1. DESCRIPTION AND USE OF OUR WEBSITE
We provide Visitors and Registered Users with access to the Services as described below.
Visitors. Visitors, as the term implies, are people who do not register with us, but want to explore the Website. No login is required for Visitors. Visitors can: (i) view all publicly-available content on the Website; and (ii) email us.
Registered Users. Registered Users can do all the things that Visitors can do, and: (i) purchase products and services through our Website; (ii) access exclusive content available only to Registered Users; (iii) create, access, manage, and update their own personal accounts on the Website; (iv) post comments and other content in designated areas provided by FriendsinFilm ; (v) sign up for our various programs; (vi) sign up for alerts and other notifications; and (vii) become part of the FriendsinFilm community.
SIGN-IN NAME; PASSWORD; UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS
During the registration process for Registered Users, we will ask you to create an account, which includes a Sign-In Name, a Password, and perhaps certain additional information that will assist in authenticating your identity when you log-in in the future (“Unique Identifiers”). When creating your account, you must provide true, accurate, current, and complete information. Each Sign-In Name and corresponding Password can be used by only one Registered User, and sharing your access credentials with others (especially if they are using your credentials to access our proprietary Content (as defined below)) is a material breach of this Agreement. You are solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Sign-In Name, Password, and Unique Identifiers, as well as for any use, misuse, or communications entered through the Website or its dedicated communications sections. You will promptly inform us of any need to deactivate a Password or Sign-In Name, or change any Unique Identifier. We reserve the right to delete or change your Password, Sign-In Name, or Unique Identifier at any time and for any reason and shall have no liability to you for any loss or damage caused by such action.
FEES AND PAYMENT
As consideration for any purchase you make through the Website, you shall pay FriendsinFilm all applicable fees and taxes. We (or our third-party payment processor) shall authorize your credit card, debit card, bank account, or other approved payment method you provided during the registration process for the full payment of the outstanding balances, fees, and any applicable taxes, and you hereby consent to the same. All payments will be charged and made in U.S. dollars.
If you choose to use our payment plan option inplace of paying for the product in full at time of purchase you agree that we are authorized to automatically withdraw the amount due to us on or after the date the payment is due using the payment method you entered at time of signup and any update or replacement made to that payment method.
You must provide current, complete, and accurate billing and information regarding your credit card, debit card, or other means of payment. You must promptly update all billing information (such as billing address, account number, card number, and expiration date) to keep your account current, complete, and accurate, and you must promptly contact us if your payment card is lost or stolen, or if you become aware of a potential breach of account security (such as an unauthorized disclosure or use of your Sign-In Name or Password). You agree to promptly provide updated or replacement expiration dates for your payment card in the event that the payment card you provided us expires, and hereby authorize FriendsinFilm to obtain or determine the renewal date if reasonably practicable. We reserve the right to charge any renewal card issued to you to the same extent as the expired card. If payment is not received from your payment card issuer, bank, or other payment provider, you hereby agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. You agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of your payment card may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which you will be responsible to pay. You are advised to check with your bank and credit card issuer for details.
