2. Account Suspension & Termination

Boss Media Ltd. encourages you to report violations of our guidelines and Terms.  We reserve the right, at our sole and final discretion, to deactivate, freeze, suspend or terminate any account upon any factual or alleged breach of these Terms.  You must notify us immediately of any change in your eligibility to use our platform, or if you suspect a breach of security or unauthorized use of your account.

Users undertaking conducts that may constitute a factual –or even alleged– breach of these Terms, including but not limiting, using automated mechanisms to make fraudulent communications, may become subject to immediate account suspension/termination, at our sole and final discretion, without notice and without responsibility.

You may terminate your account at any time by going to the “delete account” button located inside the “Edit Profile” section which can be accessed through the dropdown at the side of your username.  We may terminate or suspend your Boss Media Ltd. account if you go contrary to any Boss Media Ltd. policies or for any other reason(s), which we will notify you about.

3. Payment Terms

We rely on authorized third-party payment processors in order to bill Orders through a payment account linked to you, and henceforth you hereby authorize us to charge the pertinent fees through your indicated payment processing account.  Sensitive financial details are stored only by our payment providers.

Such third party payment processors are also the ones that process, manage, operate and deliver the payments of your end customers, not Boss Media Ltd.  For more information, please refer to the terms of use of our third party payment processing platform, which may include Stripe or PayPal.  

Accordingly, Boss Media Ltd. shall not be held responsible for any and all errors, fees and currency conversion fees by our payment processors, and you should review its terms and policies from time to time, which will govern the provision of services to you.

3.1 Disputes & Charge-backs

In the future, users may provide us with valid and current billing information.  Except as expressly set forth herein, all payment charges are final and non-cancelable.  If we detect any chargeback or if any payment is not received by us or our payment processors for any reason, you will promptly pay us any and all amounts due to us upon notice.  Any failure or inability by us to process any payment hereunder does not relieve you from your payment obligations.

A chargeback is typically caused when a customer disputes a charge that appears on their bank or payment processing statement.  A charge-back may result in the reversal of a transaction, with the amount charged back to you.  You can be assessed charge-backs for: (i) customer disputes; (ii) unauthorized or improperly authorized transactions; (iii) transactions that do not comply with payment processor network rules or are allegedly unlawful or suspicious; or (iv) any reversals for any reason by our payment processor or the institutions handling the transaction.

When a chargeback is issued, you are immediately liable to Boss Media Ltd. for the full amount of payment of the chargeback, plus any associated fees, fines, expenses or penalties (including those assessed by our payment processor or the financial institutions handling the transaction).  Accordingly, you hereby represent and warrant that you expressly appoint Boss Media Ltd. as your agent, with full power to recover these amounts by debiting your account or setting off any amounts owed to you by us.

If we are unable to recover funds related to a charge-back for which you are liable, you will pay us the full amount of the chargeback immediately upon demand; thus you agree to pay all costs and expenses, including without limitation, costs assessed by our payment processor, legal fees and other legal expenses, incurred by or on behalf of us in connection with the collection of any unpaid charge-backs unpaid by you.

3.2 Refunds: While you may cancel your subscription at any time.  Find out more details about the refund policy and how it applies to each product we sell. Read more about our Refund Policy.

3.3 Application Approval: BuddyBoss will use commercially reasonable efforts to have the Application approved by the appropriate Mobile Platform Provider. Although there is a high likelihood of approval, we do not and cannot guarantee approval.

3.4 Subscription Billing Start Date:  Your initial subscription billing will start on the date you receive access to the purchased product. This is normally on the same day you make your purchase, or in the case of a pre-launch, it is the day the product is released and you receive access to it. Your card will then be charged on the same day of every month or year that follows, depending on the plan you chose, until you cancel your account.

3.5 Automatic Subscription Renewal: To ensure uninterrupted service, BuddyBoss will automatically bill you for your subscription on each renewal period thereafter until cancellation.

3.6 Up to Date, Payment Details: To avoid any interruption in the service, the User shall maintain up to date credit card details in their account dashboard, accessible at https://www.buddyboss.com/my-account/.

3.7 Billing Questions: For any billing related questions, please contact BuddyBoss via [email protected]

4. Cancellation, Termination and Service Suspension

4.1 Cancellation: You may cancel your subscription at any time by sending an email to [email protected] from the same email used in your BuddyBoss account. Your request will be processed and subscription will be cancelled within generally up to 7 days.  

4.2 Termination & Suspension: Failure to comply with any of our Terms and/or failure to pay a due fee or renew your subscription shall entitle BuddyBoss to immediately suspend your account, including service to your application and provision of services to you, including paid services.

4.3 Service Reactivation: One cancelled, your subscription cannot be re-activated. You will need to make a new purchase if you would like to launch a mobile application. 

5. Changes to our Services and Pricing

  • BuddyBoss reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, a Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice.
  • Any changes will be displayed in the Service, and we may notify you by email.  Please refer to the last effective date where changes were last undertaken by us.  Your use of our Services after the effective date of any update– either by an account registration or simple use – thereby indicates your acceptance thereof.
  • Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly subscription plan fees to provided Services, are subject to change upon a 30 days notice from us. Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to our website (buddyboss.com).
  • BuddyBoss shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of a Service.
  • The BuddyBoss App uses Google's Firebase service to send push notifications. This service is provided by Google for free. While we believe this is unlikely, if Google were to turn this into a paid service, we may need to find alternatives or provide a paid solution, which may involve additional costs to you.

BuddyBoss Limited Guarantee

Boss Media Ltd. shall make all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that any interface or integration from a third party provider or system as part of the Services operates correctly.  Notwithstanding, you acknowledge that the successful operation of any interface or integration is dependent upon the technical set up of said third party systems, such as Amazon Web Services and other infrastructure and cloud computing providers.  

Accordingly, you agree that: (a) Boss Media Ltd. cannot be held liable for any failures in the operation of the interface or integration resulting from acts or omissions by you or the third party; (b) Boss Media Ltd. shall have no liability or obligation whatsoever to you in relation to the content on or use of, or correspondence with any third party website or service made available via the Services.
