The Terms & Conditions and Statement of Privacy have been modified as of 7/21/2019
By subscribing to StarTalk All-Access, or StarTalk+ on Patreon (the “Service”), or visiting StarTalk Radio(s) (the “Site”), you agree to the following terms and conditions of use. The Service and Site shall be referred to, collectively, herein as the “Material”. This is a contract (the “Agreement”) in electronic form between you (“you,” “your,” and “yourself”) and Curved Light Productions, LLC. and its successors, subsidiaries, and affiliates (“Curved Light Productions,” “we,” “us,” and “our”). All references to Curved Light Productions shall include, where appropriate, its employees, officers, directors, investors, agents, consultants, assignees, affiliates, partners, contractors, attorneys, accountants, advertisers, and any and all other individuals and organizations providing services on behalf of Curved Light Productions.
PLEASE READ THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE OR SERVICE. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SITE OR THE SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT AND ALL MODIFICATIONS HERETO. PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITE OR THE SERVICE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS AGREEMENT.
The Service consists of audio and/or video episodes (“Episodes”) of StarTalk Radio and, potentially, other programs. We reserve the right to determine, in our sole discretion, the number, length, frequency, and medium (audio and/or video) of Episodes produced in connection with the Service.
In order to become a Service subscriber, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age and complete the registration process by providing us with complete and accurate information as requested in our online registration form. After you have fully completed the registration form, you will then choose a member name and a password. The combination of the e-mail address and member name you enter at registration form a unique identifier for your account. You agree that Curved Light Productions has the right to send email to the email address we have on file for your membership account and you consent to receive this email.
By subscribing to the Service, you may listen or view the Service on only one device at a time. You should not provide your username and password to anyone, and you have the obligation to protect your username and password from unauthorized use. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account. We are not liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge.
Your subscription may automatically renew under this Agreement. Your subscription will continue for the length of the initial term you select on your plan and at the end of your prepaid subscription, it will automatically renew for additional prepaid periods of the same length unless you choose to cancel prior to that renewal. Your account will automatically be charged at the rates in effect at the time of renewal. Our fees are subject to change without notice.
Curved Light Productions may, in its sole discretion, make available free or paid trial offers. Upon expiration of the trial period, you may automatically be enrolled as a Service subscriber at the rates then in effect if you have provided us with valid payment information. You must cancel your subscription prior to the end of the trial offer to avoid charges to your payment method. Trial offers are limited to one per household.
You understand that Curved Light Productions is not obligated to provide you with access to any particular number of archived Episodes by subscribing to the Service. Different membership levels (i.e., promotional, monthly, yearly, etc.) may or may not have access to a different number of archived Episodes and there may be limitations on the number of times an Episode may be downloaded per each account. For example, a trial or monthly subscriber may only have access to a limited number of archived Episodes. Upon the cancellation of your subscription, all access to archived Episodes will be terminated.
The Material is for your personal and non-commercial use only. You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any information, software, or products obtained from the Material without our prior written consent. Your membership and the Material may not be assigned or transferred to any other person or entity, nor may you provide any other person or entity with access to your membership, either directly or indirectly.
Your access to the Material may be unavailable or interrupted from time to time for a variety of reasons, many of which we cannot control. We are not responsible for any interruptions of your access to the Material.
Curved Light Productions reserves the right to refuse or revoke service to you or any user at any time.
You may cancel your StarTalk All-Access service subscription at any time by clicking here. Once the cancellation is successful, you will receive a confirmation email for your records. Billing is recurrent, so should you wish to do so you should cancel your membership at least 72 hours before it renews. If you do not cancel your membership at least 72 hours prior to the end of the then current membership period, your membership shall continue until the end of the next membership period following the receipt of the notice of termination. Subscription fees are nonrefundable and no refunds will be made for unused portions of subscriptions.
If Curved Light Productions ceases to permanently operate the Service, Curved Light Productions shall refund the unused portion of the Service subscription fee on a 30-day month (for monthly or biannual subscribers) or 52-week year (for yearly subscribers) pro-rata basis within ninety (90) days of such termination.
