DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
General. The Services provide access to the content and materials to develop email and subscriber strategies, including newsletters and marketing email samples, to help you build more sustainable subscription or membership-based businesses.
Eligibility. We market and sell our products to adults who purchase or otherwise subscribe to our Services. To access and/or use the Services, you must be eighteen (18) years or older and have the requisite power and authority to enter into this Terms of Service and meet any other applicable age and residency requirements. The Services are not intended for and should not be used by anyone under the age of eighteen (18). You represent and warrant that you are over the age of eighteen (18) and are the intended recipient of the Services. You may not access and/or use the Services for any purpose if either of the representations in the preceding sentence are not true.
Use of Services and Availability. Use of the Services is at your own risk, including without limitation the risk that you might be exposed to content that is offensive, indecent, inaccurate, or objectionable. ITK retains the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to deny service and/or access to and/or use of the Services to anyone at any time and for any reason without liability. While we use reasonable efforts to keep the Services accessible, the Services may be unavailable from time to time. You understand and agree that there may be interruptions to the Services and/or access to your User Account (defined below) due to circumstances both within our control (e.g., routine maintenance) and outside of ITK’s control, for which ITK will bear no responsibility. The Services may be modified, updated, suspended and/or discontinued at any time without notice and/or liability.
Creating an Account. You may establish an account to access the Services through ITK’s third-party service provider, Pico (https://trypico.com/pro). Without creating an account, you will only be able to browse ITK’s website and a limited amount of materials that we have provided for non-paying users as well as descriptions of products and/or Services we offer. In order to fully access and/or use the Services, and gain access to the functionality of the software and/or information we provide, you must register and create an account through Pico by creating a login identification (“Username”) and a unique user password (“Password“) (collectively, a “User Account“). When setting up a User Account, you are required to (i) abide by all applicable laws, rules, and regulations, as well as indicate agreement to this Terms of Service, (ii) provide contact information, and (iii) submit any other form of authentication required during the enrollment process, as determined by ITK and/or Pico, each in their sole and absolute discretion. If you establish a User Account with ITK, you agree to provide true, accurate and current information in connection with your User Account. You are responsible for updating and correcting information you have submitted to create and/or maintain your User Account. You are solely responsible for managing your User Account and are prohibited from using other disguised identities when using the Services. We may refuse to grant you a User Account with a name that impersonates someone else, if it may be illegal, vulgar, offensive, and/or if it may be protected by trademark and/or other proprietary rights, as determined by ITK in its sole and absolute discretion. Any Username and Password used for the Services are for individual use only. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of the password you use to access your User Account. You understand and agree that ITK shall have no responsibility for any incident arising out of, or related to, your account settings. ITK will assume that anyone using the Services and/or transacting through your User Account is you. Therefore, you further agree to immediately notify ITK and Pico of any unauthorized use of your Username, Password and/or User Account and/or any other breach of security.
Your User Account is non-transferrable and may not be sold, combined and/or otherwise shared with any other person. If you violate any of these limitations and/or this Terms of Service, we may terminate your User Account immediately. Upon termination, the provisions of this Terms of Service that are by their nature intended to survive termination (including without limitation any disclaimers, limitations of liability, and indemnities) shall survive such termination. If we terminate your User Account, you may not subscribe under a new account unless we formally invite you. If you commit fraud and/or falsify information in connection with your access and/or use of the Services, or in connection with your User Account, your account will be terminated immediately and we reserve the right to: (i) hold you liable for any and all damages that we suffer, (ii) pursue legal action through relevant local and national law enforcement authorities, and/or (iii) notify your Internet Service Provider of any fraudulent activity we associate with you and/or your access to and/or your use of the Services.
Communications From ITK. By using the Services, you agree to receive certain communications in connection with the Services. When you access and/or use the Services, you are communicating with us electronically, and you consent to receive communications from us electronically including but not limited to notices related to the Services provided to you via email. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and/or other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing. Your consent to receive records and notices electronically will remain in effect until you withdraw it. You may withdraw your consent to receive further records and notices electronically at any time by contacting us. If you withdraw your consent to receive such records and notices electronically, we will revoke your access to the Services. Any withdrawal of your consent to receive records and notices electronically will be effective only after we have a reasonable period of time to process your request for withdrawal.
During your access to and/or use of the Services, you may have access to certain information of ITK that is not generally known to others including any and all information relating to ITK and its business including without limitation its business, legal, and operational practices, financial, technical, design, performance characteristics, commercial, marketing, competitive advantage or other information concerning the business and affairs, partnerships and potential partnerships, business model, fee structures, employees, funding opportunities, metrics, object code, source code, architecture, algorithms, techniques, formulas, processes, know-how, systems, ideas, inventions (whether or not patentable or copyrighted), feedback, data, marketing materials, procedures and techniques that have been or may hereafter be provided or shown to the other party, regardless of the form of the communication and the terms and conditions of this Terms of Service (collectively, the “Confidential Information“).

You will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect and prevent any access to the Confidential Information, using no less than a reasonable degree of care to protect such Confidential Information.

The terms of this Section shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement. In addition, ITK shall not be subject to any obligations of confidentiality regarding any information or materials provided by you unless required by law or otherwise set forth in our Privacy Notice. The commercial use, reproduction, transmission or distribution of any information, software or other material available through the Services without the prior written consent of ITK is strictly prohibited.
USE OUTSIDE DEFINED AREA
Please be aware that our Services are not authorized to be used or directed to any person or entity in any jurisdiction where (by reason of nationality, residence, citizenship or otherwise) the publication or availability of the Services and its content, including its products and services, are unavailable or otherwise contrary to local laws or regulations. If this applies to you, you are not authorized to access or use any of the information on the Services. Those who choose to access the Services do so at their own risk and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. This Terms of Service is written in English. To the extent any translated version of this Terms of Service conflicts with the English version, the English version controls. In the event you are using the Services outside of the United States, you agree as follows: (i) you consent to having your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States; (ii) if you are located in a country embargoed by the United States, or are on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of ‘Specially Designated Nationals’ you will not engage in commercial activities on the Services (such as advertising or payments); and/or (iii) you will not use the Services if you are prohibited from receiving products, services or software originating from the United States.
For certain User Accounts ITK will charge an account/subscription fee. For existing subscribers, ITK may change your fee at any time at the end of your subscription period, provided that we notify you by email. All fees are payable in accordance with payment terms in effect at the time the fee or the charge becomes payable. ITK may offer promotional trial subscriptions to access the Services for free or at special discounted prices. If you sign up for a trial subscription, your rights to use the Services are limited by the terms of such trial and will terminate or renew according to the terms of your trial arrangement and/or any applicable additional terms. Please note that we do not provide price protection or refunds for existing subscribers in the event of a price drop or promotional offering for new subscribers. Failure to pay any fees may result in your inability to access or use the Services.
Authorization to Charge for Services.
You must use a payment method accepted by Stripe (our payment processing service as detailed below) to activate and maintain a paid User Account. You authorize ITK to charge you through the payment method you select when registering for a paid User Account and/or purchasing a subscription. You will also be responsible for charges (including applicable taxes) for any products or services that you order that are offered for sale through the Services. If we do not receive payment from the payment method you select, you agree to pay all amounts due hereunder upon our demand and will be solely responsible for any dispute with your payment provider. You will not be charged more than the amount for which you purchased your subscription.
By activating a paid User Account, you agree that we may renew your subscription automatically for the same subscription term on the next business day after your previous subscription ends. You authorize ITK to charge you for the subscription term, unless you cancel your subscription prior to its renewal date through the procedures described in the Subscription Cancellation section below. ITK will charge your credit card (or the other payment method you used) each year, month, or other applicable period (depending on the term that you selected) for the then-current applicable price.
To cancel any subscription and avoid future billing, you may cancel such subscription prior to its renewal date through the Services or by contacting ITK at firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon cancellation, you will continue to have access to your User Account for the period of time that has been prepaid. After you cancel your User Account, we will not charge you any subscription fees after the expiration of your then-current subscription. Please note that we do not provide full or partial refunds for prepaid sums. In any event, you will be able to continue to use the Services throughout the remainder of the subscription period for which you have already paid.
ITK uses a third-party payment platform to process payments. Your credit card information or other payment method will be processed and stored by our third-party payment processor, which is currently ‘Stripe’, but may be changed from time to time in our sole discretion. Stripe’s Terms of Service can be found at https://stripe.com/legal/checkout. You expressly understand and agree that all payments and monetary transactions are handled by such third-party and the use of such platform is governed by the third-party’s terms and conditions and ITK shall have no liability related thereto.
In the event you elect to pay the fees due hereunder via credit card, PayPal or ACH, you authorize ITK to automatically charge the payment account for the fees due and owing hereunder. If your payment account on file is closed or the account information is changed, or if, for any reason, a charge is rejected by your payment account, you shall immediately update your payment account or supply a new payment account, as appropriate. If you are unable to update the payment account with appropriate information, then ITK will suspend Services, without liability, until valid payment account information is provided. If ITK believes that you have participated in a fraudulent chargeback, ITK will pursue its claims against you to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Taxes, Late Fees, Right to Suspend.
All fees are stated in United States Dollars and must be paid in United States Dollars. All fees due and payable under this Terms of Service are exclusive of taxes, which will be added at the prevailing rate from time to time. All fees due and payable by you to ITK hereunder must be paid in full without any deduction, set-off, counterclaim or withholding of any kind unless required by law. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the fees due hereunder are non-refundable. In the event fees are not paid in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein, ITK may immediately suspend Services.

Please submit such notifications by ordinary mail only and as further described by this section. The Copyright Agent should be contacted only if you believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and that such infringement is occurring on the Services linked to and/or from the Services.

Except as regarding any action seeking equitable relief, including without limitation for the purpose of protecting any ITK Confidential Information and/or intellectual property rights, or except in the event the claim meets the requirements set forth in the ‘Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate’ section below and/or if you opt-out of arbitration as described above, any and all controversies and/or claims arising out of or relating to this Terms of Service and/or the Services shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules, in effect at the time the proceedings begin, of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy and/or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. The arbitration shall be held in Cook County, Illinois or any other location we agree to. All information relating to and/or disclosed by any party in connection with the arbitration of any disputes hereunder shall be treated by the parties, their representatives, and the arbitrator as proprietary business information. Such information shall not be disclosed by any party or their respective representatives without the prior written authorization of the party furnishing such information. Such information shall not be disclosed by the arbitrator without the prior written authorization of all parties. The prevailing party of any such arbitration shall be entitled to collect from the other party all costs incurred in such dispute, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and any arbitration costs and fees. Judgment upon the award returned by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties or their assets or application of enforcement, as the case may be. Any award by the arbitrator shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties. The parties hereby waive all rights to judicial review of the arbitrator’s decision and any award contained therein.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, you and ITK each agree that the following claims are exceptions to this arbitration clause and will be brought in a judicial proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction (i) any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, (ii) any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyber-attack), or (iii) any claim that qualifies in small claims court in Cook County, Illinois.
Judicial Forum for Disputes. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you and/or your claim, you and ITK agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Cook County, Illinois. Both you and ITK consent to the foregoing venue and jurisdiction. The prevailing party of any such dispute shall be entitled to collect from the other party all costs incurred in such dispute, including reasonable attorneys’ fees.
