By registering for the Service on the Website or in the Application, the User of the Service (hereinafter referred to as the User) will gain access to those parts and services which, based on the Operator's decision, are subject to registration. For the use of some parts of the Service, the Operator may be required to meet additional conditions (e.g. for Paid Content).
The method of registration and the data required for registration, as well as for the registration of the registered User to the Service, are determined by the Operator. The operator is entitled to change the rules for registration and access to the Service.
The registration applies simultaneously to all Internet pages and to those Applications that use the same interface as the Internet pages for registration, i.e. by registering, the User gains access to all Internet pages and also to the above-mentioned Applications to the extent that they are conditional on registration, with the exception of those parts to which another condition set by the Operator must be met in order to gain access. Some Applications have a separate registration, in which case the registration under this paragraph does not apply to them.
The Operator is entitled to suspend or cancel the User's access to the Service on the basis of his registration in the event that the registered User violates the provisions of these terms or legal regulations, the terms of competitions, auctions, online games or other events organized on the Website or in Application, or if the Operator has reasonable suspicion that the User's registration data is being used by another person in addition to the User. In the cases mentioned in this paragraph, there is no right to a refund of a proportional part of the subscription, nor to compensation for damages.
III. Paid content
Some Internet pages and Applications contain, in addition to freely accessible content, also content that is only accessible to registered Users after meeting the conditions specified in paragraph 3 of this article (hereinafter referred to as "Paid Content").

after paying the payment for making it available (for the period for which the payment was made)
upon fulfillment of another condition set by the Operator and stated in the conditions for providing the relevant Paid Content.
Registration alone does not establish the User's right to access Paid Content.
Paid content will be made available without undue delay after:
registration of payment for making paid content available in the Operator's system intended for receiving payments
records of fulfillment of other conditions set by the Operator listed in the conditions for providing the relevant Paid Content.
