The headings used in this agreement are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these Terms.
We are not responsible if information made available on this site is not accurate, complete or current. The material on this site is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon or used as the sole basis for making decisions without consulting primary, more accurate, more complete or more timely sources of information. Any reliance on the material on this site is at your own risk. Products offered for sale may contain descriptions including but not limited to Product format (hardcover, paperback, etc.), publisher summaries, page counts, word counts, suggested reading ages and suggested reading levels. These descriptions may have been provided by third parties, including but not limited to publishers, manufacturers, or distributors. When you purchase a Product from us, you agree to having read the relevant description provided on the Site. We do not, however, represent or warrant such descriptions are accurate or complete.
This site may contain certain historical information. Historical information, necessarily, is not current and is provided for your reference only. We reserve the right to modify the contents of this site at any time, but we have no obligation to update any information on our site. You agree that it is your responsibility to monitor changes to our site.
In order to use certain features of the Site or the Service, you must register for an account with us (“Account”) and provide certain information about yourself as prompted by the Site registration form. You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; and (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login information and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
For each Subscription or Product you order on the Site, you agree to pay the applicable price as of the time you submitted your order (“Product Price”), the delivery fees for the delivery Service you select (“Delivery Fees”), and any applicable Taxes (defined below). If you order a subscription to a Product (with a monthly term, or a term of 3 months, 6 months or 12 months) that auto-renews (“Subscription”), then you agree to pay the applicable Product Price, Delivery Fees, and Taxes upon each auto-renewal date, until you terminate your Subscription in accordance with the directions on the Site. Your next billing date will be displayed in your Account page for each of your active Subscriptions (“Renews on” date). We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled, if there are unforeseen delays that hinder our ability to ship your product or if there are changes to your Account or Subscriptions. Please also note that if your Subscription includes a discounted Product Price for a promotional period, once the promotional period expires, your Subscription will renew at the full Product Price. As such, if you purchase a Subscription, until such time as you terminate your Subscription in accordance with the directions on this site, you hereby authorize, agree and assent to the Company’s automatically billing your credit card submitted as part of the order process for such amounts that are due. You will be solely responsible for payment of all taxes (other than taxes based on Company’s income), fees, duties, and other governmental charges, and any related penalties and interest, arising from the Product purchase (“Taxes”) not withheld by Company. All payments are non-refundable (except as expressly set forth in this document). Without limiting other remedies, we reserve the right to charge a late fee on all past due payments equivalent to the lesser of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month on the unpaid balance or the highest rate allowed by law. You agree to pay for all collection costs, attorneys’ fees, and court costs incurred in the collection of past due amounts.
Products will be shipped via the shipping option you select at the time of purchase or by the shipping option selected by us, including but not limited to USPS Media Mail within the United States (continental, Alaska, Hawaii as well as overseas military addresses including APO, DPO, etc.). We reserve the right to make deliveries in installments.
The cost to ship Products that you purchase through the Site is calculated on a “per order,” “per item,” or “per pound” basis and is based on the shipping option selected by you or us at the time of purchase. We will ship, working by ourselves or through third-party fulfillment centers, the Products to the address designated by you so long as such address is complete and complies with the shipping restrictions contained on the Site. All transactions are made pursuant to a shipping contract and, as a result, risk of loss and title for the Product passes to you upon delivery of the Product to the carrier. Lost Product or Product returned as undeliverable will be replaced or reshipped to you only after you pay relevant replacement or shipping fees.
We will send you an email when your order has shipped and you may review your order and shipping information on your Account. Any delivery dates provided by us are estimates. Currently, we ship to the US only. You are responsible for keeping your account and shipping information accurate and up-to-date and any address changes for a month’s Subscription box must be made by the 15th of the month by 11:59pm PST to be valid for that month’s box.
If we guarantee delivery of Product by a certain date, we may provide a refund of any Delivery Fees associated with delivery of that Product if Product does not arrive by the guaranteed delivery date, subject to the following terms and requirements: (1) The ordered Product is covered by the delivery date guarantee; (2) the ordered Product is shipping to an eligible address; (3) the Product order is placed before any deadline associated with the guaranteed delivery date; and (4) the customer's credit card or debit card must also be successfully charged before the deadline associated with the guaranteed delivery date.
Our delivery guarantee shall be considered fulfilled under each of the following circumstances: (1) when the Product is successfully delivered on or before the guaranteed delivery date; (2) when an attempted delivery on or before the guaranteed delivery date is made; or (3) when an offer by the carrier of a delivery appointment on or before the guaranteed delivery date is made. The guarantee does not apply if we miss our promised delivery date because of an unforeseen circumstance outside of our control, such as a strike, pandemic, civil unrest, natural disaster, or severe winter storm. To inquire about a refund of the Delivery Fees associated with a Product order, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Auto-renewing Subscriptions: Except for one-time gifts, Subscriptions auto-renew on the 15th of the applicable month (for example, month-to-month Subscriptions renew on the 15th of each month, three month Subscriptions renew on the 15th of every third month, etc.). You can cancel the auto-renewal of your Subscription at any time. To cancel the auto-renewal on your Subscription so that it does not renew on the next renewal date, email us at email@example.com with the order number, name and/or email address of the applicable account.
Unless you indicate otherwise, we will continue to send any unsent boxes left on your account for which you have already paid. If you want to cancel any remaining shipments and receive a pro rata refund, please indicate this by email. Multi-month Subscriptions may be cancelled and a refund requested mid-term, and a pro-rated refund (excluding promotional discounts and discounts for multi-month subscriptions) will be issued for any remaining months.
Cancel the auto-renewal of your Subscription by 11:59 PM PST on the 15th of the renewal month if you do not wish to be charged again and receive future boxes. If you email to cancel after 11:59 PM PST on the 15th of the renewal month, you are ineligible for a refund for that month’s box and will receive that month’s box.
Gift subscriptions: One-time gift Subscriptions (1-, 3-, 6-, 12-month terms) are not eligible for cancellation. These Subscriptions will expire after the original term is complete.
If you are dissatisfied with your first Subscription box Product for any reason, Bookroo will refund the amount paid for your first month’s box (less any shipping and handling costs/fees related to the original purchase, which are non-refundable). Refund requests must be made directly to Bookroo at firstname.lastname@example.org. All refund requests must be made within thirty (30) days of the first date of shipment of your first Subscription box Product. Upon receipt of your request, Bookroo will provide instructions for returning the Product. If for any reason you do not receive a response within three (3) business days, resubmit your request. Bookroo is not liable for Products that are damaged or lost in transit to Bookroo. Promptly (typically within five (5) business days) following Bookroo’s receipt of the returned Product, Bookroo will credit the amount paid for the returned Subscription box Product (less any shipping and handling costs/fees related to the original purchase, which are non-refundable) to the Payment Method you used to make the original purchase. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bookroo does not control when a specific credit card or payment method company processes a chargeback transaction. You are responsible for contacting your credit card or payment method company if you have questions about the status of the refund.
Bookroo will not provide a refund for a request that is received by Bookroo more than thirty (30) days after the first date of shipment of your first Subscription box Product. Bookroo also does not provide a refund for returned Products that are damaged due to misuse, lack of care, mishandling, accident, abuse or other abnormal use.

In certain areas of the Site we provide tools that allow Users to create and modify digital elements.

On our platform, we make available the option for certain users to create registries that display Products they would like to own (each a “Registry”) and create and host book fairs (each a “Book Fair”). By creating a Registry or Book Fair, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Section 19 in addition to the additional Terms of Service. Registries and Book Fairs are limited to users in the United States.
We reserve the right to change or modify these Terms or any policy, FAQ, or guideline pertaining to Registries and Book Fairs, in whole or in part, at any time and in our sole discretion without prior notice to users. Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting the revisions to https://bookroo.com/terms-of-service, and you waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications, except as may be required by law. Your continued access to your Registry, your Book Wallet, or any Book Fair related service following any such changes or modifications confirms your acceptance of these Terms and such changes or modifications; therefore, you should frequently review these Terms and the FAQs and any additional guidelines pertaining to Registries and Book Fairs so that you understand the terms and conditions that apply to your access to, and participation in, either service. If you do not agree to these Terms, you must stop accessing and using the service.
Users can use our platform to create Registries on which they can display books they would like to own. Registries can be shared with others, who can then purchase books from the registry, or purchase other books for the user.
It is the responsibility of a user to edit and monitor the information on their Registry, including the name or any indentifying information. By creating a Registry on our platform and adding your mailing address, you acknowledge that we have the right to ship you items associated with the Registry. You are responsible for ensuring any shipping information added to your account is accurate.
Notwithstanding anything else in these terms and conditions, no refunds are available for books purchased for or from Registries.
We may make available catalogs displaying various books from which users can select to add books to their Registry. We may also allow users to edit or customize such catalogs, including for use during a Book Fair. We are not responsible for book selections in catalogs and make no warranties, guarantees, or representations regarding the suitability, age appropriateness, or any other consideration relevant to the books featured in catalogs or on our platform.
As part of the Registry or Book Fair set up, we create an online book wallet account (“Book Wallet”) for users. Funds can become available in a Book Wallet when a book is purchased from your Registry but is unavailable to be fulfilled, when a user cancels a backordered book, or when someone sponsors a book as part of a Book Fair. Book Wallet funds may be redeemed by users only for purchases on our Site. Book Wallet funds are specific to a user and cannot be shared or transferred. Book Wallet funds are non-refundable and non-transferable and may not be redeemed for cash, unless otherwise required by law. All funds in the Book Wallet are reflected in United States Dollars (USD), and every dollar contributed to a Book Wallet reflects the equivalent USD within the Book Wallet. You must be a legal resident of the United States and at least 18 years of age or the age of majority in your state to contribute to or redeem credit from a Book Wallet. Users are responsible for all Book Wallet activity and for ensuring that no unauthorized person has access to their Book Wallet. We do not warrant that access to a Book Wallet will be uninterrupted or error free, and we are not liable for loss of any funds pertaining to a user’s Book Wallet.
Please inspect your order upon receipt and contact us immediately if an item is damaged or if you received the wrong item. Notwithstanding Section 8, items ordered from a Registry or through a Book Fair are not returnable except in the case of damaged Product. If any items arrive damaged, please provide photo documentation of the damage to email@example.com within 48 hours of the Product’s delivery (as determined by USPS tracking data), and we will provide instructions for returning damaged Product. The title and risk of loss for all products purchased by you and shipped by us or on our behalf by a third-party pass to you upon delivery to a carrier for shipment, and we are not liable for shipments that are lost after being delivered to a carrier, or for late deliveries or any damage that has occurred in the delivery process. At our discretion, we will refund or replace any missing products or products that arrived damaged. If you are not satisfied with your order for any reason, please contact us immediately.
Users can select when to release books available for shipment from their Registry. Books may be shipped in multiple packages. If the order quantity or amount qualifies for free shipping according to the terms posted on our site, the shipment will ship for free. Otherwise, the user agrees to pay for shipping.
We will determine in our sole discretion when to release books for shipment that are purchased as part of a Book Fair. Books may be shipped in multiple shipments. Book Fair users may select whether to have books shipped to a single shipping address listed for the fair or directly to fair participants at the address provided in their fair registries, provided that any books that cannot be shipped to participants because an address is invalid or has not been provided will be shipped to the fair’s shipping address 30 days after the Book Fair concludes. If the order quantity or amount qualifies for free shipping according to the terms posted on our site applicable to the relevant Book Fair, the shipments will ship for free. Otherwise, shipping costs will be deducted from the user’s share of Book Fair profits or charged to individual participants. If Book Fair profits are not sufficient to cover shipping, the user agrees to pay for shipping. By creating a Book Fair on our platform and adding your mailing address, you acknowledge that we have the right to ship you items associated with the Book Fair.
Books that have been ordered from a Registry or as part of a Book Fair that are not currently in stock will be placed on backorder and will ship when they are in stock and available. An additional shipping charge may be required for backorders. You can cancel a backorder by notifying us.
If a backorder is canceled, the corresponding book value, not including shipping, will be added to the user’s Registry. We reserve the right to credit any book purchased from or for a Registry to the relevant user’s Book Wallet instead of fulfilling the book. Shipping charges on canceled books are not contributed to a Book Wallet.
Users who create and host a Book Fair may be entitled to receive a portion of the profits generated by such Book Fair, pursuant to the terms posted on our Site pertaining to the relevant Book Fair. These funds will generally be transferred to the user by check, though we reserve the right to use other forms of transfer. Each user is responsible to ensure that the information provided by such user to receive payment, including information for completing a check, is accurate. In completing information to receive funds, a user also certifies that they are authorized to receive funds from the Book Fair. We are not liable for any lost checks or the loss of funds related to the Book Fair. Users agree to provide any necessary documents or forms required in connection with receiving such funds, including tax documents such as a Form W-9.
You acknowlege that we will not withhold or make any required payments in connection with funds and you are responsible for all tax returns and payments required to be filed with, or made to, any federal, state or local tax authority with respect to any funds received from a Book Fair.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, unless a Book Fair user notifies us that the user is a tax-exempt entity, we will collect and submit sales tax on Book Fair sales in jurisdictions where we are required to collect sales tax.
Users who create a Registry or Book Fair agree to our use of anonymized Registry or Book Fair data to improve and promote our Registries and Book Fairs.
Occasionally there may be information on our site or in the Service that contains typographical errors, inaccuracies or omissions that may relate to, among other things, product descriptions, pricing, promotions, offers, product shipping charges, transit times and availability.
