Standard Terms and Conditions for DC Comics eGift Cards



The DC Comics eGift Card program allows you to purchase and send virtual DC Comics eGift Cards by email. As used in these terms, words such as “us,” “we,” or “our” refer to DC Comics. “Redemption” of DC Comics eGift Cards refers to the addition of DC Comics eGift Card amounts to the recipient’s account balance. “Use” of DC Comics eGift Cards refers to use of the recipient’s account balance to purchase an eligible item.

By purchasing, redeeming, or using DC Comics eGift Cards, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions (collectively, these “Terms”):

1.

Purchase, Redemption and Use.

Purchases of DC Comics eGift Cards are final and not refundable. You will be charged at the time you purchase a DC Comics eGift Card. You may purchase, redeem, and use DC Comics eGift Cards through our website, www.readdcentertainment.com (the “Website”), and to do so you must have an account on our Website (“User Account”). Recipients will be notified of their receipt of DC Comics eGift Cards by email. To redeem a DC Comics eGift Card, the recipient will add the DC Comics eGift Card amount to an existing or newly created User Account. Instructions for creating a User Account and redeeming DC Comics eGift Cards will be available through the notification email and on our Website.
When you redeem a DC Comics eGift Card, the amount of the DC Comics eGift Card is added to your User Account balance. Purchases of eligible items are automatically charged against your account balance before being charged to your payment method. Purchase amounts exceeding your available account balance will be charged to your payment method.
DC Comics eGift Cards may also be redeemable on the websites of certain participating business partners (“partner websites”) selling comic books through comiXology website services and technology; additional terms and conditions may apply to redemption and use of DC Comics eGift Cards on partner websites, which are subject to change at any time without notice.

2.

Eligible Items.

After you redeem your DC Comics eGift Cards, your account balance can be used to purchase comic books or other eligible content for sale on our Website or on a participating partner website. Subscriptions and pre-orders require a default payment method, but account balances will be applied to charges for subscriptions and pre-orders before your default payment method is charged.

3.

Expiration and Fees.

DC Comics eGift Cards are not subject to fees or expiration dates, unless otherwise specified in connection with certain promotional or charitable DC Comics eGift Cards.

4.

Limitations.

You may not use DC Comics eGift Cards to purchase additional eGift Cards or for prior purchases. You may not redeem or use DC Comics eGift Cards on foreign (country top level domain) websites, on any mobile applications, on any application, site, or service other than readdcentertainment.com, comixology.com or a participating partner website, or for any purchase not in U.S. dollars. You may not redeem DC Comics eGift Cards for cash, except for DC Comics eGift Cards purchased in CA, CO, ME, MA, MN, NJ, OR, RI, VT, or WA (and only to the extent required by the laws applicable in such states), or as otherwise required by applicable law. You may not transfer or assign DC Comics eGift Cards or account balances to any other person or account. DC Comics eGift Cards may not be purchased, redeemed, or used in Cuba, Iran, the Sudan, or Syria, or any place where prohibited by law.

5.

Terms and Privacy.

Purchase, redemption and use of DC Comics eGift Cards are also subject to our Website and any applicable partner website Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, and other terms or policies in effect at the time, as applicable. For information about how we collect, use and disclose information relating to use of our Website, please see our Privacy Policy at www.readdcentertainment.com. We or our service providers may disclose to the purchaser of a DC Comics eGift Card whether or not the recipient has redeemed the DC Comics eGift Card.

6.

Changes to these Terms.

We may change these Terms at any time, without prior notice to you, by posting the new Terms on our Website, or providing notice through any other means we choose in our discretion. To the extent permitted by applicable law, any change will become effective at the time we post the revised Terms on our Website or otherwise provide notice. Unless we state otherwise, changes will apply to your existing and future DC Comics eGift Cards and account balances. By purchasing, redeeming, or using any DC Comics eGift Card after changes are posted on our Website or otherwise made available to you, you are agreeing to such Terms as changed.

7.

Risk of Loss.

Risk of loss of DC Comics eGift Cards passes to the purchaser upon our or our service provider’s electronic transmission of notice of the DC Comics eGift Card to the recipient email address specified by the purchaser. We and our service providers are not responsible if a DC Comics eGift Card is lost, stolen, used without authorization, or if a recipient fails to redeem or use a DC Comics eGift Card.

8.

Errors, Corrections.

We reserve the right to correct any clerical, accounting, or billing error and to adjust the balance of your account accordingly. If you have any questions regarding your account balance, please contact support@comixology.com.

Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.

12.

Other Legal Matters.

If any provision of these Terms is determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms will otherwise remain in full force and effect and be enforceable.
