Evite reserves the right to place restrictions on the use, expiration, redemption or timing of any Credits that are offered for free.
Unused/Abandoned/Forfeited Evite Postmark Credits
If you have not accessed your Evite Postmark account for a period of at least 24 consecutive months, then, you direct Evite (or its third party designee) to donate the then current dollar value of those Credits to a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) charity in your name, which may be a donation in the name of a collective group, such as "Former Evite Members" that does not expressly include your name.
If Evite terminates your Evite Postmark account for cause, including due to your violation of these Terms of Service, all unused Credits that remain in your Evite Postmark account at the time of termination will refund the then current dollar value of those Credits (as determined by the most current per credit purchase cost available on the Evite Service) to you, either through a credit to your charge card, credit to your Paypal account, check mailed to your most current mailing address or such other reasonable process as determined in Evite's sole discretion, less a fee of Twenty-Five Dollars ($25) to cover the cost of processing such refund. If there is less than Twenty-Five Dollars ($25) of Credit value remaining in your account, Evite will not seek any reimbursement from you but we will simply zero out the account. In the event that Evite fails in its attempt to refund any such amounts and is unable to locate you within five (5) business days after attempting to contact you through your most recent contact information, you agree that you direct Evite (or its third party designee) to donate the then current dollar value of those Credits to a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) charity in your name, which may be a donation in the name of a collective group, such as "Former Evite Members" that does not expressly include your name.
Termination of Evite Postmark
Evite may elect to stop offering the Evite Postmark service at any time in its sole discretion without notice to you. If there are unused Credits that you originally paid for in your account (i.e. that were not provided to you for free) at the time that Evite ceases operating the Evite Postmark service, Evite will refund the then current dollar value of those Credits (as determined by the most current per credit purchase cost available on the Evite Service) to you, either through a credit to your charge card, credit to your Paypal account, check mailed to your most current mailing address or such other reasonable process as determined in Evite's sole discretion.
In the event that Evite fails in its attempt to refund any such amounts and is unable to locate you within five (5) business days after attempting to contact you through your most recent contact information, you agree that you direct Evite (or its third party designee) to donate the then current dollar value of those Credits to a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) charity in your name, which may be a donation in the name of a collective group, such as "Former Evite Members" that does not expressly include your name.
