If your account (site account or other channel) is used to submit, post, or add content to the Services, (collectively, "User Submissions"), you agree to accept sole responsibility for those User Submissions, including the information, statements, facts, and material contained in any form or medium (e.g., text, audio, video, and photographic) therein. These User Submissions include photography taken of you at any Board Services events. When you provide any User Submission to us, you grant us, our affiliates, and our partners, a worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free, nonexclusive, sub-licensable license to use, reproduce, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly perform, publicly display, transfer, transmit, distribute, and publish such User Submission, and subsequent versions thereof. You agree you will not attempt to enforce any so-called "moral rights" in your User Submission against us, our affiliates, and/or our partners. This license will apply to the distribution and the storage of your User Submission in any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed. By using the Board’s Services, you agree that none of your User Submissions will: infringe on the intellectual property, trade secret, privacy, publicity, or other rights of others; contain false statements or misrepresentations that could damage the Board or any third party; include obscene, libelous, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, hateful, sexually explicit, sexually oriented, profane, or embarrassing material, as determined by the Board in its sole discretion; be illegal or otherwise objectionable; contain the personal information of any third party, including, without limitation, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, Social Insurance numbers, and credit card numbers; encourage or facilitate insider trading or anticompetitive behaviour; include commercial advertisements or solicitations; or purport to or actually provide legal or professional advice.  Because the Board’s Services are available to the public, we cannot guarantee that User Submissions will remain confidential. Although you are solely responsible for the content you provide and we do not have a policy of reviewing or monitoring all User Submissions, we reserve the right to pre-screen and/or monitor User Submissions. If we become aware of User Submissions that violate these Terms & Conditions or that we believe to be otherwise objectionable, we may reject or delete them, or take other action, without notice to you and in our sole discretion. 

As part of User Submissions and participation in Services, always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children. Toronto Region Board of Trade does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any User Submissions and, therefore, Toronto Region Board of Trade specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the User Submissions and any actions resulting from your participation in any Services.  

User Submissions uploaded or shared in Services may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download and/or use the materials. 

Membership Terms

The Board offers memberships at Individual and Corporate tiers. See Membership Section for details. Corporate memberships (currently Profile, ProfilePlus, Influence and Influencer) comprise of annual terms and are billed annually. The corporate memberships are renewed annually at user discretion.  

Individual memberships can be purchased for and are subsequently billed at monthly or annual terms, with automatic renewal.  

Any Services included or purchased in monthly or annual memberships expire at the end of the term without credit and cannot be carried over. 

Changes

The Board may change or discontinue any aspect of its Services at any time, including content or features. The Board also reserves the right to change the terms and conditions applicable to use of the Services. Use of the Services after such changes shall be deemed to be acceptance by User of such changes.  

Fees

To the extent the Services or any portion thereof is made available for any fee, you will be required to follow a payment plan and provide information regarding your credit card or other payment instrument. You represent and warrant to the Board that such information is true and that you are authorized to use the payment instrument. You will promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in your billing address or credit card expiration date) that may occur. You agree to pay the Board the amount that is specified in the payment plan (as well as any applicable taxes) in accordance with the terms of such plan and this Terms & Conditions. You hereby authorize the Board to bill your payment instrument in accordance with the terms of the applicable payment plan (as well as any applicable taxes) until you terminate your account, and you further agree to pay any charges so incurred. If you dispute any charges you must let the Board know within sixty (60) days after the date that the Board charges you. We reserve the right to change Board prices. Your continued use of the Service after the price change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to pay the changed amount. You shall be responsible for all taxes associated with the Services. Recurring Payment:  If you select a Service with an auto renewal feature, you authorize the Board to maintain your account information and charge that account automatically upon the renewal of the Service you choose with no further action required by you. In the event that the Board is unable to charge your account as authorized by you when you enrolled in a Recurring Payment, the Board, may, in its sole discretion: (i) bill you for your Service and suspend your access to the Service until payment is received, and/or (ii) seek to update your account information through third party sources (i.e., your bank or a payment processor) to continue charging your account as authorized by you. The Board may change the price for Recurring Payments from time to time and will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for Recurring Payments will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use Recurring Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by cancelling your Recurring Payment before the price change goes into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully. Payments are non-refundable and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. You may cancel a Recurring Payment at any time, but if you cancel your subscription before the end of the current subscription period, we will not refund any subscription fees already paid to us. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current subscription period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our users ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance. 

You can cancel a recurring payment by sending an email to cancelrequest@bot.com with your account name.  Your membership will subsequently be set to expire at the end of the term.  Limitation of Liability IN NO EVENT SHALL THE BOARD, OR BOARD SUPPLIERS, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS PROFITS OR REVENUES, COSTS OF REPLACEMENT GOODS, LOSS OR DAMAGE TO DATA ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THIS WEBSITE OR ANY LINKED SITE, DAMAGES RESULTING FROM USE OF OR RELIANCE ON THE INFORMATION OR MATERIALS PRESENTED ON THIS WEBSITE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY EVEN IF THE BOARD, OR ITS RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
