By registering or buying/subscribing a Premium Product, the user confirms his/her knowledge and the unlimited recognition of the content of these T&C as well as that all registration data is true, accurate, current, and complete, and he/she will keep all registration information up to date.
Each user shall register with EGO360 once only, and confirms with his/her registration that he/she has not registered an account with EGO360 before and has not deleted a previously activated user account.
Following successful registration, the user (then the “Registered User”) can log on to the Platform by:
- entering his/her email address and the chosen password, or
- accomplishing the login via Facebook Connect or Google Sign-In.
Rights of EGO360

In any event, EGO360 reserves the right to contact you at any time to verify your registration data.
EGO360 is not responsible for the actual identity of the user, since personal identification via the internet is possible only to a limited extent.

EGO360 may deliver invoices and payment reminders to the user by email.
When the Premium Product is a Subscription and the Subscription period expires, your credit card will be charged automatically with the standard Subscription price which was valid at the time of Subscription, i.e., special offer prices do not apply in this case, and your Subscription will be renewed for the same period of time unless you cancel your Subscription, at least prior to the expiration of your current Subscription. The standard Subscription price can be viewed on the Platforms or in the App Stores (depending on Premium Product Type).
You may cancel your Subscription to EGO360 Premium Product at any time by initiating the cancellation on the Platforms or via the App Store (depending on Premium Product Type). Unless otherwise provided for, EGO360 will not refund previously paid amounts.
