SUBSCRIBING TO FILMPAC UNLIMITED OR TRIAL SERVICES.

By subscribing to FILMPAC UNLIMITED (including FILMPAC UNLIMITED Trial Services) on filmpac.com, you are entering into two separate, but related, legally binding agreements with FILMPAC: (a) The Subscriber Agreement, a legally binding agreement that governs your ANNUAL (or trial) subscription to FILMPAC UNLIMITED and (b) the FILMPAC STOCK FOOTAGE LICENSE AGREEMENT which governs your use of each CLIP accessible within your FILMPAC UNLIMITED subscription (collectively the “Agreements”). Your action of entering into these agreements, i.e. clicking to accept the terms, constitutes your electronic signature and affirmative consent to enter into these Agreements with FILMPAC electronically. A full version of the SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT is below, and the FIMPAC STOCK FOOTAGE LICENSE AGREEMENT is available HERE. Read the terms of BOTH of these Agreements carefully BEFORE purchasing and print a copy to retain for your records. If you do not agree to the terms of BOTH of these Agreements, do not purchase a subscription to FILMPAC UNLIMITED (including FILMPAC UNLIMITED Trial Services).

SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT

This SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT (“Agreement”) governs any and all use of the Website and Services made available to Subscriber by FILMPAC, LLC (“FILMPAC,” “We,” “Us,” or “Our”).

SECTION 2.        SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

2.1 Offer Details; Ordering.

All payments are non-refundable, non-cancelable and non-creditable except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or when required by law.  

(b) Subscription Services are billed pursuant to the Billing Cycle identified on the Order Confirmation, e.g. single annual upfront payment or 12 monthly payments, paid in advance).

All sums not paid by the due date shall bear interest from the due date until paid at the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permitted by law, whichever is lower.

(b) We often use a third party not affiliated with FILMPAC to process payments for Subscription Services (“Third Party Processor”).  You agree that the Third Party Processor is solely responsible for controlling, handling, processing or otherwise fulfilling purchases processed through their system.  When using such Third Party Processor you will be subject to their terms of service and privacy policy.

2.3 Subscription Terms and Renewals.  Your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with this Agreement.  The initial subscription period for any specific Subscription Service is identified on the Order Confirmation provided by FILMPAC at the time of initial purchase (“Initial Subscription Term”).  Unless cancelled as provided in Section 2.4, all Subscription Services will automatically renew for additional subscription periods of equal length to the initial Subscription Term (each a “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Subscription Term, the “Subscription Term”).  Pricing for each Renewal Term will be at the price set forth in FILMPAC’S then current Offer Details, and all other terms and conditions set forth in such Offer Details shall also apply. Subscriber agrees that FILMPAC may bill their credit card for each Renewal Term prior to expiration, or on the anniversary of, the initial Subscription Term or then-current Renewal Term.  Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that it is the responsibility of Subscriber to review the Offer Details displayed on the Website for pricing and other changes.
