These are the terms and conditions for:
(Hereinafter referred to as “Vockam”).
The following terms and conditions apply to the platform and services offered by Vockam. This includes the mobile and tablet versions as well as any other version of Vockam accessible via desktop, mobile, tablet, social media or other devices.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING, USING OR OBTAINING ANY MATERIALS, INFORMATION OR SERVICES.
You may use the platform only in compliance with these terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations.
Use of the Services is available to all ages. In the case of minors, it is the responsibility of parents and legal guardians to determine whether use of the platform or any of the content and functionality available in the services and packages is appropriate for their child or minor in custody. Vockam reserves the right to make the necessary checks during the registration process.
You represent and warrant that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful; and that your use of the platform does not violate any applicable law or regulation. Vockam may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the platform and services to any user and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the service and the platform is revoked in such jurisdictions.
By providing Vockam with your email address and phone number you consent to our use of your email address to send you notices about the platform and services. We may also use your email address and phone number to send you notifications and other messages, such as changes to service features, news, and special content. If you do not wish to receive these emails, you may opt-out of receiving them by sending us your withdrawal request via the contact information or by using the "unsubscribe" option in the emails or mobile notifications. Opting out may prevent you from receiving emails about updates, news or special content.
By using the platform and services, you represent and warrant that you have the full right, power and authority to enter into these terms and to fully perform all of your obligations hereunder. You further represent and warrant that you are under no legal disability or contractual restriction that prevents you from entering into these terms.
When registering on the platform, the user must choose a password and may be asked for additional information, such as email address and phone number. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account information, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Vockam of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you log out of your account at the end of each session. You may never use another user's account without Vockam’ prior authorization. Vockam will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your breach of this agreement.
By registering and using the platform, users authorize Vockam and Vockam to use the logo of the user's company through our banners, slides and websites, with the sole and exclusive purpose of promoting the platform and for marketing purposes.
Users may cancel their accounts at any time and for any reason by following the instructions on the platform or by sending us their request through our contact information. Such cancellation will only result in the deletion of the account and the deletion of all personal data transferred to Vockam.
Vockam reserves the right to terminate your account or your access immediately, with or without notice, and without liability to you, if Vockam believes that you have breached any of these terms, provided Vockam with false or misleading information, or interfered with other users' use of the Platform or the Service.
Vockam services are available through free and paid packages.
Vockam offers the following packages:
When a user places an order for a package, the user agrees and declares to purchase the package for the price advertised on the website. Please check the price and features of the packages before placing an order.
We may calculate taxes payable by you based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase. You are responsible for all charges related to using the purchased Service (for example, data charges and currency exchange settlements).
Vockam reserves the right to change its prices at any time, however, if we have offered a specific duration and Fee for your use of the Service, we agree that the Fee will remain in force for that duration. After the offer period ends, your use of the Service will be charged at the then-current Fee(s). If you don't agree to these changes, you must stop using the Service and cancel via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (with cancellation confirmation from a Vockam representative). If you cancel, your Service ends at the end of your current Service period or payment period, and no refunds for previously paid services will be issued.
If you do not cancel in accordance with these Terms, the subscription for the Service will automatically renew at the then-current price and term length for the next subscription period. We will charge your credit card on file with us on the first day of the renewal of the subscription period.
When a user places an order, Vockam will send an email for confirmation. This confirmation email will be produced automatically so that the user has confirmation of payment and initiation of the package. If you do not receive the email, it is possible that the email has been sent to your spam folder.
Vockam may cancel any sales and not provide the packages and may change or discontinue the availability of the packages at any time in its sole discretion. If a purchase is cancelled, any payment made for the package will be refunded in full. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Packages may include automatic recurring payments. You authorize Vockam to renew your package and to charge you periodically and progressively. The package billing date is the date you make your first payment. Your account will be automatically charged on the package billing date with all applicable fees for the next package period. The package will continue until you cancel your package or we terminate it. You must cancel your package before it renews to avoid the next billing period. We will bill the recurring package fee to the payment method you provide during enrolment.
Packages will automatically renew for an additional period unless cancelled before the next payment. Cancelled accounts will immediately lose access to the website's payment features.
Services and packages will be paid via Stripe or bank transfer (platforms and payment methods available on the website). Packages will be activated once the payment and registration process is completed. Payment will be charged to your credit/debit card immediately after placing the order for the package you have purchased. Once the transaction has been processed, we will send you an electronic receipt of the transaction to the email address you provide.
If you find any inconsistency in your billing, please contact us through our contact information or you can make the claim through the customer service of the corresponding payment platform.
If your card is declined, you will receive an error message. No payment will be charged to your card and no order will be processed. There may be a pending transaction on your account until your card issuing bank withdraws the authorization. This usually takes 2 to 5 business days. Your card may be declined for various reasons such as insufficient funds, AVS (Address Verification System) mismatch or you have entered an incorrect security code.
If your payment is declined, you must provide an alternative payment method or provide another card where payment can be charged and processed.
Your payment information will be treated and safeguarded securely and for the sole purpose of processing the purchase of packages. Vockam reserves the right to contract any payment platform available on the market, which treats your data for the sole purpose of processing the purchase of packages.
