Those who wish to use the Service (hereinafter referred to as "Prospective User") may apply for the use of the Service by agreeing to comply with this agreement and providing certain information (hereinafter referred to as "Registration Information") as determined by the Group in the manner specified by the Group.
Please note that the Service is exclusively for businesses and is not intended for individual use. Individuals are requested to refrain from applying.
The application for use must be made personally by the individual or legal entity intending to use the Service, and in principle, applications made by agents will not be accepted. The Prospective User must provide true, accurate, and up-to-date information to the Group when applying for use.
The Group may refuse the use of the Service if the applicant falls under any of the following circumstances:
The Group determines that there is a risk of violating this agreement.
False, inaccurate, or incomplete information is provided in the Registration Information provided to the Group.
The applicant has previously had their use of the Service revoked.
The applicant is a minor, an adult under guardianship, a person under conservatorship, or a person under assistance, and has not obtained the consent of their legal representative, guardian, conservator, or assistant.
The Group determines that the applicant is involved in or has any form of interaction or involvement with antisocial forces (including organized crime groups, gang members, right-wing groups, antisocial forces, or similar entities).
Other cases where the Group reasonably determines that the use is not appropriate.
The Group will assess the eligibility of the Prospective User's use based on the criteria established by the Group and notify the Prospective User accordingly if their use is approved. Upon receiving such notification, the Prospective User's status as a user of the Service is established, and a contractual agreement (hereinafter referred to as "User Agreement") for the use of the Service in accordance with the provisions of this agreement between the User and the Group is formed.
If there are any changes to the Registration Information, the User must promptly notify the Group of such changes and submit the requested documents to the Group using the method specified by the Group.
Article 4 (Use of the Service and Minimum Usage Period)
During the effective period of the User Agreement, the User may use the Service in accordance with this agreement and the methods specified by the Group.
The minimum usage period shall be from 3 months to 12 months (please refer to the period stated on the website before using). It shall automatically renew on the expiration date of the User Agreement, and the same applies to subsequent renewals until termination in accordance with Article 20.
During the minimum usage period, cancellation or reduction of the Service is not permitted.
Article 5 (Fees and Payment Methods)
The User shall pay the usage fees for the Service, which are calculated based on the fee structure specified on the Group's website, using the designated credit card. The User shall bear the necessary costs for payment.
Payment for the usage fees in the initial month of application will be made within 3 days from the application date, provided that the credit card information provided in the registration details is correct. No pro-rata calculation will be performed for the initial month's payment, and the payment will be based on the fees specified on the Group's website, regardless of the number of days used. The User agrees to this arrangement.
Billing for the usage fees will occur once on the application date and subsequently on the 10th day of each month, including the application month. Therefore, in the initial month of application, there may be two billing occurrences. For example, if the application is made on the 9th, there will be an additional automatic payment on the 10th of every month. On the other hand, upon cancellation, the service will be provided until the 10th of the month following the cancellation month, so there will be no significant disadvantage to the customer (please note that there may be a difference in the number of days of service provision depending on the application date).
On the monthly payment date, payment will be processed through the payment company via the designated credit card. Regarding the initial month of application, payment will be made once within 3 days from the application date, so the above may not apply.
The monthly usage fees are handled as prepayment because they cover the assignment of our staff, server setup, and preparation of operational systems. If payment cannot be confirmed, the service provision will be interrupted, and the service will resume once payment is confirmed. However, during the period of service interruption, if restrictions on new user applications are in place to maintain a smooth operational system, economic damages may occur. In such cases, no pro-rata calculation will be performed, and the full amount will be invoiced regardless of the number of days used.
In the event of non-payment of the service usage fees, a late payment charge of 3% per annum may be imposed. Furthermore, if the payment is overdue for two or more months, the service usage will be suspended (as server management and company administration tasks are involved), and the accumulated overdue amount will be considered.
For the IG SINGLE PLAN, a 12-month contract is required (¥ 15,500 * 12 months = ¥ 186,000).
For the MEO SINGLE PLAN, a 12-month contract is required (¥ 15,500 * 12 months = ¥ 186,000).
For the DOUBLE PLAN, a 12-month contract is required (¥ 27,000 * 12 months = ¥ 324,000).
Article 6 (Refunds of Paid Usage Fees)
The refund of usage fees after payment is not accepted due to the nature of the service, and the user agrees to this.
The billing of usage fees for this service begins from the date of application and immediate payment occurs, not at the start of the service. The user agrees to this arrangement.
Due to the nature of the product, refunds, returns, and cancellations are not possible. Furthermore, as stipulated by the cooling-off system, web services are not eligible for cooling-off, and we are unable to provide any assistance in this regard. This is because the purchase of management devices, deployment of personnel, installation of servers, and provision of call centers and other support services have already been carried out at the time of application.
Article 7 (Prohibited Actions)
Users must not engage in any of the following acts when using the service:
Acts that infringe upon the intellectual property rights, portrait rights, privacy rights, reputation, or other rights or interests of the Group, other users, SNS operators, or third parties (including acts that directly or indirectly cause such infringement).

When the user downloads software or other materials from the Group's website or installs them on their computer, smartphone, or other devices during the use of this service, the user shall exercise sufficient caution to prevent the disappearance or alteration of their own information, equipment malfunctions, damages, and other similar issues.

Article 10 (Ownership of Rights)
All ownership and intellectual property rights related to the Group's website and this service belong to the Group or the licensors who have granted licenses to the Group. The license to use this service under the provisions of this agreement does not imply the transfer or granting of the Group's or the licensors' intellectual property rights related to the Group's website or this service, except as expressly stated in this agreement. The user agrees not to engage in any act that may infringe upon the intellectual property rights of the Group or the licensors, for any reason whatsoever (including but not limited to disassembling, decompiling, or reverse-engineering).
