Welcome to GameFly. The GameFly.com Web site and the GameFly service are owned and operated by GameFly, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "GameFly","we" or "us").
We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to make changes from time to time (with or without notice) in how we operate our service.
If you use the GameFly.com Web site or the GameFly service, you represent and warrant that all information you supply to GameFly is complete and accurate. You expressly agree that GameFly may rely on the information you provide, and hereby release GameFly from any and all liability arising from incomplete or inaccurate information supplied by you in connection with the GameFly Web site or service. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, including your password, and for restricting access to your computer. You also agree not to impersonate any other person while using the GameFly.com Web site. By using the GameFly.com Web site, you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. It is also your responsibility (at all times) to provide and maintain an accurate and working e-mail address, delivery address, telephone number, current credit card and billing information. We reserve the right to place any account on hold at anytime (with or without notification to the member) in order to protect us from what we believe to be fraudulent activity.
Free Trials/Trial Memberships
We offer free trials and trial memberships of the GameFly service to allow customers to become familiar with the many benefits of the membership plans we offer. These trials are available to new (first-time) customers only, limited to one per household, and cannot be combined with any other offer. This limited introductory trial offer is only valid in the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. A valid credit card is required. WE AUTHORIZE THE CARD IN THE AMOUNT OF $20 IN ORDER TO VERIFY THE ACCOUNT. We receive no money from this transaction, even if your bank or credit card company temporarily holds the funds in your account.
GameFly will begin billing your credit card for a monthly membership fee (plus any applicable taxes) on the first day following the end of your trial period. YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR TRIAL PERIOD TO AVOID HAVING YOUR CREDIT CARD CHARGED.
During the trial period, customers will not be eligible to receive free shipping on game purchases and will not accrue GameFly Rewards.
Credit Card Billing – Membership Fees
As a GameFly member, you agree that we are permitted to charge your credit card on a monthly basis for your membership fee (plus any applicable taxes) and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of GameFly.com. The membership fee will be billed in full on the first day of your paid membership and on each monthly anniversary thereafter, unless and until you cancel your membership. If your billing date lands on a day not contained in a given month, you will be billed on the last day of that month. For example, if your paid membership began on August 31st, your next billing date would be September 30th.
GameFly is not responsible for any additional bank fees, interest charges, finance charges, overdraft charges, or other fees resulting from charges billed by us. WE DO NOT GIVE PRO-RATED REFUNDS IF CANCELLATION IS INITIATED DURING THE MIDDLE OF A BILLING CYCLE. We also reserve the right to change our fees, but we will notify you in advance if we do so.
We use reasonable efforts to ship your new rental game as soon as we receive the prior one you returned in our warehouse or receive notification from the USPS that you placed a game in the mail. We use reasonable efforts to ship used game purchases within 1 business day after receiving your order. We currently ship six days per week (Monday through Saturday) using USPS first class mail. We do not ship during USPS holidays. We will send you an e-mail when we have received a returned game and another e-mail when your new game has been shipped.
Lost, Unreturned and Damaged Games
You agree to allow us to charge your credit card for the current retail or replacement price of a game, whichever is higher, in the following situations:
* If we do not receive a game within 7 days of canceling your free trial or paid membership (an unreturned game), unless the following conditions are met:
1. you can document that the game has been received by GameFly by using shipping with a tracking method
2. we determine that you have sent us the exact game rented to your account
3. the game is in good working order
* If we do not receive an unplayable game within 7 days of your reporting it to us as unplayable;
* If you have lost a game and reported it to us as lost; or
* If you have damaged a game (whether or not you reported it to us as damaged)
We recommend that you use shipping with a tracking method to return your games after canceling your account.
If we charge your credit card for an unreturned game and you wish to receive a credit, the game must be returned in playable condition via USPS registered mail within 30 days of the date of the sale. After 30 days, all sales are final.
If the number of lost and/or damaged games on your account become excessive, we may place your account on hold or terminate your membership.
If an overdue account is assigned for collection, you agree to pay all reasonable collection costs, attorney fees, and court costs incurred. It is further agreed that all overdue accounts shall bear interest at the maximum rate allowed by law.
Used Game Purchases
If a game that you purchase from GameFly does not work (and it has not been damaged by you or a third party) and you notify us within the first 30 days after the sale date, we will, as your sole remedy, either replace it or refund your money. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. We also reserve the right to limit quantities. Dealer orders will not be accepted without prior written permission.
Despite our best efforts, a small number of items on GameFly.com may be mispriced. If we discover a mispricing, we will do one of the following:
* If an item's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and ship you the item.
* If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will (at our discretion) either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
Free Shipping Eligibility
You must be an active paying rental member (not in your free trial period) to receive free shipping on game purchases.

Gift certificate recipients will need a valid credit card to activate their gift membership. The recipient’s credit card will only be authorized. It will not be charged. Unless the recipient cancels prior to the end of the gift membership period, GameFly will begin to bill the recipient's credit card for monthly membership fees (plus applicable taxes) at the completion of the gift membership period.

WE DO NOT GIVE PRO-RATED REFUNDS IF CANCELLATION IS INITIATED DURING THE MIDDLE OF A BILLING CYCLE.

GameFly Referrals Program
We may, from time to time, offer you the opportunity to earn rewards by referring friends to try the GameFly service ("GameFly Referrals Program"). Participation in a Referral Program may require you to submit personal information about you and your friends, such as name and e-mail address. By participating in a Referral Program, you agree to receive communications from GameFly, and/or from our partners that operate and maintain the Referral Program, with regards to your participation in the Referral Program. The following guidelines shall apply to your participation in any Referral Program:
1. Users may only earn one (1) reward for completing the requirements of the GameFly referral program.
2. Only one (1) new GameFly account per household will count towards earning a reward. If multiple referrals originate from the same household based off of originating IP address and/or credit card billing or shipping address submitted by the referred users they will be counted as a single referral credit towards earning a reward.
3. Users must remain GameFly members for a minimum of 1 monthly membership fee charge in order to receive credit for their subscription in the GameFly Referrals Program.
4. You may not submit multiple e-mail addresses and/or multiple credit card numbers to set up GameFly accounts in an attempt to earn a reward or an additional reward.
5. You may not participate in a Referral Program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulations.

7. Credit for referrals can only be given out for those referrals who participate using their unique referral link.
8. You may not use Spam to obtain referrals. You may not acquire referrals through unsolicited e-mail to persons unknown to you or through usenet or message board postings, where the postings are unrelated to the topic of discussion or otherwise violate the terms of the site.

GameFly Tunes Music Downloads
This feature is an enhancement to your GameFly membership and is not part of the video game rental services agreed to at registration. GameFly may choose to remove the music download service at any time without prior warning. GameFly is not required to provide alternate means of acquiring the music tracks featured if the user is unable or unwilling to download files to their personal computer. The contents of the GameFly Tunes music downloads are provided "as is."

We will make every effort to screen music provided before making it available to download, but assume no liability or responsibility for any of the content in the songs provided.
Federal law limits your liability for unauthorized charges to your account. The Fair Credit Billing Act (FCBA) states that your credit card company (creditor) cannot hold you liable for more than $50 in the unlikely event a fraudulent charge occurs on your account. GameFly will pay up to $50 of your liability if your credit card is used fraudulently at GameFly.com.
We will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at GameFly.com while using our secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with the FCBA reporting rules and procedures
In cases of unauthorized credit card use within a household that results in game purchases, the game must be returned in playable condition via USPS registered mail within 30 days of the date of the sale. After 30 days, all sales are final. In cases of unauthorized credit card use within a household that result in game memberships, we will credit up to one month of service if the games are returned in playable condition via USPS registered mail within 7 days of the date you notify us.
