PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THESE TERMS, INCLUDING THE SECTION RELATING TO THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL, SINCE THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
Changes to these Terms
We may revise and update these Terms from time to time for any reason at our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Services thereafter. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. As we will be continually improving the Services and adding more features, you are expected to check this page each time you access the Services so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.
Use of the Site and the Services
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion and without notice to you, to revise the Site and the Services and to change, suspend or discontinue any aspect of the Site and the Services and we will not be liable to you or to any third party for doing so. You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Services (e.g., providing your own equipment and internet connection and paying any internet access fees). We may also impose rules for and limits on the use of the Site and the Services or restrict your access to part, or all, of the Site and the Services without notice or penalty. Your continued use of the Site and the Services will constitute your acceptance of any such changes.
Registering and Eligibility to Use the Services
You may be required to register for an account to use parts of the Services. You must provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration process and at all other times when you use the Services, and to update the information to keep it accurate, current, and complete. You are the sole authorized user of any account you create through the Services. You are solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree that you shall monitor your account to prevent use by minors, and you will accept full responsibility for any unauthorized use of your password or your account. You may not authorize others to use your accounts, and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. Should you suspect that any unauthorized party may be using your password or account, you will notify us immediately. CV will not be liable and you may be liable for losses, damages, liability, expenses, and fees incurred by CV or a third party arising from someone else using your account, regardless of whether you have notified us of such unauthorized use. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof).
When you register on the Site to use the Services, we may enable or require you to use a single pair of login credentials (“Credentials”). We may also provide you, upon request, with a unique code, or token, that may only be used in connection with the Services and in connection with the federal, state, local or tribal political committee that you have indicated you represent (each, a “Token”). You agree to request a Token only for Services you intend to use and, in the event you no longer represent the political committee for which a Token was generated, access to your account will be terminated and you will cease using the corresponding Token. All Tokens generated prior to November 15, 2022 expired on, and may not be used after, January 31, 2023 and Tokens generated for the next two-year cycle and thereafter will be valid until January 31, 2025. If you fail to use your Token(s) prior to its expiration, you will not be eligible for a refund of any kind. You are solely responsible for securely storing and safeguarding your Credentials and Tokens and will immediately notify CV of any unauthorized access to or use of your Credentials or Tokens, including if they are leaked or stolen.

Governing Law And Venue
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Delaware consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without giving effect to any principles that provide for the application of the law of any other jurisdiction. To the extent the parties are permitted under these Terms to initiate litigation in a court, both you and CV agree that all claims and disputes arising out of or relating to these Terms will be litigated exclusively in the state or federal courts located in the State of Delaware.
Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING SECTION CAREFULLY. IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH CV AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF. THIS SECTION WILL BE REFERRED TO AS THE “ARBITRATION AGREEMENT”.
Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to, or use of, the Site or the Services, to the products you purchase through the Site or the Services, or to your relationship to CV ("Claims") will be exclusively submitted to confidential and binding arbitration in San Francisco, California, including based on contract, tort (including intentional tort), fraud, agency, your or our negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions, or any other sources of law; Claims made as counterclaims, cross-claims, third-party claims, interpleaders or otherwise; and Claims made independently or with other claims; provided, however, that to the extent that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Delaware. The party filing arbitration must submit Claims to the American Arbitration Association and follow its rules and procedures for initiating and pursuing arbitration. Any arbitration hearing that you attend will be held at a place chosen by the American Arbitration Association in the same city as the U.S. District Court closest to your then current residential address, or at some other place to which you and CV agree in writing, and the arbitrator shall apply Delaware law consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act. YOU SHALL NOT BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS IN ARBITRATION BY OR AGAINST OTHER USERS OR TO ARBITRATE ANY CLAIM AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. You may obtain copies of the current rules, and forms and instructions for initiating arbitration by contacting the American Arbitration Association at using the contact information noted below.
American Arbitration Association
A single, neutral arbitrator will resolve Claims. The arbitrator will be either a lawyer with at least ten (10) years’ experience or a retired or former judge, selected in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration will follow the procedures and rules of the American Arbitration Association which are in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless those procedures and rules are inconsistent with these Terms, in which case these Terms will prevail. Those procedures and rules may limit the discovery available to you or us. The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect your customer account information and other confidential information if requested to do so by you or us. Each party to the arbitration will bear the expense of that party's attorneys, experts, and witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails, but a party may recover any or all expenses from another party if the arbitrator, applying applicable law, so determines. The arbitrator's award is final and binding on the parties.
ANY CLAIM YOU HAVE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DATE THE CLAIM ARISES. AS NOTED ABOVE, YOU AND CV HEREBY VOLUNTARILY AND KNOWINGLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT EITHER MAY HAVE TO A JURY TRIAL.
We will not choose to arbitrate any Claim you bring in small claims court. However, if such a Claim is determined by the court to be outside its jurisdiction, the parties agree that the dispute shall then be submitted to arbitration.
You may opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. If you do so, neither you nor CV can force the other to arbitrate as a result of this Agreement. To opt out, you must notify CV in writing no later than 30 days after first becoming subject to this Arbitration Agreement. Your notice must include your name and address, your CV username (if any), the email address you used to set up your CV account (if you have one), and a CLEAR statement that you want to opt out of this Arbitration Agreement. You must send your opt-out notice to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you opt out of this Arbitration Agreement, all other parts of these Terms will continue to apply to you. Opting out of this Arbitration Agreement has no effect on any other arbitration agreements that you may have entered into with us or may enter into in the future with us.
This Arbitration Agreement will survive any termination of your relationship with CV.
These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on the Site or in respect to the Site constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and us. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms operate to the fullest extent permissible by law. You may not assign any of your rights in these Terms, and any such attempt is void but we may assign any or all of our rights and obligations to others at any time. If any provision or part of a provision of these Terms is determined to be unlawful, void, or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from these Terms and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. There is no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship created between you and us as a result of these Terms or use of the Site.
