If notified by a user of Content which allegedly does not conform to these Terms and Conditions, the Company may investigate the allegation and determine in good faith and in its sole discretion whether to remove or request the removal of the Content. The Company has no liability or responsibility to users for performance or nonperformance of such activities. The Company reserves the right to expel users and prevent their further access to the Web Site for violating these Terms and Conditions or the law and the right to remove Content which is abusive, illegal, or disruptive.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your information and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your registration, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify the Company of any unauthorized use of your registration or password.

Thomson Reuters's Liability

The Company acts only as a venue for continuing professional education educators to post continuing professional education courses and products, for professionals to get customized information regarding their continuing education requirements and relevant courses and products that may fulfill those requirements based on information they (professionals) provided, and for employing organizations to track the continuing education status of their employees. The Company takes no responsibility for screening or censoring the postings made or information offered. The Company is not involved in the actual transactions between and amongst continuing education educators, professionals, and employer organizations. As a result, the Company has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the continuing education course or product information submitted, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of continuing education educators to offer courses to professionals or the ability of professionals to fill course vacancies. The Company is not liable for the cancellation or postponement of any continuing education course or the unavailability of any product for any reason. In addition, note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Web Site.

Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, the Company cannot and does not confirm that each user is who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings or control the behavior of participants on the Web Site, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release the Company (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code d1542, which says: A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.

We are under no legal obligation to, and generally do not, control the Content provided by other users which is made available through the Web Site. By its very nature, other people's information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. We expect that you will use caution and common sense when using this Web site.

The Web Site does provide a variety of Material regarding continuing professional education, including summaries of the continuing education requirements of a variety of jurisdictions, regulators, licensing authorities, certifying organizations, and the like. Furthermore, the Web Site uses a proprietary system to help users track their continuing education status and progress within the contexts of the continuing education requirements the users select. In many instances, the Web Site through its web pages or through e-mail messages may inform users that at a particular time they are in compliance with particular continuing education requirements or alternatively that they are not in compliance with particular continuing education requirements and therefore require a particular number of additional credits by a particular deadline in order to be in compliance. All of this information along with the Material and Content of the Web Site may contain inaccuracies or typographical errors. The Company makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of the Material or Content. The use of the Web Site, the Material, and the Content is at your own risk. Changes are periodically made to the Web Site and may be made at any time.

You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any data and personal or corporate information contained in your user profile, continuing education profiles, course profiles and any other profiles submitted and edited by you on the Web Site.
