THE FOLLOWING DESCRIBES THE TERMS ON WHICH THE AMATEUR RADIO LIGHTHOUSE SOCIETY OFFERS YOU ACCESS TO OUR SERVICES.
Welcome to the User Agreement for the Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society (ARLHS, LLC). The Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society, hereafter referred to as the “Society” or “ARLHS,” presents this Agreement that describes the terms and conditions applicable to your use of our services available under the domain and sub-domains of http://arlhs.com. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, do not use or access these services.
Refer any questions concerning membership in the ARLHS to the Society via E-Mail or by writing to ARLHS, LLC – 7317 Ridgedale Drive, Warrenton, VA 20186 USA.
You must read, agree with and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this User Agreement, which include those terms and conditions expressly set out below and those incorporated by reference, before you may become a member of ARLHS. We strongly recommend that, as you read this User Agreement, you also access and read the information contained in the other pages referred to in this document, as they may contain further terms and conditions that apply to you as an ARLHS member.
We may amend this Agreement at any time without notice.
ARLHS services are available only to individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, ARLHS services are not available to minors or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended ARLHS members. If you are a minor, you may use ARLHS services only with the consent of your parents or guardians. If you do not qualify, please do not use ARLHS services. ARLHS member numbers and lightbeacon numbers belong to the ARLHS and are used by members with ARLHS’ revocable consent. Neither ARLHS membership nor ARLHS member numbers are transferrable to any party, temporarily or otherwise.
Fees and Services
ARLHS annual membership currently costs $15.00. ARLHS may in its sole discretion change some or all of ARLHS services at any time. In the event ARLHS introduces a new service, fees, if any, for that service are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with ARLHS membership, etc.
ARLHS uses many techniques to identify its users when they register through the ARLHS web site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, ARLHS cannot and does not confirm each user’s purported identity. The ARLHS membership of any individual who has submitted or assisted in the submission to ARLHS of inaccurate information will be subject to revocation by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion.
By submitting application information for ARLHS membership, you release ARLHS, LLC, ARLHS, its officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, related entities, heirs and assigns from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with any dispute from the beginning of time forward. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code § 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
ARLHS does not control the information provided by other users that may be available through links on the ARLHS web site. You may find the content of other web sites offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe Internet use when using any site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. Additionally, there may also be risks dealing with international trade and foreign nationals.
Without limiting any other remedies, ARLHS may suspend or terminate your membership if ARLHS suspects that you (by conviction, settlement, insurance or escrow investigation, or otherwise) have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the ARLHS site.
