Terms & Conditions

Welcome to The Ice Society!

For the protection of our partners, suppliers, you and us, the Terms and Conditions of theicesociety.com are very important.

Jerry Ghionis, the owner and operator of www.icesociety.com, and its affiliates and suppliers provide their media hosting and related services to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or purchase at theicesociety.com, you accept these terms and conditions.

Subscriptions

The Ice Society provides its services on an annual subscription basis. By subscribing to The Ice Society, you agree to pay all charges to your account in accordance with the billing terms in effect when payment is due. The Ice society reserves the right to modify or add additional fees and billing terms, upon prior notice to the member on our website. Unless you terminate your account prior to the end of each annual period, your subscription will automatically expire one year after your registration date, but you will be sent reminder emails before your membership expires. Subscribers must keep their registered email addresses and other account information current, as The Ice Society may send important notices, such as reminders about the expiration of your membership to that email account.¨If we are unable to process your credit card payment, your account will not be activated until such funds go through.

After submitting your registration, a confirmation email will be sent to you.

Termination

The Ice Society may terminate your account or your access to and use of this site, with or without cause at any time and effective immediately, at The Ice Society's sole discretion, for any reason including but not limited to your failure to conform with these Terms. If you violate these Terms, the Ice Society, in its sole discretion, may also elect to require you to remedy any violation of these Terms, and/or take any other actions that the Ice Society deems appropriate to enforce its rights and pursue all available remedies. Upon the termination of your membership, you will not receive a refund for any subscription fees previously charged to, or still remaining, on your account.

Limitation of Liability

In no event will we, our officers, employees, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, agents, successors, affiliates or assigns be liable to any party for any direct, indirect, or other consequential loss for any use of this web site, or use of any other linked website, even if we are expressly advised of the possibility of such loss. The term "loss" includes, without limitation, legal fees, any lost profits, business interruption and loss of programmes or other data on your information handling system.

Typographical Errors

In the event that an Ice Society product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, the Ice Society reserves the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for product listed at the incorrect price. The Ice Society reserves the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, the Ice Society shall issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.

Confidentiality

The Ice Society cannot guarantee your confidential use of this site. We shall not be responsible for any harm that you or any person may suffer as a result of a breach of confidentiality in respect to your use of this site.

Privacy

The Ice Society has established a Privacy Policy to explain to you how your information is collected and used. Your use of The Ice Society website or the Services signifies acknowledgement of and agreement to our Privacy Policy.

You acknowledge and agree that The Ice Society may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to carry out these Terms, or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of the Ice Society, its employees, users and third parties, and the public.

Electronic communications

When you visit theicesociety.com, or send e-mails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail to your registered email address or by posting notices on this site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

Account security

If you subscribe to The Ice Society's hosting service, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You further agree to immediately notify the Ice Society of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security known to you.

The Ice Society uses industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to store the non-public information collected by the Ice Society website in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, we cannot guarantee complete security. Further, while we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally accessing our site.

Reviews, comments, communications and other content

Use of the Services by you is subject to all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations. You may post reviews, comments, suggestions, ideas, questions, or other information (collectively "Content"), so long as the Content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of "spam." The Ice Society reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit Content, but does not regularly review posted Content.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold the Ice Society, its subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, assigns, directors, officers, agents, employees, service providers, and suppliers harmless from any dispute that may arise from your breach of these Terms of Use or violation of any representations or warranties contained in these Terms. You also agree to hold The Ice Society harmless from any claims and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees and court costs, related to any media or other material you provide to or post on The Ice Society.

Third-Party Links

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, The Ice Society may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with The Ice Society, we have no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of The Ice Society. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, The Ice Society seeks to protect the integrity of its web site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own site, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).

Shopping Cart

Upon placing an order with The Ice Society you are deemed to have entered into the terms and conditions as set out in this section. Upon receipt of your order, you will receive an e-mail confirming that your order has been processed and an electronic confirmation will be issued.

Delivery

Shipping is included in the price of all Jerry Ghionis Educational Products (with the exception of the Ice Light). The delivery services vary depending on where you live and the time you place your order. Please allow up to 21 days to receive you order. We cannot guarantee delivery dates and late delivery does not constitute a failure of our agreement, nor does it entitle cancellation of your order. It is the customer's responsibility to inform the Ice Society if an order has not arrived.

Cancellation of orders

If you wish to cancel your order, please contact the Ice Society immediately by emailing info@icesociety.com. Once payment for an order has been accepted, or if the product has left our premises, we cannot accept any cancellations.

Refund Policy

Please choose carefully before you purchase your product as we do not offer refunds for change of mind.
Due to its reproducible nature, we do not issue refunds for DVD products. We stand behind all of our products and will gladly exchange any physical merchandise that:

  • is damaged during shipping
  • is defective

The product must be returned to us in its original condition, unopened and unused. The customer will pay all freight charges for the return of the item. You have 7 days from the arrival of your parcel to return the item to us.
