- Memberships and Billing
- Pay-as-you-go membership option: when signing up you automatically join a free (default) pay-as-you-go membership. With such membership, you gain access to the Website, to view, read, listen and download the products, software and services offered and provided by the Company. With such membership, you will not be charged recurring fees and your billing information is kept on file for when you select to make a purchase from the library.
- Various monthly membership options (30-day, 90-day, 180-day or any other options the Company may offer): you gain unlimited access to view, read, listen and download the products, software and services offered and provided by the Company.
- Payment: By providing your credit card or other available payment method (“Payment Method”) information for your membership, you are agreeing to pay, in the case of the pay-as-you-go membership, the fees and any applicable taxes and service fees in connection with your use of your Account, and in the case of a monthly membership, a monthly subscription fee and any applicable taxes and service fees (collectively the “Fees”) in connection with the monthly membership option you have selected. In the case that you choose to update to a monthly membership, the Fees will be charged to your Payment Method automatically at the beginning of your subscription (or, at the end of your Trial Period, where applicable), and at the beginning of each monthly renewal thereafter on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your subscription unless you cancel your Account or your Account is suspended or terminated pursuant to these Terms. The Company reserves the right to change the pricing of the membership plans or of the pay-as-you-go fees at any time. In the event of a price change that affects you, the Company will post the new pricing on the Website and will attempt to notify you in advance by sending an email to the address you have registered for your Account. If you do not wish to accept a price change, you may cancel your Account. If there are any discrepancies in billing, you hereby waive your right to dispute such discrepancies if you do not notify the Company within 30 days after they first appear on an account statement. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL INTERNET ACCESS CHARGES. PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER FOR INFORMATION ON POSSIBLE INTERNET DATA USAGE CHARGES.
- No Refunds: ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Except as further described herein, even if you cancel your membership during a monthly subscription period, you will not receive a refund for any portion of the Fees for the remainder of that subscription period. In the following rare circumstances, we may provide a refund: you encounter technical issues that prevent you from using the Website, the products, software or services; your Account is subject to fraudulent activity by another person or entity; or you were accidentally overcharged for any fees. The amount of such refund and decision to provide a refund are at the Company’s sole discretion. The provision of a refund in one instance does not entitle you to a refund in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate the Company to provide a refund in the future, under any circumstance. Any refund claim must be made within 90 days of a contested payment. If you wish to stop using the Website, the products, software or services, you are solely responsible for cancelling your account.
- Cancellation: You can cancel your membership at any time by contacting the Company by emailing our support team at support@MediaBak.com, by telephone at (1-844-927-9164), or by logging into your Account and clicking “Cancel Your Membership” on the support page. If you cancel your membership, the cancellation will go into effect at the end of the then-current monthly subscription period. You will have continued access to your Account for the remainder of your paid monthly subscription period, but YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFUND OF ANY FEES PAID. You must cancel your subscription before it renews for the next month to avoid paying the Fees for the next month. After cancellation of your membership, you will continue to owe any accrued amounts due under these Terms and not yet paid. You acknowledge and agree that cancellation of your subscription is your sole recourse if you have any dissatisfaction, issue or concern related to the Website, its products, software or services or these Terms, including Fees, applicable taxes, or billing methods.
- Unpaid Amounts: If you fail to pay any Fees when due, as a result of expiration of your Payment Method, insufficient funds, or otherwise, (1) you will remain liable for all such amounts, as well as any costs that the Company incurs in collecting any amounts you fail to pay in connection with your Account, including attorney and collections fees; (2) you authorize the Company to continue charging your Payment Method, as your Payment Method information may be updated as described in these Terms; and (3) the Company may suspend or terminate your Account. Changing your Payment Method information may affect the day of your monthly subscription renewal.
- Trial Period: The Company may provide a limited (5 or 15 day) free trial period (“Trial Period”) to new users at its sole discretion, but is under no obligation to do so, and Trial Periods may not be available at all times. The Company reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for a Trial Period. The specific terms of the Trial Period will be stated in the marketing material describing the particular Trial Period. If the Company provides you with a Trial Period, you must provide valid Payment Method information to the Company in order to use your Account during the Trial Period. The Company will not charge you in connection with the Trial Period. If you do not cancel by the last day of your Trial Period, you authorize the Company to begin your paying subscription and automatically charge your Payment Method for your first paying monthly subscription period at the end of your Trial Period. THE COMPANY WILL NOT SEND YOU NOTICE THAT YOUR TRIAL PERIOD HAS ENDED OR THAT YOUR PAYING SUBSCRIPTION HAS BEGUN. IF YOU WISH TO AVOID CHARGES TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD, YOU MUST CANCEL THE TRIAL PERIOD PRIOR TO THE LAST “DAY” OF YOUR TRIAL PERIOD. A “day” for purposes of these Terms begins at the time you start your subscription (i.e., complete the sign-up process), and ends 24 hours later. For example, if you complete your registration at 2:00 p.m. on a Monday in your time zone, and your Trial Period is 5 days, you have until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday in your time zone to cancel your subscription before your paying subscription will begin. You may only have one Trial Period before you must begin paying for your Account. If you exceed this limit, the Company may charge your Payment Method for any Trial Period after the first, or suspend your use of your Account, in its sole discretion.
