5. Fees and Payment
During your registration, you may be offered a free 5-day trial. If you cancel your account within the free trial period, you will only see the verification charges and their corresponding refunds in your statement. If you do not cancel your account within this time, your account will be automatically extended to a premium account at the cost of 99 EUR per month.
During the registration to Directebooks, you may also get the option to instantly purchase a premium account at the cost of 99 EUR per month. Your account will be charged with the monthly fee immediately, with no free-of-charge period included, and the monthly charges will continue automatically until your account is canceled.
By starting your Directebooks membership, either by selecting a free trial or making the instant purchase of a premium account, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the provider service to the Payment Method you provided during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information).
You can use the following Payment Methods: Credit/debit card or bank account.
Internet Access Charges: You are responsible for any costs you incur to access the internet.
Free trials: If you are eligible, and have signed up for a free trial, your Payment Method will be authorized for up to approximately one month of service during free trials; however, no charges will be made against the Payment Method unless you do not cancel prior to the end of your free trial period. We may also periodically authorize your card in anticipation of membership or related charges. Membership fees and charges are fully earned upon payment. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the “Your Account” link, available at the top of the pages of the provider website. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, “Cancellation” below), you authorize us to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Credit/debit card registration
In order to increase the safety and security of every customer who uses our services, Directebooks may post a verification charge to your credit or debit card, with an amount of 1 EUR. Please note these charges will be automatically refunded to your account and are exclusively for the purpose of validating the customers payment method. These verification charges may occur within the first 30 days of the registration period, as well as at any point during the duration of the service. Directebooks may request the customer to enter this variable amount in order to verify that he is the legitimate and authorized account holder. Should you have any questions related to these charges, please contact us via Directebooks.net or email us at: support@Directebooks.net. If you have signed up for a free trial and do not cancel your account within one week, your account will automatically be extended to a premium account. If you have made an instant purchase of a premium account, your account will be charged immediately, and the monthly charges will continue automatically.
Just after a successful registration you will immediately receive a confirmation email containing the details of your subscription:
name of the site
duration of the subscription
date and time of renewal
duration of the renewal
You may cancel your Directebooks membership at any time and you will continue to have access to the Directebooks service through the end of your monthly billing period. Please note that you must cancel your subscription before it renews each Monthly Period in order to avoid the next billing. To cancel your account you may go to your account settings and choose cancel account. You may also contact us on Directebooks.net.
To make sure you won’t forget about the change of your subscription, 24 hours prior to the end of your trial period you will be informed about it via email. The email will include information about your subscription (e.g. billing, subscription period, range of your subscription plan) and the link that will allow you to cancel your subscription if you decide to do so.
If you cancel your subscription, cancellation will be effective at the end of the current Monthly Period – this means that you will have continued access to Directebooks for the remainder of that period, but you will not receive a refund.
FRAUD & UNAUTHORIZED USE: Directebooks is concerned with your security and protects you from fraud. In the event of a charge to your account that you do not recognize, have not authorized, and that is not related to yourself neither directly nor indirectly, Directebooks will reimburse you for the full amount. In case you experience a fraudulent charge on your account, please contact our support team: Directebooks.net
No-refunds: Please note that payments are non-refundable and we do not provide refunds for any partial-month membership periods or unwatched movies or TV shows. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (”credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
