The Western Journal (WJ) Paid Memberships

By becoming a paid WJ Member (Member Level, Editor’s Club, 24-Hour Member Access or other levels we may add in the future or not previously mentioned), you agree to WJ’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. By subscribing, you are also opting in to receive communications from WJ. Taxes may apply on subscriptions. We reserve the right to show ads at any time.

The Service: WJ offers paid digital Memberships as shown at www.westernjournal.com/subscriptions. We retain the authority to change the accessibility and inclusion of features and benefits associated with our Memberships at any time, whether with or without prior notice. Periodically, we may introduce new features or benefits, the continuation of which is not guaranteed, and these additions may include advertising.

We may make changes to these Terms at any time and without notice on this section of our website. If you do not cancel services after the changes become effective, you agree to the changed terms.

Membership subscriptions are, by default, auto-renewing (except 24-Hour Access purchases) unless you cancel your Membership, at which point, will auto-renew at the beginning of each billing cycle unless a) you terminate your Membership, b) we cancel your subscription or c) we decline to renew your Membership.

We reserve the right to change Membership fees for any of our offerings at any time. If the regular amount of your Membership increases from the original rate, we will notify you in advance. If you cancel your subscription at that time, the cancellation will take effect at the end of the billing period. If you don’t cancel, you will be charged the new amount for your next billing period.

You can cancel your Membership to WJ at any time. First, log in to your account. Next, click the “Manage” button on the header of the website to view your account information. Under the “Library” tab, you can see your active subscriptions. Click the drop-down bar that says “Manage” and select “Cancel subscription.” A pop-up will ask for confirmation that you would like to cancel; click “Yes.” Cancellations will be effective at the end of your current billing period. Should you have any trouble attempting to cancel, please message us within your account or go to “Contact Us” and select “Question about my Western Journal Subscription.” You must cancel your subscription before it renews each billing period to avoid being billed the next period’s Membership fees. Cancellations only apply to future charges and you will not receive a refund for the current billing period.

We may terminate your Membership at our sole discretion and without any notice.

Your Membership fee is nonrefundable, except as mandated by applicable law. Should you decide to cancel your subscription, you won’t be eligible for any refunds or credits. Access to your subscription will continue until the end of the billing period. Refunds or credits may be issued at our discretion, and if provided at a specific time, there is no obligation to repeat the same in the future.

Transferability: In the event that WJ is sold or undergoes a change in ownership, your Membership is transferable to the new owner. This means that all rights and obligations under your Membership will continue under the new ownership, ensuring uninterrupted access to your Membership benefits and services.

Your Responsibilities: As a valued WJ Member, you acknowledge and agree to uphold certain responsibilities to ensure the smooth and secure use of our digital services. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information, including login credentials, and for promptly notifying us of any unauthorized access or suspicious activity related to your account. Additionally, you agree to adhere to community guidelines and terms of use, refraining from engaging in any activities that violate applicable laws or infringe upon the rights of others. By using WJ’s digital Memberships, you actively contribute to fostering a positive and respectful online environment. Failure to comply with these user responsibilities may result in actions such as account suspension or termination.

Governing Law: As a Delaware corporation, these Terms of Service and any disputes arising out of or related to your use of WJ’s digital Memberships shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflict of law principles. You agree that any legal action or proceeding arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the services shall be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in the State of Delaware, and you consent to the personal jurisdiction of such courts. In the event of any legal dispute, you waive any objection to the venue or inconvenient forum. This choice of governing law and venue is made with consideration to WJ’s status as a Delaware corporation.

Indemnification: By utilizing WJ’s digital Memberships, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless WJ, its affiliates, partners, officers, directors, employees, and agents from any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and costs, arising out of or related to your use of our services, any violation of these Terms of Service, or any breach of your representations and warranties herein. This indemnification extends to any third-party claims, and you expressly acknowledge your responsibility for promptly addressing and resolving any such claims. WJ reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, in which case you agree to cooperate fully with WJ in asserting any available defenses.

Severability: In the event that any provision or portion of these Terms of Service is determined to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect. The invalidity or unenforceability of any individual provision shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the other provisions within these Terms. Moreover, the parties agree to replace the invalid or unenforceable provision with a valid and enforceable provision that most closely aligns with the intent and economic effect of the original provision. This severability clause ensures that the overall purpose and integrity of these Terms are preserved to the maximum extent permitted by law.

Force Majeure: WJ shall not be liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under these Terms of Service if such failure or delay is caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, natural disasters, strikes, labor disputes, governmental actions, war, terrorism, pandemics, or any other events considered force majeure. In the event of such circumstances, WJ’s performance will be deemed suspended for the duration of the force majeure event, and WJ will make reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of the event. WJ reserves the right to terminate or modify its services in response to force majeure events, with notice to the extent possible. The parties agree to consult and cooperate in good faith to find a mutually satisfactory solution in the event of a force majeure occurrence.

WJ’s total liability for any claims arising under or in connection with these Terms of Service shall be limited to the amount paid by you for the specific digital Membership giving rise to the claim. This limitation of liability is applicable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
