Terms of services
- Acceptance of terms
By using iScope’s online and offline products and services (collectively, “the Service”), provided by iScope. (collectively, “iScope,” “We” or “Us”) you agree to be bound by the following Terms of Service (“TOS”). The TOS may be updated by us from time to time without notice. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time at: http://126.96.36.199/?page_id=329
If you are entering into this agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity to these terms and conditions, in which case the terms “you” or “your” shall refer to the entity. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with these terms and conditions, you may not use the Service.
You understand and agree that the Service may include advertisements. You also understand and agree that the Service may include certain communications from iScope, such as service announcements and administrative messages, and that these communications are considered part of iScope membership and that you will not be able to opt out of receiving them. Changes and features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided “as is” and that iScope assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, mis-delivery of or failure to store any user content or settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Service, which access may involve third-party fees (such as Internet Service Provider charges). You are responsible for those fees, including fees associated with the display or delivery of advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Service.
You may not access the Service for purposes of monitoring its performance, availability, or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes, without iScope’s prior written consent. You may not access the Service if you are a direct competitor of iScope, except with IScope’s prior written consent.
- Your account
In consideration of your use of the Service, you represent and warrant that (i) you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction, (ii) your use of the Service does not violate any applicable law or regulation, and (iii) you are human. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted. You also agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service’s registration form (“Registration Data”); and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or iScope has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, iScope has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).
You will receive a password and account designation upon completing the Service’s registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify iScope of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security; and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. iScope cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the TOS, including, without limitation, this Section 2.
We will begin billing you for subscription fees corresponding to your subscription plan, plus any applicable tax, at the end of your free trial period, unless you cancel prior to the end of your free trial. To view the specific details of your subscription plan, check “Account & Settings” or “My Profile” page available to you after logging into the Service. You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial has ended or that your paying subscription has begun.
Your Service subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of your subscription period. We will bill the subscription fee plus any applicable tax to you. Your membership will automatically renew for successive subscriptions, without prior notice to you, unless and until you cancel your membership, or we terminate it. You must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next period’s subscription fees to your payment method.
By using the Service, you are expressly agreeing that we are permitted to bill you a subscription fee, any applicable tax and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the Service. Additional charges may include service level changes you request. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of your subscription and on each renewal thereafter, unless and until you cancel your membership. We will automatically bill you each billing period on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership. All fees and charges are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods, or where you have elected to downgrade service levels or otherwise remove any paid component or feature. If you elect to upgrade your service level or otherwise add any paid component or feature, we will pro-rate the amount due based on the number of days remaining in your billing cycle; provided, however, that any such proration shall be based on your service level or paid components or features in existence immediately prior to your election to upgrade or add paid components or features. We may change the fees and charges in effect or add new fees and charges from time to time. We will inform you of any increase or addition to existing fees and we may offer you a grace-period in which your fees will not increase for a certain period of time. If you do not accept the increase or addition to the existing fees, you may elect to terminate your account during the then current billing period and you shall not be liable for such fee increase after the applicable billing period; however, any later renewal of service will be subject to the increased fee structure. If your credit or debit card reaches its expiration date, your continued use of the Service constitutes your authorization for us to continue billing you, and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
If you change your service level (downgrade it), you may cause the loss of content, information or features for your account. iScope does not accept any liability for such loss. You may cancel your subscription to the Service at anytime, and cancellation will be effective immediately. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS OR ANY FEATURE OF COMPONENT THAT YOU HAVE PAID FOR BUT NOT USED.
In connection with your purchase and/or use of the Service you may be subject to taxes, including, without limitation, sales and use taxes, by any authority which has jurisdiction to impose such taxes. You agree that the obligation and payment of any such taxes shall be your sole and absolute responsibility, and you agree to indemnify iScope pursuant to Section 6(vi) to the extent that IScope incurs any obligations or other liabilities in connection with such taxes.

You acknowledge that iScope may or may not pre-screen Content, but that iScope and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, iScope and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the TOS or is otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content. In this regard, you acknowledge that you may not rely on any Content created by iScope or submitted to iScope.
You acknowledge, consent and agree that iScope may access, preserve and disclose your account information and Content if required to do so by any applicable law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with any applicable legal process; (b) enforce the TOS; (c) respond to claims that any Content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of iScope, its users and the public.
