High Risk Activity
 
DVD videos offered through this website include martial arts, boxing, mixed martial arts, weight training, weapons training, self defense, sparring and demonstrations. Participation in any of these activities should be considered a high risk sports activity. Your participation in any of these activities is at your own risk and you expressly and voluntarily assume the risk of death or personal injury sustained while participating in such activities.

Limitations on Use
 
The BushidoFlix service is available only to residents of the United States and persons 18 years of age and older. You hereby certify that you are a resident of the United States and are 18 years of age or older. Although, we feel that martial arts is something that should be enjoyed by people of all ages, in the event your children select videos for rental and/or view the DVDs, you agree to be responsible for their actions and agree they will be bound by the Terms of Use.
 
Care and Return of Rental Merchandise
 
In order to maintain our pricing structure and quality of service, we need to be able to rent the DVDs to others after you are done renting them. So, we need you to take good care of the DVDs, as if they were your own.
 
After you're done watching the DVD, place it back in the white sleeve and protective cardboard, and mail it back to us in the pre-paid return envelope. You agree to secure the package for return shipment to us, to prevent loss of contents or damage. In the event that the return envelope is lost, you agree to mail back the DVD, securely to prevent loss or damage, at your expense.
 
Memberships and Billing
 
To become a member, you must have Internet access, a valid U.S. credit card with available funds, an email address and agree to provide us with complete and accurate information. Our subscription service membership plans allow you to rent DVDs with up to a specified number of titles out at time with no late fees or due dates. Your membership includes first class postage – both ways – pre-paid. At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to limit the amount of DVDs a member receives in any month regardless of plan. Details regarding your membership plan can be viewed in the “My Account” section of the BushidoFlix website.
 
Membership plans and the associated fees can be viewed at Pricing and Plans, and is subject to change at our sole discretion. We will notify you by email in advance of any change in the subscription fee for your membership plan.
 
By starting the BushidoFlix membership, you are expressly agreeing that we are authorized to charge you a monthly membership fee at the current rate plan to the payment method you provided during registration. The membership fee will be billed at the start of each billing period and each month thereafter unless you cancel your membership. All fees and charges are considered fully earned upon receipt of payment.
 
You may change your membership plan at any time by logging into the “My Account” section. If you decide to change your plan, the changes will be reflected on the next billing date.
 
You may cancel your membership anytime by logging into the “My Account” section and submitting a cancellation request. Cancellations with no outstanding rentals are effective immediately. Cancellations with outstanding rentals are effective after all rentals are returned. There are no refunds for partial months. In the event a cancellation request and the Express Returns feature is utilized within three days of your renewal date, we reserve the right to charge your account for the next full month. All outstanding rentals must be returned within 7 calendar days. Failure to return DVDs will result in you being charged for the unreturned items and you hereby authorize us to charge your payment method accordingly. The amount charged would be based on the manufacturer’s suggested retail price less an optional discretionary allowance, which we solely determine.
 
Shipping and Delivery
 
We use first class U.S. Mail to deliver your rental merchandise. Processing and delivery time may limit the number of DVDs you can rent each month. We make our best effort to get your DVDs to you as fast as possible.
