4. ZAZING DEALS AND BILLING
It is zaZing’s mission to provide users with as many premium business choices as possible.
You can find the specific details regarding your subscription to zaZing deals at any time by clicking on Your Account or the zaZing website. You agree that your zaZing deals account is for individual use only. Additionally, you agree that for various reasons, such as restrictions from partners information and other limitations or considerations from third parties may not be available.
Billing. By signing up for your zaZing deals, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge your account, any other fees for additional products or services you may purchase, and any applicable taxes in connection with your use of zaZing deals to the credit card or other payment method accepted by zaZing ("Payment Method") that you provided during registration and your purchasing process. If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up for during registration, or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by clicking on Your Account.
Payment Method. We automatically bill your Payment Method for each deal you decide to purchase on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your coupon.
Very rarely, if there are special circumstances where zaZing determines it is appropriate (e.g., the zaZing deals service is unavailable for days due to technical difficulties), we may provide credits to affected subscribers. The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at zaZing’s sole and absolute discretion, and the provision of credits in one instance does not entitle anyone to credits in the future under similar or different circumstances. Upon completion of the transaction you, as a purchaser and member, verify that you are authorized to consummate such a transaction and agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement as well as the specific terms and conditions as defined by each offered deal. All sales are final. Concerns with regards to individual products or services purchased are to be dealt with directly with the vendor from which the coupon was purchased and the product or service was to be received. All sales are final. Buyer beware.
Unpaid Amounts. In order to sustain the zaZing deals service, it is important that each user of the zaZing deals service honor the payment obligations to which the user agreed. Accordingly, we reserve the right to pursue any amounts you fail to pay in connection with zaZing deals. You will remain liable to zaZing for all such amounts and all costs we incur in connection with the collection of these amounts, including, without limitation, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs. zaZing and its partners will aggressively pursue abuse of the purchasing process. By completing the coupon purchasing process all buyers agree to comply with the Terms and Conditions of this agreement as well as the Terms of each individual deal.
Promotion Codes. On occasion, we may be authorized to offer the use of zaZing deals through promotion codes for certain qualifying users. If we offer you a promotion code, the specific terms of your promotion code will be stated in the marketing material describing the particular promotion code. We are unable to accommodate combining promotion codes with any other offers. To the extent zaZing deals are offered in conjunction with purchases of, or payment for, third party products or services, you agree that zaZing will not be liable to you for any claims arising out of or related to your purchase or use of such third party products or services.
Return Policy Users of zaZing.com recognize that ZaZing acts as a broker. As a broker you recognize that when you purchase a voucher / coupon from ZaZing, you receive a discounted price voucher/coupon that shows the value of goods or services that you can obtain from the merchant whose voucher/coupon you have purchased. ZaZing retains a commission from the money you pay to purchase the voucher/coupon, but remits the majority of your purchase price to the merchant. In this way, you are obtaining a discount by pre-paying the vendor for goods and services through the ZaZing website. ZaZing is earning a fee for providing this service to you.
When you make a purchase from ZaZing, you are agreeing to the terms of the deal as presented at the time of purchase and the TERMS AND CONDITIONS of this Agreement. In every case, this includes not duplicating vouchers/coupons or attempting to alter, deface, or misrepresent any details or terms related to a voucher / coupon or offer.
You understand that vouchers/coupons must be used on or before the expiration date shown on the voucher/coupon. As a User you understand that the vouchers/coupon offered on zaZing may change at any time; that only a limited number of a particular voucher/coupon may be made available, either in total or to a single customer; that a particular customer may be restricted as to the number or type of vouchers/coupons that the customer is permitted to purchase; and that other restrictions not listed here may apply to specific offers, promotions, or vouchers/coupons on the zaZing site.
You may return any voucher/coupon for a refund of your purchase price within 48 hours of your purchase as long as the voucher/coupon has not been redeemed for goods or services. After this time, zaZing will forward your voucher/coupon information and your purchase price - minus the zaZing commission - to the merchant whose voucher/coupon you have purchased. Thus, if you wish to obtain a refund for a voucher/coupon you have purchase more than 48 ours after purchase, you must contact the merchant to seek a refund. The merchant’s refund policies will then apply and you agree to consider the voucher/coupon as a gift certificate that you have purchased directly from the merchant. The merchant’s refund policies are stated as part of each voucher/coupon offer.
The zaZing commission is not refundable after the 48 hour refund period, and any refund you obtain from a merchant after that time will be reduced by the amount of the commission retained by zaZing.
