To whom did you pay €15 to?

OpenStreetMap data is free for everyone to use (although some third-party apps or services that use OSM data may charge for their services).

Maybe the OSM Foundation?

OpenStreetMap data is free, so you most likely didn't pay OpenStreetMap (specifically the OpenStreetMap Foundation backing the project)

But services may be sold which use OpenStreetMap data. So unless you specify what you paid for, we can't help you.

Just for clarity: There is a membership with the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF), but that is 15£, not 15€. See https://join.osmfoundation.org You don't get any login with an OSMF membership. As a member you get to vote in the annual general meeting, but that is sent by e-mail.
