CUSTOMER SERVICE


Thank you for being a member of The Glass Files!


Thousands of work hours have gone into making your experience as pleasant, useful, and satisfying as we ourselves want it to be.

CUSTOMER ACCOUNTS


Registering for a Personal account at The Glass Files is currently free.


Once you're a member, you can choose to 'Create a Family.' A Family is a private member group that you manage and control access to.


Having a Family enables you to invite Family members, designate members of your Family as Historians, manage all Family members, and manage Family media items.


Having a Family account also enables collaboration on identifying and describing items with your entire Family, and gives you complete control over which Family media items are shared with the Glass Files Community, and which media items are shared with the World (ie the public at large on the Internet).


Much like in real life, having a Family account requires you to pay a monthly fee. The earlier you create a Family, the lower your monthly fee will be.


You can also 'Create an Organization.' An Organization is a Family with the special power of being able to sponsor Families. If you are the Host of an Organization, you can invite members to create Families that your Organization will be the sponsor of. This means that instead of the member paying the monthly fee for the Family you sponsored, your Organization will be paying the monthly fee for that Family.


The fee is currently $2 per month for members creating an Organization. To create a Family, the fee is either $2 per month or a one-time fee of $90. This one-time fee gives you eternally free ownership of that Family.



PAYMENT METHODS


We accept all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.



SUBSCRIPTIONS AND CANCELLATIONS


Creating a Family is a Paid Subscription referred to as "The Glass Files Family Service" (premium service) and can be purchased by either (1) paying a monthly subscription fee; or (2) paying a one-time fee; or (3) a pre-payment option giving you access to the The Glass Files Family Service for a specific time period (“Pre-Paid Period”). If you have purchased a Paid Subscription using a Code, your Paid Subscription will automatically terminate at the end of the Pre-Paid Period, or when there is an insufficient pre-paid balance to pay for the Service.


Creating an Organization is a Paid Subscription referred to as "The Glass Files Organization Service" (premium service) and can be purchased paying a monthly subscription fee.


All sales of The Glass Files Family Service or Organization Service are non-refundable and cannot be returned.


When you click on the ‘Create family’ or 'Create organization' button, you agree that your credit card will be charged either $2.00 every month or a $90.00 one-time fee, until you delete the Family or Organization you are creating.


When you register for a Paid Subscription, Trial, or Code online, you consent to get access to The Glass Files Family Service immediately.


Unless your Paid Subscription has been purchased as a Pre-Paid Period, your payment to The Glass Files will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period, unless you opted to pay the one-time fee, or you cancel your Paid Subscription before the end of the current subscription period by e-mailing customerservice@theglassfiles.com


The cancellation will take effect the day after the last day of the current subscription period. You will lose access to The Glass Files Family Service or Organization Service for the Family or Organization account you select to cancel, but you will retain your membership to The Glass Files.
