You are responsible for providing all equipment necessary to access the Site and use the Services. You may become a registered user by completing an online registration form and paying the subscription fee. Upon submitting the online registration application, IAS, or its authorized agent, shall process the application. You warrant and agree that you shall: (1) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself on the registration form and (2) update your registered user information so that it is true, accurate, current and complete at all times that you are a registered user. You must promptly advise IAS of all changes including, but not limited to, changes in your address and the credit card used for billing with IAS. If IAS determines or reasonably believes that the information that you have provided is untrue, inaccurate, or incomplete, then IAS or its authorized agent may suspend or terminate your use and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site or Services, preserving IAS’ rights to other legal or equitable relief.
If you are a registered user, IAS will issue to you a user identification name and password to permit you to access the Site and Services.

Additionally, IAS reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel the membership of a registered user who uses his or her user name in violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement or in any other way which IAS, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate.
Your membership, unique user name and password are nontransferable and nonassignable. You agree to (1) promptly advise IAS of any unauthorized use of your unique user name and password or any other breach of security, and (2) assure that you have correctly exited from the IAS Site and Services upon completion of each log-in session. You are responsible and liable for any unauthorized use of the IAS Site and Services unless and until you provide notification to IAS concerning the alleged unauthorized use.

You agree to indemnify IAS concerning all activities conducted through or on your account.
You shall pay, in accordance with billing options selected, any fees or other charges at the rate in effect for the billing period in which those charges are incurred. Charges for the Services and the use of the Site will be based on the date of account activation. If you fail to make timely payments or otherwise breach this Agreement, IAS may terminate your account without prior notice and you agree to pay to IAS the actual costs of collection, including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses.
5. BILLING ERRORS
If you believe that IAS has erroneously charged your credit card account, you agree to promptly notify IAS of such error. If you fail to notify IAS within thirty (30) days after the alleged error first appears on your credit card statement, the charged amount shall be deemed accepted by you for all purposes, including, but not limited to, the resolution of inquiries or investigations made by the issuer of your credit card. You agree to release IAS from all liabilities and claims of loss resulting from any alleged billing error or any discrepancy you fail to report to IAS within thirty (30) days of its submission to you.
The term of this Agreement shall be (1) for monthly members, for a period of one (1) month and shall be automatically renewed for successive one-month periods, (2) for annual members, for a period of one (1) year and shall be automatically renewed for successive one-year periods, and (3) for lifetime members, for the life of the Software, without further action by either IAS or you, until either you or IAS terminates this Agreement as provided below.

You may request cancellation of your status as a registered user by sending the “Discontinue Membership” form located on the Site by e-mail to IAS. IAS will process your request within thirty (30) days after receiving the Discontinue Membership form. Your membership will be discontinued and you will no longer incur membership fees after the end of the then-current monthly or annual term (as applicable), or have access to the Site or its Services after IAS sends a confirmation e-mail to you within such 30-day period that your membership has been discontinued. See “Refund Policy” below to determine the amount of any refund to which you may be entitled.
Without limiting its other rights or remedies, IAS has the right, in its sole discretion, to issue a warning, suspend temporarily, suspend indefinitely, or terminate this Agreement and your access to and use of the Site and Services, with or without prior notification, if: (1) IAS believes that you have breached any terms and conditions of this Agreement or any document incorporated herein, if any, by reference; (2) your credit card cannot be processed or you fail to pay any amount due by the payment due date; (3) IAS is unable to authenticate, substantiate or verify information which you have provided to IAS; (4) IAS has a reasonable belief that your actions might give rise to legal liability for IAS or its users; or (5) IAS decides to cease operations or otherwise discontinue any or all of the Site or Services provided hereunder. Additionally, you understand and agree that neither IAS nor a third party acting on its behalf shall be liable to you for termination of your membership or the denial of access to the Site or Services to you.
8. REFUND POLICY
If you are a monthly or annual member, you will receive 100% of your money back if you cancel within the first 30 days of active membership. If you cancel after the first 30 days, the following applies:
(a) Monthly members.

a. Governing Law. You and IAS agree that this Agreement is, and shall be, governed by, enforced and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, excluding its laws relating to choice of law.
b. Rights to Injunctive Relief. You and IAS acknowledge and agree that remedies at law may be inadequate to provide an aggrieved party with full compensation in the event of the other party’s breach, and that an aggrieved party shall therefore be entitled to seek injunctive relief in the event of any such breach, in addition to seeking all other remedies available at law or in equity.
c. Choice of Forum.

Process in any action or proceeding may be served on any party anywhere in the world.
d. Limitations Period. You and IAS agree that the statute of limitations for causes of actions for suits at law or claims in equity arising from a breach of this Agreement or pertaining to a claim under this Agreement is one (1) year from the date the action accrues or it is forever barred.
e. Assignment. The rights and liabilities of the parties to this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective assignees, successors, executors, and administrators, as the case may be. Neither these terms and conditions nor any rights granted hereunder may be sold, leased, assigned or otherwise transferred by you, in whole or in part.
f. Severability. If any term, clause or provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the validity or operation of any other term, clause or provision. Such invalid term, clause or provision shall be deemed to be severed from these terms and conditions, and the remainder of this Agreement will continue in full force and effect.
g. Attorneys’ Fees. If any party breaches any of its obligations under this Agreement, the breaching party shall pay all reasonable costs and fees, including all attorney’s and other professional’s fees, incurred by any non-breaching party in protecting, enforcing, or interpreting its rights under this Agreement, including fees incurred in pre-trial proceedings and discovery, trial and on appeal. In addition, the nonprevailing party in any suit or action relating to this Agreement shall pay all such costs and fees incurred by the prevailing party.
h. No Waiver. No waiver by IAS shall be deemed a waiver of any subsequent default of the same provision of these terms and conditions.
