Terms of Use And Privacy Policy

Community Pass

Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

General

If you choose to use, visit, or view Community Pass’s website, social media site, mobile app, content, Subscription, or Pass (collectively, the “Services”), you will be agreeing to all of the terms and conditions in this Terms of Use between you and Benefits for Life, LLC (referred to herein as “Community Pass). We may add, change, or remove portions of these Terms of Use at any time.

It is your responsibility to review these Terms of Use prior to each use of the Services. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, you must not use the Services.

Pass Subscription

Advertisers on the Community Pass mobile app or website may from time to time offer discounts or other promotional benefits to holders of a Pass (“Subscribers”).

The creation of an account, and payment of the Subscription Fee, will activate your Pass. Subscribers are billed on a subscription basis (“Subscription”). The term of a Subscription is one month and renews automatically. You will be billed in advance on a recurring monthly basis at the then-current Subscription Fee. Subscription Fees are non-refundable. Passes are for the use of the individual Subscriber only, and cannot be transferred to or used by others.

Automatic Renewal Terms

If you become a Subscriber, you agree that Community Pass may submit charges to your chosen payment method on the same date of the month as the initial charge without further authorization from you. These charges will be submitted unless you, the Subscriber, provide us notice that you wish to terminate this authorization or to change your payment method prior to the automatic renewal date. By purchasing a Subscription, you agree and acknowledge that your subscription has an initial pre-payment feature for one month of a Pass and a recurring Subscription renewal fee at the then-current Subscription rate. You acknowledge and accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation, including, where applicable, any charges processed by Community Pass after the expiration date of your payment card or any charges that fail to be deposited to Community Pass due to insufficient funds. You will be notified of any Subscription fee increases within 30 days of such increase, via the email address you have provided on your account, and you accept and authorize Community Pass to charge the increased amount on the automatic renewal date unless you cancel your subscription before the renewal date.

Cancellation

Your Pass may be canceled on the mobile app or website, or by email to [email protected] Upon cancellation, no further charge will be made to your payment method. Community Pass may cancel a Pass, Subscription, advertisements, donations, or any part of the Community Pass program at any time and without advance notice.

Our Payment Processor

We use a third-party payment processor (the “Payment Processor”) to bill you through a payment account linked to your account. The processing of payments will be subject to the terms, conditions, and privacy policies of the Payment Processor, in addition to these Terms of Use. Our current Payment Processor is Authorize.net, and your payments are processed by Authorize.net in accordance with their policies. We don’t control and are not liable for the security or performance of the Payment Processor. You agree to pay us, through the Payment Processor, all charges at the prices then in effect for any purchase in accordance with the applicable payment terms. You agree to make payment using the payment method you provide with your account. We reserve the right to correct, or to instruct our Payment Processor to correct, any errors or mistakes, even if payment has already been requested or received.

Donations

At any time, a Subscriber may designate, via the website or app, a Community Organization, to which Community Pass may donate a portion of the Subscription Fee each month. Community Organizations are listed on Community Pass’s website and mobile app. Approval of Community Organizations and the amount and timing of donations is at Community Pass’s sole discretion, and approval of or donations to a Community Organization may be discontinued for any reason and without prior notice.

Account, Password, Security

If any of the Services requires you to open an account, you must provide us with current, complete, and accurate information as prompted by the applicable registration form. You may also be asked to choose a password and a user name. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account.

Community Pass may provide links to, and post advertisements and promotions from, companies that it approves from time to time. Your interactions and business dealings with any company are solely between you and that company. Community Pass is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred by you, or the alleged breach of any terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with any company. Community Pass does not dictate other companies’ marketing or advertising messages and makes no representations about the suitability of any service or products advertised, or the availability or validity of discounts or promotions.
