Many of 247’s Services are subscription-based (“Subscription”) and require initial and periodic payment via debit or credit card. You should review the information provided about the Subscription during the registration process. You agree that if you purchase a Subscription, you are responsible for paying any and all charges relating to your Subscription until you elect not to renew the Subscription. Subscriptions renew automatically for the same time period as the previous Subscription period at the rate then in effect. Your renewal date is set forth on the “Plans” section under the “My Account” section of the 247 website. This means that at the end of the Subscription period, we will charge you automatically for the next Subscription period to guarantee uninterrupted benefits. The debit or credit card you designated at registration will be charged no more than 24 hours prior to the expiration of the then current Subscription period. If you want to avoid renewing a Subscription, you agree that you must cancel 72 hours prior to the end of the then current Subscription period. If you sign up for a free trial, you must cancel 24 hours prior to the end of your free trial to avoid automatic charges associated with beginning your Subscription. You may cancel a free trial or elect not to renew a Subscription by emailing email@example.com, which is staffed between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM (CT) Monday - Friday.
All Subscription fees, including renewals, are non-refundable. Subscribers must be 18 years old or have the permission of a credit card holder over 18 years old.
You agree to provide true and accurate information about yourself during the registration and Subscription process, including correct name and address as well as email address, to facilitate any contact 247 may need to have with you. Failure to do so may result in termination (see below).
Passwords and Access
You are responsible for safeguarding your account information, including your username and password for signing in to the Services. You agree that, except in the case of a lost or stolen card, you are responsible for any charges associated with the use of your account and/or Subscription.
Termination of Services
You acknowledge that 247 may, in its sole discretion, terminate any or all of the Services, including your access to the Services, your ability to post User-Generated Content on the Services, or your Subscriptions, if 247 believes that you have violated the terms of this Agreement in any way. You agree that any such termination may be done without prior notice and may be done without refund of any unused time on Subscriptions or other Services.
In addition, you agree that 247 and/or its employees, contractors, publishers or other third parties, may ban or blacklist you from certain areas of the Services or from posting any and all forms of User-Generated Content on the Services, regardless of your Subscription status. In such an event, your Subscription fees remain non-refundable.
Please note that the accounts of repeat offenders will be terminated and such users will not be permitted to open new accounts with 247.
Limitation of Liability
You expressly agree that your use of the Services is at your sole risk. The Services are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. 247, its officers, directors, employees, agents, partners, affiliates, publishers, and licensors (the “247 Parties”) expressly disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. The 247 Parties make no warranty that (1) the Services will meet your requirements; (2) the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or free of errors; (3) the information in or on the Services will be accurate or reliable; (4) the quality of any products, services, information or other material purchased or obtained by you through the Services will be meet your expectations; (5) your messages, data or information, in whatever form, including User-Generated Content posted by you on the Services, will not be lost or corrupted; (6) any errors will be corrected. You are solely responsible for any damage to your computer or loss of data that results from the use of our Services or the display of Ads on our Services. No statement, whether written or oral, obtained by you from any 247 Party, or anywhere on the Services, will create any warranty not expressly stated in this Agreement. In any jurisdiction that does not accept the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, liability of the 247 Parties will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law. To the extent that any part of this section conflicts with any other part of this Agreement, then this section will override that other part of this Agreement. You agree that the 247 Parties will not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if the 247 Parties have been informed of the possibility of such damages), resulting from (1) the use or inability to use the Services; (2) the cost of getting substitute goods and services resulting from any products, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through or from the Services; (3) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (4) statements or conduct of anyone on the Services; or (5) any other matter relating to the Services. If, notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement, any 247 Party is found to be liable to you for any damage or loss which arises out of or is any way connected to your use of the Services, liability of the 247 Parties shall in no event exceed the greater of (1) the total of any subscription or other fees with respect to any service or feature of the Services paid in the 12 months prior to the date of the initial claim made against 247 or the 247 Parties, or (2) US$100.00.
You agree to protect and fully compensate the 247 Parties from any and all third-party claims, liability, damages, expenses and costs (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from your use of the Services, or violation of this Agreement by you or any other user of your account (whether or not authorized).
