PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY.  IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS, AS WELL AS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS.  THESE TERMS REQUIRE THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS.  IT ALSO IMPOSES A LIMITATION ON THE TIME TO BRING CERTAIN CLAIMS AGAINST JTV.

BY ACCESSING WWW.JTV.COM, OTHER JTV WEBSITES, LINKED SITES, JTV’S MOBILE SITE OR MOBILE APPS THE “WEBSITES”) OR ORDERING PRODUCT(S) FROM JTV, YOU ARE AGREEING TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (THE “AGREEMENT).  IF YOU  DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE AGREEMENT, YOU CANNOT ACCESS OR USE THE WEBSITES OR ORDER FROM THE WEBSITES OR JTV’S TELEVISION NETWORK (THE “NETWORK”).  LIKEWISE, IF YOU HAVE MADE A PURCHASE FROM JTV, YOU HAVE AGREED TO THIS AGREEMENT.  

Use of the Websites and Network. Use of the Websites and ordering from the Network are restricted to individuals who are either age 18 or over, or those between the ages of 13 and 18, who are acting with the permission of a parent or guardian. By using any of the Websites or ordering from the Network, you represent to JTV that you are in one of these age categories.

You hereby agree to abide by any and all laws, statutes, ordinances, rules and regulations concerning your use of any of the Websites and/or the Network. As a condition of access to and use of the Websites and/or the Network, you warrant to JTV that you will not access or use any of the Websites or the Network for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement.

If you would like, you may register on www.jtv.com  (and other Websites as permitted) by creating an account. In order to register, we will require that you provide certain information, which may include your name (not an assumed name), valid address, valid email address and valid phone number. You are responsible for providing JTV with updated contact information. JTV will rely on the most recent information provided by you in order to contact you.

You should take all reasonable steps to maintain the security of your account and password. Your password is for your personal use only and may not be used by any third party, even with your permission. You are solely responsible for any and all actions taken under your password on any of the Websites. You agree to be financially responsible for all of your use of the Websites and the Network.

Mobile Site and Applications (“Apps”). You may also access the Websites and mobile platforms from your mobile phone or other device via JTV’s Mobile Site or Mobile Apps (the “Mobile Services”), including the ability to research products and place orders. JTV does not charge for this access, but your mobile carrier’s normal data, Internet, text messaging (SMS), and other service fees and charges apply to your use of, and access to, the Mobile Services. You are responsible for all charges and fees from your mobile carrier. Do not use the Mobile Services while driving. The Mobile Services may not be compatible with all mobile devices and carriers. If you have installed the Mobile App on your mobile device, you may receive “push” messages from JTV even when the Mobile App is not active, unless you “opt out” of receiving such messages. You agree that JTV may communicate with you by SMS, MMS, or other electronic means and that certain information about your usage of the Mobile Services may be communicated to JTV. Data about your location may be transmitted to JTV in order to provide you with certain information such as the JTV broadcast channel in your area. JTV does not guarantee that the Mobile Services will be available at all times or in all areas. Unfortunately, no data transmission via a mobile device can be guaranteed to be 100% secure; accordingly, you acknowledge that your use of the Mobile Services, including the transmission of personal information, is at your own risk.

Price and Ordering. All prices shown on the Websites and the Network are quoted in United States Dollars. In addition to the price for goods and services, JTV will add charges for shipping and handling and also sales tax (where required by law) to all orders. JTV reserves the right without prior notice to discontinue or change specifications and prices on products and services offered on the Websites and the Network without incurring any obligation to you. Descriptions of, or references to, products or services on the Websites and/or the Network do not imply endorsement of that product or service, or constitute a warranty, by JTV.

JTV reserves the right to decline or cancel your order, or any portion of it, for any reason.  For example, JTV may cancel an order because the number of items in inventory is insufficient to fulfill all orders. Similarly, you have the right to cancel your order for any reason until your order has entered the fulfillment process. After that time, you may obtain a refund by following our refund policy.   JTV reserves the right to limit the order quantity on any item and to refuse service to any customer without prior notification.  

In addition, in the event that a product or service is listed at an incorrect price for any reason, including, without limitation, due to supplier pricing information, typographical error, or any other error, JTV shall have the right to refuse or cancel orders placed for the product when it was listed at the incorrect price, regardless of whether the order has been confirmed and your  method of payment has been charged. If you have already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, JTV shall promptly issue a credit to your method of payment in the amount of the incorrect price.

Video content about an item, including recorded programming, is offered only to provide information about the features of that item. It may not reflect present prices, promotional offers or availability.

Stretch Pay™ Installment Payment Program (“Stretch Pay™"). StretchPay™ allows you to purchase certain items by paying a deposit and making installment payments over a specified amount of time. JTV will designate any item that is eligible for StretchPay™ (an “SP Eligible Item”) with a graphic or other indicator on its broadcast and on one of the Websites. JTV will also designate the deposit and the number of installment payments that will be accepted for each SP Eligible Item.

The amounts of the deposit and the installments will be calculated as follows. The product price will be divided by the deposit and number of monthly installments. Shipping and handling, applicable taxes and all services (including, without limitation, Jewel Safe™ warranties, appraisals and sizing) will be added to the deposit amount. In some instances, the product price cannot be paid in precisely equal payment amounts. When that occurs, the deposit may be adjusted appropriately, usually only by a few cents, to make sure the purchase price is paid in full.

The following example demonstrates how the amounts of the deposit and each installment will be calculated. A customer orders a $250 tanzanite ring through a three payment StretchPay™ installment offer. Shipping and handling is $3.95, and the customer wants an appraisal that costs $50. The deposit payment would be $137.29 ($83.34 + $3.95 + $50). The two monthly installment payments would be $83.33 each.

The following methods of payment can be used for SP Eligible Items: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card and JTV Preferred Account (each referred to as an “SP Eligible MOP”).

By choosing to use StretchPay™ on any SP Eligible Item, you authorize JTV to charge your SP Eligible MOP for the deposit on the day the SP Eligible Item ships. An appropriate number of installment(s) will be charged every 30 days thereafter until the price of the SP Eligible Item is paid in full.

If any charge for an SP Eligible Item is declined, we may resubmit it the number of times permitted by payment card rules. If the charge is declined after being resubmitted as permitted by the payment card rules, we may charge you reasonable costs of collection. In order to avoid declines, you agree to provide us with updated information if the number changes on your SP Eligible MOP or the card expires, and you authorize us to charge updated card information that we may obtain from other sources.

Disputes concerning your participation in the Stretch Pay™ Program (including past due payments) are subject to JTV’s Disputes Policy contained in these Terms and Conditions.

You must choose to participate in StretchPay™ at the time you order an SP Eligible Item. StretchPay™ cannot be used with an existing order or on any item that is not an SP Eligible Item.

By purchasing any SP Eligible Item, you agree to be bound by JTV’s Terms and Conditions, including the above terms and conditions for StretchPay™. You also agree that to the extent required by law, by purchasing any item from JTV, through placing an order with our call center, providing your debit/credit card number, providing other identifying information, by ordering on one of our Websites and/or any other actions to effect an order, you have provided your electronic signature agreeing to JTV’s Terms and Conditions and otherwise agree to JTV’s Terms and Conditions.

You can use a JTV Gift Card or your Brilliant Cash Rewards (“GC/BC Balance”) to make the first Stretch Pay payment (your deposit).  If your GC/BC Balance won’t cover your first payment on your Stretch Pay™ purchase (and the difference is more than $1), you may simply apply your GC/BC Balance to the first payment, and we’ll charge your method of payment for the remaining amount. For example, if your deposit payment is $100 and your Gift Card balance is $40, we’ll reduce your Gift Card balance by $40 and charge your method of payment for what’s left over ($60).

If your GC/BC Balance is larger than the amount of the first payment, we’ll need to add one small step--charging your method of payment for $1. This will allow us to set up your method of payment for the future installments.  We’ll also need to add this step if you want to use your GC/BC Balance to make the first payment and the combined balances exceed the amount of that payment.  

Here’s an example of how this will work.  Nadine is purchasing a $500 item on Stretch Pay™.  She’ll have a total of five payments of $100. Nadine has $75 in her Brilliant Cash Rewards account and a $50 JTV Gift Card.  She wants to use them both for her first payment.  We’ll reduce her Brilliant Cash Rewards balance by $75.  We’ll then reduce her JTV Gift Card by $24 and charge her VISA card for $1. At that point, Nadine will have made her first StretchPay™ payment, and she’ll still have $26 left on her JTV Gift Card.  Her remaining StretchPay™ installments will be charged to her VISA card.

Shipping. The risk of loss and title for all products purchased by you and shipped by JTV pass to you upon JTV's tender of the products to the carrier for delivery by the carrier to your specified delivery address. The risk of loss and title for all products purchased by you and shipped directly by one of JTV’s vendors pass from such vendor to you upon such vendor's  tender of the products  to the carrier for delivery by the carrier to your specified delivery address. Notwithstanding the agreement that risk of loss for any package passes to you upon delivery to the carrier, to accommodate our customers, JTV will assume responsibility for any damage or loss in transit or for non-delivery, provided that JTV receives a written notice of claim within the earlier to occur of (i) forty-five (45) days from the order date, (ii) thirty (30) days from the shipment day, or (iii) twenty (20) days from the date when the shipment was delivered to your specified delivery address. JTV’s assumption of responsibility for damage or loss in transit or for non-delivery terminates if a written claim is not timely received by JTV. In any event, JTV’s responsibility is limited to either replacement of the merchandise, or at JTV’s sole option, return of the purchase price and shipping charges. Once the package is delivered to your specified delivery address, JTV’s assumption of responsibility for non-delivery terminates. Any package signed for at your specified delivery address or delivery at your specified delivery address is verified in writing by the carrier shall be conclusively deemed delivered to your specified delivery address.
