You will be billed for the same subscription plan (or the most similar subscription plan, if your prior plan is no longer available) at the then-current subscription fee plus any applicable taxes. If you pay for your subscription on a monthly basis, then, depending on your subscription tier, we will process your payments for any renewal subscription every 31 days, 32 days, or on the same date each month. If you pay for your current subscription on an annual basis, then we will process your payment for any renewal subscription on the first day of the renewal term. Additional terms and conditions may apply upon renewal, and subscription fees may change at any time, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
11.3 Cancellation and Refund Policy
You may cancel your subscription to the G9MD.TV Service at any time, after which we will not renew your subscription. Please contact billing@G9MD.TV to dispute a charge, cancel your membership plan or subscription, or request a refund. For the avoidance of doubt, you do not have a right of withdrawal, but you may cancel your membership plan or subscription at any time as described above. For clarity, there is no prorated refund of any fees upon any cancellation. You agree to immediately pay any amounts accrued, but remaining unpaid, as of cancellation (if any).
11.4 You May Need to Agree to Additional Terms or Agreements
You acknowledge that you may be required to agree to additional or superseding Terms or agreements if your membership plan or subscription is automatically renewed as described above. For example, if you would like a subscription to the G9MD.TV Service that is different from G9MD.TV's standard subscription (i.e., a promotional subscription), then you may be required to agree to an additional set of Terms.
11.5 Special Terms for Premium Users
G9MD will provide the uptime G9MD.TV Service Commitment levels for the G9MD.TV Service as set forth in the G9MD.TV Service Level Agreement. Premium Users may contact customer support via email at premiumsupport@G9MD.TV. We will endeavor to respond to your support requests and inquiries within four (4) business hours of our receipt; our support business hours are 9:00AM-5:00 PM (CST), Monday through Friday excluding US holidays. With the exception of Premium Users with an active and currently paid Enterprise Plan, G9MD does not provide live support for the G9MD.TV Service, and all support requests must be made, and will be responded to by email.
11.5.1 The Premium G9MD.TV Service may include an ability to select privacy settings for viewing a particular piece of Produced Content or Channel as "Only Me," "Members," or "Public." It may also include an ability to select embedding options for embedding a specific piece of Produced Content into a third-party web page with the Embeddable Player, restricting its viewing in the Embeddable Video Player to only specific URL's that you have allowed, and restricting Produced Content from being viewed in restricted geographical regions. While G9MD uses commercially reasonable efforts to respect such privacy and embedding designations, you understand that whether or not Produced Content is published or marked private by you, G9MD does not guarantee any confidentiality or privacy with respect to any of Produced Content.
11.5.2 The Premium G9MD.TV Service may include an ability for Premium Users to monetize and generate revenue from specific Produced Content by charging PPV Fees or other subscription fees to Users for accessing such Produced Content. It may also include an ability for Premium Users to sell Advertising Inventory in connection with Produced Content. "Advertising Inventory" means any electronic advertising that you may insert, embed or otherwise enable for display in conjunction with the Produced Content; provided, that:
a. any such Advertising Inventory shall be subject to any specific G9MD policies regarding advertising (and the integration thereof with Produced Content) displayed in connection with the G9MD.TV Service;
b. your sale of the Advertising Inventory is subject to any guidelines for advertising that G9MD.TV may implement; and

11.6 Sweepstakes and Contests
G9MD may operate sweepstakes, contests and similar promotions (collectively, "Promotions") through the G9MD.TV Service. You should carefully review the rules (e.g., the "Official Rules") of each Promotion in which you participate through the G9MD.TV Service, as they may contain additional important information about G9MD's rights to and ownership of the submissions you make as part of the Promotions and as a result of your participation in such Promotion. To the extent that the Terms and conditions of such Official Rules conflict with these Terms, the Terms and conditions of such Official Rules will control.
Certain Premium Users may be able to connect accounts to new or existing Stripe accounts or other Payment Sources to enable donations from other Users (the "Donations Feature"). Subscribers to other plans may upgrade to an Enterprise Plan in order to enable the Donations Feature. Premium Users without a Stripe account may be re-directed to www.stripe.com in order to create a Stripe account. Premium Users will have an option to disconnect their Stripe Account at any time to disable the Donations Feature.
Once the Donations Feature, if available, is enabled for a Premium User's account, a "Donate" button may appear on all of the Premium User's event pages or event embeds. Any viewer can click this button to open the Donations Feature pop-up form and donate to the Premium User's connected Stripe account. Users who donate will receive an email receipt confirming their donation amount. Transactions are processed by Stripe. Donation funds go directly to the connected Stripe account and are not passed through G9MD.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, you may use the G9MD.TV Service, and may be able to access specific Content, User Submissions, Produced Content, and Premium Content. You will not remove, alter or conceal any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the G9MD.TV Service, Content, User Submissions, Produced Content, Premium Content, or related products and services, and you will not reproduce, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works based on, perform, display, publish, distribute, transmit, broadcast, sell, license or otherwise exploit the Site, Content, User Submissions (other than your User Submissions). You may distribute certain Content or User Submissions, solely where G9MD makes the means for distribution of such Content or User Submissions possible via an Embeddable Player.

For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to G9MD.TV's customer service through support@G9MD.TV. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section 5(D), your DMCA notice may not be valid.
13.2.1 If you receive notice by G9MD that your Content or material has been removed (or to which access was disabled), or if you believe that your Content or material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the Copyright Owner, the Copyright Owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your Content, you may provide G9MD with a counter-notification. To be valid, a counter-notification must be a written communication provided to G9MD's designated copyright agent containing the following information:

Unless the Copyright Owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider, member or user, the removed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10-14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at G9MD's sole discretion.
13.3.3 G9MD reserves the right to terminate without notice any User's access to the G9MD.TV Service if that User is determined by G9MD to be a "repeat infringer."

This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these Terms and your use of the G9MD.TV Service.
G9MD reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify G9MD, and you agree to cooperate with G9MD's defense of these claims.
You acknowledge and agree that G9MD is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of, and G9MD does not endorse, any such websites or the information, materials, resources, products, content, or services on or accessible through such Third-Party Services. In addition, your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of, advertisers found on or through the G9MD.TV Service are solely between you and such advertiser.

You will not assign these Terms, in whole or part, without the written consent of G9MD. G9MD may assign these terms or any rights hereunder without your consent.
18.2 Relationship of the Parties
G9MD is an independent contractor, not your agent, joint venturer, partner, or fiduciary, and does not undertake to perform any of your regulatory obligations, or assume any responsibility for you or your business or operations. Each party is responsible for determining the assignment of its personnel and contractors, and for their direction, control, and compensation.
18.3 Business Contact Information; Subcontractors
G9MD and its affiliates, and their subcontractors, may process and store business contact information of your personnel in connection with the performance of these Terms wherever they do business. G9MD may use personnel and resources in locations worldwide and third party suppliers to support the delivery of the G9MD.TV Service, and G9MD's products and services.
18.4 Force Majeure
G9MD is not responsible for failure to fulfill its obligations under these Terms due to causes beyond its control, including, but not limited to, extraordinary Internet congestion or extraordinary connectivity issues experienced by major telecommunications providers and unrelated to G9MD infrastructure or connectivity to the Internet, or failure at a G9MD co-location facility.
18.5 Governing Law
Both parties agree to the application of the laws of the state of Texas to these Terms, without regard to conflict of law principles. If a lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, then you and G9MD agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts located within Dallas County in the State of Texas. Nothing in these Terms affects statutory rights of consumers that cannot be waived or limited by contract. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to transactions under these Terms. YOU AND G9MD AGREE THAT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE G9MD.TV SERVICE MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
18.6 Waiver and Severability
The failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect either G9MD.TV's or your right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of these Terms constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. If any portion of these Terms is found to be unenforceable, such portion will be modified to reflect the parties' intention and only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.
All notices under these Terms must be in writing and sent to the address on record, unless a party designates in writing a different address. The parties consent to the use of electronic means and facsimile transmissions for communications as a signed writing.
If you have questions about these Terms or would like to request a copy of these Terms or any other records relating to these Terms of your use of the Site and the G9MD.TV Service, please contact G9MD at support@G9MD.TV or by sending a written request to:
2633 McKinney Ave., #253
Dallas, TX 75204, USA
Subject to limited exceptions described below, these Terms provide that all disputes between you and G9MD will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights in any such dispute. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury, and your claims cannot be brought as a class action. Please review Section 19 ("Dispute Resolution and Arbitration") for the details regarding your agreement to arbitrate most disputes with G9MD. NOTHING IN THESE TERMS SHALL AFFECT ANY NON-WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT APPLY TO YOU. If any provision or provisions of these Terms shall be held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. YOU AND G9MD AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES. OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.
Despite the provisions of Section 19, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to:
a. bring an individual action in small claims court;
b. pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available;
c. seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or
d. to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
Any arbitration between you and G9MD will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting G9MD.
19.4 Notice; Process
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or by electronic mail ("Notice"). G9MD's address for Notice is: G9MD Legal, 2633 McKinney Ave., #253, Dallas, TX 75204, USA and legal@G9MD.TV. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or G9MD may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or G9MD must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, G9MD will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by G9MD in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator's award; or (iii) $1,000. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, G9MD will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Dallas County, Texas, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse G9MD for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
19.6 No Class Actions
YOU AND G9MD AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and G9MD agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
19.7 Modifications to this Arbitration Provision
If G9MD makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to G9MD's address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to G9MD's address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
If Section 19.6 f is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 19 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 19 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 19 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.
These Terms are the entire and exclusive agreement between G9MD and you regarding the G9MD.TV Service relating to the subject matter herein and supersede and replace any prior agreements between G9MD and you regarding the G9MD.TV Service. These will not be modified except in writing, signed by both parties, or by a change to these Terms or policies made by G9MD as set forth above.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
The parties specifically disavow any desire or intention to create a "third party" beneficiary contract, and specifically declare that no person, except for the parties and their permitted assigns, shall have any rights hereunder nor any right of enforcement hereof.
