- BETA TERMS - site in pre-release form.
- SUBSCRIPTIONS; PAYMENTS; AND CANCELLATIONS.
(a) Subscriptions. By registering for an Account, you may obtain access to the paid-portion of the Service (a “Subscription ”). Each Subscription and the rights and privileges provided therein is personal and non-transferable. Home Valet reserves the right to change prices for paid Subscriptions at any time, and does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of promotions or price decreases.
(b) Payments. If you purchase any services that we offer for a fee, either on a one-time or on a Subscription basis, you agree and consent to Home Valet’s use of third-party payment providers for billing and processing online payments, and you agree to pay the applicable fees for the Subscription (including, without limitation, periodic fees for monthly or annual Subscriptions) as they become due, plus all related taxes, and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. Your obligation to pay fees continues through the end of the Subscription Term (defined in Section 6(c) below).
If you do not pay on time or if Home Valet cannot charge your payment method for any reason, Home Valet reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your access to the Service and Account and terminate these Terms. You are expressly agreeing that Home Valet is permitted to bill you for any applicable fees, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Service and the fees will be billed to the payment method designated on your registration with the Service and, if applicable, thereafter at regular intervals for the remainder of your Subscription Term. By providing a payment method, You expressly authorize Home Valet to charge said payment method at regular intervals subject to Your particular Subscription. If you have a balance due on any Account, you agree that Home Valet may charge such unpaid fees to your payment method or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees.
(c) AUTOMATIC RENEWAL TERMS: To facilitate continuity of the Service to you, each paid Subscription contains automatic renewal terms. Home Valet will automatically renew your paid Subscription as per the Subscription period of your choosing (each a “ Subscription Term”), on the anniversary of that date that Home Valet first charges your Account for the first Subscription fee, and, as authorized by you during the Subscription sign-up process, Home Valet will charge your Account with the applicable Subscription fee and any sales or similar taxes that may be imposed on your Subscription fee payment (unless you cancel prior to the anniversary date). Each Subscription renewal period is for the same Subscription Term as the prior one, unless otherwise agreed between you and Home Valet. Home Valet reserves the right to modify pricing at any time (but not the price in effect for your then-current Subscription Term), upon advance notice to you. If you have not cancelled your Subscription or turned off the auto-renew function within the specified time after receiving notice of a price change, your Subscription will auto-renew at the price indicated in your notice.
(d) CANCELLATION TERMS: Upon first signing up for a Subscription to the Service, you shall have seven (7) calendar days to cancel for a full refund. IF YOU CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT AT ANY TIME AFTER THE INITIAL SEVEN (7) DAYS, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY REFUND. AFTER THE INITIAL SEVEN-DAY PERIOD, YOU MAY CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AT ANY TIME, BUT SUCH CANCELLATION SHALL BECOME EFFECTIVE SOLELY UPON EXPIRATION OF YOUR THEN-CURRENT SUBSCRIPTION TERM. You agree and understand that you will be charged Subscription fees until the expiration of your then-current Subscription Term and Subscription fees will not be refunded, in whole or in part, subject to applicable law. You will not be eligible for a pro-rated refund of any portion of the Subscription fees paid for any unused days of the then-current Subscription Term. If you have any problems or concerns with your cancellation please contact us at [email protected] for assistance.
- PURCHASES OF THE HOME VALET SMART BOX
(a) Orders. If you are a Registered User, you may purchase a Smart Box (“Box”). In order to make purchases on the Service, you must be 18 years of age or older, and have a shipping address within the United States of America, any US Territory or an APO/FPO address with a US zip code. At the present time we do not ship internationally. By making an offer to purchase a Box, you expressly authorize Home Valet to perform credit checks and, where deemed necessary, to transmit or to obtain your credit card information solely to authenticate your identity, to validate your credit/debit card, to obtain an initial credit card authorization and/or to authorize individual purchase transactions, and to process payments like indicated in Section 6(b).
When placing an order, you must follow the instructions on the Service as to how to place your order and for making changes to your order before you submit it to us through the Service. All orders are subject to our acceptance and availability and any Box in your shopping cart is not reserved and may be purchased by other customers until your order is complete and accepted by us. Home Valet offers Boxes for sale that are in stock and available for shipping. Occasionally however, we may be waiting for shipment from our suppliers. Home Valet may, in its sole discretion, offer you, from time to time, the opportunity to either (i) place in advance a “pre-order” for such Box which may ensure that you receive the item on a priority basis once the Box have been delivered to Home Valet and/or (ii) to register your e-mail address for notification of the arrival of the selected Box not in stock. Your rights regarding pre-orders are the same as those for any other purchase from Home Valet. Once you place an order, you will receive an e-mail acknowledging the details of your order. We will not be obligated to supply a Box to you until we have accepted your order for such Box by e-mail in a form called a “Confirmation of Order” stating that we are accepting your order. When we send you an acknowledgement, we may give you an order reference number and details of the Box(es) you have ordered.
We may, in our discretion, refuse to accept an order from you for any reason, including if we are unable to obtain authorization for payment, shipping restrictions apply to a particular item, the Box you order is out of stock or do not satisfy our quality control standards or are withdrawn. We will not be liable to you or any third-party by reason of our withdrawing any Box(s) from the Service, whether or not the Box(s) have been sold, removing, screening or editing any materials or content on the Service, refusing to process a transaction or unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun. Until the time when we accept your order, we reserve the right to refuse to process your order and you reserve the right to cancel your order. If you have cancelled your order before we have accepted it, or if we cancel your order at any time for any reason, then we will promptly refund any payment already made by you or your credit/debit card company to us for the order of the Box(es). If you discover that you have made a mistake with your order after you have submitted it to us, please contact us immediately by e-mail to [email protected].
(b) Prices. Prices shown on the Service are in US Dollars and are exclusive of taxes and delivery charges. Once you select a Box that you wish to order and place it in your shopping cart, you may see all charges you must pay, including taxes, if applicable, and any delivery charges, on the Review page by clicking “checkout”. All prices and offers remain valid as advertised from time to time, except in cases of patent error as set forth below. If the price for a Box in your order changes before we accept your order, we will contact you and ask you to confirm that you wish to proceed with the order at the amended price. While every effort is made to ensure that details on the Service are accurate, we may from time to time discover an error in the pricing of a Box. If we discover an error in the pricing of a Box in your order, we will notify you as soon as possible. We will not be under any obligation to accept or fulfill an order for a Box that was advertised at an incorrect price and reserve the right to cancel such an order that has been accepted or is in transit. If you order a Box that is priced incorrectly for any reason, we will e-mail or telephone you to inform you that we have not accepted your order and/or that the (relevant part of your) order has been cancelled. If you or your credit/debit card company have already paid for the Box(es), we will refund the full amount as soon as reasonably practicable. In the event that a Box is recalled in transit, we will process your refund once the Box have been returned to us.
(c) Payment. Payments for a Box can be made by credit card and any other methods which may be provided for on the Service from time to time. Payment will be debited and cleared from your Account in full at the time you place your order, including with respect to any pre-order. You confirm that the credit/debit card or payment account that is being used is yours or that you have been specifically authorized by the owner of the credit/debit card or payment account to use it and that there are sufficient funds or credit facilities to cover the cost of the Box(es) ordered. We take reasonable care to make our Service secure. All credit/debit card transactions on the Service are processed using payment services providers that encrypt your credit/debit card details in secure host environments. We take reasonable care, in so far as it is within our control to do so, to keep the details of your order and payment secure. However, in the absence of negligence on our part we cannot be held liable for any loss you may suffer if a third-party procures unauthorized access to any data and/or personal information that you provide when accessing or ordering from the Service.
(d) Delivery. Home Valet is responsible for each purchase that you make during the time it is in transit until it is delivered to your specified delivery address. Our goal is to deliver the Box(s) to you at the place of delivery requested by you in your order, provided that it is located within the United States, a US Territory or an APO/FPO address with a US zip code. Please note that it may not be possible for us to deliver to some locations. Should this be the case, we will inform you using your contact details and arrange for cancellation of the order or an alternative delivery address. Delivery of a Box may require a signature acknowledging receipt to be delivered, in which case the Box cannot be left at places of delivery stipulated in your order if you, or someone you have authorized to accept delivery, is not present to accept delivery. Anyone at the delivery address who is 18 years of age or older will be deemed to be authorized to accept delivery on your behalf. Once a Box is delivered to you, or if a signature is required, delivery is signed for by you or by someone at the delivery address, responsibility for your purchased Box(s) passes to you. Although it is our intention to deliver Box(es) in accordance with any confirmed delivery date we have given to you for any order which we accept, we cannot guarantee any firm delivery dates. We will endeavor to notify you if we anticipate that we will be unable to meet a confirmed delivery date, but in no event will we be responsible for any losses, liabilities, costs, damages, charges or expenses arising out of late delivery. Upon delivery of an order, you agree to inspect the Box(es) for the correct quantities and any obvious faults, defects or damage.
With respect to Box that cannot be delivered without a signature, if delivery is delayed through your unreasonable refusal to accept delivery, if you are not at the place of delivery stipulated in your order on the designated delivery date, if you refuse to sign for the delivery of the Box(s) on delivery or if you do not (within two weeks of our first attempt to deliver the Box(es) to you) accept delivery or collect the Box(es) from the carrier, then we may (without affecting any other right or remedy available to us) do either or both of the following: (i) charge you for our reasonable storage fee(s) and other costs reasonably incurred by us, including redelivery costs; and/or (ii) no longer make the Box(es) available for delivery or collection and notify you that we are immediately cancelling your order, in which case we will refund to you or your credit/debit card company, as applicable, any money already paid to us, less our reasonable administration charges, including the amount charged for attempting to deliver and then returning the Box(es).
(e) No Returns. All sales of the Box(es) are final and not returns are accepted unless is due to damage or a faulty Box (see Section 7(f) below).
(f) Limited Warranty. Home Valet warrants that the Box(es) will be free from any material defects of workmanship for 365 days following the date of original purchase (the “Warranty Period”). Please refer to our Smart Box Warranty (coming soon) for additional legal terms and for how to make a warranty claim. Please contact Home Valet at [email protected] (Attn: Warranty), for more information.
