Terms of Service Overview
These Terms of Service ("Terms") describe the commitments to you by Civic Bits LLC ("Bill Sponsor", "we" or "us"), and your rights and responsibilities when you use our website or otherwise interact with us ("Services").
1. Who's Who
"You" means any individual or entity using our Services. If you use our Services on behalf of another person or entity, you represent and warrant that you're authorized to accept the Agreement on that person's or entity's behalf, that by using using our Services you're accepting the Agreement on behalf of that person or entity, and that if you, or that person or entity, violates the Agreement, you and that person or entity agree to be responsible to us.
We love hearing from you and are always looking to improve our Services. When you share comments, ideas, or feedback with us, you agree that we're free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you.
3. Content Reuse
Any reuse of content from our website for publication, broadcast, online, or on social media must be clearly attributed to Bill Sponsor.
4. Copyright Infringement
As we ask others to respect our intellectual property rights, we respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe any Content violates your copyright, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Intellectual Property
The Agreement doesn't transfer any Bill Sponsor or third-party intellectual property to you, and all right, title, and interest in and to such property remains (as between Bill Sponsor and you) solely with Bill Sponsor. Bill Sponsor and all other trademarks, service marks, graphics, and logos used in connection with our websites or Services are trademarks or registered trademarks of Bill Sponsor (or Bill Sponsor's licensors). Other trademarks, service marks, graphics, and logos used in connection with our Services may be the trademarks of other third parties. Using our Services doesn't grant you any right or license to reproduce or otherwise use any Bill Sponsor or third-party trademarks.
We may update, change, or discontinue any aspect of our Services at any time. Since we're constantly updating our Services, we sometimes have to change the legal terms under which they're offered. When this Agreement is modified, we'll update the "Last Updated" date. Your continued use of our Services after the new terms take effect will be subject to the new terms, so if you disagree with the changes in the new terms, you should stop using our Services.
Our Services are provided "as is." Bill Sponsor and its suppliers and licensors hereby disclaim all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. Neither Bill Sponsor, nor its suppliers and licensors, makes any warranty that our Services will be error free or that access thereto will be continuous or uninterrupted. You understand that you download from, or otherwise obtain content or services through, our Services at your own discretion and risk.
8. Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
Except to the extent any applicable law provides otherwise, the Agreement and any access to or use of our Services will be governed by the laws of the state of California, U.S.A., excluding its conflict of law provisions. The proper venue for any disputes arising out of or relating to the Agreement and any access to or use of our Services that are not otherwise subject to arbitration (as indicated below) will be the state and federal courts located in San Francisco County, California.
9. Arbitration Agreement
Except for claims for injunctive or equitable relief or claims regarding intellectual property rights (which may be brought in any competent court without the posting of a bond), any dispute arising under the Agreement shall be finally settled in accordance with the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service, Inc. ("JAMS") by three arbitrators appointed in accordance with such Rules. The arbitration shall take place in Florida and the arbitral decision may be enforced in any court. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce the Agreement shall be entitled to costs and attorneys' fees.
10. Limitation of Liability
In no event will Bill Sponsor, or its suppliers, partners, or licensors, be liable with respect to any subject matter of the Agreement under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for: (i) any special, incidental or consequential damages; (ii) the cost of procurement for substitute products or services; (iii) for interruption of use or loss or corruption of data; or (iv) for any amounts that exceed $50 or the fees paid by you to Bill Sponsor under the Agreement during the twelve (12) month period prior to the cause of action, whichever is greater. Bill Sponsor shall have no liability for any failure or delay due to matters beyond its reasonable control. The foregoing shall not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Bill Sponsor, its contractors, and its licensors, and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against any and all losses, liabilities, demands, damages, costs, claims, and expenses, including attorneys' fees, arising out of or related to your use of our Services, including but not limited to your violation of the Agreement or any agreement with a provider of third-party services used in connection with the Services.
12. US Economic Sanctions
You may not use the Services if such use is inconsistent with U.S. sanctions law or if you are on any list maintained by a U.S. government authority relating to designated, restricted or prohibited persons.
The Agreement (together with any other terms we provide that apply to any specific Service) constitutes the entire agreement between Bill Sponsor and you concerning our Services. If any part of the Agreement is unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that part is severable from the Agreement, and does not affect the validity or enforceability of the rest of the Agreement. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of the Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof.
Bill Sponsor may assign its rights under the Agreement without condition. You may only assign your rights under the Agreement with our prior written consent.
