By accepting the Terms and Conditions and using the Services in any manner, you agree to these Terms and Conditions without modification and enter into a binding contract with Pluvinel.

Your use of the services

The Services

Pluvinel hereby grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited right to access and use the Services solely for the purposes of (a) browsing the Services and searching for equestrian providers and Services; and/or (b) if you are an equestrian provider, creating a profile to promote, manage, track, and collect sales (i) in compliance with these Terms and Conditions; and (ii) to the extent permitted under all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations.

Pluvinel's role

Listing service and limited Agent

Pluvinel is not responsible for the content of the equestrian providers profiles. It is the equestrian provider’ sole obligation to ensure that any event page posting on the Services and the nature and conduct of the underlying lesson/event meet all applicable local, state, provincial, national and other laws, rules and regulations, and that the goods and services described in any event page posting are actually delivered in a satisfactory manner.

Membership

By creating an equestrian provider profile you gain a Pluvinel membership that will continue month-to-month until terminated. Unless you cancel your membership before your monthly renewal date, you authorize us to charge your next month's membership fee to your Payment Method (see "Cancellation" below). To use the Service you must have internet access, and you must provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment, which you may update from time to time.

Billing

The membership fee for the Service will be billed on a monthly basis, of your choice to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paid membership. In some cases the timing of your billing may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month.

Payment Methods

You can change your Payment Method on your Profile page, Edit mode under Pricing. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not change your Payment Method or cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have obtained a valid Payment Method. You authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.

Cancellation

You can cancel your Pluvinel membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your monthly billing period. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month membership periods. To cancel, go to the your Profile page, Edit mode and Pricing and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. If you signed up for Pluvinel using your account with a third party as a Payment Method and wish to cancel your Pluvinel membership at any time, including during your free trial, you may need to do so through such third party, for example by visiting your account with the applicable third party and unsubscribing from the Pluvinel service through that third party.
