Thirty (30) days after you receive your first Cylinder Parcel (the “Initial Cylinder Parcel”), you may request CO2 Gas refills, by placing an order for the exchange of the Initial Cylinder Parcel and any additional Cylinder Parcel delivered to you under the Plan. Cylinders can only be exchanged in parcels, equivalent to the number of Cylinders received according to the Plan. This means that if you receive four (4) Cylinders in the Cylinder Parcel, you must return four (4) Cylinders. The Initial Cylinder Parcel and any subsequent exchange Cylinder Parcel shall include a Collect + label for the return of either the Initial Cylinder Parcel or any exchange Cylinder Parcel in your possession under the Plan.

3.7. The Services shall continue for as long as you continue to pay the Fee and until terminated in accordance with these Terms. Each Subscription Period will automatically renew for additional consecutive twelve (12) month periods, until either cancelled or terminated according to these Terms (all Subscription Periods together shall be the “Term”) and we will charge your Payment Method for the renewal term in advance. Should you not wish to automatically renew after we have renewed and charged your Payment Method, you may cancel the renewal according to Section 6 below and receive a full refund.
3.8. If your Plan has concluded before the lapse of a Subscription Period, this could be where you have received all of the Cylinders due to you under your Plan, for example, if you have requested more than two (2) Cylinder exchanges in addition to the Initial Cylinder Parcel, during a twelve (12) month period, you will be required to confirm the renewal of your Plan upon placing the order for the exchange which exceeds your Cylinder allowance under the Plan and pay the Fee for the new Subscription Period. We will contact you prior to such renewal.

You will ensure that, upon their return, empty Cylinders are in substantially the same condition as when you received them and full Cylinders (if any) are in their original packaging with the original tamper proof seal intact. You shall not be entitled to exchange Cylinders found by SodaStream to be damaged or tampered with in any way and SodaStream may, at SodaStream’s discretion, charge you for such Cylinders as if they were missing Cylinders according to Section 8.9 below.

We may attempt to take payment again from your credit card under the payment authority, but no more regularly than every three (3) days until the missed payment is made, but we will not do so if you have asked us not to. In such cases we may, upon giving you reasonable notice in advance, suspend your access to the Service for a period of thirty (30) days in order to allow you to set up a valid Payment Method. This may result in a change to your payment dates. You will remain responsible for any unpaid Fees.

9.2. To protect your safety and health, the Cylinders shall be refilled and maintained solely by SodaStream and you will return empty Cylinders to SodaStream for CO2 Gas refills and maintenance purposes.
