Thank you for visiting HobJoy.com! Please read these Terms & Conditions. They're important to know and understand. Part of our commitment to earning the trust of our customers is being open and transparent about the rules we all agree to and must follow.

If you visit or shop through any of the Sites, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully, because they contain important disclosures and information regarding what we do, the terms of sale when you purchase something from us, and other terms that may affect your legal rights.

HobJoy may also sell products and services directly to you.
Collectively, all forms of interactive services offered by HobJoy, including but not limited to Deals and direct sales, will be referred to herein as “Services” or as a “Service”.
These Terms govern your use of our Sites and all Services accessed through the Sites. These Terms constitute a binding legal agreement (“Agreement,” though we may use “Terms” interchangeably with “Agreement” herein) in electronic form between you and HobJoy. By using the Sites and/or Services, you agree to these Terms. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS, IMMEDIATELY STOP ACCESSING OR USING ANY OF THE SITES AND/OR SERVICES. DO NOT USE OR PURCHASE ANY HOBJOY SERVICES OFFERED BY THE SITES. BY USING THE SITES AND/OR SERVICES, YOU HAVE ACCEPTED THE TERMS.
The Sites are private property. The Sites and/or Services (including past, present and future versions) and all content that are included in, on or that are otherwise a part of the Sites and/or Services (collectively, the "Content", which includes, but is not limited to text, software, photos, video, graphics, music and sound) are owned, controlled or licensed by HobJoy, its subsidiaries or affiliates, Merchants, or other partners.
Reasonable steps have been taken to display accurate Content. However, we cannot guarantee that descriptions about the Services are accurate or complete. All Content is provided for informational purposes only and you are encouraged to read all information presented on labels, warnings, and directions which accompany the Services before use.
Reasonable steps have been taken to display as accurately as possible, the colors and other details of our Services. However, we cannot guarantee that the display of any color or other details through your device will precisely reflect the color or other details of the actual Service.
Your permission to use the Sites and/or Services is conditioned upon your agreement that you:
Subject to your compliance with the Terms, we grant you a limited, personal, nontransferable, nonexclusive, non sublicensable revocable license to access and make noncommercial use of the Sites and/or Services pursuant to these Terms. Further, you are granted a limited, revocable and nonexclusive right to create a hyperlink to the home page of HobJoy.com.
You agree not to reproduce, distribute, create derivative works from, publicly display, publicly perform, license, sell, or re-sell any data, Content, information, software, or Services obtained from or through the Sites without express written consent. Nor may you make any use that exceeds or violates these Terms.
Any of the activities listed below are expressly prohibited and constitute express violations of this Agreement If we, as judged by us in our sole discretion, determine your actions violate these prohibitions or in any way restrict or inhibit other users from using or enjoying any part of the Sites, we may limit your privileges on the Sites and seek other remedies.
You are expressly prohibited from:
Any unauthorized use of the Sites, Services, Content and/or any other contents or materials found thereon shall immediately terminate the permission or license granted by us in these Terms. Your permission to hyperlink to the homepage of HobJoy.com is conditioned upon that its use does not portray us or any of our Sites, Services, Content, Merchants, or other contents or materials found therein in a false, misleading, derogatory or otherwise offensive matter. You may not use any of our logos or other proprietary graphics or trademarks as part of the link without express written consent.
You are required to create an account (an “Account”) in order to purchase any Deal so we can collect information to allow you to pay for your Deals and so we can provide you with easy access to print your Deals, view your past purchases and modify your preferences, or enable us to contact you as necessary.
If you choose to create an Account, you agree to provide only accurate, complete registration information, and you will keep that information up-to-date if it changes. You may only create one Account and you are solely responsible for managing and maintaining the accuracy and confidentiality of your Account. Your Account is non-transferable and may not be sold, combined or otherwise shared with any other person.
When you register, you will obtain unique log-in credentials (a “User ID”). Access to the HobJoy Sites and Services is not authorized by any other person or entity using your User ID and you are responsible for preventing such unauthorized use.
HobJoy relies on User IDs to know whether users accessing the Sites and using our Services are authorized to do so. If someone accesses any of our Sites or Services using a User ID that we have issued to you, we will rely on that User ID and will assume that access has been made by you. You are solely responsible for any and all access to the Sites or use of the Services by persons using your User ID. Please notify us immediately if you become aware that your User ID is being used without authorization.
Individuals and entities whose privilege to access the Sites or use the Services has previously been terminated by HobJoy may not register for an Account unless granted permission by us, nor may you designate any of those individuals to use your Account on your behalf.
Violation of these limitations may result in termination of your Account and, without limitation, forfeiture of any pending, current or future promotional account credits and unredeemed Vouchers in your account. If you commit fraud or falsify information in connection with your use of the Sites or your Account, your Account will be terminated immediately and we reserve the right to hold you liable for any and all damages that we suffer, to pursue legal action through relevant local and national law enforcement entities and to notify your Internet Service Provider of any fraudulent activity we associate with your Account or use of the Sites.
We may cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time.
By purchasing, accepting, printing, using or attempting to use any Service, you agree to these Terms, and/or any Deal Terms at the time of purchase. These Terms apply to all Services, including Vouchers, unless the Deal Terms on a particular Service states otherwise, and except as otherwise required by law. The Deal Terms may restrict things such as returns, refunds, redemption restrictions, as well as other Deal-specific limitations. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the Deal Terms of a Service, the Deal Terms will control, except to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
By placing an order for a Deal, you are agreeing to purchase the Deal you have selected on the terms, restrictions and conditions associated with the Deal. Once you have placed your order, you will receive a confirmation of the Deal and your credit card or other payment mechanism will be charged for the amount of the Deal. If you have purchased a Voucher, you will be provided with a “Voucher Code”, a unique code that can be used at the Merchant in exchange for the product or service advertised in the Deal, as well as redemption instructions. This completes your purchase of the HobJoy Service, but your purchase of the Merchant's product or service is not complete until you redeem the Voucher at the Merchant (there may be additional tax and shipping/handling fees as applicable, which will be charged by the Merchant).
Unless otherwise stated, sales of Merchant or HobJoy Services on HobJoy Sites are considered “AS IS”, “NO RETURNS ACCEPTED” and “ALL SALES FINAL”.
Descriptions of Services advertised by Merchants on the Sites are approved by the Merchants. HobJoy is not responsible for any performance or quality claims associated with the descriptions. HobJoy does not warrant that descriptions of Services or other Content of the Sites is accurate, reliable, current, or error-free.
Merchants may promote products or services that require up-to-date regulatory authorization, license, or certification. HobJoy does not verify, validate, or collect evidence of any regulatory authorization, license, or certification from any Merchant. You should determine for yourself, before purchasing any Service, whether a Merchant is qualified to provide the product or service. The Merchant is solely responsible for the care and quality of its products and services.
HobJoy makes no guarantees that its Deals represent the best available rates nor does it guarantee against pricing errors. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, substitute, suspend, or remove without notice any information related to the Services. HoJoy also reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for Services whose price was incorrectly posted on the Sites as a result of an error. HobJoy will notify you via e-mail if an error occurs. If you had already purchased the Service and the revised price is lower than what you paid, we will charge you the lower price. If the price is higher than what you paid, then we will contact you and offer you the option to pay the higher price or cancel your order for a refund.
We may display discounts or a list price/full price in connection with each Deal. These discounts or prices are determined based upon information provided to us solely by Merchants, which may include the retail price suggested by the manufacturer, supplier or the Merchant, or an estimated price based on standard industry practice. Since the pricing information on which we base our discounts may vary, any discount information that we display may or may not be representative of the prevailing discount in every area or on any particular day.
We may, at our sole discretion, verify your identity before processing a purchase. We may also refuse to process, or may cancel, a purchase as deemed necessary to comply with applicable law or respond to cases of fraud, misrepresentation, or violations of these Terms.
Some Deals are not available for purchase beyond certain geographical and jurisdictional boundaries. HobJoy reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to exclude or otherwise limit the provision of the Sites, the Services or any other product or service, including Vouchers. HobJoy does not represent or warrant that any Service promoted on the Sites will be available for purchase by any particular person.
Some of our Deals are limited in number. Any attempt by you to obtain more than the permitted number of Vouchers specified for a particular Deal, including, without limitation, using multiple or different identities, credit cards, forms, registrations or addresses, will void your purchase and may subject your Account to termination. Whether purchase characteristics constitute an attempt to violate our rules shall be determined at our sole discretion.
If a Deal becomes unavailable after ordering, we will either cancel or not process the order and will notify you by e-mail.
We try to be as accurate as possible by working with our Merchants to display the best information about delivery and shipping. Since delivery and shipping is solely the responsibility of the Merchant, HobJoy does not make guarantees as to the accuracy of the information.
If there is an issue with the delivery of shipment of your purchase, please contact the Merchant directly, as HobJoy does not ever take title to the item(s). After working with the Merchant directly, if you still are not satisfied, please contact us and we may be able to help negotiate a resolution, though there is no obligation for us to do so.
HobJoy is a service provider for the Merchant. The Merchant is the issuer of the Voucher and is solely responsible for redeeming the Voucher. The Merchant is also solely responsible for all products and services it provides to you and for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs it may cause you to suffer, directly or indirectly, in full or in part, whether related to the use or redemption of a Voucher or not, as well as for any unclaimed property liability arising from unredeemed or partially redeemed Vouchers. Unless otherwise indicated in a Deal or other offer, HobJoy is solely the marketer of the Merchant’s products or services, and may from time to time engage third parties or affiliates to administer Voucher management on behalf of Merchants. You hereby irrevocably waive all rights related to, and release HobJoy and its subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, employees and agents from any liabilities arising from or related to any act or omission of a Merchant in connection with your use of a Voucher or the products and/or services it provides in connection with it.
Vouchers have two separate portions that make up the Deal: (i) a paid portion equal to the amount you paid for the Deal (the "Paid Value"); and (ii) at no additional charge to you, a time-sensitive promotional portion for the balance of the value of the Deal if used by the promotional expiration date on the Voucher (the "Promotional Portion").
Unless otherwise stated on the Voucher or required by law, the following additional terms apply to all Vouchers:
The Paid Value of the Voucher will never expire. However, the Promotional Portion of the Voucher will always expire on the date printed or identified on the Voucher. If the Merchant is in a state where it is permissible for the Paid Portion to expire, the Paid Portion of the Voucher will expire five (5) years from the date that the Voucher was issued. In some states, the law may require the Merchant to honor the Paid Portion of the Voucher beyond five years, in which case the Paid Portion of the Voucher will expire in accordance with the applicable law.
Any attempt to redeem a Voucher in violation of these Terms will render the Voucher void.
Redeeming a Voucher with a Merchant may require additional payment of taxes and or shipping and delivery charges as applicable.
Please note that because of the unique nature of the great deals that HobJoy brings to you, cancellations, returns, exchanges and refunds are significantly more restricted than what might otherwise be offered by the Merchant. Unless otherwise provided for in our Returns Policy or the Deal Terms, they aren't allowed.
An order can only be canceled with HobJoy for a full refund if the Voucher or other Service has not yet been redeemed with the Merchant. If, after investigation, it has been determined that the Voucher or Service has not been redeemed, HobJoy will notify you via e-mail and issue a refund.
If the Voucher or Service has been, or was determined to have been redeemed with the Merchant, you should contact the Merchant directly and work with them to handle the return or refund, which is subject to that Merchant's return policy and/or the Deal's Terms. HobJoy never takes ownership title of the Merchant's product or service, so cannot accept returns.
If a product offered by a Merchant is not as it was described in the Deal, your sole remedy is to return it to the Merchant as per their return policies and/or the Deal's Terms.
If a Merchant refuses to honor the redemption of any Voucher within the expiration period, HobJoy will refund the amount paid upon request, or will credit the HobJoy account of the purchaser for future purchases on the Sites.
We reserve the right to refuse to issue a refund and to recover the cost of the return from you in the event that any items you return are not eligible to return based on these Terms, fraud, or the items are found to have suffered damage after delivery to you or have been misused or used other than in accordance with the product directions or instructions.
Refunds issued by HobJoy will be issued within 30 days. If stated, applicable shipping charges and restocking fees may be deducted from your refund. HobJoy will usually refund any money received from you in the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase.
We want you to be satisfied with your HobJoy experience. If You have trouble redeeming your Service for any reason, please contact us so we can work with the Merchant to resolve your issue.

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT HOBJOY, ITS AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, VENDORS OR MERCHANTS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: (A) ANY CLAIMS EXCEEDING THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF FEES THAT YOU PAID US DURING THE SIX MONTHS PRECEEDING THE BRINGING OF ANY CLAIM, OR FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS, WHICHEVER IS LESS OR (B) ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF, INABILITY TO USE OR RELIANCE UPON THE SITES, CONTENT, AND SERVICES.

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless HobJoy and its officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt and expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney's fees) arising from or relating to: (i) your use of and access to HobJoy; (ii) your purchase of any Services; (iii) your violation of any term of these Terms or this Agreement; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including, without limitation, any copyright, property or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that any User Submissions submitted by you causes damage to a third-party. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive the termination of this Agreement and your use of the Sites and/or Services.
You are solely responsible for your interactions with Merchants of the Sites. To the extent permitted under applicable laws, you hereby release HobJoy from any and all claims or liability related to any product or service of a Merchant, any action or inaction by Merchant, including Merchant’s failure to comply with applicable law and/or failure to abide by the terms of a Voucher.
HobJoy reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor or take action regarding disputes that you may have with other users, customers or any Merchants. To the extent the law permits, you release us from any claims or liability related to any Content and/or User Submissions posted on the Sites and from any claims related to the conduct or speech, whether online or offline of any other users of ours or any Merchants. You agree to waive California Civil Code Section 1542 (if you are a California resident), and any similar provision in any other jurisdiction (if you are a resident of such jurisdiction), which states: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
We will do our best to and make all reasonable attempts to resolve any disputes that you have with HobJoy. If we are unable to resolve the issue, you agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating in any way with this Agreement, the Sites, or the purchase or redemption of a Voucher or other Services, shall be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except for matters that can be taken to small claims court in your local jurisdiction. This agreement and any arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), and conducted by a single arbitrator pursuant to the applicable Rules and Procedures established by the AAA (“Rules and Procedures”).
You agree further that: (i) for any claim that could otherwise be brought in small claims court, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on written submissions and, if the arbitrator deems it appropriate, a telephonic hearing. If the claim exceeds what can be recovered in a small claims court, and the arbitrator deems a face-to-face hearing is appropriate, the hearing will be conducted at a location determined by AAA pursuant to the Rules and Procedures (provided that such location is reasonably convenient for you), or at such other location as may be mutually agreed upon by you and HobJoy; (ii) the arbitrator shall apply North Carolina law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (iii) that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative basis; and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (iv) in the event that you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, HobJoy will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and with the exception of subpart (iii), if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid, unenforceable, illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal, or conflicting provision were not contained. If, however, subpart (iii) is found to be invalid, unenforceable, or illegal, then the entirety Arbitration provision shall be null and void. Neither you nor HobJoy shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute.
Any claim or dispute between you and HobJoy that arises out of this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of North Carolina, without regard to its choice of law rules and without regard to conflict of law principles, except that the arbitration provisions contained herein shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
Hobbies are about creating something personal and unique, or investing a personal interest in something. As such, we also recognize the importance of intellectual property.

We reserve the right at all times to change the Terms and the Terms of this Agreement, and any such modifications will become effective once they are posted to the Sites.
