Use of the Bloomfire Content or materials on the Bloomfire Service for any purpose not expressly permitted by these Terms of Use is prohibited.

  13. Dependence on Subscription; Designated Users
  14. Your access to the Bloomfire Service may be dependent on your subscription to the Bloomfire Service or on the subscription of the Subscriber who pays certain fees to Bloomfire. As such, the services offered by Bloomfire depend on the terms of that subscription. If the Subscriber (including you, if applicable) ceases to pay the fees due to Bloomfire, Bloomfire may cease to provide you access to the Bloomfire Service and/or terminate your Membership Community. Similarly, if the terms of the subscription to the Bloomfire Service change, you may experience changes to the features or capacity of your account.

    Subscriptions must be paid for in advance unless agreed to otherwise in writing. Payments for subscriptions are non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for any time period where the Membership Community is not used or accessed or when any Member or prospective Member fails to use or access the Membership Community.

    The Bloomfire Service may be accessed by no more than the number of Members specified by the applicable subscription. Additional Members may be added during the applicable subscription term at the then-current list price determined by Bloomfire, prorated for the remainder of the subscription term in effect at the time the additional Members are added. The expiration date of the term of the user accounts for these added Members will be the same as the expiration date of the term of the pre-existing subscription. The Bloomfire Service is a designated user service. User accounts or IDs cannot be shared or used by more than one individual, even if the designated user is not accessing the Bloomfire Service at the same time as the other individual. Subscribers may permanently reassign accounts to new Members that are replacing former Members who no longer require use of the Bloomfire Service. If Bloomfire determines that you are not complying with the Terms of Use described in this paragraph, in addition to any other remedies, Bloomfire may immediately suspend or terminate the applicable user accounts and Membership Community subscription and/or invoice you for the fees attributable to the additional Member(s).

  15. Cancellation and Termination
  16. Membership Community

    Subscriber is solely responsible for properly canceling the Membership Community. Subscriber can cancel a Membership Community at any time by e-mailing cancel@bloomfire.com specifying the Membership Community that you want canceled and providing a brief explanation of why you are canceling. You may generate a backup of all of your User Content prior to canceling your Membership Community. In Bloomfire’s sole discretion, all of your User Content may be immediately deleted from the Bloomfire Service upon cancellation. This information may not be able to be recovered once the Membership Community is canceled. If you cancel the Membership Community and/or any Bloomfire Service before the end of your current paid-up subscription, your Membership Community will remain live until the end of the paid subscription unless you request such cancellation to be immediate. Once terminated, you will not be charged again. Bloomfire, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your Membership Community and refuse any and all current or future use of the Bloomfire Service, or any other Bloomfire service, for non-payment, failure to comply with these Terms of Use, government or court order, or any other reasonable reason at any time. Bloomfire may also terminate the Membership Community, without notice to Subscribers or Members, (i) if the Subscriber of the Membership Community fails to pay for the Bloomfire Service in accordance with the terms of the subscription or (ii) the Subscriber of the Membership Community has a free subscription for the Bloomfire Service and there has been no activity in the Membership Community in the preceding sixty (60) days. Any such termination of the Bloomfire Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of the Membership Community, including your access and all other Members’ access to the Membership Community, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all User Content in the Membership Community.

    Member’s User Account

    Member may terminate your user account by contacting the Subscriber and requesting that your user account and ID be revoked or canceled. Bloomfire is not responsible for and cannot effect any cancellations or revocations of a Member’s user account and ID. However, Bloomfire may suspend or terminate the Membership Community as specified in these Terms of Use and if such termination or suspension occurs, Member’s user account and ID would be canceled without notice to Member.
