By submitting material to any public posting areas of this Site, such as any ratings, reviews, or comments area, you agree that we, and our partners, agents, affiliates and service providers (collectively, "Third Party Providers"), may reproduce, modify, and distribute such material as we see fit in any medium and for any purpose.

Click the My Account link on any ownzones.com page to see the end date for your current subscription period. We automatically bill your Payment Method each month on the calendar day corresponding to the day your paid subscription started. In the event your paid subscription began on a day not contained in a given month, we will bill your Payment Method on the last day of such month. For example, if you started your OWNZONES paid subscription on January 31st, your next payment date would be February 28th and your Payment Method would be billed on that date. You acknowledge that the amount billed each month may vary from month to month for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or related charges. Check with your bank and credit card issuers for details.
PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our members ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle you to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different Payment Method or if there is a change in Payment Method, such as your credit card validity or expiration date, you may edit your Payment Method information by clicking the My Account link on any ownzones.com page. If your Payment Method is a credit card, and your credit card reaches its expiration date and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you authorize us to continue billing that Payment Method and you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts.
WITH THE EXCEPTION OF ONE-TIME CHARGES FOR ONE-TIME EVENTS, YOUR OWNZONES SUBSCRIPTION WILL CONTINUE MONTH-TO-MONTH UNLESS AND UNTIL YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION OR WE TERMINATE IT. YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION BEFORE IT RENEWS EACH MONTH IN ORDER TO AVOID BILLING OF THE NEXT MONTH'S SUBSCRIPTION FEES TO YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. WE WILL BILL THE MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION FEE TO THE PAYMENT METHOD YOU PROVIDE TO US DURING REGISTRATION (OR TO A DIFFERENT PAYMENT METHOD IF YOU CHANGE YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION). SUBSCRIPTION FEES ARE FULLY EARNED UPON PAYMENT.
FREE TRIAL OFFERS.
OWNZONES may offer limited-time free trial subscriptions to certain you from time-to-time. Users who sign up for Content on a free trial basis may have limited access to such Content or other features of the Site. If you sign up for a free trial subscription, after the expiration of the free trial period, you will be charged the price then in effect for a subscription to the Content, unless otherwise provided to you when you originally subscribed. If you do not want to have continued access to the Content after the expiration of the free trial period, you must cancel your subscription within thirty (30) days of being charged the subscription fee for the Content. Upon cancellation, your credit card will be refunded for the amount of the most recent subscription charge, if any, so long as you have not used the subscription or accessed the Content following the expiration of the free trial period.
ACCESS TO CONTENT.
The Site provides you access to a variety of Content, including without limitation, digital books, magazines, articles, music and video, subject to your account being charged the appropriate one-time fee or subscription fee. Your payment for Content is for the purpose of providing you with a limited, non-exclusive license to access such digital content and you do not have any ownership right in or to any Content on the Site. Since the Site provides a streaming solution for Content, you are not currently able to permanently or temporarily download any Content on any device such as your personal computer, mobile phone or tablet. Your subscription or payment for Content means you are entitled to access such Content through the Site for so long as the third party content provider permits or makes such content available to OWNZONES as part of OWNZONES' agreement with its Third Party Providers. In the case of a one-time fee for Content, this time period may mean you are able to access such Content, as an example only, for a specified period of time from your date of payment. In the case of a subscription, you are permitted to access the Content through the Site so long as you maintain and pay for a subscription on OWNZONES subject to the terms of this Agreement and of our agreements with Third Party Providers.
To use certain features of the Site, you will need a user ID and password, which can be created through the Site's registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and you are responsible for all actions taken (whether taken by you or by other authorized users of your account) by users of your password or account. IF YOU DISCLOSE YOUR PASSWORD TO ANYONE OR SHARE YOUR ACCOUNT AND/OR DEVICES WITH OTHER PEOPLE, YOU TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS.
ACCOUNT ACCESS; IDENTITY PROTECTION.
In order to provide you with ease of access to your account and to help administer our service, we implement technology that enables us to recognize you as the account holder and provide you with direct access to your account without requiring you to retype any password or other user identification when you revisit the Site.
Where possible, users of public or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you fail to log out, subsequent users may access the OWNZONES service through your account and may be able to access certain of your account information.
If you find that you're a victim of identity theft and it involves an OWNZONES account, you should notify Customer Service immediately. Also, you should be mindful of any communication requesting that you submit credit card or other account information. Providing your information in response to these types of communications can result in identity theft. Always access your sensitive account information by going directly to the OWNZONES website and not through a hyperlink in an email or any other electronic communication, even if it looks official.
We reserve the right to place any account on hold anytime with or without notification to the member in order to protect itself and its partners from what it believes to be fraudulent activity. We are not obligated to credit or discount a membership for holds placed on the account by either a representative of us or by our automated processes.
You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. We disclaim any liability for loss or damage caused by or related to your failure to protect your password or account information.
MODIFICATIONS TO THE SITE.
We reserve the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Site (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site.
You may cancel your OWNZONES subscription at any time. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL-MONTH SUBSCRIPTION PERIODS.
Cancelling channel access is an easy few-step process. From the home page, click My Account from the dropdown menu at the top-left of the page. From there, you will select My Purchases, which will bring you to a list of your current channel(s). Across from each listing you will see a ‘subscribe’ checkbox, which you will want to unmark. Take that step for any channel you are no longer interested in, and your subscription will be cancelled and no further charges will be applied.

AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE.

YOU AND OWNZONES AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND OWNZONES AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING.

ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER SITE USERS.
Pre- Arbitration Dispute Resolution
OWNZONES is interested in resolving disputes amicably. So before you commence arbitration, please contact us to explain your complaint, as we may be able to resolve it without the need for arbitration. You may contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at OWNZONES Media Network, Inc. Attn: Legal Department, 315 S Beverly Dr. Suite 508, Beverly Hills, CA 90212.
To commence arbitration against OWNZONES, you must complete a short form, submit it to the AAA, and send a copy to OWNZONES Media Network, Inc. Attn: Legal Department, 315 S Beverly Dr. Suite 508, Beverly Hills, CA 90212. For more information, see the AAA's claim filing page, http://www.adr.org/fileacase. You may represent yourself in the arbitration or be represented by an attorney or another representative. Once we receive your arbitration claim, we may assert any counterclaims we may have against you.
The arbitration shall be held in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less you or OWNZONES may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and OWNZONES subject to the arbitrator's discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at any in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or OWNZONES, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of California, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Site users, but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Site user to the extent required by applicable law.
Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the "Arbitration Fees") will be governed by the AAA's Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Agreement to Arbitrate. Each party will be responsible for all fees it incurs in connection with the arbitration, including without limitation, all attorney fees. In the event the arbitrator determines the claim(s) you assert in the arbitration to be frivolous, you agree to reimburse OWNZONES all fees associated with the arbitration paid by OWNZONES on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under the AAA's rules.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
