The Services, all information, products and services contained or described in the Services or any Linked Sites, and the URL may be accessed and used solely by the Subscribing Organization to which such URL is assigned and its Members, solely for purposes of managing their Organization’s programs, facilities, registrations, payments, membership and related data. RecDesk LLC may at any time Terminate the Services or any feature, or the Subscribing Organization’s or it’s Authorized Users’ access as provided in Sections 4 and 5 hereof. All changes to the Services will be subject to these Terms.
2. REGISTRATION; BILLING INFORMATION; SITE ADMINISTRATOR
To establish RecDesk Director Site, the Subscribing Organization must complete the Site registration process. The Subscribing Organization must provide accurate and complete information upon Site registration contained in the Site registration form (the “Registration Information”) as well as accurate and complete billing contact information, (“Billing Information”) and promptly update the Registration and Billing Information so that it is always accurate and complete. The person who completes the Site registration is the initial Site Administrator (RecDesk Director role) for the Site, and exercises certain options to initially determine the level of security for the Site. For example, s/he will determine who can be an Authorized User of the Site and the level of privileges that Authorized Users will possess. Each Site Administrator may designate other Authorized Users as additional and/or successor Site Administrators, and is responsible for confirming that such person(s) accept such responsibility. Upon becoming a site administrator, each person will be deemed to agree to the obligations of a Site Administrator hereunder. All notices from RecDesk LLC to the Subscribing Organization will be given to the current Site Administrator(s) at the e-mail address(es) appearing on the Site. In addition, all notices and information sent by RecDesk LLC to Member Organizations and Authorized Users will be sent to their individual addresses. In its sole discretion, RecDesk LLC will determine the timing, nature, and content of all communications with Site Administrators and Authorized Users.
3. REGISTRATION CODE; PASSWORD; SECURITY
Upon registration, the Subscribing Organization will select a Site Name. RecDesk LLC will make reasonable efforts to assign to the Subscribing Organization the Site Name that it selects. However, we reserve the right to reject or terminate use of a Site Name, if it has been previously assigned to another Subscribing Organization, or if RecDesk LLC in its sole discretion determines (a) the Site Name is offensive or its use violates applicable law, (b) the Subscribing Organization is using a Site Name of another party with the intent to impersonate that party, (c) the Site Name contains, may interfere or be confused with, violate, exploit, or capitalize on, the name, goodwill, trade name, trademark, registered trademark, service mark, or proprietary or other rights of any party, (d) the Subscribing Organization has reserved more than five Site Names or Sites or (e) The subscribing Organization have created multiple “free trial” sites for the purpose of avoiding subscription fees. If RecDesk LLC rejects or terminates use of a Site Name because of a violation or threatened violation of this Section 3, it may elect, at its sole discretion and without prior notice: to select an alternate Site Name, to allow the Subscribing Organization to promptly select another acceptable Site Name, and/or to Terminate as provided in Section 4 hereof. The Subscribing Organization is entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the User IDs, the passwords, the Site and the information stored on the Site (collectively, the “Site Information”), and of all information that they transmit through the Services.
The Subscribing Organization will notify RecDesk LLC immediately of any known or suspected unauthorized use, activities or disclosure of the Site or any information, or any other breach of security. RecDesk LLC will not be liable for any failure by the Subscribing Organization to comply with this Section 3 or any other provision of these Terms.
RecDesk LLC, in its sole discretion, may terminate, cancel, suspend, limit, discontinue, and/or deactivate (temporarily or permanently) all or any part of the Services, Site Name, any part or all of the Site, and/or the Subscribing Organization’s access to and use of any part or all of their Site Information, the Services and/or the Site, and/or their rights under these Terms (all of the foregoing rights and actions to “Terminate” or a “Termination”), all at any time, including without limitation if (a) RecDesk LLC believes that the Subscribing Organization has violated or is threatening to violate these Terms or other policy of RecDesk LLC, its Third Party Providers or applicable law, has misused or is threatening to misuse the Services, or has conducted or is threatening to conduct any fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity, (b) RecDesk LLC believes that the Subscribing Organization has accessed or is attempting to access any part of the Services or Content without authorization, or the Site, Site or Personal Information of any other Subscribing Organization, (c) the Subscribing Organization assigns its rights to the Site or the Site Name, (d) RecDesk LLC discontinues the Services or any part thereof for any reason. RecDesk LLC reserves the right to investigate the validity of any complaint presented to it which alleges that any site has been used to conduct fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity, or has been used in any way which violates these Terms. Such investigations may include logging on to the site and/or reviewing any data or information contained therein. RecDesk LLC will not, however, provide any such information to any third party unless required by law or court order.
A Termination described in Section 4(a), (b), (c), or (d) may be made with or without notice and will be effective immediately.
