MEETINGKING TERMS OF SERVICE
Effective Date April 1, 2011
Description of the Service
The Service enables You to organize meetings. You can schedule meetings; set agendas; create meeting minutes; create a task list; attach documents to agenda topics, minutes and tasks; and send email messages to meeting invitees or other related parties. We reserve the right to make changes to the design, offerings, technical specifications, systems, and other functions of the Service, at any time without prior notice.
The Service is generally available at any time. However We may schedule downtime during which time the Service will be unavailable for technical, maintenance, operational, or security reasons. You acknowledge that We cannot guarantee Your access to the Internet and that We shall not be in any way responsible if You are unable to access the Service due to deficiencies in Your own Internet connections or equipment.
Creating an Account
In order to use the Service, You must create a MeetingKing account using Your email address, full name and a password. You will receive a confirmation email requiring that You follow the instructions in the email in order to complete creation of Your account. When creating an account, You agree to provide accurate and complete information. You are responsible for keeping Your account information current. You are responsible for safeguarding Your password and You agree not to disclose Your password to any third party. You agree to take sole responsibility for any actions made using Your password, whether or not You have authorized such actions. You will immediately notify Us of any unauthorized use of Your password.
Children under the age of 18 do not qualify to use the Service, nor do any former users whose accounts have been removed by Us for any reason. If You do not qualify to use the Service, You may not create an account or use the Service or this website.
You can create a Limited account or a Complete Account. A Complete account can be either an individual account or a corporate account. There is no fee to set-up or use a Limited account. A Complete account requires monthly or annual payments. We reserve the right to charge for any portion of the Service and to modify the pricing of, add to, or discontinue the Service or any portion thereof without prior notice. Features available through each account type are specified on the Account Types page at www.meetingking.com/plans.
We may make a Beta version of the Service (“Beta Version”) available. The Beta Version is Beta software and as such it is in an early stage of development. As is the case with all Beta software the Beta Version is not ready and is not intended for use in a production environment nor is it for use with any critical or confidential documents or data. Operation of the Beta Version may be unpredictable and could lead to erroneous results. You acknowledge and agree that the Beta Version is experimental in nature, has not been fully tested, and may contain errors and faults and Your use of the Beta Version is for the sole purpose of evaluating and testing the product and providing feedback to Us. Your use of the Beta Version is at Your own risk and is subject to all terms of this Agreement. Regarding Your use of the Beta Version, in the event of any conflict between the other provisions of this Agreement and the terms of this section, this section shall prevail.
If You set up an individual account and the domain of the email address associated with Your account was assigned to You as an employee of an organization, and that organization establishes a corporate account and adds You using the organization email address You used for your individual account to that account, then any information contained in and related to that account may become accessible to authorized representatives of that corporate account.
By using the Service, You are expressly agreeing that We are permitted to bill You a subscription fee, any applicable tax and any other charges You may incur in connection with Your use of the Service. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of Your subscription. We will then automatically bill You each billing period on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of Your subscription. All fees and charges will be charged in US dollars, are nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. If Your credit or debit card reaches its expiration date, Your continued use of the Service constitutes Your authorization for Us to continue billing You, and You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
Your subscription will be automatically renewed at the end of each term for a term of equal length, without prior notice to You, unless and until You cancel Your subscription, or We terminate it. You must cancel Your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next term’s subscription fees.

- transmit, route, or provide connections to store any material that infringes any copyright or otherwise violates or promotes the violation of the intellectual property rights of any third party;
- use or launch any automated system, such as “robots”, “spiders” or “offline readers” that access the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the servers in a given period of time than a single human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional online web browser;
- obtain or compile data about other user’s usage of the Service, invade the privacy of others, misuse the personal data of others, or otherwise incite a person, persons or corporate entity to carry out such acts;

- or impersonate or misrepresent Your affiliation with any person or entity
and (3) agree that You will not:
- access, tamper with, or use any non-public areas of the Service or Our systems or those of Our Service Providers;
