By accessing, browsing or otherwise using the Services or by clicking to accept or agree to the Terms when this option is made available to you, you (1) acknowledge that you have read and understood these Terms, (2) represent and warrant that you meet all of our eligibility requirements for using the Services as described in these Terms, and (3) accept and agree to be bound by these Terms, including any other terms applicable to the Services that are incorporated herein by reference. If you do not accept these Terms or do not satisfy the eligibility requirements set forth below, you may not access or use the Services. If you are not eligible, or do not agree to the Terms, then you do not have our permission to use the Service.

Changes to the Terms of Use.

We reserve the right to update and revise these Terms at any time. We will make sure to also change the "Last Updated" date at the top of this page so you can tell if these Terms have changed since your last visit. Any such changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. Please review these Terms regularly because once we post any changes, your continued use of the Services constitutes your acceptance of the revised Terms.

Access to Services.

By accessing the Services, you warrant that: (i) You are legally capable of entering into binding contracts; (ii) All registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (iii) You will maintain the accuracy of such information; and (iv) Your use of the Services does not violate any applicable law or regulation.

We do not require any registration or accounts beyond the download or purchase of the subscription to access the Services. Zen For Teens users may access the Services in four ways:

(i) Free Trial: A free program which gives limited access to the App and does not include all App features.

(ii) Content: Various portions of the Services may be distributed free of charge to users. We reserve the right at any time, from time to time, in our sole discretion, to alter or remove these offerings of free content through the various third party service providers.

(iii) Paid Subscription: A subscription fee-based program, which gives access to all content including and beyond the Free Trial. You can become a subscriber by purchasing a subscription to the Services through the App marketplace providers including but not limited to, the Apple iTunes Store or the Google Play store, in accordance with the respective Terms and Conditions. Please access the third party service providers to learn more about their payment processes and rules. Please note that if you purchase a subscription through the third parties, the sale is final, and we are not liable for the transaction and will not provide a refund. Your purchase will be subject to the third party’s applicable payment policy, which also may not provide for refunds. Zen For Teens offers annual and group subscription options. Zen For Teens does not administer any independent payment services, employ any third party payment service providers or otherwise enter into any relationship with third party payment service providers. When purchasing the App, you will be solely transacting through third party service providers including, but not limited to, the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play. Zen For Teens is not liable for these transactions and any issues will be resolved between you and the respective third party service provider. Zen For Teens does not, at any point, collect or retain any user credit card or other payment method information. Please refer to the terms and conditions for the relevant third party service provider for further information on their payment processes and rules.

(a) Annual Subscription: Annual subscriptions are paid for by an upfront one-off payment with automatic quarterly or annual renewals. You acknowledge and agree that the third party service provider such as the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play is authorized to charge the payment method used for (a) the initial annual subscription fee at the rate secured at the time of purchase, and (b) the renewal subscription fee(s) at the effective rate in effect at the time of any such renewal. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the renewal subscription fee to the payment method you provided. Refunds cannot be claimed for any partial subscription period.

(b) Group Subscription: Group subscriptions are established by an adult using our contact form (https://www.zenforteens.com/#contact ) that includes five (5) or more group members and are paid for by an upfront one-off payment with automatic annual renewals at the then applicable group rate (currently 50% of the annual subscription per group member for the first year).

In the course of your use of the Services, third party payment service providers may receive and implement updated credit card information from your credit card issuer in order to prevent your subscription from being interrupted by an outdated or invalid card. This disbursement of the updated credit card information is provided to third party payment service providers at the sole election of your credit card issuer. Your credit card issuer may give you the right to opt-out of the update service. Should you desire to do so, please contact your credit card issuer. Zen For Teens does not at any point receive or store any user credit card information.

Our obligation to provide the Services only comes into being when we take receipt of your order. Prices do not include local taxes unless otherwise specified. You agree not to hold us responsible for banking charges incurred due to payments on your account. You agree that you are not permitted to resell any Zen For Teens Services for commercial purposes.

This status is awarded by us to any User who: (i) is a full subscribing member with an up-to-date membership (ii) Uses the app for the greatest number of logged minutes; AND (iii) Has the highest number of shares of completed meditations or events within the app. ZEN FOR TEENS shall have sole authority in its absolute discretion to determine the award of Zenbassador status and reserves the right to use [b1] [JTB2] [b3] internal data, and any other data measuring tools to measure for Zenbassadorship.
