2. Opening an Account, Registration and Payment for Premium Services
SOME SERVICES ARE FOR A FEEWe do offer some “premium” content and service features, and subscriptions for a fee. We will inform you if you are required to pay a fee for the service or feature you are interested in and if you proceed you will be obligated to pay the fees presented to you. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT ANY FEES YOU PAY ARE PAYABLE IN ADVANCE AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART. As the account holder, you are responsible for all charges incurred, including applicable taxes, and all purchases made by you or anyone that uses your account.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT THE VARIOUS SMILEBOX PRODUCTS HAVE SEPARATE PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS. FOR EXAMPLE, A SUBSCRIPTION TO CLUB SMILEBOX (THE PAID PREMIUM VERSION OF SMILEBOX FOR DESKTOP) WILL NOT GRANT YOU ACCESS TO OR ENTITLE YOU USE OF THE PAID PREMIUM ONLINE WEB-BASED VERSION OF SMILEBOX WHICH WILL NEED TO BE PAID FOR SEPARATELY.Smilebox reserves the right to change our fees or billing methods at any time and will provide notice of any such change at least thirty (30) days in advance. All changes will be posted on Smilebox and you are responsible for reviewing the billing section of Smilebox to obtain timely notice of such changes. Your continued use of the Service thirty (30) days after posting of the changes on Smilebox means that you accept such changes. If any change is unacceptable to you, you may cancel your subscription at any time, but Smilebox will not refund any fees. If your use of the services is subject to use or sales tax, then Smilebox may also charge you for any such taxes.
PAYMENT OPTIONSWe only accept payment via credit or debit card. When you provide credit or debit card information to Smilebox you represent that you are the authorized user of the card. Please note there may be a temporary charge of $0.01 to verify the card’s validity. Not to worry – this amount will be refunded as soon as the card is confirmed. Each month that you have a Smilebox account, you agree and reaffirm that Smilebox is authorized to charge your credit or debit card for the subscription fee. You agree to promptly notify Smilebox of any changes to your credit or debit card account number, its expiration date and/or your billing address, and you agree to promptly notify Smilebox if your credit or debit card expires or is cancelled for any reason.
FREE TRIALSWe may, from time to time, offer free trials. Please be aware that if you accept a free trial we will begin to bill your account for that feature or subscription when the free trial expires, unless you cancel it before that time; or if you agree to terms of any other promotion associated with it. Free trials cannot be combined with any other offer. If you have accepted a Club Smilebox free trial, you are not eligible to receive an additional free trial.
