ClickVote.com is a website connecting Voters to the websites of Candidates running for Congress. ClickVote.com is for your personal, non-commercial use. However, because ClickVote.com is still in its beta-test development stage, we apologize for any errors and omissions that we may have made in implementing our services, including but not limited to posting of incorrect Candidate names, incorrect spelling, incorrect pictures and incorrect links to third-party websites not owned by or relevant to a Candidate. If any Voters or Candidate representatives, or other parties affected by such errors, find errors in our listings, please contact us at info@clickvote.com to correct such errors or omissions.


In order to become a ClickVote.com user, you must read and accept all of the terms and conditions of this agreement and the Privacy Policy. In the event of any inconsistency between the ClickVote.com Privacy Policy and this User Agreement, the User Agreement shall control. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement, you may not use nor access our services.
We reserve the right to modify this Agreement at any time, and without prior notice, by posting amended terms on this website. Your continued use of the ClickVote.com service indicates your acceptance of the amended User Agreement.




Description of Service

ClickVote.com is an online service that enables users to more easily identify which voting district they live in, who currently represents them in Congress and which Candidates are currently running for election to Congress -- and then connects the user to those Candidates’ Election Campaign Websites to become more informed about the Candidates; who shares your values and principles, and are worthy of your vote. ClickVote connects Voters to a greater community of concerned citizens online. ClickVote links to and utilizes the database services of GovTrack.us, whose terms of service users must also follow (see: www.govtrack.us/developers/license)

Eligibility

Membership in the Service is void where prohibited. If your use of the Services is prohibited by applicable laws, then you aren't authorized to use the Services. We can't and won't be responsible for your using the Services in a way that breaks the law. The Services are provided by a U.S. company. We may suspend or terminate services if you do not follow our Terms, and customers removed by ClickVote may not be allowed any future access to the Services.



This Site is intended solely for Users who are thirteen (13) years of age or older, and any registration by, use of or access to the Site by anyone under 13 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of these Terms of Use. By using the Service or the Site, you represent and warrant that you are 13 or older and that you agree to abide by all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. The Company may terminate your membership, delete your profile and any content or information that you have posted on the Site and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Service or the Site (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Service or the Site) for any reason, at any time in its sole discretion, with or without notice, including without limitation if it believes that you are under 13.



Please note that we do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at info@clickvote.com.



Registration Data & Account Security

In order to use certain of our Services, you may be required to sign up for an account, and to select a password and user name ("User ID").  You promise to provide us with accurate, complete, and updated registration information about yourself.  You may not select as your User ID a name that you don't have the right to use, or another person's name with the intent to impersonate that person. You may not transfer your account to anyone else without our prior written permission. You will not share your account or password with anyone, and you must protect the security of your account and your password. You're responsible for any activity associated with your account. The Services are intended for adults, but children 13 or older may use the Services with permission from a parent or guardian, provided that your parents have agreed to these Terms on your behalf.



In consideration of your use of the Site, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about you as may be prompted by any registration forms on the Site ("Registration Data"); (b) maintain the security of your password and identification; (c) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, and any other information you provide to Company, to keep it accurate, current and complete; and (d) be fully responsible for all use of your account and for any actions that take place using your account.



Help Us / Contribute / Donations

ClickVote has been privately funded by its creators, and now that the beta-test site is up and running, visitors and users of the ClickVote site are encouraged to contribute money to help pay ClickVote’s costs to maintain its database up-to-date for every national election. ClickVote needs additional funding in order to increase its database of Candidates from Congressional and Senatorial elections to state and local elections for Governor, Attorney General, Mayor and other elected officers. Money donated or contributed by users/visitors will solely be used to pay the labor, consulting and vendor services costs to conduct the necessary election contest research, program connections to new Candidates and operate the ClickVote website and search engine linked to Candidates of upcoming local, state and federal Elections, provided that ClickVote is able to secure the necessary financing to pay for such additional voter services.

For those donors, contributors, backers and supporters who contribute funds to expansion of ClickVote’s election database, ClickVote team members will use their best efforts to provide their backers with a high standard of effort, honest communication, disclosure and dedication to build, market and promote the ClickVote service to voting-age Americans.

At the same time, ClickVote’s donors, contributors, backers and supporters must understand that their funds are being used to build a new national voter empowerment service that will always need to be updated for the next election and there may be changes or delays or other event that prevents the ClickVote team from being able to finish the project as promised.

If ClickVote is unable to complete its election updates and fulfill rewards donors in the form of the Congressional District that they live in being updated for ClickVote access -- they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. To right this, ClickVote will make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to the best possible conclusion for its backers/donors/contributors. ClickVote will have remedied the situation and met their obligations to backers/donors/contributors if ClickVote:

By visiting or using the Site and/or the Service, you agree that the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and the Company or any of our affiliates. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration (as set forth below), you agree not to commence or prosecute any action in connection therewith other than in the state and federal courts of California, and you hereby consent to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to, venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of California. You cannot reassign the duty to abide by these Terms or your rights hereunder, but ClickVote may reassign these Terms in order to continue to provide the Services.



Arbitration

YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE FORUM AND REMEDY FOR ANY AND ALL DISPUTES AND CLAIMS RELATING IN ANY WAY TO OR ARISING OUT OF THESE SITE TERMS, THE SITE AND/OR THE SERVICE (INCLUDING YOUR VISIT TO OR USE OF THE SITE AND/OR THE SERVICE) SHALL BE FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION, except that, to the extent that either of us has in any manner infringed upon or violated or threatened to infringe upon or violate the other party's patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret rights, such other party may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA") under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and, in the case of consumer disputes, the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes ( the "AAA Consumer Rules") (collectively the "AAA Rules"). The allocation of costs and fees for such arbitration shall be determined in accordance with such AAA Rules and shall be subject to the limitations provided for in the AAA Consumer Rules (for consumer disputes). For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) under these Terms where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000.00, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. The party electing such arbitration shall initiate the arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, as selected by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.


To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, NO ARBITRATION OR CLAIM UNDER THESE TERMS OF USE SHALL BE JOINED TO ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR CLAIM, INCLUDING ANY ARBITRATION OR CLAIM INVOLVING ANY OTHER CURRENT OR FORMER USER OF THE SERVICE, AND NO CLASS ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS SHALL BE PERMITTED. In no event shall any claim, action or proceeding by you related in any way to the Site and/or the Service (including your visit to or use of the Site and/or the Service) be instituted more than three (3) year after the cause of action arose.



Indemnity

You agree to indemnify and hold the Company, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their directors, officers, agents, contractors, partners and employees, harmless from and against any loss, liability, claim, demand, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, arising out of or in connection with any User Content, any Third Party Content you post or share on or through the Service, your use of the Service or the Site, your conduct in connection with the Service or the Site or with other Users of the Service or the Site, or any violation of this Agreement or of any law or the rights of any third party.



Submissions

You acknowledge and agree that any questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, feedback or other information about the Site or the Service ("Submissions"), provided by you to Company are non-confidential and shall become the sole property of Company. Company shall own exclusive rights, including all intellectual property rights, and shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of these Submissions for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation to you.



Termination of Services

You're free to terminate your Services account at any time, by shutting down your account yourself or contacting us at help@nationbuilder.com; please refer to our Privacy Policy, as well as any applicable Additional Terms, to understand how we treat information you provide to us after you have stopped using our Services.


Unless you have a separate agreement with ClickVote specifying otherwise, ClickVote is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms. ClickVote has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms.



Other

These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and Company regarding the use of the Site and/or the Service, superseding any prior agreements between you and Company relating to your use of the Site or the Service. The failure of Company to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision in that or any other instance. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect. If any provision of these Site Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any warranty disclaimers, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of these Terms and you do not have any authority of any kind to bind ClickVote in any respect whatsoever. You and ClickVote agree there are no third party beneficiaries intended under these Terms. No waiver of any provision of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and ClickVote's failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
