You are solely responsible for your use of any such websites or Third Party Content and compliance with any applicable third party terms and conditions.
You must maintain an active Subscription to continue using the Services and receiving support. “Subscription” means the period of time, which may be in one (1) month or twelve (12) month periods, which you have paid to access and use the Services. These Terms and the licenses granted hereunder commence on the date you first begin using the Services and will continue for as long as you have an active Subscription. Your Subscription and these Terms will automatically renew for successive one (1) month or twelve (12) month periods, as the case may be, unless either party provides termination notice to the other at least ten (10) days prior to the expiration of your Subscription or if either party terminates the Services in accordance with these Terms. If you do not maintain an active Subscription, these Terms, the licenses granted hereunder, and your use of and access to the Services, will terminate.
The Services and the support we provide you during your Subscription are in exchange for the fees set forth on the applicable invoice (“Fees”) and you are liable to pay for such Fees. Your number of Sites must correspond to the maximum number of Sites for which you have paid the applicable Fees. You further agree: (i) to prepay the Fees and applicable taxes when ordering the Services, (ii) that unless you set the auto-renew preference to “Off” in your account settings prior to the end of your existing Subscription, your paid Subscription will automatically renew, and you authorize us (without notice) to collect the then-applicable fee and any taxes for the next Subscription using the credit card or billing credentials that you provided for your previous Subscription, (iii) that if the payment card you provide expires and you do not provide new payment card information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing you and you agree to remain responsible for any uncollected Fees, and (iv) the cost of the Services may change from time to time, provided the cost will not change during any Subscription.
Though we’d much rather you stay, you can stop using our Services at any time, however, payments are non-refundable even if you stop using the Services. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Services at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice. If we suspend or terminate your use, we will try to let you know in advance by using the contact information in your account and help you retrieve data that you failed to backup within 10 days of the suspension or termination, though there may be some cases where we need to suspend your access immediately without notice to you.
11. PageCloud is Available “AS-IS”
Though we want to provide a great service and we use a hosting service provider which provides our storage space for our Services, there are certain things about the Services and Content we can’t promise. For example, THE SERVICES, CONTENT AND THIRD PARTY CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY AND APPROPRIATENESS OF YOUR STUFF AND ALL ACCOMPANYING DATA WITHIN YOUR SITES. WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR INACCURATE INFORMATION AND ANY POTENTIAL DAMAGES CAUSED BY SUCH INACCURACIES. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. (We are not shouting — it’s just that these disclaimers are really important, so we want to highlight them.) PageCloud will have no responsibility for any harm to your computer system, loss or corruption of data, or other harm that results from your access to or use of the Site, Services, or Content. Some jurisdictions do not allow the types of disclaimers in this paragraph, so they may not apply to you.
FURTHER, WE AND OUR AFFILIATES, SUBSIDIARIES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTIES THAT THE SERVICES OR THE CONTENT ARE APPROPRIATE OR AVAILABLE FOR USE IN ALL GEOGRAPHIC LOCATIONS. IF YOU USE THE SERVICES, OR THE CONTENT OUTSIDE CANADA, YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLIANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, COPYRIGHT LAWS AND EXPORT, IMPORT, AND USE LAWS AND REGULATIONS OF OTHER COUNTRIES. NEITHER PAGECLOUD NOR ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, PARTNERS, OR AFFILIATES WARRANT THAT SERVERS, CONTENT, SERVICES, OR ANY E-MAIL SENT FROM THE SERVICES OR ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS, PARTNERS, OR AFFILIATES ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.
12. Exclusive Remedy

Certain jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so the exclusions set out herein may not apply to you.

You agree: (a) to fully cooperate at your expense as reasonably required by an Indemnified Party; (b) each Indemnified Party may, at its election, assume the defense and control of any matter for which it is indemnified hereunder; (c) you shall not settle any matter involving an Indemnified Party without the consent of the applicable Indemnified Party.

In the event of any material change to these Terms, we will post a notice on the Site that we have changed these Terms. If we have your email address in your account information, we may (but are not required to) email you to provide notice that we have changed these Terms. We are not responsible if (i) any email notice gets caught by your email filter and you do not see the email, (ii) you provided us the wrong email address, (iii) you failed to update your email address, or (iv) there are other Internet or communications issues that prevent our email from reaching you. We recommend you frequently visit the Site to monitor any changes to these Terms. Your continued access to and use of the Site, Services, and Content following the posting of any changes to these Terms constitutes acceptance of those changes. By continuing to access or use the Site, Services, and Content after changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms.

16. Miscellaneous Legal Terms
These Terms shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the Province of Ontario, Canada, exclusive of rules and principles of conflicts of law. Each party hereto irrevocably waives any objection on the grounds of venue, forum non-conveniens or any similar grounds and irrevocably consents to service of process by mail or in any other manner permitted by applicable law and consents to the jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario, Canada. The parties further hereby waive any right to a trial by jury with respect to any lawsuit or judicial proceeding arising or relating to these Terms and agree that any proceeding must be brought in and remain in the courts located in the City of Ottawa, Ontario. These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between you and PageCloud with respect to the Services, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services. These Terms create no third party beneficiary rights. PageCloud’s failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of its right to do so later. If a provision is found unenforceable the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void, but PageCloud may assign its rights to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, or to any successor in interest of any business associated with the Services. A printed version of these Terms and of any related notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. PageCloud and you are not legal partners or agents; instead, our relationship is that of independent contractors. Notwithstanding the termination or expiration of these Terms for any reason, any provisions of these Terms containing license restrictions, warranties and warranty disclaimers, confidentiality obligations, limitations of liability and/or indemnity terms, and any provision of these Terms which, by its nature, is intended to survive termination or expiration, shall survive and remain in effect following any such termination or expiration.
