Single Copy License. You may download one copy of the materials (the “Materials”) and/or Content found on this Site for use with the Services and/or Accounts. This is a license, not a transfer of title, and is subject to the following restrictions: unless you receive prior written consent from us and unless you receive any required regulatory approvals, you may not: (a) modify the Materials, Content, Services or Accounts or use them for any commercial purpose or any public display, performance, sale or rental; (b) decompile, reverse engineer, or disassemble software, Materials, Content, Services or Accounts; (c) remove any copyright or other proprietary notices from the Materials, Content, Services or Accounts; (d) unless otherwise provided herein, transfer or resell the Materials, Content, Services or your Account to another person.

Term. The term of this Agreement begins on the date we activate Services for your Account. This Agreement will continue from month to month until terminated by either party pursuant to the terms hereof.
Order Acceptance Policy. Your submission of your order on the Site or receipt of an email confirmation signifies acceptance by LandCert of your order and the provision of your Account. LandCert may verify orders to prevent fraud. Should LandCert suspect the placement of a fraudulent order (even after you have received an email confirmation of acceptance of your order and the provision of your Account), LandCert may contact you by email or telephone regarding such suspected fraudulent order and, in sole discretion, interrupt, restrict or terminate your Account without notice to you by LandCert.
Use of Services and Account. You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age or the applicable state age of majority and that you possess the legal right and ability to enter into this Agreement. You agree not to use the Materials, Content, Services and your Account for any unlawful or abusive purpose or in any way which interferes with our ability to provide Services to our customers, or damages our property.

You should change your password once each month. If your Services or Accounts are fraudulently used, you agree to immediately notify us of such unauthorized use. We have the right to interrupt, restrict or terminate Services to your Account, without notice to you, if we suspect fraudulent or abusive activity. You agree to cooperate with us in any fraud investigation and to use any fraud prevention measures we prescribe.
Billing and Payment. Any applicable initiation fees and monthly recurring charges are billed in advance of the month of usage. Billing cycle end dates may change from time to time. When a billing cycle covers less than or more than a full month, we may make reasonable adjustments and pro-rations. Time is of the essence for payment. Therefore, you agree to pay us interest at the lesser of (a) 18% per annum or (b) the highest amount allowed by law for any amounts unpaid as of the due date. Acceptance of late or partial payments (even if marked "Paid in Full") shall not waive any of our rights to collect the full amount due under this Agreement. Notice of any disputes must be in writing and received by us at our address within thirty (30) days after the invoice date or you will waive any objection.
Default/Termination. We reserve the right to (i) modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the API Service (or any part thereof) and (ii) refuse any and all current and future use of the API Service, suspend or terminate your account (any part thereof) or use of the API Service and remove and discard any of Your content in the API Service, for any reason, including, if we believe that You have violated this Agreement. We will use all reasonable efforts to contact You directly via email to warn You prior to suspension or termination of Your account. We shall not be liable to You or any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuation of the API Service. If you fail to pay any amount owed to us within 5 days after the due date, or if you have in the past failed to pay amounts due us or an affiliate of ours, or if you breach any representation to us or fail to perform any of the promises you have made in this Agreement, or if you are subject to any proceeding under the Bankruptcy Act or similar laws, you will be in default and we may, in our sole discretion and with or without prior notice, restrict or terminate Services and/or terminate this Agreement, in addition to all other remedies available to us.
Upon termination of this Agreement and/or your Services, your right to use the Services immediately ceases. You shall have no right and we will have no obligation thereafter to forward any unread or unsent messages to you or any third party. We may require reactivation charges to renew Services after termination or suspension.

Should your credit or debit card decline for any reason, we will attempt to charge it again as follows: 2nd attempt after 1 (one) day, 3rd attempt after 6 (six) additional days, 4th attempt after 7(seven) additional days and 5th and final attempt after 7 (seven ) more days. If the fifth attempt to bill your credit or debit card is unsuccessful on the 21st (twenty-first) day, your account will be terminated and we will notify you of such termination by email, by message sent to your voicemail box, or by telephone.
Accounts will be terminated if we are not able to confirm an order by phone and do not receive any replies from the account holder. A credit or debit card authorization form will be required to reactivate such accounts.
Limitations. We will make every available effort to keep LandCert Services operational 24 hours a day/7 days a week. There will be periods of downtime for essential maintenance and upgrades.

We are at no time liable for any credit card issues that arise as a result of Authorize.net being compromised.
Termination. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by ceasing all use of the Services or by notifying LandCert or doing so through your LandCert account. We may terminate this Agreement, at any time, without notice to you, if it believes, in its sole judgment, that you have breached or may breach any term or condition of this Agreement. You agree that termination of this Agreement will not relieve you of any obligation to pay any accrued charges. You shall be charged the full amount of the fee for the month in which the Services were terminated. All sections which by their nature should survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement shall continue in full force and effect subsequent to and notwithstanding the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
