Subscription fee and subscription period
Subscription payments for our Services are made periodically, according to the package You selected when You signed up: every month, or once a year. At the end of Your subscription period, Your subscription will be automatically renewed. If You do not wish to continue Your subscription, You may terminate Your User Account before Your current subscription period ends. Subscription prices may change from time to time and by continuing to use Natural Cycles You agree to the price change.
Payments for the use of the Services (“Subscription Fees”) are made periodically in advance. Each payment covers a subscription period (“Subscription Period”) during which the User may access the Services. A Subscription Period can be one month, or one year as offered by the Services.
Subscription Fees must be paid using a lawfully issued credit or debit card for which You have authorization to make a charge. Natural Cycles reserves the right to block access to Your User Account until a valid credit or debit card has been provided to cover all charges incurred by You. You are solely responsible for any late payment charges or other charges incurred by You as a result of Your use of a credit or debit card to pay a subscription fee.
At the end of each Subscription Period, Your subscription will be automatically renewed for one month, or one year subscription each time (depending on whether Your current Subscription Period is one month, or one year respectively). To avoid Your subscription period being automatically renewed You may terminate Your subscription at Your User Account before the last day of Your current Subscription Period. The termination will take effect from the last day of Your current Subscription Period.
In certain cases, such as discounts or promotions, the Subscription fee may include a basal thermometer or other products designed to facilitate, or related to, your use of the Products or Services. The Products are considered marketing gifts and do not contribute to the purchase price. Natural Cycles has no obligation to replace, or in any other way compensate You for, faulty Products given for marketing purposes or Products constituting marketing gifts that have not arrived. Natural Cycles offers no right to return such marketing gifts, as You have paid for the subscription and not the marketing gifts.
Natural Cycles reserves the right to change the price for a Subscription Period at any time. Price changes for a Subscription Period will take effect at the start of the next Subscription Period following the date of the price change and will be communicated to Users affected by the change before such date. By continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect, You agree to accept the new price. The prices for the Products in the Webshop are subject to change without notice.
You may cancel Your subscription of the Services at any time, and You will continue to have access to the Services throughout Your pre-paid Subscription Period. We do not provide refunds, right to return for a purchased subscription, credits for any partially used subscription or unused User Account, or by reason of Your dissatisfaction with the Services. As the subscription gives You access to the Services (which are digital and not provided via a physical medium) instantaneously after the purchase, Natural Cycles does not offer a right of return (such as refunding the subscription fee). To cancel Your Subscription, go to the profile settings when logged in on Your User Account and follow the instructions for cancellation. The cancellation policies applicable to the Product or Service You have purchased will apply.

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Natural Cycles and its affiliates, partners, directors, officers, contractors, licensors, agents, interns, suppliers, service providers and employees (“Natural Cycles and its associates” hereinafter) (a) disclaim all warranties, either express or implied including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement (b) shall not be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from Your use of any of the Sites, Service, or Products, whether procured using the Webshop or otherwise, or for any other claim related in any way to Your use of the Services, Products, Sites or Webshop including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the Services, Products, Sites or Webshop, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Service, even if advised of their possibility. The Service and Products delivered to You are (except as expressly stated by us) provided ‘as is’ and ‘as available’ for Your use. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
In no event shall Natural Cycles and its associates be liable an amount that exceed the total amount of Your payments to Natural Cycles over the past twelve (12) months, calculated from the event giving rise to the liability.

You understand and agree that the cancellation of Your User Account is Your sole right and remedy with respect to any dispute with Natural Cycles.

The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of this agreement for all purposes.
A termination of Your subscription of the Services will be effective from the day after the last day of Your current Subscription Period, unless Your subscription is terminated by Natural Cycles due to Your breach of any provision in these Terms, in which case the termination will be effective immediately.
We reserve our right to cancel an order if You breach or violate any of the Terms related to the Webshop, Sites, Services or Products. We reserve the right to limit the sales or quantities of Products to any person (on case-by-case basis) or geographic region or jurisdiction.

In the event that We make a change to, or cancel an order, We may attempt to notify You by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in Our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors.

If any one part of these Terms cannot be enforced or is found to be illegal, this will not affect the remaining Terms. These Terms are still valid, even if we do not enforce any particular part of this agreement.
If any provision of these Terms should be held to be illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part, under any enactment or rule of law, such provision or part shall to that extent be deemed not to form a part of these Terms. The enforceability of the remainder of these Terms shall not be affected, provided that the remaining provisions of these Terms shall be reasonably adjusted to redress any imbalance caused by such unenforceability.
15.2 Entire agreement
The failure of Natural Cycles to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms represent the entire agreement between the User and Natural Cycles Nordic AB and supersede any previous written or oral agreement between the parties in relation to the subject matters dealt within these Terms.
