Some of our services are available via subscription plans, paid on a monthly or yearly basis, or unlocked via special promotions. Those subscriptions plans might change or be cancelled at any time.
Updates to Subscription Plans
Planned changes to subscription plans will be communicated to subscribers with at least 30 days in advance. Changes that benefit the user experience might not be communicated beforehand, although we usually do it. Cancellation of existing subscription plans due to legal reasons or external dependencies, such as the Strava API, are not guaranteed to be communicated beforehand.
Payments are currently handled by a third party service, PayPal. We do not collect, process or store any card or bank details whatsoever.
Subscriptions paid in form of a Sponsorship via GitHub are handled entirely by GitHub.
We do not offer refunds by default. On exceptional cases, we might offer a partial or full refund on your last subscription payment, in case we find that it's justifiable.
The PRO account, available as a subscription plan or as part of a promotion, unlocks extra features compared to the free account. Those features might be enabled or disabled as we wish, according to usage and third party dependencies. Below you'll find a comparison between PRO and Free:
