SMIX Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions create a contract between you and SMIX (the "Agreement"). Please read the Agreement carefully. By creating an account, or by using or visiting our Website and/or application, you are bound to these Terms and you indicate your continued acceptance of these Terms.
A. INTRODUCTION TO OUR SERVICES
This Agreement governs your use of SMIX's services ("Services"), through which you can rent content. Our Services are available for your use in your country of residence ("Home Country"). To use our Services, you need compatible hardware, software (latest version recommended and sometimes required) and Internet access (fees may apply). Our Services' performance may be affected by these factors.
B. USING OUR SERVICESPAYMENTS, TAXES, AND REFUNDS
You can acquire Content on our Services for free or for a charge, either of which is referred to as a "Transaction." Each Transaction is an electronic contract between you and SMIX. SMIX will charge your selected payment method (such as your credit card, debit card, gift card/code, or other method available in your Home Country) for any paid Transactions, including any applicable taxes. If we cannot charge your selected payment method for any reason (such as expiration or insufficient funds), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, and we will attempt to charge the payment method again as you may update your payment method information. If you pre-order Content, you will be charged when the Content is delivered to you (unless you cancel prior to the Content's availability). In accordance with local law, SMIX may update information regarding your selected payment method if provided such information by your financial institution. All Transactions are final. Content prices may change at any time. If technical problems prevent or unreasonably delay delivery of Content, your exclusive and sole remedy is either replacement of the Content or refund of the price paid, as determined by SMIX. From time to time, SMIX may refuse a refund request if we find evidence of fraud, refund abuse, or other manipulative behavior that entitles SMIX to a corresponding counterclaim.
Using our Services and accessing your Content will require a SMIX Account. Your SMIX Account is valuable, and you are responsible for maintaining its confidentiality and security. SMIX is not responsible for any losses arising from the unauthorized use of your SMIX Account. Please contact SMIX if you suspect that your SMIX Account has been compromised.
You must be age 18 (or equivalent minimum age in your Home Country, as set forth in the registration process) to create a SMIX Account and use our Services.
