Summary of
DATES! features

Here are the terms of service with which you'll be asked to agree to start using DATES!


Terms of Service

NOTE: The pronouns "I" and "me" as used below and on related web pages refer to the responsible contracting party entering this agreement. If that party is an organization or business entity, then "I" and "me" refer to the overall organization comprising its members and employees. These terms are the version of November 5, 2001.

Price. I understand that the price for DATES! services ranges from $Plan3_price/month to $Plan1_price/month, depending on the service plan I select when I fill out the application form. Under all plans, the first four weeks of service are free of charge provided that the account information I supply is true and valid. Here are the details on service plans: 

Plan 1
$Plan1_price/month
Designed for organizations with at least ten to twenty events scheduled in most months, with frequent schedule updates.
All DATES! features will be available to users of my calendar. In particular, my users will be able to select the range of dates they want to see; to change from monthly calendar to table or list views and back-and-forth; to search for events by name and date; to send an email request directly from any monthly view calendar display to a designated event scheduler asking to have an event added to the calendar; and to create monthly calendars designed specifically for printing. If new features are added to the DATES! software, my calendar users will have full access to them. I will be able to determine, by the format of the URL links that I put on my site, the type of display view and the date ranges that my calendar users will initially see (and can then change as they like). I will be able to create as many of these different URLs on my site as I want. I will also be able to obtain at any time a machine-readable copy of the event data that I have entered.   Show me what this looks like.
 
Plan 2
$Plan2_price/month
Designed for organizations with fewer than ten or so events per month.
I will be able to determine, by the format of the URL links that I put on my site, the type of display view and the date ranges that my DATES! calendar users will see. I will be able to create as many of these different URLs on my site as I want. Users of my DATES! calendar will be able to click to move forward or backward one month at a time on monthly view calendars, but they will not have the option to change the different calendar display views, or to select the range of months or dates from a drop-down list, or to use the DATES! search feature to search for events, or to create monthly calendars designed specifically for printing. I will also be able to obtain at any time a machine-readable copy of the event data that I have entered. Show me what this looks like
 
Plan 3
$Plan3_price/month
Designed for individual artists, craftspeople, bands, etc.
Users of my DATES! calendar will see "upcoming events" in a "list view" only. "Upcoming" means events that take place on the current day or in the future up to the farthest date forward that DATES! allows (SYSTEMDEFAULTMAXYEARSINTOTHEFUTURE calendar years). I will be able to choose, by the format of the URL links that I put on my site, either the "1-Column" or  "2-Column" list views for my users, but not any other views. My calendar users will not have the option to change anything or to search for events or create calendars specifically designed for printing. Show me what this looks like.
 

Payment. My payment will be by credit card. I understand that charges for DATES! service will accrue monthly, but I will have the option to have my credit card account billed either monthly or quarterly. Billing will be in advance of services rendered, so I will pay for the upcoming period at the beginning of that period.  

Cancellation. I can cancel service at any time. Hardy Systems can cancel my service with 30 days' notice or in the event of a breach of the terms of this agreement. In the event of cancellation, my charges will stop within two business days from the date that notice of cancellation is received by email. A credit for the remaining unused billing period will be applied to my credit card. 

Use. I will use all and only the DATES! software and features for which I've contracted for the purposes for which they were designed. I will not try, or indicate to others to try, to damage or render less than fully functional the software and hardware systems used by or associated with DATES! I will not download or copy, or indicate to others to download or copy, any of the DATES! software other than whatever is necessary, and only to the extent necessary, to enable me to operate DATES! normally.  

Availability guarantee. I understand that Hardy Systems intends for DATES! to be available continuously, 24 hours a day, every day, though I know that the Internet is not under the control of Hardy Systems and that no computer and no web site can provide literally 100% availability. I accept and agree that Hardy Systems will try to come as close to that level as it reasonably can by running the DATES! software on a professional web hosting service that has experienced at least a 99% up-time and by undertaking necessary maintenance with the least disruption possible.

Limitation of liability. I agree to hold harmless Hardy Systems and its principles, agents, and assigns, for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, resulting from use or the inability to use the DATES! service (whether because of interruption, suspension or termination of the service) or for cost of procurement of substitute goods and services or resulting from any goods or services purchased or obtained or data received or transactions entered into through the DATES! service or resulting from unauthorized access to or alteration of my transmissions or data, or from any breaches of security relating to the servers used by the service, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, use, data or other intangibles, even if Hardy Systems has been advised of the possibility of such damages. (Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages so some of the above limitations may not apply to me.)

These terms, applicable law. This agreement is governed by the laws of Virginia without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. 

I understand that from time to time Hardy Systems may need to amend these terms, with notice of the amendments sent by email to the contact individual I specify. I agree to be bound by such amendments.


DATES! It just works!
