Audible India Service Conditions of Use
Last updated: 30 November 2022
By signing up for or using the Service, you acknowledge that you are 18 or over and can legally contract under the Indian Contract Act, 1872 and agree to the Terms. If you are a minor, you may use the Service only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
Your Account; Notification Preferences
If you do not have an Audible or Amazon.in account, you will need to establish an account with Amazon.in to use the Service. To manage your Audible notification preferences, please visit the Audible.in notification settings page.
As part of our Service, we may offer membership plans and may change them and their features from time to time. If you sign up for a membership plan, you agree to the terms, conditions and limitations associated with them that are posted on our websites or applications.
As part of a membership plan or a Service promotion, we may issue you credits redeemable for content on the Service ("Credits"). Credits may only be redeemed on the Service, have no cash value, are non-transferrable and non-refundable. All Credits are valid for a limited time as described in the applicable membership and promotional terms and conditions. Credits expire immediately upon the cancellation or termination of your membership unless used prior to cancellation or termination.
Once we have made purchased content available to you for download, we encourage you to download the content promptly after purchase. As a convenience to you we may continue to make your purchased content available for re-download through your Service account, but we do not guarantee that such content will be available for re-download and Audible will not be liable to you if it becomes unavailable for further re-download.
Promotional and Membership Content
We may make content available to you from time to time through the Service for which a purchase is not required including third party content. You will have access to this content only for so long as we make it available generally or, where it is provided as a benefit of a membership plan, for so long as you remain an active member of your plan in good standing. We may also remove this content from your account, devices and applications or otherwise restrict your ability to access it. We are not responsible for the content uploaded by third parties.
We may add or remove purchasable, promotional, membership and other content (collectively, "Content") from our catalog, membership plans and our Service at any time and make no guarantee as to the availability of specific Content in any membership plan or as to any minimum amount of Content in any membership plan. Some of our Content may be offered in limited territories, and we may use geofiltering technology to restrict access outside of those territories.
Fees and Renewal
Fees for purchased content, membership plans, subscriptions and other services will be stated at the time of your purchase or sign-up, as applicable, and provided in our help pages. The fees for membership plans may change at any time. Fees may be subject to tax, collected by us or a third party through which you transact, and are non-refundable except in the specific circumstances described in the Terms.
We accept a variety of payment methods depending on the type of membership plan you choose. You cannot use a credit or debit card issued outside of India to pay on Audible.in. If you sign up for an auto-renewing membership plan, your Audible membership will automatically renew at the end of each period and we or the third party through which you transact will charge you the membership fees at the time of renewal (“Recurring Payments”). By signing up for an auto-renewing plan you authorize us, or a third party through which you transact to collect the membership fee for the next membership period and agree to the Terms & Conditions for Recurring Payments.
You may disable automatic renewal of your Audible membership by contacting Audible customer support or by visiting Account Details.
Audible membership only becomes effective upon successful authorization of payment or successfully enabling Recurring Payments. If the payment methods provided by you are declined for payment of your membership or subscription fees or you do not have a valid payment method on file on your renewal date, we may at our option, limit access to non-purchased content and membership benefits and/or cancel your membership or subscription, as applicable, unless you provide us with a valid payment method. If you provide us with a valid payment method and are successfully charged before your membership or subscription is cancelled, your new membership or subscription period will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.
Membership and Subscription Cancellation
You may cancel your membership plan and any subscriptions by visiting your Account Details page provided on Audible.in (your "Account Details") and adjusting your membership settings or subscription preferences (as applicable), or by contacting our Customer Service team. If you cancel your membership or subscription, you will not receive a refund of any fees already paid. Your member benefits terminate when your membership is cancelled, but cancellation does not terminate your license and access to purchased content.
Promotional Trial Memberships
We sometimes offer certain customers various trial or other promotional memberships, which are subject to the Terms except as otherwise stated in the promotional offers. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to determine your eligibility. Trial members may, at any time (through your Account Details), choose not to continue to paid membership by cancelling prior to the end of the trial period. If a trial offer or a promotion requires you to have a valid payment instrument on file, such as a credit card or other permitted payment method, we may validate that payment method including by requesting a temporary authorization from the financial institution issuing your payment instrument. If we determine that your payment instrument is invalid, without limiting any of our other rights, we may revoke any benefits, Credits or Content you may have received as part of the offer.
