Your License to eSprouting.com
At any time you may modify or remove from the service any content consisting of photos, graphics, audio or video that you have submitted or made available for inclusion on or through the Service (but not, for clarity, any Content solely in the form of text that you have posted to the public areas of the site). Your removal of such Content from the Service will terminate our license to such Content. But if prior to such removal or modification, eSprouting.com has distributed, or developed specific plans to distribute, any electronic, printed, or other materials containing such Content (e.g., in advertising, promotion or otherwise), then eSprouting.com and its licensees have a limited right to continue to distribute those materials. You may terminate this limited license by sending us written notice to stop distributing the materials, in which event we will stop distributing the materials within 30 days. Your notice must be sent through our "Contact Us" web page located at eSprouting.com/contact-us/ , have a subject heading of "REMOVE CONTENT," and include your telephone number and email address. In addition, the notice must clearly identify the Content at issue and contain statements that you own or have an exclusive right to the Content and that all the information in the notice is true and correct. The 30 day period for eSprouting.com to stop distributing your Content begins only once eSprouting.com has received a notice complying with the requirements of this Section.
When you submit ideas, suggestions, documents, or proposals (collectively, "Submissions") to eSprouting.com through our "Contact Us" web page located at eSprouting.com/contact-us/ , you represent, warrant, and agree that: (i) your Submissions do not include confidential or proprietary information; (ii) if we so choose, eSprouting.com may use and disclose your Submissions in any way; and (iii) eSprouting.com has no obligation to pay or reimburse you for your Submissions or our use of your Submissions.

You must be at least 18 years old to purchase a subscription to the Subscription Program, which is intended for adults age 18 and over. If you are a parent or guardian purchasing a subscription to the Subscription Program for use by your 13 to 17-year-old child (together, and as applicable, "you"), you acknowledge that the Content may not be appropriate for all age groups, and agree to supervise and assume responsibility for all such use by your child. If we accept you in the Subscription Program, you may privately view the Content made available to you through the Service on your device for your own personal non-commercial purposes. You may not copy, store, modify, download, distribute or create derivative works from the Content. Any login credentials made available to you, or utilized by you, in connection with the Subscription Program must be kept confidential, and may not be shared, sold or otherwise distributed to any other person or entity.
Your participation in the Subscription Program will commence on the day of your successful registration. If you register pursuant to one of our free trial offers (each such offer, part of the Service), you may cancel at any time without charge during the free trial period described in such offer ("Free Trial Period") by following the instructions applicable to the Subscription Program displayed via the Service. If you have not submitted a valid cancellation during such Free Trial Period, we will begin to charge your credit card or alternate payment method accepted by us ("Your Payment Method") the subscription rate described in the Service upon expiration of the Free Trial Period. If you do not register pursuant to one of our free trial offers, we will begin to charge Your Payment Method the subscription rate described in the Service upon your successful registration. The "Initial Term" is the initial term applicable to your subscription described in the Service, following expiration of any Free Trial Period. You may not participate in more than one Free Trial Period.
When you purchase a subscription to the Subscription Program, you initially will be charged the rate applicable at the time of purchase, which rate will be displayed via the Service. If we subsequently increase the rate, we will notify you via the contact information you provided through the Service. You are responsible for ensuring via the Service that your billing and contact information is accurate and up-to-date. The increased rate will apply to the next payment due from you after the notice, provided that you have been given at least 10 days prior notice before the charge is made. If you are given less than 10 days prior notice, the rate increase will not apply until the payment after the next payment is due. We may also require you to follow additional rules, guidelines or other conditions in order to participate in certain promotions or activities available through the Subscription Program, to obtain certain premium Content, or for other reasons. These additional terms will be made available through the Service and are part of these Subscription Program Terms, and you agree to comply with them when you participate in those promotions, or otherwise engage in activities governed by such additional terms. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("Credits"). The amount and form of such Credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion.
Your subscription to the Subscription Program will continue until terminated by you or us. YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED FOLLOWING THE INITIAL TERM FOR ROLLING PERIODS EQUIVALENT TO THE INITIAL TERM (each such period, a "RENEWAL TERM"), AND YOUR PAYMENT METHOD WILL BE CHARGED THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION RATE IN ADVANCE, ON THE FIRST DAY OF EACH ROLLING RENEWAL TERM FOLLOWING EXPIRATION OF THE INITIAL TERM. IF YOU DO NOT DESIRE TO HAVE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED, YOU MUST TERMINATE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AS SET FORTH IN SECTION E BELOW.
You may terminate your subscription for any reason by following the instructions applicable to the Subscription Program displayed via the Service; however, there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. Your valid termination notice will take effect at the end of the current rolling Renewal Term in which such notice was provided to us ("Termination Effective Date")," provided you follow the Service instructions regarding termination. For clarity, correspondence with our customer support team will not constitute a valid termination notice from you. We may, in our sole discretion, terminate, suspend or modify the Subscription Program or any feature thereof, or your access thereto, at any time, with or without notice, and without refunds, credits or reimbursements.
WE ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR AND MAKE NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION AS TO: (i) THE ACCURACY, CURRENCY, COMPLETENESS, RELIABILITY, OR USEFULNESS OF THE SUBSCRIPTION PROGRAM, SERVICE OR CONTENT (INCLUDING DESCRIPTIONS THEREOF) DISTRIBUTED OR MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH OR OUTSIDE THE SERVICE; OR (ii) ANY RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM USE OF THE SUBSCRIPTION PROGRAM, SERVICE OR CONTENT.

You understand that it is your responsibility to judge your physical and mental capabilities for such activities. It is your responsibility to ensure that, by participating in the Subscription Program, you will observe and not exceed any mental or physical conditions and/or limitations you have (including dietary restrictions or requirements).
