Membership, Free Trials, Billing and Cancellation
Ongoing Membership Your RSS membership, which starts with a free 7-day trial, will continue month-to-month, or annually and automatically renew unless and until you cancel your membership, or we terminate it. You must have Internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, "Payment Method") to use the RSS Service. We will bill the monthly membership fee to your Payment Method. You must cancel your membership in the manner described below before it renews each month in order to avoid billing of the next month's membership fees to your Payment Method.
Differing Memberships We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships with differing conditions and limitations. Any materially different terms from those described in this Agreement will be disclosed at your sign-up or in other communications made available to you. You can find specific details regarding your membership by clicking on the "My Account" > "Manage Subscriptions" links. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered membership plans.
Free Trials If you qualify, your RSS membership starts with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for 7 days starting with the day on which you complete the creation your RSS account and, as a result, have access to the RSS Service. Free trials are for new and certain former members only. We reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility.
We will begin billing your Payment Method for monthly membership fees at the end of the free trial period of your membership, and your membership will automatically renew monthly unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the specific details of your membership, including monthly membership price and end date of your free trial period, visit our website and click the "Your Account" page. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.
CLICK THE "MY ACCOUNT" > "MANAGE SUBSCRIPTIONS" LINKS AT THE TOP OF ANY RSS WEB PAGE (https://streaming.romneystudios.com) TO FIND CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your membership fee until you cancel. If you cancel after the free trial period, cancellation will be effective at the end of the current period for which you have paid.
Recurring Billing By starting your RSS membership and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the RSS Service, such as taxes or possible transaction fees, to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, including gift card redemption and promotional code redemption, and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed monthly in one or more charges.
No Refunds PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. 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.
Payment Methods When you create your RSS Service account, you will provide information and authorization regarding your Payment Method. You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the "Your Account" link, available at the top of the pages of the Romney Studios website. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
Cancellation You may cancel your RSS Service membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the RSS Service through the end of your monthly billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH MEMBERSHIP PERIODS OR UNWATCHED RSS CONTENT. To cancel, go to the "My Account" > "Manage Subscriptions" page on our website and follow the instructions for cancellation. If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period.

The availability of RSS Content will change from time to time, and from country to country.

By using the RSS Service, you agree to look solely to the entity that manufactured and/or sold you the device for any issues related to the device and its compatibility with the RSS Service. If your RSS-Ready Device is sold, lost or stolen, please deactivate it immediately. If you fail to log out or deactivate your device, subsequent users may access the RSS Service through your account and may be able to access certain of your account information. You will be responsible for the RSS Content accessed, and any purchases made, by such users.
Passwords & Account Access You are responsible for your RSS Service account (your “Account”). Your control of your Account is exercised through use of your password. Therefore, to maintain exclusive control, you should not reveal the password to anyone. In addition, if you wish to prohibit others from contacting RSS Customer Service and potentially altering your control, you should not reveal the Payment Method details (e.g., last four digits of your credit or debit card, or your email address if you use PayPal) associated with your Account. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the truth and accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to your Account.

You should be mindful of any communication requesting that you submit credit card or other account information. Providing your information in response to these types of communications can result in identity theft. Always access your sensitive account information by going directly to the RSS website and not through a hyperlink in an email or any other electronic communication, even if it looks official. We reserve the right to place your Account on hold anytime with or without notification to you in order to protect ourselves and our partners from what we believe to be fraudulent activity. We are not obligated to credit or discount your membership for holds placed on your Account by either us or a representative of the automated processes of the RSS Service.

These Applications may import data related to your Account and activity and otherwise gather data from you. These Applications are provided solely as a convenience to you, and we are not responsible for such Applications.

In addition, you agree not to enforce any "moral rights" in and to the Feedback, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
Special Provisions Regarding Intelivideo The RSS Service uses the platform (the “Platform”) owned and provided by Intelivideo. The Platform allows us to make RSS Content available to you and allows you to order and pay for the RSS Content. The Platform also allows Intelivideo to collect and analyze data regarding how the RSS Services are used by RSS members. By using the RSS Service, you authorize the collection of that data, and, to the maximum extent permissible under applicable laws, you release Intelivideo, its affiliates and their respective owners, officers, directors, employees, agents and assigns from any claims arising from your use of the RSS Content or the RSS Service.
If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to us, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice must be addressed to: 5619 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70115, Attention: Legal Department ("Notice Address"). If we initiate arbitration, we will send a written Notice to the email address that is associated with your Account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by us, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement. Unless we and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana.
If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
