Account Access; Identity Protection
In order to provide you with ease of access to your account and to help administer the ShuGr Media service, ShuGr Media implements technology that enables us to recognize you as the account holder and provide you with direct access to your account without requiring you to retype any password or other user identification when you revisit the ShuGr Media service. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the truth and accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to your account.
You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your device. If you disclose your password to anyone or share your account and/or devices with other people, you take full responsibility for their actions. Where possible, users of public or shared devices should log out at the completion of each visit. If you sell or return a device, you should logout and/or deactivate the device before doing so. If you fail to log out or deactivate your device, subsequent users may access the ShuGr Media service through your account and may be able to access certain of your account information.
If you find that you’re a victim of identity theft and it involves a ShuGr Media account, you should notify Customer Service. Then, you should report this instance to all your card issuers, as well as your local law enforcement agency. Also, you should be mindful of any communication requesting that you submit credit card or other account information. Providing your information in response to these types of communications can result in identity theft. Always access your sensitive account information by going directly to the ShuGr Media website and not through a hyperlink in an email or any other electronic communication, even if it looks official. ShuGr Media reserves the right to place any account on hold anytime with or without notification to the member in order to protect itself and its partners from what it believes to be fraudulent activity. ShuGr Media is not obligated to credit or discount a membership for holds placed on the account by either a representative of ShuGr Media or by the automated processes of ShuGr Media.

Claims of Copyright Infringement
It is the policy of ShuGr Media to respect the intellectual property rights of others. ShuGr Media does not condone the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of copyrighted content. If you believe your work has been reproduced or distributed in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or are aware of any infringing material available through the ShuGr Media service, please notify us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At ShuGr Media, we expect that our world-class will be able to resolve most issues you may have using the ShuGr Media service. In the unlikely event that we do not meet your satisfaction, we prefer to specify now what each of us should expect in order to avoid any confusion later. Accordingly, you and ShuGr Media agree to the following resolution process.
Because we prefer to resolve our issues with you directly, you agree to arbitrate with ShuGr Media only in your individual capacity, not as a representative or member of a class. As such, your claims may not be joined with any other claims and there shall be no authority for any dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or brought by a purported class representative.
Rather than force everyone to visit us, if you can demonstrate that arbitration in North Carolina would create an undue burden to you, you are free to initiate the arbitration in your home state. Otherwise, the arbitration hearings will be held in Wake County, North Carolina.
It is important that you understand that the arbitrator’s decision will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the arbitrator rules against ShuGr Media, we will not reimburse your attorneys’ fees and costs.
If you’re not sure what all of this means, of course please feel free to ask an attorney.
Since we always prefer to find ways to satisfy you as quickly and efficiently as possible, before initiating any arbitration proceeding, you agree to first discuss the matter informally with ShuGr Media for at least 30 days. To do that, please send your full name and contact information, your concern and your proposed solution by email to us at: email@example.com.
Specifying what happens if an issue arises with one of our users is never a fun topic. But we pride ourselves on transparency and we thank you in advance for understanding why it’s important that you and ShuGr Media agree on the process described in this section.
