Acceptance of Terms
This is a legal agreement ("Agreement") between you, the user, together with any company or other business entity you are representing, if any (collectively, the "Member") and BGRA . This Agreement governs the access and use of all services for which Member registers and which are provided by or through BGRA’s Web Site and BGRA's online resources, including without limitation the BGRA Web site building and hosting services (collectively, the "Service"). IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT PURCHASE, USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE.
The Service is offered to Member conditioned upon Member's acceptance without modification of this Agreement. Member acknowledges that, from time to time, it may be necessary for BGRA to update or revise certain provisions of the Agreement. By joining BGRA and accepting this Agreement, Member agrees that BGRA may change the terms of the Agreement in its sole discretion without specific notice to Member. If Member does not agree to the changes proposed by BGRA, or to any terms in this Agreement, Member's sole and exclusive remedy is to cancel Member's BGRA account ("Member's Account"). Notwithstanding the foregoing, BGRA reserves the right to cancel, suspend or refuse access to the Service to anyone in its sole discretion. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features or products that change, augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to this Agreement.
General Use of the Service
Member shall not use the Service, in whole or in part, for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement. Member agrees that Member will not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, frame in another web page, use on any other Web site, transfer, or sell any information, software, lists of users, databases or other lists, products or services provided through or obtained from the Service other than for use in creating a Web site ("Member Web Site") in accordance with this Agreement. This means, among other activities, that Member agrees not to engage in the practices of "screen scraping", "database scraping", or any other activity with the purpose of obtaining lists of users or other information. Member agrees that Member will not use the Service in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Service or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Service.

Charges and Billing
Member hereby authorizes BGRA to charge Member's designated payment method in advance for all applicable fees incurred by Member in connection with Member's chosen Service and Member's Account. Member hereby acknowledges that in most cases, BGRA will be charging Member's designated payment method in accordance with the payment schedule of the Service for which Member has registered, but some charges may accumulate on Member's account before they are charged to Member's payment method. Member further acknowledges that it is Member's responsibility to provide accurate billing and payment information and keep this information up-to-date. You authorize BGRA to charge your payment method for these charges, to obtain updated account information directly from your credit card company and/or financial institution for facilitating any such authorized charges, as may be applicable, and to retain information about the payment method associated with your Account. If BGRA does not receive payment from your designated payment method, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by BGRA. All fees shall be paid in U.S. dollars.
Every time you use the Service, you reaffirm that (i) BGRA is authorized to charge your designated payment method; (ii) BGRA may submit charges incurred under your Account for payment; and (iii) you will be responsible for such charges, even if your membership is canceled or terminated.
BGRA reserves the right to change any fees (which includes but is not limited to, charging a fee for packages, options, upgrades and/or a Service for which BGRA does not currently charge a fee) or billing methods at any time, provided, however, that such modifications shall not take effect earlier than thirty (30) days after BGRA posts such modification on the BGRA Web Site. BGRA also has the right to collect applicable taxes and impose premium surcharges for some areas of the Service and these surcharges may apply immediately after Member registers for the Service. As set forth in Section 18 of this Agreement, Member may cancel any Service Upgrades or Member's Account at any time, but BGRA will not refund any remaining portion of Member's pre-paid fees when Member cancels such upgrades or Member's Account and Member may be charged a cancellation fee.
Member agrees to pay Member's Account balance on time. Member also agrees to pay any taxes, including sales or use taxes, resulting from Member's use of the Service. Amounts not paid by Member to BGRA when due will be assessed an additional 1.5% (or the highest amount allowed by law, whichever is lower) per month if Member's payment is more than thirty (30) days past due. That amount is also due immediately. Nonpayment of services will cause your Account to be deemed delinquent and BGRA may terminate or suspend your Account for nonpayment. Member is responsible and liable for any fees, including attorney and collection fees, that BGRA may incur in its efforts to collect any remaining balances due from Member. This Section 3 shall in no way limit any other remedies available to BGRA. Member also acknowledges and agrees that Member will be billed for and will pay any outstanding balances if Member cancels Member's Account or Member's Account is terminated. Member must notify BGRA of any billing problems or discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on Member's credit card account statement.

Member shall be responsible for all actions by such users, including without limitation former employees and former partners, and shall indemnify BGRA for such actions as set forth in Section 13.
