The term "you" or "your" includes any of your subsidiaries, affiliates and employees, and your employer and any other entity on whose behalf you accept these Terms of Use. MicroSolved provides the Site subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms of Use.

In the event of any conflict, such additional or different notices, terms, and conditions will prevail over those on this page solely with respect to that particular portion or area of the Site, material, information, product, service, or other Content. To the extent that there is any conflict between these Terms and any valid written terms and conditions or agreements relating to products or services you have licensed or purchased or online services or tools you use or to which you subscribe, those other terms and conditions or agreements will govern.

You agree that MicroSolved shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site (or any portion thereof).

3. REGISTRATION, PASSWORD AND SECURITY

Whenever you provide us information on our Site, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information and (b) maintain and promptly update such information to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that the information is, untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, MicroSolved may without notice suspend or terminate your access to our Site and refuse any and all current or future use of our Site (or any portion thereof).

If any portion or area of our Site requires you to register or open an account you may also be asked to choose a password and a user name. Please select a password that would not be obvious to someone trying to guess your password, and change it regularly as an added precaution. We may refuse to grant you a user name that impersonates someone else, is or may be illegal, is or may be protected by trademark or other proprietary rights law, is vulgar or otherwise offensive, or may cause confusion, as determined by us in our sole discretion. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account identification. You agree to immediately notify MicroSolved of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. Without limiting any rights which MicroSolved may otherwise have, MicroSolved reserves the right to take any and all action, as it deems necessary or reasonable, to ensure the security of the Sites and your account, including without limitation terminating your account, changing your password, or requesting additional information to authorize transactions on your account. Notwithstanding the above, MicroSolved may rely on the authority of anyone accessing your account or using your password and in no event and under no circumstances shall MicroSolved be held liable to you for any liabilities or damages resulting from or arising out of (i) any action or inaction of MicroSolved under this provision, (ii) any compromise of the confidentiality of your account or password and (iii) any unauthorized access to your account or use of your password. You may not use anyone else's account at any time, without the permission of the account holder.

The security of your personally identifying information is important to us.

However, you understand and agree that such steps do not guarantee that use of the Site is invulnerable to all security breaches, and that MicroSolved makes no warranty, guarantee, or representation that use of any of our Site is protected from viruses, security threats or other vulnerabilities.

Your obligations contained in this Section 6 of these Terms with respect to Confidential Information do not apply to: (a) information which is now in or hereafter enters the public domain without any act or omission by you, or otherwise without a breach of these Terms by you; (b) information known to you prior to the time of disclosure by MicroSolved as long as such prior knowledge can be substantiated through written documentation; (c) information independently developed by you without any use or reference to the Confidential Information and without the participation of individuals who have had access to it as long as such independent development can be substantiated through written documentation; and (d) information disclosed in good faith to you without restrictions as to use or further disclosure by a third person legally entitled to disclose the same; or (e) subject to the following sentences, information disclosed pursuant to court order, judicial process, or otherwise as required by law or regulation, or as necessary to establish the rights of either party under these Terms. To the extent a disclosure of Confidential Information is necessary to establish the rights of either party, required by law, judicial order or other legal obligations, you must, prior to disclosing such Confidential Information, notify MicroSolved to allow us to seek a protective order or other appropriate relief and you must provide reasonable cooperation to us in our attempt to seek a protective order, at our cost. If a protective order is not obtained, you must disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information which your counsel advises is legally required to be disclosed.

7. CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

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 in good faith that materials hosted by MicroSolved infringe your copyright (for example, materials posted by MicroSolved on one of our Forums), you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow MicroSolved to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed by MicroSolved against you, the DMCA permits you to send MicroSolved a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to: 2330 Briggs Road, Columbus, Ohio 43223, Phone: (614) 351-1237 Fax: (614) 351-9015 E-mail: info@microsolved.com. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
