4. Your obligations when using the platform
4.1 Your general obligations
Your account on the Platform must not be used in violation of these Terms. If you find out that your account is being used in violation of these Terms, for example by violation of safety measures or unauthorized use of your account, you shall immediately inform VOYD in writing.

• to not in any way contribute to or interfere with the functions of the Platform or in any other way limit the use of the Platform,

• to not copy, reproduce, distribute, send, show, sell, license or use other user’s or VOYD’s content without written consent from the owner of the content or other such right holder, and to not violate any applicable laws and regulations.
4.2 Live performances
One of the services provided on the Platform is the possibility to view live performances. As a viewer you must have an internet connection that fulfils the prevailing applicable requirements. You will find applicable requirements [here]. If your internet connection does not fulfil these requirements, you cannot expect that the live performance can be viewed without errors or disruptions. If your internet connection, wholly or partly, is the cause of you not being able to view a performance without error or disruption or at all, you as a viewer understand and accept that you have no right to a refund of the Fee (see definition in clause 5 below) on those grounds.
4.3 Reporting of available content
If you perceive that any available content does not fulfil promised quality or if the content creator infringes third party rights, violates applicable law or makes available content that is offensive, inappropriate, disgusting or illegal on the Platform, we ask you to report this to VOYD as soon as possible.
5. Purchase of tickets
As a viewer you may purchase tickets on the Platform to live performances and pay for access to a content creator’s available content (the “Fee”). When paying a Fee to VOYD, a part of the Fee will be paid from VOYD to the content creator.
You can pay the Fee through the payment options VOYD at each time provides for the Platform.
As a viewer you recognize that VOYD is not responsible for any such payment service or for any losses due to unauthorized use of your payment card, credit card or other means of payment that is provided by a third party in connection with your use of the Service. In case there is any conflict between these Terms and any third party user terms, these Terms shall prevail between you and VOYD.
Some Services provided by VOYD may be provided as a subscription service, subject to ongoing automatic payments. Terms specifically applicable for the subscription are stated in the description of the specific Service and are supplementary to the Terms set out herein. In case of contradictions between these Terms and the terms in the description of the specific Service, the description shall prevail e.g. in relation to termination of Service.
A subscription can apply on an annual basis, i.e. payment is deducted once a year, or as a monthly subscription against monthly payments. Annual subscriptions will be automatically renewed annually, unless terminated at the latest 30 days before the end of the current subscription term. VOYD may send a reminder to you in advance of the termination deadline, however VOYD is not obliged to do so.
Monthly subscriptions will be terminated with a minimum of one month’s notice, in relation to the date the subscription started. This means for example that if the subscription started January 15th and you wish to end it by April, you need to terminate the subscription on March 15th at the latest. The subscription period will then end April 15th. No reminders will be sent by VOYD with regard to monthly subscriptions.
7. Access to available content
The content creator decides the period of time that you as a viewer shall have access to view the content you have paid for. The time period can alternate but is always stated in connection with the purchase. You have access to the content as long as specified by the content creator, unless earlier removed by VOYD due to reasons such as that it has lacking quality, infringes third party rights, violates applicable law or if the content is offensive, inappropriate, disgusting or illegal.
8. Refund in case of interrupted viewing
If you have bought a ticket to a live performance or paid a Fee for access to available content and the live performance or the available content is removed or interrupted because of lacking quality, infringement of third party rights, violation of applicable law or if the content is illegal, you have a right to a refund of the Fee. VOYD will in its own discretion decide whether a live performance or available content shall be removed or interrupted. In connection with this, VOYD also has the possibility to decide under what conditions refunds shall be made.
9. Right of withdrawal
These Terms do not limit the consumer rights granted to you through mandatory legislation in the country where you have your domicile.
If mandatory consumer rights regulations of your domicile give you a right of withdrawal, you may invoke such right by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use a standard form for right of withdrawal, which can be found [here]/on the national consumer protection authority’s webpage].
If the Service is commenced immediately after purchase – which will be the case for most of the purchases on VOYD – an exception from the right of withdrawal for purchases of digital content may be applicable. You may also be liable to pay for already provided purchased content at the time of your invocation of your right of withdrawal.
