Navigation on some of the Website’s sections and the use of some the Services offered on the Website can be used entirely or partially free of charge. Some sections of the Website can be visited by Users who are not Registered. We may, even temporarily, make some Services available to Users who are not Registered. We may also allow Users who are not Registered to access some areas of the Website that are normally reserved for Registered or Subscribed users. The majority of the Services and the features associated with said Services, can be used exclusively by Registered Users or Subscribed Users. In some cases it is possible to register to the Website through a Wireless Device by sending an SMS or an MMS or by following the WAP procedure. In this case the Mobile Carrier, in accordance with its conditions, may charge a fee to the User who makes such a request, even if the Service via web is free of charge and even if the Mobile Carrier does not require a fee to become a Subscribed User following the procedure via web.
Users who want to register or subscribe to the Services must provide the Company with some personal data and must follow the Service registration and/or activation procedure shown at the time of Registration or at the time of request for subscription to the Service. The authentication process is part of the normal security procedures. The purpose is to protect the security of the User and make sure that the User is truly interested in registering or activating the Service. In some cases, the Company will send a password (PIN) to the mobile telephone number entered upon registration or entered upon request for activation of a Service. This PIN must then be re-entered on the online form in order to confirm the previously entered mobile telephone number, as well as to confirm that the user is truly interested in activating the Service requested. In other cases, the User may be asked to send an SMS to a special number to confirm his/her desire to activate the service.
Upon registration or upon request for activation of a Service the User may be asked to choose a username that will be used together with the PIN or with the chosen password to access the section reserved for Registered Users and/or Users who have activated a Service.
The User who plans to register or subscribe to a Service through the authentication procedure hereby warrants and guarantees that he/she is of age of majority, that the personal data provided is true, correct, up-to-date and refers to the person who is entering the data or with consent if entered by a third party, hereby assuming any and all liability for the correctness and truthfulness of the information provided.

If the User does not complete the procedure for Registration or for Subscription to a Service after providing his/her e-mail address and/or mobile telephone number or other data requested for activation, the User may receive a limited number of messages that will be sent to conclude the subscription process and describe the Service for which the subscription procedure had begun.
Knowledge of the User’s Access Codes by third parties may allow for unauthorized access by third parties to the Website and/or to the activated Services. Registered or Subscribed Users must therefore be very careful with their Access Codes, keeping them confidential. If your Access Codes are lost or stolen, you must contact the Company immediately. The Company will arrange for the deactivation and substitution of your Access Codes. The User shall be liable, directly and indirectly, for any and all improper and unlawful use of the Services, carried out by himself/herself or by third parties who use the Services in his/her name.
This service has a cost of [price] [frequency].
Some Services offered are offered to Subscribed Users or Registered Users (following their request) upon payment of a fee that will be paid in accordance with the payment methods indicated under the section entitled PAYMENT AND PAYMENT METHODS.
Pay Services can be provided a) by subscription, that is to say in a continuative way and following request for activation of the Service by the User and until the Subscribed User requests deactivation or until the supply terminates for other reasons mentioned below b) by request for a “one shot” service, that is to say limited to the one time use of the requested Service.
In particular, the pay and open-ended subscription Service for mobile devices allows for the use of features and services, including subscription services, referable to the following macro category: download entertainment content such as ringtones, games, graphics, news and other information downloadable on compatible mobile devices and/or through the internet pages (WEB and/or WAP) and/or via SMS (Short Message Service) and/or voice access numbers or video calls.
Details regarding the pay Service and regarding the subscription cost (and all other costs) for the use of the Service are available in the Info & Costs section.
Subscribed Users may choose at any time whether to use the Services made available to them and having unlimited access to this services. To subscribe the User must have a mobile telephone number on which he/she may request activation of the Service. The User has the possibility of paying for the Service via mobile (or by credit card or by paypal).

To use the Service via mobile devices the mobile phone must be compatible and correctly configured. The list of compatible devices can be found on the Website. Users must verify on the Website, before activating the Service, that their mobile phone is compatible. We recommend that Users, in addition to verifying that their mobile phone is correctly configured to use the Service, also verify with their Mobile Carriers on the customer service site regarding the activation of the Service.
The subscription fee is a fixed fee and shall be owed regardless of whether the Service has been used in whole or in part. If User deactivates the subscription Service before using the Services at the Users’ disposal, the User will lose his or her right to use the subscription Service and subject to any Non-Excludable Condition the User will not have the right to an alternative service or restitution or refund of the payment made.
Information regarding costs, activation and deactivation conditions, services, the quantity and type of content included in the subscription, compatible cellular phones and all other information regarding the subscription Service can be found in the Info & Costs section of the Website.
Upon request for activation of the Service, the Service is immediately made available to the requesting User and it is immediately supplied to the User (once the User has given his/her consent for payment in accordance with these T&C). – For User satisfaction and in order to avoid supplying the Service to a User who is no longer interested in receiving it, the Company hereby gives Users the right to deactivate the Service at any time (subject to any Non-Excludable Condition without restitution or refund of any amounts paid or to be paid before the request for deactivation, as withdrawal is not retroactive). For further information regarding the right to withdrawal we kindly invite Users to contact us through our Help Form available on the Website or by writing to us at [support_email]
In virtue of the payment system adopted (payment through telephone credit), the User, in rare cases, may receive in the period immediately following the communication of withdrawal a final SMS drawing from his/her mobile credit. Due to mobile network traffic congestion, an SMS drawing from the User’s mobile credit may have been sent out before the User’s request for deactivation was received by us, even if the said SMS is received after his/her request for deactivation.
In the event that Services offered by third parties on our Website or Services that provide for payment through mobile credit, and in general when a wireless service or mobile service is used, the Company hereby reminds you that such Services are offered by Mobile Carriers with the collaboration of the Company, as Content provider. The User is therefore subject to the conditions of the Mobile Carrier. We kindly request that you take note of the aforementioned conditions of your Mobile Carrier.
In the event of pay Services through mobile credit the Mobile Carrier will provide for sending the User, periodically, in accordance with the frequency indicated in the Info & Costs section, one or more SMS that will charge the User, upon receiving the message, for the payment of an amount equal to the cost of the Service.
The payment method occurs in the same way for payment through a fixed line, the Mobile Carrier will periodically charge the subscription price directly through the telephone bill of the User who requested the activation of the Service.
All telephone connection costs and WAP and/or WEB GSM/GPRS/UMTS traffic costs (which are clearly outlined in the Info & Costs section) are not included in the subscription price and should therefore be considered additional costs. The User is also responsible for any and all internet connection costs and/or costs related to hardware/ software and more generally all costs necessary for the use of the services, which are not included in the price of the subscription.
If payment for the subscription is not made (for whatever reason; for example if the User’s mobile credit runs out) the Service may be suspended at any time, in whole or in part, and the User may not be able to use his/her unpaid credits even before the Service is suspended.
