  2. Navigation on the platform and registration on the App

    1. It is possible to navigate on the Platform and freely enjoy the Free Services without the User having to register and create a personal account. Navigation and use of the Platform, as well as the use of the Free Services, are governed by these General Conditions limited to the provisions applicable to such activities, namely the provisions of paragraphs 3.1, 4.1, and of Articles 5, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 that follow.

To register and access their personal area within the App, the User must complete the registration form, entering the required personal data (name, surname, date of birth, email) and a password (the "Registration Credentials"). Registration is confirmed by email sent to the address provided by the User and containing the account activation link (double opt-in) that allows the first authenticated access to the App. Following the first authenticated access to the App, the onboarding phase begins in which the User is asked to provide other personal data (including fashion preferences, chromatic season, and subgroup membership; face shape - "Onboarding Data").

    3. The contract between Khooa and the User will only be concluded when the User clicks on the account activation link for the first authenticated access to the App.

    4. Registration is allowed only for adult Users and minors over 14 years of age, with prior authorization from parents/legal guardians. The use of the Paid Services is instead allowed only for

    5. The Registration Credentials may be changed by the User at any time by accessing the App and clicking on the "Settings" section.

    6. The Registration Credentials must be used exclusively by the User and cannot be transferred to third parties. The User must immediately notify Khooa at the address [email protected] in case of suspected unauthorized use of the Registration Credentials.

    7. The User is solely responsible for access to the App via the Registration Credentials and is directly liable for any damage or prejudice caused to Khooa or third parties by improper use, loss, misappropriation by third parties or failure to protect their Registration Credentials. All operations carried out through the Registration Credentials are considered to have been carried out by the User to whom the Registration Credentials refer.

    8. It is possible to make a single registration per User. Multiple registrations will be recognized by the system and will not be allowed. Khooa reserves the right not to accept any request that appears abnormal in relation to the number of Subscription Services subscribed or the frequency of registrations made on the App.

    9. The User agrees to indemnify Khooa from any compensatory obligation and/or penalty arising from and/or in any way connected to the User's violation of the rules on registration to the App and those relating to the use of the Free Services and Subscription Services.

  3. Utilization of services

    1. The User may, upon acceptance of these General Conditions, freely enjoy the Free Services accessible on the Platform.

    5. It may happen that, due to a computer, technical, system error, or any other nature, Paid Services that are no longer subscribable are available. In such a case, the system will not allow the completion of the related subscription. Should the User still manage to complete the subscription, Khooa will promptly inform the User by email and the related relationship between the User and Khooa will be deemed resolved. If payment has already been made, Khooa will refund the cost of the Paid Service subscribed according to the timing and methods provided by the payment gateway service provider that managed the related transaction.

    6. With reference to the Customer Services only, if during the execution of the assistance it should emerge that the result of the aicromia or faceshape test is wrong, Khooa will refund the cost of the Taylored service paid by the User.

If the User does not use the Paid Service within 12 months of its activation, they will not be able to benefit from it subsequently and will have no right to any refund of the Paid Amount, except in cases of non-use attributable to fraud or gross negligence of Khooa.
