I. Privacy of Your Information
The Online Community is password-protected to allow access by registered Members only. Although this precaution should effectively protect any personal information available through the Online Community from abuse or outside interference, a certain degree of privacy risk is faced any time information is shared over the Internet. Therefore, through the Online Directory feature of the Online Community, you have the ability to hide your information from being viewed by other community Members.
II. Policy and Guidelines for Proper Use
To safeguard the security and operation of the Online Community, Harris and the Institution have adopted certain guidelines and policies that are used to govern conduct within the Online Community.
A. Unauthorized copying, reproduction, republishing, uploading, downloading, posting, transmitting or duplicating any of the material is prohibited. You may download or copy any downloadable materials displayed on the Online Community for home, noncommercial and personal use only; provided, however, that you maintain all copyright, trademark and other notices contained in such material and you agree to abide by all additional copyright notices or restrictions contained in any material accessed through the Online Community.
B. Use of information or communications available through the Online Community for any commercial, public or political purposes is strictly prohibited. Prohibited activities include, but are not limited to, solicitations for commercial services, cold-calling of any kind or mass-mailings for commercial purposes. Information available through the Online Community may be used for specific personal and Institutional-related purposes only.
D. All aliases adopted by Online Community Users are subject to approval by Harris to ensure that the proper image is associated with the Institution.
E. Users shall refrain from falsifying identity in order to gain access to another individual’s record. If Harris and/or the Institution believe that such falsification might have occurred, the User will be denied further access to the Online Community pending further investigation and, possibly, permanently. In cases where falsification of identity appears to have occurred in breach of any applicable Federal or state law, Harris and/or the Institution will report such occurrence(s) to appropriate law enforcement or Federal agency.
III. Limited Liability and Indemnity
The reliability of the information available through the Online Community is largely dependent upon the actions of Registrants. Harris and/or the Institution make no representation or warranty, expressly or impliedly, regarding the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of this information.
Harris does not warrant that the Online Community web site will operate error-free or that the site and its server are free of computer viruses or other harmful material. To the fullest extent permitted by the law, Harris disclaims all warranties, including the warranties of merchantability, non-infringement, and fitness for particular purpose. In no event shall Harris and/or the Institution be liable for any damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, incidental, consequential, or punitive damages, resulting from the use of or inability to use information or materials available on the Online Community web site.
Full access to the services (i.e., annual subscription) will be granted immediately upon an approved online transaction using one of the accepted credit cards. Once the subscription payment is made, the subscription fee will be non-refundable. Access will continue for 12 months, with subscriber being notified via email (if available) in advance of the subscription end date and offered the opportunity to renew the subscription at the then current rate.
Once you have submitted payment of the Annual Subscription Fee of nine dollars and ninety-five cents ($9.95) for access to and use of the Online Community web site, it is understood that this full amount is and shall remain non-refundable due to the effort of setting up authentication of your record. Prior to your 12-month subscription elapsing, you will receive a renewal notification via email that the subscription will be running out.
You are responsible for securing your user name and password. Permitting the unauthorized use of your user name and password to a third party may result in termination of your membership and additional charges to your account.
