TRADEMARKS

All PG trademarks are strictly owned by PG, and nothing in these terms can be construed to transfer ownership rights or grant any permission, license or other rights to any PG trademark without written authorization from PG.

The names of actual companies and products mentioned within the PG Website may be the trademarks of their respective owners.

Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.

GENERAL LEGAL TERMS 

The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and PG and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which PG may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and PG in relation to the Services.

You acknowledge and agree that the form and nature of the Services, which PG provides, may change from time to time with or without prior notice to you.

As part of PG’s continuing innovation, you acknowledge and agree that PG may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally at PG’s sole discretion, without prior notice to you. You may stop using the Services at any time. You do not need to specifically inform PG when you stop using the Services.

You acknowledge and agree that if PG disables access to your account, you may be prevented from accessing the Services, your account details or any files or other content, which is contained in your account.

You acknowledge and agree that while PG may not currently have set a fixed limit on the number of transmissions, posts or comments you may send, receive or store/manage through the Services, such fixed limits may be set by PG at any time, at PG’s discretion.

You agree that if PG does not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which PG has the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of PG’s rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to PG.

Unless PG has given you specific written permission to do so, you may not assign (or grant a sub-license of) your rights to use the Services, grant a security interest in or over your rights to use the Services, or otherwise transfer any part of your rights to use the Software. This means also that you shall not share your password or member access with non-members or ineligible members.

When these Terms come to an end, all of the legal rights, obligations and liabilities that you and PG have benefited from, been subject to (or which have accrued over time while the Terms have been in force), or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, shall be unaffected by this cessation, and the provisions of this agreement shall continue to apply to such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.

If any disagreement or dispute arises regarding these Terms or any rights or obligations conveyed hereunder, the disagreement shall be resolved, whenever possible, by meeting and conferring. If such efforts are unsuccessful, either you or PG (collectively “Parties” or individually “Party”) shall seek a resolution via binding arbitration, to be conducted in the State of Florida, County of Broward, USA and in accordance with the then-prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. Any award conferred shall be enforceable in any court of suitable jurisdiction in the State of Florida, USA. The arbitration requirement does not apply to requests for injunctive relief.

Parties agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, both Parties each waive any right to a jury trial. Parties both agree that either Party may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights. Venue for any such suit shall be in the State of Florida, Broward County, USA.

The Terms, and your relationship with PG under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida, USA, without regard to conflict of laws provisions. You and PG agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the State of Florida to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that PG shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.

If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms, which will remain in full force and effect.

These Terms are effective as of August 13, 2016.
