Acceptance of Terms of Service.
By registering for and/or using the Service in any manner, including visiting or browsing The Table Group Website, you agree to these Terms of Service, and all other operating rules, policies, and procedures that we may publish from time to time through the Service, each of which is incorporated by reference, and each of which may be updated from time to time without notice to you.
These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Service.
Arbitration notice and class action waiver: except for certain types of disputes described in the arbitration section below, you agree that disputes between you and us will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration and you waive your right to participate in a class action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration.
Eligibility. You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age. If you are under age 18, you may not, under any circumstances or for any reason, register for an Account (defined below) or use the Service. We may, in our sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. You are solely responsible for ensuring that these Terms of Service and your use of the Service (a) are in compliance with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to you and (b) do not violate any other agreement to which you are a party. The right to access the Service is revoked where these Terms of Service or use of the Service is prohibited or to the extent offering, sale or provision of the Service conflicts with any applicable law, rule or regulation. Further, the Service are offered only for your use, and not for the use or benefit of any third party.
Registration and User Seats. To sign up yourself or others for the Service, you must register for an account on the Service (an "Account"). You must provide accurate and complete information for your Account. For Services licensed on a per-seat or per-member basis, access will be limited to the number of Users (defined below) for whom you have purchased seats. Unless you have purchased a product that expressly licenses multiple User seats (e.g. The Meeting Advantage), each Account shall only be used by the individual user that registered such Account. You may never use another person’s user Account without permission from The Table Group, or share your Account or access credentials with any other individual or entity. You should never publish, distribute, or post login information for your Account. "User" means an individual (a natural human!) whom you authorize to use the Service. Users may include, for example, your employees, consultants, contractors and agents, and third parties with which you transact business. If your account is connected to a product expressly allows multiple User seats, then you shall designate one User for each seat you purchase. A User’s access credentials may not be shared with any other individual or entity for purposes of using the Services. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Account, password. You shall be responsible for acts, omissions, or breaches hereunder by any of your Users or any other individuals using your Account or credentials for the Services. You must keep your Account information updated, and you must notify us immediately of any change in your eligibility to use the Services or breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. Users may have the ability to invite other users to their teams, unless the applicable Account settings restrict this functionality.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. You may have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Indemnification. You are solely responsible for your conduct and your data related to the Service. You shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us, our affiliates and each of our and their respective employees, contractors, directors, suppliers and representatives from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, that arise from or relate to your use or misuse of, or access to, the Services, Content, or otherwise from your Customer Data, violation of these Terms of Service, or infringement by you, or any third party using your Account or identity in the Services, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.

Entire Agreement and Severability. These Terms of Service are the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the Services, including use of the Site, and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and us with respect to the Services. If any provision of these Terms of Service is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that these Terms of Service will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. The failure of The Table Group to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.
Force Majeure. We shall not be liable for any failure to perform our obligations hereunder where such failure results from any cause beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation.
Subcontractors. We use subcontractors to provide certain aspects of the Services and in some cases permit them to access Customer Data subject to appropriate obligations of security, confidentiality and compliance with applicable laws.

You acknowledge and agrees that The Table Group may occasionally send notices to you regarding your Account or the Services via email or via the Services.
No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any part of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of our right to later enforce that or any other part of these Terms of Service. Waiver of compliance in any particular instance does not mean that we will waive compliance in the future. In order for any waiver of compliance with these Terms of Service to be binding, we must provide you with written notice of such waiver through one of our authorized representatives.
Open Source. The Service may contain or be distributed with open source software or other third-party software which may be covered by a different license. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the obligations of The Table Group set forth in these Terms of Service do not extend to any open source software or such other third-party software which may be made available by The Table Group, or otherwise obtained or used by you. You agree that all open source software or such other third-party software shall be and shall remain subject to the terms and conditions under which it is provided, and you shall be responsible for compliance with such terms.

Federal Government End Use Provisions. We provide the Services, including related software and technology, for ultimate federal government end use solely in accordance with the following: government technical data and software rights related to the Services include only those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this Agreement.

If a government agency has a need for rights not granted under these terms, it must negotiate with The Table Group to determine if there are acceptable terms for granting those rights, and a mutually acceptable written addendum specifically granting those rights must be included in any applicable agreement.
Headings; Interpretation. The section and paragraph headings in these Terms of Service are for convenience only and shall not affect their interpretation. Any use of "including" "for example" or "such as" in these Terms of Service shall be read as being followed by "without limitation" where appropriate.
Any claim related to these Terms of Service, the Site(s) or the Service must be brought within one year. The one-year period begins on the date when the claim first could be filed. If it is not filed, then that claim is permanently barred. This applies to you and your successors.
