PRIVACY AND COMMUNICATIONS PREFERENCES
SUBSCRIPTION AND BILLING
You can find the specific details regarding your membership with Docunight at any time by visiting our website and clicking on the “My Account” link.
We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships with different limitations. Some of these promotional memberships may be offered by third parties in conjunction with the provision of their own products and services. We are not responsible for the products and services provided by such third parties. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered membership plans. Unless otherwise stated differently, month or monthly refers to a billing cycle (See “Billing” below). If we alter the offered membership plan price of Docunight as a promotion or permanently, this will not alter the membership plan you are currently on. Docunight holds the right to change pricing on memberships plans, subscription fees, or promotions at any time.
The membership fee will be billed at the beginning of the paying portion of your membership or after the stated free trial period and each period thereafter unless and until you cancel your membership. We automatically bill your Payment Method each period on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying membership. Membership charges are fully earned upon payment. In the event your paying membership began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. You acknowledge that the amount billed each period may vary from for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed periodically in one or more charges. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges. Check with your bank and credit card issuers for details.
If you are eligible and have signed up for a free trial, your Payment Method will be authorized for up to approximately one month of service during free trials; however, no charges will be made against the Payment Method unless you do not cancel prior to the end of your free trial period. We may also periodically authorize your card in anticipation of membership or related charges. Membership fees and charges are fully earned upon payment. 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.
We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the “My Account” link, available at the top of the pages of the Docunight website. If your Payment Method reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your Payment Method information your subscription will be terminated.
A Docunight membership will continue unless you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must cancel your membership before it renews each period in order to avoid billing of the next period’s membership fees to your Payment Method. We will bill the membership fee to the Payment Method you provide to us during registration (or to a different Payment Method if you change your account information). Membership fees are fully earned upon payment.
You may cancel your Docunight membership at any time. Subscriptions based on the payment provider PayPal will be canceled immediately, while subscriptions based on credit/debit cards and/or ACH bank draft will be canceled at the end of the current billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY UNWATCHED MOVIES OR TV SHOWS. To cancel, visit our website and click on “Cancel Membership” on the “My Account” page and follow the instructions for cancellation under the heading “Cancel Membership.”
RIGHT TO TERMINATE
Docunight reserves the right to terminate or restrict your use of our service, without notice, for any or no reason whatsoever.
The availability of movies and videos to instantly watch will change from time to time, and from country to country. The quality of the display of the streaming movies and videos may vary from computer to computer, and device to device, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your Internet connection. Docunight streams a little bit of data as a buffer each time you start a movie or TV show. Frequently starting and stopping movies, videos, songs & TV shows will result in a minor increase to the amount of data Docunight streams to you per hour. In most cases, this will be less than a few minutes worth. You are responsible for all Internet access charges. Please check with your Internet service provider for information on possible Internet data usage charges. Docunight makes no representations or warranties about the quality of your instant watching experience on your display.
CONTENT LOAD TIME
The time it takes to begin watching a video instantly will vary based on a number of factors, including your location, available bandwidth at the time, the movies and videos you have selected and the configuration of your Docunight ready device. For example, high-speed action scenes or special effects at the opening of a movie or video may slightly delay its start time. In addition, you must be connected to the Internet throughout the watch instantly experience.
DEVICE REQUIREMENTS AND LIMITATIONS
To enjoy watching instantly via your supported device(s), your equipment must satisfy certain system requirements. YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO INSTANTLY WATCH ON ONE SUCH DEVICE AT ANY GIVEN TIME. The number of devices and concurrent streams may change without notice to you.
You may instantly watch a movie or video through the Docunight service only in geographic locations where we offer our service and have licensed such movies or videos. The content that may be available to watch will vary by geographic location. Docunight will use technologies to verify your geographic location.
Docunight STREAMING SOFTWARE
Furthermore, Docunight reserves the right to discontinue service and/or support of a software application and will not be responsible for refunding a payment as long as another software application is available to stream Docunight content. We also reserve the right to make available new software applications and will not be responsible for refunding payment because of the software application not being previously available.
END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT
BY USING OUR SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE (1) TO THE DOCUNIGHT END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT AS SUCH MAY BE AMENDED OR ADDED TO FROM TIME TO TIME AND (2) TO RECEIVE, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE OR PROMPTING, UPDATED VERSIONS OF THE Docunight AND RELATED THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE.

If you find that you’re a victim of identity theft and it involves a Docunight account, you should notify Customer Service. Then, you should report this instance to all your card issuers, as well as your local law enforcement agency. Also, you should be mindful of any communication requesting that you submit a 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 Docunight website and not through a hyperlink in an email or any other electronic communication, even if it looks official. Docunight reserves the right to place any account on hold anytime with or without notification to the member in order to protect itself and its partners from what it believes to be fraudulent activity. Docunight is not obligated to credit or discount a membership for holds placed on the account by either a representative of Docunight or by the automated processes of Docunight.

CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
It is the policy of Docunight to respect the intellectual property rights of others. Docunight does not condone the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of movies, videos, songs or TV shows, or other copyrighted content. If you believe your work has been reproduced or distributed in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or are aware of any infringing material available through the Docunight service, please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Docunight, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim (“Notice”). The Notice to Docunight should be addressed to: Kiarostami Foundation, 595 Pacific Ave., 4th floor, San Francisco, CA 94133 (“Notice Address”). If Docunight elects to seek arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Docunight, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Docunight and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Docunight may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Docunight or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Docunight receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than US$10,000.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “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 Docunight and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Travis County, Texas. (If you reside outside of the United States, any arbitration will remain subject to the AAA Rules including the AAA rules regarding the selection of an arbitrator). 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 sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Docunight’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if Docunight did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then Docunight will pay you the amount of the award. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
YOU AND DOCUNIGHT AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Docunight 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.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
