TBTN does not guarantee that the Services will be available outside the United States nor that the Services will be compliant with the laws or regulations of foreign territories

Waiver and Severability. These Terms are the entire understanding between you and TBTN about the Services. If any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law; it is, to that extent, deemed omitted, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. Any notices related to these Terms must be submitted in writing to the TBTN Service Department at the address below. The failure of TBTN to require or enforce strict performance by you of any provision of these Terms or the failure to exercise any right under them, should not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of TBTN’s right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance. You and TBTN agree that if any portion of these Terms of Use is deemed to be illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part by any court of competent jurisdiction; such provision will, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective only to the extent of such determination of invalidity or unenforceability without affecting the validity or enforceability thereof in any other manner or jurisdiction and without affecting the remaining provisions of this Agreement, which will continue to be in full force and effect.

Choice of Law. These Terms, Subscription Agreements, and all matters relating to your access to, or use of, the Services shall be governed by U.S. federal law or the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, excluding that body of laws known as conflicts of laws.

Statute of Limitations. You and TBTN both agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Services or any of these Terms and any Subscription Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or will be forever barred.

Arbitration. You agree under these Terms, you and TBTN are waiving the right to a trial by jury. You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims arising out of or relating to these Terms between TBTN and you, including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send written notice of your intent to arbitrate to:
TBTN Services Department
PO Box 332
Wayne, PA 19087

The notice to TBTN should be sent by U.S. Postal Service certified mail. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If we do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the notice is received, you or TBTN may commence an arbitration proceeding. The arbitration shall be governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and shall be administered by the AAA. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this arbitration clause, but the arbitrator is bound by the terms included in these Terms. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is improper or not warranted, as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b), then you agree to reimburse TBTN for all monies disbursed by it related to this arbitration, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred for the arbitration. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. You and TBTN agree that you and TBTN may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, you agree that the arbitrator may not consolidate proceedings or more than one person’s or Subscribing entity’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, and that if this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration clause shall be null and void.

Terms of Service

If you are using the Services as part of a paid transaction with TBTN, please read these additional Terms of Service carefully, as they also govern your use of the Services. These Terms of Service, in combination with the Terms of Use and the Subscription Agreement when applicable, are the legal and binding agreement between TBTN and entities using the Services through a paid transaction. When an entity’s representative registers or creates an account for the entity and its Users to access the Services, the entity agrees to be legally bound by these Terms and any Agreement it has signed on behalf of it and its Users.

Payment Obligation and Credit Card Authorization. Users are responsible for paying fees as agreed under the terms of their purchases. All fees are listed in U.S. dollars. Users hereby authorize TBTN to charge their credit card on file or other payment method to pay for the fee for their purchase. Payment will be made by charge to a User’s credit card or other payment method. Users or their authorized representatives must be at least 18 years old (or have the permission of a credit card holder who is) to purchase the Services. If TBTN does not receive payment from the credit card issuer or its agent, Users agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by TBTN. TBTN reserves the right, at any time, to change its fees and billing methods, including the addition of separate charges for content or services provided by TBTN or affiliated third parties.

Cancellation and Termination. Users may terminate their purchase at any time with the understanding that no refunds are provided for any reason; including, but not limited to, early termination, under-utilization of the Services, under-utilization of purchased User accesses, failure to set up or use an account, failure to use data or reports, displeasure with the quality or performance of the Services, or any other reason. Terminated purchases will result in the immediate inability to access the Services; including the Subscriber’s accounts, data or other information provided by the User to TBTN, or information accessible through the Services. Users understand that TBTN, in its sole discretion, may terminate the Services, or any part thereof, for any reason or no reason, including, without explanation or limitation, if TBTN believes that a User or one of its Users has violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these Terms. TBTN may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, with or without notice. Users agree that any termination of access to the Service under any provision of these Terms may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that TBTN may immediately deactivate or delete Subscriptions, accounts and/or bar any further access to the Services by the User. TBTN shall not be liable to Users or any third party for termination of the Services or any part thereof.

Modifications. This agreement is subject to change by TBTN at any time. We may modify any of the terms and conditions contained in these Terms at any time in our sole discretion. If any modification is unacceptable to you, you agree that your only recourse is to terminate use of the Services. Your continued use of the Services following our posting of a change notice or new Terms will constitute your binding acceptance of the change.
