Terms of Service

We highly appreciate all the laws of nature governing our universe in an absolutely orderly fashion. We simply cannot esteem time-limited and changing national legal systems at the same cosmic level. Yet, to ward off some legal pirates sailing in the world wide web we must publish our Terms of Service as follows:

 

The following sets forth the terms and conditions under which BirthTime Ltd. ("BirthTime" or "WE" or "OUR") offers you access to our services.

When using BirthTime's services, you ("MEMBER" or "YOU" or "YOUR") agree to the terms and conditions described herein ("TERMS OF SERVICE").

These terms of service may be amended by BirthTime at any time in our discretion by posting the amended terms on our website. If you became a member prior to the posting of amended terms on our website, the amended terms shall automatically be effective  30 days after they are initially posted on our site. You agree that your continued use of this website after such amendment shall signify your acceptance of such change. This agreement may not be otherwise amended except by a writing signed by both YOU and BirthTime.

1. DESCRIPTION OF BirthTime: BirthTime provides astrological content, reports, data, and telephone and e-mail consultations ("Content") via the World Wide Web (http://birthtime.info and http://birthtime.net), electronic mail, and telephone. Although portions of the Content may be viewed simply by visiting the BirthTime site (the "General Services"), in order to access the personalized astrological zone and/or receive additional Content and services (including telephone-based services) from BirthTime (the "Personalized Services"), You need to register as a member of BirthTime to receive certain Services. The General Services and the Personalized Services are referred to collectively in these Terms of Service as the "Services." In consideration for the Personalized Services, Member agrees to:

(1) provide certain current, complete, and accurate information about Member as prompted to do so by BirthTime and

(2) maintain and update this information as required to keep it current, complete and accurate. All information that We request and You provide on original sign-up, and all updates thereto, are referred to in these Terms of Service as "Registration Data."

2. MEMBER ELIGIBILITY: The Services are available only to individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Services are not permitted to be used by minors (which means, in most jurisdictions, those under the age of 18) or temporarily or indefinitely suspended BirthTime members. In addition, BirthTime does not permit use of the Services by residents (a) of any jurisdiction that may prohibit our Services or (b) of any country that are prohibited by law, regulation, treaty or administrative act from entering into trade relations with the United Kingdom or its citizens. Such countries may include, without limitation, Afghanistan, Burma, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Syria and Sudan. If you do not qualify, please do not use the Services.

3. MEMBER REGISTRATION DATA: Upon registration, including Your provision of Registration Data, You will choose or receive an BirthTime identification ("ID") and a password. You are entirely responsible if You do not maintain the confidentiality of Your BirthTime ID and password. You are responsible for all uses of Your account, whether or not actually or expressly authorized by you. You may change Your password by following instructions on the Website. You agree that Your account, ID, and password may not be transferred or sold to another party. You agree to immediately notify BirthTime of any unauthorized use of Your account or any other breach of security known to You.

4. OUR ACCESS TO YOUR ACCOUNT: In order to ensure that BirthTime is able to provide high quality services, respond to customer needs, and comply with laws, You hereby consent to BirthTime employees and agents being able to access Your account and records on a case-by-case basis to investigate complaints or other allegations or suspected abuse.

5. MODIFICATION TO SERVICES; BREACH; TERMINATION: BirthTime may modify or discontinue (in whole or in part) the Services or Your account with us, with or without notice, for any reason without liability to You, any other user, or any third party. Without limiting the foregoing, We reserve the right to terminate Your account immediately (a) if We are unable to verify or authenticate Your Registration Data or other information provided by You, (b) if We believe that Your actions may cause legal liability for You, BirthTime, or all or some of Our other users, or (c) if We believe You have (i) provided us with false or misleading Registration Data or other information, (ii) interfered with other users or the administration of the Services, or (iii) violated these Terms of Service or our Privacy Policy.

6. PRIVACY POLICY: Privacy is very important to us, and as such, Our Privacy Policy, as it may be updated from time to time, available on the Website, is incorporated into these Terms of Service by this reference.

13. EXTERNAL REFERENCES AND LINKS
In its ruling of 12 May 1998 the first-instance district court of Hamburg provides that in the event of installing a link, the home page owner can, should the need arise, also be held responsible for the content of the linked page. This can - according to the district court - only be prevented by explicitly distancing oneself from this content. We have placed links on different pages of this home page to other web pages. The following applies to all these links:
"Neither BirthTime nor its Internet editorial department nor the website owner, have any influence on the organisation and/or contents of any of the linked pages on this web page. BirthTime furthermore would like to stress the fact that it completely rejects any responsibility for the contents of all linked web pages to this home page and further does not necessarily share the same point of view as shown in these linked web pages."
This statement is declared valid for all links placed on our home page, as well as for any web site connected to this web page through Internet links and banners. These web site links are listed as a convenience to our visitors. If you use these links, we take no responsibility and give no guarantees, warranties or representations, implied or otherwise, for the content or accuracy of these third-party sites.

14. ARBITRATION; INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. Any dispute, controversy, or claim arising out of, relating to, or in connection with this Agreement shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the ADR Chambers International ("ADR"). The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator, selected in accordance with the rules of the ADR, and judgement on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party has the right to seek any interim or preliminary relief from a court of competent jurisdiction in UK in order to protect the rights of such party pending the completion of any arbitration here under, and both parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of UK and venue in London for any such proceeding. If either party files an action contrary to this provision, the other party may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to one thousand US dollars (US $1,000).

15. GENERAL PROVISIONS: These Terms of Service will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United Kingdom without giving effect to any choice of law principles that would require the application of the laws of a different country. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision or portion of these Terms of Service or Privacy Policy to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law, and the remainder of the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy, as applicable, will continue in full force and effect. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe, or describe the scope or extent of such section. Any waiver of any provision of the Terms of Service will be effective only if in writing and signed by BirthTime. These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter.
