7. Term of the Services, termination

Your contract with Movido (i.e. your subscription to our own Services) is concluded for an indefinite period. You can unsubscribe at any time by sending a request to Movido, either by email or directly on the Application.

You are expressly informed and agree that such termination will result in the termination of all subscriptions to our partner Providers' services at the end of the current month.

You purchase a monthly subscription from each Provider as part of the Settle in Pack, which begins on the day of your subscription request, subject to payment of the price in accordance with the "Financial Terms" section, for a period of one month, from date to date.

Each of your subscriptions taken out with our partner Providers is then tacitly renewed for successive periods of the same duration as the initial period (the "Periods"), from date to date, unless you request the termination directly on the Application or by email, at any time.

Termination will take effect at the end of the Period and will result in the automatic deletion of each of the accounts subscribed to with the Providers, as well as all the corresponding stored content.

Any subscription period started is due in full.

According to Article L215-1 of the Consumer Code:

"For contracts for the provision of services concluded for a fixed term with a tacit renewal clause, the professional providing the services shall inform the consumer in writing, by dedicated letter or e-mail, at the earliest three months and at the latest one month before the end of the period authorizing the rejection of the renewal, of the possibility of not renewing the contract he/she has concluded with a tacit renewal clause. This information, delivered in clear and understandable terms, shall mention, in a visible box, the deadline for non-renewal.

When this information has not been sent to him/her in accordance with the provisions of the first paragraph, the consumer may terminate the contract free of charge at any time after the renewal date.

Advances made after the last renewal date or, in the case of open-ended contracts, after the date of conversion of the initial fixed-term contract, shall in this case be reimbursed within thirty days of the date of termination, after deduction of the sums corresponding, up to that date, to the performance of the contract. The provisions of this article apply without prejudice to those which by law subject certain contracts to special rules as regards consumer information."

8. Financial Conditions
