The Wingzzz Service and all content viewed through our service are for personal and non-commercial use only. During the term of your Wingzzz subscription, we grant you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access the Wingzzz Service and view digital books streamed through the service for that purpose only. Except for the foregoing limited license, no right, title or interest is transferred to you.

4. Subscription, trial subscription and billing.
a. Trial subscription.
When you start your trial period you will receive email confirmation from Wingzzz. When you click the confirmation link, you will be granted unlimited access to the Wingzzz library. No payment method is required. The Wingzzz trial subscription lasts for 14 days (or as long as indicated during registration). Restrictions may apply to combinations with other offers. Trial subscriptions are only for new subscribers. Wingzzz reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine whether you are eligible for a trial subscription. When your free trial period expires, you will no longer have free access to our Library unless you register as a paying customer. One day before your free trial ends, you will receive an email request to start paying for the Wingzzz service. If you take no action, no charge will be made to your account.
b. Home and Class Subscription - Continuous (monthly) paid subscription.
If you decide to continue using Wingzzz with a monthly paid subscription, Wingzzz will ask you to provide your Payment Method and will begin charging your subscription fees monthly until you cancel your subscription. To use the Wingzzz Service you must have Internet access and provide a recent, valid, accepted payment method (hereinafter: the "Payment Method"). During your active subscription, we will charge a monthly subscription fee to your provided Payment Method, subject to the term specified under "Online Cancellation". You must cancel your subscription with due observance of the term mentioned under "Online Cancellation" in order to prevent the subscription costs for the following month from being charged via your Payment Method.
c. School Subscription - Continuous (yearly) paid subscription.
If you decide to continue using Wingzzz with a yearly paid subscription for your school, Wingzzz will ask you to provide the name and email address of your school’s budget responsible person. When your subscription is activated, you can invite all the teachers of your school to make use of the School subscription by setting up their own accounts. Adding new teachers to the School subscription will not effect the subscription fee, no additional charges will accrue. Wingzzz will calculate the cost percentage for the remaining year and send an invoice to your school via e-mail to your school's budget responsible person with 15 days payment term. An invoice for the following year will be sent to your school by Jan 15. During your active subscription, we will charge a yearly subscription fee to your school each year latest by January 15. If you wish to cancel your yearly school subscription, your budget responsible person must contact us by email before 15 December in order to prevent the subscription costs for the following year from being invoiced.
d. Right of withdrawal.
You explicitly grant permission for your subscription to take effect as soon as you click on 'Confirm' during registration. This gives you direct access to the Wingzzz service so you can stream digital books. This does not affect your right to cancel your subscription at any time.
e. Recurring billing.
When you start your Wingzzz subscription, you authorize us to debit the monthly subscription fee at the (then applicable) rate in advance via your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the billed amount may vary for a variety of reasons, including promotional offers and codes, different currency exchange rates and / or an amended or added subscription. You authorize us to charge such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more times, through your Payment Method.
f. No refunds.
Payments cannot be refunded. Therefore, we do not make refunds or credits for partially used periods. After cancellation, you will continue to have access to the service until the end of your current billing period. At any time and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount or other compensation to some or all subscribers ("credits"). The amount and form of these credits and the decision to make them are at the sole discretion of Wingzzz. If Wingzzz makes a credit in a particular case, this does not mean that you are entitled to credits in the future or that we are obliged to repay any amounts.
a. Home and Class Cancellation.
You can cancel your Wingzzz Home or Class (monthly) subscription at any time. You will then continue to have access to the Wingzzz service until the end of your monthly billing period. We do not make refunds or credits for part of the month of a subscription period or for digital books that have not been viewed.
