RIGHT TO USE THE APP
Upon registration of your User Account and your acceptance of these Terms, we grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable, limited license to use the App on your device(s) in accordance with these Terms and any applicable Apple App Store or Google Play Store terms and conditions, for as long as you have a valid User Account with us.
Except as expressly granted in these Terms, you shall have no other rights to the App. All right, title and interest in and to the App and the content therein (excluding Your Content), not expressly granted, are reserved and retained by us or our licensors and will remain the exclusive property of GoFrendly and/or our licensors.
LICENSE GRANT AND ACCESS RIGHTS
You grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, transferable, and royalty-free right to use, reproduce, modify, transfer, make available to the public, publish, create derivative works from, and publicly display Your Content on and through the App. You shall be solely responsible for Your Content and the consequences of posting or publishing Your Content.

Should you no longer wish to receive push notifications, you may adjust the settings hereto in the App.
UPGRADES OF THE USER ACCOUNT
When you register for a User Account, you will have access to a limited, free of charge, version of the App. However, we may from time to time offer possible subscription Upgrades of your User Account in the App, which in each event will be subject to your acceptance thereto. Upgrades may be provided free of charge while others are provided for a subscription fee. The fee for each subscription Upgrade of the User Account may vary and are as specifically set out in the offer and/or the separately applicable terms thereto, which you must accept in order to get access to the relevant subscription Upgrade.
If you accept an Upgrade of your User Account, and if such Upgrade is subject to a monthly subscription fee, you will be charged such fee on a monthly basis unless otherwise specifically set out in the additional terms applicable to the Upgrade.
Unless otherwise specifically set out in the accepted additional terms applicable to the Upgrade, the first payment for the Upgrade shall be made in connection with your acceptance of the Upgrade. The recurring subscription fee will then be charged monthly in advance.
Payment for any Upgrades shall be made with one of the payment options available at any given time through the App. Payments are handled either through Google Play Store or Apple App Store. We do not handle any payment data for such payments, including for example credit card details. For more information regarding the payment services available to you and the applicable terms and conditions of such payment services, please visit the website of the third-party (Google or Apple) providing the relevant payment service.
If you have accepted an Upgrade, you can at any time request a downgrade of the User Account to the standard limited, free of charge, version of the App. If you choose to downgrade the User Account to the standard limited, free of charge, version of the App, the current Upgrade will continue to apply until the end of your current billing period. Thereafter, your User Account will be downgraded. No refunds are made. You can manage your subscription and cancel the Upgrade in your User Account settings in the App. In order to cancel your recurring payments for the Upgraded User Account, you must cancel such subscription in either Google Play Store or Apple App Store or any other applicable third party payment service provider available from time to time.

However, Premium subscriptions are digital content not supplied on tangible media. The right of withdrawal vested with consumers does not apply to such digital content. If you as a consumer purchase an Upgrade, you acknowledge and expressly agree that you will lose your right of withdrawal as soon as your User Account has been Upgraded. Google Play Store and Apple App Store or any other payment service providers may have their own terms and conditions which apply to purchases of subscriptions made via such third-party providers, please review such third party’s terms and conditions before making a such purchase of an Upgrade.
