Kotoba Kards reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time by posting a notice of such modifications in the relevant section of the Website, by email to the last email address provided by you, or by posting a notice in any other conspicuous manner that Kotoba Kards deems sufficient. Your continued use of the Services will signify your acceptance of the changes to these Terms. Each time you utilize the Services, such use will constitute acceptance of these Terms, including any amendments or updates that Kotoba Kards may have made from time to time.

If you do not agree to all of these Terms, then do not continue to utilize the Services.


By using the Services, you affirm that: (1) you are at least 18 years of age (or have reached the age of majority if that is not 18 years of age where you live) OR you have reviewed these Terms with your parent or guardian and he or she has agreed to these Terms on your behalf and takes full responsibility for your compliance with these Terms (except that children under 13 years old are not allowed to use this Website); (2) you are a legal resident of a country where your access to and use of the Website are permitted; (3) you represent that you are fully able and competent to agree to, abide by, and comply with these Terms; (4) you have read and agree to these Terms and the terms of our Privacy Policy (located at https://kotobakards.com/privacy-policy/); and (5) the foregoing was true at all times during your use of the Services, even if your use began prior to the effective date of these Terms.

Only individuals who have registered for a Kotoba Kards account, provide certain information (e.g., a valid email address), and agree to these Terms are eligible to use the relevant Services. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your username and password and for all activities that occur on or through your Kotoba Kards account. However, if you allow others to access your Kotoba Kards account, these Terms, as well any specific consents you may have provided to us, also applies to their access, use, and disclosure of information.

You agree that we may take steps to verify the accuracy of the information you provide.


When purchasing your subscription to the Services, you may be presented with different plans or options (each a “Service Tier”). Different Service Tiers or other offerings may be subject to differences in pricing, usage rules, eligibility, restrictions, features, and device availability.

Your subscription to the Services includes enrollment into an ongoing/recurring payment plan. Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of the disclosed billing period, unless cancelled in accordance with the instructions for cancellation below.

Payment will be charged to your chosen payment method at confirmation of purchase and at the start of every new billing period, unless cancelled. We will keep your detailed payment information, such as credit card number and expiry date, on file. You are responsible for keeping your payment details up-to-date by changing the details in your account settings. Where your details change or are due to expire, we may obtain or receive from your payment provider updated payment details including your card number, expiry date and 0/V (or equivalent). This enables us to continue to provide you access to the Services. You authorize us to continue to charge your card using the updated information. You authorize us to charge any payment method associated to your account in case your primary payment method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some payment methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your payment method. Check with your payment method service provider for details.

Your “billing period” is the interval of time between each recurring billing date and corresponds to the term of your subscription. The length of your billing period will depend on the Service Tier that you chose when you signed up for the Service. Where applicable, charges for one or more Services may be prorated for any partial month of service. To see your next recurring billing date, log in to your account and view your account details. You acknowledge that the timing of when you are billed may vary, including if your subscription began on a day not contained in a given month (e.g. if you have a monthly subscription and became a paying subscriber on January 31, your payment method would be billed next on February 28), due to free trials and other promotional offers, gift card redemptions, credits applied, or changes in your subscription or payment method. We may also offer you the ability to pause your subscription for a specified period of time. If you do not cancel before the end of the pause period, billing will resume automatically.

We reserve the right to change our pricing. In the event of a price change, we will attempt to notify you in advance of the change by sending an email to the email address you have registered for your account. If you do not wish to accept a price change, you may cancel your subscription in accordance with the instructions included in that email and below. If you do not timely cancel your subscription, your subscription will be renewed at the price in effect at the time of the renewal, without any additional action by you, and you authorize us to charge your payment method for these amounts. We will not be able to notify you of any changes in applicable taxes. You are responsible for all third-party Internet access charges and taxes in connection with your use of the Services. Please check with your Internet provider for information on possible Internet data usage charges.

Your subscription to the Services may begin with a free trial. Availability of a free trial is not guaranteed and, if one is available, is only available on the specified terms of the free trial. Eligibility for free trials may vary based on factors including the Service Tier selected, how recently you redeemed a free trial, and whether the Service Tier is part of a combined offering. Certain limitations may also exist with respect to combining free trials with any other offers. Your first payment will be charged to your chosen payment method immediately following the free trial, unless cancelled in accordance with the instructions for cancellation below. You can cancel your subscription at any time before the end of your free trial. We provide notice of the terms of the free trial at the time you register and you will not receive a separate notice that your free trial is about to end or has ended, or that your paid subscription has begun, unless required by law in particular jurisdictions or instances. We may also offer, in our sole discretion, promotions (e.g., a promotional price, bundled subscription, device-specific offer or gift card) subject to promotional terms disclosed during your sign-up or in other materials provided to you. We will begin billing the same payment method we otherwise have on-file for your subscription at the then-current, non-promotional price after your promotion ends unless you cancel prior to the end of your promotion or unless otherwise disclosed.

You can cancel your subscription at any time before the end of the current billing period, free trial or promotion. Cancellation will take effect at the end of the current billing period unless otherwise disclosed. If you cancel, you will continue to have access to the Service through the end of your current billing period, unless you are subscribed through a free trial, promotional code or other credit, in which case cancellation may be effective immediately. If you modify your subscription to switch from one Service to another Service during your billing period, you may not have continued access to your original Service. If you cancel, including if you switch your billing to a third-party, you will forfeit any service, referral, or redeemed gift card credits. To cancel your subscription to the Services, log into your Hulu account and follow the instructions on your account page.

Payments are nonrefundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used billing periods. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members (“credits”). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
