OurGov is a business-to-business software platform that allows its subscribers to access government lobbying and policy information about legislative and regulatory proposals in the Wisconsin State Legislature (“the Services”).
By subscribing to the Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms without limitation or qualification. If you are subscribing to the Services on behalf of an organization, you acknowledge that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms, and, in subscribing to the Services on behalf of that organization, agree to bind that organization by these Terms without limitation or qualification. If you are agreeing on behalf of an organization, “you” and “your” as used in the Terms will refer to that organization.
By agreeing to these Terms, you are representing to us that you are over 18 years old.
Please read these Terms of Service (“the Terms”) carefully because they form an enforceable and binding contract between you and OurGov LLC (“we” and “us”), collectively “the Parties” and each, individually, a “Party”.
You may use the Services only in compliance with these Terms and only if you have the power to form a contract with us and are not barred under any applicable laws from doing so.

THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”, AT YOUR OWN RISK, WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND. WE ALSO DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONTENT THAT YOU DOWNLOAD OR OTHERWISE OBTAIN THROUGH THE USE OF THE SERVICES OR FOR ANY DAMAGE OR LOSS OF DATA THAT MAY RESULT. WE DO NOT WARRANT, ENDORSE, GUARANTEE, OR ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY THIRD-PARTY APPLICATION OR SERVICE THAT PROVIDES ACCESS TO CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH OUR SERVICES.

IN NO EVENT SHALL WE OR OUR PARTNERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY GENERAL, DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY LOSS OF OPPORTUNITY, BUSINESS, PROFIT, REVENUE OR ROYALTIES, HOWEVER CAUSED AND WHETHER ARISING UNDER CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, INFRINGEMENT OR OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY, EVEN IF WE OR OUR PARTNERS HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
The Parties shall first submit any dispute to the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) for mediation in accordance with its Commercial Mediation Procedures, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested. If the Parties cannot resolve any dispute for any reason, including, but not limited to, the failure of either Party to agree to enter into mediation or agree to any settlement proposed by the mediator, within thirty days after the mediation, either Party may then commence binding arbitration in accordance with the provisions of section 9.
The Parties shall settle any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or the breach thereof, that is not settled in mediation, by binding arbitration administered by the AAA in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules.
This Agreement is governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Wisconsin, without reference to its conflict of laws provisions or rules of construction concerning the draftsman hereof.
These Terms (including the Policy) are the entire and exclusive agreement between you and us with respect to the Services, and supersede and replace any other agreements, terms and conditions applicable to the Services. These Terms create no third-party beneficiary rights. Our failure to enforce a provision is not a waiver of our right to do so later.
If a provision of the Terms is found unenforceable, the remaining provisions of the Terms will remain in full effect and an enforceable term will be substituted reflecting our intent as closely as possible.
You shall pay all third-party judgements against us, including reasonable attorney’s fees and any court costs, that arise from you infringing a third party’s intellectual property rights in relation to your use of the Services.
You shall not use the Services to compete commercially or otherwise with us, such as by using the knowledge you gained by engaging with the Services to create a similar product or service and sell such product or service in commerce.
