Services are made available by the Advisors through TheCircle platform: telephone consultations and chats with a per-minute tariff.
The User can contact the Advisors who carry out the services they choose on the site.
The User hereby agrees to perform the entire service through the TheCircle platform which purchases the aforementioned service from the Advisor and resells it to the User.
4.3 Performance characteristics
The User can purchase the following services on the platform:
telephone consultation and consultations via chat:
The User can launch a telephone and chat consultation or a chat from the Psychic heading with the Advisor of their choice via the platform.
By clicking on the heading “Psychic”, the User can view all the Psychic services offered by the Advisors or choose from the following sub-categories: Clairvoyance, Tarot Cards, Numerology, Horoscope, Astral Chart and Psychic.
By clicking on the Advisor of their choice, the User sees the call, the description of the Advisor, the number of consultations they have provided, their average rating and Client reviews.
For each service, the User will find the cost in pounds on the platform including VAT.
The cost includes value added tax (VAT) at the rate in force in the UK on the date of the order. Any change to the applicable rate may affect the cost of the services from the date of entry into force of the new rate.
The VAT rate is shown as a percentage of the value of the service sold.
The tariff of the Advisors on the platform can be changed. As a result, the tariffs shown on the platform may change. They may also vary in the event of special offers or sales.
The tariffs shown are valid, except in the case of an obvious error. The applicable tariff is that indicated on the platform on the date on which the order was placed by the User.
4.5 Order procedure - Consultations
The Internet user has access to Advisor profiles showing the tariff per minute for the consultation.
In order to be able to carry out a telephone and chat consultation, the Client must click on the “call” or “chat” button to be put in direct contact with the Advisor of their choosing provided they have sufficient credit in their account.
The Internet user can proceed with the purchase of the credit via a TheCircle top-up before requesting a consultation.
Depending on the TheCircle top-up purchased, the User will see the purchased amount credited to their account.
Normal top-up amounts are £35, £50, and £100
The adviqo UK Limited also reserves the right to offer the Client top-ups of different amounts and, in particular, a minimum top-up of £20 for the first purchase on TheCircle.
A surcharge of £0.30 per minute will be applied to client for each telephone consultation carried out from a mobile phone.
Calls and Chats are rounded up to the next minute.
The total available credit on the TheCircle account (net of the surcharge for mobile phone transfer) will determine the total number of minutes available to the User to consult the Advisor based on the tariff shown on the Advisor page and visible by the Client before confirming the consultation request.
The adviqo UK Limited reserves the right to offer the Internet user a pay-per-use (by the minute) payment by credit card for the exact value of the consultancy and with a maximum limit of £99.
To guarantee payment of the exact value of the consultancy, the maximum sum of £99 may be subject to a pre-authorisation on the Client's credit card.
At the end of the consultation, only the exact amount of the consultation will be charged, and the amount of any pre-authorisation will be reversed.
The release times of the sum of £99 will depend exclusively on the Client's credit card circuit once the exact value of the service has been charged.
All Clients benefit from a promotional tariff of £0.99/minute on the welcome bonus for the first free phone consultation and on the credit of their first top-up or for the first paid consultation carried out in pay-per-use in the absence of prior credit purchase by means of a top-up.
The adviqo UK Limited waives all liability for the price of the service (transaction) which is established exclusively by the Advisor.
The purchase of the Advisor's services constitutes an act concluded between the parties only, Advisor and User, with respect to which TheCircle is a third party.
The transaction between the Advisor and the User is considered concluded and finalised when the Advisor and the User establish contact via the platform and the Advisor accepts the Service request made by the User.
In fact, the User acknowledges that the Advisor is not obliged to accept all contact requests and that therefore the conclusion of the transaction, with the consequent obligation for the User to pay the cost, is subject to acceptance by of the Advisor of the request for Service made by the Internet user.
The TheCircle credit is valid for 6 months starting from the date of purchase, after which, and subject to at least 30 days' notice by email, TheCircle will consider the User to have renounced the unused sum of which the User will therefore not be reimbursed. Furthermore, if the User has never logged in in the last 6 months, the registration may be cancelled, and the account closed.
The User can leave a review on the services performed through the platform.
As part of the collection of reviews made by Consumers on the platform, TheCircle hereby undertakes to provide Users with fair, clear and transparent information on how reviews are published and processed online. In this regard, TheCircle undertakes in particular to publish the date of the review and any updates.
It should also be noted that TheCircle does not exercise any prior control over reviews.
In case of control over the reviews, TheCircle undertakes to ensure that the processing of personal data used in this context complies with the EU Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).
Only Users who have requested a service will be able to publish a review referring to the service itself.
Each consultation lasting more than three minutes for free consultation or more than nine minutes for paying consultation each gives the right to a review.
The maximum deadline for publishing a review is 30 days from the date of the service.
The review has the function of review and must concern the quality of the service received to help other Internet users of the platform in choosing their Advisor.
Any reviews that do not give an opinion on the performance, contain direct questions or requests for advice, contain private contacts or references to facts or identifiable third parties or with rude language are removed from the site.
A User who wishes to contact TheCircle regarding a review can write to the following email address: [email protected]
In the event of a relevant report, TheCircle undertakes to delete a review in the event that:
A user, who has been reported on several occasions, may have their TheCircle account closed for inappropriate reviews.

If the last day of the aforementioned deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, the deadline is deferred to the first free working day.
Within 14 days from when TheCircle is informed in writing of the User's decision to withdraw, TheCircle will refund the payments received by bank transfer, as well as cancel the User's account.
In accordance with legal provisions, the right of withdrawal is lost and is understood to be expressly waived if the User, in the time interval for exercising the withdrawal, has logged in and has used the Service.

The User can pay for services on the platform with the following payment methods:
The User must have a PayPal account and sufficient credit to pay for the service ordered
The User must have an ApplePay account and sufficient credit to pay for the service ordered

If the User decides to cancel the order for unavailable services, the refund will be made in accordance with art. 6 hereof
7.3. Payment refusal
If the bank refuses the debit operation on a card or other payment method, the User must contact TheCircle's Complaints Service in order to pay for the order using any other valid payment method accepted by the system.
In the event that, for any reason (objection, refusal, etc.), the sending of the amount due by the User proves impossible, the order will be cancelled, and the sale will be automatically terminated.
Any contract concluded with the User corresponding to an order for a sum exceeding £120 including VAT will be filed in the system for a period of 10 years.
TheCircle agrees to store such information in order to ensure the monitoring of transactions and to produce a copy of the contract upon request of the User.
In the event of a dispute, TheCircle will be able to prove the reliability of its monitoring system by guaranteeing the integrity of the transaction.
TheCircle waives all liability in the event of non- or inadequate fulfilment of the User's contractual obligations, in particular when ordering a service.

Accordingly, TheCircle waives all liability for the information published therein. Links to third party websites are provided for information only and TheCircle makes no guarantees as to their content.
TheCircle waives all liability in the event of failure or delay in the execution of one of the obligations described herein due to force majeure.
In the contractual context, force majeure is understood as a fact outside the sphere of control of the debtor, unforeseeable at the time of concluding the contract, the effects of which cannot be prevented in any way and which causes the debtor to fail to fulfil their obligations.
If the impossibility is only temporary, the debtor, as long as it lasts, is not responsible for the delay in the non-fulfilment unless the delay justifies the termination of the contract. If the impossibility is definitive, the contract is terminated, and the parties can consider themselves free from the obligations. In this regard, TheCircle waives all liability in the event of an attack by hackers, unavailability of materials, supplies, spare parts, personal equipment or otherwise, and interruption, suspension, reduction of electricity or any problem related to it, any interruption of electronic communication networks, any circumstance or fact outside TheCircle's sphere of control which arises following the conclusion of the contract and which prevents its fulfilment under normal conditions. It should also be noted that, in one of the situations described above, the User cannot claim the payment of any indemnity and cannot lodge an appeal against TheCircle. In the event of one of these events occurring, TheCircle will try to inform the User as soon as possible.
