4. Fees and Charges. All purchases of products and/or services are subject to the additional terms presented to you during the purchase process (e.g., terms of sale located on the check-out page) (the “Terms of Sale”). We reserve the right to change or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, some or all of our services at any time with or without notice. In the event we introduce a new service, the fees for that service, if any, are effective at the launch of the service. We may also choose to temporarily lower the fees for any service-based fees for promotional events, and such changes are effective when we post information about the promotional event on the Online Services. With respect to any online transactions, however, we will not charge your credit card until you have first had an opportunity to review and accept the amounts to be charged to your credit card. From time to time, you may have the opportunity to purchase certain products and/or services that are advertised on the Online Services but are offered for sale by third parties. YOU MUST BE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER TO MAKE ANY SUCH PURCHASES. Additionally, Herschend may post, on behalf of third parties or other users, coupons, incentives, rebates, and other promotional offers. We assume no responsibility for, and you are solely responsible for confirming, the availability, appropriateness, accuracy, sufficiency, correctness, veracity, completeness, reliability and timeliness of any third party’s Submitted Content (as defined below). You agree and acknowledge that Herschend has no control over such Submitted Content, and as such, has no responsibility or liability to you, your assignee or designee, or anyone acting on your behalf in connection with any such offers or sales of services or products or any related transactions. The inclusion of any third party advertisements, including Submitted Content by other users on the Online Services, does not imply endorsement or sponsorship by Herschend, and Herschend expressly disclaims any and all liability related thereto. You are solely responsible for any and all consequences of any such activities, transactions and relationships that you may conduct or form with others regardless of whether such transactions were introduced, contemplated, or completed as a result of the Online Services. Any purchases that you make from such third parties or users who have advertised on or through the Online Services are made at your own risk, and Herschend expressly disclaims all warranties and guarantees, express or implied, with respect to such purchases.

If Herschend, in its sole discretion, determines that a violation of these Terms of Use has occurred, or if Herschend believes that your actions may cause legal liability for you, other users or us, Herschend may take any actions or pursue any legal remedies that it believes are necessary or prudent, including, but not limited to, issuing a warning, filing a complaint, deleting any posted material from our Online Services, suspending or canceling your Account, releasing User Information, filing a report with the appropriate authorities and/or excluding any person(s) who may have violated any terms of these Terms of Use. Herschend may cooperate with any investigation by any federal, state, or local body or any court or tribunal. Such cooperation may be with or without notice to you.

12. Linking Policy. Herschend has entered into arrangements with certain third party online service owners which allow us to place on such third party’s website (“Third Party Site”), and allows the third party to place on our Online Services, a hyperlink (a “Link”) or a banner advertisement (“Banner Ad”) containing a Link which allows our respective users to connect to the home page of Third Party Sites or our Online Services, as applicable. These Links and Banner Ads are provided for the benefit of the users of the Online Services. A Link or Banner Ad to or from a Third Party Site does not imply that Herschend endorses the content on or the business of the Third Party Site. You are solely responsible for determining the integrity and reliability of the information on the Third Party Site. We are not responsible for the content, accuracy, or opinions expressed on any Third Party Site. We will not, and are under no obligation to, investigate, monitor or check the Third Party Sites for accuracy or completeness, or for any obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, indecent, profane, defamatory or unlawful content or materials. If you decide to leave the Online Services and access a Third Party Site, you do so at your own risk. We are not responsible for the privacy policies applicable to Third Party Sites.

YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE ONLINE SERVICES, INCLUDING ITS CONTENT, ARE AT YOUR SOLE DISCRETION AND RISK. THE ONLINE SERVICES (INCLUDING CONTENT SUCH AS ITEM DESCRIPTIONS) ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS,” “WHERE IS,” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THESE TERMS OF USE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, HERSCHEND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, SUITABILITY, REASONABLE CARE, SECURITY, QUALITY, TIMELINESS, AVAILABILITY, COMPLETENESS, RELIABILITY, ACCURACY, TRUTHFULNESS, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT IN RESPECT OF THE ONLINE SERVICES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL CONTENT THEREON), OR COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION POSTED WITH RESPECT TO ANY ITEMS OFFERED FOR BID OR SALE OR MATERIALS POSTED BY HERSCHEND, ITS PARTNERS, OR OTHER THIRD PARTIES (INCLUDING OTHER USERS) OR ANY OTHER MATERIALS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE ONLINE SERVICES.

15. WAIVER OF CLAIMS. BY USING THE ONLINE SERVICES, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR AGREEMENT TO AND DO THEREBY WAIVE ALL CLAIMS WHICH HAVE NOT BEEN FILED BUT MAY HAVE ACCRUED AGAINST HERSCHEND OR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, PARENTS, SUBSIDIARIES, PARTNERS AND AFFILIATES PRIOR TO OR AS OF THE DATE OF YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE ONLINE SERVICES, FOR ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE ONLINE SERVICES, WHETHER IN LAW OR EQUITY, AND SUCH CLAIMS ARE FOREVER BARRED.

17. Revocation of Access. Herschend reserves the right to suspend or revoke your access to the Online Services or any use authorizations relating to the Online Services granted to you.

18. Use of Software. We may make certain software available to you from the Online Services. If you download software from the Online Services, the software, including all files and images contained in or generated by the software, and accompanying data (collectively, “Software”), are deemed licensed to you by Herschend, for your personal, noncommercial, home use only. You acknowledge and agree that your access to and use of the Software may be subject to additional terms. Such download does not transfer either the title or the intellectual property rights to the Software, and we and/or our third party licensors retain full and complete title to the Software as well as all intellectual property rights therein. You shall not sell, redistribute, or reproduce the Software, nor shall you decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, or otherwise convert the Software to a human-perceivable form. You agree to comply with all United States and other applicable Laws relating to the export, re-export, or transshipment of the Software. All trademarks and logos are owned by Herschend or its licensors, and You shall not copy or use them in any manner.

19. User Input. All electronic mail or communications provided by you to Herschend may be used by Herschend for any purpose without compensation to the contributor, subject to Herschend’s Privacy Policy.

20. MANDATORY ARBITRATION. You agree and understand that this Section is deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, satisfies the “writing” requirement of that act, applies to your use of the Online Services, and governs all claims, disputes, or controversies between you and Herschend and each and all Herschend Parties, including but not limited to tort and contract claims, claims based upon any federal, state, or local statute, law, order, ordinance, or regulation, and claims over the applicability of this arbitration provision (collectively “Claims”). This Section can only be changed or terminated upon mutual agreement. You understand and agree that all Claims shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration using the American Arbitration Association's (“AAA”) Commercial Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) in effect on the date of initiation of the arbitration, except as to those AAA Rules that conflict with or differ from this Terms of Use, by one or more arbitrators appointed in accordance with said rules at a location within Fulton County, Georgia. Any controversy concerning whether a dispute is arbitral shall be determined by the arbitrator(s) and not by the court. In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Terms of Use and may award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees).

HOWEVER, WITH ARBITRATION: (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED.

Each party to the arbitration will have the right, at its own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of its own choosing. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but, if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Herschend to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section to be enforceable, then Herschend will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the arbitration decision and award (if any) may be entered in or by any court that has jurisdiction over the parties pursuant to Section 9 of the Federal Arbitration Act.

21. Applicable Law. You acknowledge that the Online Services, including the Content, are controlled in and originate from the United States. Herschend makes no representation that any of the Content is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Herschend has no responsibility for any access to the Online Services from territories where the Content may be illegal or otherwise prohibited. If you choose to access the Online Services from other locations, you do so at your own risk, and you are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. Any claim relating to the use of the Online Services, including any Content, shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to its conflicts of laws rules and shall be resolved pursuant to Section 20 of this Terms of Use. User expressly consents to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of Georgia for any such claim. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to these Terms of Use.

22. Notice. Any notices given pursuant to these Terms of Use that are directed to Herschend shall be given by postal mail to: Herschend Family Entertainment, Attn: Online Services Terms of Use, 5445 Triangle Parkway, Suite 200, Peachtree Corners, GA 30092. Any notice from Herschend that is directed to you shall be delivered to the mailing address or email address you provided us at the time of Registration. Notice shall be deemed given twenty four (24) hours after email is sent, unless we are notified that the email address is invalid or, in the case of notice sent via postal mail, three (3) business days after the date of mailing. Herschend may also give notice of changes to these Terms of Use or other matters related to Herschend by displaying notices to you on the Online Services.

23. General. These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between Herschend and you with respect to your use of the Online Services and supersede all previous and contemporaneous agreements, proposals and communications, written or oral, with respect to this subject matter. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of any section. If any part of these Terms of Use is deemed invalid or void, that part of these Terms of Use shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any of the remaining conditions. Herschend’s failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. No agency, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms of Use. You may terminate these Terms of Use for convenience at any time by refraining from accessing or using the Online Services. Herschend may terminate these Terms of Use for convenience at any time by sending a notice to you or terminating your access to the Online Services. The preamble section and Sections 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 20, 21, 22, and 23 shall survive any expiration or termination of these Terms of Use.

24. Infringement Policy. Pursuant to § 201.38 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), Herschend respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Herschend may, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, cancel postings and/or terminate the Accounts of users who may be causing Infringement Violations.

If you have found that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been violated, please submit the following information to our designated agent.

A. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; B. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a list of such works at that site; C.

DMCA COUNTER-NOTIFICATION PROCEDURE (FOR COPYRIGHTED WORKS ONLY): After Herschend notifies a user that it has removed or disabled access to the user’s post because it contains material that allegedly infringes a third party’s copyright, the user may give Herschend a statutory counter-notification pursuant to the DMCA in an effort to have the material in question restored. Any counter-notifications must be given in writing by email, fax or regular mail (see below) to Herschend’s designated agent, Bryan Hardman, info@hfecorp.com, and must contain the following elements:

A. Your physical or electronic signature; B. A description of the material that was taken down; C. The URL of the material before it was taken down; D. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the item to be removed or disabled; E. Your name, address and telephone number; and F. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court where your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States, that you consent to jurisdiction in Gwinnett County, Georgia), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.

Note that you may be found liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity does not infringe the copyrights of others. If you are unsure whether certain material may infringe another’s copyright, we recommend that you first discuss this issue with legal counsel.

Please note that Herschend enforces a policy that provides for the termination of users who are repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances. Please contact Herschend’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement at the following address:
