Password Restricted Areas of the Service.

When a visitor to the Service registers to become a member ("Member"), he or she will select an available user name ("Membership Name") and a corresponding user password ("Membership Password") to create a unique, personal account (a "Membership Account"). The Member shall also be required to specify whether he or she is registering as an individual or on behalf of a company or entity (and, if so, the name of the company or entity). You will need a Membership Password to login to the Service and use certain functions and areas within the Service ("Restricted Areas"). If you are an authorized Member of the Restricted Areas, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and agree to notify MarkTend if your password is lost, stolen, or disclosed to an unauthorized third party, or otherwise may have been compromised. You are responsible for activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify MarkTend of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security in relation to the Service known to you. You will not use other members' contact information gathered from Restricted Areas of the Service for commercial purposes and agree not to provide any other Member's contact information to any third party that is not a Member of MarkTend.

Subscription Pricing and Changes.

When a Member of the Services chooses to become a subscriber ("Subscriber"), he or she will choose a subscription type and enter additional data, including payment information within their Membership Account. With respect to Software or Services provided on a subscription basis, Subscriber agrees that MarkTend may from time to time either increase or decrease the fee(s) for all or any portion thereof, and that any such adjustment, when made by MarkTend, shall apply effective as of the expiration of the then-current subscription term. If Subscriber objects to any fee change, Subscriber's sole remedy shall be to elect not to renew the Software or Service at the expiration of the then-current subscription term. Each subscription term begins on the day MarkTend receives full payment of the applicable fees from Subscriber and expires either 30 days or 1 year later, depending on the subscription type selected in the applicable order. The subscription term will automatically renew for additional periods unless Subscriber elects not to renew on or before the expiration date. If Subscriber purchases additional subscription Software or Services, the subscription term for such additional Software or Services will be coterminous with the preexisting subscription term. The fee for any additional subscriptions purchased in the middle of a billing month will be charged in full for that billing month. Reductions will be effective at the end of the then-current term. No refunds or credit adjustments will be given.

Payment method; Credit Card Authorization.

You must provide MarkTend with valid credit card or approved purchase order information. MarkTend may require, and Subscriber agrees that such fees shall be paid by means of credit card payments or other forms of electronic funds transfers, and to implement measures enabling MarkTend to initiate such electronic funds transfers. If you are paying by credit card, only valid credit cards acceptable to MarkTend may be used by you to make payment, and all authorized refunds will be credited to the same card. Until all amounts due have been paid in full, you hereby authorize MarkTend to charge any credit card provided by you all amounts due under the Agreement from time to time, including without limitation, ongoing Subscription and installment and other payments, taxes, and additional fees. If the credit card cannot be verified, is invalid, is declined, or is not otherwise acceptable, the Software and Services may be terminated, deferred, suspended, or cancelled by MarkTend without notice at MarkTend's discretion and MarkTend may generate invoices for payment. You agree to update your credit card information to keep it current at all times and that MarkTend may submit charges for processing even if the card appears to have expired. A credit card authorization form must be completed for all payments made by credit card. All prices are given and must be paid in the currency listed. All payment obligations are non-cancelable and all amounts paid are nonrefundable. Unless otherwise provided by law or in connection with any particular service offer, all charges are non-refundable.

Taxes.

MarkTend's fees are exclusive of all taxes, fees, levies, duties or similar charges arising out of or relating to the Agreement, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, fees, levies, duties or similar fees, excluding only taxes based solely on MarkTend's income.

Conversion of Trial Period Offers.

You may have received a complimentary trial Subscription to the Software or Service or some other trial period offer. Unless we notify you otherwise, if you are participating in any trial period offer, your trial period will expire at the end of the trial term and access to the Subscription-based Software or Service will be suspended. You will then be prompted to either become a Subscriber or be limited to the Member version of the Software or Services.

Termination.

MarkTend may, at any time, terminate this Agreement in its sole discretion, including, without limitation, for breach by you of any of your representations, warranties or obligations under this Agreement, or for inactivity as it relates to the Service for a period of 90 days.

Trademark Monitoring


USPTO

Monitoring

$2.49

Per Trademark

MarkTend retrieves new USPTO filings and publications that are similar to the monitored trademark. Our generic search uses the COMB search to produce as many hits as possible. We also allow you to construct your own search based on your knowledge of what classes need more protection than others. Create your own search query that's run each week as new trademarks go into the opposition period. This cuts down on the time your firm or company has to spend doing the USPTO searches manually (a job that no one seems to want to do, we like the dirty work!).


Track and monitor search engine activity on Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Search engine marketing can be the single largest source of trademark infringement. Our monitoring system automatically detects possible infringement and notifies you of the results (again, we love the dirty work). This allows you to create a historic document to show the infringing uses over time, all the time, no need to remember to do it every week.


Domain Name

Monitoring

$2.49

Per Trademark

Watch domain names as easy as trademarks. We automatically search domain names to make sure that others do not trade on the goodwill your clients worked so hard to build. In today's age of domain name squatting and typo redirects, we offer a total monitoring solution


All 3 Types

Monitoring

$4.99

Per Trademark

Get all three forms of trademark monitoring at a discounted price of $4.99. This will empower your company to be aware of all possible infringing cases upon your trademark portfolio. Create an opportunity for your company and clients to boost your bottom line in TTAB, Cease and Desist, and UDRP revenue.
