3. The Little Stu Services offered

3.1 ​​Options on the Little Stu Services

We offer a variety of options on the Little Stu Services. Certain options on the Little Services are offered free of charge, while other options require payment before they can be used (the “Paid Subscriptions”). We may also offer special promotions, memberships or Little Stu Services, including offers of third party products and services.

3.2 Trial Subscriptions

From time to time, we or third parties acting on our behalf may offer paid subscriptions free of charge or at a reduced price for a specific period of time on a trial basis (“Trial Subscription”). If you use the Little Stu Services via a Trial Subscription, you must agree to the additional terms and conditions for Little Stu Premium promotional offers.

3.3 Third Party Applications and Devices

The Little Stu Services may be integrated with or may interact with third party applications, websites and services (“Third Party Applications”) and third party devices (such as personal computers, mobile phones, tablets, wearable devices, speakers or other third party devices) to provide the Little Stu Services to you. These Third Party Applications and Devices may have their own terms and privacy policies, which will govern your use of such Third Party Applications and Devices. Little Stu does not guarantee the compatibility or continued compatibility of the Third Party Applications and Devices with the Little Stu Services.

4. Paid subscriptions, price changes, right of withdrawal, billing and termination of paid subscriptions

4.1 Paid Subscriptions

You may purchase a Paid Subscription directly from Little Stu or through a third party (1) by paying a subscription fee in advance on a monthly basis or during such other period as we will notify you of prior to your purchase, or (2) by making an upfront payment that will give you access to the Little Stu Services for a specific period of time (“Prepaid Period”). If you purchase a Paid Subscription through a third party, separate terms with the third party may apply to your use of the Little Stu Services in addition to this Agreement. If you purchase a Paid Subscription using a code, gift card, prepaid offer or other offer provided or sold by or on behalf of Little Stu for access to a Paid Subscription (“Codes”), you must agree to the Little Stu Card Terms of Use.

If you sign up for a Paid Subscription with a Trial Subscription, you may change your mind and cancel the Paid Subscription before it begins within the term of the Trial Subscription from the day you sign up for the relevant Little Stu Service (“Cooling-off Period”) without giving any reason, subject to the following provisions (in which case no fees will be charged for the Paid Subscription so cancelled):

If you sign up for a Trial Subscription, you agree that the Cooling-off Period for the Paid Subscription for which you are receiving a Trial Subscription will end when your Trial Subscription expires. In this case, the Paid Subscription will begin when the Trial Subscription expires. If you do not cancel the Paid Subscription before the end of the Trial Subscription, you lose this early termination right and give Little Stu permission to charge you the agreed fee on a monthly basis until you cancel the Paid Subscription. Your other statutory or contractual termination rights under these General Terms and Conditions remain unaffected.

4.2 Price changes

Little Stu may, at its reasonable discretion, change subscription fees and other prices to offset the increased overall costs of providing the Little Stu services. The calculation of the total costs is based on, for example, the cost of content (production and licensing costs), administration costs, the cost of maintaining and operating our IT infrastructure, general overheads (sales and marketing costs, personnel costs, rent, external service providers), as well as financing costs, taxes, fees and other charges. In the event of a change in the statutory sales tax, Little Stu is entitled to adjust the subscription fees accordingly.

Little Stu may consider increasing prices if, for example, the cost of content, the cost of Little Stu’s IT infrastructure and general overheads increase, resulting in an increase in the overall cost of providing the Little Stu services.

All price changes will take effect at the earliest 30 days after Little Stu has notified you, at the start of the next billing period for your subscription. Your right of ordinary termination in accordance with Section 12 remains unaffected.

4.3 Right of withdrawal

Unless you have effectively waived your right of withdrawal, if you are resident in Germany, you have a statutory right of withdrawal as follows:


Right of withdrawal

To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must inform us (Little Stu, C/O: Vinplus UG, Mainstr. 3, 63450 Hanau, Germany, email: info@littlestu.com) of your decision to withdraw from this contract by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post, fax or email). You can use the attached model withdrawal form for this purpose, but this is not mandatory. You can also electronically fill out and submit the model withdrawal form or another clear statement on our website. If you make use of this option, we will immediately send you (e.g. by email) a confirmation of receipt of such a withdrawal.

To meet the withdrawal period, it is sufficient that you send the notification of the exercise of the right of withdrawal before the expiry of the withdrawal period.

Consequences of cancellation

If you cancel this contract, we will refund all payments that we have received from you, including delivery costs (with the exception of additional costs resulting from your choice of a different type of delivery than the cheapest standard delivery offered by us), promptly and at the latest within fourteen days from the day on which we received notification of your cancellation of this contract. For this refund, we will use the same means of payment that you used for the original transaction, unless something else was expressly agreed with you; under no circumstances will you be charged any fees for this refund.
