Terms & Conditions

Tiny Books for Tiny Folks (hereafter known as “Tiny Books” or “we”) is a membership-subscription based library service and, in registering to use our Library service, you, the Member, (hereafter known as “Member” or “you”) agree to accept our terms and conditions.

1. Your Details
1.1 You agree:
○ To provide Tiny Books with the information needed to create and maintain your registration
○ To inform us if you change your address
○ To inform us if you have updated your payment details
1.2 Please view our Privacy Policy regarding Member details’ usage.

2. Borrowing
2.1 All items must be reserved by the Member by 28th of each month or Tiny Books reserves the right to select the books on behalf of the Member.
2.2 Reserved books will be checked out and sent to the member by week 1 of each month.
2.3 We will notify the Member if there are any changes to the schedule on a best effort basis.
2.4 All items borrowed must be returned by 25th of each month.
2.5 Items returned late will be subject to a fine. Please see 4.Overdue items and Fines section for more information.
2.6 It is the responsibility of the Member to inform Tiny Books of any situation when they need to suspend their services via the Membership Holiday Form (see Membership FAQ).

3. Use of library materials
3.1 Members shall not make unauthorised physical or digital copies of items on loan from Tiny Books for both commercial or non-commercial purposes.

4. Overdue items and Fines
4.1 It is your responsibility to manage your Library borrowing and to return your items on time. Failure to do so means other Library users are delayed in accessing items. Library fines are charged as an incentive to encourage responsible borrowing.
4.2 We help you to avoid fines by sending you an email to let you know if any of your items are due to be returned. If an item does go overdue, we will send you an email to inform you of this. You are required to ensure that we have your up-to-date email address and that your email client’s spam filter will allow the email to be received.
4.3 Any member who fails to return an item on time (as stated in 2. Borrowing) will be fined 10yen/day that elapses before the item is returned. Once we have received the item, we will send you an email informing you of the fine and this amount will be added to your next month’s subscription. For annual members, you will receive an email with the payment options for the fine.
4.4 If you have outstanding fines of more than 1000yen, book borrowing privileges will be put on hold until your fine has been paid.

5. Damage
5.1 It is your responsibility to make sure that books are kept in the best condition for the benefit of all members. If there are any damages done to the book, please inform Tiny Books by email at tinybookstinyfolks@gmail.com. We will assess the damage when we receive the book after the book is returned and inform you of the payment required to repair the book.
5.2 If the book is very badly damaged (such as torn pages, lost pages, water damage, vandalism etc), we will need to replace the book. We will investigate the price of replacement of the damaged item and contact you once this has been calculated to advise you of the payment required and payment options. Please note that this price will include an administrative fee. Once informed of the price of replacement, the damaged item will need to be paid for in full before you can use the Library again.

6. Lost books
6.1 If you have lost a book borrowed from Tiny Books, please inform us immediately at tinybookstinyfolks@gmail.com. We will investigate the price of replacement of the lost item and contact you once this has been calculated. Please note that this price will include an administrative fee. Once informed of the price of replacement, the lost item will need to be paid for before you can use the Library again.

7. Delivery
7.1 We reserve the right to refuse to dispatch items to an address other than the Member’s registered address.

8. Payment
8.1 Members are to pay their dues timely unless they advise Tiny Books via the methods stated in the Membership FAQ section of any request for membership holiday or termination.
8.2 We reserve the right to suspend the provision of the library services to any member until any payment due has been received in full.

9. Termination
9.1 We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the services for any Member without prior notice, if the member is in breach of our terms and conditions.

10. Changes to terms and conditions
10.1 We may revise these conditions at any time and any changes will be notified via our website (www.tinybooksfortinyfolks.com). By continuing to use our services after we notify a change of condition, you are agreeing to these revised terms and conditions of use.
