Acceptance of Terms
Got-a-Case Legal Systems, LLC (referred to here as “GAC”) provides its Service (as defined below) to You through its web sites located at Gotacase.com, CasesTracker.com and other web sites (the “Sites”), subject to this Terms of Service agreement (“TOS”). By accepting this TOS or by accessing or using the Service or Sites, You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this TOS. If You are entering into this TOS on behalf of a company or other legal entity, You represent that You have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these TOS, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates. If You do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these TOS, You must not accept these TOS and may not use the Service.
GAC may change this TOS from time to time without prior notice. You can review the most current version of this TOS at any time at http://www.gotacase.com/term-of-use. The revised terms and conditions will become effective upon posting and if You use the Service after that date, we will treat your use as acceptance of the revised terms and conditions. If any change to this TOS is not acceptable to You, your only remedy is to stop accessing and using the Service.
Description of Service
The “Service” includes (a) the Sites, (b) the on-demand GAC system, tools and services provided through the Sites, and (c) all software, data, text, images, sounds, video, and content made available through the Sites or services (collectively referred to as the “Content”). Any new features added to or augmenting the Service are also subject to this TOS.
General Conditions / Access and User of the Service
Subject to the terms and conditions of this TOS, You may access and use the Service only for your internal business purposes as contemplated by the Agreement. You shall not (a) license, sublicense, sell, resell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute, time share or otherwise commercially exploit or make the Service available to any third party, other than as expressly permitted by this TOS; (b) use the Service to process data on behalf of any third party, or (c) use the Service in any unlawful manner or in any manner that interferes with or disrupts the integrity or performance of the Service and its components.
Subject only to the limited right to access and use the Service expressly granted to You under this TOS, all rights, title and interest in and to the Service and its components will remain with and belong exclusively to GAC. You shall not modify, adapt or hack the Service to falsely imply any sponsorship or association with GAC, or otherwise attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or its related systems or networks.
GAC imposes certain restrictions on your permissible use of the Sites and the Service. You are prohibited from violating or attempting to violate any security features of the Sites or Service, including, without limitation, (a) accessing content or data not intended for you, or logging onto a server or account that you are not authorized to access; (b) attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of the Service, the Sites, or any associated system or network, or to breach security or authentication measures without proper authorization; (c) interfering or attempting to interfere with service to any user, host, or network, including, without limitation, by means of submitting a virus to the Sites or Service, overloading, “flooding,” “spamming,” “mail bombing,” “crashing;” or “distributed denial of service” (DDOS) attacks; (d) using the Sites or Service to send unsolicited e-mail, including, without limitation, promotions, or advertisements for products or services; (e) forging any TCP/IP packet header or any part of the header information in any e-mail or in any posting using the Service; or (f) attempting to modify, reverse-engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reduce or attempt to reduce to a human-perceivable form any of the source code used by GAC in providing the Sites or Service. Any violation of system or network security may subject you to civil and/or criminal liability.
You are responsible for all information, data, text, messages or other materials that You post or otherwise transmit via the Service. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login and account and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your login or account. You agree and acknowledge that your login may only be used by one (1) person – a single login shared by multiple people is not permitted. You may create separate logins for as many people as your plan allows. GAC reserves the right to access any or all of your accounts in order to respond to your requests for technical support.
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 GAC immediately of any unauthorized use of your account, user name, or password. GAC 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 GAC, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, and representatives due to someone else’s use of your account or password.
You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your content, may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices and (c) transmission to GAC’s third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to operate and maintain the Service.
The failure of GAC to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this TOS shall not be a waiver of that right. You acknowledge that this TOS is a contract between You and GAC, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and GAC, and it governs your use of the Service and takes the place of any prior agreements between You and GAC.
The name “Got-a-Case”, the name “GotaCase”, the name “CasesTracker” and Got-a-Case’s various logos used or displayed on the Service are trademarks of Got-a-Case Legal Systems, LLC. You may only use these trademarks or logos for promotional purposes to identify yourself as a customer or user of the GAC products and services, provided you do not attempt to claim ownership of the marks by incorporating any of them within your names or offerings.
Payment and Refunds
Some portions of the Service may be made available on a pay-as-you-go basis. If You do not provide your credit card details to GAC’s payment proccessing partner, your account will be suspended and can only be reactivated by submitting your credit card information. If You have provided credit card details and have elected to continue with a paid plan, You will be billed monthly. Regardless of your billing cycle, there are no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made. Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly fees to the Service, are subject to change upon 30 days’ notice from GAC. Such notice may be provided at any time.
Cancellation and Termination
You are responsible for properly cancelling your account. The account owner (as defined in the sign-up procedure) can cancel the account at any time by notifying GAC. There are no other means of cancelling your account. All of your content may be deleted from the Service following cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once the information has been deleted. If You cancel the Service before the end of your current paid up month, your cancellation will take effect immediately and you will not be charged again.
GAC reserves the right to (i) modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) and (ii) refuse any and all current and future use of the Service, suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any of your content in the Service if GAC believes that You have violated these TOS. GAC will use best efforts to publish on the Sites or notify You about any planned downtime of the Service, and will use all reasonable efforts to contact you directly via email to warn you prior to suspension or termination of your account. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. GAC shall not be liable to You or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of the Service.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES
THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE SITES AND CONTENT, AND ALL SERVER AND NETWORK COMPONENTS ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW AND GAC EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT GAC DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, ERROR-FREE OR VIRUS-FREE AND NO INFORMATION OR ADVICE OBTAINED BY YOU FROM GAC OR THROUGH THE SERVICE SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS TOS.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE) SHALL GAC BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOST SALES OR BUSINESS, LOST DATA OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION. IN ADDITION, GAC SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT DAMAGES, COSTS, LOSSES OR LIABILITIES IN EXCESS OF THE MONTHLY SERVICE FEE PAID OR PAYABLE BY YOU FOR THE ONE MONTH PRECEDING THE TIME OF ANY CLAIM FOR MONETARY DAMAGES OR ONE HUNDRED ($100) U.S. DOLLARS. THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ALLOCATE THE RISKS UNDER THIS TOS BETWEEN THE PARTIES, AND THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED ON THESE LIMITATIONS IN DETERMINING WHETHER TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.
Some states do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to you. IN THESE STATES, GAC’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
GAC may assign or transfer this TOS, in whole or in part, without restriction.
You are responsible for complying with any applicable laws, rules, or regulations governing the export of the Service or any of its components.
This TOS shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the United States and the State of Michigan, without reference to their rules regarding conflicts of law. You hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in the County of Oakland, Michigan, USA in all disputes arising out of or related to the use of the Sites or Service.
If, for whatever reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any term or condition in this TOS to be unenforceable, all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect. No waiver of any breach of any provision of this TOS shall constitute a waiver of any prior, concurrent, or subsequent breach of the same or any other provisions hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.
GAC may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice, (a) revise this TOS; (b) modify the Sites and/or the Service; and (c) discontinue the Sites and/or Service at any time. GAC shall post any revision to this TOS to the Sites, and the revision shall be effective immediately on such posting. You agree to review this TOS and other online policies posted on the Sites periodically to be aware of any revisions. You agree that, by continuing to use or access the Sites following notice of any revision, you shall abide by any such revision.
BY USING THE SERVICE OR ACCESSING THE SITES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS TOS AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THEM.
