Registration. To sign up for the Platform, we may require you to register for an Account on the Platform (an “Account”) or log in via a third-party authentication connect service (a “Third Party Account”). You must provide accurate and complete information and keep your Account information updated. If you provide any information that is inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or Company has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Company may deny you access to areas and features requiring registration, revoke access to content, and/or terminate your Account, in its sole and absolute discretion.
You shall not: (i) select or use as a username a name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; (ii) use as a username a name subject to any rights of a person other than you without appropriate written authorization; (iii) use as a username a name or mark subject to any intellectual property rights of a person or business unless you have appropriate written authorization; or (iii) use, as a username or real name, a name that is otherwise rude, offensive, vulgar, or obscene. You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Account, and for keeping your Account password and login credentials secure. You may never use another person’s user Account or registration information for the Platform without their written permission. You must notify us immediately of any change in your eligibility to use the Platform (including any changes to or revocation of any licenses from state authorities), breach of security, or unauthorized use of your Account. You should never publish, distribute, or post login information for your Account. You shall have the ability to delete your Account, either directly or through a request made to the Company’s customer service division.
You may establish, maintain, use, and control only one Account on the Platform regardless of the number of emails, devices, or other services you may have. Each Account on the Platform may only be owned, maintained, used, and controlled by one individual. For avoidance of doubt, users may not “co-own” accounts on the Platform. In the event Company determines that you have opened, maintained, used, or controlled more than one Account, in addition to any other rights that Company may have, Company reserves the right to suspend, deactivate, or terminate any or all of your accounts.
Payments. Company may offer the opportunity to purchase access to the Platform by means of one-time or recurring payments (“Subscription”) through an authorized Marketplace Provider. These payments require you to have an active account with a Marketplace Provider and provide a then-current and valid method of payment, such as a credit card or debit card (a “Payment Method”). Payments will be processed by your respective Marketplace Provider and not through Company. Any inquiries related to payments should be directed to your Marketplace Provider. You are responsible for all charges incurred in connection with your payments.
Subscriptions. By selecting a Subscription, you agree to pay the Marketplace Provider a subscription fee on a designated cycle for the Platform (the “Subscription Fee”). Subject to the Free Trials and Promotional Offers section below, the first Subscription Fee will be charged to your Payment Method on the date the Marketplace Provider confirms your Subscription purchase. Thereafter, the Subscription Fee and any applicable tax and service fees will be charged to your Payment Method by your Marketplace Provider on a recurring basis in accordance with your designated cycle.
Billing Cycle. The Subscription Fee will be billed at the time you establish your Subscription and, if applicable, on an ongoing, regular basis unless you cancel your Subscription. Please note that billing is processed by your Marketplace Provider and that billing cycles may vary. Note that the timing of your billing may change (i.e. in the event of a problem with your Payment Method, such as an expired credit card). You should confirm your Marketplace Provider’s billing policies prior to establishing your Subscription.
Subscription Price Changes. Each Marketplace Provider reserves the right to change the price for a Subscription to the Platform in its sole discretion and will be responsible for communicating any price changes to you in accordance with the law.
Updating Payment Method. You may update your Payment Method with your Marketplace Provider at any time by accessing your account with such Marketplace Provider. If at any time the Marketplace Provider is unable to charge your Payment Method for the Subscription Fee due to insufficient funds, expired or invalid account details, or otherwise, you remain responsible for the cost of such Subscription Fee. A change in your Payment Method may result in changes to your prior billing cycle. It is your responsibility to update and maintain the Payment Method associated with your Subscription Fee. In the event your Payment Method is unable to cover the Subscription Fee, each of Marketplace Provider and Company reserve the right to suspend your respective accounts and access to the Platform, until such time as the Payment Method has been updated to permit the Marketplace Provider to charge the Subscription Fee.
Cancellation. You can cancel your Subscription at any time. Please note that if your Subscription has recurring payments you must cancel your Subscription before it renews for a subsequent term in order to avoid being charged for the next term’s Subscription Fee. If you cancel your Subscription, the cancellation will become effective at the end of the then-current term. You will need to cancel your Subscription directly with your Marketplace Provider.
No Refunds. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION. COMPANY DOES NOT PROVIDE CREDIT, REFUNDS, OR PRORATED BILLING FOR SUBSCRIPTIONS THAT ARE CANCELLED MID-TERM. In such a circumstance, you will continue to have access to your Subscription until the end of the term’s billing cycle. Each Marketplace Provider reserves the right to offer refunds, discounts or other consideration in select circumstances at its sole discretion. Please note that each circumstance is unique and election to make such an offer in one instance does not create the obligation to do so in another.
Free Trials and Promotional Offers. The Platform may be made available to you on a free trial basis for a limited time (“Trial Subscription”). The specific duration of the Trial Subscription will be specified in the applicable offer at sign-up. Trial Subscriptions are limited to new Platform subscribers, unless otherwise specified. Your status as a new subscriber to the Platform will be determined by the Marketplace Provider and Company, each in its sole discretion. These Terms apply to any Trial Subscription, unless otherwise specified.
At the time of signing up for a Trial Subscription, you must provide the Marketplace Provider with a valid Payment Method in order to use the Platform during the Trial Subscription period. Your Payment Method will not be charged by the Marketplace Provider during the Trial Subscription Period, however a preauthorization may be used.
UPON THE EXPIRATION OF THE TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION, THE SUBSCRIPTION FEE FOR THE PLATFORM WILL BE CHARGED TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD, UNLESS YOU TIMELY CANCEL THE TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE NOTIFIED THAT YOUR TRIAL SUBSCRIPTION WILL END OR HAS ENDED.
To find additional details about your Trial Subscription, including the date the Trial Subscription ends, please contact your Marketplace Provider directly.
No refunds, adjustments or price protection will be applied to your Subscription Fee in the event of a new/subsequent discount or promotional offering after you sign-up for the Platform. New customers may take advantage of any “new customer” promotion only once. Requirements for a special promotion will be stated at the time each offer is presented. As a condition of these Terms, you agree not to register multiple times for the same promotional offer using multiple names, addresses, email addresses or other means. Any such action shall constitute a violation of these Terms and may result in the termination of your account.

ARBITRATION CLAUSE & CLASS ACTION WAIVER–IMPORTANT–PLEASE REVIEW AS THIS AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to these Terms (including their formation, performance, and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Platform shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the JAMS in accordance with the provisions of its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
You and Company agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Company arising in connection with or relating in any way to any Terms, Policy, or to your relationship with Company as a user of the Platform (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and whether the claims arise during or after the termination of any Terms, Policy, or agreements) will be determined by mandatory binding individual arbitration. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION, AND COURT REVIEW OF AN ARBITRATION AWARD IS LIMITED. There may be more limited discovery than in court. The arbitrator must follow this these Terms and can award the same damages and relief as a court (including attorney fees), except that the arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief benefiting anyone but the parties to the arbitration. This arbitration provision will survive termination of these Terms or any update.
You agree that you shall be liable for any and all fees, costs, and expenses incurred by Company for any dispute, claim, or controversy initiated by you that is dismissed with prejudice or resolved in favor of Company.
If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you. For residents in Canada, arbitration shall be initiated in the County of New York, State of New York, United States of America, and you and Company agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in New York County, New York, in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception–Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
Time for Filing
Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration within ONE (1) YEAR after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission, or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitation period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
Changes to this Section
Company will provide 30-days’ notice of any changes to this section. Changes will become effective on the 30th day, and will apply prospectively only to any claims arising after the 30th day.
For any dispute not subject to arbitration you and Company agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the federal and state courts serving Maricopa County, Arizona. You further agree to accept service of process by mail, and hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.
The Terms and the relationship between you and Company shall be governed by the laws of the State of Arizona without regard to conflict of law provisions.
