License and warrant your submissions: You do not have to submit anything to us, but if you choose to submit something (including any User-generated content, ideas, concepts, techniques, and data), you must grant, and you actually grant by concluding this Agreement, a nonexclusive, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual, unlimited, assignable, sub-licensable, fully paid up and royalty-free right to us to copy, prepare derivative works of, improve, distribute, publish, remove, retain, add, and use and commercialize, in any way now known or in the future discovered, anything that you submit to us, without any further consent, notice and/or compensation to you or to any third parties. By submitting any information to us, you represent and warrant that such submission is accurate, is not confidential, and is not in violation of any contractual restrictions or other third-party rights. You further agree to inform Pioneer Credit Counseling in the event that any such information has changed since your registration with us and, if appropriate, you agree to make such modifications yourself to your profile.
Prior to managing your website, or another service with Pioneer Credit Counseling, you agree that any content managed by Pioneer Credit Counseling, and its array of products and services, is not exportable to other software or services.

Keep your password secure: Keep your password confidential, do not use other Users’ accounts and do not let others use your account; you are responsible for anything that happens through your account – until you notify us of a breach (email@example.com), close down your account or prove that your account security was compromised due to a fault of our systems. You are prohibited from selling, trading or otherwise transferring your Pioneer Credit Counseling account or any information therein to another party or charging anyone for access to any portion of the software, or any information therein.
Indemnify us: You have to indemnify us and hold us harmless from any damages, losses and costs (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) related to third party claims, charges or investigations, caused by (a) your failure to comply with this Agreement, including, without limitation, your submission of content that violates third party rights or applicable laws, (b) any content you submit to Pioneer Credit Counseling or our subsidiaries or affiliates or (c) any activity in which you engage on or through the Pioneer Credit Counseling portals.

Termination You may terminate this Agreement, for any or no cause, at any time, with notice to Pioneer Credit Counseling which shall be effective upon Pioneer Credit Counseling processing such notice. Pioneer Credit Counseling may terminate the Agreement for any or no cause, at any time, with or without notice, which shall be effective immediately or as may be specified in the notice. For avoidance of doubt, your access to any Premium Services may be terminated only by Pioneer Credit Counseling or the party paying for such services. Termination of your Pioneer Credit Counseling account includes disabling your access to software and services (including any content you submitted or others submitted) and may also bar you from any future use of Pioneer Credit Counseling Software.
In furtherance and without limiting the foregoing, Pioneer Credit Counseling has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Pioneer Credit Counseling sole discretion, members who are deemed to be repeat infringers under the United States Copyright Act. Pioneer Credit Counseling may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Service and/or terminate the memberships of any users or sites who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Upon Termination, software owned and maintained by Pioneer Credit Counseling is not transferrable, the only content which may be downloaded by you is the templates which compose the design of your website or portal. You may not have access to databases which control content or services. You are responsible for transfering all content from your account to a new service provider in the event of termination.
Severability: If any provision of the Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable under mandatory laws of a particular jurisdiction, such provision shall be interpreted as to give maximum effect to its intended purpose and this shall not affect the validity or enforceability of (a) such provision under the laws of any other jurisdiction, or (b) any other provision of the Agreement.

No informal waivers, agreements or representations: Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to that breach or subsequent similar or other breaches. Except as expressly and specifically contemplated by the Agreement, no representations, statements, consents, waivers or other acts or omissions by any Pioneer Credit Counseling Affiliate shall be deemed legally binding on any Pioneer Credit Counseling Affiliate, unless documented in a physical writing hand signed by a duly appointed officer of Pioneer Credit Counseling.
No Injunctive Relief: In no event shall you seek or be entitled to rescission, injunctive or other equitable relief, or to enjoin or restrain the operation of the Service, exploitation of any advertising or other materials issued in connection therewith, or exploitation of the Service or any content or other material used or displayed through the Service.
