Purchases

Fees

Quiet Time exists with both a free and paid for premium version. In its initial instance the premium version will not be available. Quiet Time offers certain enhanced features of the Services which you can purchase as a monthly, yearly or lifetime subscription (Subscription). A description of features associated with Subscriptions is available via the Services. When you purchase a Subscription or a Product (each, a Transaction), we may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, such as your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card and your address(es) for billing and delivery (such information, Payment Information). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. The amounts due and payable by you for a Transaction through the Services will be presented to you before you place your order.  If you choose to initiate a Transaction via the Services, you authorize us to provide your Payment Information to third party service providers so we can complete your Transaction and agree (a) to pay the applicable fees and any taxes; (b) that Quiet Time may charge your credit card or third party payment processing account, including, but not limited to, your account with the app store or distribution platform (like the Apple App Store, Google Play or the Amazon Appstore) where the App is made available (each, an App Provider), for verification, pre-authorization and payment purposes; and (c) to bear any additional charges that your App Provider, bank or other financial service provider may levy on you as well as any taxes or fees that may apply to your order.  Youll receive a confirmation email after we confirm the payment for your order. Your order is not binding on Quiet Time until accepted and confirmed by Quiet Time. All payments made are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms.

If you have any concerns or objections regarding charges, you agree to raise them with us first and you agree not to cancel or reject any credit card or third party payment processing charges unless you have made a reasonable attempt at resolving the matter directly with Quiet Time.

Quiet Time reserves the right to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances, for example, if your credit card is declined, if we suspect the request or order is fraudulent, or in other circumstances Quiet Time deems appropriate in its sole discretion. Quiet Time also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity in connection with your order. You may need to provide additional information to verify your identity before completing your Transaction (such information is included within the definition of Payment Information). Quiet Time will either not charge you or refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.

Return Policy

Subscriptions Automatically Renew Until You Cancel & How to Cancel Your Subscription

All amounts are payable and charged: (i) for one-off purchase (e.g. lifetime Subscription), at the time you place your order; and (ii) For monthly or yearly subscriptions, at the beginning of the subscription and, because each such subscription renews automatically for an additional period equal in length to the expiring subscription term until you cancel it, at the time of each renewal until you cancel, using the Payment Information you have provided. You must cancel your monthly or yearly Subscription before it renews to avoid the billing of the fees for the next Subscription period. If you purchase your Subscription via the Site, you can cancel the renewal of your subscription at any time by contacting us by email at Support@qt-app.com. If you purchase your Subscription via an App Provider, you can cancel the renewal of your subscription at any time with the App Provider. You will not receive a refund for the fees you already paid for your current subscription period and you will continue to receive the Services ordered until the end of your current Subscription period.

Changes to Price Terms for Subscriptions

Quiet Time reserves the right to change its pricing terms for Subscriptions at any time and Quiet Time will notify you in advance of such changes becoming effective. Changes to the pricing terms will not apply retroactively and will only apply for Subscription renewals after such changed pricing terms have been communicated to you. If you do not agree with the changes to Quiet Times pricing terms then you may choose not to renew your Subscription in accordance with the section Subscriptions Automatically Renew Until You Cancel & How to Cancel Your Subscription.

Dispute Resolution

Governing Law

Agreement to Arbitrate

You and Quiet Time agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Services, Products or Content (collectively, Disputes) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a partys copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an IP Protection Action). Without limiting the preceding sentence, you will also have the right to litigate any other Dispute if you provide Quiet Time with written notice of your desire to do so by email at support@qt-app.com within thirty (30) days following the date you first agree to these Terms (such notice, an Arbitration Opt-out Notice). If you dont provide Quiet Time with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice within the thirty (30) day period, you will be deemed to have knowingly and intentionally waived your right to litigate any Dispute except as expressly set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action or, if you timely provide Quiet Time with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, will be the United Kingdom and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. Unless you timely provide Quiet Time with an Arbitration Opt-out Notice, you acknowledge and agree that you and Quiet Time are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Quiet Time otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one persons claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolutionsection will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this Dispute Resolutionsection will survive any termination of these Terms.

By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Quiet Time in accordance with the provisions of this Dispute Resolutionsection as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).

General Terms

These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Quiet Time and you regarding the Services, Products and Content, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Quiet Time and you regarding the Services, Products and Content. If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable (either by an arbitrator appointed pursuant to the terms of the Arbitrationsection above or by court of competent jurisdiction, but only if you timely opt out of arbitration by sending us an Arbitration Opt-out Notice in accordance with the terms set forth above), that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Quiet Times prior written consent.
