In some instances, both these T&Cs and separate guidelines, rules, or terms of service or sale setting forth additional or different terms and/or conditions will apply to your use of the Site or Community Properties or to a service or product offered via the Site or Community Properties (in each such instance, and collectively, “Additional Terms”). To the extent there is a conflict between these T&Cs and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control unless the Additional Terms expressly state otherwise.

Face to Face Meetings.
The Site and Community Properties may enable users to arrange physical meetings (as distinguished from online meetings) or other in-person gatherings.

The Community reserves the right to postpone, change and/or cancel any scheduled or running Program at any time with or without notice.
Right to Be Removed from Programs.

The Community Does Not Guarantee Product Shipment or The Condition of Any Products.

Special Provisions on Surveys & Sweepstakes.
Surveys and sweepstakes sponsored by us or our clients may be made available to members on the Site or Community Properties. Visiting the Site or Community Properties or using them as a member is not conditional on your participation in these surveys or sweepstakes. Any sweepstake will be accompanied by its own terms and conditions of entry.
Competitions sponsored by us or our clients may be made available to members on the Site or Community Properties and may have supplemental rules and conditions, but the following general rules apply absent contrary terms in any supplemental rules or conditions for the competition.
- Entries. Your competition entry is User-Generated Content and subject to all provisions of these T&Cs that govern your submission and our use of your User-Generated Content. We may disqualify entries that are late, misdirected, incomplete, corrupted, lost, illegible or invalid or where appropriate parental consent was not provided. Competition entries are limited to one per person and entries via agents or third parties or the use of multiple identities are not permitted. Use of automated entries, votes or other programs is prohibited and all such entries (or votes) will be disqualified. We reserve the right to modify, suspend, cancel or terminate a competition or extend or resume the entry period or disqualify any participant or entry at any time without giving advance notice. We will do so if it cannot be guaranteed the competition can be carried out fairly or correctly for technical, legal or other reasons, or if we suspect that any person has manipulated entries or results, provided false information or acted unethically. If we cancel or terminate a competition, prizes may be awarded in any manner we deem fair and appropriate consistent with local laws governing the competition.
- Eligibility. To enter a competition, you must be a registered user of the Community and have an active account with current contact information. No purchase is necessary to enter a competition and a purchase will not improve your chances of winning. Competitions are not open to our employees (or their immediate families) or anyone else professionally associated with the competition. If you are under age 18 (or the age of majority under applicable law) and the competition is open to you, we may need your parent or guardian’s consent before we can accept your entry. We reserve the right to request proof of identity or to verify eligibility conditions and potential winning entries, and to award any prize to a winner in person. Competitions are void where prohibited or restricted by law. Potential winners who are residents in jurisdictions where competitions require an element of skill may be required to answer a mathematical test in order to be eligible to win a prize.
- Prizes. No cash or alternative prizes are available, except that we (or the party providing a prize) reserve the right to substitute a similar prize of equal or greater value. Prizes cannot be transferred (except to a child or other family member) or sold by winners. Only the number of prizes stated for the competition is available to be won and all prizes will be awarded provided a sufficient number of eligible entries are received and prizes are validly claimed by the date provided in connection with the competition, after which no alternate winners will be selected or unclaimed prizes awarded. Unless otherwise disclosed in the prize description prior to entry, winners are responsible for all costs and expenses associated with claiming a prize. All taxes are solely the responsibility of each winner, although we reserve the right to withhold applicable taxes and each winner agrees to complete any required tax forms. Your acceptance of a prize constitutes agreement to participate in reasonable publicity related to the competition and grants us an unconditional right to us to use your name, town or city and state, province or country, likeness, prize information and statements by you about the competition for publicity, advertising and promotional purposes and to comply with applicable law and regulations, all without additional permission or compensation. As a condition of receiving a prize, winners (or their parents or guardians) may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility, liability release and publicity release.
In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, this Site and Community Properties may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third party vendors and other third parties (the "External Sites"). However, even if the third party is affiliated with the Community, the Community has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of the Community. The Community has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Links do not imply that the Community sponsors, endorses, is affiliated with or associated with, or has been legally authorized to use any trademark, trade name, service mark, design, logo, symbol or other copyrighted materials displayed on or accessible through such External Sites. Nonetheless, the Community seeks to protect the integrity of its Site and Community Properties and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own Site and Community Properties, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work). You should contact the Site administrator or webmaster for those External Sites if you have any concerns regarding such links or the content located on such External Sites.
The Community makes no warranties or representations about the accuracy or completeness of this Site's or the Community Properties’ content or the content of any site or External Sites.
The Community does not filter advertisements or other content that children may view through our sites or "hot-linked" sites, and they could receive content and materials from the Internet and/or advertising that are inappropriate for children. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to consider using electronic filtering software.
This Site and Community Properties and the materials, information, services, and products in this Site and Community Properties, including, without limitation, text, graphics, and links, are provided “AS IS” and without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied. To the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law, the Community disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, freedom from computer virus, and warranties arising from course of dealing or course of performance. The Community does not represent or warrant that the functions contained in the Site or Community Properties will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that this Site or Community Properties or the server that makes the Site or Community Properties available are free of viruses or other harmful components. The Community does not make any warranties or representations regarding the use of the materials in this Site in Terms of their completeness, correctness, accuracy, adequacy, usefulness, timeliness, reliability or otherwise. The above limitations may not apply to you.
Limitation Of Liability.
In NO EVENT shall the Community be liable for any direct, indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary or consequential, damages, or any damages whatsoever, even if the Community has been previously advised of the possibility of such damages, whether in an action under contract, negligence, or any other theory, arising out of or in connection with the use, inability to use, or performance of the information, services, products, and materials available from this Site and Community Properties. These limitations shall apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warrant lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitations may not apply to you.
You agree to indemnify and defend the Community and hold the Community and its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors and suppliers harmless from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any violation of these T&Cs or any activity related to your Internet account (including negligent or wrongful conduct), by you or any other person accessing the Site or Community Properties using your Internet account.
Your use of this Site and Community Properties shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the state of Ohio, U.S.A., without regard to choice of law provisions, and not by the 1980 U.N. Convention on contracts for the international sale of goods. You agree that jurisdiction over and venue in any legal proceeding directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to this Site or Community Properties shall be in the state or federal courts located in Hamilton County, Ohio. Any cause of action or claim you may have with respect to the Site or Community Properties must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. The Community’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these T&Cs shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice shall act to modify any of these T&Cs. The Community may assign its rights and duties under these T&Cs to any party at any time without notice to you.
The Community makes no representation that materials in the Site or Community Properties are appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to them from territories where their content is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access this Site or Community Properties from locations outside Ohio do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. You may not use or export the materials in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. Any claim relating to the materials shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Ohio.
You and the Community agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to this Site or Community Properties, including these T&Cs and further including any disputes arising from or concerning their interpretation, violation, nullity, invalidity, non-performance or termination, as well as disputes about filling gaps herein or the adaptation hereof to newly arisen circumstances, shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction (the “Arbitration Agreement”). Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these T&Cs, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and the Community are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class action. Without limitation, this arbitration provision shall survive the termination of your use of this Site and Community Properties.
If you elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to the Community, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to the Community should be addressed to: General Counsel, Vocalpoint, 9545 Kenwood Road, Suite 303, Cincinnati, OH 45242 ("Notice Address"). If the Community elects to seek arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the e-mail address used to access this Site. A Notice, whether sent by you or by the Community, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If the Community and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or the Community may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offers made by the Community or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. The claimant in any arbitration proceeding hereunder shall pay the filing fee. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement. Unless the Community and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Hamilton County, Ohio, and you hereby submit to personal jurisdiction in such county for this purpose, only. In the discretion of the arbitrator, you may participate in any or all of the arbitration proceedings and present your witnesses remotely via telephone, video link or any other similar remote means of communications so long as we have had a reasonable opportunity to depose such witness prior to the hearing and you may submit exhibits to the arbitrator electronically. If your claim is for US $10,000.00 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds U.S. $10,000.00, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. A judgment of the court of general jurisdiction in the venue where the arbitration hearing is held may be rendered upon the arbitrator’s ward
Any award in an arbitration initiated under this clause shall be limited to monetary damages and shall include no injunction or direction to any party other than the direction to pay a monetary amount.
