BY ACCESSING, BROWSING AND/OR USING THE PRODUCTS, A USER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HE OR SHE HAS READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREES TO BE BOUND BY ALL CONSENTS AND DISCLOSURES SET FORTH IN THE HUB REGISTRATION PROCESS (AND HEREBY INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE), ALL OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, INCLUDING ANY FUTURE MODIFICATIONS TO THE SARIS CYCLING GROUP TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE, AND IDENTIFIED AFFILIATED AGREEMENTS, GUIDELINES AND POLICIES (COLLECTIVELY, THE "AGREEMENT"). IF A USER DOES NOT CONSENT TO THE AGREEMENT, THEN SARIS CYCLING GROUP REQUIRES THAT SUCH USER CEASE USING THE PRODUCTS IMMEDIATELY.

OWNERSHIP AND PROPRIETARY RIGHTS

The Products are owned and operated by Saris Cycling Group. The Hub software, content, visual interfaces, information, graphics, design, compilation, computer code, online platform, products, equipment, software, services, including, but not limited to, the commute tracking scanner hardware and its applications, and all other related elements thereof (collectively, the "Products") are protected by United States copyright, trade dress, patent, and trademark laws, international laws and conventions, and all other relevant intellectual property and proprietary rights, and applicable laws. All materials and components contained in the Products are the property of Saris Cycling Group or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies and/or third-party licensors. All trademarks, service marks, and trade names displayed on the Products are proprietary to Saris Cycling Group or its affiliates and/or third-party licensors. Except as expressly authorized by Saris Cycling Group, any and all Users agree not to sell, license, distribute, copy, modify, publicly perform or display, transmit, publish, edit, adapt, create derivative works from, or otherwise make unauthorized use of the Products.

ACCOUNT INFORMATION

The Products are not available to persons under the age of 14, unless supervised by a parent/guardian over the age of 18, or to any Users suspended or removed from the Products by Saris Cycling Group. Users agree that the information that they provide Saris Cycling Group upon registration and at all other times will be true, accurate, current, and complete. Users also agree that they will ensure that this information is kept accurate and up to date at all times.

THE PRODUCTS

Saris Cycling Group will provide you the Products you chose on The Hub site. The Products are made available for your personal, internal, and non-commercial use. You may not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, re-sell, distribute, or otherwise exploit the Products, the Site or the Content.

The Hub is a hardware and software solution to track and administer a commuter incentive program in schools and businesses. The Products include a group web-page and individual profile on The Site, www.thehub.saris.com , showing commuting activity, as well as the hardware needed to capture commuting data. To participate in the application, you must register yourself or your child on the Site and accept and abide by the Terms and Conditions stated here.

Tracking of the commute occurs when the participant scans their card in front of the scanner box, or uses other logging systems explained to participants on The Hub Site. You agree that you or your child will not scan your card on days when you don't arrive to work or school using the mode of transport measured by The Hub.

A confirmation e-mail will be sent when the scan occurs. However, this email is not a confirmation of attendance at school or work, and does not replace the existing attendance systems at the place of employment or through the school.

Progress in the program can be viewed on the site, and you, or if you grant the child permission, the child, may access the site and follow the participant’s progress as well as view the group progress in the program.

Incentives and awards may be earned through participation in this program. However, these prizes are managed and obtained directly through the school or business, not through Saris Cycling Group.

PASSWORD

When a User registers as a participant and obtains an account, he or she will be asked to provide a password. Because a User will be responsible for all activities that generate from his or her account, and one can only access his or her account upon the transmission of the associated password, a User should keep that password strictly confidential at all times. A USER MUST NOTIFY SARIS CYCLING GROUP IMMEDIATELY OF ANY UNAUTHORIZED USE OF HIS OR HER PASSWORD OR IF HE OR SHE BELIEVES THAT PASSWORD IS NO LONGER CONFIDENTIAL. Saris Cycling Group reserves the right to suspend a User's account and/or require that such User alter his or her password if we believe for any reason that such User's password is no longer secure. A USER MAY NOT SHARE HIS OR HER HUB ACCOUNT PASSWORD WITH ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY REASON.

PAYMENT TERMS

A User agrees to pay any fees due for and incurred by their use of those select Products that require payment on the part of Users ("Paid Products") Fees for all Product will be communicated through product literature to all customers and potential customers.
