Using Mixbook

This policy is effective May 21, 2010.

Introduction

Welcome to Mixbook (the "Web site"), an online, collaborative web site and publishing service that connects people to create books together that can be printed or shared online.  The Web site, service and network (collectively, the “Service”) are operated by Interactive Memories, Inc. and its corporate affiliates (collectively, “us”, “we” or “Mixbook”). By accessing or using our Website at www.mixbook.com, you (the “User”) agree that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use (“Terms of Use” or “Agreement”), whether or not you are a registered member ("Member") of the Service. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of these Terms of Use at any time without notice. If we do this, we will post the changes to these Terms of Use on this web page and will indicate at the top of the Terms of Use the date they were last revised. Any new Terms of Use are effective upon posting and your continued use of the Service after such posting constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use. If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Terms of Use, do not use or access (or continue to use or access) the Service. It is your responsibility to regularly review the Terms of Use to determine if there have been changes.

Please read these Terms of Use carefully as they contain important information regarding your legal rights, remedies and obligations.

Eligibility

By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you are thirteen (13) years old or older.  You must be thirteen (13) years of age or older to register as a member of the Service or access or use the Service. If you are under the age of 13, you must use an account created by a parent, guardian or teacher, and you must have the explicit permission of a parent or guardian to use the Service. Membership in and access to the Service is void where prohibited.

Term

This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services or are a Member.  You may delete your account and end your membership at any time, for any reason by following the instructions on the My Account page.  Mixbook may terminate your membership for any reason, at any time.  Even after termination, your obligations under this Agreement will remain in effect.  You understand that termination of this Agreement and your account may involve deletion of your Mixbook information from our live databases as well as any Member Content that you have uploaded to the Service or created on the Service using your account.  You agree that Mixbook will not have liability whatsoever to you for any termination of your account or related deletion of your information or Member Content.

Fees

You acknowledge that Mixbook reserves the right to charge for Services and to change our fees from time to time in its discretion, upon posting such policy on the Service.  Thereafter, upon using our Services, you will be responsible for the payment of any applicable fees as set forth on the Service.

Conditions of Sale

Eligibility and Credit Card Terms

To order any books or other products, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or the applicable age of majority in your jurisdiction. You will be required to give us a valid credit card number (VISA, MasterCard, American Express or any other issuer then accepted by us) and associated payment information at the time you order books or any other products hereunder, including all of the following:

  • Your name as it appears on the card
  • The credit card type
  • The date of expiration of your credit card
  • Billing address
  • Any activation numbers or codes needed to charge your credit card.

Mixbook does not accept cash, checks or any other payment form, although it reserves the right to change this policy in the future.  Your credit card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that no additional notice or consent is required before Mixbook invoices the credit card for all amounts due and payable. By providing Mixbook with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Mixbook is authorized to immediately invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to Mixbook as a result of your purchase of any books or other products. You agree to immediately notify Mixbook of any change in the credit card used for payment hereunder or in any associated information. Mixbook reserves the right, at any time, to change its prices and billing methods for books and other products sold, either immediately upon posting on the Service or by e-mail delivery to you.

Mixbook Credit

Any credit issued to you by Mixbook has no cash value and is not exchangeable as cash. Mixbook credit may be redeemed towards future purchases using your Mixbook account, and your Mixbook credit will be automatically applied in the checkout process. You can view your Mixbook credit under your My Account section. Mixbook credit is valid for 1 year from the date of last purchase, or if the user has not purchased, from the date of registration as a Mixbook user. If your Mixbook credit expires, it will be removed from your Mixbook account.

Fees and Charges

You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your orders and purchases (including any taxes imposed on your orders and purchases, including, but not limited to, applicable shipping fees, sales, use or value-added taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Fees charged for goods and services may change at any time without advanced notice. Mixbook may automatically charge and withhold such fees and charges for orders to be delivered to addresses within any jurisdictions that it deems is required. When you order books or other products for overseas delivery, shipments may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the package with the books or products arrives at the destination that you specified.  Any charges for customs clearance shall be borne by you, as Mixbook has no control over such charges and cannot foresee the amount charged (if any). You agree that you are the importer of record for goods and services you order and you shall comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.

Disputes

You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived. Such notification shall be sent to the following address: Mixbook Customer Service, #<AddressPresenter:0x0000000c0bc780>.

Returns

All sales are subject to Mixbook’s then-current return policies, as posted on the Returns page.

Title and Risk of Loss

All products purchased through the Service are made pursuant to a shipment contract. Risk of loss and title for such products pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.

Password and Account Security
