Sportmonks’ Terms of Service

Sportmonks provides affordable real-time sports data for an affordable price.

Below you can find Sportmonks’ Terms of Service.

Free trial period

When you subscribe to a plan with a 14-day free trial period, you must provide Sportmonks with a valid credit card account.

To avoid being billed, you must manually cancel your subscription within the 14-day trial period. Failure to do so will result in your credit card being billed on the first day after your free trial period expires.

The free trial period is only available for first-time users of Sportmonks’ services. Each Sportmonks account is eligible for one 14-day free trial period. Switching plans does not make you eligible for another free trial period.

We kindly ask you to refrain from creating multiple accounts to abuse the 14-day free trial offer. Sportmonks.com is allowed and will take action against this kind of behaviour.

Cancellation

You can cancel your subscription at any given time. If you choose to cancel your subscription, our system will not charge you for the next billing cycle. You will always be charged monthly for our plans.

Cancellation of subscriptions will be effective for the following month.

Subscription fees

Subscription fees are paid upfront monthly and are automatically renewed. If you choose to cancel your subscription after the payment has gone through, you will not be eligible for a refund.

By subscribing to our services, you permit Sportmonks.com to process your credit card monthly, corresponding to the date you subscribed or the date your trial period ended.

Disputes

By subscribing to our paid data services, you are agreeing to comply with the terms outlined in our Terms of Service. Initiating unwarranted payment disputes not only violates these terms but also disrupts our ability to provide uninterrupted service (access to our data) to you as a customer. We understand that there may be instances where disputes are necessary due to billing errors or unauthorised charges. In such cases, we encourage you to reach out to our customer support team for prompt resolution at [email protected].

Subscription change – new invoice

It is important to note that for every subscription change, a new invoice for the new subscription will be generated and must be paid for immediate access to the new subscription. Rest assured, our payment system takes into account the duration of unused time from your previous invoice. This amount will then be deducted from the new invoice that was generated for your new subscription and billing cycle.

VAT

All prices are exclusive of VAT as per our local policy. The VAT amount is determined based on the country; our billing system automatically calculates this. Where applicable, VAT will be applied at the standard rate. If you have a valid VAT number, you can use this to exempt taxation charges.

Currency

All payments are processed in Euros (€). If you prefer to pay in any other currency, please note that our billing system will automatically convert the amount to Euros at the current exchange rate. As the exchange rate fluctuates based on the market, please be aware that we cannot be held responsible for any potential losses incurred.

Logo/image rights

All logos and profile photos are copyrighted by their legal owner. To display these types of content in your app or website, you have to arrange proof of intellectual property yourself.

Regarding the use of logos and photos from the Sportmonks API, “proof of intellectual property” typically refers to demonstrating that you have the legal right or permission to use the copyrighted content in your application.

Here are some general steps that are commonly taken by developers to arrange proof of intellectual property:

Permissions from Legal Owners:
Obtain explicit permission from the legal owners to use the logos and profile photos in your app. This could involve reaching out to the respective sports teams, leagues, or organizations and securing written consent.

Alternatively, if you are unable to obtain permission from the legal owners, you can create a variation of the logos to use in your app.

License Agreements:
Check if the legal owners provide specific licensing agreements for the use of their intellectual property. Some organizations may offer guidelines or terms for the use of their logos and photos.

Fair Use Consideration:
Evaluate whether the use of logos and photos falls under the concept of “fair use.” Fair use allows for the use of copyrighted material for purposes such as commentary, criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research. However, it’s essential to assess whether your specific use case qualifies as fair use.

Attribution:
Clearly attribute the logos and photos to their respective owners. Include appropriate credits or acknowledgements within your app to recognize the intellectual property rights of the content owners.

Legal Consultation:
If in doubt, seek legal advice from a professional attorney who specializes in intellectual property law. They can provide guidance tailored to your specific situation and help ensure compliance with copyright laws.It’s important to note that these general suggestions may vary based on the specific content and the legal frameworks in different jurisdictions. It’s recommended to consult with legal professionals or representatives from the organizations whose logos and photos you plan to use to ensure full compliance with copyright laws.

Video rights

Video highlights are embedded into URLs on video platforms like YouTube. Use at your own risk.

Availability of odds

We cannot guarantee odds to be available at all times, even though we strive to present odds for every game that we host.
