This Service is owned and operated by Disney Online (referred to as "Disney", "we", "us", or "our" herein).

By using this Service, you agree to this Disney Digital Books Member Agreement, the Disney Terms of Use [http://disney.go.com/legal/conditions_of_use.html], and the Disney House Rules [http://disney.go.com/guestservices/netiquette.html] (collectively, the "Agreement"). If you do not agree to each of these documents in their entirety, please do not use the Service. Please note that you will be referred to from time to time as "Member" in this Agreement. The person who purchases the Service may also be referred to as the "Account Holder" in this Agreement. "Account" means the account registered to any Member, pursuant to the registration procedures for the Service. The terms of this Agreement apply to all Members and users of the Service via the Account, whether or not they are the Account Holder. The Account Holder is responsible for making each of the Members of their Account (and anyone else they may allow access to their Account) aware of the terms of this Agreement and for ensuring compliance. The Account Holder for an Account is entirely liable for all activities conducted through that Account.

We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove (collectively, "Change" or the "Changes") portions of this Agreement (including the Terms of Use and House Rules) at any time, and Changes will be effective immediately upon posting of the revised Agreement at the domain or subdomain where the prior version was posted. It is the Member's responsibility to review these terms, the Terms of Use, and the House Rules for any Changes. Although notification of Changes to this Agreement may from time to time be posted on the Service or sent via e-mail or postal mail, such notification does not waive or otherwise excuse Member's affirmative obligation to review the Agreement for Changes, and to understand and agree to the most up-to-date terms of the Service. We suggest that you review the terms of this Member Agreement, the Terms of Use, and the House Rules for Changes each time prior to using the Service.

If any future Changes to this Agreement are unacceptable to you, or cause you to no longer be in compliance with this Agreement, you must terminate your Account. Your continued use of the Service following Changes to this Agreement (including the Terms of Use and House Rules) will signify that you accept those Changes.

We may change, modify, suspend, or discontinue any aspect of the Service at any time, including, without limitation, the availability of any Service feature, database or content, hours of availability, or equipment needed to access the Service. We may also impose limits on certain features or restrict your access to parts or all of the Service for extended periods of time, without notice or liability. We reserve the right to interrupt the Service with or without prior notice for any reason or no reason, and you shall not be entitled to any refunds of fees for interruption of the Service or its otherwise failure to perform. We cannot guarantee that this Service or any data stored or transmitted in connection with it will be uninterrupted, error-free, and secure of viruses and other malware.

Price and Payment

Disney reserves the right at any time to charge additional fees for access to the Service. Disney reserves the right to change the amount of, or basis for determining, any fees or charges for the Service, and to institute new fees or charges effective upon prior notice to Members via the email address of record on the Member's account or posting upon the domain or subdomain of the Service or any other method that is designed to provide reasonable notice to Members. Disney reserves the right to provide the Service at no charge for promotional reasons or otherwise (such as a free subscription or trial). PROVISION OF PROMOTIONAL TRIALS OR OTHER PREFERRED OR DISCOUNTED ACCESS TO SOME MEMBERS (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FULL OR LIMITED SUBSCRIPTIONS OFFERED FREE OF CHARGE) SHALL NOT OBLIGATE DISNEY TO PROVIDE SUCH PROMOTIONS, DISCOUNTS, OR PREFERRED ACCESS TO OTHER MEMBERS.

Each Account Holder agrees to pay all charges to the Account, including applicable taxes, in accordance with billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. Account Holders must provide Disney with valid information as requested during the registration process, which may include (but is not limited to) credit card information, promotional codes, or other means of payment.

If you have reason to believe that your Account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure or use of your Account ID, Password, or any credit, debit, PayPal, or charge card information stored on the Service), you must promptly change your Password and notify Disney of the problem (by giving notice as described in the Notice section below) to avoid possible liability for any unauthorized charges to your Account.

If Account Holder is paying by credit card (including debit and other charge cards):

Disney shall charge the Account Holder's credit card on the date Account Holder subscribes to the Service or if you have signed up for a free trial period, Disney shall charge the Account Holder's credit card on the day that the free trial expires. Thereafter, Disney will automatically renew and charge the Account Holder as follows:

  • Upon every one (1)-month anniversary of the first billing date for monthly subscriptions
  • Upon every six (6)-month anniversary of the first billing date for semiannual subscriptions
  • Upon every one (1)-year anniversary of the first billing date for annual subscriptions

The renewal charge shall be equal to or less than the original subscription price, unless otherwise notified in advance by Disney via the email address of record on the Member's account or posting upon the domain or subdomain of the Service or any other method that is designed to provide reasonable notice to Members. You may notify Disney that you wish to cancel your subscription at any time.
