This Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use (collectively, this “Agreement”) is a legal agreement between CRE MEDIA AND EVENTS LLC  (sometimes referred to as “we”) and you individually, or an entity for whom you are authorized to act (referred to as “you”), dated the date you execute the Agreement below. This Agreement governs your use of cremembers.com and, unless other terms and conditions expressly govern, any other electronic services from cremembers.com that may be made available by us to you from time to time (collectively, the “Service”).

1. Changes to Subscriber Agreement. We may change the terms of this Agreement at any time. The changes will appear in this document, which you can access at any time by going to the “About Us” section of cremembers.com. You signify that you agree to be bound by such changes by accessing or using the Service after changes are made to this Agreement.

2. Privacy and Your Account. Registration data and other information about you will be shared with our affiliates, subsidiaries and certain of our partners in limited circumstances. If your access to the Service has been provided by or through a third party (for example, your employer or an education institution where you are a student) (each, a “Third Party”), the Third Party may have provided us with information about you to enable us to provide you with access to the Service and distinguish you from other subscribers (such as your email address or name). If you access the Service using a password, you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of that password. You agree to notify us promptly if you change your address or email so we can continue to contact you and send any notices required hereunder. If you fail to notify us promptly of a change, then any notice we send to your old address or email shall be deemed sufficient notice.

3. Fees, Term and Renewal.  You must be 18 years of age or older to purchase a subscription to the Services or any other content, product, or service offered by us through the Services. If you are less than 18 years of age and want to make any such purchase, please ask your parent or guardian to complete the purchase on your behalf.  You agree to pay the subscription fees and any other charges incurred in connection with your log in and password for the Service (including any applicable taxes, charges, or assessments) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Subscription fees will be billed at the beginning of your subscription or any renewal. In the event that you choose to cancel your subscription before the subscription period expires, we will refund to you the balance due.  The Service has two pricing options.  The first pricing option is a monthly option that gives you access to the Service on a month-to-month basis for $35 per month (“Monthly Plan”).  The second pricing option is an annual option that gives you access to the Service on a 12-month basis (measured from the month you start your subscription of the Service) for $300 per twelve-month period (“Annual Plan”).

Either the Monthly Plan or Annual Plan will renew automatically until we receive a written notification from you, by postal mail or email, instructing us to cancel your subscription.  You must notify us of any cancellation of the Subscription at least 30 days in advance.  For example, if you selected the Monthly Plan and you notified us on October 15 of your cancellation, your subscription will be cancelled effective December 1 and you would be charged for October and November.

If you select the Annual Plan and cancel the Service prior to the end of the first 12-month term, you will be charged $35 per month for the months you had the Service and be refunded the remainder.  For example, if you began the Service in January and on March 15th you sent us the required 30 days’ notice and notified us that you wanted to cancel the Service, your subscription would be cancelled effective May 1 and you would be charged $140 ($35 per month times 4 months) and receive a refund of $160.

4. Unlawful Activity.We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of this Agreement and to take any action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties and disclosing any information necessary or appropriate to such persons or entities relating to your account information, email addresses, usage history, posted materials, IP addresses, and traffic information.

The foregoing limitations of liability are intended to apply to all claims and damages without regard to whether any other provision of this Agreement has been breached or proven ineffective.
