PRIVACY POLICY

Please review our Privacy Policy, which also governs your visit to this Site, to understand our practices.

 

RISK OF LOSS

The risk of loss and title for items purchased through your use of the Site pass to the gift recipient (the “Recipient”) upon the vendor’s delivery of the item to the carrier, unless the vendor’s terms of sale provide otherwise. If the gift is lost or destroyed prior to delivery, we will reasonably assist the Recipient in obtaining the repair or replacement of the item utilizing our commercial relationship with the vendor; however, we are not responsible to you or the Recipient for any costs associated with such repair or replacement.

SUBSCRIPTIONS

You may elect to participate in our subscription program which allows you to open and fund your own account for future gift purchases. Should you choose this option, the following additional terms and conditions apply:

  1. You will receive a designated account the status of which you may examine any time online by accessing the Alyce website and logging in your account name and password.
  2. You will be required to select the duration of your subscription, which may be either a One Time Subscription or a Monthly Subscription for a designated period of months. Your account will remain open for the duration of your Subscription unless you elect to terminate your Monthly Subscription at the conclusion of a month by indicating this election on your dashboard. Monthly Subscriptions are to be funded by you each month in an amount you select. Alternatively, you may elect to fund the full amount of your Monthly Subscription in one payment. One Time Subscriptions must be funded in a single payment before your account can be opened.
  3. You will be required to fund your account with a minimum of $500 for future gift purchases.
  4. Funding of your subscription account can be accomplished by use of a credit card or by invoice. For invoice purchases, Alyce Credits (as defined below) will only be recognized once the invoice has been paid and funds are finally credited to us.
  5. Deposits to your account will be designated “Alyce Credits” that may be applied at your discretion for gifting. One (1) Alyce Credit is equal to one (1) US Dollar.
  6. Alyce Credits are not refundable and can only be used for gifting transactions through Alyce. You may elect not to use your Alyce Credits and complete any transaction using other authorized means of payment.
  7. For One Time Subscriptions: Alyce Credits expire if not used within ninety (90) days from date of your funding deposit. Any unused Alyce Credits will be forfeited at the conclusion of the ninety-day period. However, if you deposit at least $500 to your account at any time during the ninety-day period before your Alyce Credits expire, the total balance of your Alyce Credits (new deposits and unused prior Alyce Credits) will be available to you for the further ninety (90) days from the date of the new deposit. If you fail to use any of your Alyce Credits during that further ninety-day period, those unused Alyce Credits will expire at the end of the ninety-day period. You should regularly check your account status to determine whether any Alyce Credits are about to expire.
  8. For Monthly Subscriptions: Alyce Credits expire if not used by the end of your designated Monthly Subscription period. Any unused Alyce Credits will be forfeited at the conclusion of your designated subscription period. However, if you deposit at least $500 to your account at any time during the ten-day period before your subscription expires, the total balance of your Alyce Credits (new deposit and unused prior Alyce Credits) will be available to you for a further thirty (30) days from the date of the new deposit (the “Saving Credit”). If you fail to use any of your Alyce Credits during that further thirty-day period, those unused Alyce Credits will expire at the end of the thirty-day period. You should regularly check your account status to determine whether any Alyce Credits are about to expire.
  9. Should you elect to make monthly payments under your subscription and you fail to make a timely monthly payment, your account and subscription will be closed and all Alyce Credits then remaining in your account will be forfeited. The Saving Credit of “8” above shall not apply to non-payment situations.
  10. You may be awarded additional Alyce Credits for participating in Alyce promotional campaigns. These campaigns may include a subscription participation award, purchase-related bonuses, volume purchase bonuses, or other campaigns or events as determined from time to time by us at our discretion. Such awards will be credited to your account and may be used at any time your account remains open.

 

OTHER PROCESSING TERMS

You are responsible for providing accurate contact and other information about your intended Recipient through the Site, which enables us to identify suggested gifts for the Recipient. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that you have obtained all necessary consents and permission to provide to us the personal information of a Recipient. In addition, you are responsible for any costs, expenses, or losses incurred as a result of providing inaccurate Recipient information.

We will provide you with a list of suggested gifts from which you may select, or request that we provide additional suggestions. The choice of gift is at your sole discretion. We will then contact the Recipient and allow them to (1) accept the gift you have selected for them; (2) select an alternative gift of like cost; or (3) elect to forego the gift and allocate the purchase price to a tax-qualified charity of their choice. We will provide the Recipient with a list of suggested charitable organizations.

Prices listed for gifts featured on the Site include shipping, taxes, and all other fees. You will only be charged for the amount listed at the time of selection. No charges will be incurred by the Recipient for accepting their gift. Once you have made a gift selection, we will process the transaction by requesting funds from your credit or debit card holder. If the vendor changes its price for the gift before we are able to process the charge or if the gift becomes unavailable, we will notify you prior to sending the gift. In this instance, you agree that your options are to (a) pay the additional cost, or (b) select another gift at the list price.

 

PROCESSING OF DONATIONS

As soon as the intent to make a charitable donation is confirmed to us through the Site, and we have received cleared funds from you, we will make sure that they are allocated to the selected charity or charities on our system. We can only accept responsibility for a donation payment reaching the charity or charities once we have received the funds from your credit or debit card provider account. It is your credit or debit card provider’s responsibility to make sure that the funds reach us. If we are unable to make payment due to lack of funds or we feel that it is not appropriate to pass on a donation to the selected charity (for example, if the charity is de-registered, or has a sanction listed against it) then we will  notify the Recipient to select a different charity. If we are unable to contact the Recipient then Alyce, Inc., at its discretion, will select an appropriate, alternative charity to pass the donation or payment to. Should you require written confirmation from the charity of the donation for tax or other purposes, it is your  responsibility to obtain such confirmation directly from the charity.

 

CHARGEBACKS, CANCELLATIONS OR UNAUTHORIZED CARD USE

Once the cost of a gift has been charged to your credit or debit card, if the card is cancelled or suspended, or if a chargeback or other charge cancellation is initiated before the charge is completed, you agree that you remain responsible for payment as well as reimbursing us for any charges we incur as a result. It is your responsibility to monitor your account for any unauthorized use.

If you become aware of fraudulent use of your credit or debit card, or if it is lost or stolen, you must notify your card provider as soon as possible and we recommend you also update your account with an alternative form of payment.

 

REFUNDS

We do not offer refunds once a gift is purchased or a charitable donation is made. All product refunds must be handled by the merchant from whom the purchase was made. We are happy to provide any information we have available that may be required to make this claim.

 

TERMINATION AND EFFECT OF TERMINATION

In addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, we may, without prior notice to you, immediately terminate the Agreement or revoke any or all of your rights granted under this Agreement. Upon any termination of this Agreement, you shall immediately cease all access to and use of the Site and we shall, in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, immediately revoke all password(s) and account identification issued to you and deny your access to and use of this Site in whole or in part.
