1.2 The eyeson room is the core application of the eyeson service. A user account created by the user on eyeson sites (hereinafter referred to as “user account”) or an authenticated user created on eyeson via onboarding from other eyeson room integrated 3rd party ecosystems represents the identity of the user within the eyeson services, on eyeson sites, and in the service’s applications. In order to use eyeson, the user requires either a user account or an authenticated user created by onboarding on the eyeson services. There may, in addition, be certain applications of the eyeson services where the user does not appear and is not displayed with the user account. Registration or user authentication with the eyeson services is, however, always required to start an eyeson service. GUEST features may allow participation for some specific eyeson services without authentication, but never allow starting of an eyeson service.
eyeson will provide its products and services in accordance with the Terms. In order to use certain products and services user may be required to download content, software, and/or required to agree to additional terms and conditions. Unless otherwise expressly set forth in any such additional terms and conditions applicable to the specific products and services which user chooses to use, those additional terms are hereby incorporated into these Terms in relation to the use of that product and/or service. eyeson may at its sole discretion, discontinue products and services or modify the features of the products and services from time to time. Use of the products and services requires one or more compatible devices, Internet access (fees may apply), and certain software (fees may apply), and may require obtaining updates or upgrades from time to time. Because use of the products and services involves hardware, software, and Internet access, user’s ability to use such products and services may be affected by the performance of these factors. High-speed Internet access is recommended. User acknowledges and agrees that such system requirements, which may be changed from time to time, are his individual responsibility.

Free membership and Premium membership will hereinafter be collectively referred to as “eyeson membership”.
1.5 If eyeson offers the user the option to book one or more free or paid third-party supplementary services, the user shall enter into separate agreements with the respective third party that have no legal connection to the user’s eyeson membership.
