Will these Terms ever change?
We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so these Terms may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the www.bangvapor.com website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing.
What about my privacy?
What are the basics of using www.bangvapor.com?
You may be required to sign up for an account, and select a password and username (“BANG VAPOR User ID”). You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself. You may not select as your BANG VAPOR User ID a name that you don’t have the right to use, or another person’s name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission.
You represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and of legal smoking age. If you’re agreeing to these Terms on behalf of an organization or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to agree to these Terms on that organization or entity’s behalf and bind them to these Terms (in which case, the references to “you” and “your” in these Terms, except for in this sentence, refer to that organization or entity) and that nobody at such organization or entity is under the legal smoking age.
You will only use the Services for your own personal, non-commercial use, and not on behalf of or for the benefit of any third party, and only in a manner that complies with all laws that apply to you. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren’t authorized to use the Services. We can’t and won’t be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law.
You will not share your account or password with anyone, and you must protect the security of your account and your password. You’re responsible for any activity associated with your account.
Your use of the Services is subject to the following additional restrictions. You represent, warrant, and agree that you will not contribute any Content or User Submission (each of those terms is defined below) or otherwise use the Services or interact with the Services in a manner that:

A violation of any of the foregoing is grounds for termination of your right to use or access the Services.
What are the terms of sale for the Services?
BANG VAPOR sells Services only to end-user customers who are of legal smoking age only for their own personal, non-commercial use and not for further distribution or resale or for any other commercial or business purpose. Subscriptions and all rights and privileges conferred are personal and non-transferable.
What is the pricing for the Services?
Pricing for Services, including individual purchases and subscriptions, is as set forth on the BANG VAPOR website and as confirmed on the final page of the checkout process. In the event a Service is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information, BANG VAPOR shall have the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for such Service listed at the incorrect price. BANG VAPOR shall have the right to refuse or cancel any such orders whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, BANG VAPOR shall immediately issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the charge. BANG VAPOR reserves the right to change prices for Services at any time.
How can I pay for Services?
BANG VAPOR accepts credit card payments only. You agree to pay all fees charged to your account based on BANG VAPOR’s fees, charges, and billing terms in effect as shown on the payment page at the time that you place an order for Services. You are also responsible for paying any sales and other applicable taxes, duties and the like, as well as shipping and handling charges, that may apply to your purchase of Services. You authorize BANG VAPOR or a third party payment processing service provider that we engage to charge your credit card for any such taxes and charges. All payments shall be made by credit card in advance prior to shipping the Services. If you do not pay on time or if your credit card cannot be charged for any reason, BANG VAPOR reserves the right to not ship any Service and/or suspend or terminate your subscription, if applicable. All prices are quoted in US Dollars and all payments accepted must be in US Dollars.
We, and our third party payment service provider, may receive updated credit card information from your credit card issuer. The disbursement of the updated credit card information is provided to us and our third party payment service provider at the election of your credit card issuer. Neither we nor our third party payment service provider is responsible for the distribution of your credit card information which is at the sole election of your credit card issuer. Your credit card issuer may give you the right to opt out of the update service. It is your responsibility to contact your credit card issuer with regards to your right to opt out of the update service.
How do I renew my subscription?
After you sign up for a subscription service, your credit card will be charged on the same day in which you signed up for each month during which your subscription is active. Your subscription will automatically renew for an additional one-month period on the same day of the month, or the closest applicable date, that you originally signed up, unless you specify a different recurring charge date. We will charge your credit card for the applicable subscription renewal fee and shipping and handling charges, if any, as well as sales and other applicable taxes, duties and the like, that may apply to your subscription.
Can I cancel my subscription?
You may cancel your subscription at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, which email must reference the email contained in your user profile and state that you wish to cancel your subscription. Cancellation requests received prior to your charge date shall be effective that month and any such requests received on your charge date or after your charge date shall become effective in the immediately following month.
What other terms apply to my subscription?
- Package sizes are based on 12ml bottle sizes and not the exact volume of the liquid in the 12ml bottle.
- Promotional codes only apply to the first month’s subscription rate. Therefore, members who choose alternate subscription payment plans will only receive a discount on the applicable rate for the first month.

If you share a User Submission only in a manner that only certain specified users can view (for example, a private message to one or more other users) (a “Limited Audience User Submission”), then you grant BANG VAPOR the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Limited Audience User Submission for the sole purpose of making that Limited Audience User Submission accessible to such other specified users, and providing the Services necessary to do so. Also, you grant such other specified users a license to access that Limited Audience User Submission, and to use and exercise all rights in it, as permitted by the functionality of the Services.
If you share a User Submission publicly on the Services and/or in a manner that more than just you or certain specified users can view, or if you provide us (in a direct email or otherwise) with any feedback, suggestions, improvements, enhancements, and/or feature requests relating to the Services (each of the foregoing, a “Public User Submission”), then you grant BANG VAPOR the licenses above, as well as a license to display, perform, and distribute your Public User Submission for the purpose of making that Public User Submission accessible to all BANG VAPOR users and providing the Services necessary to do so, as well as all other rights necessary to use and exercise all rights in that Public User Submission in connection with the Services and/or otherwise in connection with BANG VAPOR’s business.

Will BANG VAPOR ever change the Services?
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. We may suspend or discontinue any part of the Services, or we may introduce new features or impose limits on certain features or restrict access to parts or all of the Services. We’ll try to give you notice when we make a material change to the Services that would adversely affect you, but this isn’t always practical. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason, in our sole discretion, and without notice.

Account termination may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you decide to terminate your account.

By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.
