CivicPlus does not intend that the Services be used by anyone under 18 years old. By using the Services, you represent that you are over 18 years of age and that you are legally able to enter into this agreement. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a user is under 18 years old, we will promptly delete any personal information in that user’s account.
CONTINUATION OF SERVICES
CivicPlus agrees to continue providing you with the Services, and the license to use CP Connect, so long as you continue to make the applicable monthly payments and your account is kept current. If at any time you stop making such payments and your account becomes more than 30 days in arrears, CivicPlus reserves the right to discontinue your Services. CivicPlus will give you 10 days’ notice prior to discontinuing your Services due to non-payment.
INFORMATION ABOUT YOU PROVIDED TO CP CONNECT
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE MAY BE SUBJECT TO PUBLIC DISCLOSURE UNDER GOVERNMENT OPEN RECORDS LAWS
A key feature of our Service is the ability to provide information to government agencies in a user-friendly manner. However, information collected by government agencies is often subject to disclosure based on laws related to public records, such as the California Public Records Act. We have no control over these laws, and the information you provide to us that is then sent to a government agency may be subject to public disclosure. As such, you represent that you understand that the information provided to CP Connect that is submitted to government agencies may be subject to public disclosure. We assume no responsibility, and you release us from any responsibility, for any disclosure of your information based on government open records laws, and any and all consequences that result from such disclosure.
OUR APPROACH TO CLAIMS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT
We value your intellectual property rights. As such, we reserve the right to suspend and/or terminate any user’s account who is found to have infringed on the intellectual property rights of users, CP Connect, or third parties, or who violated any laws related to intellectual property. In the event that you have a good faith belief that your intellectual property rights or the rights of someone else have been violated on our Services, and you want us to delete, edit, or disable the material in question, you must provide us with all of the following information (as required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998): (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identiﬁcation of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notiﬁcation, a representative list of such works; (c) identiﬁcation of the material that is claimed to be infringed or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufﬁcient to permit us to locate the material; (d) information reasonably sufﬁcient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted; (e) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notiﬁcation is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. For this notiﬁcation to be effective, you must provide it to CP Connect’s designated agent at:
302 S. 4th Street, STE 500, Manhattan, KS 66502
RESPECT FOR THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF OTHERS
Although you are free to provide information as part of our Services, you agree to respect the intellectual property rights of others. You may not upload, download, display, perform, transmit, or otherwise distribute any information or content in violation of intellectual property or proprietary rights of any third parties. If you do not respect a third party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights, you are solely responsible for any violations of law. In addition, you are solely responsible for infringement of third-party rights caused by any information that is generated from your account.
THIRD PARTY SITES AND SERVICES ARE BEYOND OUR CONTROL
Our Services may be integrated with services provided by third-parties as part of the functionality of the Services. But we have no control over third parties. Thus, we make no guarantees about, and assume no responsibility for, the information or services provided by third parties.
LET US KNOW IF YOU WANT TO TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT
At any time, you may terminate your account by sending us an email at CPConnect@civicplus.help, or by calling us at 888.228.2233. When you contact us to terminate your account, we will remove all of your data from our servers within a reasonable amount of time, unless we are required to retain your information by law, contract or as required by government agencies, please see how your local and state laws apply to you.

You agree that we will not be liable for any loss that you incur if someone else uses your account, username, or password, either with or without your knowledge.
