You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your registration and login information. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details. IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, OR THE APPLICABLE AGE OF MAJORITY, YOU MAY UTILIZE THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE ONLY WITH THE INVOLVEMENT OF A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN, UNDER SUCH PERSON'S AUTHORITY, AND OTHERWISE SUBJECT TO THESE SUBSCRIPTION TERMS. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES INCURRED DURING YOUR USE OF SCREENJUNKIES PLUS AND ANY RELATED SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY CHARGES INCURRED ON YOUR ACCOUNT BY OTHER PARTIES. PLEASE NOTE THAT SUCCESSFUL REGISTRATION FOR A PAID SUBSCRIPTION TO SCREENJUNKIES PLUS IS SUBJECT TO OUR ACCEPTANCE AND CONFIRMATION TO YOU, WHICH MAY BE GIVEN OR REFUSED IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION. When you register for the Subscription Service, you will also be asked to choose a username, password or other identification information intended to restrict access to the Subscription Service and to otherwise protect your account from unauthorized access. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and other identification information. You agree not to use the account, username, password or other identification information of another person at any time or to disclose your identification information to any third party. You agree to notify DEFY immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or access to your identification information. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY AND ALL USE OF YOUR ACCOUNT. For the protection of Our subscribers, DEFY reserves the right to require or install revised account access procedures or applications at any time even though this may temporarily block access to certain parts of the Subscription Service.
Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription. All subscriptions are on a month-to-month recurring basis (except for the Annual Subscription described below), beginning on the date We confirm that We have accepted your order for ScreenJunkies PLUS and continuing for recurring one (1) month periods from the date on which you make your first payment for your subscription to ScreenJunkies PLUS unless and until you cancel your membership or We terminate it (in each case in accordance with these Subscription Terms). If you purchase a Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription, then each month of your subscription, beginning on the date on which your first payment is payable to Us, We will charge your Payment Method and you authorize Us to collect the applicable subscription payment and applicable taxes. You can cancel your Month-to-Month Subscription for a full refund of your purchase at any time during the forty-eight (48) hour period following your Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription purchase; otherwise, you must cancel your subscription before it renews for a subsequent month in order to avoid being charged for the subsequent month's subscription fees. If you cancel your Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription after such forty-eight (48) hour period, your cancellation will be effective at the end of the then-current month of the subscription term and your access to ScreenJunkies PLUS will terminate upon such date. EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT YOU CANCEL YOUR MONTH-TO-MONTH RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION WITHIN FORTY-EIGHT (48) HOURS OF YOUR INITIAL PURCHASE, IF YOU FAIL TO NOTIFY US BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT APPLICABLE MONTHLY PERIOD THAT YOU WISH TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY CONTINUE FOR SUCCESSIVE ONE (1) MONTH PERIODS UNTIL CANCELLED AND YOU AUTHORIZE US TO COLLECT THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION PAYMENT AND APPLICABLE TAXES FOR SO LONG AS YOU ARE A SUBSCRIBER.
Annual Subscription. The Annual Subscription grants you access to ScreenJunkies PLUS, beginning on the date you register for the paid subscription and ending twelve (12) months thereafter. You can cancel your Annual Subscription at any time during the ten (10) day period following your Annual Subscription purchase for a refund of your purchase, less a prorated amount for such 10 day period; otherwise, you must cancel your subscription before it renews for a subsequent Annual Subscription in order to avoid being charged for the subsequent year's subscription fees. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the Annual Subscription term for another 12 month term. You agree that we may automatically renew your subscription and charge your Payment Method on the one year anniversary of your last subscription date (the "Renewal Date") and authorize Us to collect the applicable subscription payment and applicable taxes, unless you cancel your subscription before the Renewal Date. DEFY will automatically renew your subscription each year on the Renewal Date until you cancel your subscription or DEFY no longer offers the Subscription Service. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POLICY (EXCEPT AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW) AND YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION IS A 12 MONTH FIXED TERM CONTRACT WHICH IS PAID FOR IN FULL IN ADVANCE.
Third Party Store Subscriptions. Please note that if you purchase a subscription through a third party application store (e.g., Apple, Amazon, Google, etc.) your purchase will be subject to such party's applicable payment policy, which may not provide for refunds. Please review the terms and conditions of such stores carefully before purchasing.
Discontinuation of ScreenJunkies PLUS. If We discontinue the Subscription Service, then We (i) will notify you by email, at the email address you provide to Us during registration, (ii) may provide you with information about similar or new subscription offering, and (iii) reserve the right to cancel the Subscription Service. We will give you at least one month's notice of a discontinuation of ScreenJunkies PLUS. For Month-to-Month Recurring Subscriptions, We will not take payment from you for the month in which the discontinuation is effective (or thereafter). For an Annual Subscription, you will be entitled to a partial refund in respect of the unexpired part of the relevant 12 month period following the date of discontinuation.
Free Trials. Access to ScreenJunkies PLUS may be made available to you for free for a limited time (a "Trial Subscription"). Trial Subscriptions are for new and certain former subscribers only. DEFY reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your Trial Subscription eligibility. All of the Subscription Service Terms apply to Trial Subscriptions and such Trial Subscription does not decrease the minimum subscription commitments of a paid subscription (accordingly, by way of example, if your Trial Subscription is for fourteen (14) days and upon expiration of that period it then, in accordance with the relevant promotion (and these Subscription Terms), converts to a paid Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription, your minimum paid subscription period would be one month from the date on which your paid subscription started (and not one month from the date on which your Trial Subscription started)). If you register for a Trial Subscription, please carefully review the conditions of the Trial Subscription. In some cases, users agree to subscribe to ScreenJunkies PLUS on a paid basis at the end of their Trial Subscription, unless they cancel the Subscription Service before the Trial Subscription ends. If We ask for your Payment Method for a Trial Subscription and you do not affirmatively cancel the Subscription Service before your Trial Subscription ends, then your Payment Method will be processed and your subscription will be converted into a Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription, subject to all Subscription Terms, including any automatic renewal and/or recurring subscription terms detailed above. Your Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription will be treated as starting on the date on which your Trial Subscription was converted to a Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription. It is very important to understand that you will not receive a notice from Us that your Trial Subscription has ended or that your Month-to-Month Recurring Subscription has begun. IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION CONVERTED INTO A MONTH-TO-MONTH RECURRING SUBSCRIPTION, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR SERVICE BEFORE THE END OF YOUR TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION BY: (I) FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS UNDER "CANCEL MEMBERSHIP" ON THE "YOUR ACCOUNT" PAGE; TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION: (I) GO TO THE "YOUR ACCOUNT" PAGE ON THE SITE AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANCELLATION; (II) USE THE CANCELLATION FORM (WHICH CAN BE FOUND HERE); OR (III) CONTACT US AT SUPPORT@SCREENJUNKIES.COM. YOUR ACCESS TO SCREENJUNKIES PLUS WILL TERMINATE IMMEDIATELY upon cancellation IF YOU CANCEL YOUR TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION.
Promotional Code/Gift Subscriptions. We may offer promotional codes and/or gift subscriptions to the Subscription Service for certain time periods. If you are accessing the Subscription Service using one of these codes and/or gift subscriptions, any separate set of terms and conditions presented to you along with these codes and/or gift subscriptions may apply in addition to these Subscription Terms.
Bonus/Special Offers. At any time, and for any reason, We may provide a special offer, refund, discount, bonus, gift, or other consideration to some or all of ScreenJunkies PLUS current or prospective subscribers ("Bonuses"). The amount and form of such Bonuses (if any), and the decision if and in which particular territories to provide them, are at Our sole and absolute discretion. Any Bonuses which may have been offered to you, either on a standalone basis or as part of a paid subscription, are non-refundable in the event of any discontinuation of the Subscription Service. Please note that, notwithstanding anything contained herein, certain rates or special offers may not be eligible for cancellation. THE PROVISION OF BONUSES IN ONE INSTANCE IN NO MANNER SHOULD BE DEEMED TO ENTITLE YOU TO BONUSES IN THE FUTURE FOR ANY SIMILAR INSTANCES, NOR DOES IT OBLIGATE DEFY PROVIDING BONUSES IN THE FUTURE, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.
Sales/Use Taxes. DEFY may be required to collect sales or use tax for certain purchases, including for the purchase of ScreenJunkies PLUS subscriptions. In states or regions that impose a sales or use tax, certain purchases might be subject to tax even if DEFY is not required to collect sales or use tax by any particular state or region. A purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog, or by other remote means. Whether sales or use tax will be collected on a given purchase and the amount of the tax charged depends on a number of factors including whether the seller is subject to a tax collection obligation in that state or region. The purchaser may be responsible for any taxes not collected by DEFY. Certain states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return annually reporting taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay such tax. For details, We strongly encourage you to review the applicable regulations of the applicable taxing authority. If DEFY collects sales or use tax in connection with a purchase, the amount of the tax will either be shown prior to completion of the purchase or reflected in the final confirmation of that purchase.
Cancellation/Refund Policy. You may only cancel your subscription to ScreenJunkies PLUS in accordance with these Subscription Terms. To cancel your subscription: (i) go to the "Your Account" page on the Site and follow the instructions for cancellation; (ii) use the cancellation form (which can be found here); or (iii) contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you cancel your membership, your access to the Subscription Service will end as of the effective date of cancellation as set forth in these Subscription Terms.
