By becoming a Subscriber to GoCoogs.com, or by using this site (hereinafter the “Site” or “GoCoogs”), you agree to be bound by these additional terms of service. For clarity GoCoogs.com is a “Service” as defined in this agreement. This agreement is subject to change or updated by GoCoogs at any time without notice to you.
Payment Obligation and Credit Card Authorization
All subscription fees are non-refundable.
The Subscriber is responsible for paying periodic subscription fees, and hereby authorizes GoCoogs to charge the subscriber’s credit card, debit card, or bank account, to pay for the ongoing cost of subscription fees via automatic debit. Subscription plans, offerings and length of terms offered may vary. Unless specifically stated, subscribers will be automatically renewed for a term equal to the original term upon expiration of the then-current term, and continually thereafter, unless the Subscriber terminates the subscription by contacting customer care at least 48 hours prior to the renewal date. When termination is requested by a Subscriber, there is no refund for any unused portion of the current subscription. Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that the authorization to charge Subscriber’s credit card for services shall automatically transfer to any successors or assigns of Service for substantially similar services at the same website. Subscriber may not assign or transfer his or her subscription to any other person or entity. Should Subscriber request a refund which is denied for a valid reason under these Terms of Service, and should Subscriber subsequently file a claim against GoCoogs, GoCoogs shall be entitled to collect from Subscriber all costs (including attorneys fees) associated with defending such a claim.
To protect against potential fraud, GoCoogs may take steps to verify the validity of the credit card information you provide to us. The verification process may include debiting an amount between $0.01 and $0.99 from your credit card account and then crediting the same amount back to your credit card or otherwise ceasing the transaction, and also may include asking you to verify the amount debited in order to confirm that you are in possession of your credit card. GoCoogs will only use this process to screen for fraud and will not otherwise debit your credit card account except as part of a transaction conducted through your account for the Service. By providing GoCoogs with your credit card information, you authorize GoCoogs to debit and credit your credit card account for an amount less than one dollar for such verification purposes.
Free Trial Subscriptions and Coupons
Sometimes, GoCoogs may offer promotional free trial subscriptions to the subscription service. Subscribers that sign up for a free trial subscription will be automatically renewed at the normal subscription rate at the end of the trial period, unless the Subscriber cancels at least 24 hours before the end of the trial.
Only one free trial period is allowed per subscriber. Subsequent subscriptions do not qualify for free trials.
GoCoogs may offer coupons or other promotional offers from time to time. In these situations, a special discounted price may be applicable for a term, followed by a higher price after the initial promotional term. By subscribing, you agree that you will be responsible for all payments as specified in the offer, and you agree that GoCoogs may adjust the pricing of such plans, as specified in the offer, promotional materials or coupon, without notice or other communication to you.
A subscriber-only message board is included in GoCoogs subscriptions. The accepted standards of conduct in these communities are determined by the publisher of GoCoogs. Subscribers and registered users agree that GoCoogs has the right to enforce these standards, including deletion of posts, blacklisting/banning users, or removing access to premium message boards with no refund to the Subscriber.
By subscribing or using GoCoogs, you agree that GoCoogs and the publisher have the right to delete your posts or blacklist you or any other user at any time if they believe that action is in the best interest of the site and the reason need not be disclosed.
Subscriber must promptly inform GoCoogs of any of the following: changes in the expiration date of any credit card used in connection with the service; changes in home or billing address; and apparent breaches of security, such as loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of an ID or password. Until GoCoogs is notified by e-mail of a breach in security, the Subscriber will remain liable for any unauthorized use of the GoCoogs.
