Purchase of Products or Services
You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred through your purchase of any products or services at the time of purchase and at the rates in effect for the billing period in which such fees and charges are incurred. Hallmark does not provide refunds or credits if the price for particular Products or Services previously purchased by you is lowered or is part of a promotional offer. All Products or Services purchased on a non-subscription basis (individual downloads, shipped products, photo cards) or promotional offerings are non-refundable.
If you purchase a subscription, your subscription will begin effective on the date payment is received and will continue for the period provided for the subscription you purchased. Annual subscriptions will terminate at 12:01 am on the calendar date one year and one day from the day the subscription was purchased. Ecard subscriptions cover unlimited access to all ecards (unless specifically excluded), in keeping with the Member Conduct rules in these terms. Due to licensing restrictions, a limited number of Ecards (identified at personalization or billing) may not be available to subscribers with Canadian billing addresses. Ecard subscriptions do not include ecard add-ons, such as additional games, mobile greetings, premium Smilebox templates or gift certificates. Such additional goods and services will be charged separately. Unless specifically provided, premium ecards are only available through our subscription and may not be purchased separately.
Annual subscriptions will be automatically renewed at the end of the subscription term unless you cancel your renewal during the current subscription period or you request a cancellation within thirty (30) days after your renewal date.
Occasionally we offer an opportunity for customers to try our subscription services on a trial basis. To sign up for the trial, you must provide payment information. If you cancel during such trial period the payment information provided will not be billed. If you do not cancel during the trial period we will automatically charge your credit card the subscription fee. No refunds will be issued after the trial period.
Your ecard subscription does not include paper greeting cards, invitations or photo cards. You may purchase paper products separately and you will be charged for each upon purchase. A separate subscription or prepaid plan for paper cards may be offered that allows you to purchase the right to order a set number of cards, prepaid, at a volume discount. Any prepayment, credits or subscription for paper cards or other tangible products may only be redeemed for products covered by such offer. Hallmark.com may discontinue or suspend the offering of such goods or services at any time and will refund the pro-rated value of any credits remaining based on the purchase price paid.
