6. Paid Services
Certain Services from Flightradar24 are offered free of charge, currently called the "Basic Service". Other Services require payment before you can access them, "Paid Services". The Paid Services are currently referred to as the "Premium Services" . Currently, the Premium Services are divided into three categories: "Gold", "Silver" and "Business". You can learn more about the content of our Paid Services on our Website.
Please note that the Business Services are the only subscription whereby you are allowed to use the Services in relation to any commercial use or for any commercial purposes including any public display (commercial or non-commercial). Therefore, if you intend to make any commercial use of the Services, you must subscribe to our Business Services, whereby the license granted in clause 5 will, further to what is set out therein, also gives you a right to use the Service for commercial purposes. The Business Services license does however not grant you any right to resell or distribute any data received through the Service, unless otherwise explicitly agreed in writing.
Paid Services are entered into for a subscription period. The subscription period may be either for one (1) month at a time, for twelve (12) months at a time or for such period agreed upon between the Parties. All subscriptions (personal and business) are automatically extended by an additional subscription period at a time until you or Flightradar24 terminates the subscription. Please see your account page at our Website for more information about your subscription.
Flightradar24 or you may at any time terminate the subscription by providing a thirty (30) calendar days prior written notice. No subscription fee paid in advance for the relevant period will be repaid, but you will have the right to continue to use the Services until the end of that period.
If you wish to terminate your subscription, you may use your account page on our Website to do so. If we want to terminate the subscription, we will do so by email.
Certain in-app purchases can also be made in the form of a single payment for a time-unlimited access to certain Paid Services, limited to a specific version of our mobile applications. Such purchases are made from within the mobile application and follow the payment process of that mobile application. Please read more about in-app purchases in the specific license terms of that mobile application.
7. Fees and Payment
Paid Services can be purchased on the Website or through so-called in-app purchases in some of our Apps. Except in relation to certain in-app purchases, as described above, Paid Services shall be paid as a monthly or yearly subscription fee in accordance with the price list applicable from time to time which is available on the Website or in one of our mobile applications. You may effect payment of the fee through any of the means of payment offered by us on the Website or in one of our mobile applications. If any payment is not made on the due date, your Paid Service subscription will be automatically and immediately terminated.
Flightradar24 may change the prices for the Paid Services from time to time and will notify you of any such price changes by email or through information posted on our Website. Price changes to Paid Services will take effect from the next subscription period (one or twelve months, see above) following the notification of the price change. As permitted by law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Paid Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by terminating the Paid Services prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.

Data is provided for informational purposes only and is not related by any means to the safety of navigation.
Consequently, we cannot provide any type of guarantee and are neither responsible for the correctness, validity, thoroughness and accuracy of that information published, nor for the suitability of their usage for purposes other than informational only.

We cannot guarantee the security of any transfer of information made via the Services. We do not assume any liability for the information contained on the Services.
