We use the term “user” or “you” or “your” to mean any user of our Services, whether or not the user has registered with us. We use the term “registered user” to refer to anyone who has registered with us. Registered users may have access to more Services than unregistered users.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of our Services. By registering as a user, you agree to be bound by these Terms as if these Terms were signed by you in ink on a hard-copy agreement.

NCBC respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects users of our Services to do the same. We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law (including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act or “DMCA” at 17 U.S.C. §512) and are properly provided to us. If you would like the benefit of your legal protections under the DMCA, please review the DMCA to ensure your compliance.
If you believe that particular Content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or the infringement of other intellectual property rights, you should send us a written request (“takedown notice”) to remove the allegedly-infringing Content (“Accused Content”). Each takedown notice must be in English and include the following information:
On our receipt of a takedown notice, we may publish the takedown notice to the general public, or provide a copy of the takedown notice to the user that uploaded or provided the Accused Content, or where applicable, share it with law enforcement officials. For any takedown notice that is subject to the provisions of the DMCA, the original provider of the Accused Content may have the right to send a notice to us (“counter notice”) demanding that the Accused Content be restored to the Services.
In compliance with the DMCA or other applicable law, we may implement any takedown notice by removing the Accused Content or other material from public view on the Services, and we may implement any counter notice by restoring the Accused Content or other material to public view on the Services. In either case, NCBC shall bear no liability to you or anyone else for the posting, removal or re-posting of any Accused Content.
Independent of the DMCA and any other applicable laws or regulations, we reserve the right to remove any Accused Content without prior notice, at our sole discretion, and without liability to you or anyone else. In appropriate circumstances, NCBC will also terminate a registered user’s account if we determine the registered user to be a repeat infringer. Our designated copyright agent for sending takedown notices and counter notices is:

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED TERMS IN CONTRACTS WITH CONSUMERS AND, AS A RESULT, THE CONTENTS OF THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, INCLUDING THE CONTENT, ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. WE DO NOT PROVIDE ANY EXPRESS WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT OUR SERVICES OR THOSE OF OUR PARTNERS.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, ON BEHALF OF NCBC, our MEMBERS, officers, ATTORNEYS, employees, directors OR SERVICE PROVIDERS (“Affiliates”), WE DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NONINFRINGEMENT. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED OR FEEL HARMED BY US, THE SERVICES, OR ANYTHING RELATED TO THE SERVICES, YOU MAY CLOSE OR TERMINATE YOUR ACCOUNT AND STOP USING THE SERVICES, AS FURTHER STATED IN THE TERMINATION PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. TERMINATION IS YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY.
WE NEITHER WARRANT NOR REPRESENT THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES WILL NOT INFRINGE THE RIGHTS OF THIRD PARTIES. WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT THE SERVICES WILL FUNCTION WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OR WITHOUT ERRORS. THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES, INCLUDING THE NCBC SITE, MAY BE INTERRUPTED DUE TO MAINTENANCE, UPDATES, OR SYSTEM OR NETWORK FAILURES. WE DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES CAUSED BY ANY SUCH INTERRUPTION OR ERRORS. FURTHERMORE, WE DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY MALFUNCTIONS, IMPOSSIBILITY OF ACCESS, OR POOR USE CONDITIONS OF THE SERVICE DUE TO INAPPROPRIATE EQUIPMENT, DISTURBANCES RELATED TO INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS, TO THE SATURATION OF THE INTERNET OR ANY OTHER NETWORK, AND FOR ANY OTHER REASON.
You may terminate your NCBC account for any reason or no reason, and at any time. To terminate your NCBC account, contact us at Info@BalaCynwyd.org. Termination of your account will be effective upon our processing of the notice we received from you.
We may terminate your NCBC account and these Terms for any reason or no reason, at any time, with or without notice. Any termination by us shall be effective immediately or as may be specified in our notice.
We may restrict, suspend or terminate the account of any registered user, or block the access of any user, who abuses or misuses the Services. Misuse includes, among other things, providing us with false information about you, registering under more than one identity, infringing any intellectual property rights, using any functionality, feature or capability of the Services to generate, support or transmit any form of spam, engaging in any behavior or activity that we asked you not to do, or any other behavior that we, in our sole discretion, deem contrary to the mission and purpose of NCBC and the Services.
Upon the termination of your NCBC account, you will lose access to some or all of the Services. We may block access to the Services from an Internet Protocol (“IP”) address or range of IP addresses associated with those of terminated users. Upon termination, all licenses and other rights granted to you by us in these Terms will immediately cease, but any licenses you have granted to us will survive termination regardless of the reason for such termination. We may retain and use your Content after termination as permitted by the Content License. Any fees invoiced to you prior to termination that have not been paid will continue to be due in accordance with these Terms.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold NCBC harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with any of the following alleged activities: (i) your Content or your access to or use of the Services; (ii) any alleged breach of these Terms; (iii) any breach, infringement, misappropriation or violation of any third-party right including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity right, confidentiality, property right or privacy right; (iv) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities, including, without limitation, any regulatory, administrative and legislative authorities; or (v) any misrepresentation made by you. We ask that you cooperate as reasonably requested by NCBC in the defense of any claim. NCBC reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you will not in any event settle any claim against NCBC without the prior written consent of NCBC, which consent NCBC may refuse in its sole discretion.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY AND AS A RESULT THE CONTENTS OF THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. FOR EXAMPLE, THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY DOES NOT PERMIT THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY IN CONSUMER CONTRACTS.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, Neither NCBC nor any of our BUSINESS PARTNERS, OR ANY OF OUR RESPECTIVE officers, employees, members, directors OR SERVICE PROVIDERS (“Affiliates”) shall be liable for any damages in excess of the fees, if any, you paid NCBC during the calendar year in which such event is claimed to have occurred, or USD $100, whichever amount is greater.
Neither NCBC nor any OF THE NCBC Affiliates shall be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, punitive or consequential damages or loss of use, profit, revenue or data to you, ANY ENTITY, or any third person. This limitation of liability shall apply regardless of whether (i) you base your claim on contract, tort, statute or any other legal theory, (ii) we knew or should have known about the possibility of such damages, or (iii) the limited remedies provided IN these Terms fail of their essential purpose.
Severability. If any provision of these Terms is found by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the parties with respect to the provisions within the context of the overall Terms. If a court or arbitrator finds the modified provision invalid, illegal, void or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms will not be affected.
Entire Agreement. These Terms constitute the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between you and us regarding the Services, and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, with respect to the subject matter of these Terms. You acknowledge that you have had the opportunity to review these Terms with counsel of your choice.
Amendments to these Terms. We reserve the right to modify, supplement or replace these Terms, effective upon posting the revised Terms on the Services, including on the NCBC Site, or by sending a copy of the revised Terms to the email address we have for you. Your use of the Services after any such update or modification shall confirm your agreement to the then-current version of the Terms. If you do not want to agree to any version or set of changes to the Terms, you may terminate your account with us, or otherwise terminate your use of the Services promptly after posting of the revised Terms, in which case the prior set of Terms in effect as of the date of termination shall continue to control any disputes or other issues that may arise regarding your use of the Services. Only modifications, supplements or replacements of these Terms as stated in this provision shall be valid and effective to amend the Terms. Any other purported amendments shall be void and of no force or effect.
No Informal Waivers, Agreements or Representations. Any failure to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by one party does not waive the other party’s right to act with respect to that breach or subsequent similar or other breaches. Except as expressly and specifically contemplated by the Terms, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by either party or its affiliates shall be deemed legally binding unless expressly and specifically documented in a writing signed by the parties that refers to the Terms and states expressly the intent to modify or supplement the Terms.
Assignment and Delegation. You may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under the Terms without the prior written permission of NCBC. Any purported assignment and delegation by you shall be ineffective. We may freely assign or delegate some or all of our rights and obligations under the Terms and Privacy Statement, effective on sending a notice to you at the email address we have for you, or if we have no email address for you, by posting a notice of assignment on the NCBC Services.
