2. Terms for accessing Now Plus
The End User is required to have read and accepted the terms of this Agreement before the End User may access and use Now Plus. In order to use certain functions connected to Now Plus the End User is required to have an operating internet connection. The costs of the internet connection and / or mobile connectivity (including all data charges) shall be solely borne by the End User.
3. Formation of contract
By clicking the "Sign-up" button when creating a Now Plus account the End User confirms that:
1. the End User is at least 18 years old, or that the End User has received the permission of its parent or fiduciary to enter into the Agreement;
2. all contact details as well as other information registered by the End User are true, accurate and complete;
3. that End User's residence is in one of the countries in which the Provider provides Now Plus ;
4. the End User will update such information in order to maintain its accuracy; and
5. the End User accepts the terms comprised in the Agreement.
4. Purchase of Now Plus subscription
Access to Now Plus is granted when the End User accepts the terms of this Agreement and simultaneously commits to paying the fee that is payable in order to access Now Plus. The fee that is payable for Now Plus will be charged in accordance with the payment method chosen by the End User for the purchase. By registering its account card number (when paying with a credit or bank card) the End User confirms that it is authorized to carry out the purchase and confirms that it is the lawful holder of the card. The End User may choose between several different payment methods which are all described in more detail on the Now Plus Website.
Price changes may occur and in the event of any change in the price such change will be communicated to the End User before the changes are applied. Price changes will be applied at the earliest at the end of the period that the End User has already been charged for and will thus be applied only for a period that the End User has not yet paid for. Continuous usage of Now Plus by the End User after a price change will constitute as acceptance and consent to be charged at the new price. If the End User chooses to terminate his/her Now Plus subscription after such a price change, the Agreement may be terminated in accordance with section 17 of the Agreement.
To purchase and access Now Plus generally requires the End User to enter into a new subscription agreement. Such subscription agreement may provide for subscription to Now Plus on either a monthly, quarterly (every 3 months) or annual (every 12 months) basis. When the End User purchases a subscription via a payment method that allows for automatic and reoccurring payments (i.e. credit card) the payment will be charged automatically when the payment for the next period lapses.
All prices on the Now Plus webpage include VAT as well as all other fees and/or taxes.
The £0.99p for 3 months access offer is available from 1st January 2017 to 28th February 2017 for new customers only. If the subscription isn't cancelled before the end of your 3 month access your subscription will renew at £4.99 per month.
In-app subscriptions charged at £4.99 or £5.99 recurring every month are handled by Apple iTunes In-App purchase. If you take out a subscription in-app via iTunes and wish to cancel you will need to do so in the 'manage subscriptions' setting of your iTunes account.
5. The Now Plus Service
The key features of the Now Plus Service are:
(a) NOW Chart: A top 40 artist chart curated by the NOW team;
(b) Home of NOW: A selection of NOW curated playlists and back catalogue albums and tracks. The length of these playlists will be variable except those that have been customised by NOW, which will all be capped at fifty.
(c) My NOW: An End User may generate a customised NOW playlist based on genre filters, selected by the End User. Once a playlist has been generated, an End User can then customise it by removing the music the End User doesn’t like. New songs automatically replace the removed tracks.
(d) Saved Song: An End User may temporarily save up to 100 songs for offline listening (meaning that the End User does not require a data or WiFi connection). An End User may swap saved tracks on an unlimited basis during the period of the subscription.
NowPlus reserve the right to change the product features from time to time in its discretion.
6. Subscription and automatic renewal
An End User's monthly subscription will automatically renew for another month at the end of each month. This automatic renewal will always consist of one month regardless of the length of the previous subscription. In the case of an End User's quarterly subscription or the End User's annual subscription the End User's subscription will automatically renew for either a 3 month period or a 12 month period depending on the length of the subscription purchased.
Automatic renewal of an End User's subscription may be terminated in accordance with section 19 in the Agreement and such a termination must take place before the end of the subscription period.
The Provider reserves the right to modify the terms of the Now Plus subscription. All modifications will be communicated to the End User in good time before they are applied. Any modifications will at the earliest be applied from the period which the End User has not yet paid for. Continued use of Now Plus will be deemed consent of modifications to the terms in the subscription.
7. Cooling-off Period
The End User has the right to cancel his/her initial free month long trial period ("Trial Period") of Now Plus at any time during the Trial Period. At the end of the Trial Period the Provider may automatically start to charge the End User for subscription of Now Plus on the first day following the end of the Trial Period. The End User has the right to cancel any purchased subscription of Now Plus within 14 days of the purchase of the subscription to Now Plus ("Cooling-off Period") but only if the End User has not logged into or otherwise used Now Plus during the Cooling-off Period. The End User may invoke its right to cancel its subscription to Now Plus during the Cooling-off Period by writing to Now That’s What I Call Music LLP, 9 Derry Street, London, W8 5HY or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
