By submitting your payment and other subscription details, you are making an offer to us to buy a Subscription.

You may cancel your Subscription at any time as set out below.
17) SETUP AND PAYMENT.
17.1 Fees – The User shall pay all fees as specified in the purchase order and in the manner and frequency described. Subscription fees are based on monthly periods that begin on the subscription start date and each monthly anniversary thereof; therefore, fees for subscriptions added in the middle of a monthly period will be charged for that full monthly period and the monthly periods remaining in the subscription term. Except as otherwise specified herein or on the Site (a) fees are based on services purchased and not actual usage and (b) fees paid are non-refundable.
17.2 Invoicing and Payment
(a) For purchases made by credit card, PayPal (or other payment processing system accepted by ICE), the User will provide ICE with valid and updated information for such payment processing system used.

ICE does not protect the User from unauthorized use of User's password.
17.3 Non-Payment: Overdue Charges – If any charges are not received from the User by the due date, then at the discretion of ICE: (a) such charges may accrue late interest at the rate of ONE AND ONE-HALF (1.5%) percent of the outstanding balance per month, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less, from the date such payment was due until the date paid, plus all expenses of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs; and/or (b) ICE may condition future subscription renewals and other purchases on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 17.2 (Invoicing and Payment).

The User agrees that any disputes or claims that the User may have against ICE will be (except as stated below) finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration.

The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and, where appropriate, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Consumer Rules”), both of which are available that the AAA web site www.adr.org.

If such costs are determined by the arbitrator to be excessive, ICE will pay all arbitration fees and expenses. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator will make a decision in writing, and will provide a statement of reasons if requested by a party. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the User and ICE may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. THE USER UNDERSTANDS THAT ABSENT THIS PROVISION, THE USER WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL.

44) CHANGES TO THE TERMS.
ICE reserves the right to modify these terms from time to time at its sole discretion and without any notice. Changes to these terms become effective on the date they are posted, and the User’s continued use of the Site after such changes will signify and imply that the User agreed to be bound by them.
