16. Reliance on Information Posted
- The information presented on or through the Website is made available solely for general information purposes. We are not making any statement about the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of this information. Any reliance you place on that information is at your own risk. We will not be liable for any reliance placed on those materials by you or any other visitor to the Website, or by anyone who might be informed of any of its contents.
- This Website might include content provided by nonparties, including materials provided by other Users, bloggers, and third-party licensors, syndicators, aggregators, or reporting services. All statements or opinions expressed in these materials, and all articles and responses to questions and other content, other than the content provided by Company, are solely the opinions and the responsibility of the person or entity providing those materials. These materials do not necessarily reflect Company’s opinion. We are not responsible, or liable to you or any nonparty, for the content or accuracy of any materials provided by any nonparties.
17. Changes to the Website
We may update the content on this Website from time to time, but its content is not necessarily complete or up to date. The Website’s materials might be out of date at any given time, and we are not required to update those materials.
18. Information About You and Your Visits to the Website
- Users are liable for Fees for Membership and all taxes. You must provide us with a valid Payment Method. We will bill the Fees to your chosen Payment Method. We may adjust Fees for Memberships at any time. We do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering.
- The Website may offer various types of Memberships of different terms (ex: monthly, three-month, six-month) (each, a “Membership Term”). Each Membership Term offered will have its own Fee indicated during the join process and, except for nonrecurring Memberships, will rebill at the Fee and at the frequency indicated in the receipt sent to the User’s email address. Fees are subject to change due to laws and taxes; if you do not cancel within 30 days, you are considered to have accepted the Fee change.
- Except for nonrecurring Memberships, your Membership will continue for the Membership Term and automatically renew for additional prepaid periods of the same length at the rates in effect at the time you originally signed up until canceled. Users must cancel their recurring Membership before it renews each term to avoid billing of the next term’s Fees to their Payment Method. Until canceled, the User authorizes Company to continue charging the User’s Payment Method to pay: (1) Fees for recurring Membership; (2) all purchases of other products, services, and entertainment provided by the Website; and (3) other liabilities of User to Company.
- If a User’s Payment Method was declined, we may try to process the Payment Method again under the same conditions as initiated by the User, within seven days of the User’s first attempt to purchase that Membership. Where the Payment Method is approved in that circumstance, the User will receive an email confirming the successful completion of their transaction along with their Login details. For recurring Memberships, the User’s next rebill will be attempted on their initial rebill date. We may change the Fee of the rebill or of the initial transaction to a lesser amount with the obligation to continue the User’s recurring Membership at the original rebill Fee, which will take effect as of the next rebill unless the User cancels before that rebill, or at the initial Payment Method Fee to successfully complete the User’s purchase of their Membership. If an unsuccessful recurring payment, we may charge an administrative fee of up to US$2 to maintain an active Membership until the Membership Fee can be processed successfully. At any time, if you have any questions about the rebill Fee or date of your Membership, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You may cancel your recurring Membership at any time by contacting the payment processor identified in the receipt emailed to you or by emailing us at email@example.com. If a recurring Membership is canceled before the renewal date, the User will continue to have access to the Website for the remainder of the Membership Term.
20. Taxes, Billing Disputes, Refund Policy, and Chargeback Policy
- You are responsible for all federal, national, state/provincial, or local sales or use taxes, value-added taxes (VAT), or similar taxes or fees payable with your purchase. If you do not pay those taxes or fees on a transaction, you will be responsible for those taxes or fees if they are later found to be payable on that sale, and we may collect those taxes or other fees from you at any time. If we must collect or pay any taxes with your purchase, we will charge you those taxes at the time of each payment transaction.
- If you believe that we have charged your Payment Method in error, you must notify us in writing no later than 30 days after you receive the billing statement in which the error first appeared. If you do not notify us in writing of a dispute within this period, you waive any disputed charges. You must submit any billing disputes in writing through firstname.lastname@example.org and include a detailed statement describing the nature and amount of the disputed charges. We will correct any mistakes in a bill and add or credit them against your future payments.
- Except as provided by law, Fees are nonrefundable once the Login details have been used on the Website. Nonuse of a Membership or inability of User to access the Website through no fault of Company are not grounds for a refund of Fees. We will not issue refunds or credits for partially used Membership Terms. If you believe exceptional circumstances exist for a refund, please email us at email@example.com. If we issue a refund in our sole discretion, we will issue that refund in the form of a credit to the Payment Method used to make the original purchase. We will not issue refunds in the form of cash, check, or free services. All refunds will be issued within ten days of communication between the User and Company. Issuing a refund in one instance does not entitle you to a refund in the future for similar instances, nor does it require us to issue refunds in the future under any circumstance. This section 20(c) does not affect any statutory right to receive a refund from Company that a User might have under law.
- We carefully investigate all Chargebacks. You must not make unjustified Chargeback requests of your payment card provider. The User will remain responsible for the consequences caused by such a breach of contract. We will review excessive and potentially fraudulent Chargebacks and we may prevent the User from making additional purchases during that review. If we determine that any Chargeback request is fraudulent or was made by the User in bad faith, we may suspend and terminate your Membership or any future Membership you purchase.
21. Linking to the Website and Social Media Features
- You may link to our homepage, on condition that you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it, but you must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval, or endorsement on our part without our express written consent.

23. Warranty Disclaimers
- You acknowledge that we cannot and do not state that files available for downloading from the Internet or the Website will be free from loss, corruption, attack, viruses or other destructive code, interference, hacking, or other security intrusions. You are responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for antivirus protection and accuracy of data input and output and for keeping a means external to the Website for any reconstruction of any lost data. We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by (1) a distributed denial-of-service attack, viruses, or other technologically harmful material that might infect your computer equipment, mobile device, computer programs, data, or other proprietary material because of your use of the Website or any services or items obtained through the Website; or (2) by your downloading of any materials posted on the Website or on any website linked to it.
- Your use of the Website, its content, and any services or items obtained through the Website is at your own risk. Company offers the Website, its content, and any services or items obtained through the Website “as is” and “as available,” without making any warranties, either express or implied. Neither Company nor any person associated with Company is making any statement about the completeness, security, reliability, quality, accuracy, or availability of the Website. Neither Company nor anyone associated with Company states that the Website, its content, or any services or items obtained through the Website will be accurate, reliable, error-free, or uninterrupted; that defects will be corrected; that our Website or the server that makes it available are free of viruses or other harmful components; or that the Website or any services or items obtained through the Website will otherwise meet your needs or expectations.
- To the extent provided by law, Company is not making any warranties, whether express or implied, statutory, or otherwise, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability, noninfringement, and fitness for particular purpose.
- The preceding does not affect any warranties that cannot be excluded or limited under law.
24. Limitation of Liability
- To the extent provided by law, in no event will the collective liability of Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates, and their licensors, service providers, employees, agents, officers, and directors, to any party (regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) exceed the greater of US$250 or the amount you have paid to Company for the Services in the last six months out of which liability arose.
- The limitation of liability set out above does not apply to liability resulting from our gross negligence or willful misconduct or death or bodily injury caused by Services you purchase through the Website.
- The preceding does not affect any liability that cannot be excluded or limited under law.
You shall indemnify Company, its affiliates, licensors, and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses, or fees (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of this agreement or your use of the Website, including, but not limited to, your User Contributions, any use of the Website’s content and services other than as expressly authorized in this agreement, or your use of any information obtained from the Website.
26. Governing Law and Jurisdiction
- Michigan law governs all adversarial proceedings arising out of this agreement or access or use of the Website. This agreement’s predominant purpose is providing services and licensing access to intellectual property and not a “sale of goods.” The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not govern this agreement, the application of which is expressly excluded.
- Except for disputes subject to arbitration in accordance with section 27, as the exclusive means of bringing adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising out of this agreement or the subject matter of this agreement, a party may bring such a proceeding in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan or in a state court of Michigan. Each party acknowledges that those courts would be a convenient forum.
- You and Company are agreeing to give up any rights to litigate claims in a court or before a jury, or to participate in a class action or representative action regarding a claim. Other rights that you would have if you went to court might also be unavailable or might be limited in arbitration. Any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, whether pre-existing, present, or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive, and equitable claims) between you and Company arising from or relating in any way to your use of the Website or the Services, will be resolved exclusively and finally by binding arbitration.
- Arbitration Resolution Services, Inc. (ARS) (or a similar online dispute resolution provider if ARS is not available) will administer the arbitration under its rules available at www.arbresolutions.com, then in effect, except as modified by this section. The arbitrator will have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to arbitrability or enforceability of this arbitration provision, including any unconscionability challenge or any other challenge that the arbitration provision or the agreement is void, voidable, or otherwise invalid. The arbitrator will be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award from the arbitrator will be final and binding on each of the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If you prevail on any claim that affords the prevailing party legal fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to you under the standards for fee shifting provided by law.
- You may elect to pursue your claim in small-claims court rather than arbitration if you provide Company with written notice of your intent to do so within 60 days of the date your claim arose. The arbitration or small-claims court proceeding will be limited solely to your individual dispute or controversy.
- You agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, neither you nor Company will be entitled to join or consolidate claims by or against other Users in court or in arbitration or otherwise participate in any claim as a class representative, class member, or in a private attorney general capacity. The arbitral tribunal will not consolidate more than one person’s claims and will not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction. If any provision of this section 27 is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms will be enforced.
28. Injunctive Relief
The parties acknowledge that breach by either party of the obligations under this agreement could cause irreparable harm for which damages would be an inadequate remedy. Nothing in section 27 will prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, intellectual property, or unauthorized access to our Website, in each case without posting a bond or other security and without proof of actual money damages for the claim.
29. Recovery of Expenses
In any proceedings between the parties arising out of this agreement or relating to the subject matter of this agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party, besides any other relief awarded, all expenses that the prevailing party incurs in those proceedings, including legal fees and expenses.
30. Jury Trial Waiver
Each party hereby waives its right to a trial by jury in any adversarial proceedings arising out of this agreement.
