We may update this Terms of Use at any time. Your use of the Platforms signifies your consent to be legally bound by both these Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to either the Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, please refrain from using the Platforms.

No one under thirteen (13) years of age may provide any personal information. Ascent Network does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13).

If you are under thirteen (13) years of age, please do not send any information about yourself to us, or to anyone else through this Site.

In order to use certain features of the Platforms, you may need to create an account. If the Platforms require you to create a user account, you are only to use your user account and not the user account of another without their permission.

You agree that you shall immediately notify Ascent Network of any unauthorized use of your username, password, or any other breach of security whatsoever. In order to safeguard your security, the security of the Platforms, and the user experience of others, you agree to log out of your account at the end of each session on the Platforms. Please remember to exercise particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.

As you browse the Platforms, you may be asked to provide certain registration details or other information. It is a condition of your use of the Platforms that all the information you provide on the Platforms is correct, current, and complete.

We reserve the right to disable any user identification code, username, or password, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have failed to comply with any provision of the Terms of Use, Privacy Policy, or any other applicable agreement, law, or regulation.

From time to time, we may offer mobile applications for public consumption and/or download (the “Apps”). Please note, Apple, Inc. and Google, Inc. or any other third party provider for the Apps may have separate Terms of Use, which must be followed. You should always read and understand the policies of any third party provider before making any purchase or downloading any of the Apps.

Unless otherwise noted, all content on the Platforms, including any names, logos, trademarks, service marks, brand identifiers, copyrights, trade dress, and/or other intellectual property appearing on the Platforms, including the organization, compilation, look and feel, illustrations, graphics, artworks, videos, music, software, and other works of the Platforms (the “Works”) are owned by Ascent Network, or used with permission of the third party (the “Owners”), and are protected under copyright, trademark, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights laws. All right, title, and interest to the Works remain with Ascent Network and/or the Owners. Nothing herein shall be interpreted to grant you a license to use any of the Works without Ascent Network and/or the Owners permission. You may not modify, copy, distribute, republish or upload any of the material on the Platforms in any way unless you obtain the prior written consent of Ascent Network.

Any and all content from third parties is for informational purposes only and Ascent Network does not verify the accuracy or truthfulness of any material. Ascent Network does not independently verify the accuracy or truthfulness with respect to the operation of any of the locations identified in the Platforms, including the hours of operation, availability of certain products/services, or otherwise.

Any and all content posted by you to the Platforms, to Ascent Network’s social media pages, mobile application and mobile store pages, or any other area to which you may have access to or the ability to post content, must comply with the these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, any other agreement controlling your relationship with Ascent Network, and any applicable federal, local, or state laws and regulations.

You hereby grant an irrevocable, fully prepaid, perpetual license to Ascent Network to use anything posted by you to the Platforms.

If there is any inaccurate information in your credit report, you may contact the credit bureau directly. The credit bureau must then reinvestigate and modify or remove inaccurate or incomplete information.  However, neither you nor any credit repair company or credit repair organization has the right to have accurate, current, and verifiable information removed from your credit report. The credit bureau must remove inaccurate, negative information from your report only if it is over seven (7) years old. Bankruptcy information can be reported for ten (10) years.

A copy of your credit report can be obtained from a credit bureau where a reasonable fee for the copy may be charged. However, there is no fee if you have been denied for credit, employment, insurance, or a rental dwelling because of information in your credit report within the preceding sixty (60) days. The credit bureau must provide someone to help you interpret the information in your credit file. You are entitled to receive a free copy of your credit report if you have unemployed and intend to apply for employment in the next sixty (60) days, if you are a recipient of public welfare assistance, or if you have reason to believe that there is inaccurate information in your credit report due to fraud.

The foregoing shall apply even if Ascent Network was advised of the possibility of such damages. If you become dissatisfied in any way with the Platforms, the Terms of Use, or the Privacy Policy, your sole and exclusive remedy is to stop your use of the Platforms and its services. You hereby waive any and all claims against Ascent Network, its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, representatives, and licensors arising out of your use of the Platforms.

The Platforms would not be provided without such limitations and you agree that the limitations and exclusions of liability, disclaimers, and exclusive remedies herein will survive even if found to have failed their essential purpose.

Ascent Network’s failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms of Use shall not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right.

We may revise these Terms of Use from time to time. Your use of the Platforms following any revised Terms of Use shall be deemed an acceptance of the revised policy. We recommend you review these Terms of Use from time to time to stay updated. We will make a commercially reasonable effort to obtain your consent before implementing revisions which materially affect the disclosure or use of your Personal Information.
