These Terms of Service are subject to change without prior written notice at any time, in Company’s sole discretion, and such changes shall apply to any purchases made after such changes are posted to the Site or the Social Network.

Delivery

Regarding any Film that you rent through the Site, you acknowledge and agree that upon making such Films available to you (or to their intended authorized recipients), Japan Flix will have fully satisfied its obligation to deliver or otherwise provide such Films, regardless of any failure or inability to view such Films.

Although we are committed to preserving a wonderful user experience, under no circumstances do you acquire rights to delivery of any FREE Films and content. Due to system configurations, it is possible that you may have access to a Film for a period longer than you paid for. Any such access is purely coincidental and additional access does not obligate Japan Flix to provide additional access at any other time.

In the event of an error, whether on the Site, in an order confirmation, in processing an order, delivering a Film or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly if necessary (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. In addition, we may, in lieu of a refund as provided in this paragraph, opt to provide you with a merchandise or service credit with a value at least equal to the amount charged to your credit card.
