WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR AMEND THESE TERMS FROM TIME TO TIME WITHOUT NOTICE. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF OUR WEBSITE OR ANY AFFILIATE WEBSITES FOLLOWING THE POSTING OF CHANGES TO THESE TERMS WILL MEAN YOU ACCEPT THOSE CHANGES.

Accuracy of Information. We attempt to ensure that the information on this Website is complete, accurate and current. Despite our efforts, the information on this Website may occasionally be inaccurate, incomplete or out of date. We make no representation as to the completeness, accuracy or currency of any information on this Website.

Copyright, Trademark and Ownership. All of the content displayed on the Website, including without limitation text, graphics, photographs, images, moving images, sound, and illustrations (“Content”), is owned by NFCB, its licensors, agents or its Content providers. All elements of the Website, including, without limitation, the Website’s general design, NFCB’s trademarks, service marks, trade names (including the NFCB’s name, logos, the Website’s name, and the Website’s design), and other Content, are protected by trade dress, copyright, moral rights, trademark and other laws relating to intellectual property rights. The Website may only be used for the intended purpose for which it is being made available. Except as may be otherwise indicated on the Website, you are authorized to view, play, print and download documents, audio and video found on our Website for personal, informational, and non-commercial purposes only. You may not use, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit, distribute, or modify the Content or the NFCB’s trademarks in any way, including in advertising or publicity pertaining to distribution of materials on the Website, without NFCB’s prior written consent. Of course, you’re free to encourage others to access the information themselves on our Website and to tell them how to find it.

The use of NFCB trademarks on any other website is not allowed. NFCB prohibits the use of NFCB trademarks as a “hot” link on or to any other website unless NFCB approves the establishment of such a link in writing in advance. The Website, its Content and all related rights shall remain the exclusive property of NFCB or its licensors unless otherwise expressly agreed. You will not remove any copyright, trademark or other proprietary notices from material found on the Website.

Refund and Return Policy. Once an NFCB membership has been purchased, no refunds will be given. Nothing herein is meant to limit your return or cancellation rights under applicable local law. Certain events, conferences, and other NFCB offerings may have different policies with respect to refunds and returns. To the extent that those policies differ from the refund and return policy detailed here in the Terms, the terms of the refund and return policies of the event, conference, or other NFCB offering will govern.

Charges. For all charges for any products, services, or memberships sold on the Website, NFCB will bill your credit card or alternative payment method offered by NFCB. You agree to provide valid and updated payment information. In the event legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse NFCB for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including attorneys’ fees and other legal expenses. You are responsible for purchase of, and payment of charges for, all Internet access services needed for use of this Website and any and all fees charged to you by your financial institution related to the charges. The membership fees are based on the listed price for the service and not actual usage. Payment obligations are non-cancelable and fees paid are non-refundable. If you cancel your membership in the middle of the period for which the membership was paid, we will not issue a refund for any portion of the amount charged for that period. NFCB may suspend or terminate your account, in addition to other rights and remedies, if fees are past due. You shall provide NFCB with written notice of any disputed charges within ten (10) business days of the date of the charge. Notice of the dispute must provide in reasonable detail a statement of the basis for disputing the charge.

Use of Contact Information. Any and all contact information that is displayed on the Website, including the information contained in any member directories or other directories that may be provided on the Website, is provided for informational purposes only and is not to be used for marketing, telemarketing or solicitation purposes, regardless of whether such marketing, telemarketing or solicitation is commercial, non-commercial, charitable or political in nature. This information may not be copied or redistributed and is provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind.

Account Registration and Security. You understand that you may need to create a membership account to have access to parts of the Websites (“Member Areas”). To access the Member Areas, you will be asked to register with us on the form provided. The registration may require you to submit certain personally identifying information (such as your name and email address) and to provide certain demographic information (such as your gender and date of birth). If you are not an NFCB member, you can request membership by visiting the “Join” section of the website. Your membership application may be reviewed by us before access to the Member Areas is granted.

When submitting a membership request or registering for the Member Area(s) of the Website, you will be asked to create a username that will be associated with your account. We reserve the right to reject or terminate the use of any username that we deem offensive or inappropriate. You also will be assigned a password to access the Member Area(s) of the Site, and will have the opportunity to change that password via the account tools that are provided to you on the Website. You are entirely responsible for the security and confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security of which you become aware. You are responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the Website. Please note that anyone able to provide your username and password will be able to access your account so you should take reasonable steps to protect this information.

Access and Interference. You agree that you will not use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the Website for any purpose without our express written permission.
