Terms of Service
Thank you for visiting our GovX.com Web site, which includes its related subdomains, services, websites, and tools ("Site"), owned and operated by GovX. "GovX" or "we," "us," "our" and similar references, as used herein, refer to GovX, Inc., and its subsidiaries, divisions and affiliates. While you can access some portions of the Site without becoming a Member (See the Membership section, below, for Membership definitions, qualifications and requirements), you will not be able to view the special pricing and actually purchase products through our special pricing relationships with our vendor-suppliers (“Vendor-Partners”) on our e-commerce marketplace or take advantage, through secured links, of privileged pricing and special deals from our participating affiliate companies (“Affiliate-Partners”) through our GovX Advantage Program, and access certain other features. Membership is considered a privilege reserved for current, veterans, reserve or retired members in good standing of the U.S. military and other qualifying government agencies. We offer not only popular brands but also new and “discoverable” brands we believe have special appeal to our Members. GovX Members must not only register, they will undergo a verification process to confirm they are an active, reserve or retired member of the U.S. Military or other qualifying government agency or a member of a U.S. Military branch association or government trade association or union that is an association partner of GovX (“Association-Partner”) and must maintain such Association-Partner membership status, in good standing, throughout their Membership.
1. Use of the Site.
Access to and use of password protected and/or secure areas of the Site is restricted to Member users only. Unauthorized individuals attempting to access these areas of the Site may be subject to prosecution.
Membership in the Site is available to persons who are 18 years and older, who have properly registered, and whose registration and proof of (i) a qualifying federal, state or local government employment or retirement status has been accepted and verified by us, (ii) are members in good standing with a GovX Association–Partner, or (iii) the spouse of a registered GovX Member through our spouse account invitation and approval program, and who have not been suspended or removed by GovX for any reason (a "Member," or “Membership”).
By completing a Membership Application, You agree that GovX may utilize the information provided by you, including identification information and documents, to verify your current and/or veteran/retired status with the associated U.S. Military or Federal, state or local government agency, GovX Association-Partner, directly or through a government employee identification service, or status as a spouse of a Member (collectively, “Verification Sources”). You further agree that GovX may reaffirm or re-verify your status with the Verification Sources as needed or required.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer and you are liable for all activities that occur under your account or password. You agree to immediately notify us in the event of any unauthorized use of your account or other breach of security.
3. Additional Terms and Conditions.
4. Limitations and Product Liability.
The Vendor-Partner or Affiliate-Partner is the provider of the goods and/or services that you purchase through the Site and, as such, the Vendor-Partner or Affiliate-Partner shall be fully responsible for any and all loss or damage of any kind, including personal injury or death, (whether in tort, contract, or strict liability) arising out of or related to the purchased product or service. GovX does not process the purchase, payment of or shipping related to any product or service you purchase from any Vendor-Partner or Affiliate-Partner. GovX is not liable for any purchase, payment or shipping errors, damage, harm or losses, and is not responsible for the payment processing or security of any of its Vendor-Partners or Affiliate-Partners. Your transactions and interactions with any Vendor-Partner or Affiliate-Partner are governed solely by their respective purchase, warranty, return and other policies. You waive all claims against and release GovX and its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, subsidiaries, divisions, distributors, and suppliers (other than Vendor-Partners and Affiliate-Partners), from any liability or responsibility for any harm, damages or losses arising out of your purchase of products or services on the Site or otherwise from Vendor-Partners or Affiliate-Partners. If you have problems with our Vendor-Partners, Affiliate-Partner or their goods, services and/or experiences provided, or to be provided, in connection with a purchase, we will use reasonable efforts to assist you in dealing with them.
GOVX MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO GOODS OR SERVICES PURCHASED ON THE SITE OR THROUGH ANY LINK ON THE SITE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

5. Member Postings, Testimonials and Reviews.
The Site may provide Members with the ability to send testimonials to us, to post messages and reviews of products and services on the Site and provide other information, materials or opinions. You are solely responsible for your account, password, profile, messages, notes, text, information, opinions, testimonials, reviews, ideas and any other content you post, upload, submit, publish, or display (hereinafter "post") on or through the Site, or transmit to or share with other Members (collectively, the "Member Content"). Any Member Content that is posted is public and will not be treated as confidential. GovX has the right but not the obligation to monitor and decline, edit, or remove (without notice) all or any portion of any Member Content for any reason or no reason. If GovX chooses at any time, in its sole discretion, to monitor Member Content, it still has no responsibility for the Member Content or for the conduct of the Member posting the Member Content or to edit or remove any Member Content, except as required to comply with copyright or other applicable laws. If you are involved in a dispute with one or more Members of GovX, you release GovX and its Vendor-Partners and Affiliate-Partners (including our and their officers, directors, employees and agents) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind arising out of or in any way connected to any dispute.
When you post or otherwise make available any Member Content for inclusion on any part of the Site, you are hereby granting GovX an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, transmit, reproduce, adapt, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part), create collective works and distribute such Member Content for any purpose, commercial, advertising, or otherwise, on or in connection with the Site or the promotion thereof, or for GovX’s business, including without limitation, for promoting and redistributing part or all of the Site (and derivative works thereof) in any media or distribution method (now known or later developed), to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such Member Content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing. For this reason, do not post or otherwise make available to us any Member Content that you do not wish to license to us. You represent and warrant that you will not provide any Member Content to which you do not have the full right to grant the license specified in this Section. You waive all “moral rights” and similar rights in the Member Content which may be available to you in any part of the world and confirm that no such rights have been asserted. You represent and warrant to GovX that GovX is free to exercise its rights to and/or implement your Member Content if it so desires, without obtaining permission or license from any third party and without reference or compensation to you or any other person.

12. International Use.
We do not make shipments outside the United States other than through APO/ FPO addresses and, therefore, make no representation that information or products on this Site are appropriate or available for use or export outside the United States.

13. Risk of Loss.
The items purchased from our Site are shipped by a third party carrier pursuant to a shipment contract. As a result, risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our Vendor-Partner’s delivery to the carrier. We and our Vendor-Partners will assist you in initiating a claim under such shipping arrangements.
14. Unavailability of Site; Termination; Fraud.
15. Copyright Infringement; Notice and Take Down Procedures.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that any materials on this Site infringe your copyright, you may provide written notice of such and request that they be removed. To be effective, this notice and request must contain certain elements specified by the DMCA, which include bearing a signature (or electronic equivalent) of the copyright holder or an authorized representative, and (a) identifying the allegedly infringing materials; (b) indicating where on the Site the infringing materials are located; (c) providing your name and contact information; (d) stating that you have a good faith belief that the materials are infringing; (e) stating that the information in your claim is accurate; and (f) indicating that "under penalty of perjury" you are the lawful copyright owner or are authorized to act on the owner's behalf. If you believe that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send this Site a counter-notice. The above is just a summary of the notice and counter-notice requirements and notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for further information. Our designated agent for copyright issues relating to this Site (including the notices and counter-notices) is Legal@govx.com .
