Terms of the Contract

This Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use (this “Agreement”) governs your use of all digital products and services from Caribjournal.com and newsletters (“Caribbean Journal”) that are made available from time to time, including without limitation, any Web pages, services, content, newsletters, databases and information therein (collectively, the “Services”), unless other terms and conditions expressly govern. Caribbean Journal products and services are provided either directly by Caribbean Journal One LLC. and its subsidiaries (“we”, “us”, “our”) or through various third-party platforms and devices (e.g., mobile and tablet apps).

If you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, you should check the box indicating your agreement to the terms of this Agreement on the registration page for the Service. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, you should not check the box but you will not be able to proceed with the registration process for the respective Service and become a subscriber. To the extent you have access to, or are using, a Service without having completed our registration process, you are hereby notified that your continued use of a Service is subject to many of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as explained in Section 7 below.

1. Changes to Subscriber Agreement

We may change the terms of this Agreement at any time by notifying you of the change in writing or electronically (including without limitation, by email or by posting a notice on the Service that the terms have been “updated” or similar words). The changes also will appear in this document, which you can access at any time by going to the Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use link at the footer of those Services which are made available through a website or to the Legal or Legal Notices area of those Services which are made available as an application. By using a Service after changes are made to this Agreement you signify that you agree to be bound by such changes.

2. Privacy and Your Account

Registration data and other information about you are subject to our Privacy Policy. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where Caribbean Journal has facilities, and by using a Service online, you consent to the transfer of information outside of your country. If you access a Service using a password, you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of that password. If you provide someone else with access to your password to a Service, they will have the ability to view information about your account and make changes through the website for the Service. Similarly, if you tell someone the answer to your security question for a Service, they will be able to request information about your account and make changes through Customer Service. You agree to notify us promptly if you change your billing and email address 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 shall be deemed sufficient notice.

3. Caribbean Journal Subscription Service Fees and Payments

From time to time, Caribbean Journal users may be offered a paid subscription service to the website or newsletters (“Paid Service”). With respect to Paid Services, 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 account for a Service (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Unless you have paid by check, we will bill all charges automatically to your credit card. Subscription fees will be billed at the beginning of your subscription and any renewal. As a general matter, all fees and charges are non-refundable. We reserve the right to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion. If we do issue a refund or credit, we are under no obligation to issue the same or similar refund in the future. Please visit our Memberful Center for more details about our refund policies. We may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance and an opportunity to cancel. If you need to update your credit card details or you want to use a different credit card, please visit our Customer Center to make changes. If you believe someone has accessed a Service using your user name and password without your authorization, please immediately notify us by contacting our Customer Center. You are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access a Service through an Internet access provider or other Third Party service.

4. Term; Cancellation and Renewal

4.1 Term and Renewal. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services. With respect to Paid Services, your subscription will renew monthly until it is canceled in accordance with this Section. With respect to Caribbean Journal newsletters, your subscription will renew annually. For annual subscriptions, we will notify you of the pending renewal of the Caribbean Journal newsletter at least 30 days prior to the date of the Caribbean Journal newsletter subscription renews, except as otherwise required by law. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term to your credit card unless you pay by check.

4.2 Cancellation Policy for other subscriptions. We may cancel your subscription at any time upon notice to you. You may cancel your subscription prior to any renewal term by following the procedures described in the Cancellation and Refund Policy on our Customer Center.

5. Subscription Policies.

By subscribing to a Service, you are subject to our Subscription policies which can be found at any time in our Customer Center. Please read these carefully as they set forth our refund, cancellation and pricing policies and other important information. We reserve the right to change these policies at any time and you should refer to them frequently to ensure you are aware of current policies.

6. Availability of Service through other Platforms; Third-Party Payment Services.

6.1 If you access a Service through a mobile application or other type of third party platform, the applicable End User License Agreement for the mobile service through which you downloaded the mobile application may apply in addition to the terms of this Agreement and you agree that you are subject to such application or platforms terms in addition to this Agreement.

6.2 With respect to Paid Services, we may use a third party not affiliated with us to process payments for a Service (a “Third Party Processor”). You agree that this Third Party Processor is solely responsible for controlling, handling, processing, or fulfilling purchases processed through its systems. When using such Third Party Processor you may be subject to additional terms of use/service and privacy policy(ies) of the Third Party Processor.

7. Limitations on Use.

7.1 Only one individual may access a Service at the same time using the same user name or password, unless we agree otherwise.

7.2 The text, graphics, images, video, artwork, metadata and other data, design, organization, compilation, look and feel, advertising and all other protectable intellectual property, including but not limited to any copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names, trade dress, patent rights, or database rights (the “Content”) available through the Services are our property or the property of our advertisers and licensors and are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws.

We require users to respect our copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights and shall enforce the same.

8. Copyright Policy. It is our policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. For more information about our policy, please see our Copyright Policy.

11. DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY.

YOU AGREE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO, AND USE OF, THE SERVICES AND THE CONTENT, TOOLS, PRIZES AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICES IS ON AN “AS-IS”, “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

IF ANY APPLICABLE AUTHORITY HOLDS ANY PORTION OF THIS SECTION TO BE UNENFORCEABLE, THEN THE CARIBBEAN JOURNAL PARTIES’ LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST POSSIBLE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

12. Agreement to Arbitrate.

12.1 The parties acknowledge that any statutory or common law claims related to intellectual property may require forms of equitable relief that are best administered by courts; accordingly, the parties agree that except for statutory or common law claims related to intellectual property and disputes that qualify for small claims court, any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory, will be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any federal or state court of competent jurisdiction located in the County of MIAMI-DADE in the State of FLORIDA. For more information about arbitration, the AAA and the arbitration process, please consult the American Arbitration Association web site at adr.orgYou agree that by entering into this Agreement, you and we are each waiving the right to trial by jury, except as otherwise stated above. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted and, by entering into this Agreement, you are giving up the ability to participate in a class action. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope, application, and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for the court to decide. As stated in Section 15 below, FLORIDA law applies to any arbitration under this section, but the parties acknowledge that the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This agreement to arbitrate shall survive termination of this Agreement. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.

12.2 Unless you and we agree otherwise, the arbitration will take place either in the subscriber’s county of principal residence or the County of MIAMI-DADE in the State of FLORIDA. For claims of $14,000 or less, you can choose whether you would like arbitration carried out based only on documents submitted to the arbitrator, or by a hearing in person, or by phone.

12.3 The arbitrator may award money or equitable relief in favor of only the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. To reduce the time and expense of the arbitration, the arbitrator will not provide a statement of reasons for his or her award unless requested to do so by both parties. Unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

13. General. This Agreement contains the final and entire agreement between us regarding your use of the Services and supersedes all previous and contemporaneous oral or written agreements regarding your use of the Services. We may discontinue or change the Services, or their availability to you, at any time. This Agreement is personal to you, which means that you may not assign your rights or obligations under this Agreement to anyone. No third party is a beneficiary of this Agreement. You agree that this Agreement, as well as any and all claims arising from this Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, United States of America, without regard to any conflict or choice of law principles. For all litigation which may be brought, subject to the requirements for arbitration hereunder, with respect to any controversy or claim, arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any relationship between us, the sole jurisdiction and venue for such litigation will be an appropriate federal or state court located in the County of New York in the State of New York. Our failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement or to respond to a breach by you or other parties of this Agreement shall not in any way waive our rights to subsequently enforce any term or condition of this Agreement. This Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods
