The parties to these Terms are Internet KBDM, LLC (referred to as “Get Business Pro”, “we”, “us” or “our”) and each User of our Service (“you”, “your”). A “User” may be either a Customer, Host or a Participant. A “Customer” is the person (typically, an entity or organization) that has subscribed to our Service. A “Host” is a person, such as an employee or independent contractor of the Customer, to whom the Customer has given the authority to host meetings and use other Services. A “Participant” is a person who has access to or uses the Services, other than a Host. A Participant is bound by these Terms, but is not entitled to the rights and privileges of a Customer or Host. A person who is a Host may also access and use the Services but in that capacity will be a Participant rather than a Host. A “person” is an individual or any type of legal entity. You represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into these Terms, on behalf of yourself and/or the entity that you represent for purposes of such access and use. You may not access or use the Site or accept the Terms if you do not have the capacity to enter into a legally binding agreement.
2. ACCESS TO THE SITE
2.1 Right to Use. Subject to these Terms, Get Business Pro grants you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited right to access and use the Services solely for personal use. You are responsible for obtaining all equipment and telecommunications services necessary to use our Services. You are responsible for your Users’ access and use of Services. Each subscription login gives the Subscriber the right to have one meeting at the same time. If the Subscriber wishes to have more than one meeting taking place simultaneously, the Subscriber must purchase the number of subscription logins equal to the number of simultaneous meetings desired.
2.2 Certain Restrictions. The rights granted to you in these Terms are subject to the following restrictions: (a) you shall not license, sell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, distribute, host, or otherwise commercially exploit the Services, whether in whole or in part, or any content displayed on or through the Services except in compliance with these Terms and applicable law; (b) you shall not modify, make derivative works of, disassemble, reverse compile or reverse engineer any part of the Services; (c) you shall not access the Services in order to build a similar or competitive website, product, or service; and (d) except as expressly stated herein, no part of the Services may be copied, reproduced, distributed, republished, downloaded, displayed, posted or transmitted in any form or by any means.

We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
3.3 Eligibility. A. We do not undertake to verify the validity or functionality of the email address provided by any User. It is a violation of these Terms for a User to supply a non-functional, fake, or impersonated email address and user name. B. The Services are available only to persons who are capable under applicable law of forming valid contracts. If you are a natural person using the Services on behalf of an entity, then by registering in the name of the entity and using the Services you represent and warrant that the entity may lawfully agree to these Terms and that you have lawful authority to bind that entity to the terms and conditions of these Terms. If you are a child (under the age of 18 years), or lack legal capacity, then you are not permitted to subscribe to the Services as a Customer. But individuals under the age of 18 or who lack legal capacity may use our Services when invited to join a meeting hosted by a Customer or Host who is 18 or older. In that case, the Customer or Host of the meeting is responsible for obtaining any parental or other consent necessary for use of the Services by persons under age 18 or who lack legal capacity under their accounts.
4. OWNERSHIP OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
4.1 Reservation of Rights. The Services and their entire contents, features, and functionality (including all information, software, text, displays, images, video, and audio, and the design, selection, and arrangement thereof, but excluding User Content, defined below) are owned by Get Business Pro, its licensors, or other providers of such material and are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, and other intellectual property or proprietary rights laws. You must not reproduce, distribute, modify, create derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, republish, download, store, or transmit any of the material on our website or Services (other than User Content), except (i) to the extent expressly permitted in a White Label Agreement to which you and we are parties, and (ii) through use of our API. You also must not delete or alter any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary rights notices from copies of materials from this Services. No right, title, or interest in or to the Services or any content on our website is transferred to you, and all rights not expressly granted are reserved by us; however, we claim no ownership of any User Content. There are no implied licenses or other rights granted under these Terms.
4.2 Copyright/Trademark Information. Copyright © 2020 KBDM, LLC. All rights reserved. All trademarks, logos and service marks (“Marks”) displayed on our site or with our Services are our property or the property of our licensors or other third parties. Our Marks include: “Get Business Pro”, “GetBusinessPro.com”, “CONEXX by BP”, “CONEXX by Business Pro”, “Get Business Pro Enterprise”, “Get Business Pro Private Branding” and “Get Business Pro Screen Sharing”. You are not permitted to use our Marks without our prior written consent or the consent of such third party that owns the Marks.
5. USER CONTENT
5.1 User Content. “User Content” means information that you send, transmit, display or upload in using the Services.
A. You alone are responsible for your User Content, including its legality, reliability, accuracy, and appropriateness. You represent and warrant that (i) you have the legal right and consent of any necessary third party to send, transmit, display or upload User Content and that User Content be processed and used in accordance with these Terms; (ii) you have given third parties any required notices with respect to User Content; and (iii) such processing and use of User Content does not violate, misappropriate, or infringe any rights of any third party.
B. You may expose yourself to liability if, for example, your User Content violates our Acceptable Use Policy. We are not responsible or liable to you or to any third party for the legality, content or accuracy of User Content posted by you or any other User. You assume all risks associated with use of your User Content, including any reliance on its legality, accuracy, completeness or usefulness by others, or any disclosure of your User Content that personally identifies you or any third party. You may not represent or imply to others that Get Business Pro provides, sponsors, or endorses User Content.
C. Get Business Pro and the other Protected Parties (defined in Section 7) have no responsibility or liability for (i) User Content transmitted or viewed with our Services, (ii) errors or omissions in User Content, or (iii) any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, reliance on, access to, or denial of access to User Content. We are not obligated to monitor, block, or remove User Content; however, we may do so at any time without notice to you if we determine that it violates these Terms.
6.2 Backup and Virus Protection. If any User wishes to keep their User Content secure, then the User must encrypt such information, and maintain the security of encryption codes and keys, independently of Get Business Pro. This is because we do not control the security of any User’s communications channels, bandwidth, or information technology infrastructure. You are solely responsible for creating and maintaining your own backup copies of your User Content if you desire. Get Business Pro may, for its own benefit in order to protect its systems against failures and loss of data and to enable resumption and continuation of its website in that event, may maintain parallel, redundant, backup, or other archival systems. Our current policy is to store recordings of meetings conducted through the Service on Amazon servers for as long as the Customer remains an active client in good standing. However, other archived information also is subjected to routine deletion and replacement with more recent material without notice to you and without any responsibility to you. Such archived information may vary from time to time depending upon the technology we use and your information may be included in such archived information, but in all events we do not operate or maintain such systems for your benefit. You are also responsible for implementing sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for anti-virus protection and accuracy of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to our website for any reconstruction of any lost data.
6.3 License. You retain copyright and any other rights that you already hold in User Content you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. You hereby grant (and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant) to Get Business Pro an irrevocable, nonexclusive, royalty-free and fully paid, worldwide license to reproduce, distribute, publicly display and perform, prepare derivative works of, incorporate into other works, and otherwise use and exploit your User Content, and to grant sublicenses of the foregoing rights, in all events solely for the purposes of including your User Content in the Site and providing Services. You hereby irrevocably waive (and agree to cause to be waived) any claims and assertions of moral rights or attribution with respect to your User Content.
6.4 Acceptable Use Policy. The following terms constitute our “Acceptable Use Policy”:

6.5 Enforcement. We reserve the right (but have no obligation) to review any User Content, and to investigate and/or take appropriate action against you in our sole discretion if you violate the Acceptable Use Policy or any other provision of these Terms, or otherwise create liability for us or any other person. Such action may include removing or modifying your User Content, terminating your Account in accordance with these Terms and/or reporting you to law enforcement authorities.
6.6 Content May Be Offensive. Your use of the Service may expose you to materials that you consider salacious, obscene, pornographic, hateful, misleading, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable from other Users. You understand and accept this risk. You shall not target children with, and shall not permit children to have access to User Content that should reasonably be considered salacious, obscene, pornographic, hateful, misleading, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable.

If you or another User does not consent to being recorded, you or the User can leave the meeting or webinar. We disclaim all liability for your recording of audio, video or shared data.

12. ARBITRATION; JURY WAIVER; CLASS ACTION WAIVER; LIMITATIONS PERIOD
12.1 Arbitration Agreement. Please read the following Arbitration Agreement carefully. It is part of your contract with the Company and affects your rights. It contains procedures for MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION AND A CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
12.1.1 Applicability. All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by us that cannot be resolved informally or in small claims court shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of this Arbitration Agreement.
12.1.2 Arbitration Rules. An arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (“Arbitration Rules”) governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of your residence, unless you reside outside of the United States (in which case the arbitration will be held in a location agreed to by you and us). Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the AAA. If non-appearance based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
12.1.3 Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Get Business Pro, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim, to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available under applicable law. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and Get Business Pro.
12.1.4 Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS BASIS, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED JOINTLY OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER.
12.1.5 Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with the Company.
12.1.6 Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Arbitration Agreement.
12.1.7 Claims Not Subject to Arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of patent, copyright, trademark or trade secrets shall not be subject to this Arbitration Agreement. In addition, either you or the Company may bring an individual action in small claims court in lieu of arbitration.
12.2 Governing Law. These Terms are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland (U.S.A.) without regard to it provisions on conflict of laws; except that the Federal Arbitration Act governs Section 12.1.
12.3 Courts. In any circumstances where the foregoing Arbitration Agreement permits the parties to litigate in court, the parties hereby agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the Maryland State and United States Federal courts located nearest Annapolis, MD, for such purpose.
12.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY.
12.5 One Year Limitations Period. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you and we agree that any claim or cause of action arising or alleged to arise out of, or related to, these Terms or use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such cause of action arose, or else such claim or cause of action shall be permanently barred. You and we agree that this limitation applies and is intended to waive any statute or law to the contrary which might otherwise apply, unless waiver of such statute or law is prohibited by express terms thereof and you are a member of the class of persons as to whom such prohibition against waiver applies.

If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will be unimpaired and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Your relationship to us is that of an independent contractor, and neither you or us is an agent or partner of the other. These Terms, and your rights and obligations herein, may not be assigned, subcontracted, delegated, or otherwise transferred by you without our prior written consent (except that resellers of our Service may offer and sell the Service to others, but only on and subject to these Terms). Any attempted assignment, subcontract, delegation, or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. We may freely assign these Terms. The terms and conditions set forth in these Terms shall be binding upon successors and permitted assignees.
13.8 Term and Termination. Subject to this Section, these Terms will remain in full force and effect while you access and/or use the Services. We may suspend or terminate your rights to access and/or use the Services (including your Account) at any time for any reason at our sole discretion, including for any use of the Services in violation of these Terms. Upon termination of your rights under these Terms, your Account and right to access and use the Services will terminate immediately. You understand that any termination of your Account may involve deletion of your User Content associated with your Account from our live databases. We will not have any liability whatsoever to you for any termination of your rights under these Terms, including for termination of your Account or deletion of your User Content. Even after your rights under these Terms are terminated, any provision of these Terms that, in order to give proper effect to its intent, should survive such expiration or termination, will survive the expiration or earlier termination of these Terms, including Sections 5, 6.7, and 7 through 12.
13.9 No Insurance. In connection with the damage and liability waivers and limitations in these Terms, you acknowledge that we and the other Protected Parties are not insurers and that it is your choice and responsibility whether or not to protect your own interests by acquiring and maintaining insurance for risks associated with the Services. You hereby waive subrogation for any and all such insurable risks.
