You may consult this Site and, subject to express restrictions or limitations on specific items on the Site, you may make an electronic copy, download, or print the Content of the Site for your exclusive personal use and not for any commercial purpose, provided you keep all copyright and other notices of ownership it contains. It is strictly prohibited to copy, reproduce, publish, post, transmit, distribute, modify, re-use the Content or publish or sell the Content of the Site without the prior written and explicit consent of the BTMM.

Harassment, regardless of the nature, in particular the use of obscene or abusive language, is strictly prohibited on this Site.

In addition, you may not download, disseminate, or post any documents or messages on this Site that are defamatory, obscene, threatening or abusive; that undermine the privacy of any persons; that are otherwise unacceptable; or that violate the rights of any individuals. You may not download any promotional messages onto the Site nor use the Site to encourage anyone to join or become a member of any online commercial service or organization. We can, at our sole discretion, add, delete, or modify part or all of the Content of the Site at any time and without prior notice.

The data and information available on the Site does not replace advice given by your advisers. This information has been deemed to be reliable at the time of presentation on the Site.

COPYRIGHT AND TRADEMARKS

The BTMM holds intellectual property rights to the Content on the Site, or has obtained from the holder of the intellectual property rights of this Content permission to use it on the Site. With the exception of what is provided for in these Terms and Conditions of Use, you are prohibited from republishing or reproducing the Content appearing on the Site without the prior written and explicit consent of the BTMM. Nonetheless, the BTMM hereby authorizes you to display on your computer, download, and print pages from the Site, subject to the following terms: (i) the copyright notice must appear on all such printed documents, (ii) the Content must not be otherwise modified, and (iii) the Content must only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes, and must not be copied, published, or re-distributed in any other medium.

The trademarks and logos posted on this Site (collectively, the “Trademarks”) are the property of the BTMM and third parties.

It is strictly prohibited to use, except as provided for or permitted in this notice, a trademark or other element of Content appearing on the Site. The absence of a trademark or other corporate name of the BTMM on this Site does not constitute a waiver of the intellectual property rights that the BTMM holds with respect thereto.

LINKS

We may make available links to other websites that are owned or operated by third parties (the “Links”). Since we have no affiliation with these third parties, we have no control over these sites, whose information-gathering and personal information protection practices are different from and are independent of ours. Consequently, we will therefore not be held liable for and do not offer any warranties as to the accuracy, currency, or completeness of the content on such sites.

The inclusion of links on our Site should not imply that we approve, sponsor, endorse, or are associated with such sites or their owners or operators, nor that we are authorized to use the trademarks, business names, service marks, images, logos, symbols, or other copyright-protected elements contained on such sites or accessible through such sites. However, you are entitled to send us your comments on the links found on our Site.

DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

Although we strive to provide Content that is up-to-date and accurate on the Site, errors or omissions may occur, and problems may arise. As a result, the Site and its Content are provided “as is,” without any guarantees, whether express or implied, as to the accuracy, reliability, or permanent availability of the Site and the Content. THE BTMM SHALL THEREFORE NOT BE HELD LIABLE IN CONNECTION WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE HEREWITH, THE SITE, ALL CONTESTS, ACTIVITIES, CONTENT, OR SERVICES CARRIED OUT OR OFFERED ON THE SITE OR BY THE BTMM. YOUR USE OF THE SITE, ALL CONTENT, ACTIVITIES, CONTESTS, OR SERVICES CONDUCTED OR OFFERED ON THE SITE OR BY THE BTMM ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK, ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OR CONDITION.

In no event shall the BTMM, its directors, officers, employees, mandataries, representatives, or licensees be liable with respect to any claim, loss, cost, expense, fine, penalty, or damage of any nature whatsoever, including direct, indirect, special, incidental, collateral, punitive, exemplary, or similar damages, notably loss of data, business, income, products, or contracts, following or incidental to the use of the Site or any use of Content and services available or mentioned on the site, even if the BTMM and these people have been advised of the possibility of such damages or that such damages are reasonably foreseeable.

You agree to, at all times, exonerate, indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the BTMM, its directors, officers, employees, mandataries, and representatives with respect to any legal action, demand notice, action for liability, costs and related expenses, including judicial and extrajudicial fees incurred by the BTMM stemming from your use of or access to this Site.
