Additionally, Members may accumulate items within My Inbox Cart for a maximum of one month (four/five weeks based on the said month) at which point a check-out of all items becomes mandatory. The Member may initiate self-check-outs at any time, therefore bypassing the mandatory monthly check-out so long as there is no period greater than four weeks between self-initiated check-outs. ALL ITEMS IN MY INBOX CART ARE COMMITTED PURCHASES AND CANNOT BE REMOVED. Acceptance to items from an inbox may be subject to a 10% re-stocking fee. It must be noted that at no time will any special order items be removed from My Inbox Cart; they must be purchased without exception.
Members agree to provide complete and accurate information upon the registration process and agree not to provide any information that is false, misleading or incorrect throughout the course of maintaining their profile on eXpertComics.com. Members are responsible for notifying eXpertComics of any registration information changes/updates which impact shipping and/or billing addresses. A Member’s email address is non-editable once registration is completed and serves as the Member's Username when logging in; any change to an email address must be requested directly to eXpertComics for corrections or updates.
If, at any time, eXpertComics has reason to believe that any of registration information is inaccurate (in whole or part), untrue, incomplete or otherwise falsified, eXpertComics reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and may close the account without notice. Additionally, eXpertComics reserves the right to refuse to grant a Member a specific username that may be misconstrued as another individual, or that may be illegal, protected by trademark or other proprietary copyright laws, is offensive or vulgar, may cause confusion to others, or any other instances as determined by eXpertComics discretion.

ACTIVATION OF PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES AND ADDITIONAL EXCLUSIVE FEATURES:
Two options are available to upgrade a Member's profile to a Subscriber account. Either a valid credit card is to be associated to a Member's profile or a PayPal™ deposit can be provided in activating the subscription service and/or any other premium service. An enrollment security deposit via PayPal™ may be required should the credit card option not be selected, no deposit is required if the credit card option is selected. Once a PayPal™ deposit has cleared, an administrator shall grant the Member access to the Subscription area of the site. An email shall be set to the Member from eXpertComics notifying them of the successful activation. This deposit shall be refunded to the user if: 1. the Member’s account is in good standing and the Subscription has been terminated by the user, 2) a valid credit card has been put on file which no longer would require the PayPal™ deposit. No deposit is required if a credit card is put on file upon enrollment to the Subscription service, however, eXpertComics reserves the right to process a non-refundable $0.55 verification charge to ensure that the credit card provided is authentic and that of the Member.
Payment for products inserted into My Inbox Cart by a Subscriber’s selections is due at the end of every month or, if self-initiated, are not to exceed 4 weeks in duration between payments. The eXpertComics Subscription pull-list service system shall process all inboxes for payments for all accounts that are automated or have not initiated self-check-outs in the previous four weeks. Deadline for payment of a processed inbox at the end of a monthly cycle is 7 days from the date of the email payment notice alert. eXpertComics does not allow payment for subscription inboxes to be conducted offline; all subscribers must be enrolled and have met the subscription service criteria, and therefore must make all payments through the web site without exception. Should further information be required on subscription services please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For subscriptions activated via use of a credit card, Members must provide eXpertComics with a valid credit card with accurate, matching personal information; which is mandatory for any part of the subscription activation process. Failure to comply may result in immediate termination of access to subscription services and discount purchasing rates. Subscription My Inbox Cart amounts vary and are entirely based on the Member’s selection of products and titles subscribed to. Any subscription reaching an amount above $400.00 prior to the end of the shipping cycle will automatically have the inbox closed until payment has been made. This is a mandatory security procedure. Payment that is not submitted within 7 days of an inbox being processed authorizes eXpertComics system to process payment for My Inbox Cart and select the shipping method on behalf of the Subscriber if not stipulated in shipping preferences. The order shall then be shipped within the shipping guidelines. Should payment be declined the account may be closed due to payment delinquency and turned over to collection. Any Member with a subscription My Inbox Cart processed by the system waives the right to claim a chargeback on a credit card transaction as per this Term of Service Agreement.
If a different credit card is required to replace an existing one, or if there is a change in the credit card placed on file and/or update to the expiration date, Members are responsible for maintaining this information current. Reports from credit card service provider Chase Paymentech indicating that a credit card utilized to maintain a subscription activation is nearing the expiry date, eXpertComics shall request that the information be updated within ten days, otherwise the subscription may be subject to suspension. Note that if the credit card is not updated prior to its expiration date all items in the My Inbox Cart shall be processed for payment prior to the credit card's expiry. Note that credit card numbers are not stored on eXpertComics’ servers, this information is held exclusively by online credit card service provider Chase Paymentech.
eXpertComics will apply an interest charge at an annual rate of 15% for any payment that is beyond 30 days past due. The full amount is also due immediately. Delinquent Member accounts may also be liable for supplemental fees, including reasonable attorney and collection fees that eXpertComics may incur if there is a collection process initiated on a Member's account. A Member also agrees that they will be billed for and will pay any outstanding monies for committed orders if there is a cancellation of the subscription service, or if the subscription service is terminated without having provided full payment all pre-ordered items. Payments for pre-ordered items cannot go beyond eight weeks for books; however this duration can be extended to 12-24 months for fine collectables and statues with extended lead-times. (Deposits on high-ticket items, or items with long lead-times may be requested prior to committing an order)
If billing discrepancy occurs eXpertComics must be contacted via email or in writing at eXpertComics, 15 boul. Montcalm Nord, CP 73048, Candiac, Quebec, J5R 5X3, Canada, within 30 days in which the said discrepancy appeared on a statement. If such a discrepancy is not brought to eXpertComicss' attention within 30 days, the Member waives the right to dispute the matter.
eXpertComics reserves the right to change the amount of fees or charges for premium services and/or subscriptions (currently there at no cost), and to alter the billing cycle. eXpertComics also reserves the right to change the types of services offered for specific premium service levels, providing notice of such changes to registered users via their designated primary email account and posted within the Subscription area of the website where such changes may occur. eXpertComics reserves the right to terminate any account, at any time for any reason, without notice.
