Website Terms of Use

Acceptance of Terms of Use

St. Vincent de Paul Society Diocesan Council of Southeast Alaska, its subsidiaries and affiliates (“SVdP”, “we”, “us” or “our”) requires that all visitors (“you”) to our site(s) on the World Wide Web (“Site”) abide by the following Terms of Use (“TOU”). By accessing and using the Site you indicate your agreement to these TOU. If you do not agree to these TOU, please do not access or use the Site.

Description of Services

The Site provides you with access to a variety of resources, including product and services information (“Services”). The Services are subject to these TOU.

Registration, Password, and Security

If any of the Services requires you to login, you must complete the registration process by providing us with current, complete and accurate information as prompted by the registration form. You also may choose a password and a user ID. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and user ID. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your user ID. You must notify us immediately of any unauthorized access or use of your user ID or any other breach of security. We will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or user ID, either with or without your knowledge.

Indemnification

You shall indemnify, defend (at SVdP’s option) and hold harmless SVdP and its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and all liabilities, expenses (including legal fees), damages, penalties, fines, social security contributions and taxes arising out of or related to  your breach of your representations, warranties or obligations under this Agreement, or a claim by a third party directly or indirectly related to your provision of SVdP Services or use of the SVdP Services. This indemnification provision shall not apply to your breach of any representations regarding your status as an independent contractor.

Limitation of Liability

SVDP WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF DRIVER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES ANY INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY TYPE OR KIND, OR YOUR OR ANY THIRD PARTY’S PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR LOSS OR INACCURACY OF DATA, OR LOSS OF BUSINESS, REVENUE, PROFITS, USE OR OTHER ECONOMIC ADVANTAGE. EXCEPT FOR COMPANY’S OBLIGATIONS TO PAY AMOUNTS DUE TO YOU. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE LIABILITY OF SVDP EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF SERVICE FEES ACTUALLY PAID TO OR DUE TO SVDP IN THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH CLAIM.

Termination

Either party may terminate without cause at any time. SVdP may deactivate your ID immediately, without notice, with respect to you in the event you no longer qualify under applicable law or the standards and policies of SVdP to provide SVdP Services. Your outstanding obligations under these TOU survive termination.

Arbitration

You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these TOU or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the SVdP Services (“Disputes“) will be settled by binding arbitration between you and SVdP, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and SVdP are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and SVdP otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this section will survive any termination of these TOU.  The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules“) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section.

Governing Law

These TOU shall be governed by the laws of the State of Alaska, USA, excluding its conflicts of laws principles. You expressly agree that the exclusive jurisdiction for any claim or action arising out of or relating to these TOU or your use of the SVdP Services shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in the State of Alaska, and you further agree and submit to the exercise of personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating any such claim or action.

Forward Looking Statements

When used on this website, the words or phrases “will likely result”, “are expected to”, “plan”, “believe”, “will continue”, “is anticipated”, “estimate”, “projected”, “intends to” or similar expressions are intended to identify “forward-looking statements.”  Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties affecting the SVdP ability to implement its growth strategy, contingent risks, state and federal regulation and licensing requirements, and other concerns that could cause the Foundation’s actual results to differ materially from historical earnings and those presently anticipated or projected.  Such factors, which are discussed herein, could affect the Foundation’s financial performance and could cause the Foundation’s actual results for future periods to differ materially from any opinions or statements expressed with respect to future periods on fundraising plans.  As a result, donors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made.  Independent accountants have not examined or compiled the accompanying forward-looking statements and accordingly do not provide any assurance with respect to such statements.
