Membership, Free Trials, Billing and Cancellation
Ongoing Membership. Your U.S. WEED CHANNEL membership, which may start with a free trial, will continue month-to-month or year-to-year and automatically renew unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it. You must have Internet access and provide us with a current, valid, accepted method of payment (as such may be updated from time to time, "Payment Method") to use the U.S. WEED CHANNEL service. We will bill the membership fee you selected to your Payment Method. You must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next month's membership fees to your Payment Method.
Your U.S. WEED CHANNEL membership may start with a free trial. The free trial period of your membership lasts for one week, or as otherwise specified during sign-up. For combinations with other offers, restrictions may apply. Free trials are for new and certain former members only. U.S. WEED CHANNEL reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to determine your free trial eligibility.
We will begin billing your Payment Method for membership fees at the start or end of the free trial period of your membership and your membership will automatically renew unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. We may authorize your Payment Method through various methods, including authorizing it up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization during your free trial period.
CLICK THE "YOUR ACCOUNT" LINK AT THE TOP OF ANY U.S. WEED CHANNEL WEB PAGE (www.USWEEDCHANNEL.com) TO FIND CANCELLATION INSTRUCTIONS. We will continue to bill your Payment Method on your selected basis for your membership fee until you cancel.
Recurring Billing. By starting your U.S. WEED CHANNEL membership and providing or designating a Payment Method, you authorize us to charge you a membership fee at the then current rate, and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the U.S. WEED CHANNEL service, such as taxes or possible transaction fees, to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary for reasons that may include differing amounts due to promotional offers, including gift card redemption and promotional code redemption, and/or changing or adding a plan, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amounts, which may be billed in one or more charges.
No Refunds. PAYMENTS ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND THERE ARE NO REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR PARTIALLY USED PERIODS. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. 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.
Payment Methods. You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting our website and clicking on the "Your Account" link, available at the top of the pages of the U.S. WEED CHANNEL website. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your Payment Method information or cancel your account (see, "Cancellation" below), you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the Payment Method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates. We may update your Payment Method with information provided by the applicable payment service provider, and you authorize us to continue to charge the membership fee to the updated Payment Method. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charges. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
Cancellation. You may cancel your U.S. WEED CHANNEL membership at any time, and you will continue to have access to the U.S. WEED CHANNEL service through the end of your monthly billing period. WE DO NOT PROVIDE REFUNDS OR CREDITS FOR ANY PARTIAL MEMBERSHIP PERIODS OR UNWATCHED U.S. WEED CHANNEL CONTENT.

If you cancel your membership, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. To see when your account will close, click "View billing details" on the "Your Account" page. If you signed up for U.S. WEED CHANNEL using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, and wish to cancel your U.S. WEED CHANNEL membership at any time, including during your free trial, you may need to do so through such third party, including by visiting your account with the applicable third party and turning off auto-renew, or unsubscribing from, the U.S. WEED CHANNEL service through that third party.

If you elect to seek arbitration or file a small claim court action, you must first send to U.S. WEED CHANNEL, by certified mail, a written Notice of your claim ("Notice"). The Notice to U.S. WEED CHANNEL must be addressed to: General Counsel, U.S. WEED CHANNEL, Inc., 20991 skylard Drive, Lake Forest, CA 92630 ("Notice Address"). If U.S. WEED CHANNEL initiates arbitration, it will send a written Notice to the email address used for your membership account. A Notice, whether sent by you or by U.S. WEED CHANNEL, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If U.S. WEED CHANNEL and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or U.S. WEED CHANNEL may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court.
You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration at www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after U.S. WEED CHANNEL receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, U.S. WEED CHANNEL will not reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, even when your claim is for greater than US$10,000, in all events you will be responsible for filing fees.
The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration agreement.
If your claim is for US$10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US$10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of U.S. WEED CHANNEL’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if U.S. WEED CHANNEL did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then U.S. WEED CHANNEL will pay you the amount of the award or US$5,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
YOU AND U.S. WEED CHANNEL AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and U.S. WEED CHANNEL agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.

Interest-Based Ads. Interest-based ads are online ads that are tailored to your likely interests based on your use of various apps and websites across the Internet. If you are using a browser, then cookies and web beacons can be used to collect information to help determine your likely interests. If you are using a mobile device, tablet, or streaming media device that includes a resettable device identifier, then that identifier can be used to help determine your likely interests. For your choices about interest-based ads from U.S. WEED CHANNEL, please see the "Cookies and Internet Advertising" section(below).
Matched Identifier Communications. Some third party sites and apps allow us to reach our users with online promotions about our titles and services by sending a privacy protective identifier to the third party. A privacy protective identifier means we convert the original information (such as an email address or phone number) into a value to keep the original information from being revealed. The third party compares the privacy protective identifier to identifiers in its database and there will be a match only if you have used the same identifier (such as an email address) with U.S. WEED CHANNEL and the third party.If there is a match, U.S. WEED CHANNEL can then choose whether or not to send a given promotional communication to you on that third party site or app, and can optimize and better measure the effectiveness of online advertising. You can opt out in the “MarketingCommunications” section of the “Account” section of our website.

Cookies and Internet Advertising
Cookies and similar technologies, web beacons, and resettable device identifiers
Cookies are small data files that are commonly stored on your device when you browse and use websites and online services. We use other technologies such as browser storage and plugins (e.g., HTML5, IndexedDB, and WebSQL). Like cookies, these other technologies may store small amounts of data on your device. Web beacons (also known as clear gifs or pixel tags) often workin conjunction with cookies. In many cases, declining cookies will impair the effectiveness of web beacons associated with those cookies.
If you use the U.S. WEED CHANNEL app on a mobile device, tablet, or streaming media device, we may collect a resettable device identifier from your device. Resettable device identifiers (also known as advertising identifiers) are similar to cookies and are found on many mobile devices and tablets (for example, the "Identifier forAdvertisers" (or IDFA) on Apple iOS devices and the "Google Advertising ID" on Android devices), and certain streaming media devices. Like cookies, resettable device identifiers are used to make online advertising more relevant and for analytics and optimization purposes.
Why does U.S. WEED CHANNEL use these technologies?
We use these types of technologies for various reasons, like making it easy to access our services by remembering you when you return; to provide, analyze, understand and enhance the use of our services; to enforce our terms, prevent fraud; to improve site performance, monitor visitor traffic and actions on our site; and to deliver and tailor our marketing or advertising, and to understand interactions with our emails, marketing, and online ads on third party sites.
Performance and functionality cookies: These cookies help us to customize and enhance your online experience with U.S. WEED CHANNEL. For example, they help us to remember your preferences and prevent you from needing to re-enter information you previously provided (for example, during member sign up). We also use these cookies to collect information (such as popular pages, conversion rates, viewing patterns, click-through and other information) about our visitors' use of the U.S. WEED CHANNEL service so that we can enhance and personalize our website and service and conduct market research. Deletion of these types of cookies may result in limited functionality of our service.
Advertising cookies and resettable device identifiers: These cookies and resettable device identifiers use information about your use of this and other websites and apps, your response to ads and emails, and to deliver ads that are more relevant to you. These types of ads are called "interest-based advertising."The advertising cookies associated with our service belong to our ServiceProviders.
In connection with our use of these technologies, some of the websites and apps where we advertise, as well as advertising technology companies that we use to purchase, deliver, optimize, and/or measure our advertisements (collectively “AdvertisingPartners”), may receive limited information from us as part of our campaign targeting, measurement, and optimization (e.g., steps completed in sign-up and site visit or app open/install information).
Common uses of this type of information are to judge the effectiveness of and optimize ad campaigns, by allowing Advertising Partners to see when someone who saw an ad later signed up for our service. Another common use is to make sure we do not serve ads trying to get individuals to sign up for the U.S. WEED CHANNEL service if they are already a U.S. WEED CHANNEL user.
U.S. WEED CHANNEL uses contractual and technical measures designed to prevent Advertising Partners from accessing information regarding specific title selections you make, URLs you land on, or shows you have watched on our service. We do not share information about title selections or your shows you have watched on our service.
How can I exercise choice regarding these technologies?

At this time, we do not respond to web browser "do not track"signals.
To exercise choice regarding resettable device identifiers
To opt out of interest-based ads from U.S. WEED CHANNEL in connection with an resettable device identifier on a mobile device, tablet, or streaming media devices, please configure the appropriate setting on your device (usually found under "privacy"or "ads" in your device's settings). You may still see U.S. WEED CHANNEL ads on your device, but they will not be tailored to your likely interests.
To exercise choice using self-regulatory program resources
U.S. WEED CHANNEL supports the following self-regulatory programs, which provide additional privacy choices for interest-based advertising:
In the US: Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA)
To exercise choice regarding other technologies
There are a number of ways to exercise choice regarding technologies that are similar to cookies, such as browser storage and plugins (e.g., HTML5, IndexedDB, and WebSQL). For example, many popular browsers provide the ability to clear browser storage, commonly in the settings or preferences area; see your browser's help function or support area to learn more. Other technologies, such as Silverlight storage, may be cleared from within the application.
