These Terms of Use shall apply to all websites owned and/or operated by the Active Network, Inc., including without limitation the website on which these Terms of Use are posted and Active’s parents, subsidiary and/or affiliate entities whether or not referred to directly as Active or The Active Network, Inc. Active maintains this and other websites as a service to its customers. By accessing and/or using the web sites owned, operated and/or maintained by Active (the "Active Sites"), you are expressly agreeing to comply with and be bound by the following Terms of Use and Active’s Privacy Policy separately provided, as well as all applicable laws and regulations. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS OF USE, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE THE ACTIVE SITES AND MUST NOT ACCESS OR USE THEM. Active may revise and update these Terms of Use at any time; please periodically review them, because your continued usage of the Active Sites indicates your agreement with any such changes.

You further understand and agree that any updates, enhancements or added features of any Active Sites or services shall be made part of these Terms of Use. Additionally, certain of the Active Sites may be subject to registration, processing and handling fees and/or subject to additional terms of use (e.g. eteamz.com). You are responsible for promptly paying those fees to insure your right to access the associated Active Sites and/or services.

Copyright.

All content included on the Active Sites, such as text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, audio clips and software, as well as the compilation of any of the foregoing (meaning the collection, arrangement and assembly), are the property of Active or its content suppliers and protected by U.S. and international copyright laws. You acknowledge and agree that Content contained in sponsor advertisements or information presented to you through the Active Sites or by advertisers is protected by copyrights, trademarks, service marks, patents or other proprietary rights and laws. Except as expressly authorized by Active or such advertisers, you agree not to modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute or create derivative works based on the Active Sites, services, products or software, in whole or in part.

Permitted Use. The content and software on the Active Sites may be used as an information, entertainment, registration and/or shopping resource.

This permission does not extend to materials owned by Active licensors. Except as expressly stated in these Terms of Use or as otherwise specifically authorized by Active, you may not duplicate, download, publish, modify or otherwise distribute (including through the use of frames or deep links) the material on the Active Sites. Furthermore, you may not copy, reproduce or distribute the design or layout of the Active Sites, the Active logos or other design elements or software.

Permitted Use of Active Trademarks

Active trademarks identify Active products and services, and let the public know the source of those products and services. You may make comparative or other nominal fair use of our trademarks in advertising and promotional materials, and in referring to our products and services (for example, in a magazine article) without our permission, provided you follow standard trademark usage practices and provide proper attribution to Active. Other uses require written permission from Active, and absent such express permission, you agree not to use or display the Active trademarks in any manner. Please make such requests by e-mail to bizdev@active.com; we will evaluate your request as soon as possible.

Active’s Trademarks include, without limitation, those published and searchable on the United States Patent and Trademark Office located at http://www.uspto.gov at “Search Trademarks” and the Canadian Trademark Office at: http://strategis.ic.gc.ca/sc_mrksv/cipo/welcome/welcom-e.html at “Search” indicating The Active Network as the identified owner for conducting such search.

You further understand that the internet has no geographical boundaries, and you therefore agree to comply with all local rules regarding online conduct and acceptable Content. Specifically, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside.

Active does not claim ownership of any Content submitted and/or posted by you on any Active Site(s).

Without limiting the foregoing, Active and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates these Terms of Use or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content created by Active or submitted to Active, including without limitation information in Active Message Boards and in all other parts of the Active Sites.

Active makes every effort to protect individual privacy and personal information, and is particularly concerned about child privacy. Parents of children under the age of 13 who wish to allow their children access are required to provide their consent for any registration. By creating such a registration involving your child under the age of 13, you certify that you are at least 18 years old or that you are the parent or legal guardian of the child/children listed on the registration. Unless you have notified us otherwise, You also give your child permission to access many areas of the Active Sites related to the registration, including email, message boards and other registration related information. Please remember that the Active Sites and Active services are intended to apply to a broad audience. Accordingly, as the parent or legal guardian, it is your responsibility to determine whether any of the Active Sites areas and/or content are appropriate for your child.

Registration data and certain other information about you is subject to Active’s Privacy Policy located at: http://www.activenetwork.com/privacy-policy.htm Through your use of the Active Sites and related services you consent to the collection and use (as set forth in the Privacy Policy) of certain information about you, including the transfer of this information to the United States and/or other countries for storage, processing and use by Active and its affiliates.

By registering for those Active Sites, you hereby authorize Active to charge your credit card in advance for all applicable fees incurred by you in connection with your chosen service and registration for your account. You hereby understand and agree that in most cases, Active will be charging your designated credit card in accordance with the payment schedule of the service for which you have registered, but some service fees may accumulate on your credit card account before they are actually charged to your credit card. You further understand and agree that it is your responsibility to notify Active of any changes to your credit card or if your credit card has expired otherwise your access to the Service may be disconnected or interrupted. All fees shall be paid in U.S. dollars.

Active reserves the right to change any fees (which includes but is not limited to, charging a fee for packages, options, upgrades and/or a Service for which Active does not currently charge a fee) or billing methods at any time, provided, however, that such modifications shall not take effect earlier than thirty (30) days after Active posts such modification on the applicable Active Site(s). Active also has the right to collect applicable taxes and impose premium surcharges for some areas of the Service and these surcharges may apply immediately after you register for the associated service. You may cancel any your Account or any associated optional or upgraded services therefore at any time, but Active will not refund any remaining portion of your pre-paid fees and you may be charged an additional cancellation fee.

That amount is also due immediately. You are responsible and liable for any fees, including attorney and collection fees, that Active may incur in its efforts to collect any remaining balances due from you. This section titled Charges and Billing For Certain Active Sites shall in no way limit any other remedies available to Active.

However, each online donation will require the organization to pay a processing and handling charge equal to 6.5% of the donated amount plus $1.00 (subject to change by Active in its sole discretion). Such charges shall be collected by Active. Fees collected from online registrants will be sent in regular intervals to the designated charitable organization in accordance with contract and law, less Active’s processing and handling fee.
