3.5. Registration and creation of an Account involve filling in the form fields displayed on the screen with data, including the e-mail address, which will be the User’s login, as well as the password.

3.9. The User may request the deletion of the Account at any time. However, if the User uses Products for which – according to the terms and conditions – it is necessary to have an Account, deleting the Account will prevent the User from continuing to use the given Products. PTWP reserves the right to delete the Account if the User violates the Terms and Conditions or has not used the Account or Products purchased through it for 5 years.

4. Ordering and purchasing the Product

4.1. Ordering the Products involves several consecutive steps: the selection of the Product by the User, registration of the User Account or logging into the Account, selection of the payment method, making payment through the selected electronic payment operator. The User also accepts the Terms and Conditions by proceeding to the next steps.

4.2. When placing an order, the User selects the Product by clicking the “Order”/”Register” button with the appropriate icon. For paid Products, after completing the order, the User, seeing the summary of the order, the selected Products and their total price that the User will be obliged to pay for the Products, selects a button allowing them to continue the order (e.g. “Order”/”Next”).

4.3. Placing an order by the User as above constitutes submitting PTWP an offer to purchase a given Product. After placing an order as above, PTWP sends information about placing the order to the User’s e-mail address; for paid Products – with a request to confirm its placement and choose the payment method. Then, information about acceptance of the order for processing is sent to the User’s e-mail address, which constitutes a declaration of acceptance of the offer by PTWP and as soon as the User receives it, an agreement is concluded on the terms and conditions resulting from the order, these Terms and Conditions and special conditions for a given Product.

4.4. Access to ordered and paid Products is available after logging into the Account on the PTWP Website.

4.5. Payments for the ordered Products may be made using the methods specified on the PTWP Website, in particular using a payment card and on-line transfers.

The User does not bear additional costs related to the use of the selected payment method.

4.6. If paying by credit card or on-line transfer, the User may receive a VAT invoice without a signature required in the form of a PDF file sent to the e-mail address provided. In order to receive a paper invoice, the User shall contact the accounting department of PTWP.

5.3. In order to access on-line debates/webinars, it is necessary to have and log in to a User Account.

5.4. Unless otherwise stated in the terms and conditions of an order for a given Product, the use of this Product will also be subject to the payment of a certain fee in advance. The fee is due for the entire period ordered, regardless of whether and to what extent the User will use the access to broadcast and retransmission.

5.5. A Product in the form of a on-line debate/webinar consists of a reservation of the access/access package (e.g. Premium, VIP) provided by PTWP from the day of ordering the Product until the day of the on-line debate/webinar and the access to live on-line debate/webinar transmission. Therefore, in case of purchasing such a Product, it is assumed that this service is provided at the moment of accepting the User’s offer (information about accepting the order for processing). As of that moment, PTWP may not offer a given place or package to another person, i.e. cancel the User’s reservation for the benefit of another person. This does not apply, if PTWP is authorised to terminate the agreement with a given User, e.g. if the fee is not paid on time.

5.6. A Product in the form of an on-line debate/webinar may also consist of the following services:

a. sending notifications about starting live broadcasts;
b. enabling access to the communicator during the live broadcast (possibility for the User to send and receive messages in real-time during the on-line debate/webinar);

5.7. If the access to the transmission is free of charge, special packages/access statuses (e.g. Premium, VIP) can be purchased on the PTWP Website. Purchase of such packages on the PTWP Website requires having an Account and registering in accordance with the terms and conditions of a given transmission. The User will be informed about the free access and/or the possibility of purchasing special packages by e-mail to the address provided by the User when creating an Account. If the User is informed about the possibility of purchasing a special package, a link to the order will also be sent via e-mail.

5.8. PTWP reserves the right to refuse to process the order, in particular when it is impossible to create an Account or when the limit of access, packages or statuses provided for a given transmission are exhausted.

5.9. PTWP reserves the right to set additional conditions concerning access to live broadcast/retransmission.

5.10. The User may resign from purchasing the Product only in exceptional and random cases, with the reservation that in such cases the User is not entitled to a refund of fees paid for the Product, unless PTWP has not yet incurred any costs related to organising a given transmission. However, with the consent of PTWP, the User may transfer the rights and obligations resulting from the purchase of such Product to another person. In such case, the fees paid shall be refunded as soon as the payment is made by the other person.

5.11. Debates/webinars on the Website may be recorded photographically, by means of audio/video devices, including radio, television or other means of communication to the public in such a way that everyone may have access to them at a place and time of their choice. Active participation, including as a guest, in live debates/webinars, is open and therefore the profile or image of the Participant, taken individually or as part of a larger whole, may be documented in the form of photography, sound or video, and materials obtained in this way may be disseminated by PTWP and representatives of the press for information and promotional purposes related to the activities of PTWP, sponsors and partners of PTWP (including through websites, e-mail, social media and in the printed press).

5.12. PTWP agrees that a Participant taking an active part in an on-line debate/webinar accepts the possibility of the above-mentioned recording and using their profile or image as a participant in the debate/webinar. If for any reason a Participant does not accept a specific use of their image, they shall notify PTWP, which is then obliged to immediately cease such use or to base the use on a legal basis other than consent.

If, in connection with the registration, participation in on-line debates and webinars, a Participant provides PTWP with any materials, e.g. biographies, photographs, graphics or recordings, in order to use them or make them available in connection with given participation, such provision will constitute an authorisation – of PTWP and its sponsors and partners - to use them in accordance with the agreed purpose, including in retransmissions on the Website. The Participant guarantees that the use of these materials will not violate any rights of third parties.
