Provider may update this Agreement or the Privacy Policy at any time, without notification to you, and you should review this Agreement and the Privacy Policy from time to time by accessing the Site.  Your continued use of the Site and/or the Services will be deemed irrevocable acceptance of any such revisions.  Before you continue, you should print or save a local copy of this Agreement and the Privacy Policy for your records.

In order to enter into this Agreement, you must have reached the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence, and be fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement, and to abide by and comply with this Agreement.  It is your responsibility to ensure that you are legally eligible to enter into this Agreement under any laws applicable to you.  If you accept this Agreement, you represent that you have the capacity to be bound by it.

Intellectual Property Rights

All material available on the Site and all material and services provided by or through Provider, its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, agents, licensors or other commercial partners including, but not limited to, software, all informational text, software documentation, design of and “look and feel”, layout, photographs, graphics, audio, video, messages, interactive and instant messaging, design and functions, files, documents, images, or other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted as well as all derivative works thereof (collectively, the “Materials”), are owned by us or our licensors or service providers, and are protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property laws.

Subject to your compliance with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the term of this Agreement, Provider grants to you a non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited-purpose right to access and use the Materials that we make available to you.  You are not permitted to download, copy or otherwise store any Materials.

If Provider, in its sole discretion and without notice, considers that there is an immediate security or operational risk to the Services or any of its, your or a third party system, then Provider may immediately suspend access to or use of the Services.  The suspension of use and access is not a breach of this Agreement. You acknowledge that the preservation of security, confidentiality and data is paramount.  Provider has no liability to you for suspending the Services under this provision.

This section does not apply to Content; however you agree that any ideas, suggestions, concepts, processes or techniques which you provide to Provider related to the Services, the Site or Provider or its business (“Feedback”) are and will be Provider’s exclusive property without any compensation or other consideration payable to you by Provider, and you do so of your own free will and volition.  Provider may or may not, in its sole discretion, use or incorporate the Feedback in whatever form or derivative Provider may decide into the Site, the Services, its software, documentation, business or other products or services, or any future versions or derivatives of the foregoing.  You hereby assign all rights on a worldwide basis in perpetuity to Provider in any Feedback and, as applicable, waive any moral rights.

For the purposes of this Agreement and the Privacy Policy, “personal information” is any information about an identifiable individual, as defined in our Privacy Policy.

Provider retains the right to use or share any Aggregated Data generated by anyone using the Site or the Services, including our users, for the purpose of enhancing and providing the Services.  “Aggregated Data” means data that does not contain personal information and which has been manipulated or combined to provide generalized, anonymous information.  You are still responsible for any and all personal information that is part of any Content (as defined below).

Your Profile Information and Account

If you sign up for a Provider account (“Account”), you agree that Provider is providing you with one user identification reference that you will use to create a username and password (together, the “User ID”) to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to access and use the Site and Services in accordance with this Agreement.  You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User ID.  That User ID, together with any or other user information you provide, including but not limited to your social media profiles and location, will form your “Profile Information” and allow you to access your Account.  You will provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself, and you agree not to misrepresent your Profile Information.  You represent and warrant to Provider that you have not misrepresented any Profile Information.  You are responsible for any Profile Information that may be lost or unrecoverable through the use of the Site or Services.

Your right to access and use the Services is personal to you and is not transferable by you to any other person or entity.  You agree not to disclose your User ID to any third party.  You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account or under your Profile Information.  If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account or Profile Information, you are responsible for notifying Provider immediately.  It is your responsibility to update or change any Account or Profile Information, as appropriate.

For paid Accounts (each, a “Paid Account”), Provider deems the person under whose name appears on the credit or charge card that pays the charges for the Services to be the owner and controller of the User ID, Profile Information and Paid Account for all purposes under this Agreement.  If a corporate or other organization’s name appears on the credit or charge card, that corporation or organization is deemed to be the owner.  If any dispute arises as to who owns or controls a User ID, Profile Information or Paid Account, the credit or charge card will continue to be charged and you will be responsible to pay for the Services until Provider receives written confirmation from the Paid Account email address confirming a change in ownership and control of the Paid Account.

In the case of any newsletter or other marketing initiatives, you can withdraw your consent to receiving those communications and unsubscribe to any Provider subscriptions at any time by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of such communication. Doing so may have a material impact on our ability to provide any Services to you, and we are not responsible if you do so.

Fees and Renewals

Unless otherwise agreed to by Provider, fees for a Paid Account will be billed in advance for each year and are non-refundable.  There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service or for periods in which your Paid Account remains open but you do not use the Services.

We reserve the right to modify our billing rates at any time upon 30 days written notice by posting such fee changes to the Site or through email notification to you.  You will be liable to pay such modified billing rates.

Term and Renewal

Subject to your payment of applicable fees for a Paid Account, we will provide the Services to you for the period of time that you have paid for such Services (the “Subscription Period”).

At the end of the Subscription Period, your Paid Account subscription will automatically renew for an additional Subscription Period until explicitly cancelled by you as described in the “Cancellation and Termination” section below.

If you purchase any fee-based Services, you agree that Provider, or our third-party service providers, may store your credit or charge card information.  You expressly agree that we are authorized to charge you (i) a fee for any applicable Services for which you have subscribed, billed on a basis of the Subscription Period, (ii) any other fees for Services you may purchase, (iii) any charges for use of the Services in excess of the usage or other limits placed on your use of the Services (and you hereby consent to such charges and agree we are not required to notify you of any such charge in advance) and (iv) any applicable taxes in connection with your use of the Services to the credit or charge card you provide and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts.  If the credit or charge card you provide expires and you do not provide new credit or charge card information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing you and you agree to remain responsible for any uncollected fees.

Trial Program 

From time to time and at our sole discretion, we may offer free or discounted pricing for you to evaluate the use of the current Services that are generally available to customers for a limited period of time (the “Trial Program”).  If you register for a Trial Program, you must decide to purchase the Services within the term of the Trial Program specified by us (the “Trial Period”) in order to continue to use the Services or retain any Content (as defined below) that you have posted or uploaded during the Trial Period. If you do not purchase the Services by the end of the Trial Period, the Services will be unavailable to you.  Once the Trial Period has expired, you agree that our normal billing rates will apply.  You agree to comply with any additional terms, restrictions or limitations (including limitations on the total amount of usage) we impose in connection with any Trial Program.  You may not sign up for multiple Accounts in order to receive additional benefits under any Trial Programs.  We may terminate or suspend any Trial Program at any time without notice or liability and in our sole discretion.  We reserve the right to charge or charge more for any Service or product offered through any Trial Program.

Taxes

You take full responsibility for all taxes and fees of any nature associated with the Services, including any sales tax related to any purchase or sale of services or goods under this Agreement.  When purchasing or selling services or goods under this Agreement, it is your responsibility to determine whether or not sales taxes apply to a transaction and to collect, report and remit the correct amounts to the appropriate authority.  Any tools provided as Materials or in connection with the Services indicating estimated taxes due are for illustration purposes only. You take full responsibility for all taxes and fees of any nature associated with the Services, including any sales tax related to the purchase or sale of services or goods under this Agreement.

Submission of Content

The Site and the Services available thereon enable you to provide or upload content, including but not limited to messages, materials, data, text, music, sound, photos, videos, graphics, applications, code and other information or content (collectively, “Content”), to Provider for the purpose of providing the Services or as otherwise permitted under this Agreement.  You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for all Content you submit, provide or upload and the consequences for submitting, providing or uploading it. 

Provider will use Content you upload solely in connection with providing the Services to you, and for no other reason.  You agree that by uploading, or otherwise providing any Content on or through the Site and/or the Services, you grant to Provider a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, process, display, all or any portion of such Content, solely in connection with providing the Services to you.  This license includes the right to host, index, cache or otherwise format your Content in order to provide the Services.

You represent and warrant that you own your Content or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents and permissions to grant the license set forth herein and that its provision to Provider or Provider’s use thereof will not violate the copyrights, privacy rights, publicity rights, trademark rights, contract rights or any other intellectual property rights or other rights of any person or entity.
