The Marvel Unlimited digital comics subscription service, (the "Marvel Unlimited Service" or “Marvel Unlimited”) is provided to its members by Marvel Worldwide, Inc. or its affiliate(s) ("Marvel"). The Content (defined below) of the Marvel Unlimited Service is accessible via a mobile app for use on compatible devices (the "App") and a website (as of the effective date of these terms, www.marvel.com/unlimited) ("Website"). The Marvel Unlimited Service may also include or offer other products and/or services that may be added by Marvel from time to time.

Please read these terms and conditions of use ("Marvel Unlimited Terms") before using the Marvel Unlimited Service. You agree to these terms and conditions of use during the sign up process and by your subsequent use of, and access to, the Marvel Unlimited Service. If you do not agree with any part of these terms and conditions of use, then you may not use the Marvel Unlimited Service or download or access the App, Website, or any Content and you must cancel your subscription immediately.

These Marvel Unlimited Terms are supplemental to the Marvel Terms of Use ("Marvel Terms of Use"), which are located here and incorporated herein by reference, and you agree to be bound by both such terms of use. If any term in the Marvel Terms of Use conflicts with or contradicts the Marvel Unlimited Terms then these Marvel Unlimited Terms shall control. These Marvel Unlimited Terms together with the Marvel Terms of Use form your agreement with Marvel with respect to your membership and your use of the Marvel Unlimited Service including streaming, downloading and accessing any Content via the Marvel Unlimited Service. The Marvel Unlimited Service, App, and/or Website, together with the Content and any other products or services made available to you as a Marvel Unlimited Service member, is a Disney Service (as defined in the Marvel Terms of Use).

For the purposes of these Marvel Unlimited Terms, “Content” shall mean all audio, video, images, text and other content and experiences made available to Marvel Unlimited Service members.

1. Marvel Unlimited Service Overview

The Marvel Unlimited Service is an automatically renewing subscription-based service that allows members to access a library of select Marvel digital comics on the App and Website. The Marvel Unlimited Service is updated on a weekly basis to add additional digital comics.

The Marvel Unlimited Service is offered at three membership tiers: Monthly, Annual, and Annual Plus. Membership benefits and associated fees for each tier can be found on the Marvel Unlimited Sell Page.

2. Membership & Account Owners

A person who signs up for a Marvel Unlimited Service membership and who provides payment method details and/or redeems a Gift Membership will be the account owner of their Marvel Unlimited Account (each, an “Account Owner”). To become the Account Owner, you must: (i) be a private individual aged 18 years or older; (ii) hold a valid credit card; and (iii) hold a Marvel Insider (https://marvel.com/register) account(“Marvel Account”). Account Owners of Marvel Unlimited Annual Plus Memberships must also be U.S. residents.

The Account Owner is responsible for providing (and keeping updated) true and accurate information during the sign up process and the life of their Marvel Unlimited Service membership. The Account Owner's registered Marvel Account password controls their Marvel Unlimited Account as well as their Marvel Account and must not be shared with anyone else. You must not reveal your payment method details or any password associated with your Marvel Unlimited Account to anyone else for any reason. This will ensure, among other things, that no one else will be able to contact Marvel Customer Service and make changes to your Marvel Account or Marvel Unlimited Account without your authorization.

By clicking the "Place Your Order", "I agree", or any similar button to accept these Marvel Unlimited Terms, by using the Marvel Unlimited Service, or by accessing the Content, the Account Owner agrees and confirms that he/she (i) is a private individual aged 18 years or older and takes responsibility for all access to and use of the Marvel Unlimited Service and the Content, (ii) if signing up for or accessing a Marvel Unlimited Annual Plus membership, is a U.S. resident, and (iii) agrees to be bound by these Marvel Unlimited Terms and any other terms incorporated by reference herein.

3. Auto-Renewal

Upon expiration of the initial subscription term of your membership, your membership will automatically renew for the same duration as the initial subscription term (e.g., one month, one year, or any other term then-offered by Marvel). You can cancel any time after you have signed up by following the instructions set forth in Section 8, but you will continue to have membership access and be charged through the end of your subscription term, at which time you will not be billed again.

Except where prohibited by law, for all automatically renewing subscriptions of less than one (1) year, you agree that Marvel is not obligated to send you any renewal or advance billing notices indicating that your credit card will be or has been charged.

For yearly automatically renewing subscriptions, you agree that Marvel is not obligated to send you any renewal or advance billing notices, other than one notice via e-mail, no less than 30 days and no more than 60 days before the end of the then-current annual subscription term, which indicates: (i) the date on which the renewal will be effective; (ii) sufficient information regarding the credit card being charged for the individual to verify the continued use of such card, without providing full card details; (iii) how to cancel your subscription, (iv) the amount your credit card will be charged at the time of renewal (including taxes, if applicable); (v) the length of the subscription term which the new charge enables; and (vi) the deadline by which you must cancel to avoid any charges including renewal of your subscription.

4. Customer Support

Please check the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) (https://marvel.com/help) first for any questions about the Marvel Unlimited Service including the App. If your question is not answered please contact Marvel Customer Service at 1-844-362-7835 (Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm CT) or email Onlinesupport@marvel.com (Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm CT).

5. Communication Choices & Advertising

Account Owners agree to receive service-related communications from Marvel relating to the Marvel Unlimited Service and Content in electronic form. Marvel may send you emails and in-app messages about your account and about Content and other features of the Marvel Unlimited Service. Marvel may also send notifications to your authorized device/s unless you disable these within the App settings or your device notification settings. Please remember anyone using your authorized device/s will be able to see these notifications.

The Marvel Unlimited Service may contain advertising, promotions, offers and other recommendations for products and services of the Marvel and The Walt Disney Company family of companies.

6. Free or Discounted Promotional Membership

Your Marvel Unlimited Service membership may start with a free or discounted promotional membership (each a “Promotional Membership”). The period of your Promotional Membership is as specified during sign-up (e.g., one month, three months). For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply, as stated in such offer(s). Except as otherwise expressly stated, Promotional Memberships are not available to anyone who is a member in good standing of Marvel Unlimited during the period during which the Promotional Membership is offered. If you become a member as a result of receiving a Marvel Unlimited Gift Membership you will not be entitled to redeem a Promotional Membership during the term of their Promotional Membership. Marvel reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your eligibility for any Promotional Membership offered.

For free Promotional memberships, Marvel may take a payment method from you when signing up to a Promotional Membership for authentication purposes, however, nothing will be charged at that time (with the exception of a temporary hold (of de minimis charge) that may be placed for card validation purposes). Marvel will only begin billing your chosen payment method for monthly or annual membership fees (as applicable) following the end of the free Promotional Membership period, unless you cancel prior to the end of the free Promotional Membership period. You can access details of your membership, including the monthly or annual fee (as applicable) and end date of your free Promotional Membership period and how to cancel in My Account, available to view by signing in on the Website.

You agree that you will not receive a notice from Marvel that your Promotional Membership period is about to end or has ended or that your paid membership has begun. Marvel will continue to bill your chosen payment method on a monthly or annual basis (as applicable) for your membership fee until you cancel. For more information on cancellation see Section 8 below.

7. Membership Fees & Billing

Membership Fees

You hereby agree to pay all charges to your account, including any applicable taxes, in accordance with billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. All charges are based on the applicable U.S. Dollar purchase price plus tax, if applicable, and are subject to foreign exchange rates (if applicable) and other fees that the institution issuing your credit card may impose, including foreign transaction fees.

Your right to use the Marvel Unlimited Service is conditional upon Marvel's receipt of payment. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or if a charge is refunded for any reason, including chargeback, we reserve the right to immediately and without notice, suspend or terminate your access and account. You are required to pay any amounts still owed to us at the time your account is suspended or terminated.

When accessing the Marvel Unlimited Service over a mobile network, you may be using your data allowance. Marvel is not responsible for any network or data charges you may incur in using the Marvel Unlimited Service.

If You Signed up Directly with Marvel on the Website:

Monthly Billing

By starting your Marvel Unlimited Service Monthly membership and providing a payment method, you authorize Marvel to charge you a monthly membership fee at the then-current rate, plus tax, if applicable (the “Monthly Fee”). Marvel will not charge you a membership fee for any period in which you have redeemed a free Promotional Membership of the Marvel Unlimited Service or Marvel Unlimited Gift Membership. In the event that Marvel offers a promotional discount on membership fees, if you have properly redeemed such a promotion Marvel will reduce your membership fee by the appropriate amount for any relevant period.

The Monthly Fee will be charged at the beginning of the paying portion of your membership and each month thereafter unless and until you cancel. Marvel automatically charges your payment method each month on or around the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying membership.. Marvel reserves the right to change the timing of charging for any reason, including, in the event that your payment method is not valid when we attempt to charge it. To view your next renewal date go to My Account on the Website.

Annual Billing

By starting your Marvel Unlimited Service Annual or Annual Plus membership and providing a payment method, you authorize Marvel to charge you an annual membership fee at the then-current rate, plus tax, if applicable (the “Annual Fee”). Marvel will not charge you a membership fee for any period in which you have redeemed a free Promotional Membership of the Marvel Unlimited Service or Marvel Unlimited Gift Membership. In the event that Marvel offers a promotional discount on membership fees, if you have properly redeemed such a promotion Marvel will reduce your membership fee by the appropriate amount for any relevant period.

The Annual Fee will be charged at the beginning of the paying portion of your membership and each year thereafter unless and until you cancel. Marvel automatically charges your payment method each year on or around the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your paying membership. Marvel reserves the right to change the timing of charging for any reason, including, in the event that your payment method is not valid when we attempt to charge it. To view your next renewal date go to My Account on the Website.

Payment Method

You are responsible for keeping your payment method details up-to-date by changing the details in My Account on the Website when necessary.

If your chosen payment method details change or are due to expire during the life of your membership, Marvel may contact you and/or obtain from your payment card provider updated details including your card number, expiry date and CVV (or equivalent).

If a payment is not successfully authorized, due to expiration or otherwise, Marvel reserves the right to terminate your Marvel Unlimited membership.

Refunds & Credits

Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used billing periods. At any time, and for any reason, Marvel may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to any one or more Marvel Unlimited member, at Marvel's sole and absolute discretion and without admission of fault or liability. The provision of credits on one occasion does not entitle you to credits in the future even for similar reasons, nor does it obligate Marvel to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.

Nothing in this section affects your statutory rights.

If You Signed up Through In-app Subscription with a Third Party:

By starting your Marvel Unlimited Service membership through in-App subscription with a third party (e.g. Apple/iTunes) and providing a payment method, you agree to pay a monthly (or such other period specified during sign up) membership fee at the then-current rate (plus tax, if applicable) charged by such third party until cancelled. Such fees are subject to the third party’s pricing policies (including those with respect to exchange rates), which may differ from Marvel’s pricing policies.

Purchases or transactions carried out via the App are subject to these Marvel Unlimited Terms and the third party's current app store terms and conditions of sale (including any applicable usage rules). Important information on the applicable terms of sale, payments, taxes, payment methods, your right to cancel a transaction and when you can exercise such right (where applicable), and the technical steps to conclude a transaction, will be detailed in the third party's terms and conditions.

In order to be billed through the third party you must log in to authenticate your account with that third party for membership purchases. If you are a valid account holder with the third party but under the age of 18 you may sign up for the Marvel Unlimited Service only if your parent’s parental control settings on the third party platform permit you to do so.

Marvel Unlimited Annual Plus memberships are not available for purchase through in-App subscription with a third party.

If you signed up with a third party and are paying your membership fee to a third party, and wish to change your payment method, you will need to do so through that third party, including by visiting your account with that third party. Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used billing periods. Any price changes to the Marvel Unlimited Service will be handled in accordance with the third party's terms and conditions.

Price Changes

Marvel reserves the right to vary the pricing for the Marvel Unlimited Service or any part of the services Marvel makes available to you in any manner and at any time as Marvel may determine in Marvel's sole and absolute discretion. Any price changes that affect you will take effect no earlier than 30 days following email notice to the Account Owner.

8. Your Rights to Cancel Your Membership

You may cancel your Marvel Unlimited membership at any time, which will take effect at the end of your current billing period (or Promotional Membership period, as applicable); you will continue to have access to the Marvel Unlimited Service until the end of your current billing period (or Promotional Membership period, as applicable). Marvel does not provide refunds or credits for partially used billing period. If you cancel your membership during a Promotional Membership period in accordance with the terms of such promotion, then you will not be charged a membership fee, and you will lose your access to the Marvel Unlimited Service upon the expiry of your Promotional Membership period.

How to Cancel If You Signed up for Marvel Unlimited on the Website:

If you signed up for Marvel Unlimited on the Website, then to cancel your Marvel Unlimited Service membership, you must use one of the following methods of cancellation prior to your next renewal date:

  1. Go to My Account on the Website and select “Manage Membership” and follow the on-screen instructions for cancellation; and/or
  2. Call Marvel Customer Service at 1-844-362-7835 (Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm CT); and/or
  3. Email Onlinesupport@marvel.com (Hours of Operation: Monday-Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm CT).

Once you have cancelled in accordance with one of the above methods, your Marvel Unlimited account will automatically close at the end of your then-current billing period (i.e., on your next renewal date), at which time your access to the Marvel Unlimited Service will also terminate. To see when your Marvel Unlimited account will close, go to My Account on the Website.

UNDER THESE TERMS OF USE, IF YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR ANY REFUND FOR THE CURRENT TERM FOR WHICH YOU ARE SUBSCRIBED, EXCEPT WHERE REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

Your Statutory Right to Cancel

In some cases, European law provides an additional legal right to cancel, however when you signed up to Marvel Unlimited you consented to the immediate start of your subscription and by doing so acknowledged that this additional legal right to cancel no longer applies.

This right is additional to, and does not affect, your right to cancel your membership at any time in accordance with the terms above of this section.

How to Cancel if You Signed Up In-App Through a Third Party:

If you signed up with and are paying your membership fee for the Marvel Unlimited Service to a third party (e.g. Apple/iTunes), and wish to cancel your membership (including during your Promotional Membership), you must do so through that third party. Steps to cancel may include visiting your account with that third party and turning off auto-renew for, or unsubscribing from, the Marvel Unlimited Service through that third party. You may also find billing information about your Marvel Unlimited Service membership by visiting your account with the third party you are paying. Please contact that third party to find out how to cancel your membership correctly with them. Marvel is not able to cancel your membership where you have signed up through a third party and Marvel is not responsible to you for any charges you incur where you have not cancelled with them in accordance with their processes.
