Terms of Service
I’m not a fan of detailed terms, but here is the nitty-gritty on what we provide and how membership works. Thanks & Have fun!
End User License Agreement (EULA):
This site provides home bar plans and designs via digital download. A small access fee is required to download the PDF based plan sets and other site resources. Join here.
Paid site access includes one single user lifetime license to use the plans(s) you have selected from the Easy Home Bar Plans 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. The rest of this document includes the detailed terms of service of this EULA (end user license agreement).
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. The use of the CHBD is completely optional and not required.
Please refer to the FAQ Page for more definitions and answers.
Membership is for two years of full site access and support. Once membership expires, a discounted anytime renewal for two additional years is 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 and email still exists. Renewal is totally optional and NOT automatic. Sending us photos of your completed project can also give you free extended site access for two more years.
You are only charged once for the Easy Home Bar Plans Membership.
There are no additional automatic charges once you join. Renewal is NOT automatic and requires your approval.
PayPal payment will be made to 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.
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.
Legacy accounts (those who joined prior to 2015) with no login activity after 4 years or bounced email are locked and 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 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 use. Any re-posting of the plan documents in whole or part violates our copyright and can result in account termination and legal recourse.
The affiliate program is back in operation. Make 20% ($3.99) on each referral sale. All members are automatically enrolled. Just provide your PayPal address for commission payment. Read affiliate program terms.
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.
