1. Who is Sharefaith?
Sharefaith Inc, is a Christian based, Bible-believing, ministry-focused technology company serving Christian churches and ministries around the world. We provide an all-in-one ministry offering consisting of Church Apps, a Sunday School Curriculum, Websites & Hosting, Media, Graphics, Video and Worship Presentation Software.

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.

5. Free Trial:

Sharefaith provides a safe, risk-free 7-day trial to give a user access to download any of our pre-selected Free Trial Only products. A user can cancel at any time during the 7-Day Trial period or subscribe for a full membership.

a. 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. If you do not cancel your free trial by 11:59pm of the seventh day, your free trial will roll over into a Media Monthly membership with a three-month minimum commitment. (See 4a.)

b. Cancelling a Free Trial:
You can cancel a free trial at any time during the 7 days. Members are notified throughout their trial period through daily emails, a permanent countdown timer on each page and on their MY ACCOUNT control panel. Simply cancel by clicking on the red CANCEL FREE TRIAL button on the MY ACCOUNT page. When canceled, your free trial will not roll over and no billing will occur.

c. Refund of Free Trial membership roll over:
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.

With no account activity or 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 required to honor their 3-month minimum subscription agreement to the Media Monthly membership plan and can cancel thereafter. (see 4a.)


6. Automatic Renewal Policy:

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 a seven (7) day email notification sent in advance of renewals. Upon renewal, all customers will receive an email receipt.

Disable of Auto-Renewals:
A member can only disable their auto-renewal on a 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

7. Membership Cancellations and Refunds:

a. Full Memberships: Full membership or a 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.

b. 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 no account activity or downloads have taken place on the account in question. After 10 days, the membership will be canceled and no refund will be issued.

c. All Other Yearly Memberships:

d. If it has been longer than ten (10) days since the account has been charged for membership:

  • • The membership will be canceled 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.

e.*Sharefaith Kids addendum:

  • • If a Sharefaith Kids user is shown to have downloaded more than 2 PDF color-in activities or have shown to have created additional teacher accounts or viewed multiple slideshows and videos, there will be no refund given.

  • • 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 any Monthly Membership.

g. Sharefaith Presenter:
A free license to Sharefaith Presenter is included with a membership to any of our plans. Sharefaith Presenter is not billed separately for usage, unless purchasing additional licenses. Additional licenses are non-refundable.


8. 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.
