Registration and security
As a condition to using some aspects of the Services, you may be required to register with the Company and select a password and user name ("Company User ID"). If you are accessing the Services through a third party site or service (such as “Facebook Connect”), Company may require that your Company User ID be the same as your user name for such third party site or service. You shall provide the Company with accurate, complete, and updated registration information.

You may not (i) select or use as a Company User ID a name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; or (ii) use as a Company User ID a name subject to any rights of a person other than you without appropriate authorization. The Company reserves the right to refuse registration of or cancel a Company User ID at its discretion. You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password.

Fees and paid services
The intended use of goVerify is for you to pay for access to a guide(s) indexed on goVerify for immediate use. The user is not permitted to download guides with the intention of making a local collection of guides mimicking the goVerify service - neither through a manual nor in any way automated process. goVerify can at any time introduce and enforce mechanisms that prevent large amounts of guides being downloaded in a manner deemed unintended by goVerify.
You might be asked to get in contact with goVerify using support(at)goVerify.it if you download a number of guides deemed too large by the Company.
Certain aspects of the Services may be provided for a fee or charge. If you use paid aspects of the Services, you agree to the pricing and payment terms. You shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Website in connection with such Services selected by you. The Company reserves the right to change its price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Website. Your use of the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of any new charges.
All information that you provide in connection with a purchase or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service must be accurate, complete, and current. You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with a purchase or other monetary transaction interaction with the Service at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes, if any, relating to any such purchases or other monetary transaction interactions. You may cancel your account with the Company at any time; however, there are no refunds for cancellation. In the event that the Company suspends or terminates your account or this Agreement for any reason, you understand and agree that you shall receive no refund or exchange for any Content or Services, any credits you have saved, any license or subscription fees for any portion of the Services, any content or data associated with your account, or for anything else.
> Unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, the Company shall remit payments due to you no later than thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar month in which the applicable fees are received. Payment shall be in the form you select when you register for the Services, or as subsequently updated as permitted by the Services. Payments shall only be made in those months in which the amount due to you totals at least $20 and when payment has been requested. Unpaid amounts due shall accrue until the next month in which the amount due is at least $20. The Company reserves the right to withhold payment or charge back to your account any amounts otherwise due to us under this Agreement, or amounts due to any breach of this Agreement by you, pending the Company's reasonable investigation of such breach. To ensure proper payment, you are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your account, which includes without limitation applicable tax information. If we believe that we are obligated to obtain tax information and you do not provide this information to us after we have requested it, we may withhold your payments until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person or entity from whom we are required to obtain tax information. Any third-party fees related to returned or canceled payments due to a contact or payment information error or omission may be deducted from the newly issued payment. You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your participation in the Services. If you dispute any payment made hereunder, you must notify the Company in writing within thirty (30) days of such payment. Failure to so notify goVerify shall result in the waiver by you of any claim relating to such disputed payment. Payment shall be calculated solely based on records maintained by the Company. No other measurements or statistics of any kind shall be accepted by the Company or have any effect under this Agreement. We may withhold any taxes or other amounts from payments due to you as required by law.
You will indemnify and hold the Company, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and employees harmless (including, without limitation, from all damages, liabilities, settlements, costs and attorneys’ fees) from any claim or demand made by any third party due to or arising out of your access to the Services, use of the Services, your violation of this Agreement, or the infringement by you or any third party using your account of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.
Limitation of liability
In no event shall company or its suppliers, or their respective officers, directors, employees, or agents be liable with respect to the website or the services (i) for any amount in the aggregate in excess of the greater of $100 or the fee paid by you to the company hereunder for the service causing the applicable claim; (ii) for any indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever; (iii) for data loss or cost of procurement of substitute goods or services; or (iv) for any matter beyond company’s reasonable control.
Interaction with third parties
Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found through the Services, including payment and delivery of goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree that the Company shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.
If there is a dispute between participants on the Website, or between users and any third party, you understand and agree that the Company is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users or third parties, you hereby release the Company, its officers, employees, agents, and successors in rights from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Services. You may terminate your use of the Services at any time. The Company may terminate or suspend your access to the Services or your membership at any time, for any reason, and without warning, which may result in the forfeiture and destruction of all information associated with your membership. The Company may also terminate or suspend any and all Services and access to the Website immediately, without prior notice or liability, if you breach any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement. Upon termination of your account, your right to use the Services, access the Website, and any Content will immediately cease. All provisions of this Agreement which, by their nature, should survive termination, shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, and limitations of liability.
The failure of either party to exercise, in any respect, any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. The Company shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond the Company’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including “line-noise” interference). If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub licensable by you except with the Company’s prior written consent. The Company may transfer, assign or delegate this Agreement and its rights and obligations without consent. Both parties agree that this Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and supersedes and cancels all previous written and oral agreements, communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, and that all modifications must be in a writing signed by both parties, except as otherwise provided herein. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind Company in any respect whatsoever. Headings for each section have been included above for your convenience, but such headings do not have any legal meaning, and may not accurately reflect the content of the provisions they precede. Except as expressly set forth below, you and Company agree there are no third party beneficiaries intended under this Agreement.
Arbitration; governing law
The Website is controlled by the Company from offices within Delaware USA, but can be accessed from countries around the world. As each of these places has laws that may differ from those of Delaware it is agreed that this Agreement shall be governed by a jurisdiction of Company’s (goVerify’s) choice.
Copyright dispute policy
The address of Company’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of a claimed copyright infringement ("Designated Agent") is listed at the end of this Section. It is Company’s policy to (1) block access to or remove material that it believes in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users; and (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders.
Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements:
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
1) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
2) Identification of works or materials being infringed;
3) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that Company is capable of finding and verifying its existence;
4) Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, email address;
5) A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material identified in (3) is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
6) A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.
Once Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification is Received by the Designated Agent it is the Company’s policy:
1) to remove or disable access to the infringing material;
2) to notify the content provider, member or user that it has removed or disabled access to the material; and
3) that repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that Company will terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the Services.
Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent:
If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider, member, or user, must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
1) A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member or user;
Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
2) A statement that the content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
3) Content provider’s, member’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, the Company may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Company may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Company’s discretion.
