CONDITIONS OF SALE

 

The TXT-BOOK service is executed through the mobile application and/or the website iPhone Service Form. TXT-BOOK delivers its final product in the form of a pdf file. iPhone orders using the online web form can be expected to be delivered via e-mail in 1-3 business days. TXT-BOOK offers a printing and binding service, but it is not a publishing service, nor does it convert the TXT-BOOK file into a physical form unless the user decides to order a printed and bound version as a secondary step.  TXT-BOOK is not responsible for PDF incompatibilities due to software versions.  Any publishing, printing, binding or other conversion services rendered after delivery of the pdf file are not included in the initial purchase of the mobile application or iPhone Form and are done so with the sole discretion, liability and with total cost incurred by the user.  Once the app purchase has been made, use of the TXT-BOOK service is unlimited. TXT-BOOK is not responsible for TXT-BOOKs that are sent to incorrect e-mail addresses or any result, consequence, action, event physical, emotional or verbal or libel that results from the delivery or view of a TXT-BOOK by a recipient, an unintended recipient, or any person with access to the e-mail account. 

 

RETURNS & REFUNDS

 

Since TXT-BOOKs are a custom/digital product, we cannot offer returns or refunds. We will attempt to resolve any issues with your order to the best of our ability. For select iPhone Service orders that are created using data that was incorrectly entered or submitted by the customer, TXT-BOOK will offer options that will allow customers to re-order their TXT-BOOK using new and/or corrected data. There may be additional fees to correct such data or to make changes once the order is submitted and processed. A maximum discount of 50% will offered if an encrypted iPhone backup is uploaded. TXT-BOOK is not a resource to attempt to un-encrypt backups. Please be mindful when uploading these files. No refund or credit is given under any circumstances for the TXT-BOOK application or any expenses incurred relating to the TXT-BOOK product for which the user elects, including printing, binding or otherwise. 

 

DISPUTES

 

You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your credit card statement, if you dispute any of our charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived. Such notification shall be sent to the following address: TXT-BOOK Customer Service, 234 Thompson Street, #16, New York, NY 10012, or via email at orders@TXT-BOOK.com. If any dispute is made in an attempt to circumvent our Return Policy, TXT-BOOK may take action to recover any lost revenue or incurred fees.

 

TITLE AND RISK OF LOSS

 

All products made through the Service are made pursuant to the entry of the correct e-mail address provided by user in the application.  TXT-BOOK is not responsible if the recipient’s e-mail service bounces their e-mail or if the recipient’s e-mail service deletes, spams or blocks the e-mail.

The Service includes certain services that are available via a mobile device, including (i) the ability to upload content to the Service via a mobile device, (ii) the ability to access certain features through an application downloaded and installed on a mobile device (collectively, the “Mobile Services”).

CHILDREN UNDER AGE 13

 

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) defines personal information as "individually identifiable information," including things like a first and last name, a street address, an email address, or a telephone number. COPPA places requirements on websites that collect such information from children. You must be at least 13 years or older to register and use the Service. If you are under the age of 13, you must use an account created by a parent or guardian, and you must have the explicit permission of a parent or guardian to use the Service.

We recommend that minors over the age of 13 ask their parents before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the internet.

 

SHARING YOUR INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES

 

We do not sell your Personal Information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your Personal Information with third parties only in limited circumstances. We comply with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 and intend to do business only with companies that also comply. We will not sell your Personal Information.

We may provide collected information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about TXT-BOOK or the Service, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to print the books that you order, or to provide search results or links. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your Personal Information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any Personal Information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to TXT-BOOK-specified purposes. If we provide any of the information collected from you with a third party, their use of that information will be governed by their privacy policy.

For example: when you purchase TXT-BOOK app or use any third-party publishing service available on TXT-BOOK.com, your billing information is transmitted to a third-party credit card processor and your shipping information is transmitted to third-party printer to be printed, bound and shipped to you.

We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas, law enforcement investigations, or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We also may release information to protect our rights, property, or other interests, including those of our customers or other third parties or to prevent illegal activities or violations of the TXT-BOOK Terms of Service. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents, or government agencies.

If the ownership of all or substantially all of the TXT-BOOK business, or individual business units owned by Noodler, LLC., were to change, information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. We may also transfer information if we partner with another company.

 

GIFT CARDS

 

TXT-BOOK gift cards ("gift card") may be used to purchase any eligible product available for purchase in TXT-BOOK. In order to purchase or redeem a gift card, you must have the TXT-BOOK app on a supported Android device. The recipient of a gift card will be notified via email if chosen as the delivery method, otherwise by printed version; if the recipient does not have TXT-BOOK at the time he or she receives such email, he or she will be prompted to download TXT-BOOK to redeem the gift card.

The amount of the gift card you purchase will be charged to your credit card when you confirm your purchase of such gift card. The purchase of gift cards is governed by the terms set forth under “Terms”, except as otherwise provided in this section.

Once the recipient of the gift card redeems the gift card, then the value of the gift card will apply to the recipient's TXT-BOOK account as a credit toward purchases on TXT-BOOK. If a purchase exceeds the amount of the gift card, the balance must be paid by credit card or other available payment method. Gift cards cannot be used to purchase other gift cards. Gift cards never expire.

Except where prohibited by applicable law, gift card recipients may not (a) receive refunds for gift card, (b) resell or otherwise transfer gift cards to others (including without limitation transferring gift cards to other TXT-BOOK Users’ accounts), (c) reload gift cards, or (d) redeem unused gift card balances if they no longer wish to use TXT-BOOK. Gift cards are not currency, and do not have cash value outside of TXT-BOOK. TXT-BOOK is not responsible for any unauthorized use of a gift card.
