You understand that we reserve the right to terminate your license to use our Website, access our Website, and/or terminate your membership at any time and for any reason, and/or take other action, with or without prior notice to you.
In order to use the services offered on our Website you must register as a member of REI BlackBook. You must register your account in your own legal name. During the registration process, you will specify your name, email address, phone number and home and/or business address and provide a payment method. You are responsible for all activity on and use of your account, and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. Membership is granted in the sole discretion of Company. You are solely responsible in all respects for all use of and for protecting the confidentiality of your credentials. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your credentials and any other suspected breach of security regarding the Website. We are not liable for and you hereby release Company from any liability for any loss or damage arising from the unauthorized use of your credentials. You can find the specific details regarding your membership with REI BlackBook at any time by visiting our Website and clicking on the "My Account" link.
By starting your REI BlackBook membership, you are expressly agreeing that the Company is authorized to charge you a monthly license fee at the then current rate plus any applicable tax, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the REI BlackBook service to the Payment Method you provided during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change My Account information).
Additional charges may include the purchase of data lists, additional property reports, additional email capacity or service level changes you request. Please note that prices and charges are subject to change with notice. As used in these Terms & Conditions, "billing" shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The license fee will be billed at the beginning of the paying portion of your membership and each month thereafter unless and until you cancel your membership. Visit the Website and click on the "Account Manager" link on the "My Account" page to see the commencement date for your next renewal period. The Company automatically bills your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying membership. You will receive a notice via email (to the email address we have on your account) that your invoice is PAID. Membership charges are fully earned upon payment. In the event your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month, the Company will bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying member on January 31st, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28th. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that include differing amounts due to promotional offers, differing amounts due to changes in your membership plan, changes in the amount of applicable sales tax, and charges for additional products and services you may purchase, and you authorize the Company to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts.
The Company may also periodically authorize your card in anticipation of membership or related charges. All fees and charges are fully earned upon payment. Payments are nonrefundable and THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. At any time, and for any reason, the Company may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at the Company’s sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate the Company to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance. The Company may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but the Company will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by visiting the Website and clicking on the "Account Manager" link on the "My Account" page, available at the top of the pages of the Website. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel My Account (see, "Cancellation" below), you authorize the Company to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Your REI BlackBook membership will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your membership or the Company terminates it. You must cancel your membership before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month's license fees to your Payment Method. The Company will bill the monthly license fee at the then current rate plus any applicable tax to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change My Account information). License fees are fully earned upon payment.
You may cancel your REI BlackBook membership at any time and cancellation will be effective at the end of that billing period. THE COMPANY DOES NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH MEMBERSHIP PERIODS. To avoid being charged again, cancel BEFORE your commencement date. To cancel your membership, visit the Website and click the words "Cancel Membership" on the "My Account" page and follow the instructions for cancellation under the heading "Cancel Membership."
REI BlackBook products offer a full refund if canceled within the first 30-days on new pay accounts (PRO Version). Upgrades from free accounts do not qualify. If you upgrade from a free to paying account you'll be charged for your first month when you upgrade.
Cancel within the first 30 days and you won’t be charged. If you cancel your paid account before you are billed 30 days after your original signup then you won’t be charged.
Cancel after 30 days and you won’t be charged again. Once you cancel you won’t be charged again, but you are responsible for whatever charges have already been incurred for the current billing period. For example, if your billing cycle is on the 18th of every month, and you cancel on the 24th, you’ll still have to pay for the current month, but you won’t be charged again after that. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made. How do I cancel my account? You can cancel your account at any time by logging into your account and selecting the “Account Manager” tab (usually found on the My Account menu). Once you are on the Account Manager page, click the “Please cancel my account” link.
