Any links to a web page should be accessed at our own risk, as the Company makes no representations or warranties about the content, completeness, quality, or accuracy of any website.

Responsibility for Use of Site
I understand and agree that I am solely responsible for my actions and decisions to meet, connect, or use the online services of the Site. The Company does not perform psychological testing or background checks on individuals using the Site. Therefore, it’s vital to take reasonable precautions when meeting others, exchanging email, or giving out personal information, preferably in a public place.
I agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Company, its partners, employees, affiliates, agents, licensors, and service providers from any suits, claims, demands, causes of action, liabilities, damages, judgments, losses, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, due to my use of the Site or violation of this Agreement.
The information on the site is provided “as is” and “as available” for educational and informational purposes. The Company does not warrant the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of the information, and any reliance on it is at our own risk. Accessing the content and any subsequent actions or materials is up to the user, as the Company disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express, statutory, or implied, including but not limited to merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. In some jurisdictions, limitations or remedy for use might differ, in which case the discontinued of using the site is the additional right.
Limitation of Liability
The Company is not liable or responsible for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, damages, loss of business, lost profits, litigation, and the like, whether based on special, exemplary, punitive, or other legal theories, arising from or relating to the site, its use, or content. Users are advised of the possibility of such damages and that their sole remedy for dissatisfaction is to discontinue using the site. Additional rights under consumer laws or exclusion of implied warranties or limitations may apply if the agreement does not conflict.
Copyrights and Copyright Agent
If you believe your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or your intellectual property rights have been violated on the Site, you should send a notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998. This notice should include your electronic or physical signature, a description of the copyrighted work, the location of the infringing material, your address, telephone number, e-mail, a statement of good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, their agent, or the law, and a statement under penalty of perjury that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Right to Monitor
The Company reserves the right to monitor the Site but is not obligated to do so. Any materials posted in the public area may be removed if deemed offensive by the staff. However, it’s important to note that users are solely responsible for the use of information contained on the Site.
Feedback, Comments, and Testimonials
By giving feedback, emails, submissions, or surveys, I agree and give the Company the right to use these for marketing and promoting their services.
Use of Information
The Site and the Company offer services “as is” and “as available” without any warranty, express or implied. There is no guarantee that the services provided will be available, uninterrupted, or error-free, or that defects will be corrected.
Jurisdiction and Applicable Law
By using the Site, I agree that the laws of the state of Colorado, without regard to its conflicts of provisions, govern this Agreement and any dispute that might arise between me and the Company.
Any dispute must go through informal negotiations before binding arbitration. This excludes court and jury trials. The Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (AAA Consumer Rules) at adr.org will guide the process, including arbitration fees, arbitrator compensation, and submission of documents. Decisions will be made via phone, online, and will include a statement of reasons based on applicable law. Any award will be enforceable in Douglas County, Colorado, and is the sole remedy outside a lawsuit or class action lawsuit.
If any provision of this Agreement is adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, it shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Agreement remains in full force and effect.
In my years of navigating various agreements, I’ve learned the importance of the waiver provision. This part is vital; it’s where the company explicitly states that failing to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreement doesn’t constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Unless stated in writing and signed by an authorized representative, no waiver shall be considered valid. This protects both parties, ensuring no implicit waiver of rights just because one instance slipped by.
Moving to termination, this aspect is straightforward yet crucial. The Agreement allows the company to terminate the relationship at any time, without any prior notice or reason. This clause, often overlooked, gives companies flexibility in their operations, but as a user, it’s something to be aware of.
Relationship of the Parties
Lastly, the “Relationship of the Parties” section. Here, the relationship between the parties involved in the Agreement and the site is defined. It’s clearly construed that neither party shall be considered a partner, joint venturer, employee, or agent of the other. Neither holds the right nor authority to incur, assume, or create any warranty, liability, or obligation of any kind, whether express or implied, in the name or on behalf of the other. This is vital to understand, as it delineates that each party is intended to be independent contractors, solely responsible for their own actions.
