Shine Credits, Payment and Refunds
Outshinery’s products and services are available solely through our Shine Credit system. In order to purchase products and services, you must first purchase Shine Credits. Payment is due at the time of Shine Credit purchase, whether you are purchasing an annual or monthly subscription (“Subscription Shine Credits”) or standard Shine Credits (“Standard Shine Credits”). At the time of purchasing your subscription, you may also purchase additional Standard Shine Credits to complement your subscription.
All references to currency on Outshinery’s site are to US Dollars and your credit card will be charged in US Dollars, regardless of your location. Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 5% will be applied to all transactions for Canadian clients.
Subscription Shine Credits are purchased on an annual or monthly basis, depending on the subscription frequency you choose. Unused Subscription Shine Credits can be carried over: (i) to the next year, for annual plans; and (ii) to the next month, for monthly plans; as long as you continue to renew your subscription. If you do not renew your subscription, you will have a one (1) year grace period to use up any remaining Subscription Shine Credits. If you do not use your remaining Subscription Shine Credits within the grace period, the Subscription Shine Credits will expire. A reminder notification will be sent to all Subscription Shine Credit clients one (1) month prior to the expiry of the Subscription Shine Credits, with details of their remaining Subscription Shine Credit balance and the expiry date. Subscription Shine Credits will expire if not used before their expiry date. Subscription Shine Credits cannot be converted to Standard Shine Credits.
Standard Shine Credits purchased as a package or along with your subscription have no expiration date and are available for use at any time following your purchase.
In the event that you purchase a subscription and later require a greater number of Shine Credits than anticipated for that year, you have the option to adjust your Subscription Shine Credit package to better reflect your business needs. If you purchase an adjusted Subscription Shine Credit package, this new package will be treated as a new Subscription and the expiry date for the adjusted package will be the first (1st) day of the month immediately following the one (1) year anniversary of the date of purchase of the adjusted package. You may also purchase Standard Shine Credits to supplement your subscription on an as-needed basis. To do so, please contact us and we would be pleased to assist you.
Refunds are not available for monthly subscription packages. Refunds on annual subscriptions are available upon written request, on a prorated basis, within three (3) months of purchase. Refunds for Standard Shine Credits are available upon written request, on a prorated basis, within three (3) months of purchase. In the event that you have approved a final proof for a product or service, the corresponding Shine Credits for that product will be redeemed and no refund will be available.
Use of Shine Credits
Outshinery will maintain a record of all Shine Credits purchased on your account. Shine Credits are accessed initially by contacting Outshinery with the details of the project to be completed. Outshinery will respond with the service pricing for the proposed project, as well as the number of Shine Credits you have remaining on your account. In the event that you require additional Shine Credits to complete the project, you may choose to purchase a specific number of Standard Shine Credits, or may wish to adjust your Subscription Shine Credit amount. Outshinery operates solely on the Shine Credit system for completion of projects and will not accept any alternative forms of payment.
With the consent of Outshinery, Shine Credits purchased by a parent company may be used by any subsidiaries of that company, or Shine Credits purchased by a subsidiary company may be used by any associated subsidiary companies. Shine Credits are otherwise non-transferable and may only be used by the original purchaser for its own product needs. Outshinery reserves the right to refuse service that Outshinery deems to be in violation of this term.
Changes to Shine Credit Value and Service Pricing
Outshinery will review its pricing and value schedule for Shine Credits periodically and reserves the right to change, from time to time: (i) the pricing of Standard and Subscription Shine Credits, and (ii) Outshinery’s value schedule (i.e. the number of Shine Credits per service). You will be notified of any changes to Shine Credit value or service pricing at least thirty (30) days prior to such changes taking effect.
