In order to join Kaku.ca, customers must be at least 18 years of age or older, be a resident of Canada with a valid Canadian address, and have a valid credit card (in order to join Kaku.ca). You must agree to provide true, accurate and current information about yourself. You also agree to maintain and update your information on the “My Account” page.
Membership Fees and Billing
You may change your membership plan at any time by visiting your My Account page. As a member of Kaku.ca, you agree to pay a monthly membership fee, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of Kaku.ca. You also agree that we are permitted to charge your credit card a monthly membership fee, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of Kaku.ca. Your membership will automatically renew for successive months, without prior notice to you, unless and until you suspend your DVD rental membership and return to Kaku.ca all Outstanding Rentals or we terminate it. You must suspend your DVD rental membership and return all Outstanding Rentals before your membership renews in order to avoid billing of monthly membership fees to your credit card. The membership fee will be billed at the beginning of your membership (following any free trial) and on each monthly renewal thereafter unless and until you suspend your DVD rental membership. Visit “My Account” to see the commencement date of your membership with Kaku.ca and for your next renewal period. We will automatically charge your credit card 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 credit card on the last day of such month. For example, if you became a member on January 31st, your card would be billed on February 28th. All fees and charges are nonrefundable. 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 change your method of payment, use a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your payment information by visiting your My Account page. In the event you fail to pay the monthly membership fee, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of Kaku.ca, Kaku.ca may take all remedies against you to collect such fees owed and may recover from you all costs and expenses incurred by Kaku.ca to collect such fees, including reasonable attorney's fees and expenses and such fees and expenses incurred by Kaku.ca personnel in the collection of such fees.
Please note that upon registering for your free trial, your credit card will be preauthorized for the cost of one month of service. Please note that preauthorization may result in an amount equivalent to the monthly fee for the membership plan that corresponds to your free trial period being reserved on your credit card for a limited time. No charges, however, will be made against the credit card unless you do not suspend your DVD rental account cancel prior to the end of your free trial period.
Right to Cancel by Kaku.ca
Kaku.ca reserves the right, at any time, to cancel the membership of any member with or without reason in Kaku.ca's sole discretion. If such cancellation takes place during a billing period for a reason other than a breach of these terms by the member, Kaku.ca will refund any pre-paid membership for a Partial Membership Period at the time of cancellation.
Upon cancellation of your membership, you will be given seven business days to return any outstanding rentals. Failure to return such rentals will result in your credit card being charged the retail value for such items.
Deliver & Return of DVDs
Kaku.ca uses Canada Post, first class postage pre-paid, to deliver DVDs to and receive DVDs from you. Return postage of rented DVDs is paid by Kaku.ca. Actual delivery times may vary depending on (i) our inventory availability, (ii) your delivery address, (iii) when you place your order, and (iv) circumstances impacting delivery by Canada Post. We will send you an email letting you know when we have shipped your DVD. Kaku.ca is not responsible for delayed or misdirected mail.
Copying or Altering DVDs
You acknowledge that all DVDs are the property of Kaku.ca. You may not copy or alter any rented DVD in any way. You acknowledge that Kaku.ca has no right to grant a license or any intellectual property right whatsoever in the work embodied in any rented DVD or in the performance thereof. You agree to limit your use of all rented DVDs to performing the DVD in a private non-commercial setting. You acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility to obtain all requisite permission from the owner of the copyright if you chose to perform or authorize the performance of the work embodied in any rented DVD in a manner other than a private non-commercial setting.
Fulfilling Rental Requests
DVD Rental requests are fulfilled Monday to Friday. We will send you a confirmation email when you return a DVD and when we send you another DVD. You can view current rental items by visiting My Rental Items.
Caring for Rented DVDs, Damaged Rental DVDs
You agree and undertake to:
i. Handle the DVDs with care so as not to damage them
ii. Not use any type of solution on Kaku.ca DVDs
iii. Never keep DVDs in direct sunlight or heat
iv. Always keep the DVDs in their rental sleeves when not in use
v. To treat the DVDs and their packaging with the utmost care at all times.
vi. To report damaged DVDs to Kaku.ca immediately through your “My Account” page.
Kaku.ca reserves the right to charge the current retail price for any DVD that is not returned to Kaku.ca upon termination of membership or which is returned in a non re-usable condition (reasonable wear and tear excepted). The price charged will equal to the retail price posted on major online retail websites in Canada. Kaku.ca will email you before charging your credit card.
Lost and Stolen DVDs
Occasionally rented DVDs may be stolen in transit. Kaku.ca treats reports of such incidents very seriously, and requires completion of a Stolen DVD Form, to assist authorities in investigating such incidents and to minimize future occurrences. A copy of this form will be provided to the Canada Post Corporation and to police authorities for investigation. In cases where DVDs have been reported stolen, Kaku.ca reserves the right to suspend service until a Stolen DVD Form has been completed, whereupon Kaku.ca may, in its sole discretion, resume service and send a replacement of the Stolen DVD, discontinue service indefinitely, or suspend your membership and charge you the retail price of any DVD that is stolen. Kaku.ca will contact you to discuss this before charging your credit card.
