You agree that SkillRecord shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site or any portion thereof.
To use the services available on the Site, you must complete the membership registration form. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Site’s registration form (“User Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the User Data to keep it accurate and current. You agree that SkillRecord may use your User Data to provide services on the Site for which you have expressed interest. If you provide any information that is inaccurate or not current, or SkillRecord has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is inaccurate or not current, SkillRecord has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Site. In consideration of your use of the Site, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of any applicable jurisdiction.
If you choose to become a member of SkillRecord, you must designate and provide information about your preferred payment method (e.g., credit card, online payment service or any other payment method made available by SkillRecord) (“Payment Method”). You may switch to a different Payment Method or update your information by visiting the “Account” page or by contacting us by email at email@example.com. You will immediately be charged for your membership fees after you click “Submit” on the confirmation page and your account will be activated. You agree to pay all membership fees and other charges incurred in connection with your username and password for your SkillRecord account.
Fees and Renewals
You may elect to pay membership fees on a monthly or annual basis. All membership fees are payable in advance. Membership fees will be billed automatically to the Payment Method at the start of the monthly or annual period, as applicable, and will auto-renew until your membership is terminated. The renewal membership fees will be the same as the initial charges unless you are otherwise notified in advance. You authorize SkillRecord to charge your Payment Method for the appropriate membership charges and fees and for any other purchases you elect to make via the Site. SkillRecord reserves the right to increase membership fees or to institute new fees at any time upon reasonable notice posted in advance on this Site. Members changing from monthly to annual memberships will have the annual rates take effect at the beginning of the next billing date. If you upgrade your membership or add new categories of service to your account, such changes may result in a new billing date effective upon the date you elect such upgrade or addition. All purchases are final and no refund will be given for unused portions of your initial or any renewal membership period.
You may cancel your membership by visiting your “Account” page and selecting “Downgrade” or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The cancellation of a membership will go into effect at the end of your current billing cycle, and you will have the same level of access to the Site through the remainder of such billing cycle. When your membership ends, your account will enter “SkillRecord Free” mode. No refunds or credits will be provided by SkillRecord upon cancellation. You can renew your subscription at anytime without opening a new account, provided that additional fees may apply if you decide to reactivate a membership at a later date.
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password associated with your account and for restricting access to your password and to your computer while logged into the Site. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or from your computer. We endeavour to use reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to your account. We cannot, however, guarantee absolute security of your account, your Content or the personal information you provide, and we cannot promise that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally accessing the Site or its contents. You agree to immediately notify SkillRecord of any unauthorized use or your account or password, or any other breach of security, and to accept all risks of unauthorized access to the User Data and any other information you provide to SkillRecord.

You acknowledge that SkillRecord may or may not pre-screen or monitor Content, but that SkillRecord and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, monitor, refuse or remove any Content that is available via the Site.

The Site may provide you with the option of making certain Content that you submit to the Site as private or available only to select users of the Site. If, upon submission of Content to the Site, you initially elect to mark such Content as private or available for a limited group of users, SkillRecord will maintain the privacy of such Content in accordance with your election. However, if you do not elect to mark your Content as private or available for a limited group of users, or later change such designation to allow such Content to be made generally available, SkillRecord can not and does not guarantee the privacy of such Content.

Third party product and service offerings made available for purchase by you on the Site are made and offered directly by the applicable third party service provider or advertiser. When you purchase any such product or service offering through the Site, you acknowledge that you are contracting directly with the applicable third party service provider or advertiser and not with SkillRecord. Your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of, third party service providers or advertisers found on or through the Site, including payment and delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party service provider or advertiser. Although we are interested in receiving feedback regarding our third party service providers and advertisers and their products and services, and may from time to time assist you in your dealings with such third party service providers and advertisers, SkillRecord is not responsible for the performance or nonperformance of any third party service provider or advertiser. You are in no way obligated to use or transact business with any particular third party service provider or advertiser that appears on the Site.

You are granted a limited, non-exclusive right to create a text hyperlink to the Site, provided such link does not portray SkillRecord or any of its products or services in a false, misleading, derogatory or otherwise defamatory manner, and provided further that the linking site does not contain any pornographic, illegal, offensive, harassing or otherwise objectionable material. You are further granted a right to implement any RSS feeds located on the Site for your personal, non-commercial use, solely as described on the Site. We reserve the right to revoke these licenses generally, or your right to use specific links or RSS feeds, at any time, with or without cause.
Interactions with Site Users
The Site functions as a venue to connect members in a virtual information place. As a neutral facilitator, SkillRecord is not directly involved in the actual transactions between members of the Site. As a result, SkillRecord has no control over the truth, accuracy, quality, legality, or safety of postings made by users of the Site. SkillRecord shall have no responsibility to confirm the identity of members. SkillRecord shall also have no responsibility to confirm or verify the qualifications, background, or abilities of users of the Site. You shall at all time exercise common sense and good judgment when dealing with any user of the Site.
If you elect to use our “reviewer” feature or similar Site features for informing a friend about our Site or for emailing other information to a friend, SkillRecord will require you to provide your friend’s contact information and/or email address. SkillRecord will automatically send that friend a one-time email. SkillRecord may store the information you provide for a period of time, provided that SkillRecord will use such information only to identify if your friend is or later becomes a member of SkillRecord. You represent that you are authorized to provide any third party email address or other information that you provide to SkillRecord.
The Site may provide you with the ability to send e-mails, post messages to user forums, enter chat rooms, speak via Internet voice connections or send similar messages and communications to third party service providers, advertisers, other users and/or SkillRecord. You agree to use communication methods available on the Site only to send communications and materials related to the subject matter for which SkillRecord provided the communication method, and you further agree that all such communications by you shall be deemed your Content and shall be subject to and governed by the Terms.

You agree that all notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically shall satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
You acknowledge and agree that the Site, any necessary software used in connection with the Site (if any) and any Content available on the Site contain proprietary and confidential information that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws.

You hereby consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the provincial and federal courts located in Victoria, British Columbia for any legal proceedings related to the Site or the Terms. If any party hereto brings any suit or action against another for relief, declaratory or otherwise, arising out of these Terms, the prevailing party will have and recover against the other party, in addition to all court costs and disbursements, such sum as the court may adjudge to be reasonable attorneys’ fees. Except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, the parties agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Site or the Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.

The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and SkillRecord with respect to your use of the Site. The failure of SkillRecord to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
