Please review these Terms of Service (these “Terms”) carefully before using this website and any related services. These Terms are a binding agreement between you and Democracy Works Inc. (“we” or “us”). These Terms govern your use of our website available at howto.vote, its respective subdomains, and other websites and software applications and partner-built sites or applications containing a link to these Terms (the “Site”), and your use of the How To Vote services described below.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES, AND OBLIGATIONS. THESE TERMS INCLUDE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY, AND A DISPUTE RESOLUTION CLAUSE THAT GOVERNS HOW DISPUTES WILL BE RESOLVED. BY USING THE SITE OR THE SERVICES, YOU ARE STATING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY, THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO USE THE SITE OR OUR SERVICES.
The How To Vote services related to the Site consist of an interactive service that allows users to ask for help or otherwise interact with us in relation to the Site (the “Services”).
Neither the Site nor the Services are intended for use by persons under the age of 13. The Site is controlled and operated by us from our offices within the Republic of Indonesia, for use of the Services within the Republic of Indonesia, and is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdictions of any other state, country, or territory.
We may change these Terms from time to time, at our sole discretion by updating the link to these Terms wherever referenced. If any modification is unacceptable to you, your only recourse is to terminate your use of the Site and the Services. Your continued use of the Site or the Services following the posting of such changes will constitute your assent to the revised Terms. Please periodically visit the link to these Terms to review the current version of these Terms.
We will make reasonable efforts to ensure the validity and correctness of the information, links and Services offered at the Site or through the Services. We will use various measures to improve the accuracy and reliability of the Site and the Services we provide. However, it is ultimately your own responsibility, as a citizen, to obtain and abide by all voter registration and election laws, eligibility requirements, deadlines, and regulations. We make no warranties or representations about the Site or the Services, including but not limited to accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or reliability. Nor can we guarantee that the Site and the Services will be kept available or updated—we reserve the right to change, suspend, or discontinue all or any part of the Site or the Services at any time without prior notice or liability to you.
Neither the Site nor the Services are a voter registration drive. Neither the Site nor the Services provide or replace individualized legal or electoral advice. The Site and the Services may include information which is out-of-date, jurisdiction-specific, or applicable only based on a specific set of facts and that may not apply to your situation. Use of the Services or Site does not create an attorney-client relationship between the user and us. If you are in need of legal advice, seek individual attorney advice and do not rely on the Site or the Services. We are not your lawyer, agent, or representative for any purpose.
