Privacy and Communications Preferences
Membership and Billing
You can find the specific details regarding your membership with YoungCuts at anytime by visiting our website and logging in to your Member account.
Your YoungCuts membership may include a free trial of select Videos. This free access is provided so that you can determine if the form and substance of the Videos satisfy you prior to purchasing a paid membership. These Videos are not intended to provide you with a full range of content available with the Service. Some of the Videos may contain scenes that you may find disturbing, including but not limited to scenes of a sexual nature or scenes containing offensive language. If you are concerned about this type of content, then you should not subscribe to the Service.
By starting your YoungCuts membership, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a single payment membership fee or a monthly membership fee or an annual membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the YoungCuts Service to the payment method you provided during registration or thereafter (“Payment Method”).
Visit our website, log in to your account and click on the "My Account" link on the "Account Manager" page to see your subscription details.
We may also periodically authorize your card in anticipation of membership or related charges. All fees and charges are fully earned upon payment. Payments are non-refundable and THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website, logging in and clicking on the "My Account" button, available at the top of the pages of the youngcuts.com website. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you authorize us to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Your YoungCuts membership will continue in effect until the end of your membership term. Membership fees are fully earned upon payment.
You may cancel your membership to YoungCuts at anytime, and cancellation will be effective immediately. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL SUBSCRIPTION TERMS. To cancel, send us an email at email@example.com and we will delete your account.
Right to Terminate
We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your use of our Service, without notice, for any or no reason whatsoever.
How Our Service Works
YoungCuts is an online subscription rental Service providing its members with access to Videos streamed over the Internet to YoungCuts Ready Devices. These devices are sold by entities other than YoungCuts Inc.
Availability: The availability of Videos to instantly watch will change from time to time. The quality of the display of the streaming movies and TV shows may vary from computer to computer, and device to device, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your Internet connection. You are responsible for all Internet access charges. Please check with your Internet provider for information on possible usage-based data charges. YoungCuts makes no representations or warranties about the quality of your instant watching experience on your display.
END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT: BY USING OUR SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE (1) TO THE YOUNGCUTS SOFTWARE END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT FOUND HERE AS SUCH MAY BE AMENDED OR ADDED TO FROM TIME TO TIME AND (2) TO RECEIVE, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE OR PROMPTING, UPDATED VERSIONS OF THE YOUNGCUTS AND RELATED THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THE FOREGOING TERMS, DO NOT USE OUR SERVICE.
Features & Functionality
The member who created the youngcuts.com account and whose Payment Method is charged is referred to here as the Account Owner. The Account Owner has access and control over the YoungCuts account. The Account Owner's control is exercised through use of the Account Owner's password and therefore to maintain exclusive control, the Account Owner should not reveal the password to anyone. In addition, if the Account Owner wishes to prohibit others from contacting YoungCuts Customer Support and potentially altering the Account Owner's control, the Account Owner should not reveal the last four digits of their credit or debit card associated with their account, or their email address if they use PayPal as their payment method.
Account Access; Identity Protection
You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer or YoungCuts ready device. If you disclose your password to anyone or share your account and/or devices with other people, you take full responsibility for their actions. Where possible, users of public or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you sell or return a computer or YoungCuts ready device, you should logout and/or deactivate the device before doing so. If you fail to log out or deactivate your device, subsequent users may be able to access certain of your account information.
If you find that you're a victim of identity theft and it involves a YoungCuts account, you should notify YoungCuts customer service. Then, you should report this instance to all your card issuers, as well as your local law enforcement agency. Also, you should be mindful of any emails requesting that you submit credit card or other account information. These types of emails, also known as phishing emails, can result in identity theft. Always access your sensitive account information by going directly to the YoungCuts website and not through a hyperlink in an email, even if it looks official. YoungCuts reserves the right to place any account on hold anytime with or without notification to the member in order to protect itself and its partners from what it believes to be fraudulent activity. YoungCuts is not obligated to credit or discount a membership for holds placed on the account by either a representative of YoungCuts or by the automated processes of YoungCuts.
