(a) If you purchase a monthly or annual support plan (a “Support Plan”), you will be charged the support fee, plus any applicable taxes, plus set-up fee (if applicable) and other charges (“Support Fee”), at the beginning of your Support Plan (all EggHead IT Support Plans are offered in 12, 24, or 36 month terms only) and each support period (e.g., monthly or annually, as specified when you purchase such Support Plan) thereafter. Support Plans and Support Fees are described in more detail at https://www.eggheadit.com/plans, and may be updated from time to time without notice (except that the monthly fee for any “Annual Plan, Paid Monthly” (if such option is chosen, will remain locked in for the first year of such Support Plan).
(b) Support Plans become active as soon as your initial payment is processed. If you choose to pay Annually, the “Annual Plan, Prepaid” option, the entire applicable annual Support Fee plus applicable taxes will be charged at the initial payment. If you choose to pay Monthly, the “Annual Plan, Paid Monthly” option, the applicable first month’s Support Fee plus set-up fee will be charged at the initial payment, and thereafter the monthly Support Fee plus applicable taxes will be charged each month for the duration of the applicable year for that annual Support Plan.
(c) Upon the expiration of this term, if no notice is given to terminate or to not renew this Support Plan, your Support Plan will automatically renew for an additional 12 months and continue to do so until either party gives notice to not-renew the Support Plan (e.g. at the end of the one-year period for an annual Support Plan). Renewal rates are subject to change, but you will be notified of any change in your rate and be provided with the option to cancel in accordance with these Terms. Plan auto-renewal may be disabled at any time (but must be done on or prior to the last business day before the auto-renewal is scheduled to take effect in order to avoid being charged for such renewed term), however the plan will remain active for the remainder of the annual plan period and you will be responsible for the applicable charges for the remaining months of the annual plan period. You may turn off the auto-renewal option by contacting EggHead IT support at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you elect not to renew, your right to use the Sites under the Support Plan will continue until the end of your then current support period and will then terminate without further charges.
(d) Payment failures will result in immediate deactivation of the applicable Support Plan(s). EggHead IT Services will not be available to Users with a deactivated plan due to payment failure. Any outstanding payments will need to be made in order to reactivate the applicable Support Plan and bring your account current.
16.5. Gift Certificates. EggHead IT may offer gift certificates for purchase (“Gift Certificates”). Gift Certificates are redeemable only as payment for a Booking or a Support Plan. Gift Certificates have no cash value and are not redeemable for cash unless otherwise required by law. Gift Certificates must be presented (or the applicable identification number entered) at the time of payment and any available balance will be applied to your purchase. Gift Certificates do not expire and there are no inactivity, dormancy or service fees associated with Gift Certificates. You agree that you will comply with all Gift Certificate terms and conditions. Gift Certificates are not replaceable if lost or stolen. Gift Certificates cannot be used for previous purchases, credits, or the purchase of Gift Certificates, and cannot be used to make a payment towards third party items. We reserve the right to limit quantities of Gift Certificates purchased by any person or entity and to cancel a Gift Certificate if we believe that the Gift Certificate was obtained through fraudulent or unauthorized means. No credit card, credit line, overdraft protection, or deposit account is associated with your Gift Certificate. Unused Gift Certificate balances are not transferable, and you may not sell a Gift Certificate or otherwise barter for its exchange although you may give a Gift Certificate to someone else as a gift. A Gift Certificate is void if copied, altered, transferred, purchased or sold. Purchases of Gift Certificates are final and not refundable. We reserve the right to correct the balance of a Gift Certificate if we believe that a billing error has occurred, and we disclaim all liability for any such billing errors. Gift Certificates and their use are subject to these Terms and use of a Gift Certificate constitutes acceptance thereof. Applicable terms and conditions are subject to change without notice. If the laws pertaining to a Gift Certificate require additional or different terms and conditions, then such terms and conditions shall apply. For questions or additional information, contact us at email@example.com. In the event you do not use your Gift Certificate for a certain period of time, we may be required to turn over the remaining Gift Certificate balance to a state under such state’s unclaimed or abandoned property law. Although your Gift Certificate does not expire, if we are obligated to turn over the remaining balance of your Gift Certificate under a state’s unclaimed property law, by operation of law we will be released from any further liability or obligation with respect to your Gift Certificate and you may be required to contact the state’s unclaimed property administrator to attempt to recover your unused Gift Certificate balance. To protect your right to continue to use your remaining Gift Certificate balance, we will make reasonable efforts to exempt your Gift Certificate from state unclaimed property laws.

- LIMITATION ON LIABILITY
TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EGGHEAD IT AND THE OTHER EGGHEAD IT PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU UNDER ANY CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, USE, DATA OR GOODWILL, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH ACCESS TO OR USE OF THE SITE, EVEN IF EGGHEAD IT OR THE OTHER EGGHEAD IT PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH LOSSES OR DAMAGES. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO CASE SHALL THE LIABILITY OF EGGHEAD IT OR ANY OF THE OTHER EGGHEAD IT PARTIES EXCEED, IN THE AGGREGATE, THE GREATER OF FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500) OR THE FEES ACTUALLY PAID BY CUSTOMER YOU FOR THE SERVICES.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS INTENDED TO APPLY WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS HAVE BEEN BREACHED OR HAVE PROVEN INEFFECTIVE OR IF A REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR LIMITED LIABILITY OR EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, CONDITIONS OR REPRESENTATIONS SO NOT ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY APPLY TO YOU. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT THE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET FORTH HEREIN FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES HERETO, THAT THE PARTIES HAVE RELIED UPON SUCH DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, AND THAT ABSENT SUCH DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THESE TERMS WOULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold EggHead IT and the other EggHead IT Parties harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities damages and losses including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from or arising out of (a) your use of the Site; or (b) your breach of these Terms or any other policies that EggHead IT may issue for the Site from time to time. You further agree to cooperate as required by EggHead IT in the defense of any claim. EggHead IT reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you will not in any event settle any claim without the prior written consent of EggHead IT.
- Governing Law; Jurisdiction
These Terms are governed by California law, without regard to conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You and EggHead IT agree that, except as otherwise provided in Section 28 below, the state and federal courts located in Indio, California will have exclusive jurisdiction of all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Site and agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, EggHead IT shall be allowed to apply for equitable remedies (including injunctions) in any jurisdiction.
- Binding Arbitration
28.1. Arbitration Procedures. You and EggHead IT agree that, except as provided in Section 28.4 below, all disputes, controversies and claims related to these Terms or the Site (each a “Claim”) shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the terms set forth in these Terms. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Section 28 and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Section 28 will control and prevail.
Except as otherwise set forth in Section 28.4, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and EggHead IT will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, (a) you and EggHead IT may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (b) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.
28.2. Location. The arbitration will take place in Indio, California, unless the parties agree to video, phone or internet connection appearances.
28.3. LIMITATIONS. YOU AND EGGHEAD IT AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE CLAIM BETWEEN EGGHEAD IT AND YOU INDIVIDUALLY. YOU AND EGGHEAD IT AGREE THAT (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (B) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (C) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.
28.4. Exceptions to Arbitration. You and EggHead IT agree that the following Claims are not subject to the above provisions concerning negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Claim seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of EggHead IT’s intellectual property rights; (b) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for equitable relief. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.
28.5. Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS arbitration initiation fee. If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules.
28.6. Severability. You and EggHead IT agree that if any portion of this Section 28 is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section 28.4), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect. If Section 28.4 is found to be illegal or unenforceable then neither you nor EggHead IT will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of Section 28.4 found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within Indio, California, United States of America, and you and EggHead IT agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
29.1. No Partnership. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and EggHead IT as a result of these Terms or your use of the Site.
29.2. Assignment. EggHead IT may assign its rights under these Terms to any person or entity without your consent. The rights granted to you under these Terms may not be assigned without EggHead IT’s prior written consent, and any attempted unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void.
29.3. Severability. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then that portion shall be severed, and the remainder of these Terms shall be given full force and effect.
29.4. Attorneys’ Fees. In the event any litigation or arbitration is brought by either party in connection with these Terms, except as otherwise provided in Section 28.5, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party all the reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in the litigation.
29.5. No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall in no way be construed to be a present or future waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect our right to enforce the same provision at a later time. An express waiver by EggHead IT of any provision, condition or requirement of these Terms shall not be understood as a waiver of your obligation to comply with the same provision, condition or requirement at a later time.
29.6. Notices. All notices given by you or required under these Terms shall be in writing and sent to email@example.com.
29.7. Export Administration. You must comply with all export laws and regulations of the United States or any other country (“Export Controls”) and you shall not export, direct or transfer any portion of the Site, or any direct product thereof, to any destination, person or entity restricted or prohibited by the Export Controls.
29.8. Equitable Remedies. You acknowledge and agree that EggHead IT would be irreparably damaged if the terms of these Terms were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of these Terms, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.
29.9. Entire Agreement. This writing is intended by the parties as the final and binding expression of their Service Terms and agreement and is a complete and exclusive statement of the terms thereof and supersedes all prior negotiations, representations and agreements. If any provision of this Service Terms is held to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be more narrowly and equitably construed so that it becomes legal and enforceable, and the entire Service Terms shall not fail on account thereof, and the balance of the Service Terms shall continue in full force and effect.
