Veehd Plugin Terms of Service

Welcome to www.veehd.com (the “Site”), a website operated by Veehd Plugin Limited (“Veehd Plugin”, “we”, “us”, or “our”).  We provide our users (each user, “you”) with turn-key monetization solutions powered by Bing, Yahoo! and other leading search providers (collectively, the “Services”). The following terms and conditions (the “Terms of Service”) form a binding agreement between you and us.  

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY.  BY ACCESSING THE SITE AND USING THE SERVICES YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE.  IF YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS OF SERVICE ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER LEGAL ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ENTITY TO ALL OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, IN WHICH CASE THE TERMS “YOU” OR “YOUR” SHALL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUCH AUTHORITY, OR IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THIS SITE. YOU HEREBY AGREE TO THE USE OF ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS IN ORDER TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT, TO CREATE OTHER RECORDS AND TO THE ELECTRONIC DELIVERY OF NOTICES, POLICIES AND RECORDS OF TRANSACTIONS BETWEEN YOU AND VEEHD PLUGIN WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT, AS FURTHER DETAILED IN SECTION 14.

Some Services may also be subject to additional guidelines, rules, or terms (“Additional Terms”). For example, any use of the Veehd Plugin Toolbar is governed by the Veehd Plugin Toolbar Terms and Conditions. If there is any conflict between the Terms of Service and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms take precedence in relation to that Service. The Additional Terms for such Services will be incorporated by reference in these Terms of Service.

We may at our sole discretion change, add, or delete portions of these Terms of Service at any time on a going-forward basis. It is your responsibility to check these Terms of Service for changes prior to use of the Site, and in any event your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these Terms of Service constitutes your acceptance of any changes.

  5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.  YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT WE ARE ONLY WILLING TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE SITE AND TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES IF YOU AGREE TO CERTAIN LIMITATIONS OF OUR LIABILITY TO YOU AND TO THIRD PARTIES.

  3. Electronic Communications.  We can only give you the benefits of our service by conducting business through the Internet, and therefore we need you to consent to our giving you Communications electronically. This Section 14 informs you of your rights when receiving Communications from us electronically.  For contractual purposes, you (i) consent to receive communications from us in an electronic form; and (ii) agree that all terms and conditions, agreements, notices, documents, disclosures, and other communications (“Communications”) that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such Communications would satisfy if it were in a writing.  Your consent to receive Communications and do business electronically, and our agreement to do so, applies to all of your interactions and transactions with us. The foregoing does not affect your non-waivable rights.  You may also receive a copy of these Terms of Service by accessing this Site.  You may withdraw your consent to receive Communications electronically by contacting us in the manner described below. If you withdraw your consent, from that time forward, you must stop using the Site and Services. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the legal validity and enforceability of any obligations or any electronic Communications provided or business transacted between us prior to the time you withdraw your consent.  Please keep us informed of any changes in your email or mailing address so that you continue to receive all Communications without interruption.
  4. General Terms.  You are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws.  The Terms of Service and the relationship between you and Veehd Plugin will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without giving effect to any choice of laws principles that would require the application of the laws of a different country or state.  Any legal action, suit or proceeding arising out of or relating to the Terms of Service, or your use of the Site or Services must be instituted non-exclusively in the federal or state courts located in Fairfax County, Virginia and in any other jurisdiction.  You further consent to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue in, and agree to service of process issued or authorized by, any such court.  These Terms of Service are personal to you, and you may not transfer, assign or delegate your right and/or duties under these Terms of Service to anyone else and any attempted assignment or delegation is void.  You acknowledge that we have the right hereunder to seek an injunction, if necessary, to stop or prevent a breach of your obligations hereunder.  The paragraph headings in these Terms of Service, shown in boldface type, are included only to help make these Terms of Service easier to read and have no binding effect.  Any delay or failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.  No waiver by us will have effect unless such waiver is set forth in writing, signed by us; nor will any such waiver of any breach or default constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. These Terms of Service constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior oral or written understandings, communications or agreements. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms of Service, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the Terms of Service will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the intent of the parties, and the remainder of these Terms of Service will continue in full force and effect. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
  5. SURVIVAL. Sections 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7 through 17, as well as any other limitations on liability explicitly set forth herein and our proprietary rights in and to the Site, Veehd Plugin Content, User Content, Feedback, Our Technology and the Services, will survive the expiration or termination of these Terms of Service for any reason.
  6. NOTICE; VIOLATIONS.  We may give notice to you by email, a posting on the Site, or other reasonable means. You must give notice to us in writing via email to support@veehd.com or as otherwise expressly provided. Please report any violations of these Terms of Service to support@veehd.com.
