Contribee is not and should not be held liable for any damages or losses related to your use of the services provided by Contribee (hereinafter referred to as Services). We don’t become involved in disputes between users, or between users and any third party relating to the use of the Services. We don’t oversee the performance or punctuality of pages and contents, and we don’t endorse any content users submit to the Site. When you use the Services, you release Contribee from claims, damages, and demands of every kind — known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed — arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and the Services. All content you access through the Services is at your own risk. You’re solely responsible for any resulting damage or loss to any party.
You undertake to use Contribee‘s services in such way that your activity would not be a subject to any kind of criminal or administrative responsibility. In case of such an activity, you fully undertake the consequences for the actions that were taken.
In case Contribee suspects a money laundering case, it will transfer all relevant information to governmental authorities of the Republic of Lithuania and it will not be considered an illegal transfer of personal data. Contribee has a variety of digital systems on its disposal that help to identify such cases.
You also undertake to make relevant payments using only your personal credit or debit card or a card that a third person allowed you to use. Although, if a stolen credit or debit card is used to make a payment and this fact is stated in a judgement of a criminal case, you undertake to indemnify the damages suffered by any third party and waive any rights to make claims against Contribee.
Contribee collects a one-time fee (Fee) from the subscribers (Subscribers) of natural persons or legal entities who upload certain content to the Site (Creators). After the Fee is collected from a Subscriber, he gains access to the Creator’s uploaded specific content which was paid for by the Subscriber. Size of the Fee is published on the Site. You as a Subscriber agree that the service has been provided to You after the payment was made; therefore, the payments made are not refunded unless:
- The content cannot be accessed due to the Creator’s fault which has to be proved by the Fan;
- Due to Contribee's fault, the content is not visible for the entire subscription period or after purchasing single pay-per-post record;
- When the Contribee or Stripe system performs duplicate charges;
- The Contribee system charges the wrong amount.
Contribee undertakes to provide a Subscriber with comprehensive information regarding the size of the Fee and procedure of payments during registration of the Subscriber‘s account on the Site, although keeps a right to change the size of it while the Subscriber is still an active user of Contribee. Contribee informs the Subscriber of such changes 15 calendar days in advance. If the Subscriber does not agree with changes of the Fee and (or) payment procedures, he undertakes to terminate his account on Contribee. If during the period of 15 calendar days after informing the Subscriber about the changes mentioned above he (1) does not terminate his account or (2) does not refer to Contribee with a written refusal to pay an increased Fee, it is considered that the Subscriber accepts changes of the Fee.
Each payment provider is its own company, and Contribee isn’t responsible for its performance. You are responsible for paying any additional fees or taxes associated with your use of Contribee.
