Terms & Conditions
1. BINDING AGREEMENT.
The Company is a service provider for selling and distributing a variety of publications and software products on the Site and through subscription. The content provided on the Site may contain information on personal development, leadership, relationships, technology use, and other topics which is not, and should not be, construed as personalized advice.
The Company respects your privacy. No personal information will be gathered on the Site beyond your own submission of your email address for inclusion in the Company’s weekly mailing list. The Company will not use, sell, or distribute your email address for any other purpose. Beyond the Site, the Company also sponsors and sells mobile applications that may require you, of your own will, to provide additional personal information. When you are required to open an account to use or access one of these Services, you must complete the registration process by providing the complete and accurate information requested on the registration form. You will be asked to provide an email address as your user name and to create a password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You may not use the account, username, or password of someone else at any time. You agree to notify the Company immediately of any unauthorized use of your account, user name, or password. The Company shall not be liable for any loss that you incur as a result of someone else using your password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by the Company, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, and representatives due to someone else’s use of your account or password.
The Company offers subscription services for a variety of mobile applications advertised on the Site. Some subscriptions may offer free trial periods while others require immediate payment of monthly or annual fees. To place an order for a subscription, you will be requested to provide your name, email address, a password, billing address, and credit card payment information as part of the subscription process. It is your responsibility to ensure that you read the description and billing agreement for each product carefully before you place an order for that product.
By placing an order for a subscription, you hereby authorize the Company and its merchant provider to charge your credit card in advance for all applicable fees incurred by you or on your behalf in connection with the product or Service you have chosen to use. You are solely responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of any use of your account by you or anyone else using your account. The Company reserves the right to change the amount of, or basis for determining, any fees or charges for services it provides, and to institute new fees, charges, or terms effective upon prior notice to customers. Such new fees, charges, or terms shall not take effect earlier than 30 days after the Company posts such modified fees on the Site or communicates them to you by e-mail. The Company reserves the right to terminate any account at any time for any reason.
If you register for a free trial subscription product, you are giving the Company a pre-authorization to your charge account and you must cancel within the free trial period as described in the product billing agreement if you wish to cancel the subscription and avoid being charged.
After placing an order for a subscription, you will receive a confirmation email with your account and payment information. You will then be able to log onto your account to access your subscription.
Your right to use the subscription service or product is subject to any expenditure limits established by the Company or by your credit card issuer. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or your charge is returned for any reason, including chargeback, the Company reserves the right to either suspend or terminate your access and account, thereby terminating your subscription and all obligations of the Company in this Agreement.
If Customer has reason to believe that Customer’s account is no longer secure (for example, in the event of a loss, theft or unauthorized disclosure or use of Customer’s ID, password, or any credit, debit, or charge card number stored), notify the Company of the problem to avoid possible liability for any unauthorized charges to Customer’s account.
It is your responsibility to notify the Company if your credit card has changed or has expired and to make appropriate changes or your service may be disconnected or interrupted.
If the Company fails to provide access to subscription service from the Site due to strikes, lockouts, labor disputes, embargoes, acts of God, power outage, governmental restrictions, governmental regulations, governmental controls, judicial orders, enemy or hostile governmental action, civil commotion, fire or other casualty, or other causes, then the Company’s performance will be excused for a period equal to that period of the cause for failure to perform. The Company will give you notice within 30 days after the event causing the failure.
