You may be required to provide Mapware with a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or any other issuer accepted by us) (“Payment Provider”) in order to purchase any of the options offered on the Services. Your Payment Provider agreement governs your use of the designated credit card, and you must refer to that agreement and not the Agreement to determine your rights and liabilities. By providing Mapware with your credit card number and associated payment information, you agree that Mapware is authorized to immediately invoice your Account for all fees and charges due and payable to Mapware hereunder and that no additional notice or consent is required.

If you purchase a subscription, you will be responsible for payment of the applicable subscription fee for any Services (each, a “Service Subscription Fee”) at the time you select a subscription package (each, a “Service Commencement Date”). Except as set forth in the Agreement, all fees for the Services are non-refundable. No contract will exist between you and Mapware for the Services until Mapware accepts your order by a confirmatory e-mail, SMS/MMS message, or other appropriate means of communication.
9.3 Automatic Renewal. If you purchase a subscription, your subscription will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with the Agreement. After your initial subscription period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically commence on the first day following the end of such period (each a “Renewal Commencement Date”) and continue for an additional equivalent period, at Mapware’ then-current price for such subscription. You agree that your Account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature unless you cancel your subscription at least thirty (30) days prior to the Renewal Commencement Date (or in the event that you receive a notice from Mapware that your subscription will be automatically renewed, you will have thirty (30) days from the date of the Mapware notice), by logging into and going to the “Change/Cancel Membership” page of your “Account Settings” If you do not wish your Account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please contact Mapware at firstname.lastname@example.org or log in and go to the “Change/Cancel Membership” page on your “Account Settings” page. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term; your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires. However, you will not be eligible for a prorated refund of any portion of the subscription fee paid for the then-current subscription period. By subscribing, you authorize Mapware to charge your Payment Provider now, and again at the beginning of any subsequent subscription period. Upon renewal of your subscription, if Mapware does not receive payment from your Payment Provider, (a) you agree to pay all amounts due on your Account upon demand and/or (b) you agree that Mapware may either terminate or suspend your subscription and continue to attempt to charge your Payment Provider until payment is received (upon receipt of payment, your Account will be activated and for purposes of automatic renewal, your new subscription commitment period will begin as of the day payment was received).
9.4 Taxes. The payments required under Section 9.2 of this Agreement do not include any Sales Tax that may be due in connection with the Services provided under this Agreement. If Mapware determines it has a legal obligation to collect a Sales Tax from you in connection with this Agreement, Mapware shall collect such Sales Tax in addition to the payments required under Section 9.2 of this Agreement. If any Services, or payments for any Services, under the Agreement are subject to any Sales Tax in any jurisdiction and you have not remitted the applicable Sales Tax to Mapware, you will be responsible for the payment of such Sales Tax and any related penalties or interest to the relevant tax authority, and you will indemnify Mapware for any liability or expense Mapware may incur in connection with such Sales Taxes. Upon Mapware’ request, you will provide it with official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority, or other such evidence that you have paid all applicable taxes.

Except as set forth above, the Service Subscription Fee for any Service shall be non-refundable. If timely payment cannot be charged to your Payment Provider for any reason, if you have materially breached any provision of the Agreement, or if Mapware is required to do so by law (e.g., where the provision of the Application or the Services is, or becomes, unlawful), Mapware has the right to, immediately and without notice, suspend or terminate any Services provided to you. You agree that all terminations for cause shall be made in Mapware’ sole discretion and that Mapware shall not be liable to you or any third party for any termination of your Account.

You understand that any termination of Services may involve deletion of Your Content associated therewith from our live databases.

All provisions of the Agreement which by their nature should survive, shall survive termination of Services, including without limitation, ownership provisions, indemnification commitments, warranty disclaimers, and limitation of liability.
14.4 No Subsequent Registration. If your registration(s) with or ability to access Mapware Properties, or any other Mapware community is discontinued by Mapware due to your violation of any portion of the Agreement or for conduct otherwise inappropriate for the community, then you agree that you shall not attempt to re-register with or access Mapware Properties or any Mapware community through use of a different member name or otherwise, and you acknowledge that you will not be entitled to receive a refund for fees related to those Mapware Properties to which your access has been terminated. In the event that you violate the immediately preceding sentence, Mapware reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately take any or all of the actions set forth herein without any notice or warning to you.
Mapware Properties can be accessed from countries around the world and may contain references to Services and content that are not available in your country. These references do not imply that Mapware intends to announce such Services or content in your country. Mapware Properties are controlled and offered by Mapware from its facilities in the United States of America. Mapware makes no representations that Mapware Properties are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use Mapware Properties from other countries do so at their own volition and are responsible for compliance with local law.
Please read the following arbitration agreement in this Section (“Arbitration Agreement”) carefully. It requires you to arbitrate disputes with Mapware and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from us. This Section 16 only applies to residents of the United States.
16.1 Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. You agree that any dispute, claim, or request for relief relating in any way to your access or use of the Mapware Properties, to any content or products sold or distributed through the Mapware Properties, or to any aspect of your relationship with Mapware, will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that (1) you may assert claims or seek relief in small claims court if your claims qualify,; and (2) you or Mapware may seek equitable relief in court for infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents). This Arbitration Agreement shall apply, without limitation, to all disputes or claims and requests for relief that arose or were asserted before the effective date of this Agreement or any prior version of this Agreement.
16.2 Arbitration Rules and Forum. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your dispute or claim or request for relief to our registered agent: orporation Service Company, 251 Little Falls Drive, Wilmington, Delaware 19808. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims, counterclaims, or request for relief under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/; all other disputes shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/. JAMS’s rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling JAMS at 800-352-5267. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver from JAMS, Mapware will pay them for you. In addition, Mapware will reimburse all such JAMS’s filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for disputes, claims, or requests for relief totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at another mutually agreed location. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
16.3 Authority of Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to (a) determine the scope and enforceability of this Arbitration Agreement and (b) resolve any dispute related to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement including, but not limited to, any assertion that all or any part of this Arbitration Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitration will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Mapware. The arbitration proceeding will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the arbitral forum’s rules, and the Agreement (including the Arbitration Agreement). The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.
16.4 Waiver of Jury Trial. YOU AND MAPWARE HEREBY WAIVE ANY CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY. You and Mapware are instead electing that all disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be resolved by arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement, except as specified in Section 16.1 above. An arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court and must follow this Agreement as a court would. However, there is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is subject to very limited review.
16.5 Waiver of Class or Other Non-Individualized Relief. ALL DISPUTES, CLAIMS, AND REQUESTS FOR RELIEF WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given dispute, claim, or request for relief, then such aspect must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the State or Federal Courts located in the District of Columbia. All other disputes, claims, or requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
16.6 30-Day Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt out of the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement by sending written notice of your decision to opt out to: firstname.lastname@example.org, within thirty (30) days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your Mapware username (if any), the email address you used to set up your Mapware account (if you have one), and an unequivocal statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of this Agreement will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may currently have, or may enter in the future, with us.
16.7 Severability. Except as provided in Section 16.5, if any part or parts of this Arbitration Agreement are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of the Arbitration Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.
16.8 Survival of Agreement. This Arbitration Agreement will survive the termination of your relationship with Mapware.

18.8 Notice. Where Mapware requires that you provide an e-mail address, you are responsible for providing Mapware with your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address you provided to Mapware is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you any notices required/ permitted by the Agreement, Mapware’ dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice.
