This Agreement will become effective upon your acceptance of the Agreement by your use of the Site or the Services and will remain in effect in perpetuity unless terminated hereunder. Either you or ember may terminate your account at any time, for any reason or no reason, without explanation, effective upon sending written notice to the other party. ember reserves the right to immediately suspend or terminate your access to any of the Services, without notice, for any reason or no reason.

You may deactivate or delete your account by following the steps in the applicable section on the Settings page. Following the termination of any registered user, ember reserves the right to send a notice thereof to other registered users with whom the registered user has corresponded.
Cancellation At Any Time With No Refund. Except as otherwise stated in this section, you may cancel your registration or subscription to any Services at any time during the term of such registration or subscription or any renewal period by accessing the Settings page, clicking on "Deactivate Account", "Permanently delete account", “Account Details → Do not renew subscription”, etc., and providing the information requested.

In the case of “Do not renew subscription,” your subscription will terminate at the end of the subscription term for which you have paid, and you will not receive any refund for any unused days of such subscription term.
In order to provide continuous service, ember automatically renews all paid subscriptions for the Services on the date such subscriptions expire. We communicate renewal periods to you in the subscription plan page. By entering into this Agreement, you acknowledge that your account will be subject to the above-described automatic renewals. In all cases, if you do not wish your account to renew automatically, please follow the directions set out under "Cancellation At Any Time With No Refund" above. ember will not give you a refund for early cancellation, deactivation, or permanent deletion of your account.
Arbitration of Disputes. You and ember agree that any disputes arising out of or related to the Site, the Services, this Agreement and/or any policies or practices of ember (a “Dispute”) will be subject to FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION as set forth in this section, and may only be resolved through an individual arbitration governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. The only exceptions to this agreement to arbitrate Disputes are claims of infringement or misappropriation of ember’s copyright, patent, trade secret, trademark, service mark, trade dress or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, which ember may elect to have resolved by means other than arbitration. Notwithstanding the above, ember is always interested in attempting to resolve any Disputes by amicable and informal means, and we encourage you to contact us before resorting to arbitration. YOU AND EMBER AGREE THAT WE ARE EACH GIVING UP OUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT in connection with any Dispute, and that our rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR, NOT A JUDGE OR JURY.
No Class Actions. YOU AND EMBER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT NEITHER OF US WILL BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION OR OTHER CLASS PROCEEDING IN CONNECTION WITH ANY DISPUTE WITH THE OTHE PARTY. Further, neither you nor ember agrees to class arbitration or any arbitration where a person brings a dispute as a representative of other person(s).
Arbitration Procedure. If the parties are unable to resolve a Dispute by informal means, the arbitration of Disputes will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), a non-profit organization not affiliated with ember, in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and if deemed appropriate by the arbitrator, the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes.
Enforcement. Any proceeding to enforce this arbitration agreement may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction.
Limitation of Time Period to Commence a Dispute. Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, any Dispute must be filed within one (1) year after the date in which the incident giving rise to the Dispute occurred. Failure to file an arbitration claim as described above within the applicable limitations period constitutes a waiver of such claim and serves as complete bar to any claim based on any Dispute.
15. General Provisions
Right to Seek Injunction. Violation of this Agreement may cause ember irreparable harm, and therefore agree that ember will be entitled to seek extraordinary relief in court, including but not limited to temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions and permanent injunctions without the necessity of posting a bond or other security, in addition to and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies that ember may have for a breach of this Agreement.

17. ember Community Standards
Be kind and respectful. Personal attacks or hate speech will not be tolerated. When giving advice to other Members, please remember that honesty and kindness are NOT mutually exclusive.
Be welcoming, especially to newer members. It’s tough being the new kid on the block, so please be especially kind and welcoming to newcomers. Anyone being rude to newbies will be moderated.
Stay On Topic. Be sure to post your topics in the appropriate forum, and keep in mind that any off-topic banter which is disruptive to a thread’s discourse may be removed.
Keep it clean. Profane or obscene language or photos, or attempts to bypass our moderation filters will result in your entire post being removed. Be sure to read our photo guidelines before posting any images on our site.
Report, don’t reply. If you believe you have been personally attacked, report it to us and let our team handle it. Replying in kind only escalates the situation — so don’t do it, or you too may incur moderation activity against you. Here’s information about how to report a post on our boards.
No posting complaints about moderation. Posts complaining about moderation activity taken against you are not allowed on our boards, will be removed and may incur additional moderation activity against you. If you feel there is a relevant global issue about moderation that should be discussed as an ember Community, you are encouraged to contact ember.
Respect the ember staff and our Member-Moderators. While we appreciate legitimate feedback about our service and website, any post containing derogatory comments about ember staff or members of our Member-Moderator team is considered a personal attack will be removed.
Do your best to communicate as clearly as possible. Text isn’t always a great medium for conversation: tone of voice – sarcasm, humor, etc. do not always come across when using words on a screen. Be aware that you may be misunderstood, so try to be very clear about what you are saying. Also, don’t type in all CAPS, as your readers may consider this shouting. Divide your posts into paragraphs for easy reading, and go easy on the abbreviations, (ROTFL, YT? OMG) as this may limit your effectiveness communicating with some ember users (also known as “ember members”).
One account per person. While we will make rare exceptions for Members who need to share something they consider too private for their regular username, if any Member is found to be posting under two accounts for the purposes of harassing, deceiving or otherwise injuring the ember Community, both accounts will be revoked. Also, any banned Member who returns under a new account will also have the new account revoked.
Our goal is to create and maintain a pleasant and welcoming environment for everyone. To that end, we reserve the right to remove any post, thread or ember member whom we deem to be in violation of the ember Community Standards or of detriment to the spirit of our ember Community.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation in following our ember Community Standards – by doing so you help make the ember Advice ember Community a great place to be!
