Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions for using DUBLICOM LIMITED Online Services
Effective Date: May 1, 2013.
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE (“TERMS”) CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SITE, AS THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WAIVERS OF RIGHTS, LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES AND YOUR INDEMNITY TO US. BY ACCESSING OR USING THIS SITE, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THIS SITE.
These “Terms” govern your use of this site and all services, features, widgets, applications, content or downloads available through the Site or that post these Terms (the “Site”) regardless of how you access or use it. DUBLICOM LIMITED or its subsidiaries and/or affiliates (collectively, “DubLi”, “us”or “we”) operate this Site.
You are obligated to gain a complete understanding of the Terms and the functions and operation of the Site. The DubLi ‘Help’ comments, as well as the ‘Fees’ section, can be an aid in this purpose. In the event any ‘Help’ comments, content, or any statements by our customer services personnel conflict with these Terms, these Terms will govern.
§ 1 Validity, Compliancy and Changes to Terms
(1) These Terms serve to regulate the contractual and operational relationship between you and DubLi. They apply to every user, whether they are natural persons or legal entities. By using the Site, you declare your consent with these Terms. In addition, you will be requested to expressly accept the currently valid Terms at various points of the Site. However, if you access and use the Site other than to read these Terms, you are bound by them.
(2) DubLi reserves the right to change these Terms prospectively, at any time and without any reason, including, but not limited to, changing the prices (“Updated Terms”). You may be notified of Updated Terms by email; however, you agree that we may notify you of the Updated Terms by posting them on the Site so that they are accessible via a link on the home page of the Site, and that your use of the Site after we have posted the Updated Terms (or engaging in such other conduct as we may reasonably specify) constitutes your agreement to the Updated Terms. Therefore, you should review these Terms each time before using the Site. The Updated Terms will be effective as of the time of posting, or such later date as may be specified in the Updated Terms, and will apply to your use of the Site from that point forward.
§ 2 Contract, Eligibility, Registration
(1) Your contractual partner is DUBLICOM LIMITED, 17 Gr. Xenopoulou Street, 3106 Limassol, Cyprus
(2) Those eligible to use the Site and purchase products or services offered by us are natural persons the age of majority (i.e., old enough to enter a binding contract) in the jurisdiction in which they are located, and in no event younger than 18 years of age and legal entities duly incorporated and in good standing in the jurisdiction in which they are located. Consumers may participate within the scope of customary consumer use only. Companies may sign up for free and use all accessible products and services but may not purchase Optional Memberships (see section 11). Any other commercial use is strictly prohibited. The purchase of licenses, services or goods that are not available for free via the Site is governed by the purchase process described in Section 5 below and an agreement therefore occurs only through your offer and an acceptance by DubLi. You enter your offer by submitting an online order form, and DubLi declares its acceptance in a purchase confirmation email to you or by delivering the service or product. An order confirmation is not a purchase confirmation; it solely confirms that your order has been received.
§ 3 Expulsion of Users, Change of Offers, Cancellation and Refund
(1) DubLi has the discretion to expel or suspend users, terminate or suspend licenses and accounts, and discontinue the Site or any aspect of it at any time. DubLi may suspend or expel a user, or suspend or terminate a user’s account or licenses in its business judgment, including, without limitation, if the user has violated legal regulations, third-party rights, these Terms; or has violated, endangered, or infringed upon a legitimate interest of DubLi or the Site operator(s), particularly in case of outstanding payments or other matters for the protection of other users.
(2) DubLi is entitled to change (in particular to reduce or suspend) its services or offerings, and its fee schedule, in its sole discretion at any time and without prior notice.
§ 4 Use of Site Generally
If you comply with these Terms, we grant you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, revocable, non-assignable and non-transferable license to download, copy, display, view and use the Materials (defined in Section 18 below) publicly displayed on the Site for free to Site users (i.e., not premium content or activities for which we charge) for the purpose of viewing the Site so long as you do not do any of the following:
(a) remove, alter, or obfuscate any trademark, copyright and other proprietary notices contained in the Materials;
(b) without the prior written consent of DubLi, make derivative works of, or commercially distribute or otherwise exploit the Site or any of its Materials, or use the Site or any of its Materials in a manner that inaccurately suggests an association between you and us or our licensors;
(c) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, reverse assemble, or modify any Site source or object code or any software or other products, services, or processes accessible through any portion of the Site, or attempt to discover any source code that the Site uses to generate its content or any software or other products or processes accessible through the Site;
(d) insert or attach any code, device, technology or product to the Site or Materials including, without limitation, those that monitor the Site or its users, or negatively affect any user’s experience of the Site or otherwise negatively affect the Site, its users or us;
(e) use any meta tags or any other “hidden text” utilizing any DubLi trademarks or trade names;
(f) engage in any activities through or in connection with the Site that seek to attempt to, or do, harm any individuals or entities or are unlawful, offensive, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, threatening, harassing, or abusive, or that violate any right of any third party, or are otherwise objectionable to us;
(g) engage in any activity that interferes with a user’s access to the Site or the proper operation of the Site, or otherwise causes harm to the Site, DubLi, or other users of the Site;
(h) interfere with or circumvent any security feature of the Site or any feature that restricts or enforces limitations on use of or access to the Site or the Materials;
(i) monitor, gather, copy, or distribute such Materials (except as may be a result of standard search engine or activity or use of a standard Internet browser) on the Site by using any robot, rover, “bot,” spider, scraper, crawler, spyware, engine, device, software, extraction tool, or any other automatic device, utility, or manual process of any kind;
(j) frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any such Materials (including any images, text, or page layout); or
(k) otherwise use or exploit the Site or any Materials in any way for any purpose except as specifically permitted by these Terms without the prior written consent of an officer of DubLi.
§ 5 Purchase Completion
(1) User acknowledges and agrees that DubLi is a global company, and as a global company, may have banking relationships in countries outside of the user's country. DubLi depending on several business factors may decide to process your transactions/payments with one of its banks located outside of your country which may result in international transaction fees or other fees which the user shall be subject to and responsible to pay.
You do not have the right to use a particular payment method and available methods may change without notice. A sales contract is deemed to be concluded within the context of the checkout process between the user and DubLi in compliance with Section 2(2) of these Terms. In the DubLi Store as well as for the monthly subscriptions, the purchase price is displayed next to the product/item. All prices are retail prices and include any applicable taxes (such as sales tax). In the DubLi Store, you initiate the purchase process by clicking the “Place Order” button. This button is located in the DubLi Store under "Checkout." To initiate the order process for a monthly or annual membership, you must click the “Purchase a Subscription” button, which is located under "My Membership" in the "My Account" window.
We reserve the right to ship goods and render services not until the purchase price (including associated costs, i.e. shipping), has been received. A further prerequisite for delivery is that your account is in good standing, meaning you have no outstanding balance with us. All incoming funds will first be credited toward the outstanding balance from prior purchases and, only thereafter, toward the purchase of new products/items.
§ 6 Cancellation Terms
(1) If you are a consumer, you may cancel your contract agreement, without reasons, within seven (7) days in writing. The time limit commences when receiving the goods or with purchase of the license or service, respectively. Cancellations must be sent to:
Attention: Legal Department
17 Gr. Xenopoulou Street
3106 Limassol, Cyprus
or may be submitted online by using our contact form at www.dubli.com.
(2) In the case of an effective cancellation, we will reimburse payments for products, services and licenses, provided that they have not yet been used. We will only reimburse in the case where goods have been returned to us in undamaged, unopened and in resalable condition. If you can return goods only in a damaged condition, the amount reimbursed shall be reduced proportionately. Shipping costs will only be reimbursed based on fault for which DubLi is responsible. Your right of withdrawal against the purchase of services or licenses is voided once they have been used proportionately or completely.
You may cancel an order in our DubLi Store (see § 9) at any time during the checkout process before we provide the download link. After you receive the download link and/or the product key (if applicable) online or via email, the service is delivered. Because of its delivery method, software is not suitable for a return or reimbursement of the purchase price, and we do not accept cancellations after service delivery.
§ 7 Shopping Mall, Cashback
(1) DubLi provides a free Shopping Mall that allows you to search for products and compare prices. DubLi is not the supplier of the products listed in the Shopping Mall. DubLi provides a link to the merchant’s online shop but you will conclude a purchase contract directly with the merchant (see discussion of third-party links below). The identity of the merchant as well as its terms and conditions can be found in the "About us" section (or similar) on the website of the selected shop. In certain countries, we additionally provide the BSP Point Mall in co-operation with BSP Rewards, Inc. (“BSP”), whose contact details you will find in the footer of the BSP Points Mall subpage. BSP terms and conditions additionally apply.
(2) DubLi does not guarantee the accuracy of details listed by third-party suppliers in the Shopping Mall, in particular for product descriptions, availability and prices, as these are listed completely by the third-party suppliers. Should you identify a violation, please notify our DubLi customer support. After examining the infringement, DubLi will ask the merchant for correction and, in the case of noncompliance, we will consider suspending the violating merchant.
(3) All registered users of the DubLi Shopping Mall earn Cashback on their purchases at participating merchants. If you shop in the DubLi Shopping Mall, whether you own a subscription membership (see Section 11) or not, you will earn Cashback payable monthly into your DubLi Cash Organizer. The amount of Cashback you earn is displayed in the Shopping Mall next to each merchant. You only earn Cashback on the actual (net) purchase price of the product. Discounts, shipping, taxes, VAT and/or GST do not earn Cashback. DubLi does not guarantee the Cashback feature; Cashback is only earned on purchases reported to DubLi by the merchant. If a user is not properly logged in to the DubLi Shopping Mall or bookmarks a link to a merchant in the DubLi Shopping Mall, Cashback may be forfeited.
§ 8 Entertainment
(1) In cooperation with Agaani Music, we provide a multitude of media content, in particular a search engine for music files, an online data storage, access to online radio stations and online games. DubLi itself is not the supplier of the provided content but simply provides a link to the third-party suppliers (see discussion of third-party links below).
(2) DubLi does not assume any guarantee for the continuous provision of third-party services, especially in the case of a system failure (see Section 12 of these Terms). In addition, DubLi does not assume any guarantee for the existence of any particular content in the available data sources.
(3) You may not use the provided content except as authorized by the respective licenser or provider. It is strictly prohibited to bypass technical security measures that limit the usage of offered content. This especially applies for security measures that are designed to prevent the download and permanent storage of offered contents on a data medium as well as their transfer and reproduction. In the case of violation, DubLi reserves the right to exclude you from using the Site and bring legal action.
§ 9 Links
(1) The Site may contain links to or from third-party websites (“Linked Websites”), including websites operated by third parties who may have business relationships with us. We may have no control over the content, operations, policies, terms, or other elements of Linked Websites, and we do not assume any obligation to review any Linked Websites. We do not endorse, approve, or sponsor any Linked Websites, or any third-party content, advertising, information, materials, products, services, or other items. Furthermore, we are not responsible for the quality or delivery of the products or services offered, accessed, obtained by or advertised at such Linked Websites. Finally, we will under no circumstances be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or special loss or other damage, whether arising from negligence, breach of contract, defamation, infringement of copyright or other intellectual property rights, caused by the exhibition, distribution or exploitation of any information or content contained within these Linked Websites. Any activities you engage in connection with any of the same are subject to the privacy and other policies, terms and conditions of use, and rules issued by the operator of the Linked Websites. Any interactions, correspondence, transactions, and other dealings that you have with any third parties found on or through the Site (including on or via Linked Websites) are solely between you and the third party and we disclaim all liability in connection with therewith.
(2) We grant you the revocable permission to link to the Site; provided, however, that your web site, or any third-party websites that link to the Site: (a) must not imply that we or the Site are endorsing or sponsoring it or its products or services, unless an officer of DubLi has given prior written consent; (b) must not present false information about, or disparage, tarnish, or otherwise, in our sole opinion, harm DubLi or its products or services; (c) must not contain content that could be construed as distasteful, offensive or controversial or otherwise objectionable (in our sole opinion); and (d) must be owned and controlled by you or the person or entity placing the link, or otherwise permit you to enable such link subject to these Terms. By linking to the Site, you agree that you do and will continue to comply with the above linking requirements and all applicable laws.

Should you miss any purchases, please report them by using the tab “Missing Purchase” for further investigation from the merchant.
• Additional restrictions not yet mentioned here may apply.

§ 11 System Failures, etc.
(1) In case of a system failure or interference, or if we suspect any manipulation, etc., our services may be (temporarily) interrupted and may continue after the removal of the error. We will exercise our discretion with respect to these matters.
(2) In all cases of system failure or interference, a claim to reimbursement does not apply. Neither DubLi nor the Site operator(s) guarantees the continuous operation of the system nor are they responsible for damage resulting from the use (or lack thereof) of DubLi services by a user or third party.
