The Order Process
You will have the opportunity to review and confirm your order, including delivery address (if applicable), payment method and product details. You will be sent a notice from Turnabout Media when your order and acceptance will be deemed complete and for all purposes to have been effectively communicated to you at the time we send the notice.

The risk of loss in any goods you purchase and the responsibility to insure them passes to you when the relevant goods are delivered.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any order prior to delivery. Some situations that may result in your order being cancelled include system or typographical errors, inaccuracies in product or pricing information or product availability, fairness among customers where supplies are limited, or problems identified by our affiliate credit or fraud departments. Turnabout Media also may require additional verification or information before accepting an order.

Right of Cancellation; Return of Goods
For annual subscriptions, if notice of cancellation is received within the first fourteen (14) days following the first day of initial billing, you will receive a refund of the subscription fee paid. If Turnabout Media refunds your subscription fee, you will still be obligated to pay other charges incurred.
When you purchase a license to access digital content or virtual items, you will be given an opportunity to consent to delivery at the time of purchase. By consenting to delivery, you acknowledge that you have lost the right to cancel and the license purchase fee is non-refundable.
You have the right, within thirty (30) days from the date of your receipt of physical goods, to cancel Turnabout Media’s contract with you and return the goods. This right does not apply to goods stated by Turnabout Media on the Turnabout Media Services to be non-returnable, including audio and video recordings, computer software, and CD’s, DVD’s or other physical media that have been unsealed. If you are returning goods that are not faulty, you may be required to pay for the cost of returning the goods to Turnabout Media and Turnabout Media may deduct a reasonable amount if you use the goods.

[item title=”Additional Provisions”]
Submissions and Unsolicited Ideas Policies
Turnabout Media’s policy does not allow Turnabout Media to accept or consider unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials. In connection with anything you submit to Turnabout Media – whether or not solicited by Turnabout Media – you agree that creative ideas, suggestions or other materials you submit are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and Turnabout Media in any way, and that you have no expectation of review, compensation or consideration of any type.
Claims of Copyright Infringement
Notifications of claimed copyright infringement and counter notices must be sent to Turnabout Media using the following address:
Turnabout Media is only able to accept notices in the languages into which these terms are made available by Turnabout Media.
Turnabout Media will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using the Turnabout Media Services that are reported using the link above, in accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) or, as applicable, other laws. With respect to Turnabout Media Services hosted in the United States, these notices must include the required information set forth in the DMCA and described in detail here.
Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
You and Turnabout Media agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and Turnabout Media or its affiliates, except disputes relating to the enforcement of Turnabout Media or its affiliates’ intellectual property rights. “Dispute” includes any dispute, action or other controversy between you and Turnabout Media concerning the Turnabout Media Services or these terms, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute or regulation, or other legal or equitable basis. You and Turnabout Media empower the arbitrator with the exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability or enforceability of these terms or formation of this contract, including the ability of arbitration of any dispute and any claim that all or any part of these terms are void or voidable.
In the event of a dispute, you or Turnabout Media must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested. You must send any notice of dispute to Turnabout Media, firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and Turnabout Media will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, you or we may commence arbitration. You may also litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.
If you and Turnabout Media do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act. YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY. Arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and its Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. For more information, visit www.adr.org or, in the United States, call 800-778-7879. Arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator may award damages to you individually as a court could, including declaratory or injunctive relief, but only to the extent required to satisfy your individual claim.
Unless the arbitrator finds the arbitration was frivolous or brought for an improper purpose, Turnabout Media will pay all filing, AAA, and arbitrator’s fees and expenses. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if we did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then we will pay you the amount of the award or USD $1,000, whichever is greater, and pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorneys’ fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that you or your attorney reasonably accrue for investigating, preparing and pursuing your claim in arbitration. Turnabout Media waives any right to seek an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses in connection with any non-frivolous arbitration between you and Turnabout Media.
If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you. For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States of America, and you and Turnabout Media agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located there, in order to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither you nor Turnabout Media will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
Choice of Forum
You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these terms or the Turnabout Media Services that is not subject to arbitration shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.
Choice of Law
These terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Virginia and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.
If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
The provisions of these terms which by their nature should survive the termination of these terms shall survive such termination.
No waiver of any provision of these terms by Turnabout Media shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
