Terms of Service
While not a fan of detailed terms, some stuff just needs to be pointed out. This site is all about fun…but here are the boring legal details and long winded disclosures. Thanks & Have fun!
This is a membership based site. Membership is required to get full access to the PDF plan set downloads and other site resources. Join here.
Membership includes one full access, single user subscription to the product (s) you have selected from the Easy Home Bar Plans private membership site. You are not purchasing the distribution rights to intellectual property contained herein.
These are web-based project plans, instantly view-able and printable from your computer.
Plans are in Adobe Acrobat .PDF format – the free viewer is available on the site.
Access Key provides instant access to the plans download and resource site plus site support for the duration of the subscription period.
The plans are NOT sent by postal mail. That would cost a fortune.
Membership length is two years with optional discount two year extension. You can download and print the plans and save as a hard-copy. You then simply record the document password on the cover of the plan set. Once you do this, you have access to your plans forever.
Lifetime – refers to the plans usage license, not site access. Legacy accounts have 7 year site access lifetime.
Unlimited – refers to the ability to access ALL plans on the site, not an unlimited time frame of site access.
Instant Access – this refers to the instant delivery by digital download nature of the plans. We do NOT send plans by postal mail.
Access Key – refers to the username and password sent to you upon signup. Passwords can be changed in your profile.
Document Password – refers to the password listed below each plan set download link. This password opens the PDF file.
CHBD Login – this is the exact same username and password and your main login credentials. CHBD requires manual login.
Please refer to the FAQ Page for more definitions and answers.
Since 2015, all memberships are for two years of full site access and support. Once membership expires, a discounted anytime renewal for two additional years becomes available. You may continue to renew for as long as you like. You can even skip a few years and as long as your account email still exists. Renewal is totally optional and NOT automatic. Sending us photos of your completed project gives you free extended site access.
All legacy accounts with no login activity after 4 years are marked as abandoned and locked. Additionally, if your email bounced as non deliverable, the account is marked as abandoned. If you opted out of periodic email messages, your account subscription was instantly ended at your request. Abandoned accounts are eligible for a maximum 7 year lifetime from the original signup date. Since the new terms went into effect in 2015, all prior accounts with no activity age out after 7 years. No accounts exist prior to 2005 as that was run by a different entity as barplans.info which no longer exists. Extended site access available to site contributors.
You are only charged once for the Easy Home Bar Plans Membership.
There are no additional automatic charges once you join. Once your subscription expires, it can be optionally renewed. Renewal is NOT automatic and requires your approval.
PayPal payment will be made to Microlinx Technologies LLC. outlet: Barplan.com.
Stripe.com receipt will show payment to Barplan.com.
Always be sure to print or save your receipt for your records as it may be required if you ever forget your access info or change your e-mail address. Only your IP address and time of purchase is logged. We do not store any credit card information on our servers.
If your account becomes disabled or abandoned, your possession of the original receipt will reinstate the account. See reinstatement below.
Mail orders are no longer accepted.
PayPal eCheck Payments:
Any eCheck payments made through PayPal may require the funds to clear the PayPal system before your account is activated. This could take up to 4 business days. Once the eCheck clears, PayPal sends us the IPN code and the account is automatically activated. All other payment types are instantly activated.
Non-receipt of Access Info:
Membership information ( access username and password) is sent by email immediately after completion of payment.
If you do not receive your membership information, chances are that your spam filter has moved the message to a spam folder or box. Barplan.com is not responsible for the action of spam filters or the inability to operate local email systems. We are also not responsible for the action of corporate email filters, firewalls or virus scanners or lack thereof. All information on barplan.com is guaranteed virus free and safe for download.
If you have not received your login information within an hour, please use the contact form to request assistance. Upon login to membership site, all transactions are considered final. See the Support Page for more information on email issues.
It is understood that you may want to show off your bar project for the rest of the world to see. That’s fine and encouraged for completed bar photos. However, if you decided to share photos of the framing details or plan set details and do not include a credit mention or link back to barplan.com, your account may be terminated for breach of confidentiality. Any re-posting of the plan documents in whole or part violates confidentiality and will result in account termination and possible legal action.
As of May 2015 all legacy accounts will begin to age out to the current subscription level. If your account has expired, just renew or contact us with your original sales receipt. Once verified, your account will be unlocked and eligible for discount renewal of $9.95 for two more years site access.
Contributor Expiration Exception:
If you sent us awesome photos or video of your project and it was selected to be displayed on any of the barplan.com site pages (even the gallery), then you are eligible for an endless expiration account. If you contributed photos, please Pro Account Form if you can’t access your account and I’ll personally take good care of you.
Our affiliate program is no longer active. Please remove all affiliate links from your site.
Once the plans site is accessed, the seal is considered broken and no refunds can be issued. All IP addresses are logged and traceable. We review all claims. Simply making a generic or false claim is not acceptable. Why? Because it is too easy to simply purchase, quickly download the plans then demand a refund. If you’ve got a gripe, make it good and truthful. To help you resolve any issues, contact us first.
Ala-Cart Plan Set Ordering
This site does not offer individual plan set or hard copy ordering. However, we are building a new site to handle ala cart orders and hard copies.
The new site will be at www.diybars.com – hopefully ready mid 2017.
