Terms of Service

Welcome to Blockspur.com, a business intelligence website run by Broad Holdings, LLC (“Broad Holdings”, “Blockspur”, “we”, “us”).

The following terms and conditions ("Terms") govern all use of the Blockspur.com website and all content, services, and products available at or through the website. Our Services are offered subject to your acceptance without modification of all of the terms and conditions contained herein and all other operating rules, policies (including, without limitation, our Privacy Policy) and procedures that may be published from time to time by Blockspur (collectively, the "Agreement"). You agree that we may automatically upgrade our Services, and these Terms will apply to any upgrades.

Please read this Agreement carefully before accessing or using our Services. By accessing or using any part of our Services, you agree to become bound by the Terms of this Agreement.

Use of some of our Services requires a Blockspur.com account. You agree to provide us with accurate information when you register for an account. Your account is for you as an individual only and sharing accounts with other people, including people at the same company or organization, is strictly forbidden and will result in losing the account without refund.

We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Fees, Payment, and Renewal
Fees. Some of our Services are offered for a fee (“Paid Service”). By using a Paid Service, you agree to pay the specified fees, which we'll bill or charge you for in regular intervals (such as monthly, annually, or some other term), on a pre-pay basis until you cancel, which you can do at any time by contacting support. Payment. If your payment fails or Paid Services are otherwise not paid for on time, we may immediately cancel or revoke your access to the Paid Services. If you contact your bank or credit card company to decline or reverse the charge of fees for Paid Services, we may revoke your access to our Services in general.

Automatic Renewal. To ensure uninterrupted service, our Paid Services are automatically renewed. This means that unless you cancel a Paid Service before the end of the applicable subscription period, it will automatically renew, and you authorize us to invoice you or use any payment mechanism we have on record for you to collect the then-applicable subscription fee (as well as any taxes). Your Paid Services are renewed for the same interval of time. For example, if you purchase an annual plan, you will be charged each year.

Fee Changes. We may change our fees at any time. When applicable, we may give you advance notice of the fee changes. If you don't agree with the fee changes, you can cancel your Paid Service.
