3. Description of and further provisions in relation to the Service(s)
3.1 The Service(s) provided by Ludduvuddu can be described as an online Coach for the broken hearted. In this context Ludduvuddu operates a website/platform that aims to heal the broken heart of a User or a friend of the User. This is done by sending personal tips, tricks and tools daily, by mail or email, to the User or their friend for a period of four weeks/28 days in order to empower the receiver to fight their way through every phase of a broken heart. This service is free but can be supplemented with different Packages and/or other paid Services as detailed on the Website. Payment methods for these Packages are indicated on the Website (by Ideal or credit card). Furthermore, as part of the Services Ludduvuddu intends to organise Events under the brand name Ludduvuddu Events.
3.2 In order to make use of the Service, a User must register themselves (or a friend) in accordance with the procedure set out on the Website. If a friend is specified, this person becomes a User for the purposes of these General Terms & Conditions. When registering, a password and email address are required. The User is responsible for ensuring that his or her own email address or the email address of the person on whose behalf the Service is requested is correct. In addition, a number of questions must be completed in order to create a Ludduvuddu user profile and to ensure that the Service can be specifically tailored to the individual. After registration the User will receive an email from Ludduvuddu containing an explanation of the Service and (if appropriate) other information such as a personal message from one User to another User if the latter did not register themselves.
3.3 Once the User has received the email from Ludduvuddu as set out in Article 3.2 they will then get access to their own User’s dashboard where all the personal tips, tricks and tools received from Ludduvuddu will be displayed. This section of the Website/platform may also display adverts which have been specifically selected for the User. If the User has registered for the Service on behalf of a friend and does not use the Service themselves then this User will also have a so called Friend Dashboard. This allows the User to see how their friend is doing. This also allows a User to send another User (friend) an extra gift or a so called ‘Little acts of support’ to cheer the User up. Such a Support is created by the User and can, for example, be a tip as to somewhere to go possibly with an appropriate web-link attached. The User hereby gives Ludduvuddu permission to use such user-created Supports for other Users except where such Support contains personal details or photographs.
3.4 On the creation of a password on the Website a User can log into his or her own dashboard via email or through Facebook Connect or other possible tools.
3.5 A User can unsubscribe at any time by using the so called ‘Ho-Stop’ button on the Website. If the User has purchased a Package for him or herself Ludduvuddu will ensure that any outstanding gifts shall be sent at once to the User. If the User had purchased the Service for a friend but that friend does not accept the Ludduvuddu confirmation email then Ludduvuddu shall send the relevant gifts in a single mailing to the User who originally registered for the Service.
3.6 If a User is specified by another User but does not want to use the Service(s) he/she can at any time unsubscribe via the Ho-Stop button on the Website or by sending an email to Ludduvuddu at firstname.lastname@example.org On receiving such a request, Ludduvuddu will immediately delete the relevant User account.
3.7 If the User is younger than 18 years old parental consent is required before making use of the Service(s). An underage User must be able to demonstrate that they have received such consent if requested to do so by Ludduvuddu.
3.8 Performance of the Agreement on the part of Ludduvuddu shall be to the best of its ability and in accordance with the expectations generated by the quality of the look, image and brand experience created by Ludduvuddu. Ludduvuddu offers no guarantee that at the end of the Agreement the User’s broken heart will in fact be healed and the heartbreak completely disappeared. Ludduvuddu has an obligation to the User and not as to the result.
3.9 The User’s performance of the Agreement and the putting into practice of the personal tips, tricks and tools provided by Ludduvuddu as part of the Service shall be entirely the User’s own responsibility, at their own risk and for their own account. In accordance with Article 7 of these General Terms & Conditions Ludduvuddu accepts no liability whatsoever for any damage that may arise as a result of the implementation of the Agreement by the User.
3.10 In order to provide the gifts which form part of the Packages and the Products sold via the Webshop Ludduvuddu has the right to use Suppliers. These Suppliers are selected by Ludduvuddu with the greatest of care.

4.3 If the amount paid by the User is, in Ludduvuddu’s opinion, wrongly cancelled or payment is not otherwise duly made within 14 days of the creation of the Agreement, the User shall be in default without further proof being required and Ludduvuddu shall be entitled to charge the statutory interest rate. In such a case Ludduvuddu is entitled to suspend the Agreement with immediate effect without the need of further judicial intervention. The interest on the amount due shall be calculated from the moment that the User defaults until the moment of settlement of the full amount. In the absence of timely payment, the User is also liable for all reasonable legal and other non-legal costs.
