Terms and Conditions
Thank you for using Bookclicker.com
Please read these Terms carefully. By using Bookclicker.com or signing up for an account, you are agreeing to these Terms. This is a legal agreement. The following definitions should help you understand this agreement. Bookclicker is a marketplace offered through the URL www.bookclicker.com (the “Website”) that allows you to buy and sell email newsletter promotions (the “Service”). Bookclicker.com is owned and operated by Bookclicker, a United States federally incorporated limited liability company (“Bookclicker,” “we,” or “us”). Bookclicker.com has employees, independent contractors, and representatives (“our Team”). As a customer of the Service, you are a “Member” according to this agreement (or “you”).
In order to use Bookclicker.com, you must:
1. be at least eighteen (18) years old and able to enter into contracts;
2. complete the registration process;
3. agree to the Terms; and
4. provide true, complete, and up to date contact information.
By using Bookclicker, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you will not use Bookclicker in a way that violates any laws or regulations. Bookclicker may refuse service, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
The Term begins when you sign up for Bookclicker and continues as long as you use the Service. Clicking the button and entering your username means that you have officially “signed” the Terms. If you sign up for Bookclicker on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms on their behalf.
3. Closing Your Account
You or Bookclicker.com may terminate this Agreement at any time and for any reason by giving no notice to the other party. We may suspend our Service to you at any time, with or without cause. We will not refund or reimburse any payments if there is cause, such as a violation of these Terms or our Acceptable Use Policy. Once terminated, we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, from our Website. If you do not log in to your account for 12 or more months, we may treat your account as “inactive” and permanently delete the account and all the data associated with it, with at least 30 days notice.
5. Account and Password
You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You are also responsible for any account that you have access to, whether or not you authorized the use. You will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your accounts. We are not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords.
6. Account Disputes
We do not arbitrate disputes over who owns an account. You will not request access to or information about an account that is not yours, and you will resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based on the content of the account and the contact information listed for that account.
7. API Information
The security and privacy of your data is of the utmost importance and will always be our top priority. Sensitive information such as user passwords and API keys are stored encrypted in our databases. User API keys are used solely for the purposes of listing your Platform, Open Rate, and Click Rate in the Launch Center. We will never pull or store any newsletter subscriber details from your third party newsletter lists. We will only use your API key to perform the functions required to operate our service.
We use Stripe to process payments, which means your credit card details never pass through our servers. We do, however, store the last four digits of your credit card, as well as the expiration date. In order to sell spots on your newsletter, you have to connect your Stripe account. No other payment form is accepted on Bookclicker.com’s site. If you request users to pay you outside of Stripe, we have the right to terminate your account. If you are purchasing spots in the Launch Center, a valid credit card must remain on file. If your credit card is no longer valid, we will contact you to update the card, and your account will be suspended until you do so.
10. Charges for Add-Ons
Some features may be offered as add-ons to your Bookclicker account. If you add-on a feature that has a charge, then you will be billed that additional amount with each billing cycle for as long as the add-on is active. Some add-ons may be intended for particular use cases and may have additional terms or restrictions (“Additional Terms.”) If you use an add-on in a way that violates these Terms or the Additional Terms, then we may terminate your account.
11. Billing Changes
We may change our fees at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our Website and/or sending you a notification by email.
12. Proprietary Rights Owned by Us
You will respect our proprietary rights in the Website and the software used to provide Bookclicker (proprietary rights include patents, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, and copyrights).
