AccuWeather may display political advertising as a business transaction, from advocacy groups and candidates for office. AccuWeather does not endorse candidates for political office or endorse any political statements, positions or issues.

AccuWeather also reserves the right to reject or remove any Submission, in its sole discretion, for any reason.


    22. Modifications. AccuWeather may modify this Agreement at any time, and the new terms and conditions will become effective by posting the new terms and conditions in the same location as the previous terms and conditions were posted. AccuWeather has the right at any time to modify or cancel any feature or functionality of the Site, including hours of availability, content, applications, and equipment requirements for use with the Products and/or services, and AccuWeather reserves the right to suspend or terminate access to this Site and/or the Products and/or services provided without prior notice in the event you are in violation of these terms of use, or for scheduled or unscheduled support and maintenance on the Site.

    23. Terms of Service. These Terms and Conditions are effective upon acceptance, and shall remain and continue until terminated. Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligation hereunder may be assigned by you without the express written permission of AccuWeather, and any purported transfer of rights shall oblige the transferee to these Terms and Conditions, and your rights will be terminated. You may terminate these Terms and Conditions by destroying, removing or obliterating the Products and all copies thereof, and certifying as such to AccuWeather. AccuWeather may terminate your right to use the Site and its Products and services upon the breach by you of any provision contained in these Terms and Conditions, any applicable Provider Terms, Subscription Terms, the End User License Agreement, or the Privacy Statement governing this Site and downloaded Products. Upon such termination by AccuWeather, you agree to certify the destruction, removal or obliteration of the Products and all copies thereof to AccuWeather.

    24. Notice. Posting of notice(s) on the Site by AccuWeather shall constitute notice to you. Written notice of termination and requests for credit (as applicable - see Subscription Terms) shall be provided in the following manner: email notification to webhelp@accuwx.com or facsimile notification at 814-238-1339, Attn: Webmaster. No credits or refunds are available for cancellation of monthly wireless services.

    25. Choice of Laws / Jurisdiction. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, with the exception of export control, infra, which is governed by US Federal law. Any dispute arising out of this Agreement or related thereto shall be subject to the jurisdiction of said Courts located within Pennsylvania, and it is further agreed that any and all matters of dispute shall be adjudicated, governed and controlled under and by Pennsylvania law.

    26. Subscription Terms. You agree to pay to AccuWeather the fees stated or as specified from time to time for various fee-based Products and services available by or through AccuWeather, and you are responsible for promptly paying for AccuWeather Products and services. Failure to pay these fees in a timely manner will result in an interruption of fee-based Site Products and services and the functional inability to access the fee-based sections of the Site. Charges will be calculated based upon the subscription package selected, and are applicable to the current version of the package selected. Upgrades related to Hardware changes or new releases may be subject to additional charges. "Lifetime" subscription packages relate only to the Products initially downloaded or accessed by you, and do not extend to upgrades to the Products or different Hardware. AccuWeather reserves the right to discontinue and/or cancel Lifetime Subscriptions for wireless Products, so long as AccuWeather provides you a free upgrade to a different Product for your wireless device. Failure of payment shall render due and payable all sums plus a late payment charge of one and one half percent per month. Fees may be prorated for portions of months. Use of the service beyond the free time or without proper authorization will result in charges to billing or credit card account. Fees and payment terms therefore are subject to change upon Notice by AccuWeather to you. Packages, once purchased, are nonrefundable, regardless of use or lack of use by you. Absolutely no credits or refunds are available for month-to-month or one-time fee-based services, including, without limitation, mobile/wireless service packages. Once a charge has been processed to your credit card or wireless account, you shall not request that your credit card or mobile carrier company reverse the charge or charge it back to AccuWeather. If you have a legitimate basis to request a credit for a charge previously processed against his or her credit card account, he or she shall request a credit from AccuWeather by written notice and resolve the issue directly with AccuWeather. Any reversed charges which cause the credit card company to impose a charge back, refund, or credit cost against AccuWeather shall be reimposed by AccuWeather upon you. Such costs may exceed the cost of the reversed item or charge back by many times.

    27. Renewal Terms. Monthly subscription packages shall continue to renew monthly until proper termination notification is received from you. Upon expiration of subscription period for any 6 Month Special and One Year Supersaver packages, you will be renewed on monthly subscription terms unless proper termination notification is received from you.

    28. LANGUAGE. TO THE EXTENT THIS AGREEMENT MAY BE TRANSLATED INTO A LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH AND THERE IS A CONFLICT OF TERMS BETWEEN THE ENGLISH AND THE OTHER LANGUAGE, THE ENGLISH VERSION SHALL CONTROL. THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS MAY CHANGE PERIODICALLY, SO PLEASE CHECK BACK OFTEN.

    29. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. THESE TERMS OF USAGE, TOGETHER WITH ACCUWEATHER'S PRIVACY STATEMENT AND ANY END USER LICENSE AGREEMENT, SUBSCRIPTION TERMS, PROVIDER TERMS AND/OR ANY OTHER AGREEMENTS OR TERMS APPEARING OR REFERENCED ON THIS SITE AND/OR ENTERED INTO BETWEEN THE PARTIES IN WRITING REPRESENT THE ENTIRE SET OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS GOVERNING YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND ANY PRODUCTS (WHERE APPLICABLE) ACCESSED THROUGH THIS SITE, AND IT SUPERSEDES ANY PRIOR PROPOSAL, REPRESENTATION, OR UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
