Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions govern all use of CardScan.Me, including, but not limited to, the CardScan.Me service (“service”).  On CardScan.Me, service includes the Profile which is comprised of both “public” & “private” portions.  The Profile is owned and operated by CardScan.Me and is offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies and procedures that may be published from time to time on this Site by CardScan.Me (collectively, the “Agreement”).

Please read this Agreement carefully before creating, accessing, or using the Profile. By accessing or using any part of the website, you agree to the terms and conditions in this agreement.  If you do not agree to this agreement, then you may not access the Profile or use any services associated with CardScan.Me.
The use of CardScan.Me, including the Profiles, is available only to individuals who are at least 13 years old.

Your CardScan.Me Account & Site
If you create a CardScan.Me profile on the website, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and profile.  You are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with the profile. You must not describe or assign keywords to your profile in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others.  CardScan.Me may change or remove any description or keyword that it considers inappropriate or unlawful, or otherwise likely to cause CardScan.Me liability. You must immediately notify CardScan.Me of any unauthorized uses of your profile, your account or any other breaches of security.  CardScan.Me will not be liable for any acts or omissions by You, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

You are responsible for protecting the password that you use to access CardScan.Me Services and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. CardScan.Me cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.

Username Conflicts
CardScan.Me has a zero tolerance policy for the practice of deliberately claiming a recognizable name which does not belong to You. Beyond prevention of infringement on trademarks, brands and DBA names, CardScan.Me is committed to ensuring the right of individuals in the public sphere to claim their legal names and associated monikers on the Service. By registering a recognized name (e.g. that of a celebrity, well known brand) you agree to forfeit that username should the rightful owner protest your claim. With no prior notice, CardScan.Me reserves the right to delete any and all uploaded assets, including text and images, and re-assign the account email and password to the authenticated person or company that should have that name.

Services Fees Payment
Currently, CardScan.Me is a free service. We maintain the right to change that at a later date. CardScan.Me reserves the right to change the payment terms and fees upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to you. Services can be canceled by you at anytime on 30 days written notice to CardScan.Me.

Fees and Payment
Optional premium paid services such as theme upgrades, domain purchase, and deep dive analytics may become available on the Profile. At such time, selecting a premium service means that you agree to pay CardScan.Me fees indicated for that service. Payments will be charged on the day you sign up for a premium service and will cover the use of that service for a period as indicated. Premium service fees are not refundable.
