These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement (the “Agreement”) by FreeBB.net (hereinafter, “FreeBB.net”) and you or your company (in either case, “You” or “Your”) concerning Your purchase and use of FreeBB.net’s website, (the “Website”), products and services, including without limitation forum hosting services. The Website, products and services are collectively referred to herein as “the Services.” By using the Services, You represent and warrant that You have read and understood, and agree to be bound by, this Agreement, as modified by FreeBB.net from time to time and posted on the Website.
FEES & PAYMENT; RECURRING CHARGES; LIMITATION ON PERSONAL PLANS
When You register with the Website and select a service plan (Your “Service Plan”), You agree to pay FreeBB.net the aggregate fees (the “Recurring Fee”) indicated in Your Service Plan in consideration for the products and Services provided by FreeBB.net under this Agreement, which fees shall be paid by you on a recurring basis according to the terms of Your Service Plan (the “Recurring Fee”). For example, if Your Service Plan provides for payments to FreeBB.net every month, then the Recurring Fee will become due and payable on a monthly basis. The terms of Your Service Plan are incorporated herein by reference.
Authorization for Recurring Charges
The Recurring Fee is billed on a recurring basis in accordance with Your Service Plan until You terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 15. As such, You agree that the credit or debit card that You provide during registration (or a different credit or debit card if You later change Your credit or debit card, or a different payment method if authorized by Your Service Plan) (the “Active Card”) will be charged the Recurring Fee. You expressly authorize FreeBB.net (or its partners, affiliates, and/or agents) to charge Your Active Card the Recurring Fee and You further acknowledge and agree that FreeBB.net will not obtain additional authorization from You for each Recurring Fee charged to the Active Card. FreeBB.net DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY OVERDRAFT CHARGES OR FEES YOU MAY INCUR FROM YOUR CARD ISSUER OR BANK FOR INSUFFICIENT FUNDS.
Finality of Purchase
ALL PURCHASES ARE FINAL. ALL FEES ARE NONREFUNDABLE. In the event of a discrepancy pertaining to fee collection, You have ten business days from the date of the completed charge to send notification to FreeBB.net about the discrepancy, after which all charges are no longer subject to change. FreeBB.net’s decision not to exercise any specific right or require performance of any specific obligation under this Agreement, including without limitation the collection of monthly or annual fees from You, shall not affect FreeBB.net’s subsequent ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter. Nor shall FreeBB.net’s waiver of Your breach constitute FreeBB.net’s waiver of any subsequent breach.
FreeBB.net may, from time to time, offer various trial or other promotional memberships (“Trial Memberships”), which are subject to these Terms except as otherwise stated in the promotional offers. To avoid payment of any Recurring Fee, You may cancel Your Trial Membership at any time before the expiration of the stated trial period. After expiration of the trial period, You will be billed the recurring Recurring Fee according to Your Service Plan and the Terms stated herein.
PROVISION OF SERVICES; SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
FreeBB.net will provide You with the Services ordered and described in Your Service Plan.
As part of the Services, FreeBB.net shall use reasonable effort to make the services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for (a) planned downtime, or (b) downtime caused by circumstances beyond FreeBB.net’s reasonable control. FreeBB.net guarantees a minimum service level, as indicated in Your Service Plan.

GOVERNING LAW; JURISDICTION AND VENUE
The Website, Services, and this Agreement, including without limitation this Agreement’s interpretation, shall be treated as though this Agreement were executed and performed in Lake Forest, California and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California without regard to its conflict of law principles. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with its fair meaning and not strictly for or against either party.
You agree that any dispute, of any nature whatsoever, between You and FreeBB.net arising out of or relating to the Website, Services, or this Agreement, shall be decided by neutral, binding arbitration before a representative of JAMS in Orange, California unless You and FreeBB.net mutually agree to a different arbitrator, who shall render an award in accordance with the substantive laws of California and JAMS’ Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures. A final judgment or award by the arbitrator may then be duly entered and recorded by the prevailing party in the appropriate court as final judgment. Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ fees and half of the costs of arbitration, except that if the arbitrator finds that the complainant brought the litigation without merit and in bad faith, the arbitrator shall award costs (including, without limitation, the JAMS fee and reasonable attorneys’ fees) to the prevailing party.
Restrictions Against Joinder of Claims
You and FreeBB.net agree that any arbitration shall be limited to each Claim individually. To the full extent under the law, (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other arbitration; (2) there is no right for any Claim to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to employ class action procedures; and (3) there is no right of authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf either of the general public or any other individuals.
Remedies in Aid of Arbitration; Equitable Relief
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or FreeBB.net from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration or confirm an arbitral award, from a court of competent jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude You or FreeBB.net from applying to a court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary. THE PROPER VENUE FOR ANY ACTION PERMITTED UNDER THIS SUBSECTION REGARDING “EQUITABLE RELIEF” WILL BE THE FEDERAL AND STATE COURTS LOCATED IN ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA; THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY OBJECTION TO THE VENUE AND PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS.
Termination at Will
Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, either party may terminate the Agreement without cause and at any time by providing notice in writing to the other party. In order to avoid being billed for the next billing period, You must provide FreeBB.net with notice of termination through the FreeBB.net Admin Panel at least five (5) business days prior to the end of Your billing cycle. Payments will not be prorated for partial use of the Services during any billing cycle.
This Agreement shall automatically terminate in the event that You breach any of Your representations, warranties or covenants under this Agreement. Such termination shall be automatic, shall not require any further action by FreeBB.net, and may result in the automatic and immediate disabling of Your Forum.
Effect of Termination
Any termination of this Agreement automatically terminates all rights and licenses granted to You under this Agreement, including all rights to use the Website and Services. Upon termination, FreeBB.net may, but has no obligation to, in FreeBB.net’s sole discretion, rescind any services and/or delete from FreeBB.net’s systems all Your personal information, Your Content, User Content, and any other files or information that You made available to FreeBB.net or that otherwise relate to Your Forum or Your use of the Services. Subsequent to termination, FreeBB.net reserves the right to exercise whatever means it deems necessary to prevent Your unauthorized use of the Services, including without limitation technological barriers such as IP mapping and direct contact with Your Internet Service Provider.
Upon termination, all rights and obligations created by this Agreement will terminate, except that Sections 1, 2, 6-8, and 10-17 will survive any termination of this Agreement. For clarification, termination of this Agreement will not relieve You of Your obligation to pay any fees owed FreeBB.net.
All notices required or permitted to be given under this Agreement must be in writing. FreeBB.net shall give any notice by email sent to the most recent email address, if any, provided by the intended recipient to FreeBB.net. You agree that any notice received from FreeBB.net electronically satisfies any legal requirement that such notice be in writing. YOU BEAR THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF ENSURING THAT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ON FILE WITH FreeBB.net IS ACCURATE AND CURRENT, AND NOTICE TO YOU SHALL BE DEEMED EFFECTIVE UPON THE SENDING BY FreeBB.net OF AN EMAIL TO THAT ADDRESS. You shall give any notice to FreeBB.net by means of: (1) fax at: 949-916-3152; or mail, postage prepaid, to 26060 Towne Centre Dr, Lake Forest, CA 92610.
This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of FreeBB.net or by the unilateral amendment of this Agreement by FreeBB.net and by the posting by FreeBB.net of such amended version. If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that part will be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement or any breach thereof, in any one instance, will not waive such term or condition or any subsequent breach thereof. This Agreement and all of Your rights and obligations hereunder will not be assignable or transferable by You without the prior written consent of FreeBB.net. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns. You and FreeBB.net are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Except for the FreeBB.net Parties and the Indemnified Parties as and to the extent set forth above, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third-party rights by You would cause irreparable injury to FreeBB.net and FreeBB.net’s licensors and suppliers, and would therefore entitle FreeBB.net or FreeBB.net’s licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief. The headings in this Agreement are for the purpose of convenience only and shall not limit, enlarge, or affect any of the covenants, terms, conditions or provisions of this Agreement.
