3.4 Access to Content on DVD & Blu-ray Titles Service
The DVD & Blu-ray Titles Service allows you to rent Discs and be provided with Discs via the mail.
The Content available through the DVD & Blu-ray Titles Service may differ to the Content available through the Subscription Streaming Titles Service, the A la Carte Streaming Services, New Release Streaming Titles Service and Streaming Titles to Own Service.
There are a number of different Subscription Packages which includes the DVD & Blu-ray Titles Service ("DVD Subscription Package") that you are able to choose from that have different entitlements. Your entitlements may be limited to a specific number of Discs within a thirty (30) calendar day payment cycle or limited to a specific number of Discs that you may rent at any point in time.
If you are subscribed to a DVD Subscription Package that limits the number of Discs that you may rent within a thirty (30) calendar day payment cycle, then we will stop providing you with Discs once that Disc limit has been reached.
If you reach your Disc limit during a payment cycle you can elect through the "Account & Settings" section of the Quickflix Website to rent additional Discs for the Transaction Fees set out on the Quickflix Website for those additional Discs or you may elect to upgrade to a different DVD Subscription Package which has a higher Disc limit or does not place a limit on the number of Disc that you watch in a thirty (30) calendar day payment cycle.
The DVD Subscription Package that you subscribe to may also limit the number of Discs that you are able to rent at any one time. Once you have reached this Disc limit we will not send you the next Disc until we receive a returned Disc back from you.
For all DVD Subscription Packages we recommend that you always have at least twenty (20) Discs pre-selected in the My Queue section of the Quickflix Website ("Queue"), so that we are able to dispatch your next available Disc once you have returned a Disc, or once you have notified us that you are returning a Disc. Please note that if there are no Discs pre-selected in your Queue, or none of the Discs pre-selected in your Queue are available, we will not be able to dispatch any further Discs to you, even if you have not reached your Disc limit during the relevant thirty (30) calendar day payment cycle.
From time to time, certain Discs may become unavailable due to loss or damage to the Discs in our library. We always endeavour to maintain sufficient copies of all the Discs listed on the Website but on occasion we may not be able to source new copies of Discs. Where Discs are subject to availability constraints, the Disc is labelled in your Queue with an indication of the availability of the Disc at that point in time.
We use Australia Post for the delivery and return of Discs utilising our own specially designed reply-paid envelopes. Please allow for Australia Post delivery times. We are not responsible for any delay or misdirection of mail. We only send Discs to an Australian postal address and therefore you must have an Australian postal address in order to use this Service.
If you have a DVD Subscription Package you are able to access a function on the Quickflix Website that enables you to notify us that you have returned a Disc. This function was created to reduce the impact of any postal delays you may experience. The earliest you can notify us that you have returned a Disc is twenty four (24) hours after the Disc was sent to you. Once you have notified us that you are returning a Disc, we will send your next available title within two (2) business days of notification. We reserve the right to disable this function if we consider that it is being abused. For example, if the number of Discs you have out and have notified us as returned regularly exceeds the Disc limit for your DVD Subscription Package.
You are responsible for your Discs so please handle them with care. We reserve the right to charge your credit/debit card or PayPal account a minimum of $29.99 per Disc and $39.99 per Blu-ray disc for the replacement value of any Disc as well as an Admin Fee of $10.00 per transaction where:
the Disc is stolen, damaged or lost whilst in your possession;
the Disc is lost in the mail due to incorrect address details being provided by you;
you fail to notify Quickflix within five (5) to fourteen (14) days of dispatch if a Disc has either not been delivered to you, or not been received back by us; or
you cancel your free trial, promotional offer or your DVD Subscription Package and fail to return any Discs you have rented from us within seven (7) days.
All Discs remain the property of Quickflix. You are prohibited from copying or altering the Disc in any manner.
Access to Blu-ray Discs is included in certain DVD Subscription Packages. For Subscription Packages where access to Blu-ray Discs is not included it can be added to your Subscription Package for an additional fee listed on the Pricing & Packages Webpage.
In the event that you have an outstanding account with us that remains unpaid we reserve the right to outsource your debt to a debt collection agent. You will be required to pay all costs incurred in the attempted recovery of any monies owed including debt collection agency costs and solicitor costs on a solicitor/client basis.
As a credit provider, Quickflix may choose to place a default on your credit file if the debt remains unpaid and is in accordance with the rules of credit reporting and parameters required as provided by Veda Advantage.
