PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SALE CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS. THESE INCLUDE VARIOUS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS, AND A DISPUTE RESOLUTION CLAUSE THAT GOVERNS HOW DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED.
You must be a Paid Subscriber to access certain goods, services, and content offered on the JibJab Sites, such as the JibJab Premium Content Services described in Section 1.4 below (collectively “Subscription-based Features”). JibJab may offer different subscription plans across different platforms, and some subscription plans may include special promotional pricing with differing conditions and limitations. With respect to any Subscription-based Features, you acknowledge and agree that, by making such features accessible to Paid Subscribers in general, JibJab will have fully satisfied its obligation to deliver or otherwise provide such features to you (and/or to your intended authorized recipients), regardless of your or your recipients’ failure or inability to use such features.
1.1 NON-TRIAL SUBSCRIPTIONS
If you decide to register for a non-trial subscription, we will charge you the applicable subscription fee for the applicable subscription term using your selected payment method at the time of purchase. If JibJab alters the subscription fee or makes other changes to your subscription, you will be notified in advance about the changes via email. It is important to keep in mind that if you signed up for a subscription during a promotional period, the promotional price may only be active for a certain period of time, based on our sole discretion.
1.2 NON-TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION RENEWALS
As a Paid Subscriber, your non-trial subscription will renew either annually or monthly, depending on your applicable subscription plan. For example, if you start your annual subscription on March 31st, you will be billed on March 30th the following year. If you start your monthly subscription on March 31st, you will be billed on April 30th the following month. For some JibJab products and services, your subscription will automatically be renewed at the end of the subscription term unless you turn off the auto-renew feature or cancel your subscription prior to the expiration date of your then-existing subscription. To cancel your subscription auto-renewal, please go to the “My Account” section of the JibJab Site(s) where you have a membership account or to the applicable third-party interface if you subscribed to JibJab through a third-party. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, your access to the Subscription-based Features will continue only for the remainder of your applicable non-trial subscription term.
You may cancel your non-trial subscription at any time. However, PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, your access to the Subscription-based Features will continue only for the remainder of your applicable non-trial subscription term. At JibJab’s sole discretion, we may provide a discount or other accommodation to some or all of our Paid Subscribers at any time and for any reason. Our offering of a discount or other accommodation in one instance does not entitle you to, or obligate us to provide, the same treatment in the future for similar instances.
If you pay for a non-trial subscription through a third-party service (such as through the iTunes App Store, for example), you may need to access your account through that applicable third-party interface to cancel your subscription to or turn off auto-renew for the JibJab Services. The billing information related to your non-trial subscription may also be accessible via your account with the applicable third party.
1.4 TRIAL PERIODS
We know that sometimes you need a little time to try out the services before wanting to commit. In order to allow customers an opportunity to “sample” our products and services, occasionally we offer trial periods during which you will have the ability to cancel your subscription within a stated period of time and receive a full refund. If you do not cancel during the trial period, your trial subscription will automatically be converted to a non-trial subscription upon expiration of the trial period. If you cancel after the trial period has ended, NO REFUND will be given, whether in whole or in part, and your access to the Subscription-based Features will continue only for the remainder of the non-trial subscription term. To cancel your trial subscription, please go to the “My Account” section of the JibJab Site(s) where you have a membership account or to the applicable third-party interface if you subscribed to JibJab through a third-party.
1.5 JIBJAB PREMIUM CONTENT SERVICES
JibJab offers a premium subscription that allows our customers to experience all the fun content we have. It is important to keep in mind that a subscription is required to access certain parts of JibJab’s service that allows you to create digital greeting cards and personalized media using certain content, including without limitation, audio, audiovisual, and/or still images (as the service may permit) from JibJab’s library (the “JibJab Premium Content”), to personalize such JibJab Premium Content (in certain instances), and to share such JibJab Premium Content with others, all to the extent permitted by JibJab (the “JibJab Premium Content Services”).
Unless otherwise noted, you will have access to your JibJab Premium Content for a minimum of two (2) weeks upon creation, unless earlier removed by you or your recipient. All JibJab Premium Content from JibJab’s library that is offered as part of the JibJab Premium Content Services constitute part of JibJab’s proprietary content, and your use thereof is subject to your compliance with the JibJab Terms of Service.
In addition, any messages that you include with your JibJab Premium Content must comply with all terms and conditions regarding User Materials and User Conduct as set forth in the JibJab Terms of Service.
For the avoidance of doubt, the JibJab Premium Content Services are services (notwithstanding any use of the terms “purchase,” “buy,” “sell,” “order,” or the like on the JibJab Sites or in these Terms of Sale), and neither you nor your recipient obtains or retains any rights or ownership interest of any kind in or to any JibJab Premium Content, and neither you nor your recipient may reproduce, distribute, transfer, modify, create derivative works, or otherwise use such content in any manner other than as expressly authorized by JibJab.
All use of the JibJab Premium Content Services is for your personal, non-commercial use only.
1.6 JIBJAB’S RIGHT TO TERMINATE
We hope that it never has to reach this point, but if necessary, JibJab reserves the right to terminate your account and/or subscription at any time for any breach or violation by you of the JibJab Terms of Service. In the event of such termination, you will not be entitled to any refund of any unused portion of the subscription fee previously paid by you.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept exchange of a Faulty Item for a different item. If you wish to purchase a different item, you may return the Faulty Item for a refund and place a new order for the item you wish to purchase.

You may purchase a gift subscription(s) that can be redeemed by your recipient within five (5) years of purchasing the account. A gift subscription has a term of five (5) years from the date it is issued.

Gift subscriptions can only be redeemed once and cannot be exchanged for cash.

When purchasing and scheduling Live Video Calls on or through the HelloSanta.com site, there will be different timeslots available for you to choose from. However, you may be unable to choose an available timeslot that fits with your personal schedule.

If a Live Video Call is disconnected or otherwise terminated prematurely (as determined by JibJab in its sole discretion), you may contact us to reschedule in a different timeslot. Similarly, if you schedule a Live Video Call and subsequently need to change the timeslot, you may contact us to reschedule. All purchases of Live Video Calls are final, non-cancelable, and non-refundable (except as expressly otherwise provided in these Terms of Sale or as otherwise determined by JibJab in its sole discretion).

Such subscription enhancements may be added for an additional NON-REFUNDABLE fee and may be cancelled at any time (provided that you will continue to have access to your purchased enhancements for the duration of your basic subscription).
