Kugali Magazine Terms of Use

Kugali provides a magazine subscription service that provides our subscribers with a monthly magazine comprising of comic books, artwork, interviews and other relevant content (“Kugali content”).  Digital subscriptions are delivered over the internet computers and other devices (“Kugali ready devices”). Meanwhile physical subscriptions are delivered via post.

The Kugali service is provided to you by Kugali Media, a UK Partnership. These Terms of Use govern your use of our service. As used in these Terms of Use, “Kugali service”, “our service” or “the service” means the service provided by Kugali for discovering and reading Kugali content, including all features and functionalities, recommendations and reviews, the website, and user interfaces, as well as all content and software associated with our service.

  1. Membership. Your Kugali membership will continue month-to-month until terminated. To use the Kugali service you must have Internet access and a Kugali ready device, and provide a current, valid, accepted method of payment, which you may update from time to time (“Payment Method”). Unless you cancel your membership before your monthly billing date, you authorize us to charge your next month’s membership fee to your Payment Method (see “Cancellation” below). 
  2. Free Content
    • 2.1. Your Kugali membership may start with a free digital issue of the previous magazine.
    • 2.2. Free content eligibility is determined by Kugali at its sole discretion and we may limit eligibility to prevent free content abuse. We reserve the right to revoke the free content and put your account on hold in the event that we determine that you are not eligible. 
  3. Billing
    • 3.1. Billing Cycle. The membership fee for the Kugali service and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged on a monthly basis to your Payment Method on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of the paying portion of your membership. In some cases your payment date may change, for example if your Payment Method has not successfully settled or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. 
    • 3.2. Payment Methods. You can change your Payment Method by emailing us at contact@kugali.com. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not change your Payment Method or cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have obtained a valid Payment Method. When you update your Payment Method, you authorize us to continue charging the updated Payment Method, and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For some Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you certain fees, such as a foreign transaction fee or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Local tax charges may vary depending on the Payment Method used. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
    • 3.3. Cancellation. You can cancel your Kugali membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the Kugali service through the end of your monthly billing period. To the extent permitted by the applicable law, payments are non-refundable and we do not provide refunds or credits for any partial-month membership periods or unused Kugali content. To cancel, email contact@kugali.com. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. If you signed up for Kugali using your account with a third party as a Payment Method and wish to cancel your Kugali membership, you may need to do so through such third party, for example by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from the Kugali service through that third party.
