Registration, Security and Submitted Information.
When you register to use the Services, you may be required to provide certain information about yourself. You represent and warrant that such information will be accurate and complete and you agree to update that information as necessary to maintain its accuracy and completeness. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account, your user name, and your password. Additionally, you are responsible and liable for any and all activities, including purchase transactions, that occur through the use of your user name and password.

Product and Services Fulfillment and Disputes.
The offering, sale and fulfillment of all products and services made through the Services are made directly by the brand manufacturer, retailer, owner and/or provider of those products and services (“Merchant(s)”). When you place an order for a product or a service through the Services, your order is referred to the Merchant of that product or service for fulfillment. It is the Merchant’s responsibility to accept and process your payment for the product or service you have elected to purchase. Brandcards will not accept payment for or fulfill your order. Our Services simply facilitate the exchange of the Merchant’s product and service information with you and a connection between you and the Merchant in the event you elect to make a purchase. You acknowledge and agree that Brandcards has no obligation to accept payment from you or to fulfill your orders made through the Services. You further agree to look solely to the applicable Merchant(s) for the fulfillment of your orders, including without limitation the shipment of your orders. We do not warrant that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you through the Services will meet your expectations and we disclaim any and all express and implied warranties that may apply, including without limitation any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for intended use. Any advertisement or offer for any product or service made on or through the Services is void where prohibited by law or otherwise.
In the event of a dispute between you and any Merchant, you understand and agree that Brandcards is under no obligation to become involved and you hereby release Brandcards, its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

Assignment and Termination.
We may at any time transfer our rights and obligations under this Agreement to any affiliate, subsidiary or business unit, or any of their affiliates, or to any entity that acquires any of our assets or with which we merge or combine. You may not assign or delegate this Agreement or your rights or obligations hereunder without our prior, written consent. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, immediately and without notice, to suspend or terminate this Agreement, your registration for any feature, program or service offered on the Website or through the Services, and your ability to access the Website or through the Services, for any reason, including without limitation any breach by you of this Agreement or conduct by you that we determine to be inappropriate. You agree that Brandcards and its affiliates shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any suspension or termination pursuant to this provision.
By visiting our Website, you agree that (a) the laws of the State of Colorado, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern any and all disputes that arise between you and Brandcards (collectively, the “Parties”) regarding your access to or use of the Services, and (b) except as as described in the arbitration provision in the following paragraph or as otherwise agreed by you and Brandcards, any legal action relating to such disputes must be brought, as applicable, in the state and/or federal courts located in Denver County, Colorado that have subject matter jurisdiction over the dispute. You also consent and agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of these courts and hereby waive any and all objections to such jurisdiction, including without limitation objections based on an inconvenient forum.
Any claim or dispute by or among the parties to this Agreement (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) shall be resolved exclusively by binding non-appearance-based arbitration pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The arbitration shall take place in Denver County, Colorado and the internal laws of the State of Colorado (other than conflicts of laws rules) and the United States of America shall apply. Part or all of the arbitration may be conducted by telephone and/or based on written submissions and shall not require the personal appearance of the Parties or any witnesses, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. The allocation of costs and fees for such arbitration shall be determined in accordance with the AAA Rules. If such costs are finally determined by the arbitrator to be excessive in a consumer dispute, Brandcards will be responsible for paying all arbitration fees and arbitrator compensation in excess of what is deemed reasonable. Each party shall be responsible for its own attorneys fees. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator engaged in the practice of law who is mutually agreed upon by the parties or failing such agreement within 14 days from the delivery of the original arbitration demand, each party shall select one arbitrator and the two selected arbitrators shall mutually agree upon the selection of a third arbitrator within 30 days from the delivery of the original arbitration demand. The arbitrator’s decision and award shall be final and binding and may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. Nothing in this Agreement will prevent a party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief with respect to the infringement, misappropriation or other violation of such party’s intellectual property or other proprietary rights in any court of competent jurisdiction. In the event the foregoing agreement to arbitrate is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable with respect to any claim, dispute or controversy, then any such claim, dispute or controversy shall be filed and adjudicated only in the state and/or federal courts located in Denver County, Colorado in accordance with the preceding paragraph.
