ACCEPTANCE OF THE TERMS
BSI has the right, but not the obligation, to take any of the following actions without providing any prior notice to you:
- change or terminate all or any part of our Services;
- restrict or terminate your access to all or any part of our Services; or
- refuse, move, or remove any content that is available on the Site and any material that you submit to the Site.
ACCESS TO THE SITE
BSI is providing you with the information and functionality in the Site. You are responsible for providing all equipment necessary to establish a connection to the Internet, access to the Internet, and any telephone, wireless or other connection and service fees associated with such access. The Site is available only to individuals and entities who can form legally-binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, you must be 18 years of age or older to register for and/or use the Site. If you do not qualify, please do not use the Site. BSI reserves the right to deny access and/or registration to the Site to anyone at any time in its sole and absolute discretion.
In consideration of your use of the Site and/or the Services, you agree to be subject to certain obligations. For any personal information that you provide to us through the Site, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted and you further agree that you will not use the Site for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, incomplete or not current, or if BSI has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, incomplete or not current, BSI has the right to refuse any and all current or future use of the Site (or any portion thereof).
ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD SECURITY
BSI provides Site users with access to an online portal to use certain Services (the “Portal”) once such users select a password and account designation and complete a registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and are responsible for all activities that occur under your password and account. You further agree not to use anyone else's password on the Site. BSI cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision or any of the Terms.
LIMITS ON LIABILITY
BSI will not be liable for:
- the content of any website not controlled, owned, or operated by BSI that is accessed from or linked to this Site;
- the content, services or information provided by any website purporting to be operated by BSI or its affiliates, but not actually affiliated with, controlled, owned, or operated by BSI;
- any damages or injury caused by, including but not limited to, any failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, defect, delay in operation of transmission, computer virus, or line failure; and
- any direct, indirect, incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages arising out of or relating to use of or inability to use the Site, even if BSI has been advised of the possibility of such damages, including but not limited to, loss of profits, loss of data or loss of use damages. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the Site, or with any of these Terms, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site.
