Kompanion is an all-around healthy living ecosystem. For every goal you set for yourself, we are with you, on different platforms, in different places and in different forms. For us, being Kompanion means more than just being together. It’s about sharing the same mindset and passion and being fed by the same motivation. So, whether you are a challenger who’s always about to roar or a calm mind who just wants to keep things balanced, we feel you. We aren’t here to tell you what to do or not do. We believe that feeling good is not the destination but the journey itself. We are here to walk this road with you and assist you whenever you need.

We provide our Services through the Free Membership and Premium Membership options explained below.
Free Membership: Our Free Membership option does not require you to make any payment but provides access to limited content and/or features only (“Free Services”). You may access our Services which do not require payment through “Free Membership”. We may suspend, change, limit, or terminate the Free Membership for any reason at any time and without any notice.
Premium Membership: Premium Membership allows greater access to the selected Services, hence providing additional content, features and/or functions not provided through Free Services (“Paid Services”). You may access our Paid Services through a “Paid Subscription” and become a “Premium Member” for a specified period or for recurring periods for a fee. Depending on the conditions applicable to your purchase, your Paid Subscription may allow access to Paid Services available on all or individual Kompanion Apps. For the sake of clarity, a Premium Membership does not necessarily entitle You to full access to all Services unless otherwise explicitly specified during your purchase. You may purchase Premium Membership directly from us or through a third party. If you purchase Premium Membership through a third party, the additional terms and conditions of such a third party will apply. Paid Membership can be purchased either by paying a subscription fee in advance at a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual or any other recurring interval (“Recurring Subscription Fee”) or by purchasing a code, gift card, pre-paid offer or other offer provided or sold by us or on behalf of us (“Code”) for access to Paid Services for a specific time period (“Pre-Paid Fee”).
Additional terms and conditions will apply when a Premium Membership is purchased, or a Trial is commenced through a Code. In such a case, you agree to comply with such terms and conditions, in addition to this T&C.
We reserve the right to change our pricing terms for our Paid Memberships at any time. In that case, you will be notified when the price of a Paid Membership increases. If required, we will seek your consent to continue with the increased price. In any case, the price change will take effect at the start of the subscription period which follows the date of the price change. If you do not agree with the price change, you may always reject the price change by unsubscribing from the Paid Membership within the subscription period.
Automatically Recurring Subscriptions and How to Cancel Them:
Should you use our Paid Services through the payment of a Recurring Subscription Fee, the payment will be renewed automatically at the end of the then-current subscription period. If you would like to cancel your Paid Subscription and you have made the purchase directly from us, and not through any third party, such as the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, you must send your request to [email protected]
before the end of the subscription period to avoid paying any Recurring Subscription Fee for the recurring period. If you have made the purchase through a third party, such as Apple App Store or Google Play Store, you must cancel directly with that third party.
To avoid any discrepancies, the cancellation will take effect for the recurring period, not the then-current period, and you will not be refunded for the then-current subscription period within which you have cancelled your Paid Subscription but will continue to receive the Paid Services ordered until the end of your current subscription period.
WE MUST REMIND YOU THAT IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED YOUR PAID SUBSCRIPTION THROUGH A THIRD PARTY, YOU MUST CANCEL DIRECTLY WITH THAT THIRD PARTY, SUCH AS GOOGLE PLAY STORE OR APPLE APP STORE.
You may be offered a trial of Premium Membership (“Trial”) for a specific period (“Trial Period”). We make no representation or warranties that you will be offered any Trials or that all features and content offered through Premium Subscriptions will be offered with any Trials.
We or our affiliates may sometimes ask or require you to provide your payment details in order to be eligible for any Trials. BY PROVIDING YOUR PAYMENT DETAILS YOU AGREE AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE SPECIFIED SUBSCRIPTION FEE UNLESS YOU CANCEL THE APPLICABLE PAID SUBSCRIPTION WITHIN THE TRIAL PERIOD.
If you activated your Trial Period directly through our Website, you must send your cancellation request to [email protected]
before the end of the Trial Period to avoid paying any Subscription Fees. If you activated your Trial Period through the Application, you actually received your Trial through a third-party, such as Google Play Store or Apple App Store. In that case, you must cancel the applicable paid subscription through the third party, in line with the cancellation and refund policies of such a third party.
Right of Withdrawal and Refunds
Our Services are deemed as “services immediately performed on an electronic platform”, which do not grant the right to withdraw, and therefore no refunds are possible, in accordance with Article 15 of the Turkish Regulation on Distance Contracts, published in the Official Gazette dated 27 November 2014 and numbered 29188. You should also be aware that the general terms and conditions of the Apple App Store or Google Play Store will be applied to the right of withdrawal from the in-application purchases conducted accordingly.
If you have conducted a purchase through Apple App Store, you can only request a refund from Apple. Apple acts as the distributor and handles refund requests for all purchases conducted through the Apple App Store. It is not therefore possible for us to process any refund requests for purchases made through Apple. For more information on Apple’s refund process, please refer to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204084
Similar to Apple, Google has its own refund policy. In certain circumstances, you may be eligible to request a refund directly from Google, if you have conducted a purchase through Google Play Store. If your refund request is rejected by Google, Google may suggest you contact us. Please be aware that, if Google has rejected your refund request, we are also unable to refund you. For more information on Google’s refund process, please refer to https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/2479637?hl=en
Without making any guarantees, we strongly believe that our Services will provide you with significant benefits. Therefore, we are pleased to inform you that we offer complimentary refund opportunities in certain conditions.
You may request a complimentary refund within 30 days of your purchase, provided that you have conducted a purchase through our Website. Please remember that we can only review refund requests for purchases conducted through our Website. As explained under Articles 6.2 and 6.3 above, if you have conducted a purchase through Apple App Store or Google Play Store, you can only request a refund from Apple or Google, respectively.
We do not guarantee acceptance of your refund requests. Although we care about the happiness of all our Members, we need to be convinced that you have given our Services enough of a chance. To do that, we review refund requests on the basis of certain criteria, such as the time spent on the relevant Kompanion App or the Website, the features accessed, and the exercises completed. We will review those criteria at our sole discretion.
The refund request must be made to the email address [email protected]
. Although we cannot guarantee to process your request within a specified period, we will do our best to finalize it as soon as we can.
During the process, we might need to request additional information from you, such as your feedback on the Kompanion Apps, the grounds for your dissatisfaction, the date and time of your purchase, and your payment information. You agree to provide us with the requested information accurately and in full, and not to hold us responsible if your refund request cannot be completed or completed with delay due to the incorrect, false, or incomplete information we have obtained from you.
We may decide to forfeit, suspend, or terminate the above-described complementary refund opportunity at any time.
Please remember that banking costs and fees may arise from the refund process, for which you agree not to hold us responsible.
We do not process payments, but instead use a third-party payment processor. The purchases made through us for any Paid Services are billed through a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”). Therefore, we do not store any payment information. However, we may access and store your payment information only to the extent it is necessary to confirm or refund your payments, related actions, or for legal reasons, such as the last four digits of your credit card. The terms, conditions and other policies, such as privacy policies, of the Payment Processors will apply to the processing of such payments in addition to these Terms. We will not be liable for any damages caused by any Payment Processors. By choosing to use Paid Services, you agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at prices in effect on the date of purchase and/or on dates the subscription renews automatically, for any use of such Paid Services in accordance with the applicable payment terms, and authorize us, through the Payment Processor, to charge your chosen payment provider (“Payment Method”).
InIn addition to providing us with up-to-date, complete, and accurate information for the billing (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date) you must promptly notify us or our Payment Processor if your Payment Method is cancelled (e.g., for loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your email, username or password.
Your bank, credit or debit card company may incur additional charges for which you agree not to hold us responsible. These will include, without limitation, banking costs, banking charges or charges which may occur due to currency conversions.
