You can opt-out of receiving these emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the email or by contacting us at info@thebookshelf.ae.

  • OVERVIEW OF SUBSCRIPTION PRODUCTS - When purchasing subscription products (“Subscription Box Products”) via our Subscription Store please note that you are purchasing an auto-renewing subscription to The Bookshelf Subscription Box Product. The only exception to this is if you purchase The Bookshelf Subscription Box Product as a non-renewing gift. All renewing subscriptions continue to renew at the end of their term unless cancelled in accordance with the Cancellation Policy (see below). The purchase of a Subscription Box Product constitutes your agreement to receive (or to have a designated third-party receive) monthly shipments of a book and curated items (“Subscription”, “Subscription Box”, “Subscription Box Product”, “Box”, “Boxes”). Subscription Box Products are available to purchase for various durations (e.g. 1-month, 3-months, 6-months – each a “Subscription Term”).

  • INITIAL PURCHASE & AUTO-RENEWALS - Initial Order: If you pay for your Subscription before the 15th of the month, you will receive your first Subscription Box Product at the end of the same month. If you subscribe after the 15th of the month, you will receive your first Subscription Box Product the following month. Subscription Box Products typically ship out between the 27th and 30th of each month.

  • Auto-Renewing Subscriptions: After your initial order and (barring shipping delays) receipt of your first Subscription Box Product, you will be automatically re-billed (“Auto-Renewal”, “Auto-Renew”, “Renewal”, “Renew”) on the 5th of the month at the end of your Subscription Term (see below). The Bookshelf will continue to ship subsequent monthly Boxes (if paid for via either auto-renewal or as part of a 3 or 6-month Plan) between the 27th-30th of each calendar month, (or the following business day if the projected shipment date constitutes a postal holiday) until your subscription is cancelled. Please note that shipments may be delayed as a result of emergencies, severe weather, vendor issues, natural disasters, or other factors beyond The Bookshelf’s reasonable control.

  • SUBSCRIPTION TERMS (Month-to-Month, 3-month, 6-month) - Month-to-Month Subscription Term: If you purchase a Subscription Box Product with a Month-to-Month Subscription Term, you will pay for your first month's box at the time of purchase. For each subsequent month's box, your subscription will Auto-Renew (i.e. your payment method will be charged) on the seventh (7th) of the month. If the initial Renewal attempt fails, we will continue to attempt the Renewal daily for a maximum of ten (10) days.

  • 3 or 6-Month Subscription Term: If you choose a 3 or 6-month Subscription Term, you will pay for the entirety of the plan at the time of purchase. Your subscription will then Auto-Renew, for the same duration as its original term, on the 7th of the month at the end of its Subscription Term (e.g. if you purchased a 3-month subscription beginning with a March box, you would pay for the March, April and May boxes at time of purchase and your plan would Auto-Renew for another 3 months on June 7th).

  • Changes to Subscription Terms: You can make changes and alterations to your Subscription Terms at any time via your Customer Account. These changes will then be implemented on your next Renewal date. For example, if you are currently subscribed to a Month-to-Month Subscription Term, you can at any time, change/upgrade your plan to a 3 or 6-month Subscription Term. No payment will be taken at the time of this change, however on your next Renewal date you will be billed in full for your new Subscription Term. This also works in reverse (e.g. you can 'downgrade' from a 3-month plan to a Month-to-Month plan).

  • CANCELLATION POLICY - If at any time you wish to stop your subscription from Auto-Renewing, you can cancel your subscription via your Customer Account. Once a subscription is cancelled, you will continue to receive any boxes that are remaining on your plan (i.e. boxes that you have already paid for), but your subscription will no longer Auto-Renew at the end of its Subscription Term. Please note that cancelling a subscription does not prevent the shipment of boxes associated with the subscription, nor does it actuate a refund for the subscription. Concerns regarding any aspect of the cancellation policy should be directed to info@thebookshelf.ae.

  • RETURN POLICY - If you receive wrong, damaged or missing products/items from The Bookshelf, please contact us at info@thebookshelf.ae with details of the damaged or missing items, within (3) days of receiving your order. Photographic evidence of damage is required in order to receive replacement items.

Photographic evidence of damage is required in order to receive replacement items.

  • Delivery Policy - Subscription Box Products typically ship out between the 27th and 30th of each month via local courier. It will take 2 to 3 working days to be delivered. We currently only ship within the United Arab Emirates. The delivery charges are covered by The Bookshelf.

Section 23 – Terms Specific To The Bookshelf Subscription Box Products And Customer Account Information

  • CUSTOMER REGISTRATION & ACCOUNT CREATION - Upon checkout you will be required to register with your email address (“The Bookshelf User ID”) and select a password to use certain Services. This registration process will result in the generation of your own secure account (“Customer Account”), via which you can make modifications to your subscription(s) such as change payment information, change shipping address(es), cancel your subscription etc. In creation or modification of this account you may not use a name or email of another person with the intent to impersonate that person. You shall provide The Bookshelf with accurate, complete, and updated registration information. You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. Any failure to comply with this provision may result in immediate termination of your account. The Bookshelf reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel a user account by its own discretion. If you begin to register for Services or purchase a Subscription Box Product by providing your information on the The Bookshelf website but do not complete your registration or purchase, we may retain your name and email address and send you an email to remind you to complete your registration or purchase, or to provide you with additional offers or details related to the Services. You can opt-out of receiving these emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the email or by contacting us at info@thebookshelf.ae.

  • OVERVIEW OF SUBSCRIPTION PRODUCTS - When purchasing subscription products (“Subscription Box Products”) via our Subscription Store please note that you are purchasing an auto-renewing subscription to The Bookshelf Subscription Box Product. The only exception to this is if you purchase The Bookshelf Subscription Box Product as a non-renewing gift. All renewing subscriptions continue to renew at the end of their term unless cancelled in accordance with the Cancellation Policy (see below). The purchase of a Subscription Box Product constitutes your agreement to receive (or to have a designated third-party receive) monthly shipments of a book and curated items (“Subscription”, “Subscription Box”, “Subscription Box Product”, “Box”, “Boxes”). Subscription Box Products are available to purchase for various durations (e.g. 1-month, 3-months, 6-months – each a “Subscription Term”).

  • INITIAL PURCHASE & AUTO-RENEWALS - Initial Order: If you pay for your Subscription before the 15th of the month, you will receive your first Subscription Box Product at the end of the same month. If you subscribe after the 15th of the month, you will receive your first Subscription Box Product the following month. Subscription Box Products typically ship out between the 27th and 30th of each month.

  • Auto-Renewing Subscriptions: After your initial order and (barring shipping delays) receipt of your first Subscription Box Product, you will be automatically re-billed (“Auto-Renewal”, “Auto-Renew”, “Renewal”, “Renew”) on the 5th of the month at the end of your Subscription Term (see below). The Bookshelf will continue to ship subsequent monthly Boxes (if paid for via either auto-renewal or as part of a 3 or 6-month Plan) between the 27th-30th of each calendar month, (or the following business day if the projected shipment date constitutes a postal holiday) until your subscription is cancelled. Please note that shipments may be delayed as a result of emergencies, severe weather, vendor issues, natural disasters, or other factors beyond The Bookshelf’s reasonable control.

  • SUBSCRIPTION TERMS (Month-to-Month, 3-month, 6-month) - Month-to-Month Subscription Term: If you purchase a Subscription Box Product with a Month-to-Month Subscription Term, you will pay for your first month's box at the time of purchase. For each subsequent month's box, your subscription will Auto-Renew (i.e. your payment method will be charged) on the seventh (7th) of the month. If the initial Renewal attempt fails, we will continue to attempt the Renewal daily for a maximum of ten (10) days.

  • 3 or 6-Month Subscription Term: If you choose a 3 or 6-month Subscription Term, you will pay for the entirety of the plan at the time of purchase. Your subscription will then Auto-Renew, for the same duration as its original term, on the 7th of the month at the end of its Subscription Term (e.g. if you purchased a 3-month subscription beginning with a March box, you would pay for the March, April and May boxes at time of purchase and your plan would Auto-Renew for another 3 months on June 7th).

  • Changes to Subscription Terms: You can make changes and alterations to your Subscription Terms at any time via your Customer Account. These changes will then be implemented on your next Renewal date. For example, if you are currently subscribed to a Month-to-Month Subscription Term, you can at any time, change/upgrade your plan to a 3 or 6-month Subscription Term. No payment will be taken at the time of this change, however on your next Renewal date you will be billed in full for your new Subscription Term. This also works in reverse (e.g. you can 'downgrade' from a 3-month plan to a Month-to-Month plan).

  • CANCELLATION POLICY - If at any time you wish to stop your subscription from Auto-Renewing, you can cancel your subscription via your Customer Account. Once a subscription is cancelled, you will continue to receive any boxes that are remaining on your plan (i.e. boxes that you have already paid for), but your subscription will no longer Auto-Renew at the end of its Subscription Term. Please note that cancelling a subscription does not prevent the shipment of boxes associated with the subscription, nor does it actuate a refund for the subscription. Concerns regarding any aspect of the cancellation policy should be directed to info@thebookshelf.ae.

  • RETURN POLICY - If you receive wrong, damaged or missing products/items from The Bookshelf, please contact us at info@thebookshelf.ae with details of the damaged or missing items, within (3) days of receiving your order. Photographic evidence of damage is required in order to receive replacement items.
