The basic version of the Services can be used completely free of charge. This includes basic learning courses and content. If you decide to advance your learning, we have a range of subscription options to best meet your needs. You can opt to subscribe for our monthly, quarterly, yearly and lifetime subscriptions (together the “Premium”) to access advanced learning courses and content. Our Fees are subject to different subscription plans, gift plans and promotions, and we therefore reserve the right to update our Fees from time to time.
We reserve the right to change or withdraw features, specifications, services and content of a Service Plan at any time, without notice to you.
You can manage your Konju user account under your profile page within the app. If you have purchased a Paid Subscription through a distribution platform such as Google Play or Apple App Store, you must manage your account through such platforms.
If you select Monthly Premium your subscription will automatically renew as a rolling subscription and renew at the end of each monthly period, being one month (or as near to the date as possible) from the date on which your Monthly Premium was activated.
If you select Quarterly Premium your subscription will automatically renew as a rolling subscription and renew at the end of each Quarterly period, being three months (or as near to the date as possible) from the date on which your Quarterly Premium was activated.
If you select Yearly Premium, your subscription will automatically renew as a rolling subscription at the end of each annual period, on the date on which your Yearly Premium was activated (each being a “Renewal”).
If you proceed with a Renewal, the method of payment used to pay the Fees will be debited at the end of your current Premium subscription.
If you select Lifetime Premium subscription, this will be charged as a one-off upfront payment without any renewals. Lifetime Premium subscription is valid until the date Konju ceases to commercially offer the Services.
You acknowledge that, if we change the Fees, this will not affect your existing Premium subscription, therefore, if you have signed up for subscription at a certain Fee, any Fee changes will not affect any current subscription or any renewals.
Please note that if you have purchased the subscription through Apple iTunes or Konju iPhone/iPad application, the following conditions apply for renewals of Monthly, Quarterly and Yearly Premium subscription:
Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase.

If you have received a code or other offer provided or sold by or on behalf of Konju for access to a Paid Subscription (“Code”), separate terms and conditions presented to you along with the Code may also apply to your access to the Service and you agree to comply with any such terms and conditions.
Your Premium subscription may start with a free trial. The free trial period for any subscription will last for the period of time specified when you signed up. Free trials may not be combined with certain other offers, as specified. If you begin your subscription with a free trial, the first billing day will be the day after the free trial expires. E.g for a 7 day free trial the billing day will be the 8th day. However, no charges will be made if you cancel the subscription prior to the end of your free trial period. You can cancel the free trial any time, in the app store where you made your purchase.
You can keep track of your Premium subscription by opening the Account Settings after purchase which will display the expiry date of your Premium subscription.
We do not provide refunds for Apple App Store payments, as those purchases are managed solely by Apple.
We do not provide refunds after 14 days of the original purchase.
We may not be able to refund you, or there may be a delay in issuing you a refund if you have paid the Fees using any third party scripts or products that anonymise personal payment details, including but not limited to, Apple App Store and Play Store payments.
We do not offer refunds or partial refunds outside of the refund options stated above.
You are able to delete your account from the Profile menu. Once your account is deleted, you will no longer have access to your Profile and your account will lose all settings and progress. We can't restore accounts or progress after you delete your account. If you have an active Premium subscription when your account is deleted, you will not receive a refund for any time remaining on your Premium subscription. To delete your locked or suspended account, please send us the email address of the account to [email protected] and we will assist you further.
We reserve the right to modify, temporarily suspend or permanently delete your Account and terminate your access to the Services if we have reason to believe that you have breached or acted inconsistently with the Terms.
