The use of SDES trademarks on any other web site or network computer environment is not allowed. SDES prohibits the use of SDES trademarks as a “hot” link on or to any other web site unless establishment of such a link is approved in advance. You will not use the Marks in any manner that could, in SDES’s judgment, imply SDES’s endorsement in any (a) written or oral advertising or presentation or (b) brochure, newsletter, book, or other written material of whatever nature, without SDES’s prior written consent.
  3. Account Registration and Security. You understand that you may need to create an account to have access to all of the parts of the Services. In consideration of your use of the Services, you will: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself and your business as prompted by the Services’ registration or subscription page (such information being the “Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or SDES has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, then SDES has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof). You are entirely responsible for the security and confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account.

You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security of which you become aware. You are responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the Services. We have the right to provide user billing, account, Content or use records, and related information under certain circumstances (such as in response to legal responsibility, lawful process, orders, subpoenas or warrants, or to protect our rights, customers, or business). Please note that anyone able to provide your personally identifiable information will be able to access your account, so you should take reasonable steps to protect this information. The Services may also include a tool that allows you to sign in or register using information from your account with a third party service, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, OpenID, or LinkedIn. These third-party services are unrelated to the Services, and your login using such third-party registration information and use of such third-party services is subject to the terms and policies of those services.
  4. Feedback and Comments. While we are pleased to receive feedback, comments and ideas from visitors to the Site, we want you to understand that any information that you submit through this website will be considered non-personal, non-confidential, and non-proprietary (other than personal information, as that term is defined in our Privacy Policy).

All such links are provided solely as a convenience to you. If you use these links, you will leave the Site. Neither we nor any of our respective affiliates are responsible for any content, materials, or other information located on or accessible from any other web site. Neither we nor any of our respective affiliates endorse, guarantee, or make any representations or warranties regarding any other web sites or any content, materials, or other information located or accessible from any other web sites, or the results that you may obtain from using any other web sites. If you decide to access any other web sites linked to or from the Site and Services, you do so entirely at your own risk.
  7. Transactional Partners. In some cases we partner with another company to co-promote their services within our Services. In these cases, you are transacting directly with the other party. On those pages, the transactional partners’ brand is clearly visible and their terms of service are posted. When using these partner pages, you are bound by partner terms of service in addition to remaining bound by SDES terms of service. When there is a conflict between these terms of service and the partner’s terms of service, these terms of service will prevail.

In addition, we may make changes in information about price and availability without notice. While it is our practice to confirm orders by email, the receipt of an email order confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of an order or our confirmation of an offer to sell a product or service. We reserve the right, without prior notice, to limit the order quantity on any product or service and/or to refuse service to any customer. We also may require verification of information prior to the acceptance and/or shipment of any order.
