1. Privacy & Security UnitConnect’s privacy and security policies may be viewed at http://www.UnitConnect.com . UnitConnect reserves the right to modify its privacy and security policies in its reasonable discretion from time to time. When users initially log in, they will be asked whether or not they wish to receive marketing and other non-critical Service-related communications from UnitConnect from time to time. User may opt out of receiving such communications at that time or at any subsequent time. Note that because the Service is a hosted, online application, UnitConnect occasionally may need to notify all users of the Service (whether or not they have opted out as described above) of important announcements regarding the operation of the Service.
3. User’s Responsibilities User is solely responsible for all activity occurring within User’s account(s) and shall abide by all applicable local, state, national and foreign laws, treaties and regulations in connection with User’s use of the Service, including those related to data privacy, international communications and the transmission of technical or personal data. User shall: (i) notify UnitConnect immediately of any unauthorized use of any password or account or any other known or suspected breach of security; (ii) report to UnitConnect immediately and use reasonable efforts to stop immediately any copying or distribution of Content that is known or suspected by User; and (iii) not impersonate another UnitConnect user or provide false identity information to gain access to or use the Service. In addition, User is solely responsible for the content of all visual, written or audible communications sent by User. User agrees that it will not use the Services to send unsolicited mass mailings outside of User’s company or organization. User further agrees not to use the Services to communicate any message or material that is harassing, libelous, threatening, obscene, indecent, would violate the intellectual property rights of any party or is otherwise unlawful, that would give rise to civil liability, or that constitutes or encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, under any applicable law or regulation. Although UnitConnect is not responsible for any such communications, UnitConnect may delete any such communications of which UnitConnect becomes aware, at any time without notice to User.
4. Account Information and Data UnitConnect does not own any data, information or material that User submits to the Service in the course of using the Service (“Customer Data”). User, not UnitConnect, shall have sole responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, appropriateness, and intellectual property ownership or right to use of all Customer Data, and UnitConnect shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage, inaccuracy, loss of or failure to store any Customer Data. UnitConnect reserves the right to withhold, permanently remove and/or discard Customer Data without notice for any breach, including, without limitation, User’s non-payment of Service fees. Upon termination for cause, User’s right to access or use Customer Data shall immediately cease, and UnitConnect shall have no obligation to maintain, preserve or forward any Customer Data.
5. Technical, Customer, and Sales Support Technical, customer, and sales support is only provided via email or other online means and is not provided via phone or traditional mail.
6. Intellectual Property Rights UnitConnect (and its licensors, where applicable) shall own all right, title and interest, including all related Intellectual Property Rights, in and to the UnitConnect Technology, the Content and the Service and any suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, feedback, recommendations or other information provided by User or any other party relating to the Service. This Agreement is not a sale and does not convey to User any rights of ownership in or related to the Service, the UnitConnect Technology or the Intellectual Property Rights owned by UnitConnect. The UnitConnect name, the UnitConnect logo, and the product names associated with the Service are trademarks of UnitConnect or third parties, and no right or license is granted to use them. Accordingly, User will not reproduce, transmit, publish or distribute such Content to any third party without the express written consent of UnitConnect, which may be granted or withheld in UnitConnect’s sole and absolute discretion, except that User may print out a copy of Content solely for User’s personal use. In doing so, User will not remove or alter, or cause to be removed or altered, any copyright, trademark, trade name, service mark, or any other proprietary notice or legend appearing on any of the Content.
8. Charges and Billing UnitConnect charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. UnitConnect will automatically renew User’s subscription and charge User’s credit card every month or year, depending on User’s subscription type. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. Please note payment for the Service is non-refundable once User has subscribed to the Service, whether on a monthly or annual basis. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months or years of service. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes. User must provide UnitConnect with a valid credit card as a condition to subscribing to the Service. UnitConnect reserves the right to modify its fees and charges and to introduce new charges at any time, upon at least 15 days prior notice to User, which notice may be provided by e-mail or posted on the UnitConnect website or application. User has the ability to upgrade or downgrade the Service at any time during the term (downgrades are only available with monthly subscription accounts, from one paying level to another — downgrades from paying accounts to free accounts are not possible). Such upgrade or downgrade will take effect immediately. For any upgrade or downgrade in package level, the credit card that you provided as part of your Registration Data will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle. In the case of downgrades to a monthly subscription, there will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service. The expiration/renewal date of Service, whether monthly or annual, will not change. Fees may not be credited towards other Services. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. User is required to maintain a valid credit card on file from the Subscription Settings page of their account at all times. Regardless of User’s payment method, User’s subscription to the Service authorizes UnitConnect to charge User’s credit card. This authorization shall remain valid until 30 days after termination or cancellation of User’s account, whereupon UnitConnect may charge User’s credit card for any outstanding charges as may be applicable.
9. Excess Data Storage Fees The maximum disk storage space provided to User at no additional charge is 100 MB per account. If the amount of disk storage required exceeds these limits, User will be charged the then-current storage fees. UnitConnect shall not be responsible for notifying User when their total storage used reaches its approximate maximum; furthermore, any failure by UnitConnect to so notify User shall not affect User’s responsibility for such additional storage charges. UnitConnect reserves the right to establish or modify its general practices and limits relating to storage of Customer Data.
10. Renewal UnitConnect charges and collects in advance for use of the Service. UnitConnect will automatically renew User’s subscription and charge User’s credit card every month or year at the commencement of each consecutive renewal term, which shall be monthly or annual depending on User’s subscription type. The renewal charge will be based upon the then-current license fee in effect at the time of renewal. UnitConnect’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and User shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties, excluding only United States (federal or state) taxes based solely on UnitConnect’s income. User agrees to provide UnitConnect with complete and accurate billing and contact information. This information includes User’s legal name or company name, credit card and billing address, e-mail address, name and telephone number of an authorized billing contact. User agrees to update this information immediately upon change to it or in the event of a lost or stolen credit card. If the contact or billing information User has provided is false or fraudulent, UnitConnect reserves the right to terminate User’s access to the Service in addition to any other legal remedies.
11. Non-Payment and Suspension In addition to any other rights granted to UnitConnect herein, UnitConnect reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and User’s access to the Service if User’s account becomes delinquent (falls into arrears) or User fails to maintain a valid credit on file for their account. Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. If User or UnitConnect initiates termination of this Agreement and User’s access to the Service, User will be obligated to pay the balance due on User’s account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. User agrees that UnitConnect may charge such unpaid fees to User’s credit card or otherwise bill User for such unpaid fees. UnitConnect reserves the right to impose a reconnection fee in the event User is suspended and thereafter requests access to the Service. User agrees and acknowledges that UnitConnect has no obligation to retain Customer Data and that such Customer Data may be irretrievably deleted if User’s account is 15 days or more delinquent.
12. Cancellation and Termination upon Expiration User may cancel the Service, unless bound by an annual term, from the Subscription Settings page of User’s account at any time. Cancellation requests delivered by email, mail or telephone are not a guaranteed method of cancellation. For monthly subscriptions, User is purchasing the Service for full monthly terms, meaning if User attempts to terminate Service prior to the end of a monthly term, User will be responsible for the full month’s charges to the end of the then-current term, including, without limitation, unbilled charges, which will immediately become due and payable. Expiration of the term or termination of Service will not excuse User from paying all accrued and unpaid charges due under this Agreement. For fixed term annual subscriptions (i.e., twelve (12) months), User is purchasing the Service for the full term, to be paid upfront annually. User’s annual subscription will automatically renew after the initial fixed term is over. Early cancellation of an annual subscription is not eligible for any refund, whether in whole or in part, and may also result in the loss of promotional consideration. Expiration of the term or termination of Service will not excuse User from paying all accrued and unpaid charges due under this Agreement. If User cancels the Service before the end of the term, your cancellation will take effect immediately. Upon cancellation, User will no longer have access to UnitConnect and all information contained within User’s account will automatically, permanently and irreversibly delete. UnitConnect accepts no liability for such deleted information or content. If the User’s credit card is invalid, the User will be notified to provide a valid credit card within 72 hours. If the subsequent credit card provided is invalid, the User will have 72 hours to provide a new card. If the third credit card provided is invalid, the Service may be cancelled and all the information contained within deleted permanently. UnitConnect accepts no liability for information that is deleted due to an invalid credit card.
14. Representations & Warranties Each party represents and warrants that it has the legal power and authority to enter into this Agreement. UnitConnect represents and warrants that it will provide the Service in a manner consistent with general industry standards reasonably applicable to the provision thereof and that the Service will perform substantially in accordance with the online UnitConnect help documentation under normal use and circumstances. User represents and warrants that User has not falsely identified itself nor provided any false information to gain access to the Service and that User’s billing information is correct.
16. Disclaimer of Warranties User will have access to a variety of sources of content through the Internet.

18. Limitation of Liability IN NO EVENT SHALL UnitConnect’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNTS ACTUALLY PAID BY USER IN THE ONE (1) MONTH PERIOD, OR IN THE CASE OF AN ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION, ONE TWELFTH (1/12) OF THE ANNUAL PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM. IN NO EVENT SHALL UnitConnect AND/OR ITS LICENSORS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES OR AGENTS OR ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER WHO FURNISHES SERVICES TO USER IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES BE LIABLE TO ANYONE UNDER ANY THEORY OF CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOST BUSINESS REVENUE, OTHER ECONOMIC LOSS OR ANY LOSS OF RECORDED DATA, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE LOSS OF USER’S DATA, QUICKBOOKS COMPANY FILE(S) OR ANY OTHER DATA, ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THIS SERVICE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE OR CONTENT OBTAINED FROM OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, ANY INTERRUPTION, INACCURACY, ERROR OR OMISSION, LOSS OR DELETION, UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, OR ALTERATION, THEFT OR DESTRUCTION OF USER’S DATA THROUGH ACCIDENT, FRAUDULENT MEANS OR ANY OTHER METHOD REGARDLESS OF CAUSE IN THE CONTENT OR NEGLIGENCE ON THE PART OF UnitConnect OR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS, EVEN IF THE PARTY FROM WHICH DAMAGES ARE BEING SOUGHT OR SUCH PARTY’S LICENSORS HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
20. Additional Rights Certain states and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental, consequential or certain other types of damages, so the exclusions set forth above may not apply to you.
