responsible for all third-party internet fees and any other charges in connection with your use of Hopoti Plus.

d) Free trials

Your Hopoti Plus subscription can start with a free trial. The availability of a free trial is not guaranteed and if it is available, it is only available to those who have not previously used Hopoti Plus.

The first payment will be charged to the payment method of your choice immediately after the end of the free trial period, unless you cancel the subscription by following the cancellation instructions below.

You can cancel your subscription at any time before the end of your free trial. We provide notice of the terms and conditions of the free trial when you subscribe, but you will not receive a separate notification that your free trial period is about to expire or has expired, or that your paid subscription has begun.

e) Cancellation and refund policy

You can cancel your activated Hopoti Plus subscription at any time before the end of the current billing period or free trial period. The cancellation will take effect at the end of the billing period or free trial period.

To cancel your Hopoti Plus subscription, go to www.hopoti.com/plus and log in to the user account for which you have activated the subscription. Press "View, edit or cancel subscriptions" to go to the subscription portal, where you can confirm the cancellation of the subscription.

The cancellation will take effect after the end of the current billing period or your free trial period, and you will still be able to use Hopoti Plus until the billing period ends.

We do not refund or give back subscription fees for partially used billing periods.

You have the legal right to cancel your Hopoti Plus subscription or gift card purchase within fourteen (14) days from the date you originally purchased the subscription. You can exercise your right of withdrawal by sending a request to support@hopoti.com address, which request includes information about the termination of your subscription, the date of the subscription, the name of the subscriber and the subscriber's email address. To verify the request, an e-mail must be sent from the address at which the subscription was purchased. However, you acknowledge that by activating Hopoti Plus, you accept the immediate activation of digital content, services and functionalities, and if you start using them, you lose your right to cancel Hopoti Plus.

f) Subscription purchased through third parties

If you purchase a Hopoti Plus subscription or gift card through a third party, any terms and conditions set by the third party will also apply to that subscription.

The terms and conditions of the Hopoti Plus subscription agreement regarding the purchase, billing, cancellation, refunds and payment of a subscription do not apply to that subscription to the extent that the Hopoti Plus subscription agreement is in conflict with the applicable third party terms and conditions.

For subscriptions purchased through a third party, the billing relationship is established directly between you and that third party.

Upon termination of your Hopoti.com user account or Hopoti Plus subscription, either by Hopoti or at your request (other than when cancelling your subscription, in which case your subscription will continue until the end of the billing period), you will immediately lose the right to access Hopoti Plus.

5. Other terms and conditions

You acknowledge that Hopoti Software Oy, as the provider of the Hopoti Plus service, is the data controller and is responsible for the processing of your personal data in accordance with this subscription agreement, the “Terms of Service for Users" agreement and the "Privacy Policy" appendix, the EU General Data Protection Regulation and applicable legislation.

These Terms shall be governed by the laws of Finland without regard to its conflict of law provisions. These Terms do not limit the consumer's rights under mandatory legislation. If disputes related to these Terms cannot be resolved through negotiations between the parties, you can refer the matter to the Consumer Disputes Board by contacting the Consumer Advisory Services (https://www.kkv.fi/kuluttajaneuvonta/). If the dispute is brought before a court, the action must be filed in a district court located in Finland, in the jurisdiction of which you are domiciled or habitually resident, unless you wish to bring an action in a district court in whose jurisdiction the domicile of the service provider is domiciled.

Hopoti shall not be liable for delays, errors or damages caused by an impediment beyond Hopoti's reasonable control, which Hopoti cannot reasonably be expected to have taken into account at the time of the commitment and the consequences of which Hopoti could not reasonably have avoided or overcome. Such impediments include, for example, natural disasters, abnormal weather conditions, fires, earthquakes, terrorist acts, power or line outages, disruptions in Internet or other public network or telecommunications, information security attacks, strikes, industrial action or official orders. Industrial action is also considered force majeure when Hopoti is itself the target or a participant in it. Similar force majeure situations that have occurred to subcontractors are also considered force majeure.

Hopoti shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, or consequential damages or damages arising from the use or inability to use Hopoti Plus or material in the service or from these Terms, regardless of whether the damages are based on contract, infringement of rights, negligence or other grounds, even if Hopoti would have been announced in advance of the possibility of such damages. Hopoti is also not responsible for any errors, omissions or delays in the information contained in Hopoti Plus. Hopoti is not responsible for the deletion, loss or modification of any of your materials or for backing up such material. This section shall be applied to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. These Terms do not limit Hopoti's liability if the damage was caused intentionally or by gross negligence, or for death or personal injury, to the extent that applicable law would prevent such limitation, or for other liabilities that may not be limited or excluded under applicable law.
