SHAREFAITH TERMS OF USE
Vers. 09012014

By becoming a Sharefaith member, you agree to abide by these Terms of Use. The Terms are updated from time to time so please check back for changes that may affect you. 

1. Basic Definitions
The Sharefaith website ("Site") is a subscription service that provides downloadable digital media and SharefaithKids Sunday School lesson curriculum, ("Content") and website-based software ("Tools"), for use by its paid subscribers ("Members"). Sharefaith Presenter is a worship software plugin created for PowerPoint enabling churches to easily add text over any video or video loop. It also combines integrated access to SongSelect, the largest worship lyric database as well as integrated access to media from Sharefaith. The software can function without these features, though a user has to have an active Sharefaith membership and CCLI SongSelect membership to use the integrated features. These features are not included with Sharefaith Presenter. Sharefaith Presenter is a product and copyright of Sharefaith.com. Sharefaith Presenter only works with Windows PowerPoint 2010 and and future Windows versions of PowerPoint. Sharefaith Presenter has been tested to work on XP, VISTA, WINDOWS 7/8. The Site, Content, and Sharefaith Presenter plugin are the wholly-owned, copyrighted property of Sharefaith Inc. ("Company"), and are subject to U.S. and international copyright protection laws. Sharefaith is a trademark of Sharefaith, Inc.

2. Requirement to Be in Good Standing
Usage rights ("Rights") are granted to Members who are in good standing. To be in good standing, one must:
a. Be a past or present account holder with a valid username and password at Sharefaith.
b. Not be using the Content or Sharefaith Presenter plugin for any illegal or banned purpose.
c. Not be in violation of these Terms of Use.

The Company may revoke privileges to anyone not meeting these requirements or to anyone it believes is abusing the Site, as well as seek legal remedies necessary to protect its copyrights and intellectual property.

3. AUTOMATIC RENEWAL POLICY
Sharefaith offers eight (8) subscription plans, each with their own subscription period. The Media Monthly, SharefaithKids Monthly, Website Monthly, and Complete Monthly plans have a 30-day subscription period, while the Media Yearly, SharefaithKids Yearly, Website Yearly, and Complete Yearly Plans all 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 ACCOUNT 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. Our Media Monthly, SharefaithKids Monthly, Website Monthly, and Complete Monthly plans all require a 3-month minimum membership period upon original registration before cancellation can take place. See cancellation and refund policies for specific monthly memberships in Section 4 of our Terms of Use for further details.

Sharefaith Presenter is included with membership. Every new release will be offered at a set price with an exclusive upgrade price for licensed Sharefaith Presenter Members. The license enables a Sharefaith Presenter owner to install the plugin on a select amount of computers as indicated by the license. Installing the plugin on more computers than the license allows is in violation with the terms of use and will revoke your Sharefaith Presenter plugin privileges. You do not have to be a Sharefaith account holder to use Sharefaith Presenter.

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 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 ACCOUNT control panel. Simply cancel by clicking on the CANCEL BUTTON on the MY ACCOUNT page. When cancelled, your free trial will not roll over and no billing will occur.

Free Trial Refund Policy:
In order to engage in a 7-day free trial, every member is provided with clear expectations and instructions regarding the length and workings of the 7-Day Free Trial. When the user agrees to the Terms of Use and starts the free trial period, they do so in good faith, agreeing to the terms of use.

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, 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 that has not been changed to a plan type that was introduced thereafter. 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. Full refunds are not available for new accounts. If it has been longer than 10 days since the account renewed, 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 comparable monthly plan's 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 of the comparable 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: We provide a free, working demo of our website creation service that can be tried before purchasing a full membership.

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 of the comparable 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.

Complete Yearly Memberships: We provide free demos for each of our products and services offered through Sharefaith.com so that they can be tried before purchasing full membership.

Sharefaith Presenter is not billed separately for usage, unless purchasing additional installation licenses. Additional installation licenses are non-refundable upon purchase.

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.

To disable Automatic Renewal:
a. Self-disable by logging in, going to My Account > Account Info, then click the link to "Disable Auto Renewal"
b. If unable to self-disable, please submit a ticket here to contact Customer Service: http://support.sharefaith.com
