III. KeepTree Accounts

  1. GENERALLY – In order to access some features of the Service, you will have to create a KeepTree account. You may never use another’s account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information.
  2. LIABILITY AND DUTIES – You are SOLELY responsible for the activity that occurs on your account, and you are responsible for keeping your password secure.

IV. Refund and Cancellation Policy

  1. CANCELLATION – Subscribers may cancel their paid account at any time by notifying KeepTree via email at cancel@keeptree.com with the subject heading “Cancel Account.” Account cancellations will take effect:
    1. For monthly subscriptions, at the end of the billing month in which the cancellation occurred.
    2. For yearly subscriptions, at the end of the pro-rated billing month in which the cancellation occurred.
    3. BILLING MONTH – For clarification, a billing month will be calculated beginning on the starting date of the annual or monthly subscription, and the next month will begin on the same numbered date of the subsequent calendar month (ie. if the subscription starts January 21, the next month will begin on February 21, then March 21, etc.).
  2. AUTOMATIC RENEWAL – Monthly subscription paid accounts will be automatically renewed on the same date each month. Yearly subscription paid accounts will automatically be renewed on the same date each year.
  3. REFUNDS – the refund policy outlined below applies to both cancelled accounts and accounts terminated by KeepTree for a violation of these Terms and Services. The availability of refunds will be governed by the following conditions:
    1. FULL REFUND ON ORIGINAL SALE – While we understand that sometimes there are extenuating circumstances, full refunds are given out at the sole discretion of KeepTree, and ONLY apply to an original transaction and not to an automatic renewal. If you would like a full refund:
      1. Forward the original transaction receipt to cancel at keeptree dot com with the subject heading “Refund.”
      2. All full refund requests must come within 3 days of the original sale to be considered.
      3. Included in the forwarded email should be a detailed reason why you are requesting a refund.
      4. Prior to giving you a refund, you must allow KeepTree the opportunity to help you resolve any technical issues that may or may not be happening with your access to the Service.
    2. NO REFUND ON CANCELLED AUTOMATIC MONTHLY RENEWAL – there will be no pro-rated refunds for accounts cancelled (or terminated by KeepTree for a violation of these Terms of Service) mid-month during a monthly renewal cycle. If you cancel during a certain billing month, your account will not be renewed and will be cancelled at the end of the billing month. If you are terminated during a certain billing month, your account will be immediately cancelled, but you will not be entitled to a pro-rated refund.
    3. PARTIAL PRO-RATED REFUND ON CANCELLED YEARLY RENEWAL – If you cancel a year-long subscription (or are terminated by KeepTree for a violation of these Terms of Service), your refund will be prorated on a month to month basis, and you will be responsible for payment on the full billing month during which you cancelled your account (or were terminated). (For example, if you cancel at any time during month three (3) of the twelve (12) month billing period, you will be refunded for only nine (9) months of service, and your account will be cancelled at the end of the third billing month. Termination for violation of these Terms and Services follows the same pro-rated refund policy, but cancellation of the account is immediate).

V. Account Termination and Restriction Policy

  1. TERMINATION OF OR RESTRICTIONS ON ACCOUNT – By using the Service, you acknowledge and agree that KeepTree may take appropriate action, which may include but is not limited to termination or restriction of your access to the service if, under the appropriate circumstances, you are determined to be a repeat OR egregious infringer of the Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, or any other policies for conduct on the service proliferated by KeepTree. KeepTree reserves the right to determine a “repeat” or “egregious” infringer of its policies based on its sole discretion.
  2. REMOVAL OF INNAPPROPRIATE CONTENT – KeepTree reserves the right to decide whether Content violates the Terms for reasons other than copyright infringement, including but not limited to pornography, obscenity, excessive length, or violation of specific Content policies laid out herein. KeepTree may at any time, without prior notice and in its sole discretion, remove such Content and/or terminate a user’s account for submitting such material in violation of the Terms.
  3. REFUND OF TERMINATED ACCOUNT – If you have a paid account that is terminated under this policy, you will be entitled to a refund under the terms of the Refund and Cancellation policy as if you chose to cancel on the date of the termination. The single difference from that policy is that your account will be cancelled immediately as opposed to terminating at the end of the billing month.
