3. AUTOMATIC RENEWAL POLICY
Sharefaith offers four (4) subscription plans, each with their own subscription period. The Media Monthly and Website Monthly plans have a 30-day subscription period, while the Media Yearly and Website Yearly Plans both have a 1-year subscription period. To ensure uninterrupted member access, subscriptions automatically renew upon expiration, and the regular membership fee (without initial discount or seasonal coupons) will be charged to your credit card. Auto-renewal notification is given permanently on the MY HOME section of the customer’s control panel along with multiple email notifications sent in advance of renewals. Upon renewal, all customers will receive an email receipt. Both Media Monthly and Website Monthly plans require a 3-month minimum membership period upon original registration before cancellation can take place.
4. Refunds, Cancellations and Credits
The 7 Day Free Trial Period
Sharefaith provides a safe, risk-free 7-day trial to give a user access to browse any of our products, demo our church websites and download selected “Free Trial Only” products. A user can cancel at any time during the 7-Day Trial period or subscribe for a full membership.
Why We Require a Credit Card for a Free Trial
Every user is allowed only 1 (one) free trial. During registration, we ask for a valid Credit Card in order to prevent abuse of our system or multiple free trial accounts. You will not be charged since the free trial is free. After 7 days, if not canceled, your free trial will roll over into a full Media Monthly membership.
Cancelling a Free Trial:
You can cancel a free trial at any time during the 7 days. Members are notified of the expiration of the free trial permanently throughout their trial period through daily emails, a permanent countdown clock on each page of Sharefaith and on their MY HOME control panel. Simply cancel by clicking on the CANCEL BUTTON on the MY HOME page. When cancelled, your free trial will not roll over and no billing will occur.
Free Trial Refund Policy:
With 0 account activity and 0 downloads within 5 days after the Free Trial rolled over into a Media Monthly membership, a user will only be required to pay for the first month of the Media Monthly membership.
If a user contacts the company more than 5 days past the Free Trial rollover period, or if any account activity or downloads occurred since the Free Trial rollover period, a user will be locked into a 3-month minimum subscription to the Media Monthly membership plan and can cancel thereafter.
Full Membership Refunds:
A full membership or regular account defines a signup that took place without a Free Trial. If you chose to become a member without a free trial, you received a discount. Your membership will renew, based on your membership plan, on the date of creation. Your credit card will be charged for a full membership, relating to your membership plan.
Legacy Memberships: A Legacy Membership is defined as a membership initiated before April 1st, 2013. A refund for a Legacy Membership can only take place by phone, up to ten (10) days after the membership renewal, provided that 0 account activity or 0 downloads have taken place on the account in question. After 10 days, the membership will be cancelled and no refund will be issued.
Media Yearly Memberships: A refund for a media yearly membership can only take place by phone, up to ten (10) days after the membership renewal, provided that 0 account activity or 0 downloads have taken place on the account in question. After 10 days, the membership will be cancelled and the user will be pro-rated based on the amount of months passed since the user was charged, based on the Media Monthly subscription fee. If the user created their account less than 3 months before calling to cancel the service, they are still bound by the 3-month commitment required of the Media Monthly membership and will be pro-rated all but 3 months of service and their account will be set to expire 3 months from its creation date.
Website Yearly Memberships: If a customer wishes to cancel a Website Yearly Membership, the membership will be cancelled and the user will be pro-rated based on the amount of months passed since the user was charged, based on the Website Monthly subscription fee. If the user created their account less than 3 months before calling to cancel the service, they are still bound by the 3-month commitment required of the Website Monthly membership and will be pro-rated all but 3 months of service and their account will be set to expire 3 months from its creation date.
Media Monthly Memberships: All new users signing up for a Media Monthly Membership are committing to a 3-month minimum Media Monthly subscription. After the 3-month period, customers can request cancellation of their subscription and have their automatic renewal disabled to prevent future automatic payments. No refunds are issued for a Media Monthly Membership.
Website Monthly Memberships: If a customer wishes to cancel a Website Yearly Membership, the membership will be cancelled and the user will be pro-rated based on the amount of months passed since the user was charged, based on the Website Monthly subscription fee. If the user created their account less than 3 months before calling to cancel the service, they are still bound by the 3-month commitment required of the Website Monthly membership and will be pro-rated all but 3 months of service and their account will be set to expire 3 months from its creation date.
Membership Credit and Switching Plans: When a member decides to switch their plan, they will receive a pro-rated credit from their previous account that will apply towards the cost of the new plan. In the event that a member switches to a more expensive plan, the credit will be applied towards the new cost and the member will be responsible for paying the difference. In the event that a member switches to a less expensive plan, the remaining credit will be applied to extend the expiration date for the new plan, according to the new plan's value. Monetary refunds are not issued under these circumstances, but a credit is applied towards the new plan that is being switched to.
Disable of Auto-Renewals: A member can only disable their auto-renewal on a Media Yearly and Website Yearly Membership. To disable auto-renewal on any monthly membership, customers must contact Customer Service after their 3-month minimum commitment has been met. If a Website Monthly or Website Yearly account has its auto-renewal disabled, the user's website will be suspended upon account expiration.
