Terms and Conditions of Use
Please read this Terms and Conditions of Use carefully before using these Sites. By using the Sites, you accept and agree to the terms and conditions contained hereunder. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions (the “Terms”), please do not use the Sites. We may change the Terms from time to time, and it is your responsibility to review them periodically to make sure that you are current on the guidelines.
These Sites are operated by ePITsolutions Limited. The Sites offer Users (as defined below) access to information, resources and other content assets owned or licensed by ePITsolutions Limited.
Please note that all visitors and members in any category will be referred to hereafter as “User” in this Agreement.
Each User must be 18 years or older to establish a “Member Profile”. “Member Profile” means the account (the “Account”) registered to any User pursuant to the registration procedures for the Sites. The Terms of this Agreement apply to all Users. The User for any Member Profile Account is entirely liable for all activities conducted through that Account.
When you register yourself or your organisation as a Member of ePITsolutions Limited web Sites, you must provide the requested contact information and general information about you and your organisation. We will also ask you to create a Username and Password. This information allows us to maintain a Member Profile for each Member so that we have a better understanding of the needs of our Members. It helps us prioritise the development of our ePracticing offer to your needs. It also helps us adjust our services to your expectations and report your improvement requests to our partners.
We may use the information we collect during the registration process to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to the websites and new ePracticing developed by ePITsolutions Limited.
Non-transferability of Membership
As a registered Member of these Sites, ePITsolutions Limited grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-assignable, and non-transferable license to use and display the information offered by the Sites on any machine(s) of which you are the primary user. You acknowledge that you may not sublicense, transfer, sell, loan or assign this license or the Sites without written authorisation from ePITsolutions Limited. Any attempt to sublicense, transfer, sell, loan or assign the license may result in its immediate termination.
Intellectual Property Rights
The sites provide certain sites and benefits for registered Members and derive their revenue from the production and distribution of those Sites and benefits for the exclusive use of registered Members. Users of the Sites acknowledge that the duplication and/or redistribution of content, information, data, or other intellectual property gained through exclusive access to the Sites to any other party would be a violation of applicable copyright laws and therefore would cause harm to the Sites. Members hereby agree that duplication and/or redistribution of any materials to any non-member shall require prior written authorisation from a director of ePITsolutions. It is further agreed, that any specific instance in which written authorisation is granted by the Sites, does not authorise the Member to duplicate and/or redistribute any other material than that for which written authorisation was granted.
As part of the registration process each Member will select a Username and Password. You shall provide ePITsolutions Limited with accurate, complete, and updated information. You agree to notify ePITsolutions Limited by email at firstname.lastname@example.org of any known or suspected unauthorised use(s) of your User Account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorised disclosure of your Username and/or Password. You shall be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Password. Any fraudulent, abusive, or otherwise illegal activity may be grounds for termination of your User Account, at ePITsolution’ sole discretion, and you may be reported to appropriate statutory authorities.
Personal Information Security
ePITsolutions Limited implements a variety of standard web security measures to maintain the safety and security of your personal information. Of course any User who has not registered as a Member may use the Sites anonymously as a visitor, but any personal information you provide to become a Registered Member will be protected by secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems. We recommend that, if you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public (i.e., a University or library, etc.), you remember to close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your personal information.
Personal Information to Other Parties
ePITsolutions Limited does not sell or otherwise transfer email addresses or other general information that visitors voluntarily provide in any registration process. This information is collected and used to better understand Users’ use of the Sites and to support related transactions made on the Sites. ePITsolutions Limited may also use email addresses and other personally identifiable information to communicate with Users who initiate communications with ePITsolutions Limited.
ePITsolutions Limited may disclose your personally identifiable information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, a court order or other legal process. We may also disclose this information if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our terms of Sites or to protect the safety of our Users and the public.
Termination of Membership
ePITsolution’ membership is effective until terminated by either party. Paid memberships are effective until they expire, at which time they are terminated by either party. Although it is assumed that all memberships will remain active for one year, you may terminate your membership and your right to use the Sites at any time by sending a letter to ePITsolutions Limited on your company letterhead, stating your reasons for terminating. ePITsolutions Limited may terminate your account or access rights to these Sites immediately without notice, if in ePITsolutions’ sole discretion, you fail to comply with any term or provision of this Agreement. ePITsolutions Limited may terminate the Sites, or any element of the Sites, at any time without notice. Refunds will not be issued for cancelled or terminated memberships.
Third Party Links
In an attempt to provide increased value to Users, ePITsolutions Limited may provide various third party websites links from this websites. However, even if the third party is affiliated with ePITsolutions Limited, ePITsolutions Limited has no control over these linked Sites who may each have separate privacy and data collection practices, and which are independent of ePITsolutions Limited. Neither ePITsolutions Limited nor any of its affiliates and contractors, have any responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and no such party is responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. These linked Sites are only for your convenience and you therefore access them at your own risk.
