- ENFORCING SECURITY. You may not use the Site or any of the Campaign’s data, systems, network, or services to engage in, foster, or promote illegal, abusive, or irresponsible behavior, including, without limitation, accessing or using the Campaign’s data, systems, or networks in an unauthorized manner, attempting to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of a Campaign system or network, circumventing any Campaign security or authentication measures, monitoring Campaign data or traffic, interfering with any Campaign services, collecting or using from the Site email addresses, screen names, or other identifiers, collecting or using from the Site information without the consent of the owner or licensor, using any false, misleading, or deceptive TCP-IP packet header information, using the Site to distribute software or tools that gather information, distributing advertisements, or engaging in conduct that is likely to result in retaliation against the Campaign or its data, systems, or network.

The Campaign will also comply with all court orders or subpoenas involving requests for such information. In addition to the foregoing, the Campaign reserves the right to, at any time and without notice, modify, update, suspend, terminate, or interrupt operation of or access to the Site, or any portion of the Site in order to protect the Site or the Campaign.
- INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. You acknowledge that any breach, threatened or actual, of this TOU, including, without limitation, with respect to unauthorized use of Campaign proprietary assets, will cause irreparable injury to the Campaign, such injury would not be quantifiable in monetary damages, and the Campaign would not have an adequate remedy at law. You therefore agree that the Campaign shall be entitled, in addition to other available remedies, to seek and be awarded an injunction or other appropriate equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction restraining any breach, threatened or actual, of your obligations under any provision of this TOU. Accordingly, you hereby waive any requirement that the Campaign post any bond or other security in the event any injunctive or equitable relief is sought by or awarded to the Campaign to enforce any provision of this TOU.
- TERMINATION. The Campaign reserves the right at any time and on reasonable grounds to deny your access to the Site or to any portion thereof and this TOU will also terminate automatically if you fail to comply with its terms and conditions, subject to the survival rights of certain provisions identified below. Termination will be effective without prior notice. You may also terminate this TOU at any time by ceasing to use the Site, but all applicable provisions of this TOU will survive termination, as identified below, and each re-access or use of the Site will reapply this TOU (then in effect) to you. Upon termination, you must destroy all copies of any aspect of the Site in your possession. The provisions concerning the Campaign’s proprietary rights, Feedback, disclaimers of warranty, limitations of liability, waiver and severability, entire agreement, injunctive relief, and governing law will survive the termination of this TOU for any reason.
- GOVERNING LAW. This TOU will be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Connecticut as applied to agreements entered into and completely performed in the State of Connecticut. Any action to enforce this TOU will be brought in the courts presiding in the State of Connecticut and all parties to this TOU expressly agree to be subject to the jurisdiction of such courts. Access to the Site may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Site from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws.
- WAIVER & SEVERABILITY. Failure to insist on strict performance of any of the terms and conditions of this TOU will not operate as a waiver of any subsequent default or failure of performance. No waiver by the Campaign of any right under this TOU will be deemed to be either a waiver of any other right or provision or a waiver of that same right or provision at any other time. If any part of this TOU is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers, venue, claim, and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most clearly matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of this TOU shall continue in effect.
- ENTIRE AGREEMENT. No joint venture, partnership, employment, affiliate, or agency relationship exists between you and the Campaign as a result of this TOU or your utilization of the Site. This TOU represents the entire agreement between you and the Campaign with respect to use of the Site and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written between you and the Campaign with respect to the Site. Please note that the Campaign reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of this TOU by posting a revised TOU. Any changes or modification will be effective immediately upon posting of the revisions on the Site, and you waive any right you may have to receive specific notice of such changes or modifications. In addition, the Campaign may add, modify, or delete any aspect, program, or feature of the Site, but the Campaign is not under any obligation to add any upgrade, enhancement, or modification. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes or modifications will be conclusively deemed acceptance of any change to the terms and conditions of this TOU.
