Terms of Service

Welcome to SendSlices. By using the services on the SendSlices website (the "website"), you are agreeing to the following terms with SendSlices Inc. ("SendSlices").

Before you may become a user of SendSlices, you must read and accept all of the terms and conditions in this document ("Agreement") and the Privacy Policy. The agreement that applies on our domains is always the agreement that appears in the footer of the website.

This Agreement is effective on July 3, 2011, for all users.

While using the website, you will not:

  • violate any laws, third party rights, or our policies;
  • use the website if you are not able to form legally binding contracts, are under the age of 18, or are temporarily or indefinitely suspended from our website;
  • circumvent or manipulate our pricing, our billing process, or any payment owed to SendSlices
  • provide false, inaccurate, misleading, defamatory, or libelous information (including personal information);
  • transfer your account to another party, or let another party use your account, without our consent;
  • distribute or post spam, chain letters, or pyramid schemes;
  • distribute any other technologies that may harm SendSlices, or the interests or property of SendSlices users;
  • copy, modify, or distribute content from the website's copyrights and trademarks; or
  • harvest or otherwise collect information about users, including email addresses, without their consent.
  • We asks that you report problems, offensive messages, and policy violations to us.
  • Without limiting other remedies, we may limit, suspend, or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to the website, delay or remove orders, and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the website if we think that they are creating problems, possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently
  • with the letter or spirit of our policies. We also reserve the right to cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time.

Products and Fees

We are a service. When you purchase a service from us, we will give you a detailed electronic bill for the total, which will be charged to your credit card (or PayPal) prior to completion. In cases where a bill needs to be modified -- in cases including, but not limited to, backorders, product availability issues, and pricing changes -- we will update the bill and require you to review those changes before we proceed with the order.

Sending times are estimates only. They are guidelines provided by our email and phone companies, but the total time for an order to process is subject to the sender and receiver of a gift code responding promptly to emails. Once an email and/or text message (SMS) gift code has been successfully sent, responsibility for the purchase are transferred to the buyer.

Buyer Beware

When sending a gift by email, we cannot guarantee the identity of the individual who receives or responds to that email. Nor can we verify the correctness of mobile numbers entered. It is up to the sender to enter the email address correctly when sending a gift, and to verify that the email we send to that address is only accessible by the intended recipient. If the sender or recipient provides the wrong email address, or if the code or email is stolen or intercepted en route to the intended party we do not take responsibility. We do not provide exchanges or refunds once a code has successfully been sent. If one or more of your emails are returned to us, we will not resend it. We reserve the right to donate, dispose, or resell returned goods to defray the losses we incur from these situations. We will not compensate you for the cost of the item or any associated fees including taxes, SMS changes and handling.

Unless otherwise stated, all currency amounts are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with website at the time of order. If your payment method fails, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. (This includes charging other payment methods on file with us, and retaining collection agencies and legal counsel.)

Content License

When you give us content, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights (but no other rights) you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future.

Liability

You will not hold SendSlices responsible for other users' actions or inactions, including things they send in messages or as gifts. You acknowledge that we are not a traditional retailer. When sending a gift by email, we cannot guarantee the identity of the individual who receives or responds to that email. Nor can we verify the correctness of mobile numbers entered. We have no control over and do not guarantee the the truth or accuracy of information provided from one customer to another, including any customer's identity or intentions.

The customer agrees to become the item's lawful owner once the product has shipped -- not at delivery. We will make our best effort to complete the transaction to the customer's satisfaction; however, we cannot guarantee delivery to the intended party because of a number of risks and unknowns that are beyond our control, including whether any or all of the information we have been provided is correct. Once we ship a product, it is the customer's property and responsibility.

We have a great team of technologists, but we cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our services, and operation of the website may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted, we exclude all implied warranties, terms and conditions. We are not liable for any loss of money, goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of our website. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Regardless of the previous paragraph, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or to any third party is limited to the greater of (a) the total amount you purchased from us in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to the liability, and (b) $100.

Release

If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
