The Service (including, without limitation, any Content, or User Submissions as defined below) is provided only for your own personal, non-commercial use.

9. Registration.

As a condition to using certain aspects of the Service, you will be required to register with Company and select a password and screen name (“Company User ID”). You shall provide Company with accurate, complete, and updated registration information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of the Terms of Use, which may result in immediate termination of your Company account. You shall not (i) select or use as a Company User ID a name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; (ii) use as a Company User ID a name subject to any rights of a person other than you without appropriate authorization; or (iii) use as a Company User ID a name that is otherwise offensive, vulgar or obscene. Company reserves the right to refuse registration of, or cancel a Company User ID in its sole discretion.

You shall never use another user’s account without such other user’s express permission. You will immediately notify Company in writing of any unauthorized use of your account, or other account related security breach of which you are aware. If you access the Service through a third party site or service, you will provide your third party account credentials to Company, and you are consenting to have the information in those accounts transmitted into your Company account, and you agree that you shall only use accounts owned by you, and not by any other person or entity.

10. Fees and Payment.

Company requires payment of fees for certain features of the Service. Should you elect to subscribe to such features (“Subscriptions”), you shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Sites in connection with such features. Company reserves the right to change its price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon prior notice to you. You shall pay for such Subscriptions with a credit card or other payment method accepted by Company (“Payment Method”) that you provided during registration. If you want to use a different Payment Method than the one you signed up for during registration, or if there is a change in your credit card validity, you may edit your Payment Method information by clicking on My Account in your device application. If your Payment Method expires and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue to charge or invoice, and you will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, or, at our sole discretion, we may cancel or suspend your account and ability to access the Service. All fees paid hereunder are non-refundable. As used in these Terms of Use, “billing” shall indicate either a charge or debit, as applicable, against your Payment Method. The fee for Subscriptions will be billed at the beginning of your Subscription term or expiration of your free trial period and at the beginning of each renewal term thereafter unless and until you cancel your Subscription or the account or service is otherwise suspended or discontinued pursuant to these Terms. To see the commencement date for your next renewal period, go to the billing information section of My Account.

We automatically bill your Payment Method periodically, based on the length of your subscription. For example, for a one-month subscription we bill your Payment Method each month, and for a six-month subscription we bill your Payment Method at six month intervals. We will bill you in each payment month on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Subscription. However, if you change your Payment Method, this could result in changing the calendar day upon which you are billed. In the event your Subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, for a monthly subscription, if you became a paying subscriber on January 31, your Payment Method would next be billed on February 28. You acknowledge that the amount billed for each payment period may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your Subscription plan, and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for the corresponding amounts. If Company changes the subscription fee or other charges for Services from time to time, we will give you advance notice of these changes.

11. Rewards Points.

Company may allow you to purchase a Subscription by redeeming points, miles or other rewards (“Loyalty Rewards”) via certain third-parties such as airlines, credit card providers, hotels, other loyalty reward programs, and loyalty program intermediaries and agents that are approved by Company (“Approved Loyalty Provider”). Such a Subscription is a “Rewards Plan”. The full purchase price for a Rewards Plan will be redeemed from your account with the applicable Approved Loyalty Provider according to, and subject to, such Approved Loyalty Provider’s applicable terms of use. Purchases of Rewards Plans are nonrefundable. The purchase of a Rewards Plan through an Approved Loyalty Provider may involve the issuance of one or more codes (“Redemption Codes”) that may be redeemed through the Service. Reward Plans are not redeemable or refundable for cash or other credit, except to the extent the foregoing is prohibited by applicable law. Rewards Plans may not be resold or combined with any other standard, special or free offers, or exchanged for other Company plans. If you have an existing promotional rate plan at the time you redeem a Redemption Code or activate a Rewards Plan, the promotional pricing will be forfeited when the Redemption Code is redeemed or the Rewards Plan is otherwise activated. When you use a Loyalty Reward to purchase a Rewards Plan from the Company, you will be subject to the Approved Loyalty Provider’s terms of service, privacy policies or other binding terms. THE APPROVED LOYALTY PROVIDERS TERMS DIFFER FROM COMPANY’S AND SHOULD BE READ CAREFULLY. Company is not responsible or liable for Redemption Codes that are unredeemed, lost, unused, stolen or used without permission. Rewards Plans are valid only in the United States.

12. Gift Plans.

You may purchase a Subscription as a gift for another person (such a Subscription is a “Gift Plan”). A person who purchases the Gift Plan is a “Purchaser,” and person who receives and redeems a Gift Plan is a “Recipient.” Purchase of a Gift Plan by Purchaser and redemption of the Gift Plan, and any subsequent use of the Service, by Recipient are subject to these Terms of Use. Company must receive valid and accurate email addresses for both Purchaser and Recipient, and Purchaser and Recipient must be at least 18 years old. The full purchase price for a Gift Plan will be charged to Purchaser’s Payment Method at the time of purchase, and all fees paid for Gift Plans are nonrefundable. Company is not responsible if a Gift Plan is lost, stolen or used without permission, or if Company is unable to deliver a Gift Plan because the email address for Recipient provided to Company is invalid or inaccurate. Gift Plans are not redeemable or refundable for cash or other credit, except to the extent the foregoing is prohibited by applicable law. Gift Plans may not be resold or combined with any other special or free offers or exchanged for other Gift Plans. If Recipient has an existing promotional rate plan, the promotional pricing will be forfeited when the Gift Plan is redeemed. Recipient may have only one active Gift Plan at a time. Gift Plans are valid only in the United States.

13. Interactions with Third Parties.

The Service may permit you to link to other websites or resources on the Internet that are not owned or operated by Company, and other websites or resources that are not owned or operated by Company may contain links to the Sites and Service.

You hereby represent and warrant that you have read and agree to be bound by all applicable policies of any Third Party Services relating to your use of the Services and that you will act in accordance with those policies, in addition to your obligations under this Agreement. These other websites are not under Company’s control, and you acknowledge that Company is not responsible or liable for the content, functions, accuracy, legality, appropriateness or any other aspect of such websites or resources.

You further acknowledge and agree that Company shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with the use of or reliance on any such Content, goods or services available on or through any such website or resource.

Your interactions with Loyalty Providers, Participating Publishers and other organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree that Company shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings. If you have a dispute with any Loyalty Provider, Participating Publisher, another use of the Service or any other third party, you understand and agree that Company is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have any such dispute, you hereby release Company, its officers, employees, agents, and successors in rights from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
