TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE

Last revised on 12/01/11

Welcome to our website. This site is maintained as a service to our customers. By using this site, you agree to comply with and be bound by the following terms and conditions of use. Please review these terms and conditions carefully. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, you should not use this site.

1. Agreement

This Agreement (the "Agreement") specifies the terms and conditions for access to and use of this website, www.StateAndFederalBids.com (the "Site"). This Agreement may be modified at any time by Online Data Services, LLC (d/b/a StateAndFederalBids.com, "SAFBC") upon posting of the modified agreement. (All references in this Agreement to "we", "us", or "our" refer to SAFBC and all references to "you" or "your" refer to each person using the Site) You can view the most recent version of this Agreement at any time at http://www.stateandfederalbids.com/bids/government-bids-terms.shtml.

2. Choice of Subscriptions

You may choose from a variety of subscription plans. Your subscription grants to you a license to view use the Site and all bid data on the Site for the sole purpose of evaluating bids that you or your company may wish to investigate further. Your subscription is intended for your use alone and you are not permitted to share it with any other person. Unless otherwise noted, on the Renewal Date your subscription plan automatically renews for a successive period equal to the original term unless you cancel it pursuant to Section 11 below before the Renewal Date. The Renewal Date shall be the same day of the month as the current term began unless the month during which the current term ends does not have that many days in it, in which case the Renewal Date shall be the last day of the month during which the current term is scheduled to end. For example, if you choose a monthly subscription plan and activate the account on January 5th, your first Renewal Date and the date you will be billed for a new term unless you cancel your account pursuant to Section 11 below before that date is February 5th. Since calendar months do not have a uniform number of days, this means that the Renewal Date of your subscription plan may change. For example, if you signup for a monthly subscription plan on January 31st, your Renewal Date will be February 28th because February does not have 31 days and the 28th is the last day of February (unless it is a leap year in which case your Renewal Date would be February 29th). Your next Renewal Date would be 1 month from the previous Renewal Date, so it will occur on March 28th.

3. Credit Card Charges

If you pay by credit card, upon registration you do grant to us permission to charge all fees incurred, including all renewal fees, using your password to the credit card you provide to us. If payment cannot be charged to your credit card or such payment is returned to us for any reason, including chargebacks, SAFBC may either suspend or terminate your account and all services under this Agreement and you will personally owe SAFBC any unpaid balance.

4. Privacy

SAFBC's Privacy Policy also governs your visit to our site. Please review our Privacy Policy at http://www.stateandfederalbids.com/bids/government-bids-privacy.shtml.

10. Cancellation by SAFBC With Cause

If we terminate your subscription plan for cause, we will not refund any monies to you. We reserve the right to deactivate your subscription immediately. SAFBC shall, in its sole discretion determine what shall constitute sufficient cause for canceling your account. Any attempt by you to try to block or stop payment of your charges due or to request a chargeback through your credit card issuer shall constitute sufficient cause for SAFBC to cancel you account.

11. Cancellation by User With or Without Cause

You have the right to cancel your account at anytime by notifying SAFBC of your desire to do so. Upon your notification, SAFBC will confirm your cancellation request in writing to your email address on file and your cancellation will not be effective unless and until SAFBC so confirms it in writing. Until you receive SAFBC's confirmation of your cancellation request, it remains your obligation to continue to notify SAFBC of your request in order to complete your cancellation.

Once your cancellation is effective, you shall not owe SAFBC any further payments and SAFBC shall stop your account from automatically charging your credit card. SAFBC shall deactivate your account at the end of your then current term. You agree that this is the only manner in which you can cancel your account and that your cancellation is not effective until you receive written confirmation from SAFBC that we have processed your cancellation request.
