Terms of Use


Welcome to Michaels™ Custom Invites or invitations.michaels.com (the "Website"). The Website, service and network (collectively, the "Service") are operated by Michaels Stores, Inc. and its corporate affiliates (collectively, "us", "we" or "Michaels"). By accessing or using our Website at invitations.michaels.com, you (the "User") agree that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use ("Terms of Use" or "Agreement"), whether or not you are a registered member ("Member") of the Service.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of these Terms of Use at any time without notice. If we do this, we will post the changes to these Terms of Use on this web page. Any new Terms of Use are effective upon posting and your continued use of the Service after such posting constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Use.

If you do not agree to abide by these or any future Terms of Use, do not use or access (or continue to use or access) the Service. It is your responsibility to regularly review the Terms of Use to determine if there have been changes.

Please read these Terms of Use carefully as they contain important information regarding your legal rights, remedies and obligations.


Eligibility

By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you are thirteen (13) years old or older. You must be thirteen (13) years of age or older to register as a member of the Service or access or use the Service. If you are under the age of 13, you must use an account created by a parent, guardian or teacher, and you must have the explicit permission of a parent or guardian to use the Service. Membership in and access to the Service is void where prohibited.

Term

This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services or are a Member. You may delete your account and end your membership at any time, for any reason by following the instructions on the My Account page. Michaels may terminate your membership for any reason, at any time. Even after termination, your obligations under this Agreement will remain in effect. You understand that termination of this Agreement and your account may involve deletion of your Michaels information from our live databases as well as any Member Content that you have uploaded to the Service or created on the Service using your account. You agree that Michaels will not have liability whatsoever to you for any termination of your account or related deletion of your information or Member Content.

Eligibility and Credit Card Terms

To order any books or other products, you must be at least eighteen (18) years of age or the applicable age of majority in your jurisdiction. You will be required to give us a valid credit card number (VISA, MasterCard, American Express or any other issuer then accepted by us) and associated payment information at the time you order books or any other products hereunder, including all of the following:

  • Your name as it appears on the card
  • The credit card type
  • The date of expiration of your credit card
  • Billing address
  • Any activation numbers or codes needed to charge your credit card.


Michaels™ Custom Invites does not accept cash, checks or any other payment form, although it reserves the right to change this policy in the future. Your credit card issuer agreement governs your use of your designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not this Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that no additional notice or consent is required before Michaels invoices the credit card for all amounts due and payable. By providing Michaels with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Michaels is authorized to immediately invoice your account for all fees and charges due and payable to Michaels as a result of your purchase of any books or other products. You agree to immediately notify Michaels of any change in the credit card used for payment hereunder or in any associated information. Michaels reserves the right, at any time, to change its prices and billing methods for books and other products sold, either immediately upon posting on the Service or by e-mail delivery to you.

Fees and Charges

You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your orders and purchases (including any taxes imposed on your orders and purchases, including, but not limited to, applicable shipping fees, sales, use or value-added taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Fees charged for goods and services may change at any time without advanced notice. Michaels may automatically charge and withhold such fees and charges for orders to be delivered to addresses within any jurisdictions that it deems is required. When you order books or other products for overseas delivery, shipments may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the package with the books or products arrives at the destination that you specified. Any charges for customs clearance shall be borne by you, as Michaels has no control over such charges and cannot foresee the amount charged (if any). You agree that you are the importer of record for goods and services you order and you shall comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.

Disputes

If you have a question or concern regarding payment, refunds or with a credit card authorization, please contact Customer Service for assistance.

Returns

All sales are subject to Michaels™ Custom Invites’ then-current return policies, as posted on the Return Policy & Guarantee page.

Password and Account Security
