By accessing or using the service, software, application or progam offered by Latticespace (collectively called the "Services"), you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions. You should read through the terms and conditions carefully before using the services, because all these terms together create a legal agreement (the "Agreement") that, once accepted by you, applies to you. Should you have any questions concerning this Agreement, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acceptance of Terms
- If you are entering into this TOS on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity, its Members, its Administrative Users, and its affiliates to this TOS. In that case, the terms "you" or "your" shall also refer to such entity, its Members, its Administrative Users, and its affiliates, as applicable. If you do not have such authority, or if you do not agree with this TOS, you may not use the Service. You acknowledge that this TOS is a contract between you and Latticespace, even though it is electronic and is not physically signed by you and Latticespace, and it governs your use of the Service.
- As our business evolves, Latticespace may change this TOS. If we make a material change to the TOS, we will provide you with reasonable notice prior to the changes either by emailing the email address associated with your account or by posting a notice on the Site. You can review the most current version of the TOS at any time by visiting this page. The revised terms and conditions will become effective on the date set forth in our notice, and if you use the Service after that date, your use will constitute acceptance of the revised terms and conditions. If any change to this TOS is not acceptable to you, your only remedy is to cancel your account and stop using the Services, which you may do by emailing us at email@example.com or otherwise through the process provided in the Service.
