3) BILLING AND PAYMENTS
- L & T Credits. All Gifts are paid for by You with L & T Credits, the currency used on the Site (“ L & T Credits ”). L & T Credits are purchased in packages at the prices set forth on the Pricing Page either a la carte or as part of a subscription, and paid for in accordance with the payment terms set forth herein. All L & T Credits are automatically debited when You send Gift Links to Recipients to redeem Gifts or are saved in Your User Account to be debited when you send additional Gift Links. L&T Credits are not refundable, transferrable, or exchangeable. L&T Credits can only be used on the Platform to purchase Gifts from Loop & Tie that will be sent by Loop & Tie to Recipients who redeem Gift Links and have no other utility. Any L&T Credits associated with Your account do not reflect a cash value or balance of US Dollars or any currency. Unauthorized or fraudulent use, resale, acquisition, or distribution of L&T Credits is prohibited. Loop & Tie may cancel, revoke, or otherwise prevent the issuance of L&T Credits if Loop & Tie suspects any unauthorized or fraudulent use of L&T Credits and/or if Loop & Tie mistakenly credits Customer’s account with L&T Credits. L & T Credits must be used by Corporate Users within twelve (12) months of the date of purchase or Your ability to use the L & T Credits will be forfeited, except as otherwise prohibited by law.
- Account Balance. When You purchase L&T Credits and other Products and Services, the purchase will be deducted from Your Payment Method (as defined below) or placed as a pre-paid account balance (an “ Account Balance ”) in Your User Account which will be drawn against for all Fees owed to Loop & Tie for Products and Services purchased by You. If there is not a sufficient amount of money available in your Account Balance at the time a Recipient redeems a Gift Link sent by You, Loop & Tie may, in its sole discretion (i) refuse to complete the requested Gift send, or (ii) charge Your Payment Method all Fees owed for such Gift. Fees charged are as described on the Pricing Page and are not refundable.
- Fees. By using the Platform to send Gifts, You agree to pay Loop & Tie the following:
1) the amount owed for the purchase of L & T Credits that will be debited when you send a Gift Link or deposited into your Account to be debited when you send additional Gift Links;
2) a processing fee, which includes without limitation, fees for processing, inventory, pick and pack services, shipping and handling, service and Sales Taxes, to be calculated as a percentage of L & T Credits purchased by You for the purchase of Gifts to be sent to Recipients by Loop & Tie (“ Processing Fees ”). As used herein, Sales Taxes means any sales, goods, or any similar tax or fee, including without limitation any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including without limitation any value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction for Gifts sent to Recipients on Your behalf;
3) any and all fees for damaged or defective goods returned by Recipients, the cost of replacement goods, and any and all reshipping costs, including without limitation Sales Taxes; and
4) fees for the initial subscription term and any renewal subscription term(s) selected by You (“ Subscription Fees ”) and all other fees for Additional Products and Services purchased by You hereunder, as specified on the Pricing Page (together, “ Fees ”).
- Payment. When You create Your User Account, You will provide Loop & Tie with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (“ Payment Method ”) and hereby authorize Loop & Tie to charge such Payment Method all Fees for all Products and Services selected by You. Such charges shall be made in advance, either annually or in accordance with any different billing frequency stated on the Pricing Page. You are responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to Loop & Tie and notifying Loop & Tie of any changes to such information.
- Change Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by logging onto our Site and editing it in Your account settings or emailing email@example.com. If a payment is not successfully settled due to expiration, insufficient funds or otherwise, You nonetheless will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. If we cannot charge Your account, we reserve the right, but are not obligated, to terminate Your access to our Site or any portion thereof.
- Late Payments. Late payments are subject to interest charges of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is lower. If any charge owing by You is 30 days or more overdue, (or 10 or more days overdue in the case of amounts You have authorized Loop & Tie to charge to Your Payment Method), Loop & Tie may, without limiting its other rights and remedies, accelerate Your unpaid fee obligations so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend Services until such amounts are paid in full, provided that, other than for customers paying by credit card or direct debit whose payment has been declined, Loop & Tie will give You at least 10 days’ prior notice that its account is overdue, before suspending services to You.
- Payment Disputes. Loop & Tie will not exercise its rights under the “Late Payments” or “Suspension or Deactivation of Accounts” section above if Customer is disputing the applicable charges reasonably and in good faith and is cooperating diligently to resolve the dispute.
- Subscription Services. If You elect to purchase a subscription, You authorize us to charge You for Your initial subscription period and a recurring annual Subscription Fee at the then current rate, which may change from time to time as reflected on the Pricing Page. Your first annual subscription cycle (“ Subscription Cycle ”) will be billed immediately. Unless we expressly communicate otherwise or You terminate prior to the end of the then current Subscription Cycle, Your subscription will automatically renew each year and You will be billed on the same date each year. Fees are based on Products and Services purchased at the subscription levels chosen by You and not actual usage. Features purchased cannot be decreased during the relevant Subscription Cycle. If You are a Corporate User and You have purchased a subscription, then (i) L & T Credits purchased as part of that subscription will expire at the end of each Subscription Cycle, meaning that any L & T Credits You don’t use during the applicable Subscription Cycle will not roll over into future months, unless we expressly communicate otherwise, (ii) there will be no refund or payment for any unused L & T Credits, and (iii) when Your Subscription Cycle automatically renews for the next year, You’ll automatically receive Your new allotment of credits.
- Cancellation of Subscription. Unless we communicate otherwise, You may terminate Your subscription at any time before Your subscription renews by going into your account settings and letting us know You would like to cancel or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Following any cancellation, You will continue to have access to your subscription and all L & T Credits, Products, Services or features through the end of Your current prepaid Subscription Cycle, provided however that If Your subscription is terminated by us for nonpayment, Your L & T Credits will expire immediately.
- Payment Refunds. Generally, payment obligations are non-cancellable and Fees are nonrefundable unless we specifically communicate otherwise at the time of purchase. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR MAKE GOODS FOR ANY PRIOR SUBSCRIPTION TERMS OR FOR ANY UNUSED L & T CREDITS, UNSENT GIFTS, OR UNDELIVERABLE OR UNOPENED GIFT LINKS, EXCEPT AS REQUIRED BY LAW.
- Price Changes. We reserve the right to adjust pricing at any time. Unless we expressly communicate otherwise, any price changes to your subscription will take effect on Your next annual billing cycle upon notice communicated through a posting on the Site or such other means as we may deem appropriate from time to time, such as email. If You do not cancel your subscription, You will be deemed to have accepted these new fees.
- Cooling Off Period. Please be advised that the applicable provisions in the below sections entitled “Cooling Off Period”, and “Digital Content” only apply to Users located in the UK or EU. A User may cancel a purchase of L & T Credits or other Products and Services hereunder at any time within a 14 day “cooling-off” period starting the day after the date of purchase of any Product or Service hereunder. To cancel a purchase, the User must clearly inform Loop & Tie , preferably (a) by sending an email to email@example.com providing the User’s name, address, and any order reference number, or (b) by completing and mailing a cancellation form. If the User cancels a purchase within the cooling-off period and before using any L & T Credits or other Products, the full purchase of L & T Credits or other Products and Services will be refunded. If the User cancels a purchase of L & T Credits or other Products and Services purchased within the cooling-off period but has already used some of the L & T Credits or other Products or Services, the value of the purchased L & T Credits used will be deducted from any refund due to the User on a pro rata basis. Loop & Tie tracks L & T Credits and other Products and Services used, and Customer Support will advise the amount of refund when contacted. Refunds will be processed as soon as commercially reasonable and, in any case, within 14 days of receipt of the User’s cancellation request. Refunds will be made by the same method originally used to pay for the purchase, unless agreed otherwise.
- Taxes. Loop & Tie is only responsible for paying to the appropriate authorities (i) taxes assessable against it based on its income, property and employees and (ii) Sales Taxes on Gifts sent to Recipients by Loop & Tie. Except as set forth in the preceding sentence, You are responsible for paying all other taxes, including without limitation (i) any Sales Taxes on the Products, Services and L & T Credits purchased by You hereunder, and (iii) any taxes resulting from your use of the Platform. If Loop & Tie has the legal obligation to pay or collect Sales Taxes for which You are responsible under this section, Loop & Tie will deduct such Sales Taxes from Your Account Balance or charge Your Payment Method unless You provide Loop & Tie with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority. If any such taxes are required to be withheld, You shall pay an amount to such that the net amount payable to Loop & Tie after withholding of taxes shall equal the amount that would have been otherwise payable under this Agreement.
4) TERMS OF SALE
- Corporate Users. After purchasing Promotional Gifts using L&T Credits, Corporate Users send PGLs to Recipients as part of a promotion, loyalty, incentive or award program. Each PGL may be exercised by the Recipient to select and receive (1) specified Gift in the Gift Collection available on the Site. When a Recipient desires to exercise a PGL, such Recipient must visit the Site, select the applicable Gift, and provide a valid shipping address within the continental United States or Canada. The Recipient is responsible for providing accurate and complete delivery information to receive Gifts. Should a selected Gift no longer be available, the Corporate User or Loop & Tie, as the case may be, will attempt to notify the Recipient, at which time the Recipient may choose to receive a substitute Gift. The availability of any specific Gift is not guaranteed. Loop & Tie will make available, restock or eliminate Gifts from the Gift Collections in our sole discretion, without notice to you. Corporate Users may choose the expiration date associated with the PGLs that they send to Recipients, provided however that (i) such expiration date shall be one (1) year from the date that such PGL is sent to Recipient, unless otherwise specified by Corporate User and communicated to Recipient at the time that PGL is sent to Recipient, and (ii) such expiration date must be a date that is no later than the first year anniversary of the date that such Corporate User purchased the PGLs from Loop & Tie. Once a Recipient redeems a PGL sent by a Corporate User, the PGL may not be canceled or used by any other party. PGLs cannot be returned by the Recipient nor refunded to the Corporate User if (i) opened by the Recipient, even if Recipient fails to redeem for a Gift, nor (ii) cancelled by You, (iii) not redeemed by Recipient, (iv) sent to an incorrect email address, (v) the email address bounces, or (vi) the PGL is declined by Recipient, or any variation thereof. Loop & Tie will not credit Corporate User’s account for such declined or unused PGLs, except as required by law. PGLs are not assignable and cannot be used for any purpose or on any Site other than Loop & Tie. PGLs cannot be used in part, and must be used in full to select and receive a Gift that is the same value as the Gift included in the PGL received by Recipient. If a Corporate User has purchased a subscription, then all PGLs sent by Corporate Users to Recipients will be counted towards the total number of PGLs purchased by Corporate Users during the applicable Subscription Cycle, regardless of whether they are (i) opened by the Recipient, even if Recipient fails to redeem for a Gift, (ii) cancelled by You, (iii) not redeemed by Recipient, (iv) sent to an incorrect email address, (v) the email address bounces, or (vi) the PGL is declined by Recipient, or any variation thereof.
- Individual Users. After purchasing Gifts using L & T Credits, Individual Users send LTGLs to Recipients to choose a Gift from a Loop & Tie Gift Collection. Each LTGL may be exercised by the Recipient to select and receive (1) specified Gift in the applicable Gift Collection available on the Site. When a Recipient desires to exercise an LTGL, such Recipient must visit the Site, select the applicable Gift, and provide a valid shipping address within the continental United States or Canada. The Recipient is responsible for providing accurate and complete delivery information to receive Gifts. Should a selected Gift no longer be available, Loop & Tie will attempt to notify the Recipient, at which time the Recipient may choose to receive a substitute Gift. The availability of any specific Gift is not guaranteed. Loop & Tie will make available, restock or eliminate Gifts from the Gift Collections in our sole discretion, without notice to you. Once the Recipient redeems the LTGL sent by an Individual User, it may not be canceled or used by any other party. LTGLs cannot be returned by the Recipient nor refunded to the Individual User if opened by the Recipient, even if Recipient fails to redeem for a Gift. Loop & Tie will not credit Individual User’s account for such declined or unused PGLs, except as required by law. LTGLs are not assignable and cannot be used for any purpose or on any Site other than Loop & Tie. LTGLs cannot be used in part, and must be used in full to select and receive a Gift that is the same value as the Gift included in the LTGL received by Recipient.
- International Gift Collections. Gift Collections are limited to Recipients in the continental United States. If an Individual User would like to send LTGLs to Recipients located outside of the continental United States, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request the ability to send gifts to Recipients outside of the Unites States or Canada. If You are a Corporate User, You must enter into a Platform Agreement with us and elect to send PGLs to Recipients outside of the United States on the applicable Order Form of your Platform Agreement.
- Gift Returns and Refunds. A Gift Link may only be redeemed by a Recipient directly on the Site and cannot be exchanged for cash, in whole or in part, unless required by law. All Gift selections are non-refundable and non-reversible. Gifts may not be returned unless they are deemed defective upon receipt by the Recipient. Any such returns must be coordinated directly with Loop & Tie, but You shall be responsible for any replacement costs and reshipping costs, including without limitation shipping and handling, and Sales Taxes. Loop & Tie disclaims all liability for any act or decision by a Recipient to redeem or refuse to redeem a Gift Link, for any other act or omission of any Recipient, or for any lost, stolen, or misdirected Gift Link to the extent not caused by Loop & Tie. However, You may cancel any Gift Link prior to the Recipient’s redemption thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if You have purchased a subscription, any Gift Links sent by You will be counted towards the total number of LTGLs or PGLs purchased by You pursuant to the subscription tier elected by You and paid for by You, whether the LTGLs or PGLs are received by or redeemed by Recipient, or canceled by You prior to receipt or redemption by Recipient.
- No Liability. Loop & Tie disclaims all liability for any act or decision by a Recipient to exercise or refuse to exercise a Gift Link, for any other act or omission of any Recipient, or for any lost, stolen, or misdirected Gift Link.
