TERMS AND CONDITIONS
This Terms and Conditions agreement is entered into by and between You and MemberVault, LLC (hereafter, “MemberVault”, “Website”, “Site”, “Company”, “We”, “Our”, “Us”).
1. AGREEMENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These Terms and Conditions constitute a legally binding agreement between You and MemberVault concerning your access to and use of the MemberVault.co and MemberVault platform, as well as any other application, media channel, or tool related to MemberVault and its business purpose.
You understand, acknowledge, and accept that by accessing this Website, you are bound by all of these Terms and Conditions presented to you in this very agreement. By using our Website or by clicking to accept or agree to the Terms and Conditions when and if this option is made expressly available to you, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms and Conditions.
2. GENERAL TERMS
MemberVault is a SAAS platform. This means that the platform’s product is the actual product itself. In order for you, as the customer or website visitor, to be able to access and use the features of our SAAS platform, you will be required to create or register an “Account” through the MemberVault.co website. Upon registering or creating an account, you will have an active account that you can start using to build your own information platform such as online courses, one-on-one coaching and consulting sessions, group coaching and consulting sessions, challenges, memberships, and more. The data and information that you will create within your MemberVault account belongs to you. However, you have no rights to other parts of the platform such as the platform code, or the fundamental program base. You are not permitted to use any files that you know are corrupt that would potentially pose a risk to the entire MemberVault platform.
You acknowledge, agree, and accept that as a SAAS platform, any technical processing, transmission and transfer of the service, including things like your content, can be transferred unencrypted or shared with over various networks and, as well as the data or content may be changed in order to conform to the technical requirements of the platform itself to avoid any errors.
3. MEMBERVAULT ACCOUNT OPTIONS
When creating or registering an account on MemberVault.co, you would have noticed that MemberVault offers different account plans. You, as the consumer or customer, have the option to choose a FOREVER FREE account that is limited to hundred (100) users. You are free to begin a paid plan immediately by either choosing the BASE ACCOUNT, PRO ACCOUNT or the PRO+ ACCOUNT. The BASE ACCOUNT is capped at one thousand (1000) users, while the PRO Account is capped at twenty-five thousand (25,000) users. And the PRO+ ACCOUNT is capped at 250,000. These are month to month subscription plans. MemberVault used to have an annual payment option for its customers; however, this is not the case anymore. We still honor the previous annual plans who purchased, but an annual billing option is not available for new accounts. The prices are subject to change at MemberVault’s sole and exclusive discretion and decision.
MemberVault currently also offers two (2) lifetime plan accounts: LIFETIME LITE and LIFETIME PRO. These lifetimes plans are capped at ten thousand (10,000) users and two hundred fifty thousand (250,000) users, respectively. Only the FREE, BASE, AND PRO monthly plans are available on MemberVault.co website in the pricing section. The PRO+, LIFETIME LITE and LIFETIME PRO accounts are available in member’s account under the ‘Account Plans’ option in their admin menu.
4. ACCOUNT PAYMENTS AND TERMS
We offer two main types of accounts-free and paid. Our free account is FOREVER FREE, but it has a 100 user capacity. Our paid plans start at various prices and they too have user capacities.
If a customer is on one of the paid plans, then will be billed every thirty (30) days. The customer can cancel or downgrade their account at any time. If they cancel midway through their payment cycle their subscription is honoured until the end of the cycle and then cancelled to avoid rebilling. When a paid subscription is cancelled, the member’s MV account is downgraded back to the FOREVER FREE PLAN at the time their billing cycle ends.
If that member has more than 100 people within their account, then their account will be noted as ‘overlimit’. In this case MemberVault will notify the member both my email and by including a notification within their account that tells the member they have a seven (7) day grace period to take action before the account is locked and their account people lose access to their content or courses. Taking action on an account means either reducing the list to hundred (100) or less people, or re-upgrading to a paid subscription to have more room for people.
If the member of a cancelled account does not take action during the 7-day grace period, then MemberVault will set their products as “inactive” status until action is taken. When the products are in an “inactive” state, the users will not be able to access those products any longer, even if they had access previously.
Aside from the month to month subscription to our platform, there is also the option to purchase one of the lifetime plans: LIFETIME LITE or LIFETIME PRO. Lifetime account licenses are considered final sale and are not subject to any refunds and are non-transferable. This applies to both payments made in full and to payment plans. Lifetime Licenses are for the lifetime of the platform.
*Please note that Lifetime Members who are deemed as repeat offenders of copyright infringement as outlined in our Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Policy will not be entitled to a refund should their account be closed down due to infringement.
5. CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS AND CHARGES
The payments for MemberVault accounts are handled via Samcart if the member has either a BASE, PRO or PRO+ subscriptions. Also all the former annual plans (that are no longer available) are also handled via Samcart. The payment gateways that MemberVault uses on Samcart are PayPal and Stripe.
The accounts that have Lifetime Licenses (regardless whether they paid in full or with payment plans) are not created or paid for inside Samcart. For the LIFETIME accounts MemberVault uses its own checkout cart option and utilizes Stripe and PayPal for the payment gateways.
In the event that a payment made by the member to MemberVault fails (for whatever reason), then Samcart, Stripe and PayPal re-attempt the payment and three (3) other additional times. Therefore, all in all, both payment gateways try to capture the payment for a total of four (4) times. Each time the payment fails, Samcart, Stripe and PayPal send notification email to the member letting them know that their payment did not go through.
If all four (4) attempts to collect payment by the processors fail, the member’s MemberVault subscription is automatically cancelled within the payment processor itself. Thereafter, MemberVault manually downgrades the member’s account to the FOREVER FREE plan. The ‘overlimit’ process would apply if they have more than 100 people in their account.
MemberVault does monitor the failed payments, and when there is a third failed payment, someone from MemberVault personally reaches out to the member to see if the situation can be rectified.
If the payment plans on the LIFETIME accounts fail or go unpaid, then MemberVault will work with the member to resolve the payment issue and if necessary, should their original payment plan be cancelled due to failed attempts, have them create a new payment plan and provide them with a coupon code to discount the new plan by the dollar ($) amount already collected.
