Last updated July 8, 2017

This User/Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use govern your use of Consultingcase101 Website, The Consulting Forum and unless other terms and conditions expressly govern, any other electronic services from Consultingcase101 that may be made available from time to time (each, a “Service”).

By visiting Consultingcase101 website or consuming content on Consultingcase101 website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this User Agreement. Further by registering your account with Consultingcase101, you agree to be bound by the terms of this Subscriber Agreement. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of this Subscriber Agreement, you should not subscribe to the Service provided by Consultingcase101 and will not be able to proceed with the registration process for the respective Service and become a subscriber. To the extent you have access to, or are using, a Service without having completed our registration process, you are hereby notified that your continued use of a Service is subject to many of the terms and conditions of this Agreement as explained below.

1. Changes to User/Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use

We may change the terms of this Agreement at any time by posting revisions on this web page. We may notify you of the change in writing or electronically (including without limitation, by email or by posting a notice on the Service that the terms have been “updated” or similar words). Such changes will be effective upon posting. You can access the Subscriber Agreement and Terms of Use at any time by going to the Help or FAQ section of a Service. You signify that you agree to be bound by such changes by using a Service after changes are made to this Agreement. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

2. Privacy and Your Membership Account

Registration data and other information about you are subject to our Privacy Policy. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country where Consultingcase101 Team has operations, and by subscribing to a Service, you consent to the transfer of information outside of your country. If your access to a Service has been provided by or through a third party (for example, your education institution where you are a student or your school’s management consulting club in which you are a member) (each, a “Third Party”), the Third Party may have provided us with information about you to enable us to provide you with access to the Service and distinguish you from other subscribers (such as your email address or username).

If you access a Service using a username and password, you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of that username and password. Your membership account login information, including your username and password, is for your use only. You agree to never provide someone else with access to your username or password. You agree to never share your membership account login information with any third party. You agree to notify us promptly if you believe someone else may have access to your login username or password. If you fail to notify us promptly of any possible account breach, your membership account may be permanently de-activated or deleted, and you are solely responsible for any potential privacy infringement or financial loss.

3. Limitations on Use

a. Unless we state explicitly in writing otherwise, each membership account is for the subscriber’s personal use only. Only one individual may access a Service using the same login username or password, unless we agree otherwise. Sharing of account login information including login username and password with any third party is prohibited and may result in your account being permanently de-activated or canceled. All types of membership accounts are nontransferable. Resale of your membership account to any third party is prohibited and may result in your account being permanently de-activated or canceled. If you violate any part of this Agreement and your membership account is therefore de-activated or canceled, no subscription fee will be refunded.

b. The text, graphics, images, video, metadata, web design, content organization, compilation, look and feel, advertising and all other protectable intellectual property (the “Content”) available through the Services are our property or the property of our advertisers and licensors and are protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws. Unless you have our written consent, you may not sell, publish, distribute, retransmit or otherwise provide access to the Content received through the Services to anyone, including, if applicable, your fellow students or employees, with the following exceptions:

(i) You may occasionally distribute a copy of a post or an article, or a portion of a post or an article, from a Service in non-electronic form to a few individuals without charge, provided you include all copyright and other proprietary rights notices in the same form in which the notices appear in the Service, original source attribution, and the phrase “Used with permission from “Consultingcase101 Team”, as appropriate. Please consult our Customer Service if you need to distribute a case from a Service to a larger number of individuals, on a regular basis, or in any other manner not expressly permitted by this Agreement.

(ii) You may occasionally email a copy of a post or an article, or a portion of a post or an article from a Service to a few individuals, without charge. You are not permitted to use this service for the purpose of regularly providing other users with access to content from a Service. The foregoing does not apply to any sharing functionality we provide through the Service that expressly allows you to share articles or links to articles with others. In addition, you may not use such a functionality for data or text mining or email scraping.

c. You agree not to rearrange or modify the Content. You agree not to download, store and create an archive or complete copy of articles from the Service for any use. You agree not to create abstracts from, scrape or display our content for use on another website or service (other than headlines from our RSS Feed with active links back to the full article on the Service). You agree not to use scripts, web spiders, web bots, software applications, or any other similar computer programs, to download or copy the Content on a large scale or on a regular basis. You agree not to post any content from the Services (other than headlines from our RSS Feed with active links back to the full article on the Service) to weblogs, newsgroups, mail lists or electronic bulletin boards, without our written consent.

d. You agree not to use the Services for any unlawful purpose. We reserve the right to terminate or restrict your access to a Service if, in our opinion, your use of the Service may violate any laws, regulations or rulings, infringe upon another person’s rights or violate the terms of this Agreement. Also, we may refuse to grant you a username that impersonates someone else, is protected by trademark or other proprietary right law, or is vulgar or otherwise offensive.

4. Subscription Fees and Payments

You agree to pay the subscription fees and any other charges incurred in connection with your membership account username and password for a Service (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. If your subscription includes access to areas containing premium member-only content or services, your access to such areas may be subject to any additional fees, terms and conditions, which will be separately disclosed in such areas.

We will bill all member subscription charges to your PayPal account. Subscription fees will be billed at the beginning of your subscription or any renewal. In general, unless we state explicitly in writing otherwise, all membership fees and subscription charges are non-refundable. We understand that there might be extenuating circumstances, so if you believe that there are, please contact us and we will work with you to address your problem. Under certain rare exceptions, refunds may be granted on a case-by-case basis. Refund decisions are solely at our discretion and all decisions are final and binding. When exceptions are made, refunds may be only partial or limited, and no PayPal transaction fees will be refunded.

Every year we will review current economic environment and our website’s content growth and release an updated fee structure. We may change the membership fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance. If you believe someone has accessed a Service using your user name and password without your authorization, you must follow the procedures outlined in this agreement promptly.

Your membership subscription will not renew automatically. For 3-month, 6-month, 1-year, 2-year, 5-year membership subscriptions, we will send emails to notify you of the incoming expiration of your subscription 5, 3 and 1 days prior to the date your subscription expires. For lifetime subscriptions, your membership account will never expire and you will not be notified of any incoming membership expiration.

We may de-activate your account or cancel your subscription at any time by notifying you. You may cancel your subscription any time ahead of your subscription expiration date by sending an email request to Customer Service: support-at-consultingcase101-dot-com. Unless we state explicitly in writing otherwise, all membership fees and subscription charges will not be refunded should you decide to cancel your subscription before your account expires.

If your access to a Service is provided by, or through a Third Party, or if you have paid for access to the Service in connection with your subscription to one of our print or electronic publications, or purchased your subscription to the Service through an affiliated retailer rather than from us directly, some or all of the “Subscription Fees and Payments” terms may not apply to you. Please contact the Third Party, affiliated retailer or our Customer Service for details. If you access a Service as part of an open free trial or otherwise without becoming a subscriber, you are hereby notified that all of the terms and conditions of this Subscriber Agreement except the section labeled “Fees and Payments” and “Renewal” apply to your use and access of the Service.

We reserve the right to disclose any information about you, including username and registration data, in order to comply with any applicable laws and/or requests under legal process, to operate our systems properly, to protect our property or rights, and to safeguard the interests of others, as permitted by our published Privacy Policy.
