    1. We will refund your payment or cancel your charge due to the transaction; and
    2. We will charge cancellation fees at the rate of 5% of the price of the membership or 100 NIS, whichever is lower.

    1. We will refund the consideration you paid or cancel the charge due to the transaction; and 
    2. We will charge the relative part of the consideration for your right use our services until the cancellation takes effect; and
