LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The Service may contain links to websites operated by other parties. The Service provides these links to other websites as a convenience, and your use of these sites is at your own risk. The linked sites are not under the control of Venturetec and Venturetec is not responsible for the content available on these third party sites.

You acknowledge and agree that Venturetec shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage, loss or other claim caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with, access to, use of or reliance on any content available on or through any other Service or resource.

You may link another website to the Service subject to the following linking policy: (i) the appearance, position and other aspects of any link may not be such as to damage or dilute the reputation of Venturetec or the Service; (ii) the appearance, position and other attributes of the link may not create the false appearance that your website, business, organization or entity is sponsored by, affiliated with, or associated with Venturetec or the Service; (iii) when selected by a user, the link must display the Service on full-screen and not within a “frame” on the linking website; and (iv) Venturetec reserves the right to revoke its consent to the link at any time and in its sole discretion.
MODIFICATIONS TO SERVICE
Venturetec reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service, or any portion thereof, with or without notice. You agree that Venturetec shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Service.
SUSPENSION AND TERMINATION RIGHTS
Venturetec reserves the right, at its sole discretion, immediately and without notice, to suspend or terminate your access to the Service for any reason or no reason, including without limitation any breach by you of these Terms.

THE SERVICE AND CONTENT AND THE INFORMATION, SERVICE, PRODUCTS OFFERED FOR SALE AND MATERIALS AND ACTIVITIES CONTAINED IN OR ADVERTISED ON THE SERVICE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION TEXT, GRAPHICS AND LINKS, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, Venturetec AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND RELATED PARTIES DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO SUCH INFORMATION, SERVICE, PRODUCTS AND MATERIALS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, FREEDOM FROM COMPUTER VIRUS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE.
LIMITATION ON LIABILITY
EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS
Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitations may not apply to you. This Limitation of Liability shall be to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law.
GOVERNING LAW AND DISPUTES
These Terms shall be governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the State of Delaware, U.S.A., without regard to choice of law principles. You irrevocably agree to the exclusive jurisdiction by the federal and state courts in the State of Delaware, U.S.A., to settle any dispute which may arise out of, under, or in connection with these Terms, as the most convenient and appropriate for the resolution of disputes concerning these Terms. Any cause of action or claim you may have with respect to these Terms, Venturetec, the Service or its Content must be commenced within six (6) months after the claim or cause of action arises or such claim or cause of action shall be barred.
The Service is controlled within the United States of America. Those who choose to access the Service from locations outside of the United States do so on their own initiative, and are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable. Venturetec does not represent that the Service or Content are appropriate outside the United States of America.
Venturetec shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside its reasonable control or unforeseen circumstances such as acts of nature or God, fire, flood, earthquake, accidents, strikes, war, terrorism, governmental act, failure of common carriers (including without limitation Internet service providers and web hosting providers), or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor or materials.
These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and Venturetec with respect to the subject matter hereof. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms shall remain in full force and effect. Headings are for reference only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section. Venturetec’s failure to act with respect to any failure by you or others to comply with these Terms does not waive its right to act with respect to subsequent or similar failures. You may not assign or transfer your rights or obligations under these Terms without the prior written consent of Venturetec, and any assignment or transfer in violation of this provision shall be null and void. There are no third party beneficiaries to these Terms.
