Terms Of Use

AGREEMENT BETWEEN USER AND DRAKE

This website and other related websites and mobile applications (collectively referred to as "Sites") comprise various web pages and services operated by Drake Enterprises, Ltd. (“Drake Software”).

The Sites are offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein. Your use of the Sites constitutes your agreement to all such terms, conditions, and notices.

MODIFICATION OF THESE TERMS OF USE
Drake Software reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which the Sites are offered, including but not limited to the charges associated with the use of the Sites.

LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEB SITES

The Sites may contain links to other web sites ("Linked Sites"). The Linked Sites are not under the control of Drake Software and Drake Software is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site, including without limitation any link contained in a Linked Site, or any changes or updates to a Linked Site. Drake Software is not responsible for webcasting or any other form of transmission received from any Linked Site. Drake Software is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by Drake Software of the site or any association with its operators.

USE OF COOKIES

The Sites use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. One way a cookie saves you time is by telling the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize a page on one of the Sites pages, or register with a Site or its services, a cookie helps the Site recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to a Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Site's features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of a Site's services or the features of other websites you visit.

NO UNLAWFUL OR PROHIBITED USE

As a condition of your use of the Sites, you warrant to Drake Software that you will not use any of the Sites for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these terms, conditions, and notices. You may not use any of the Sites in any manner which could damage, disable, overburden, or impair any of the Sites or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of any of the Sites. You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available or provided for through the Sites.

USE OF COMMUNICATION SERVICES

The Sites may contain bulletin board services, chat areas, news groups, forums, communities, personal web pages, calendars, and/or other message or communication facilities designed to enable you to communicate with the public at large or with a group (collectively, "Communication Services"). You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send and receive messages and material that are proper and related to the particular Communication Service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using a Communication Service, you will not:

  • Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others;
  • Publish, post, upload, distribute or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent or unlawful topic, name, material or information;
  • Upload files that contain software or other material protected by intellectual property laws (or by rights of privacy or publicity) unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents;
  • Upload files that contain viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer;
  • Advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose, unless such Communication Service specifically allows such messages;
  • Conduct or forward surveys, contests, pyramid schemes or chain letters;
  • Download any file posted by another user of a Communication Service that you know, or reasonably should know, cannot be legally distributed in such manner;
  • Falsify or delete any author attributions, legal or other proper notices or proprietary designations or labels of the origin or source of software or other material contained in a file that is uploaded;
  • Restrict or inhibit any other user from using and enjoying the Communication Services;
  • Violate any code of conduct or other guidelines which may be applicable for any particular Communication Service;
  • Harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including e-mail addresses, without their consent; or
  • Violate any applicable laws or regulations.

Drake Software has no obligation to monitor the Communication Services. However, Drake Software reserves the right to review materials posted to a Communication Service and to remove any materials in its sole discretion. Drake Software reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.

Drake Software reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post, or remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in Drake Software's sole discretion.

Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children in any Communication Service. Drake Software does not control or endorse the content, messages, or information found in any Communication Service, and therefore, Drake Software specifically disclaims any liability arising from or relating to any Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service. Managers and hosts are not authorized Drake Software spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of Drake Software.

Materials uploaded to a Communication Service may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction, and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.
