Terms & Conditions

Use of The 1939 Society’s Web site by any user (you) is subject to these Terms and Conditions of Service (the TOS). The 1939 Society may change the TOS from time to time without notice. Use of the Service after a change subjects you to the new terms of the TOS, which may be accessed on The 1939 Society’s Web Sites.

1. Description of Service

The 1939 Society currently provides users with access to a collection of resources and information on its Web sites, including The 1939 Society’s home sites, microsites, extranet sites, and future sites. You understand and agree that the Services are provided “AS-IS” and that The 1939 Society assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, misdelivery or failure to store any user data, communications or personalization settings. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Services, and that access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider or airtime charges). You are responsible for those fees, including fees associated with the display or delivery of any advertisements. In addition, you must provide and are responsible for all equipment necessary to access the Services.

2. Registration, User ID, and Password

Some parts of the Services are accessed and controlled by user ID and password. If you are required to access an area of the Services with your user ID and password, you agree that you will not allow any other person or entity to use your user ID and password to gain access to that part of the Service. You further agree to notify The 1939 Society if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your user ID and password. If you register and obtain a user ID and password, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or any other applicable jurisdiction. You must provide complete and accurate information about yourself when prompted by any Services registration form, and you must maintain and promptly update your registration data to keep it complete and accurate. The 1939 Society may suspend or terminate your account and refuse you any current or future use of the Service (a) if you provide any information that is not complete and accurate, or (b) if BINK has reasonable grounds to suspect that any information you provide is not complete and accurate.
