Below is an overview of our Terms of Service for our “Platform”, which means any website, application, or service we offer. You should read the complete Terms of Service because that document (and not this overview) is our legally binding agreement. The Terms of Service includes information about your legal rights and covers areas such as automatic subscription renewals, limitations of liability, resolution of disputes by mandatory arbitration rather than a judge or jury in a court of law, and a class action waiver.
If the law in your jurisdiction allows you to enter into agreements with third parties, you agree to these ToS then you can use the Site and Services. However, if your mind is legally incapacitated (mental disability, intoxication, under the age of 18, etc.) for any reason, then you are not allowed to use the Plus Circle Site and Services. For those who are accepting these ToS and using the Plus Circle Site and Services on behalf of a company, organization, government, or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so.
You are responsible for your “Content”, which means any information, material, or other content posted to our Platform. Your Content must comply with our Terms of Service, which includes the Usage and Content Policies, Groups and Events Policies, Organizer and Leadership Standards, Member Restrictions, Payment Policies, Trademark Usage Guidelines, and API License Terms.
We do not own the Content that you post. However, we do require that you provide us a license to use this Content in order for us to operate, improve, promote, and protect Plus Circle and our Platform for the benefit of you and others.
We are not responsible for Content that members post or the communications that members send using our Platform. We generally review Content before it’s posted. If you see Content that violates our Terms of Service, you may report inappropriate Content to us.
We try hard to make sure that our Platform is always available and working, but we cannot guarantee it will be. Occasionally things may not go exactly as planned. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
We are continually improving our Platform. This means that we may modify or discontinue portions of our Platform.
By using our Platform, you agree to the limitations of liability and release in our Terms of Service. You also agree to resolve any disputes you may have with us in the manner described in the Terms of Service. Unless you are based in the European Union, you agree to mandatory arbitration and waive your right to seek relief from a judge or jury in a court of law. Claims can only be bought individually, and not as part of a class action.
You may be based in a country where the laws that apply provide for different or additional rights and obligations. These Terms of Service will point out areas of difference.
Eligibility : Our Platform is available to anyone who is at least 18 years old. You represent that you are at least 18.

Modification, Suspension, and Termination of Your Account : We may modify, suspend, or terminate your account or access to the Platform if, in our sole discretion, we determine that you have violated this Agreement, including any of the policies or guidelines that are part of this Agreement, that it is in the best interest of the Plus Circle community, or to protect our brand or Platform. When this happens, we will notify you of the reasons for the modification, suspension, or termination. We also may remove accounts of members who are inactive for an extended period of time.
