Acceptance of Terms
BookBrowse LLC ('BookBrowse') provides its service to you subject to the
fullowing Terms of Service.
Description of Service
BookBrowse provides users with a rich collection of book related information
(the 'Service') via its website at www.bookbrowse.com. Additional features, including
BookBrowse's online magazines are
available for an annual or quarterly membership fee (BookBrowse Membership).
The Service, including BookBrowse Membership, will be provided only at www.bookbrowse.com.
BookBrowse provides two email mailing lists: One is for BookBrowse Members to
notify them when new content is available at BookBrowse. The other is a free mailing
list providing occasional emails to those who opt-in to receive them at BookBrowse.
BookBrowse will make all reasonable efforts to deliver emails to individuals but
is not responsible for the successful delivery of these messages.
You are responsible for obtaining access to BookBrowse and understand that
such access may involve the payment of fees to third parties such as Internet
service providers, and that you are responsible for these fees.
You agree not to copy anything from this site for publication elsewhere unless
you have been given specific written permission by the copyright holder.
Modification to Service
BookBrowse reserves the right at any time, and from time to time, to modify or
discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with
or without notice. You agree that BookBrowse shall not be liable to you or to
any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the
BookBrowse may change, add or remove any part of this Agreement, or any other
terms associated with the use of the site, at any time, by posting a notice of
such changes to the Terms of Service page of the Web site. Any changes shall
become part of the Agreement and shall apply as soon as such a notice is posted.
By continuing to use BookBrowse after the notice is posted, you are indicating
your acceptance of those changes.
BookBrowse Membership Registration and Account Creation
As part of the registration and membership creation process required to become a BookBrowse Member, you will select a member ID (login) and a password, and will
provide BookBrowse with certain registration information, all of which must be
accurate. If any of your registration information changes, you must update it by
visiting your 'My Account' page. You are solely responsible for all usage or
activity on your BookBrowse Membership account and are solely responsible for maintaining
the confidentiality of your password.
Non-Transferability of Membership
Your right to use this site is personal to you; you may not sub-license,
transfer, sell or assign this agreement to any third party without our approval
(this includes sharing your login information with anyone not listed as a registered user on your account). Any attempt to do so
may result in the cancellation of your account.
Membership Payments, Renewals and Cancellations
BookBrowse charges a fee for access to its membership features. Members agree
to pay all fees and charges, including applicable taxes (if any), incurred through your
account at the rates in effect for the billing period in which such fees and
charges are incurred.
To become a member you must provide BookBrowse with valid credit card
information, or a valid check or money order (check/money order only available
for annual payments). By submitting such information, you give BookBrowse
permission to charge all fees incurred through your account to the credit card
you designate on the registration form. All fees are payable at the commencement
of the membership period.
BookBrowse offers two membership options for individuals paying by credit card: A one-year membership
and a 3-month membership. Both these options automatically charge
your account at the end of each payment period. Annual members
will receive an email notifying them of the renewal at least two weeks before the renewal date; quarterly members renew
automatically without notification.
Memberships paid by check and gift memberships do not renew automatically.
BookBrowse also offers group memberships that allow organizations such as libraries to provide access to their patrons. This access is via a specially customized login page requiring the user to either be on a library computer or enter an ID number (usually their library card number). Only libraries that have an active subscription can provide access to their patrons, and only via a specially customized login page - never with a regular individual membership login and password.
You may cancel your account at any time by visiting your 'My Account' page
and clicking "Cancel". If you cancel, you retain full access to BookBrowse's membership features until the end of your paid membership period but will not receive email reminders.
BookBrowse reserves the right to change the amount of, or basis for
determining, any fees, and to institute new fees. By becoming a BookBrowse member you give permission to BookBrowse to automatically change your membership fee and
therefore your credit card charge. You will be notified of changes to the price at least 30 days
before any increase by email and via a message on your 'My Account' page.
With some exceptions (which will be clearly posted prior to the commitment to purchase; see below) you
may request a full refund at anytime in the first 3 months from the date of
first enrollment by emailing BookBrowse with your login name. Refunds for those who have been members longer
than 3 months are at the discretion of BookBrowse and will be a maximum of the
portion of the membership unused at that point (e.g. if 6 months of a 12 month
membership had been used, the maximum refund woold be half of the annual
Occasionally special offers and other promotions may prevent BookBrowse from offering the standard refund policy. In this case,
any exception to the refund policy (such as special limited time promotions, gift certificates) will be clearly posted prior to the commitment to purchase.
Gift memberships are non-refundable.
General exceptions to the refund policy (such as caused by special limited time promotions) are solely
at the discretion of BookBrowse, and will be clearly posted in the membership signup page.
BookBrowse reserves the right to delete all personal information (such as 'My
Reading List') belonging to members who do not renew their membership within 3 months of it expiring.
