Subscriptions and Registration
Our Sites may be used and our Mobile Applications may be downloaded free of charge, however, certain Content (such as the E-Edition) may only be available to registered users or those with a valid subscription to one of our print publications. Certain features of our Digital Services will require you to register by providing your personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, or other information. For example, to place a classified advertisement on our Digital Service, you will need to complete a registration form provided by one of the service providers managing our Digital Service’s classified advertising (our “Classified Advertising Providers”). Because we have different Classified Advertising Providers for various categories of classified advertisements, it is possible that you may need to complete more than one classified advertisement registration form to place your ads in various categories. In addition, you may need to complete a different registration form to sign up to receive The Gazette e-mail newsletters, or for other purposes. You may also need to complete different processes to unsubscribe from certain email communications from different sites, or to delete or modify your registrations on different Digital Services.
If you wish to register on any of our Digital Services you agree to provide accurate, current and complete personal data and information about yourself (such as name, age, e-mail address, etc.) as required by the applicable registration form, and further agree that you will update such data to keep it accurate, current and complete. The Gazette reserves the right to suspend or terminate your use of the Digital Services if it discovers, or has a reasonable basis to believe that any of the data you have provided is inaccurate, incomplete or untrue. If you obtain a username and password from any Digital Service, you may not share your username and password with any other person or authorize any other person to use your username and password. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password. You agree to notify The Gazette immediately of any known or suspected unauthorized use of your username and password or any other breach of security. The Gazette cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect the confidentiality of your username and password.

Any Content uploaded, posted, submitted, or otherwise made available by individual users of the Digital Services, including without limitation classified ads, postings on message boards or blogs, or other content which does not originate with The Gazette (“User Content”), is the sole responsibility of the person who made such User Content available on the Digital Service. Under no circumstances will The Gazette be liable in any way for any User Content made available through the Digital Services by you or any third party.
