and its associated services are provided to you by Ram Gopal Sharma & Son. By using, visiting or browsing the BookMeABook website, becoming a subscriber of BookMeABook services or purchasing a product from BookMeABook, you agree to be bound by all of the following terms and conditions, whether you read them or not.
About BookMeABook and BookMeABook Membership
The BookMeABook service provides subscribers/customers to rent books online. Customers can browse the online catalog and create their own BookQ & BookShelves. The BookQ is the "Rental Queue" that governs what books you would like to read – and this is what gets shipped to you from BookMeABook. The books customers like to read are then delivered to them & subsequently picked up.BookMeABook recommends that you have at least 10 books in your BookQ.
Customers can choose from the various plans available from BookMeABook. The choice of the plan determines the number of books shipped, frequency of shipment & the rental charges.
For monthly subscribers
, when BookMeABook receives a request for delivery, the books are chosen from the BookQ(governed by your subscription plan) and sent. Once the customer reads the book & schedules a pickup, the next set of books are chosen from the BookQ and sent. Books will be shipped from the BookQ depending on the availability of the book.
After becoming a BookMeABook subscriber, you are responsible for paying periodic subscription fees OR pre-book rental fees according to the then current billing terms. Subscription fees are non-refundable.
A subscriber will be billed a flat fee, plus any applicable sales/service tax, once a month. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of your subscription and on each monthly renewal thereafter unless and until you cancel your membership. We will automatically bill you each month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership. In the event your membership began on a day not contained in a given month, we will bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a paying member on January 31st, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28th. All fees and charges are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. 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.
3. Changes in Membership Plans:
A subscriber may change plans at any time, but no more than once a month. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for membership plan changes.
Your subscription may be cancelled at any time. These cancellations take effect immediately if you do not have any books in your possession. Otherwise, the cancellation will become effective once all BookMeABook books in your possession are returned. If you fail to return the books within seven (7) days, you will be charged the book's actual retail cost. We don't provide refunds or credits for any partial-month subscription periods or unread books. The refund will be given by way of cheque payable in New Delhi.
5. Damaged Books:
All of our books are sent and returned in a protective bag. If a book is returned to BookMeABook damaged as a result of subscriber misuse, BookMeABook will charge you the cost of each damaged book. However, if BookMeABook determines that a book was damaged during transit, BookMeABook will not charge you for the damaged book. However, you should note that a subscriber is allowed only one no-fault missing/damaged book shipment during the course of his or her membership. Any further instances of claimed missing or damaged book shipments will be charged to the subscriber.
6. Automatic Renewal:
Subscription fees are automatically renewed, and therefore the member is liable to pay the monthly subscription fees in a timely manner.
7. Invitations and Special Offers:
Invitations and special offers are available only for first-time BookMeABook subscribers, unless otherwise expressly stated in the offer. Once redeemed, all promotional offers are final and are not eligible for refund or return.
8. Shipping Policy:
BookMeABook manages its logistics in partnership with a logistics provider. BookMeABook will ensure that your order is processed the same day as you place the order (except Sunday). Books will be delivered within 48 hours of placing the order. The books shipped will be governed by the availability of the book in BookMeABook's inventory.
9. Book Queue (BookQ):
We endeavor to ship to you the books listed highest in your queue; however when availability is limited, we may ship you books lower on your queue. Adjustments made to your queue may not immediately impact your next shipment. In certain instances you may have adjusted your queue before you have received a shipment message when in fact a shipment was already processed. The adjustments will, however, impact subsequent shipments.
10. Book Allocation:
BookMeABook reserves the right to allocate and ship books among our subscribers in any manner that we, in our sole and absolute discretion, determine. In addition, we will, in our sole and absolute discretion, determine the quantity of books we purchase for any particular title and the level of staffing and number of shipments to be processed at each distribution centre. As a result, we may not always send you the top choices from your queue, and we may not ship out your next book(s) on the same day that we receive one from you. At present, our goal is to ship you the book(s) listed highest in your queue. Often, on the same day that we receive a book(s) from you, we will ship the next available book(s) from your queue. In certain instances, your next available book(s) will not ship until at least one business day following our receipt of your returned book(s).
BookMeABook reserves the right to request return of any and all book(s) in the possession of Members at any time. Members understand and agree to promptly return any book(s) to BookMeABook upon request, and that failure to do so within seven days of the request makes Members liable for the cost of those book(s) plus 50% of that cost as a handling charge, for which BookMeABook reserves the right to charge the Member's refundable security deposit.
13. Book Content:
BookMeABook has put in effort to create a catalog of your favorite books and categorized them for ease of access. The cover images & book description are procured from third party/publishers and BookMeABook takes no guarantee of the accuracy of such content. You might receive a book that has a cover different from what was shown online. This is because different publishers of the same book use different cover images. Best efforts have been taken to deliver the goods described on the site; the company takes no guarantee that the book will bear the exact cover produced on the site. The books are subject to availability and the presence of multiple copies of the same book from multiple publishers may result in a disparity between the cover shown on the site, and the book delivered. Despite this, the content of the book would be the same. But as they say – a rose by any other name would smell as sweet! The cover might be different but the book will be the same.
