MVC does not warrant that the functions contained in the service provided by the Website will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected or that this service or the server that makes it available will be free of viruses or other harmful components.
Users who submit their e-mail addresses for inclusion on a mailing list or lists or for any other communication agree to furnish their own address, or if it is not their own, that they legally represent the address, or those connected to it, and that such use is authorized. MVC is not responsible for the inappropriate submission by others of e-mail addresses through its on-line automated response or product ordering forms; MVC will, in good faith, attempt to remove e-mail addresses, when so requested by their legitimate owners, from contact lists.
All use of any electronic response or request form is at the election of the User, and the User agrees to hold MVC harmless for any action, non-action, result, non-result or other activity related to the submission. Such forms are intended to be mechanisms of communication convenience and are not meant to be binding in anyway whatsoever, and should not be construed as such. MVC is not responsible if, for whatever reason, such submissions do not properly arrive at their intended destination. Users are responsible for whatever information they include in any such submission. MVC reserves the right to reject, deny, delete or block any submission which it deems, for whatever reason, to be objectionable, harassing, inappropriate, or illegal, with or without any communication or notice back to the original User, or any other party or Users acting in conjunction with or on their behalf.
You may not:
—select or use a Login Name of another person with the intent to impersonate that person;
—use a name subject to the rights of any other person without authorization;
—use a Login Name that Website, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate or offensive.
You shall notify MVC of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of your Account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of your 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 Account, at sole discretion of MVC, and you may be reported to appropriate law-enforcement agencies.
