5. Conclusion of a paid subscription

  1. In order for the user to be able to use the services of LEX AI to the full extent, additional service packages are available to the user after registration in the form of paid subscriptions ("subscription accesses").

  2. LEX AI currently offers the following paid subscriptions:

    • The LEX AI BASIC service package: entitles you to access the newsfeed.

    • The LEX AI PRO service package: entitles you to access the newsfeed and the entire content.

  3. The user makes a legally binding offer for a paid subscription when he enters the data requested from him in the online order form and selects the button "order subject to payment" at the end of the order process. In doing so, the user makes a legally binding offer to conclude a contract for a paid subscription.

  5. The user can conclude the contract for a paid subscription through an in-app purchase via the LEX AI iOS or Android app. To do this, the user must select the desired option on the subscription screen within the app, whereupon a pop-up appears in which the user must enter a password for the third-party app store. As soon as the user has done this, a pop-up appears in which the user has to confirm the purchase of the subscription again. At this point, the user can still cancel the process.

The user should then receive a confirmation of receipt from the third-party app store (and not directly from LEX AI). LEX AI will send the user the declaration of acceptance (order confirmation) by separate email. In this case, the text of the contract (consisting of the order, the GTC and the order confirmation) is sent to the user by LEX AI on a durable medium (e-mail) as contract confirmation. From this day on, the respective subscription begins. The text of the contract is stored in compliance with data protection laws.
