By accessing or using any part of the website or web application, you agree to become bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access Novelize or use any of its services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by Novelize, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms. Novelize is available only to individuals who are at least 13 years old.
If you create an account on Novelize, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the website. You must immediately notify Novelize of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. Novelize will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
If you post material to Novelize, post links on Novelize, or otherwise make (or allow any third party to make) material available by means of Novelize (any such material, “Content”), you are entirely responsible for the content of, and any harm resulting from, that Content. That is the case regardless of whether the Content in question constitutes text, graphics, an audio file, or computer software. By making Content available, you represent and warrant that:
By submitting Content to Novelize for inclusion in Novelize, you grant Novelize a world-wide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt and publish the Content solely for the purpose of displaying your Content to you. If you delete Content, Novelize will use reasonable efforts to remove it from the Website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the Content may not be made immediately unavailable.
Without limiting any of those representations or warranties, Novelize has the right (though not the obligation) to, in Novelize’s sole discretion (i) refuse or remove any content that, in Novelize’s reasonable opinion, violates any Novelize policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable, or (ii) terminate or deny access to and use of the Website to any individual or entity for any reason, in Novelize’s sole discretion. Novelize will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid.

Payments will be charged on a pre-pay basis on the day you sign up for a Subscription and will cover the use of that service for a monthly subscription period as indicated. Subscription fees are refundable on a case by case basis.

You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. Novelize disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from your use of non-Novelize websites and webpages.

Novelize will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material. Novelize will terminate a visitor's access to and use of the Website if, under appropriate circumstances, the visitor is determined to be a repeat infringer of the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Novelize or others. In the case of such termination, Novelize will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to Novelize.
