The Apps may be available through marketplaces that distribute mobile applications and that may have additional terms, conditions and usage rules that govern your use of the Apps if you download or install any of the Apps through such marketplaces.
Depending on the laws of the jurisdiction where you live, you may have certain rights that cannot be waived through this Agreement and that are in addition to the terms of this Agreement, and certain provisions of this Agreement may be unenforceable as to you.

The Apps leverage several technologies to provide you with various blocking, screening and other features.

Recorn offers you the ability to submit or post content through your use of the Services, social features available within the Services, our social media pages on third party social media platforms and your submission of reviews of our Services through us or third party platforms. Any User Content submitted must be in strict compliance with this Agreement. You shall be solely liable for any User Content you submit or transmit using the Services. “User Content” means video, images, text, comments, app store reviews (including the public-facing user name as it appears with the review), audio recordings and other content, that you upload, post or transmit (collectively “submit”) to the Services or any of our social media pages or by providing a review through a third party service.

However, Recorn has the right (but not the obligation) to monitor your conduct and User Content submission and you hereby provide your irrevocable consent to such monitoring. You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of privacy concerning your submission of any User Content.
By posting or submitting User Content to the Services, on our social media pages or by providing a review of the Services to us or a third party, you hereby grant Recorn and its affiliates a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers) royalty-free license and right to use, copy, transmit, distribute, publicly perform and display (through all media now known or hereafter created), and make derivative works from your User Content (including without limitation, your name and likeness, photographs, testimonials and reviews) for any purpose whatsoever commercial or otherwise without compensation to you. In addition, you waive any so-called “moral rights” or “performance rights” in your User Content. If you prefer that we do not use your reviews for promotional purposes, contact the applicable App support email provided in the Customer Support section of this Agreement.
- Ownership of the Account
Recorn recognizes the owner of your mobile device’s phone number on the account as the sole owner of the account. You are fully responsible for all transactions undertaken by means of the account. You shall notify us immediately and confirm in writing any unauthorized use of your account. You are the sole and exclusive guardian of any password that you may use to access the Service. If you provide any information in connection with your subscription, you agree to maintain accurate, complete and current information. You agree that in order to accommodate certain requests by you, we may require you to verify your ownership of an account by sending a verification code to the phone number on the account and/or by requesting reasonable documentation to show your ownership of the number and account.
- Subscription Services and Payment; Auto-Renewal
You may choose to purchase a monthly or annual subscription and download the Apps through the Apple App Store or Google Play. Alternatively, you may subscribe to our Services through one of our websites and then download the related App through the Apple App Store or Google Play.
When you purchase a subscription – whether through a third-party platform or directly through us – payment may be processed by third parties who act on our behalf or directly by the mobile platform owner (e.g. Apple or Google). Rates for services are listed in each App and in the applicable App Store and on our websites. Recorn reserves the right to modify its rates at any time and/or to offer special promotions. All payments are non-refundable. Subscription payments will auto-renew unless cancelled in accordance with this Agreement. If you purchased an App through Apple or Google and have a billing dispute, you must contact the App Store or Google Play as applicable to seek a remedy. If you purchased a subscription to our Services through one of our websites, contact us at the applicable email available in the Customer Support section of this Agreement.
We may provide a free trial period during which you can use all features of the Services for a limited period of time. You acknowledge and agree that your free-trial subscription will automatically renew as a paid subscription unless you cancel before the end of the trial period in accordance with the Cancellation section of this Agreement.
Paid subscriptions to our Services are auto-renewing. You will be charged the stated subscription amount for the subscription period upon completion of your registration and submission of your payment information or, if applicable, at the end of your free trial period if you have not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of the expiration of the trial period. You hereby agree to and authorize automatic (recurring) billing, and you agree to pay the charges made to your account in connection therewith. You will be billed at the then-current applicable subscription price plus any applicable taxes. Payments for renewal subscriptions are processed using the same billing cycle as your current subscription. Subscription fees may change at any time, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law. Your Subscription, and monthly billing of your account, will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you in accordance with the Cancellation section of this Agreement.
If you obtained an App from a mobile platform owner (e.g. Apple or Google), you may discontinue your subscription and recurring payments at any time by following the Apple App Store or Google Play Store instructions. If you have a paid subscription, you will not be entitled to any refund of unused balances if you discontinue your subscription. There are no refunds on subscriptions once the charge has gone through for the billing period.
If you purchase and/or subscribe to our Services directly through one of our websites and you do not wish for your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription: log into your account through the applicable App’s website, click on Manage Subscription, then Cancel Subscription and follow the instructions provided. If you make payments through a third-party payments vendor such as Paypal or Apple Pay, you may be directed to cancel your subscription and recurring payments through such third-party provider. Your cancellation will take effect starting at the end of the billing period in which your cancellation was made. For example, if you have a monthly subscription that began on the first of the month but cancel mid-month, your cancellation will take effect as of the beginning of the following month. Sorry — there are no refunds on subscriptions once the charge has gone through for the billing period. For more information on cancellation, you can visit the Apps support page provided in the Supplemental Terms section of this Agreement.
Note to users who have enabled conditional or unconditional call forwarding: If you cancel your subscription, you must deactivate your account by deactivating the call forward feature on your mobile. If you fail to deactivate call forwarding, you will not receive your voicemail messages and may experience other problems with your mobile phone service.
