- REGISTRATION PROCESS
- Access to the Services and registration for an Account is only permitted to individuals age eighteen and older who are working on behalf of a third-party entity seeking to buy or sell goods or services by way of the Services (a “Designated Company”). By accessing the Services and registering for an Account you affirm that you meet these eligibility criteria. In the event that You discontinue working for a Designated Company, You must contact Koble Support at email@example.com and immediately discontinue use of the Services.
- During the registration process, You are required to submit a user name, password, verifying email address at the domain of the Designated Company, and other information in accord with the prompts comprising such process.
- Koble charges a fee for some of the Services (the “Paid Services“), as indicated at the time of registration.

All credit card information and transactions are handled by third-party partners and Koble will not maintain any record of credit card account numbers or other information. All currency pricing on the Koble Service will be in USD (United States Dollars).
- Initial payment for all Paid Services will be due and deemed earned upon Account registration, and thereafter each month on the anniversary date of Account creation. In the event the anniversary date of account creation falls on the 29th, 30th, or 31st, and there is no such day in the relevant calendar month, then payment for Paid Services for that period will be due and deemed earned on the first day of the following month. If you have provided Koble with credit card information upon registration, you specifically authorize Koble to charge that credit card in the amount of the Paid Services on the anniversary date of account creation or the first of the following month, as applicable, each month until such time as that authorization is revoked in writing or Paid Services are cancelled. Koble may offer discounts for yearly subscriptions.
