The User may terminate the Free Membership at any time without cause. The User may deliver notice of termination using the contact form available on all CHECKBILLIARD Services at any time. The termination notice shall include the User’s registered name and an email address of the User registered on one of the CHECKBILLIARD Services.
The User may terminate the Paid Membership without cause to the end of the minimum runtime chosen by the User in the course of the registration process, or to the end of any renewal period after said minimum runtime expires, by giving notice of fourteen (14) business days. The user may deliver notice of termination using the contact form available on all CHECKBILLIARD Services, or by sending a fax or letter to CHECKBILLIARD. The termination notice shall include the registered name of the User and an email address of the User registered on the CHECKBILLIARD Services. If the User has terminated the Paid Membership, the User is entitled to retain a Free Membership until such termination takes effect. The provisions of this section shall not affect the right of both parties to terminate the agreement for good cause.
A good cause is defined as an event which makes it unacceptable for CHECKBILLIARD to continue the agreement to the end of the termination period, taking into account all circumstances of the individual case and weighing the interests of CHECKBILLIARD against the User’s. A good cause includes any the following events:
If the User fails to comply with any applicable legal provisions
If the User breaches a contractual obligation, in particular an obligation set forth in sections 3 and 5 of these GTC
If the reputation of the services offered on the CHECKBILLIARD Services is substantially impaired by the online-presence of the User (if, for example, it is discovered after registration that the User has been convicted of a criminal offence, and if said conviction is known to other users);
If the User promotes any communities or associations (or any of their methods or activities) which are under surveillance by authorities responsible for public safety or the protection of minors, or;
If the User causes harm to any other user(s)
If the User is a member of a religious sect or a denomination that is controversial in Germany.
In the event of a good cause in accordance with this section and notwithstanding CHECKBILLIARD’s right to terminate the contract in accordance with this section, CHECKBILLIARD is entitled to:
Delete the content posted by the User
Issue a warning, or
Block the User’s access to the services on the CHECKBILLIARD Services.
In the following cases, the User shall not be entitled to claim reimbursement of any advance payments:
If CHECKBILLIARD has terminated the contract for good cause pursuant to section 7,
If CHECKBILLIARD has blocked the User’s access in accordance with section 5, or
If the User has terminated the agreement. However, the User’s right to claim reimbursement of any advance payments shall not be excluded in this case if the User has terminated the agreement for a good cause attributable to CHECKBILLIARD.
