Article 4. Transactions
4.1. Every OUTtv offer, including but not limited to the offer to purchase a Subscription or the provision of Content through the Service, on the Website or otherwise, is not binding.
4.2. A Transaction between the User and OUTtv enters into effect after the User takes a Subscription and/or rents certain individual pieces of Content. The right to access this Content takes effect after OUTtv receives the fee for the aforementioned Subscription and/or individual pieces of content. A Subscription enters into effect on the day OUTtv confirms the User registration, after the associated Transaction is completed.
4.3. Each Subscription has a minimum duration, which is indicated by OUTtv in the Subscription process. Therefore, a Subscription can only be cancelled on or after the minimum duration date.
4.4. After the minimum duration, the Subscription is automatically converted into a Subscription for an indefinite period, which can be terminated at any moment under observance of a one-month notice period.
4.5. In certain cases, as indicated, individual pieces of Content can be purchased. When renting the individual pieces of Content and after conclusion of the associated transaction, the User is entitled to watch said content for the period indicated by OUTtv. The individual pieces of Content can be watched on those devices to which the User’s Service applies.
Article 5. Payment
5.1. When entering a Transaction for a Subscription and/or the purchasing of individual pieces of Content (if applicable), the User owes OUTtv a remuneration. The amount owed is indicated by OUTtv before entering into a Transaction.

5.4. The User is expected to pay the amount owed for the minimum duration of a Subscription and/or individual pieces of Content immediately upon making said Transaction, unless otherwise agreed.

The selection of available payment methods may be amended from time to time if this is deemed necessary by OUTtv for its business operations.
5.5. After expiry of the minimum duration of a Subscription, the fee due is either deducted monthly by OUTtv from the bank account indicated by the User on the calendar day on which the Subscription entered into effect, or the amount owed is settled in a different manner. In some cases, OUTtv may choose to amend the payment date, e.g. if the remuneration could not be debited or if the Subscription entered into effect on a calendar day that is not present in a certain month. The level of remuneration for the Subscription can be amended unilaterally by OUTtv after expiry of the minimum duration; however, such price amendments only enter into effect one month after notification of the User. § 2.3 shall apply by analogy.
