Updated: December 31, 2019
We are an ad agency serving the automotive industry by providing marketing services for our business clients, primarily regional automotive dealer associations (Associations) to help Associations and their member dealers (Dealers) sell and service more cars.
Our Services include websites and mobile applications which we private label on behalf of our Clients (Client Sites), including portals accessed by our Clients’ customers (Consumer Portals). Our Client Sites provide our Clients, specifically dealerships, with the ability to view marketing reports, customize how they spend their marketing budgets, manage their sales and service leads and opportunities, and track customer interactions, among other functions. Consumer Portals we maintain for a dealership’s customers provide the customer with certain information about the dealership, its vehicles, and services. These Consumer Portals may also include applications that enable customers to communicate with the dealership (by phone, chat, email or text), build and price vehicles, obtain special offers, schedule maintenance, obtain information on financing, or access other information pertaining to vehicles they own, lease or are interested in purchasing or leasing, among other features.

The Sites or Services may include links to third party sites. Any such third party sites, and any information provided therein, is made available to you by our Sites “AS IS”, and solely for your information. Some third party services may be provided through third party sites that require you to register on those sites. Any such registration is separate from registration on our Sites, and will be governed by the terms of the third party site. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for evaluating the risks associated with using any third party sites, content, or services and that we have no liability for any services provided on or through such third party sites and make no representations or warranties concerning the accuracy, integrity or quality of any third party sites or content. With respect to third party content or links posted on our Sites, we may receive payment or other consideration, which such content may, but is not required to be, identified as “sponsored content.”
We are not a vehicle dealership or manufacturer nor a seller or broker for any dealership. Nor are we a financial institution or seller or broker of any auto financing or insurance services. Information about specific dealerships and their vehicles and services are provided by those dealerships and, in the case of ancillary services, by the entities providing them. While we strive to keep our Sites current, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of information provided through the Sites or Services, including, without limitation, the availability or price of any vehicles or auto services or the terms or your eligibility for any promotions or offers, including any financing or leasing terms or offers, and are not responsible for any errors or omissions with respect to the information made available on the Sites or through the Services.
The Sites and Services, and all content contained therein are provided “AS IS”, without warranties of any kind, express or implied, including, without limitation, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non‐infringement. We do not warrant that the Sites or Services will be uninterrupted or error free, that any specific information requested will be provided or that the Sites or Services will be free of computer viruses or other harmful elements. You expressly agree that the entire risk as to the quality and performance of our Sites, and the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of the content and Services, is assumed solely by you. Some states do not allow limitations on implied warranties, so the above limitations, in full or in part, may not apply to you.
Your use of or access to the Sites or Services may be denied at any time, without or without notice, and for any or no reason. Any of the Services may be modified or discontinued at any time, without or without notice, and for any or no reason. You agree that we will not be liable to you or any third party for any denial of access to, or modification or discontinuation of, any Services.
All of the trademarks, trade names, service marks, logos, graphics, designs, brands, and service names (Marks) appearing on our Sites are either our registered trademarks, trademarks or trade dress, or are licensed to us for our use. None of the Marks may be used, including as part of trademarks and/or as part of domain names, in connection with any product or service in any manner that is likely to cause confusion, and may not be copied, imitated, or used, in whole or in part, without our prior written permission. Nothing on the Sites should be construed as granting, by implication or otherwise, any license or right to use any of the Marks.

Our Sites are controlled and operated from within the United States. We make no representation that the Sites or Services, including the information we collect, complies with the laws of any foreign jurisdictions.

COMPLIANCE WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials, as well as private parties, to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties that, in our sole discretion, we believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process including, but not limited to, subpoenas, to protect our property and rights or that of a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or subject to legal action.
OUR POLICY TOWARDS CHILDREN
Our Sites and Services are not targeted to or intended for use by children. Any use of or access to the Sites or Services by anyone under 13 is not permitted and violates these Terms. By using or accessing our Sites or Services, you represent and warrant that you are 13 years of age or older and fully able to agree to and abide by all of our Terms. We may suspend or terminate your user account and delete any profiles, content, or data you may have created or posted if we believe, in our sole discretion, that you are less than 13 years old.
You agree to indemnify and hold us, our affiliates, our partners and our clients, and each of our and their owners, directors, officers, employees and agents (the Indemnified Parties) harmless from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, demands, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, arising out of or in connection with your use of the Sites or Services, or any violation of these Terms or of any law or the rights of any user or other third party.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In no event will any of the Indemnified Parties be liable to you or any third party for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages, including for any lost profits or lost data arising from your use of the Sites or Services, or any of the content accessed through or downloaded from the Sites, even if they are aware or have been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no case shall the Indemnified Parties’ cumulative liability to you for any cause whatsoever, and regardless of the form of the action, exceed US$10.00. Because certain state laws do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain damages, these limitations, in full or in part, may not apply to you.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION/GOVERNING LAW
With respect to any dispute, you agree to first contact us as indicated under the “How to Contact Us” section below and work with us in good faith to attempt to resolve the dispute. In the event we are not able to resolve the dispute, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof, through binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA. The arbitration shall take place in Fairfax County, Virginia. By visiting or using the Sites or Services, you agree that the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without regard to its choice of law principles, will govern these Terms and any dispute of any sort that might arise between us. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. For any such actions, we each agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts for Fairfax County, Virginia and waive any and all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts for matters related to data security, IP, or unauthorized access to the Sites or Services. We each agree to waive any and all rights we may have to trial by jury.
In connection with a corporate merger, acquisition, divestiture, asset sale, joint venture, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or any other similar transaction or proceeding, we may sell, divest, transfer, assign, share or otherwise engage in a transaction that involves some or all of our assets, including your user account information and content.
In the event any portion of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then such portion shall be construed in accordance with the applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect our original intentions; the remainder of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect. All provisions of these Terms that, by their terms, are reasonably expected to survive their termination shall survive such termination. These Terms contain the entire agreement concerning your use of the Sites and the Services and supersede all existing agreements and all other oral, written or other communication between us concerning its subject matter. No waiver of these Terms shall be effective unless in writing. Except as otherwise expressly stated in these Terms, there shall be no third‐party beneficiaries.
