You may also have opportunities to participate in our polls, surveys, discussion threads, forums, or the like. You may have the ability to interact with and share experiences with us or other users.
You may also provide feedback or input to us directly in certain areas of the Sites, such as where comments are permitted.

Unauthorized use of the Sites or the content is strictly prohibited.
While there are many permitted uses of the Sites as detailed above, not all uses are permitted.
You may not download or copy our information yourself and you may not employ any automated device, software tools, harvester, extractor, scraper, spider, robot, program, code, script, algorithm or methodology, or any similar or equivalent manual process, to access, acquire, or copy the Sites or any portion thereof, or any Content.

Any effort to remove, replace or obscure such marks is a violation of our Terms of Service.
The prohibition on removing copyright and similar notices apply to any downloadable files that may be provided on the Sites, even where we give you permission to share those files with others.

Any other trademarks or service marks used or mentioned herein, whether or not registered, are the property of their respective owners. Permission for the use of any third-party mark should be obtained from the owner.
For purposes herein, discussion or commentary that may involve federally registered trademark names, or names protected under the common law is believed to be nominative use that is permissible and not subject to restriction.
We are always looking to improve our products and services. We welcome your ideas, suggestions, and comments for improvements, or new products or services. We accept all unsolicited ideas, suggestions, and feedback solely on an unrestricted basis, meaning that we are not limited in how we utilize, implement, or commercialize the ideas, suggestions, or feedback. Our acceptance of your voluntarily submitted ideas, suggestions, or feedback is not an acknowledgment or admission that anything in the idea, suggestion, or feedback is original to you. Unless we have agreed otherwise in writing prior to your submission, you understand that we own all rights to any improvement(s) or new product(s) we make, whether or not they incorporate or appear to incorporate (in whole or in part) any idea, feedback or suggestion you have provided. You agree to relinquish and/or assign any right, title, or interest in such a suggestion that you might otherwise retain. You agree that our review and consideration of your idea, suggestion, or feedback, and/or our implementation or development thereof (in whole or part), as well as your access or continued access to the software, product, or service, are adequate compensation for your assignment thereof. Do not submit any ideas, suggestions, or comments unless you understand and accept the foregoing.
External Links, Affiliate Relationships and Marketplaces
We may provide various links to external sites that provide useful resources, products, or services that we believe may be useful to you, valuable for your business, or just worth exploring. In some cases, we may recommend a product or service, while in other cases we may merely suggest that you check it out or consider whether that product or service is useful for you.
Sometimes we’ll provide hyperlinks (or “links”) that will direct you to or connect you with other websites that are not related to the Sites.
Unless we say otherwise, our decision to provide links to external or third-party sites does not necessarily imply affiliation, endorsement, or adoption of those sites, any information contained therein, or any products or services offered on the sites. We do not and cannot guarantee that the information or other material linked is accurate, current, or available. You understand that we assume no responsibility or liability for any external links or any content on such third-party sites, and you agree that we are not responsible whatsoever for any actions you take there, including any purchases. We likewise make no claims regarding and accept no responsibility for third-party sites that link to our Sites.
Even where we expressly endorse a product or service (which endorsement may be based on the personal or professional opinion of one or more persons), you understand that our position or opinion on the product or service is based on those factors we have considered and that we do not have the ability to evaluate or opine on the quality, price, advisability, suitability, need, or satisfaction that you may experience with such products or services. You should always do your own due diligence on any product or service prior to purchasing, to determine if it is right for you, whether or not we recommend it.
In some cases, we may have an affiliate relationship with a third-party site or service provider mentioned on the Sites and may be compensated (e.g. receive a valuable benefit or even a commission) if you visit and/or purchase a product or service from the affiliated site. We will generally endeavour to identify any such relationships so that you understand that even though we endorse a particular product or service, we also may be compensated in some way if you choose to do business with the recommended business or site. However, you should assume that we do have such a relationship – and that we will be compensated if you purchase a product or service. Moreover, while many people would like us to endorse or recommend their products, we will never endorse or recommend any product or service we do not believe in, that is not of good quality, or which we do not think can provide benefits for you, regardless of potential compensation. However, if the possibility of us receiving compensation is not agreeable to you, please do not buy through any link on the Sites. Our products and services, including those that are available through the Sites, may also be offered by or through third-party affiliates who are compensated by us, for example, if you purchase a product or service from us. While we are responsible for claims we have made regarding our software, products or services, we cannot be held responsible for any claims made by third parties. Moreover, those third parties may promise the inclusion of various bonuses or additional products or services.
If those bonuses, products, or services are a part of our offer, we are responsible for delivering or providing them and will do so. If the third-party affiliate has offered additional bonuses, products, or services that are not a part of our offer, you should contact them regarding delivery, or support issues for those bonuses, products, or services.
We endeavour to be selective in the people or companies we allow to promote our products or services. If you believe that you have been promised bonuses, products, or services from a third party claiming to be our affiliate who does not follow through or deliver the promised bonuses, products, or services, and if you have been unsuccessful in resolving the issue, we would appreciate hearing about it. Problems can arise, and while we cannot take responsibility for such problems, if we see a pattern of problems with an affiliate we will determine if we should allow them to promote our products or services in the future.
We have set up different marketplaces for our customers to list, advertise, promote and sell their products and services to other users.
Those products and services are not created by, offered by, endorsed by or controlled by us. We are not responsible in any way for the quality, content, nature, applicability, or reliability of them. If you choose to purchase, register, download or to engage with any of those products or services, or with their providers, you should be aware that we do not and cannot guarantee that the information or material provided is accurate, current, or available. You understand that we assume no responsibility or liability for any content, and you agree that we are not responsible whatsoever for any actions you take there, including any purchase or arrangement with the product/service providers.
You should always do your own due diligence on any product or service prior to purchasing, to determine if it is right for you and whether the product/service provider is a reputed user.

If you have access to the Sites from a location outside Canada, you and you alone are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws of your jurisdiction. Accessing the Sites from any country where the contents are deemed illegal or where they are contrary to regulations is prohibited and definitely not recommended by us, as we do not fancy prisons, foreign or domestic.

You are responsible for compliance with local laws and/or the consequences of violating such laws or regulations.
Your continued access or use of the Sites is your acceptance of the foregoing Terms of Service in their entirety.
