You agree not to use the account, username, or password of another user at any time, nor to disclose your password to any third party. You agree to notify UpgradeUSA immediately if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or access to your password. UpgradeUSA has the right to terminate your account for any reason at our sole discretion.

UpgradeUSA may from time to time offer services and alternative lease programs provided by third-party companies. UpgradeUSA bears no responsibility for the actions or contracts of third-party companies, including contract management, collections practices, or account supervision.

You may register for an account regardless of where you live, but our computer leasing and sales are only available to residents of the United States. All financial transactions will be processed in U.S. dollars.

Privacy

We understand your privacy is important to you, and that you care how your personal information is collected, used and shared with third parties. We appreciate your business and the trust you put in us when you provide your personal information while using our Service. Our policies and practices regarding our users' privacy and personal information are detailed in the UpgradeUSA Privacy Policy. We may in our discretion identify any user to third parties, and/or disclose to third parties any content or information, including but not limited to personally identifiable registration information in response to a law enforcement request for such information.

Proprietary Rights

The Site and the Services are owned and operated by UpgradeUSA. Unless otherwise specified, all materials appearing on the Site, including the text, site design, logos, graphics, legal terms, icons, and images, as well as the selection, assembly and arrangement thereof, are the sole property of UpgradeUSA. All rights in images of computers, laptops, tablets or other technologies included on the Site or in the Service are reserved by the original copyright owners. Descriptive data is supplied by third parties. You may only use the content of the Site for your own personal use. You agree not to view, copy, or procure content or information from the Site by automated means (such as scripts, bots, spiders, crawlers, or scrapers) unless formally authorized by UpgradeUSA under separate written agreement. No materials from the Site or the Services may be copied, reproduced, modified, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any form or by any means without UpgradeUSA’s prior written permission. All rights not expressly granted herein are reserved. Any unauthorized use of the materials appearing on the Site may violate copyright, trademark, and other applicable laws, and could result in criminal or civil penalties.

Email and Text Messages

Notifications or receipts from UpgradeUSA will be delivered to you by email at the address you provided to UpgradeUSA when you created your account or as later updated. You hereby agree and acknowledge that UpgradeUSA is not responsible to notify you in any way other than by email, even if you opt-in to receive text message reminders. Any such text notifications are a courtesy; you remain responsible for minding the due date(s) and other deadlines whether you receive communication from UpgradeUSA or not. UpgradeUSA will not ask you for your personal information, account username, and password, or any of your credit or debit card information via email or text message. UpgradeUSA will have no responsibility for any misuse of such information if you provide such information via email or text message.

Account Cancelation

You may cancel your account at any time. Your account will only be canceled and closed after you have returned all merchandise that has been leased to you (if any) and all transactions have been processed including payment of assessed penalties or the cashing of any refund check. UpgradeUSA may cancel your account in its sole discretion any reason, including but not limited to inactivity or misuse.

Tax

Depending on your state and the nature of the product or service you receive from us, you may be obligated to pay a rental tax, sales tax and/or use tax. Tax rates are different from state to state. You are responsible for paying all such taxes.

Asset Ownership

All assets under lease remain the property of UpgradeUSA even while the item is in your possession. You may be given the option to purchase leased products from UpgradeUSA, either at the end of a lease cycle or at any point during the lease cycle. If you wish to purchase an item you have leased through the Service, you may be able to do so by accessing your account on the Site and looking for the purchase option. In this case, title (ownership) transfers to you as soon as your credit or debit card is authorized for purchase value. If you purchase the title through our purchase program, title (ownership) changes hands as soon as payment has been cleared with UpgradeUSA's primary financial institution. Certain digital products may not be available for purchase or may have different purchase terms, and you should review their specific terms prior to lease or purchase.

Use Of Communication Services

The Site may contain bulletin board services, chat areas, news groups, forums, communities, personal web pages, calendars, and/or other message or communication facilities designed to enable you to communicate with the public at large or with a group (collectively, "Communication Services"). You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send, and receive messages and materials that are proper and related to the particular Communication Service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using a Communication Service, you will not:

2. publish, post, upload, distribute or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent or unlawful topic, name, material or information;

3. upload files that contain software or other material protected by intellectual property laws (or by rights of privacy of publicity) unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents;

4. upload files that contain viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer;

5. advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose, unless such Communication Service specifically allows such messages;

6. conduct or forward surveys, contests, pyramid schemes or chain letters;

7. download any file posted by another user of a Communication Service that you know, or reasonably should know, cannot be legally distributed in such manner;

8. falsify or delete any author attributions, legal or other proper notices or proprietary designations or labels of the origin or source of software or other material contained in a file that is uploaded;

9. restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the Communication Services;

10. violate any code of conduct or other guidelines which may be applicable for any particular Communication Service;

11. harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including e-mail addresses, without their consent; or

12. violate any applicable laws or regulations.

UpgradeUSA reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request or to edit, refuse to post, or remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, at UpgradeUSA’s sole discretion. Materials uploaded to a Communication Service may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction, and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials. Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children in any Communication Service. UpgradeUSA does not control or endorse the content, messages, or information found in any Communication Service and, therefore, UpgradeUSA specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service.
