  2. User’s Acceptance of Terms of Use

    These Terms of Use shall govern your access, visits and use of the Solver Site. There may be certain areas of the Solver Site or Community Groups where access is subject to eligibility requirements and/or include specific or supplemental terms of use, in addition to those set forth here (“Supplemental Terms of Use”). If there is a conflict between these Terms of Use and any Supplemental Terms of Use, then the Supplemental Terms of Use shall govern your use and access of that particular area of the Solver Site. All Supplemental Terms are hereby incorporated into these Terms of Use by this reference.

    By accessing the Solver Site or by registering for a Solver Account, you are subject to the Terms of Use. If you do not agree to all of the Terms of Use, you should not access, visit or participate in the Solver Site. If you breach any of the Terms of Use or any Supplemental Terms of Use, your authorization to use the Solver Site (including any Community Group) automatically terminates and you agree to immediately destroy any material you obtained from the Solver Site (other than Solver Solutions validly licensed from a third party) or derived from material you obtained from the Solver Site.

    Solver reserves the right to modify, suspend or terminate the Solver Site or any area within the Solver Site, including the Solver Community and/or these Terms of Use from time to time at its sole discretion and without notice. Solver will post any modified Terms of Use on the Solver Site. Solver may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts of the Solver Site without notice or liability. You should periodically check the Terms of Use for such changes. Solver may, but is not obligated to notify you of such changes. Your continued use of any part of the Solver Site after Solver posts such changes to the Terms of Use (regardless of whether Solver has specifically notified you of such changes) shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the revised Terms of Use.

    Solver will not be liable to you or any third-party for any claims or actions arising or resulting from your use, visit, or participation in the Solver Site and for any modification, suspension, or termination of the Solver Site, or termination of your access to your Solver Account.

    In order to grant Solver and other users of the Solver Site the rights, permissions and licenses contained herein, you represent and warrant that you either own or have all the necessary intellectual property rights in the Contributions and that your Contributions do not violate any intellectual, industrial or other proprietary rights of others. Do not post, upload, submit or otherwise provide Contributions that are protected by any rights of others, unless you have the necessary rights or licenses to use and fully exploit such Contributions as contemplated in these Terms of Use.

    You acknowledge and agree that all Contributions are provided on a non-confidential basis notwithstanding any designation or notation of confidentiality. Solver is under no obligation to and does not control the Contributions created, provided or uploaded to the Solver Site. The nature of some Contributions may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate, and in some cases will be mislabeled or deceptively labeled. Solver reserves the right to take down and remove Contributions that are flagged by users or deemed by Solver as objectionable. However Solver is under no duty to monitor, take down or remove any Contributions.

  7. Blogs

    Blog authors and blog users (hereinafter “Bloggers”) who post blog entries, comments or other Contributions are expected to adhere to conduct as set forth in Section 4 above. Bloggers may create blogs generally discussing Solver products and services. Although Solver respects the freedom of Bloggers and the Contributions they post, blogs that predominantly discuss topics completely unrelated to Solver or that consume excessive resources or bandwidth may be taken down at the sole discretion of Solver. Generally it is suggested that Bloggers take responsibility not just for their own words, but for the comments allowed on their blogs; label their tolerance level for abusive comments; consider eliminating anonymous comments; ignore the trolls (i.e., those who intentionally post derogatory or otherwise inflammatory messages); take the conversation offline, and talk directly, or find an intermediary who can do so; if you know someone who is violating the conduct guidelines, tell them so; and don’t say anything online that you wouldn’t say in person. Bloggers understand that they bear the full responsibility of any Contributions they post and that such Contributions may lead to adverse consequences in their personal or professional lives, such as damaged friendships or loss of employment.

  8. Third Party Web Sites, Content, Products and Services

    The Solver Site may contain links to web sites and access to Contributions, content (including opinions, advice, statements and advertisements), products and services from third parties (collectively “Third Party Content”).

You agree that Solver is not responsible for the availability of any such Third Party Content. You should refer to the policies posted by other web sites regarding privacy and other topics before you use them. You understand that you bear all risks associated with the access to and use of such Third Party Content.
