Accessing the Website and Account Security
We reserve the right to withdraw or amend this Website, and any service or material we provide on the Website, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Website is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts of the Website, or the entire Website, to users, including registered users.
If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to this Website or portions of it using your user name, password or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to, or use of, your user name or password or any other breach of security.
Products. The products consist of role-playing stories aimed primarily at an audience of children. The game consists mainly of becoming the central character of an interactive adventure, by exchanges of personalized correspondences with a professional correspondent hired by us. The story will immerse the child in a universe that will stimulate his or her desire to read, write, and engage in creative activities. The various stories are available to different age groups, for children as young a five (5) years old. The premise of each story, or game, is described on the Website.
Subscriptions. The products are offered through this Website as a one-time or multi-period subscription service (the “Subscription“) to a game or story aimed primarily at children. The process to order a Subscription via the Website:
• Choose a Subscription plan
• Provide delivery details and billing data
• Create your client account
• Confirm your order and an order summary is generated
• Online payment
• Select a story and finalize the personalization of the story
An order confirmation will be sent to the email you provided. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of the email address and other information that you provide.
You may also choose to obtain an account activation code, that you can pass on to a person of your choice to complete the registration process.
Once a Subscription is confirmed and you will be able to activate a story by answering some initial customization questions. We will send a first letter to the child receiving the Subscription, who will read and respond to it. Receiving the child’s response, either by mail or the authorized adult’s email, will trigger the next mail for the duration of the chosen Subscription. The correspondence between the child and our writers through the characters of the story will take shape and will be personalized according to the child’s answers.
You may ask for the Subscription to end by logging onto your account and requesting that the subscription ends by clicking on “My Subscriptions” and “Suspend my subscription”, or by emailing us.
Rates. Subscriptions are provided at the prices in effect on the day of order and communicated to you prior to finalizing your order. Prices are expressed in U.S. dollars, excluding sales tax, if applicable, and shipping costs, which are shown on the order summary.
Payment. Payment is payable in full at the time of order using the secure payment method offered. However, for certain Subscription plans, you may spread payment over three months, with one-third of the total due each month. Failure to make any monthly payment will cause an automatic suspension of the Subscription, which Subscription will be terminated automatically after 15 days of non-payment with no further liability or obligation on the part of the Company. You authorize us to charge your payment method when any payment is due. We reserve the right to retry billing your payment method if such method is rejected or has expired. We may update your payment method with information provided by the applicable payment service provider and you authorize us to continue to charge amounts due to the updated payment method.
Automatic Renewal. Certain Subscription plans will include an automatic renewal at the end of the term. You will be notified at least one (1) month before the end of the term and may choose to opt-out of such automatic renewal. In addition, you may log into your client account and stop the automatic renewal option.
Delivery. You may indicate a preferred date to start the Subscription and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet that date, but there can be no guarantee that such date will be possible. If no date is specified, we usually mail the first story to the recipient within 10 business days of your order and the completion of any information needed to personalize the story for the recipient. Receipt is generally around 21 days from shipment, subject to delays outside of our control such as strikes, delays in mail or logistics, weather delays, and all types of force majeure events. If we do not mail the story within 30 days of your order, we will notify you by email and you may choose to terminate the order and receive a refund of the price paid (excluding taxes).
Defective or Damaged Products. If for any reason, a product is delivered and found to be defective or damaged, you must immediately contact us and provide us information concerning the defect or damage (including photos of the product) and other information as we may reasonably request. We may refund or replace the product in our sole discretion. No products may be returned without our prior written authorization.
