Terms of Use





This subscriber agreement governs your use of the Ketchikan Daily News Web site, and, unless other terms and conditions expressly govern, any other electronic services for Pioneer Printing Co., Inc., that might be made available from time to time.

  1. Changes to subscriber agreement. We may change the terms of this agreement at any time by notifying you of the change in writing or electronically. The changes also will appear in this document.
  2. Privacy. Subscription data and other information about you are subject to our privacy policy. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Pioneer Printing Co., Inc., acquires Web site service, and by subscribing to the site, you consent to the transfer of information outside of your country.
  3. Fees and payments. You can always find the current subscription fees in the “Manage Your Account” area of the site. You agree to pay the subscription fees and any other charges incurred (including any applicable taxes) in connection with your user name and password for using the site at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving you notice in advance. All charges will be billed automatically through PayPal. You are responsible for any fees or charges incurred to access the site through an Internet access provider or other third-party service.

All subscriptions are between an individual and us, and not with businesses, government or other entities. A business, government or other entity may pay for a subscription. But only the employee who subscribed is entitled to access the site using the user name and/or password.

  1. Renewal. Your subscription will renew automatically, unless we terminate it or you notify PayPal (if you are an online only subscriber.) Print subscribers would notify us by telephone, mail, or e-mail. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term to your credit card.
  2. Limitations of use.
  3. Only one individual may access the site at the same time using the same user name or password, unless another agreement is otherwise understood.
