User may use the seven-day trial period for one time only. User agrees that it will not falsely or fraudulently attempt to reverse or charge back any credit card or ACH payment insofar as it is impossible absent direct third-party fraud to sign up and enroll for the www.foreclosure.com subscription service without a valid credit card or bank ABA routing number or account number in hand and such personal information as is required to validate the use of the same.
User understands that there is a one-time fee of $0.99 (ninety-nine cents) associated with each letter he or she sends through the "What To Do Next" feature on www.foreclosure.com, which covers materials, as well as processing, printing, folding, stuffing, postage and first-class mailing. "What To Do Next" feature is only available to a www.foreclosure.com subscriber, not a trial User. Therefore, User who decides to use "What To Do Next" feature agrees to pay the monthly subscription amount. User also understands his or her billing method on file will be automatically charged each month thereafter until he or she decides to cancel the subscription. Each letter User sends through "What To Do Next" on www.foreclosure.com will be aggregated on a monthly basis and appear as one paid service on his or her billing statement in addition to the monthly subscription amount. All purchases made through the "What To Do Next" feature on www.foreclosure.com are non-refundable because of the hard costs (paper, printing, envelope, first-class stamps, handling fees, etc.). User can view his or her "What To Do Next" purchase history at anytime through the "Profile" section provided with his or her www.foreclosure.com account.
User understands that there is a recurring monthly fee to access the data on the www.foreclosure.com mobile application, as well as the website www.foreclosure.com, which will be processed through iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and/or other third-party online application "stores" where applicable. There is no trial period offered through www.foreclosure.com mobile application. Once the www.foreclosure.com mobile application is downloaded, User agrees to pay the monthly subscription amount and understands his or her credit card on file with the respective third-party online application "store" will be automatically billed each month thereafter until he or she decides to cancel the subscription. Upon registration, User will be provided with a unique username/password combination to access the data on the www.foreclosure.com mobile application, as well as the website www.foreclosure.com. User may continue to access www.foreclosure.com's database online and/or through the application until he or she cancels the subscription and/or while the account is in good standing.
User can cancel his or her service at any time.
There are four methods to cancel an account, including:
User will be asked to provide his or her email address and access code to complete the cancelation process. If user cannot retrieve his or her email address or access code he or she must call the customer service department via telephone through the number provided in the "Contact Us" section, a link to which can be found on the main homepage at the bottom of the screen.
www.foreclosure.com will not accept an "email," "phone call," "phone message," or "fax" as a method of canceling service unless the customer speaks directly with a customer service representative or receives confirmation of cancelation via email through the "Cancel Membership" online option.
User must use the cancel process stated above to cancel this service. Refunds will not be issued to a user based upon his or her personal views or opinions of www.foreclosure.com or for any period of service that is in excess of two (2) months when the user has used the service or has otherwise obtained information from the site through the assigned access code. www.foreclosure.com can directly determine if an individual account has been used. By way of example if a user has been a subscriber to the service for six (6) months any cancelation or refund shall be limited to a maximum of two (2) months service to be addressed on a case-by-case basis. This includes the quality of content, delays in updates, or related matters. Users have the option to cancel (see "Cancelations") within the seven-day trial period. Any exceptions to this policy are at the sole discretion of www.foreclosure.com. User agrees that it will not falsely or fraudulently attempt to reverse or charge back any credit card or ACH payment insofar as it is impossible absent direct third-party fraud to sign up and enroll for the www.foreclosure.com subscription service without a valid credit card or bank ABA routing number or account number in hand and such personal information as is required to validate the use of the same.
www.foreclosure.com will not be held responsible for charges incurred because of User inputting an invalid or incorrect email address when signing up. Furthermore, User's non-use of the site, misplaced or lost access codes, shall not justify User receiving any refund for any services charged.
This Web site contains links to third party sites. User accesses these sites at User's own risk; www.foreclosure.com is not responsible for the contents, changes, updates, or other links contained in a linked site. www.foreclosure.com provides these links merely as a convenience, and the inclusion of such links does not imply an endorsement by www.foreclosure.com of the site.
Any third party desiring to link to the Web site must link to the Web site's homepage located at www.foreclosure.com. No one may link to any other page of this Web site without the prior written consent of www.foreclosure.com.
By signing up to the trial or for any direct service provided by www.foreclosure.com and by providing either credit card, debit card or ACH transaction information, the User consents to the subsequent recurring billing for services/access provided by www.foreclosure.com after the expiration of any trial period to the extent said period is applicable or in the event a trial is not applicable, User consents to recurring billing for services/access provided on an ongoing basis. Such recurring billing shall continue until such time as the User cancels the service in accordance with the cancellation policy. DEBIT CARD CUSTOMERS ARE ADVISED THAT BASED ON THE TRIAL PROGRAM AND DEBIT CARD PROCESSING SYSTEM, ONE MONTHS PAYMENT WILL TEMPORARILY REDUCE THE OPEN TO BUY BALANCE ON THE DEBIT CARD AT THE TIME OF SIGNUP SO THAT SUFFICIENT FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE EVENT THE CUSTOMER CONTINUES WITH THE SERVICE AFTER THE TRIAL. IN THE EVENT THE SERVICE IS CANCELED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CANCELATION POLICY THIS OPEN TO BUY BALANCE WILL BE AVAILABLE AFTER CANCELATION. No funds are transferred to www.foreclosure.com from debit cards until after the expiration of the trial period. User agrees that it will not falsely or fraudulently attempt to reverse or charge back any credit card or ACH payment insofar as it is impossible absent direct third-party fraud to sign up and enroll for the www.foreclosure.com subscription service without a valid credit card or bank ABA routing number or account number in hand and such personal information as is required to validate the use of the same.
User understands and acknowledges that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists or is created between User and www.foreclosure.com as a result of use of the Web site.
