InferAlpha is a subscription based book rental service that allows its subscribers to rent books through its service. To use InferAlpha a subscriber will have to contact www.InferAlpha.com or register on the website. The subscriber can then browse/search books from the list of books available with InferAlpha that he/she would like to read, and add them to his/her Bookshelf. Once payment has been received or we have made an arrangement with the subscriber to pick up the payment at the time of delivery, the first set of books will be delivered to the subscriber at the shipping address provided at the time of registration. The number of books rent out by InferAlpha depends on the plan that the subscriber subscribes to. Once the subscriber is done with the first set of books, he/she can call the customer care at www.InferAlpha.com and ask for a Pick up of Books. The Subscriber may or may not schedule a simultaneous delivery of the next set of books. InferAlpha will pick up the previous set of books from the subscriber’s address, and depending on the subscriber’s choice, deliver the next set of books. The next lot of books will be delivered to them according to their indicated date, but only on receipt of the previous set of books.
Subscribers, registered users and other visitors to the site can also subscribe to the service calling on the customer care number provided on the website.

Subscriptions maybe automatically renewed if requested, and the subscriber will be billed the subscription fee at the beginning of the new subscription period. The subscription becomes active only after realization of the prescribed fee.

In case of your account suspension, you will have to return the books with you within seven (7) days. If you do not clear your dues within 45 days your deposit will be forfeited and membership cancelled.
A subscriber may change plans at any time. Upgrades in plans will only result in billing the difference of the plans and will be effective from the same billing cycle. Downgrades in plans will affect the next billing cycle. No refunds for partial months of use will be credited. Future billing cycles will be billed at the new rate.
Subscribers may keep their rented books longer than intimated in the beginning, after indicating it to InferAlpha, provided the subscriber's account is in good standing and the subscription fee has been paid. If subscription fee is not paid, InferAlpha will ask you to return the books within seven (7) days failing which the cost of the book will be deducted from your deposit.

We take that the service has commenced in full upon payment (either in part or full of applicable charges for the plan) and delivery of first set of books (either in part or full).

InferAlpha handles shipping using our own delivery agents, or in partnership with a logistics provider. Our goal is to deliver the books with highest priority in your Bookshelf. In case a book is not available in our inventory, we will ship the book with next highest priority in your Bookshelf. Please note that our guarantee is on the book title, not book copy. That is, if you request for a particular book, we will send you the copy that is currently in stock. This may or may not correspond with the publisher, book image or publishing date that you have selected. If you wish to only be delivered the book copy that you have selected, please send an email to our customer service. This will however, lower the probability of you getting the books which are listed first on your priority list. At the time of delivery of books, our delivery agent or logistics provider will collect the previous set of books. The Subscriber must return both the previously rented books before receiving the next set of books.
In case a package is returned due to (a) non-availability of the user at the shipping address (b) user failing to return outstanding books while taking a delivery, no delivery shall be made and the cycle will be counted as a delivery.
All books sent to a subscriber are verified to be in a good condition prior to dispatch and condition of each book is recorded in our system. Upon receipt of the books, you must ensure that the books are in good condition. Any damage, if found, must be reported to our representative and conveyed to InferAlpha customer service via email or phone. Upon receipt of the books, we will verify the condition of the book against the condition recorded in our system before dispatch.
If a book is returned to InferAlpha damaged as a result of subscriber misuse, InferAlpha will charge you the market value of each damaged book against the security deposit. If InferAlpha determines that a book was damaged during transit, InferAlpha will not charge subscriber for the damaged book.
In case of books that are delivered to you are not the books you requested or are in a damaged/defective state, we will replace the defective/damaged book picked up from you at no extra cost. However, for this, you need to inform us immediately and no later than 7 days.
