The following is the legal statement and acceptable use policy of USA Green Card and all related websites owned, operated, or controlled by USA Green Card.
Thank you for using the USA Green Card website. Described herein are the terms of the agreement between USA Green Card ("Company") and the user ("User") of Goods, Services, or Information through the Company's website (the "Site"). Please note that by using the Site, the User will be considered to agree to the following disclaimers and other terms and conditions:
User agrees to the terms and conditions outlined in this Online Contract ("Contract") with respect to the Goods, Services and Information provided by or through the Site. This Contract constitutes the entire and only agreement between the Company and User, and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements, representations, warranties, and understandings with respect to the Goods, Services and Information provided by or through the Site, and the subject matter of this Contract. User agrees to review this Contract prior to purchasing any Good or using any Service and purchase of any Company Good or use of any Company Service shall be deemed acceptance of this Contract.
The processing fee paid by User to Company is paid solely for the review, preparation, submission, and tracking of User's registration in the United States Diversity Visa Program ("DV Program").
User is granted permission to use the Services to prepare DV Program applications. The Services may be used only for their intended purpose, and may not, for example, be used to prepare immigration forms, supporting documents, or letters on a professional basis. User shall not attempt to access any other of Company's systems, programs, or data that are not made available for public use. User is solely authorized to use the user name and password provided by Company upon registration, and User shall not permit or allow other persons to have access to or use the same. User is responsible for the use of the Services under User's user name, and for maintaining the confidentiality of User's user name and password.
User represents and warrants that (i) the credit card information supplied is true, correct, and complete, (ii) charges incurred by the User will be honored by the User's credit card company, and (iii) User shall pay charges incurred by User at the amounts in effect at the time incurred, including all applicable taxes. User shall be responsible for all charges incurred through use of User's user name and password. User agrees to keep his or her user name and password confidential and to notify Company within 24 hours of any breach of this Contract or unauthorized use of the user name and password. Company does not protect User from unauthorized use of User's user name and password.
Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to edit or delete any information, content, functionality, availability, and pricing appearing on the Site and to remove any goods and services for sale. Upon notice published over the Service, Company may modify this Contract, or prices, and may discontinue or revise any or all aspects of the Site in its sole discretion and without prior notice. Modification of this Contract will be deemed effective upon publication on the Site with respect to transactions occurring after said date.
It is User's responsibility to provide all registration requirements in the specified time allowed. Company does its best, but cannot guarantee to notify all Users who are missing items/information. It is the User's sole responsibility to complete all requirements and submit all items/information required for successful processing of User's registration in the DV Program. Company will not submit User's registration for the DV Program unless all information and data are received from the User on time and according to the requirements given at the time of initial registration. User acknowledges that all eligibility requirements have been read and understood and that User satisfies these requirements when enrolling in the DV Program. Registrations submitted after the Company's stated submission period are automatically processed in the next DV Program.
Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to refuse Service at any time. Sale of any Good or Service is subject to availability.
The United States Congress enacted the DV Program. The U.S. Government retains the right and has the authority at any time, with relevant Congressional approval, to cancel, delay, suspend, or modify the DV Program. Company shall not be held responsible in the event the DV Program is canceled, delayed, suspended, or modified in any way that prohibits completion of any pre-paid Good or Service. Company will not provide any refund for payments made in conjunction with the purchase of Goods or Services relating to the DV Program provided such payments were made prior to the public announcement of any such cancellation, delay, suspension, or modification of the DV Program.
User agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Company and its affiliates, licensors and suppliers harmless from any liability, loss, claim and expense, including reasonable attorney's fees, related to a User's violation of this Contract or use of the Site.
User's right to use the Service is not transferable and is subject to any limits established by Company.
The Company Site contains information, facts, and opinions from a variety of individuals, organizations, and government agencies. THE SERVICE, CONTENT, GOODS AND SERVICES FROM OR THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED "AS-IS," "AS AVAILABLE," AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE DISCLAIMED (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE DISCLAIMER OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE). NEITHER COMPANY, NOR ITS AFFILIATES ENDORSE OR ARE REPSONSIBLE FOR THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY OPINION, ADVICE, OR STATEMENT ON THE SITE. THE SOLE AND ENTIRE MAXIMUM LIABILITY OF COMPANY, FOR ANY REASON, AND USER'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID BY THE USER FOR THE PARTICULAR SERVICES OR GOODS PURCHASED. COMPANY AND ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, DEALERS OR SUPPLIERS ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF PROFITS, LITIGATION, OR THE LIKE), WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN COMPANY AND USER. THIS SITE AND GOODS AND SERVICES WOULD NOT BE PROVIDED WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.
User acknowledges that the operation and availability of the communications systems (e.g., the public telephone, computer networks, and the Internet) used for accessing and interacting with the Company's Services or to transmit information to relevant third-parties can be unpredictable and may, from time to time, interfere with or prevent access to Services or their operation. Company is not in any way responsible for any such interference with or prevention of your use of or access to Services.
Fees paid by User pay for Company's Services relating to the preparation, review, and electronic submission of User's application to the DV Program and do not pay for registration in the program. If User submits an application that the Company deems ineligible for inclusion in the DV Program, Company shall provide User with a full refund. In the event the DV Program is discontinued, no refund shall be given to User. Fees paid are refundable within 30 days, less a 30% cancellation fee, unless any of the following exceptions apply, in which case no refund is allowed. Fees are not refundable if submission of the User's application to the DV Program has already occurred. Fees are not refundable if submission of the application is made impossible by any events beyond the control of Company, including, but not limited to, acts of war, acts of nature, technological limitations, legislative or procedural changes, or User omissions. Fees paid are not refundable in the event that the DV Program is canceled by any act of the U.S. Government. Fees paid for multiple-year registrations are not recoverable after 30 days. All fees paid by any of the following methods are not refundable: cash, check, money order, bank transfer, and Western Union transfer. User acknowledges not to submit duplicate applications. Company is not responsible for any duplicate submissions. The U.S. Government does not charge a fee to participate in the DV Program. Company is an independent organization and fees paid to Company by User are applied to the preparation, review, submission, and tracking of User's application. By submitting an application and paying the required fees, User acknowledges, understands, and agrees to the refund policy specified herein. Company reserves the right to modify this Refund Policy at its discretion. This section sets forth User's sole and exclusive right to refund.
User acknowledges that User's use of the Service and the Sites is at User's own risk. COMPANY SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO USER OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY LOSS OR INJURY OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR SIMILAR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF USER'S ACCESS OR USE OF, OR USER'S INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, THE SERVICE AND THE SITES AND THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON THE SERVICE AND THE SITES OR ARISING OUT OF ANY ACTION TAKEN IN RESPONSE TO OR AS A RESULT OF ANY INFORMATION AVAILABLE ON THE SERVICE AND THE SITES. USER HEREBY WAIVES ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AGAINST COMPANY, AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES, DIVISIONS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES, AND LICENSORS ARISING OUT OF USER'S USE OF THE SERVICE AND THE SITES AND THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE THEREON.
User understands and agrees that the DV Program is a computer-run event that randomly selects candidates and that there is no guarantee of being selected. All registrations submitted that satisfy all requirements of the DV Program have an equal opportunity of being selected. Company is not involved in the selection of candidates and using Company's service does not guarantee User's selection in the DV Program.
Company reserves the right, and User authorizes Company, to the use and assignment of all information regarding User's use of the Site and all information provided by User, subject to applicable law. User agrees that any communication or material posted or transmitted to the Service or the Sites is, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary. User assumes full responsibility for anything posted or transmitted, and User grants Company and its affiliates the right to edit, copy, publish, and distribute any information or content User posts or transmits for any purpose, including but not limited to registration in the DV Program. Company and its affiliates do not review or monitor any websites linked to the Service and the Sites and are not responsible for the content of any such linked websites. User agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Company, its subsidiaries, divisions, affiliates, agents and representatives against, any claim arising from any material posted or transmitted. User agrees that Company is permitted to access and use any other information provided by User to perform the Services and, if necessary, to access such information to obtain contact information in order to provide notifications relating to the Services to User.
Company retains the right to immediately terminate User's access to or use of the Services in the event of any activities that are in breach of this Contract or conduct that, in Company's judgment, interferes with the operation or use of the Services (e.g., excessive usage of the Services that disrupts the use of the Services by other users). Termination of this Contract automatically terminates User's license and authorization to use and/or access Services and any content or other material contained therein.
Company is a private and independent organization. Company is not the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), or a law firm. Company is not in any way affiliated with or endorsed by the U.S. Department of State, the USCIS, or any other entity or agent of the U.S. Government. Company neither intends nor claims to provide legal advice.
Immigration laws and regulations change frequently and their application can vary widely based upon the specific facts and circumstances involved. User is responsible for consulting with professional immigration advisors concerning User's specific circumstances. Company disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy or adequacy of any positions taken by User on DV Program applications. All warranties or guarantees given or made by Company with respect to the Services are for the benefit of the registered User of the Services only and are not transferable, and shall be null and void if User breaches any terms or conditions of this Contract.
Company makes no representation or warranty regarding the compliance of the Site with the laws of foreign jurisdictions, and the services provided by the Site are not offered in any foreign jurisdictions where the Site does not comply with such laws. This Contract shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in Boston, Massachusetts, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States of America and of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (without regard to conflict of law principles).
The Site contains trademarks, service marks and copyrights that are the sole property of the Company. All information on the Site is protected under the copyright laws of the United States of America and in other countries. The content, organization, gathering, compilation, magnetic translation, digital conversion and other matters related to the Site are protected under applicable copyrights, trademarks, and other proprietary (including but not limited to intellectual property) rights. The copying, redistribution, use or publication by a User of any such content or any part of the Site is strictly prohibited without the prior written consent of the Company.
Any cause of action of User with respect to the Site must be instituted within ninety (90) days after any purchase or be forever waived and barred. All actions shall be subject to the limitations set forth in the No Warranties/Limitation of Liability section of this Contract. The language in this Contract shall be interpreted as to its fair meaning and not strictly for or against any party. All legal proceedings arising out of or in connection with this Contract shall be brought solely in Boston, Massachusetts, and User expressly submits to the jurisdiction of said courts and User consents to extra-territorial service of process. Should any part of this Contract be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed consistent with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site or the Company is in conflict or inconsistent with this Contract, this Contract shall take precedence. Failure of Company to enforce any provision of this Contract shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision.
This Contract sets forth Company's entire liability and User's exclusive remedy with respect to the Services, and is a complete statement of the agreement between User and Company. This Contract does not limit any rights that Company may have under trade secret, copyright, patent, or other laws. The Company employees are not authorized to make modifications to this agreement, or to make any additional representations, commitments, or warranties binding on Company, except in writing signed by an authorized officer of Company. If any provision of this Contract is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it shall be, to that extent, deemed omitted and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
