Summary ...

The Terms of Use listed below are pretty basic for any online service, outlining expectations of both parties as well as the copyright protections.  Because of its length and the reality that many do not take the time to read through 'legalise', here is a summary of the most imporant points.  This summary does not replace the need for you to read the entire document, but is meant to highlight the most important areas.  Your registration assumes that you have read and agreed to the ENTIRE document.

MOST IMPORTANT POINTS:

  • Section 2a:  Your account will be automatically renewed, until cancelled.  If payment is not received, your account will be closed and data could be purged.  It is recommended that you save regular backups of your information in case your account ever needs to be restored.
  • Section 2c:  We are not responsible for emails not received ... it is recommended that you add info.cd@collectiblesdatabase.com to your address book to help with communication, including renewal reminders.
  • Section 17a: You may cancel the account at any time, without penalty.
  • Section 20d: While JPI runs regular backups of the data saved to our servers, it is ultimately your responsibility to secure your information via regular backups.  A utility is offered on the site to make the task very easy.
  • Section 23:  If you are also subscribing to the Sales Board, please note there are separate Terms that outline expectations for that service.  Participatin in that service in any manner (viewing, bidding, buying or selling) assumes and understands you have read and agree to those separate Sales Board Terms of Use.
  • Section 24: Subscribing to Collectibles Database (CollectiblesDatabaseOnline.com) indicates your agreement to the terms and conditions set forth.

The contents of the Site are only for your personal, noncommercial use. You agree not to interrupt, or attempt to interrupt, the operation of the Site in any way.

2. Fee-Based Service Charges
Certain features of this site are available only through the purchase of a site subscription ("Fee-Based Services").

JPI reserves the right to increase fees, surcharges, and site subscription fees, or to institute new fees at any time, upon reasonable notice posted in advance on this Site. JPI will automatically charge your account for renewal of your site subscription as well as for any add-on services you have asked to be included. The renewal charge will be the current published rates for the term of your subscription.

You may check, following subscription help instructions, to determine whether your Registration Data is current and accurate, and, if not, to correct or update your Registration Data. Failure to comply with this provision (including without limitation falsification of any Registration Data) may, at JPI's option, result in immediate suspension or termination of your right to use the Fee-Based Services. JPI is not responsible for lost, misdirected, bounced or otherwise non-received emails to customers and will not, without express implied direction from you, alter your account or billing based on such emails.

(d) You agree to promptly update your Registration Data, following subscription help instructions, in the event of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your subscription, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your password or credit card information.
