Terms of Sale and Use

 Welcome to thedarkroomrumour.com!

The Darkroom Rumour is an audiovisual platform that offers subscribers multimedia content (audio, video, pictures, written text, etc.). It is published by cinq26 SAS (hereinafter referred to as “cinq26”), a limited liability company organized under and pursuant to the laws of France.

 cinq26 SAS offers online subscriptions to The Darkroom Rumour. These Terms of use govern your use of the service. As used herein, the terms “service,” “our service” or “the service” mean the service provided by thedarkroomrumour.com providing access to the content, features, user interfaces and software solutions offered on the thedarkroomrumour.com website.

1. Subscription and Access.
Various offers are available in the form of monthly or annual subscriptions. Monthly subscriptions renew automatically each month unless they are cancelled. Annual service subscriptions are billed once, when they are purchased and they are also renewed automatically. Unless you cancel your subscription before your (monthly or annual) renewal date, you authorize us to bill the subscription fee for the next month or the next year according to your payment method (see “Cancellation” below). To use the thedarkroomrumour.com service online, you need internet access and a device that supports the thedarkroomrumour.com service and you must provide us with an up-to-date, valid and accepted payment method that you may change at any time (the “Payment Method”). You will find the specific details of your subscription to the thedarkroomrumour.com service by visiting our website and clicking on the Your Account link on the thedarkroomrumour.com website.


 2. Free Trials
The Darkroom Rumour can sometimes offers a free trial period. If so, this free trial period begins when you click on “Begin my free trial,” select a subscription and complete the subscription process. The free trial period for your subscription lasts 7 days or as otherwise specified. Free trials are reserved for new subscribers and certain old users. The Darkroom Rumour reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to determine your eligibility for a free trial.

 We start billing the subscription fee to the payment method you provide at the end of the free trial period, unless you cancel your subscription before the end of this trial period. To display the specific details of your free trial or of your subscription, click on the “my information” section in the subscriber space on our website.

 You will never receive any notification from us that your free trial period is over and that the paid part of your subscription has begun. We will continue to bill your subscription fee to your payment method until you cancel the service.


3. Subscription Billing
We use the Stripe payment platform to handle payments, billing and managing subscriptions for all of our services. At no time do cinq26 or the thedarkroomrumour.com website have any access to payment information.

  1. Billing Cycle. Subscription fees for our service are billed each month or each year according to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the date on which your paid subscription started. In some cases, the schedule of your payment may vary, for example, if your Payment Method does not work or if your paid subscription began on a day that does not appear in a given month. Go to our website and click on the My Account page to see the date of your next billing. In connection with annual subscriptions, you will be informed of the renewal of your subscription a few days in advance and you will be free to refuse it. To do so, go to our website and click on the My Account page and cancel your subscription. Subscription renewals are at the same price as the initial subscription, not including any discounts or special offers proposed at the time of the first subscription or of a subscription renewal. In such a case, please refer to the terms of the offer or of the discount used.
  2. Payment Method. You can pay for your subscription using the Payment Methods offered by the thedarkroomrumour.com website when you purchase your subscription. You can change your Payment Method by going to our website and clicking on the My Account page. If a payment does not go through because of the expiration of a payment card, insufficient funds in an account or for any other reason related to the invalidity of the Payment Method, we reserve the right to suspend your access to our service until a valid Payment Method is provided. You authorize us to continue to bill you for this/these fee(s) via the Payment Method selected, once it is updated, and you accept that you owe any amount unpaid. Such a situation may result in a change in your billing dates. For some Payment Methods, the issuers of the Payment Method may charge you fees for foreign exchange transactions or other fees. Please contact the issuer of your Payment Method for further information.
  3. Cancellation of Service. You can cancel your subscription online at thedarkroomrumour.com at any time and you will continue to be able to access the service until the end of your billing period.
