Terms of Use

Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use
This subscriber agreement and terms of use (collectively the “Agreement”) are applicable to all Incentive Plan Builder.com (“IPB”) incentive plans and services and, unless other terms and conditions expressly govern, any other electronic services from IPB that may be made available from time to time (collectively the "Service").
1. Acceptance
You (User) agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, you should check the "I HAVE READ AND AGREE TO THE TERMS OF SERVICE" box during registration with the Service. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, do not check the "I HAVE READ AND AGREE TO THE TERMS OF SERVICE" box. If you do not check this box, you will not be able to proceed with the registration process for the respective Service and become a subscriber. To the extent you have access to, or are using, a Service without having completed our registration process and clicked on an "I AGREE" button, you are hereby notified that your continued use of the Service is subject to many of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as explained in Section 5 below.
2. Changes to Terms of Use and Services
IBP may change the prices, fees, Services and/or the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time by notifying you of the change in writing or electronically. IPB may also rearrange, delete, add to or otherwise change programming or features or offerings contained in the Services, including but not limited to, content, functionality, hours of availability, customer equipment requirements, storage capacity, and speed of upstream and downstream data transmission. If you find the change unacceptable, you have the right to cancel your Service, pursuant to Section 3. However, if you continue to use the Service after any change has been made, IPB will consider that you have accepted such change. Changes to this Agreement will also appear in this document, which you can access at any time by clicking on the Terms of Use link.  You signify that you agree to be bound by such changes by using a Service after changes are made to this Agreement. You may not modify this Agreement by making any typed, handwritten, or any other changes to it for any purpose.
3. Subscription Fees, Payments, Renewals, Refunds, and Upgrades
User may purchase a subscription to either a single incentive plan, or a group of ten (10) plans. All incentive plan subscription fees must be paid in full prior to becoming available to the User. A paid subscription provides the User access to the Services for a period of twelve (12) months following the date of purchase (the “Subscription Term”). User’s subscription will not automatically renew at the end of a Subscription Term. Cancellation of Service prior to the end of a Subscription Term will result in no refund to the User. There are no refunds for unused incentive plans. If you elect to upgrade incentive plans or Service to a higher service level, you must pay the difference between the price for lower plan or Service and the higher plan or Service, and your subscription will be extended for a period of one year following the date of the upgrade.
4. Revocable License
You have no ownership rights in any Service. Rather, you have a limited, revocable license to use the Service in object code form (without making any modification thereto) as long as the Subscription Term remains in effect. You acknowledge and understand that you are not granted any other license to use the software embedded in the Service or used to provide the Service.
As a condition of the revocable limited license for the Service you may not: (i) publish, publicly display, disclose, rent, lease, modify, loan, distribute, or create derivative works based on the Service or any part thereof; (ii) reverse engineer, decompile, translate, adapt, disassemble the Service; (iii) attempt to create the source code from the object code for the Service; (iv) transmit the Service over any network or between any devices; (v) make any portion of the Service into a stand-alone product; (vi) take any action that will infringe on the intellectual property or other proprietary rights of IPB or any third party software provider; or (vii) sublicense, rent, lease, or assign the Service.
Pursuant to Section 17, by uploading a logo into the Service, you grant IPB the right to use and display the logo in connection with providing the Service to you and your authorized users.
5. Limitations on Use of Service
a) Each incentive plan may be used only once, after which time such plan may only be accessed by User for editing, payout calculation, and report generation. Such plan cannot be reused or used to create additional incentive plans.
b) Unused incentive plans remain active and available to User as long as the User maintains an active IPB subscription, as detailed in Section 3 of this Agreement.  IPB agrees to store used and unused incentive plans on an expired subscription for a period of thirty (30) days, after which IBP may delete these plans at its discretion. Users will not be able to recover incentive plans once they are deleted by IBP.

18. Binding Arbitration
If you have a dispute with IPB that cannot be resolved through an informal dispute resolution process, you or IPB must arbitrate that dispute in accordance with the terms of this arbitration provision, rather than litigate the dispute in court. Arbitration means you will have a fair hearing before a neutral arbitrator instead of in a court by a judge or jury. You must contact IPB in writing within one (1) year of the date of the occurrence of the event or facts giving rise to a dispute or you waive the right to pursue any claim based upon such event, facts or dispute. You are responsible for all costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys or expert witnesses.
