Terms of Service for “Vino Giulia” referred to as “Vino Giulia” “Wine App” or “we” in this agreement.
Effective Date: February 13, 2023
Welcome to the Vino Giulia (“Wine App”), a platform for discovering and learning about wine. These terms of service (the “Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Wine App, including any content, functionality, and services offered on or through the Wine App (collectively, the “Services”).
Please read these Terms carefully before using the Services. By accessing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must not access or use the Services.
Changes to Terms:
We may revise and update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes.
Access to Services:
Subject to these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to access and use the Services. We reserve all rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
The Services are intended for individuals who are of legal drinking age in their jurisdiction. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are of legal drinking age.
Our services are based on a subscription model, which can be obtained through the Apple and Google application stores. While the Vino Giulia application can be downloaded and used free of charge, unlimited access to several features (wine tasting notes and access to course materials) requires an auto-renewing subscription.
The pricing for subscriptions may vary depending on the location of purchase and the currency used. Different prices may be displayed based on your location. We reserve the right to modify or remove subscription plans and currencies.
Please be aware that subscription pricing for non-UK customers via the App Store or Google Play Store may differ due to fluctuations in exchange rates. As a result, subscription prices may vary between the website, App Store, and Google Play Store, compared to fixed UK pricing.
You can purchase a Vino Giulia App subscription using in-app purchases from external platforms, such as Apple Store and Google Play Store. The terms and conditions specified by the provider apply to all in-app purchases. All transactions are processed securely through the payment gateway used by the application store provider. If you have any billing or payment-related issues, you should contact the application store provider directly.
We may offer a free trial to new users, which is valid for a limited period, as specified on the day of sign-up. We reserve the right to modify or remove the free trial period at any time. If you do not cancel your subscription before the end of the free trial period, your subscription will automatically convert to a paid subscription, which is not eligible for a refund. Please note that any unused free trial periods cannot be extended and are only available to new users.
You have the option to cancel your subscription at any time, regardless of whether it is in the trial or active state. If you do not wish to continue your subscription, you must cancel it at least 24 hours before the start of the next billing period, or you will be charged for the following billing period. After you cancel your subscription, you will still have access to the Vino Giulia App until the end of the current billing period. Please note that refunds are not available.
