6. Premium Service (on InvestingSidekick.com)
In addition to the above, the following provisions in this Clause 6 shall apply to you if you have opted to subscribe to the Premium Membership service on the InvestingSidekick.com website (collectively, the ‘Premium Service’) (such user of the Premium Service shall be referred to as a ‘Premium Member’).
6.1 Subscription and Service
You may not use any portion of the Premium Service without a valid subscription from Investing Sidekick. To obtain a subscription, you must register for the Premium Service by completing the online registration form available on the Site. Your subscription will not be valid unless and until Investing Sidekick accepts your registration. By registering for the Premium Service, you represent and warrant that all registration information that you provide is true, complete, and accurate, and you agree to notify Investing Sidekick promptly of any changes to this registration information. This notification may be effected either by editing your user profile in the Members area of the Site or by using the “Contact Us” functionality on the Site in accordance with Clause .
You may be offered a free or discounted trial subscription to the Premium Service, beginning on the date on which Investing Sidekick accepts your registration and you will be notified of the length of the trial subscription before you register for this service. If you do not terminate this subscription to the Premium Service during this trial period by notifying Investing Sidekick at the email address provided to you at the time you register for the trial subscription, the initial term of your regular paid Premium Service subscription will start immediately after the trial period ends, and will continue until the subscription is cancelled.
If you have taken advantage of a trial or discounted subscription for the Premium Membership in the past, you will not be eligible for a trial and instead your credit card will be charged immediately for the Premium Service subscription fee associated with the term length you select when you register.
You understand that, unless you notify Investing Sidekick at the email address provided to you at the time that you register for the Premium Service, that you wish to terminate your Premium Service subscription before the end of your then-current subscription term, your subscription will continue to automatically renew for successive terms of the same duration and your credit card will be charged for each such renewal at the applicable subscription fee in effect at the time of that renewal. In those instances where you took advantage of a special or introductory offer to become a premium member, your subscription will automatically renew at Investing Sidekick’s then-current subscription fee to the term specified in the offer and your credit card will be charged the subscription fee in effect at the time of that renewal.
The term ‘subscription term’ shall refer to the term of your subscription then in effect, regardless of whether it is the initial term or any renewal of that term.
INVESTING SIDEKICK RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE PREMIUM SERVICE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ADDING OR REMOVING FEATURES). IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY SUCH CHANGES, OR IF YOU ARE OTHERWISE DISSATISFIED WITH THE PREMIUM SERVICE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ITS PERFORMANCE OR AVAILABILITY), YOUR ONLY REMEDY WILL BE TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, AS SET FORTH BELOW.
Your subscription is personal to you, and you may not transfer or share your subscription with any other person (including but not limited to your co-workers) other than immediate family members living in the same household, provided that: (i) such family members have read and agree to be bound by the Agreement, including this Clause 6; (ii) your Premium Service subscription is not simultaneously used by more than one person at any given time; and (iii) you agree to be responsible for any use other than that described in (i) and (ii).
6.2 Charges and Billing Practices
If offered a trial to the Premium Service, you will not be charged a full subscription fee during that trial period. Subscription fees on credit-card transactions will be authorised immediately, but not actually processed until the trial period has expired. Unless your subscription is cancelled before the end of your free trial period, you will be charged for the initial term of your Premium Service subscription and then, at the beginning of each renewal term, if any, you will be charged the then-current Premium Service subscription fee for the term length you selected. Subscription fees will be based upon the subscription rates in effect at the start of each subscription term and will apply whether or not you actually use the Premium Service during that term. You may always find the current retail subscription rates by reviewing the “Members” portion of the Site. Subscription fees are non-refundable, except as set forth below.
We reserve the right to change the subscription or other fees we charge for Products offered in connection with the Premium Service and/or the Site at any time. We will notify you of any changes to fees at the registered email address. These sorts of changes include, but are not limited to, adding fees for new/optional Products and/or modifying fees for existing Products. By using any of the Products with which there are associated fees, you agree to pay those fees and that Investing Sidekick may charge your credit card for those fees. If you do not want to pay these associated fees, you must cancel your subscription, as set forth below.
Subscription fees and all other fees and charges associated with your subscription (including, but not limited to, VAT) will be billed automatically to the credit card you provide (‘your credit card’) when registering for the Premium Service. If your credit card is a VISA or MasterCard and the number or expiration date for your credit card changes for any reason (for instance, you get a new number because your old card expired, was stolen, etc.), that updated information may be automatically passed on from your credit card issuer to Investing Sidekick, and if Investing Sidekick does receive such information, it will be treated by Investing Sidekick as if it were originally furnished by you. To learn more about this service being provided by your credit card issuer, please contact them directly.
You must promptly notify Investing Sidekick (as set in Clause ) if any information related to your credit card changes or is no longer valid or of any other change to the information you provided Investing Sidekick regarding your credit card (including, but not limited to, changes to your billing address or other pertinent contact information). Absent such notification, Investing Sidekick will assume that all of the information related to your credit card remains valid and will submit to the card processor all information that it requires for approval, both when you initially subscribe and, if applicable, upon the commencement of any renewal of that subscription. If any subscription fees or other charges billed to your credit card are declined for any reason, Investing Sidekick shall have the right to suspend your subscription until such subscription fees or other charges are paid in full. You agree to pay all reasonable costs (including attorneys’ fees) actually incurred by Investing Sidekick in collecting any unpaid subscription fees or other charges from you.
You may cancel your subscription either in the “Members” section of the Site or by notifying us in accordance with Clause , or given on the Site. You must give Investing Sidekick at least 5 days’ notice before the date your subscription fee is next due to be charged to your credit card. If a cancellation notice is not received 5 days prior, Investing Sidekick will not be able to cancel the next automatic payment scheduled and you will be charged for renewal.
If you cancel your subscription during your trial period, you will not be responsible for the payment of a subscription fee. However, except as otherwise provided in the Agreement, if you subscribe on a 6 monthly or greater basis and you cancel your Premium Service subscription at any time your membership will terminate on the next date of renewal. (For example, if your paid subscription start date is on January 1 and you cancel on June 15, your membership terminates on June 30, at which time it ends.) If you subscribe on a monthly basis and subsequently cancel your subscription during a month, your subscription will continue to the end of its monthly term and you will be entitled to continue to use the Premium Service until the time of termination.
Investing Sidekick may immediately cancel your subscription, without notice or liability, if it determines in its sole discretion that: (i) you have breached any portion of the Agreement; or (ii) your use of or access to the Premium Service or the Site violates any applicable law or regulation or otherwise inhibits any other subscriber from using or accessing the Premium Service or any other service offered by Investing Sidekick on the Site or in the Products. None of the foregoing limits any other legal, equitable, or contractual rights available to Investing Sidekick.
Investing Sidekick may, in its sole discretion, choose not to renew your subscription by sending a notice of non-renewal at any time during your subscription term to the e-mail address you provided when completing your registration or to a new e-mail address where you have notified us of your change in e-mail address. You will be deemed to have received this notice, whether or not you saw it or the e-mail address most recently provided by you continues to be valid. In the event of such a notice, your subscription will cease and will not automatically renew at the end of your then-current subscription term.
6.4 Customer Service and Product Support
For customer service related to your Premium Service subscription (product, technical or subscription questions), please contact Investing Sidekick via email (as set forth in Clause  (on working days, 9am-5pm London time) or using Investing Sidekick’s online form. The online form is available on the “Contact Us” page of the Site.
6.5 Refer a friend
Investing Sidekick offers a refer a friend program for Premium Members. This offer is for referring new customers only, and does not include former Premium Members reinstating memberships. Premium Members must have an active membership to be eligible to accrue free months. Free months will be issued once the referred customer has passed the point at which they can claim a refund on the purchase. If you are on a monthly subscription service your next months subscription will still be charged to your credit card, but will be subsequently refunded to you. If you have pre-paid for more than one month in advance then we will refund you one months charges calculated on a pro-rata basis. We aim to do this at the beginning of the next calendar month. In the event that a referred friend successfully claims a refund after free months have been awarded, then any rewards given will become immediately invalid and the Premium Member will be required to recommence paying for the service. If we suspect that any Premium Member is abusing the offer to get continuous free access then they will be prohibited from accruing free months and accruals to that point may be nullified. Investing Sidekick reserves the right to prohibit any Premium Member from access to this offer retroactively. There is currently no limit to the number of friends that can be referred, but Investing Sidekick reserves the right to impose a limit at any time and decline subsequent referral claims on that basis. Investing Sidekick reserves the right to refuse rewards for any reason if we suspect they have not been legitimately earned.
