As such, all of our listings are protected by U.S. and international copyright law, individually and as collective works. You agree that you will not distribute, publish, transmit, transfer, reproduce, display, or re-sell any of our listings, individually or collectively, and that you will use our listings only to identify opportunities for sales of your goods and/or services.

Your account will billed and paid in advance on a monthly or annual basis by charge to the credit or debit card that you provide. Billing is recurring and automatic upon the expiration of your most recent billing term, to ensure uninterrupted service to you.
In the event that any payment by you fails, you will be promptly notified. Your access to OpenSoon may be interrupted, at our discretion, until any billing issue is resolved and payment is made.

No Guarantees or Warranties
We do our best to provide the earliest, most accurate, and most useful information on pre-opening SMBs that we can, but the immense volume of information that we scan and sort through makes it likely that an occasional listing, or details in a listing, may be incorrect or inaccurate, or that a prospect may have opened before you contact it.
Likewise, listings that are correct and accurate at the time of posting may subsequently become incorrect or inaccurate. You agree to use your best judgment in deciding when, whether, for how long, and to what extent you wish to pursue any particular listed prospect.
As a result, we make no guarantee or warranty with respect to any information set forth in any of our listings.
And, while we will always use our best efforts to ensure that you have access to our services at all times, we make no guarantee that your access will be free of interruptions. For interruptions lasting more than seven (7) days, we will provide pro rata refunds.
The privacy and confidentiality of information related to your business is important to us, and we are committed to protecting the information that we collect regarding your interactions with us and our services.
We do collect certain information regarding your use of our services, so that we may improve the services that we offer, improve your experience on our website, and to bring useful and timely news and information to you about how to get the most out of your OpenSoon subscription.
We also use third party service providers, including, but not limited to, Google Analytics. These services capture, and provide to us, data regarding your use of our services, your interactions with our email and other marketing communications, and other categories and types of information.
While we take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the data that we collect, we cannot and do not guarantee perfect security, and we do not warrant against the possibility that information related to you that we may have collected and stored may be accessed and/or used by third parties who have not been authorized by us or you.
There may be instances in which we may be required by law to comply with a subpoena, court order, or other demand to produce to third parties information that we may have that is or may be related to you. You agree that we are entitled to choose to comply with such subpoena, court order, or other demand, even in instances in which we may have reasonable legal grounds to challenge the subpoena, court order, or other demand, and that we may so choose without consulting further with you, and without your further consent.
We also reserve the right, and you agree that we have the right, to transfer information that we may have collected about you and/or your use of our services to other parties in connection with any transaction that materially affects OpenSoon, Inc., such as a merger, sale of all or a portion of company assets or shares, reorganization, financing, change of control or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company or third party in the event of bankruptcy or related or similar proceedings.
We note that we do not, at any time, have access to any information regarding the credit or debit card account that you use to pay for your OpenSoon subscription. All payment processing is through Stripe, and submission of your credit or debit card information is entirely at your own risk. You agree that you understand those risks, including the risk of financial loss, and the risk of loss of personally identifiable information, financial information, and other data that may be transmitted between you and Stripe. You agree that OpenSoon is not liable, and you will not seek to hold OpenSoon liable, for any loss incurred that is or may be related to your use of Stripe in paying for your OpenSoon subscription, and that any claims made are subject to the Limitation of Liability set forth in these Terms.

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO VERIFY, TO YOUR SATISFACTION, THESE AND ANY OTHER MATTERS PERTAINING TO THE PROSPECTS WE LIST.
You agree that under no circumstances other than those expressly provided for herein will we be liable to you for more than the price of one month of service for any claim, during the period of your subscription to our services. For accounts paid on an annual basis, liability under this paragraph will be based on a thirty-day month, pro rata, and based on the annual service plan price in effect for your account at the time at which the claim accrued.
You agree that you are solely and exclusively liable for your conduct in using the information that we provide. You agree to abide by all laws governing your solicitation of business from any prospects that we provide to you. You agree that you will indemnify us against any liability, and to hold us harmless, from and to pay for any loss, damage, cost, claims, and/or expense (including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and disbursements and any other costs of litigation as the same become due and payable by us) on account of any claim brought against us based in whole or in part on or otherwise related to your conduct.
