Collecting your Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information about you at our website unless you choose to provide it to us voluntarily. We define “personal information” as information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you. Such information might include your phone number, name or email address. Generally, this information is requested when you are asked to register before entering a contest, subscribing to e-mail newsletters, completing an online survey, joining a limited-access premium site, viewing premium-level resource information, or when requesting information about or purchasing CiviCore products and services. If you encounter a screen or page that requests information you do not want to share with us, do not enter the information and do not proceed with that screen or page.

We occasionally contract with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

A cookie is a piece of information that a web server may place on your computer when you visit a website.

Intellectual Property Rights
As between Users and CiviCore, the Website(s), including images, designs, text, arrangements of the foregoing, etc., and underlying software and code belong exclusively to CiviCore.

Compliance with Applicable Laws
The Services are controlled and operated from within the United States. CiviCore makes no representation that the Services are appropriate or available in locations outside of the United States. You acknowledge that You may not be able to access all or some of the Services outside of the United States and that access thereto may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Services from outside the United States, You do so at your own risk and You are responsible for compliance with applicable laws.
Waiver of Warranties
To the extent allowable by the state law in the state where You reside, You hereby release CiviCore, its affiliates and successors, and each of the foregoing’s respective directors, officers, employees, and agents (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability, costs, expenses, losses, damages (including damage to property or personal injury or death), and claims, whether known or unknown, which may arise from (i) You hosting, participating in, attending, or authorizing an event posted on the Website(s) (including events You authorize Your supporters to advertise on the Website(s)); or (ii) from the acts or omissions of third parties You interact with through the Website(s) (collectively the “Released Claims”). For Users in a jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding waiver and release, You agree that You have made such statement. Users who are California residents must, as a condition of this Agreement, waive the applicability of California Civil Code Section 1542 for unknown claims and any similar provisions in law, regulation, or code that has the same effect or intent as the foregoing release.
Limitation of Liability
Neither CiviCore nor its officers, directors, employees, and agents will be liable to You for special, consequential, indirect, punitive, exemplary, or incidental damages (including lost revenues or profits, or loss of goodwill), regardless of the cause, legal theory, or cause of action, even if CiviCore has been advised of the likelihood thereof. CiviCore’s aggregate liability, together with the liability of its officers, directors, employees, and agents arising out of this Agreement and Your use of the Website(s) (when aggregated with all other claims against us arising out of this Agreement and Your use of the Website(s)), regardless of the type of claim(s) or the nature of the cause(s) of action, will not exceed the greater of (i) one hundred U.S. Dollars ($100) or (ii) the net amount CiviCore has been paid from transaction fees arising from transactions You have made through the Website(s) in the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the event giving rise to Your claim(s). You acknowledge that the foregoing limitations are an essential basis of the bargain we have reached, and that they will apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose of any limited remedy.
For Users who live in jurisdictions that do not allow CiviCore to limit its liability: Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, for Users in a jurisdiction that has provisions specific to waiver or liability that conflict with the foregoing, then CiviCore’s liability is limited to the smallest extent possible by law. Specifically, in those jurisdictions not allowed, CiviCore does not disclaim liability for (a) death or personal injury caused by its negligence or that of any of its officers, employees, or agents; or (b) fraudulent misrepresentation or intentional misconduct; or (c) any liability that it is not lawful to exclude either now or in the future.
You agree to hold the Releasees harmless and to defend and indemnify each of them for all costs, expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees), damages, and liability from third party claims, which arise from, or relate to, Your use of the Website(s) or Your breach of this Agreement.
This Agreement, the Services, and use of the Services will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Colorado, as such laws are applied to agreements made between Colorado residents and performed entirely within the State of Colorado and without regard to conflicts of laws principles.
The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any disputes that may arise out of, or relate to, this Agreement or Your use of the Services will be the state and federal courts located in Denver County, Colorado. You hereby expressly and irrevocably consent to the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts.
No Joint Venture
This Agreement does not create, and shall not be construed to create, a joint venture, partnership, or other formal business relationship between You and CiviCore. At all times we shall remain independent contractors with respect to one another.
You have neither the right nor the power to assign Your rights under this Agreement. Any purported assignment of Your rights under this Agreement will be NULL AND VOID.
This Agreement contains the entire agreement between You and CiviCore. The Agreement supersedes and displaces any earlier or contemporaneous written or oral negotiations, statements, or agreements purporting to deal with the subject matter hereof.
If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable, invalid, or illegal by a court of competent jurisdiction, this finding shall not render any other provision of this Agreement unenforceable, invalid, or illegal. We both agree that the court will have the authority to modify or replace the unenforceable, invalid, or illegal provision with a valid and enforceable provision that most closely represents our intentions with respect to the invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision.
Any delay on the part of either party to exercise a right or power granted under this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver of such right or power. All waivers must be in writing, and a waiver of any particular breach will not be construed as a waiver of any other breach or any succeeding breach.
The provisions of the sections of this Agreement titled “Intellectual Property,” “Liability,” and “General” will survive termination.
The headers contained within this Agreement are for convenience of reference only. They should not be interpreted to modify the plain meaning of the various provisions of this Agreement.
If a dispute arises out of this Agreement or Your use of the Website(s) then the prevailing party in any litigation will be entitled to recover all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred as a result of that litigation.
Links to Other Materials
The Website(s) may contain links to sites owned or operated by independent third parties. These links are provided for Your convenience and reference only. CiviCore does not control such sites and, therefore, is not responsible for any content posted on these sites. The fact that CiviCore offers such links should not be construed in any way as an endorsement, authorization, or sponsorship of that site, its content, or the companies or products referenced therein, and CiviCore reserves the right to note its lack of affiliation, sponsorship, or endorsement on the Website(s). If You decide to access any of the third-party sites linked to by the Website(s), You do this entirely at Your own risk. Because some sites employ automated search results or otherwise link You to sites containing information that may be deemed inappropriate or offensive, CiviCore cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of material contained in third party sites, and You hereby irrevocably waive any claim against CiviCore with respect to such sites.
