For applicable DCC Sites, users who are ages 18 and older may choose to register an account (a user who has registered for an account through a DCC Site is a “Registered User”, each such account a “DCC Account”). If you are under 18 but over 13, you may only become a Registered User with the involvement and consent of a parent or guardian. Users 13 and under may not use the DCC Site. Depending upon the type of DCC Account for which you are registering, and when you purchase or license any products, in addition to your name and contact information, you may be required to submit a valid credit card number, billing address, and related billing information and other information. When you register for a DCC Account you must (i) provide accurate and truthful information about yourself, including, if applicable, billing information, and (ii) update such information from time to time as necessary to keep your registration information current and accurate. By establishing a DCC Account, you represent and warrant you have the right and are authorized to provide the information you provide when you register for such DCC Account. You may be requested to abide by additional DCC Account terms of use.

Your DCC Account is personal to you. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your DCC Account and password and for restricting access to your DCC Account, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your DCC Account. DCC reserves the right to refuse service, terminate or disable the DCC Site (or any portion of the DCC Site) or any DCC Accounts, remove or edit Content, or cancel orders in its sole discretion. You must notify DCC immediately of any breach of or unauthorized use of your DCC Account.

Purchases; Other Terms and Conditions

Additional terms and conditions may apply to purchases or licenses of goods or services (including subscriptions) and to specific portions or features of the DCC Site, including payment terms, Content use restrictions or terms, contests, promotions or other similar features, all of which terms are made a part of these Terms of Use by this reference. All orders from the DCC Site are nonreturnable unless stated otherwise. If a purchase from the DCC Site is eligible for return, DCC does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued in certain circumstances. Upon cancellation of an order, you must return, delete or destroy any copies of any Content you acquired through or from the DCC Site immediately and your use of all or portions of the DCC Site may be restricted. You agree to abide by such other terms and conditions, including where applicable representing that you are of sufficient legal age to use or participate in such service or feature. If there is a conflict between these Terms of Use and the terms posted for or applicable to a specific portion of the DCC Site or for any Content, purchase or service offered on or through the DCC Site, the latter terms shall control with respect to your use of that portion of the DCC Site or the specific Content, purchase or service.

DCC’s obligations, if any, with regard to its products and services are governed solely by the agreements pursuant to which they are provided, and nothing on this DCC Site should be construed to alter such agreements, provide additional warranties, or create additional obligations on the part of DCC.

You must input a valid credit card number and expiration date before you will be allowed to purchase or license products or Content (including subscriptions) from the DCC Site, and you do hereby represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the credit card. You do hereby authorize DCC to charge your credit card for all expenses incurred on your DCC Account. If you dispute any charge on your DCC Account, then you must contact DCC within 10 days of your receipt of your statement containing the disputed charge. All denials of a transaction by your bank, all holds, and all other similar issues are your sole responsibility and should be dealt with between you and your bank. DCC takes reasonable steps to ensure that all data transmitted by DCC is done safely and privately; however, despite those steps, DCC cannot guarantee the complete security of all credit card and other data transmitted by DCC or its processor. Please review the DISCLAIMERS and LIMITATION OF LIABILITY sections set forth below, which are applicable to each user’s use of the DCC Site, including the transmission of credit card and other data.

DCC may make changes to any Content, products, services or features offered on the DCC Site, or to the applicable prices for any such Content, products, services or features, at any time, without notice. DCC attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, DCC does not warrant that product descriptions or other information about any DCC product or service is complete, reliable, current, or error-free. DCC reserves the right to cancel any transaction up until the time the item is shipped. All physical items purchased from DCC are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon DCC’s delivery to the carrier.

Additionally, by using the DCC Site, you acknowledge and agree that Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure.

If, notwithstanding the other provisions of these Terms of Use, DCC is found to be liable to you for any damage or loss which arises out of or is in any way connected with your use of the DCC Site or any Content, DCC’s liability shall in no event exceed the greater of (1) the total amount you paid to DCC in the transaction giving rise to your claim, or (2) US$100.00. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations of liability, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.

This obligation shall survive your use of the DCC Site.

Violation of These Terms of Use

DCC may disclose any information we have about you (including your identity) if we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the DCC Site, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the DCC Site, Content, DCC’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the DCC Site, including DCC’s customers. DCC reserves the right at all times to disclose any information that DCC deems necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

You also agree that any violation by you of these Terms of Use will constitute an unlawful and unfair business practice, and will cause irreparable harm to DCC, for which monetary damages would be inadequate, and you consent to DCC obtaining any injunctive or equitable relief that DCC deems necessary or appropriate in such circumstances. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies DCC may have at law or in equity.

You agree that DCC may, in its sole discretion and without prior notice, terminate your access to the DCC Site or a DCC Account, for cause, which includes (but is not limited to) (1) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (2) discontinuance or material modification of the DCC Site or any service offered on or through the DCC Site, or (3) unexpected technical issues or problems.

You agree to the personal jurisdiction by and venue in the federal court in Denver, Colorado, and waive any objection to such jurisdiction or venue. Any claim under these Terms of Use must be brought within one (1) year after the cause of action arises, or such claim or cause of action is barred. You may not seek recovery for damages related to the use of the DCC Site. In any action to enforce or pertaining to these Terms of Use or the DCC Site, the prevailing party will be entitled to costs and attorneys’ fees.

If any of the provisions of these Terms of Use are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be void or unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary and replaced with a valid provision that best embodies the intent of these Terms of Use, so that these Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and DCC with regard to your use of the DCC Site, and any and all other written or oral agreements or understandings previously existing between you and DCC with respect to such use are hereby superseded and cancelled. DCC will not accept any counter-offers to these Terms of Use, and all such offers are hereby categorically rejected. DCC’s failure to insist on or enforce strict performance of these Terms of Use shall not be construed as a waiver by DCC of any provision or any right it has to enforce these Terms of Use, nor shall any course of conduct between DCC and you or any other party be deemed to modify any provision of these Terms of Use. These Terms of Use shall not be interpreted or construed to confer any rights or remedies on any third parties.

DCC may provide access to international data and, therefore, may contain references or cross references to DCC products, programs and services that are not announced in your country.
