Terms of Service

By signing up for or using the Service, you agree to the Terms.

1. Credit Bundles

1.1. Bundle Options - As part of a discount offering, savings offering or promotion, you may purchase or we may issue you credits redeemable for content on www.praisecharts.com ("Credits"). Credits may only be redeemed on praisecharts.com, and are non-transferable. All Credits are valid for a limited time (purchased Credits are valid for twelve (12) months unless cancelled; promotional Credits are valid for 30 days.) Credits expire immediately upon the cancellation or termination of your Bundle unless used prior to cancellation or termination.

1.2. Payment terms - The fees for Credit Bundles may change at any time. Fees may be subject to tax.

1.3. Restrictions on use - You cannot use Gold Credits to purchase orchestrations.  With your Gold Credits you can purchase Lead Sheets and Audio Tracks (etc.), but you will have to use a standard payment method to purchase an orchestration. Credits are used as First-In-First-Out, with refunded credits always being the first used.

1.4. Refunds and Returns - If you purchased a Bundle of Credits, and have since decided you do not need or want all of this great music from PraiseCharts, we do offer a refund option with the following condition: you must pay full price for any charts that you had downloaded with your credits. Your refund will be calculated to be the purchase price of the bundle less the full retail value of the products purchased with the spent credits. If you have downloaded a chart and prior to public performance decide the song does not meet your needs, we will be glad to refund your purchase. Refunded credits are placed back in your Credit Summary and are the first used as you continue to spend your credits.

1.5. Termination of Credits - Credit Bundles expire 12 months from the purchase of that bundle. Approximately one (1) month before your credits are set to expire, we send out credit expiration reminder emails. As long as you renew with a new Credit Bundle or Subscription before the current bundle expires, your current credits will roll over for an additional six (6) months. Termination of Credit Bundles does not terminate your access to purchased charts.

2. Credit Subscriptions

2.1. Subscription Options - As part of discount savings, you may purchase or we may issue you credits redeemable for content on www.praisecharts.com ("Credits"). Credits may only be redeemed on praisecharts.com, and are non-transferable. All Credits are valid for a limited time (purchased Credits are valid for twelve (12) months unless cancelled/terminated; promotional Credits are valid for 30 days.) Credits expire thirty (30) days (or their set expiry date, if less) after the cancellation or termination of your Subscription, unless used prior to cancellation or termination.

2.2. Payment terms - Your subscription involves a recurring payment of a fee, and unless you cancel your subscription one (1) day before your billing date in your online account OR notify us three (3) days before your billing date that you want to cancel or do not want to automatically renew your subscription, you understand it will automatically continue and you authorize us, without notice to you (unless required by applicable law), to collect the then-applicable fees and any taxes, using the payment type selected for the subscription. We are not responsible or liable for ensuring that your credit card is valid and unexpired, though we will do our best to notify you if such is the case. We are not responsible or liable if your credits expire due to us not being able to complete the recurring charge for your subscription. If the primary payment method we have on file for you is declined for payment of your Subscription fees, we may cancel your subscription, unless you provide us with a new credit card. If you provide us with a new credit card and are successfully charged before your subscription is cancelled, your next subscription charge will be based on the original renewal date and not the date of the successful charge.

2.3. Restrictions on use - You cannot use Gold Credits to purchase orchestrations.  With your Gold Credits you can purchase Lead Sheets and Audio Tracks (etc.), but you will have to use a standard payment method to purchase an orchestration. Credits are used as First-In-First-Out, with refunded credits always being the first used. Credits cannot be extended or rolled over.

2.4. Refunds and Returns - Members who purchase monthly auto-renewing subscriptions have 5 days after each billing cycle to cancel and receive a refund. The refund will be calculated as 1) if no credits have been used from the new month's Credit set, that current month's full charge will be refunded and the correlating Credit set will be removed; 2) if credits have been used from the new month's Credit set, that current month's charge will be refunded less the full retail value of the products purchased with the spent credits. In either case, the 30 day expiration on unused, unexpired credits will be calculated from one day before the billing date (no credits will be extended past their set expiry date). If you have downloaded a chart and prior to public performance decide the song does not meet your needs, we will be glad to refund your purchase. Refunded credits are placed back in your Credit Summary and are the first used as you continue to spend your credits.

2.5. Termination of Subscription - You may cancel your subscription at any time by visiting your Subscriptions page. Upon cancellation by you or termination by non-payment, all credits are set to expire thirty (30) days from the day of cancellation/termination (or their set expiry date, if less). You may reactivate your subscription within thirty (30) days after the initial cancellation/termination by making up the missed billing cycle. Upon successful completion of the missed payment, your original subscription schedule will resume and any unused, unexpired credits will be restored with their original expiry date. Cancellation and reactivation can be managed in your Subscriptions.

3. Credit Top-Ups

3.1. Top-Up Options - Top-Up Credits are available to monthly subscription customers only, at the same increment level as their current subscription.

3.2. Payment terms - Top-Up Credits are a one time purchase using the payment method of your choice. The cost of Credit Top-Ups may change at any time. Fees may be subject to tax.

3.3. Restrictions on use - Top-Up Credits spending order occurs after any prior months and current month's credits, and before the month following the purchase of the Top-Up credits. You cannot use Gold Top-Up Credits to purchase orchestrations. Credits are used as First-In-First-Out, with refunded credits always being the first used. Top-Up Credits cannot be extended or rolled over.

3.4. Refunds and Returns - Credit Top-Up packages may be refunded within 30 days providing the all the credits in the package are unused (an 'unopened' Top-Up) and providing the subscription is active and in good standing. Refunds are not available if the subscription has been cancelled (even if it is in the 30 day expiry period) or if it is in an unpaid state. If you have downloaded a chart and prior to public performance decide the song does not meet your needs, we will be glad to refund your purchase. Refunded credits are placed back in your Credit Summary and are the first used as you continue to spend your credits. (Note that a Top-Up package that has spent credits which have been refunded back does not constitute an 'unopened' package.)

3.5. Termination of Top-Ups - If you cancel your subscription or your subscription is terminated for non-payment (eg expired credit card), your Top-Up Credits will expire after 30 days (or their set expiry date, if less).

4. General Terms

4.1 Agreement Changes - We may, in our discretion, change the Terms and any and all elements of them and any aspect of the Service, without notice to you. If any change to the Terms is found invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that change is severable and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining changes and the remainder of the Terms. Your continued use of the Service after we change the Terms constitutes your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to any changes, you must not use the Service and must cancel your Credits and/or Subscription.

4.2 Modification and Interruption - We reserve the right to change, modify, or remove the contents of the Site at any time or for any reason at our sole discretion without notice. However, we have no obligation to update any information on our Site (though it is always with the purpose to make it better for you!). We also reserve the right to modify or discontinue all or part of the Site without notice at any time. We will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, price change, suspension, or discontinuance of the Site in whole or part.

If we do so, we will give you a prorated refund based on the value remaining in your account unless we terminate your membership for conduct that we determine, in our discretion, violates the Terms, violates any applicable law, involves fraud or misuse of the Service, or is harmful to our interests or another user. Our failure to in sist upon or enforce your strict compliance with the Terms will not constitute a waiver of any of our rights.

4.4 Disputes - In the event of a dispute under this Agreement, the parties may choose to mediate using the services of a pastoral or Christian mediator. In the event the parties do not mediate or mediation is unsuccessful or unavailable, the parties agree to submit their dispute to final and binding arbitration before an arbitrator in accordance with the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation as established by the Institute for Christian Conciliation (a division of Peacemaker Ministries). Any arbitration hearings will be held in Langley, BC, Canada. Judgment upon any award rendered in arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
