When you engage with the Headline Horizon Site, you bear complete responsibility for your actions and involvement. Certain features of our Site may necessitate registration or the creation of a username and password. It's vital that the details you provide during this registration are accurate and you are obligated to keep them current. Failure to maintain up-to-date information may lead to a breach of this Agreement, possibly resulting in the immediate termination of your account. You are prohibited from (i) selecting or using a username that impersonates another individual, and (ii) adopting a username that infringes on the rights of another party without their explicit consent. Headline Horizon retains the authority to decline or terminate a username based on its judgment. In instances where your registration is canceled, you must refrain from setting up another account or attempting to access Headline Horizon's services without our explicit approval. You are prohibited from selling, transferring, or assigning your registration or any associated rights. Any modifications in your registration details, inclusive of contact information, should be promptly communicated to us. Safeguarding the confidentiality of your password is your sole responsibility, making it crucial to avoid sharing it with anyone else. Misusing another member's account, username, email, or password is strictly forbidden, and you must ensure no one else has access to your account. Your account is exclusively yours and cannot be transferred. In case of any suspicious activity or unauthorized access, please notify Headline Horizon immediately.
Headline Horizon is designed primarily for individual and non-commercial engagement. We, at Headline Horizon, reserve the right to modify, pause, or terminate any aspect of the Site at our discretion. We may also introduce limitations on certain functionalities or restrict entry to specific sections or the entirety of the Site, potentially without prior notification. Please be aware that occasional disruptions might render the Site unavailable or non-functional due to reasons like: (i) technical issues; (ii) routine site maintenance or updates; or (iii) unforeseen circumstances beyond Headline Horizon's control.

Purchasing Headline Horizon Services or Products
When acquiring services, subscriptions, or products via Headline Horizon ('Platform Product'), you might be prompted to share vital information, such as your name, contact details, and financial credentials ('Billing Information').

Transactions, billing, and all payment responsibilities for Platform Products will be steered by the policies of the Service Provider. Purchases demand an affirmation that the payment method provided is legitimately yours. Buyers must be 18 or above. Headline Horizon neither guarantees nor assumes responsibility for any order-related losses or damages. We don't provide refunds and assume no responsibility concerning your Platform Product orders. Any transactions done with your Billing Information remain your accountability. We do not retain records related to your purchases, emphasizing the importance of you maintaining transaction records. If you spot any inconsistencies or suspect unauthorized activities linked to your Billing Information, it is imperative to reach out to the Service Provider.
