Agreement to Terms and Conditions:
Your use of this product/service provided by Costigan Reports Inc. (“Costigan”) and any of its contents made available to you is subject to the following terms and conditions (the “Terms”). By subscribing to Costigan’s private subscription blog (the “Product”) or by using the Product in any way you agree that you: (a) have read and understand the Terms, (b) have the capacity and authority to agree to be bound by the Terms; and (c) are bound by all of the Terms.
Changes to Terms and Conditions:
Costigan may change the Terms at any time. A notification of such change(s), as well as the revised terms and conditions, will be posted our Newsfeed page of costiganreports.com You will be responsible for regularly checking and for reviewing any changes to the terms and conditions. By using the Product after any such changes take place, you signify your acceptance of the change(s) and your agreement to be bound by them.
You may not use the Product without a valid subscription from Costigan. To obtain a subscription, you must register for the Product by completing the online registration form. Your subscription will not be valid unless and until Costigan accepts your registration. By registering for the Product, you represent and warrant that all registration information that you provide is true, complete, and accurate, and you agree to notify Costigan promptly of any changes to this registration information.
You understand that, unless you notify us that you wish to terminate your subscription before the end of your then-current subscription term, your subscription will continue to automatically renew for successive terms of the same duration and your credit card will be charged for each such renewal at the subscription fee in effect at the time of that renewal. The term “subscription term” shall refer to the term of your subscription then in effect, regardless of whether it is the initial term or any renewal of that term.
COSTIGAN RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CHANGE THE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE AT ANY TIME WITHOUT NOTICE (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ADDING OR REMOVING FEATURES). IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY SUCH CHANGES, OR IF YOU ARE OTHERWISE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SUBSCRIPTION (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ITS PERFORMANCE OR AVAILABILITY), YOUR ONLY REMEDY WILL BE TO CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION, AS SET FORTH BELOW.
Your subscription is personal to you, and you may not transfer or share your subscription with any other person (including but not limited to your coworkers) other than immediate family members living in the same household, provided that: (i) such family members have read and agree to be bound by these Terms; (ii) your subscription is not simultaneously used by more than one person at any given time; and (iii) you agree to be responsible for any use of your subscription by those other family members.
Charges and Billing Practices:
Subscription fees will be based upon the subscription rates in effect at the start of each subscription term and apply whether or not you actually use the Product during that term.
Costigan reserves the right to change the fees it charges at any time in the future.
Subscription fees and all others fees and charges associated with your subscription (including, but not limited to, any applicable federal, provincial, state, and local taxes) will be billed automatically to the credit card you provide when subscribing. If your credit card is a VISA or MasterCard and the number or expiration date for your credit card changes for any reason (for instance, you get a new number because your old card expired, was stolen, etc.), that updated information may be automatically passed on from your credit card issuer to Costigan, and if we do receive such information, it will be treated by Costigan as if it were originally furnished by you. To learn more about this service being provided by your credit card issuer, please contact them directly.
You must promptly notify Costigan (as set forth below) if any information related to your credit card changes is no longer valid or of any other change to the information you provided Costigan regarding your credit card (including, but not limited to, changes to your billing address or other pertinent contact information). Absent such notification, Costigan will assume that all of the information related to your credit card remains valid and will submit to the card processor all information that it requires for approval, both when you initially subscribe and, if applicable, upon the commencement of any renewal of that subscription. If any subscription fees or other charges billed to your credit card are declined for any reason, Costigan shall have the right to suspend your subscription until such subscription fees or other charges are paid in full. You agree to pay all costs (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Costigan in collecting any unpaid subscription fees or other charges from you.
You may cancel your subscription by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Costigan may immediately cancel your subscription, without notice or liability, if it determines in its sole discretion that: (i) you have breached any portion of these Terms; or (ii) your use of or access to the subscription or the Product violates any applicable law or regulation or otherwise inhibits any other subscriber from using or accessing the Product or any other service offered by Costigan. None of the foregoing limits any other legal, equitable, or contractual rights available to Costigan.
Costigan may, in its sole discretion, choose not to renew your subscription by sending a notice of non-renewal at any time during your subscription term to the e-mail address you provided when completing your registration. You will be deemed to have received this notice, whether or not you saw it or the e-mail address provided by you continues to be valid. In the event of such a notice, your subscription will cease and will not automatically renew at the end of your then-current subscription term.
