    1. register your card details, ie the full name of the owner of the card, the card number, the expiry date (month and year) of the card, the security code (verifying the authenticity of the card) imprinted in the appropriate space of the card reserved for the signature of the holder (CVV / VISA or CVC / MC),in order to check the validity of the cards and safely carry out the transaction.

    Radiojar is under no circumstances liable in case the payment service provider fails to inform Radiojar on the successful accomplishment of the payment of the monthly subscription or due to reasons related to the Internet Service Provider. In any case if Radiojar is not informed on the approval of the payment for reasons which are not due to Radiojar, but the transaction is charged to your card, then Radiojar will assume that you have cancelled the procedure of the payment of the monthly subscription.

    If for any reason you dispute the transactions related to Radiojar services, you must notify Radiojar within 20 days.
