You acknowledge and agree that the Lezage Training Center (“LTC”) is compiled, prepared, selected, and arranged by Lezage, L.L.C. ("Lezage") through the expenditure of substantial time, effort, and money and that it constitutes valuable property of Lezage, and that you shall refrain from sharing any information relative to Lezage with any third party, with the exception of your Service Sponsor, if any.

You acknowledge and agree that all proprietary rights in LTC shall remain the property of Lezage, and you further agree that all proprietary rights in the courseware, which constitute a part of LTC, remain the property of Business & Legal Resources, Inc. (“BLR”), except where otherwise indicated.

You acknowledge and agree that LTC and all its components are copyrighted, and you shall take whatever steps are necessary to safeguard against any copyright infringement by any party under your control.

This provision shall survive any termination of this Commercial License.

You may use Lezage to train your employees (full, part-time, and temporary). You may not, and you may not permit others to: (a) disassemble, decompile, alter, or otherwise derive content or source code from LTC; (b) use LTC in any manner that infringes the intellectual property or other rights of any party; (c) use LTC to prepare work products for any other party; (d) provide or sell access to LTC to any other party; (e) alter, modify, customize, translate, or change in any fashion, the content, images, graphics, audio, video, text or code of any courseware within LTC, in part or in its entirety, without advance written permission from Lezage; and (f) you may not allow any third party to access LTC using your Login and Password or access code(s).

Disclaimer

Due to the constantly changing nature of government regulations, it is impossible to guarantee the total and absolute accuracy of the material, courseware, etc. contained in the LTC service, and Lezage, BLR, and your Service Sponsor, where applicable, cannot and do not assume any responsibility for omissions, errors, misprinting, or ambiguity contained in the LTC service.

Lezage, BLR, and your Service Sponsor shall not be held liable in any degree for any loss, damage, or injury caused by any such omission, error, misprinting, or ambiguity present in the LTC service.

The LTC service is designed to provide reasonably accurate and authoritative information in regard to the subject matter covered.  It is made available with the understanding that neither Lezage, nor BLR, nor your Service Sponsor are engaged in rendering legal, accounting, or other professional service.  If legal advice or other expert service is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.

Limited warranty and limitation of liability

Lezage warrants that it has the authority to convey the rights which are the subject of these Terms and Conditions of Use.

As used below, Protected Parties means: (a) Lezage, BLR, and your Service Sponsor, if any, and their affiliates and any of their officers, directors, members, employees, subcontractors, agents, successors, or assigns.

LTC is provided on an "as is", "as available" basis. The Protected Parties expressly disclaim all other warranties, express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The Protected Parties shall not be liable for any loss, injury, claim, liability, or damage including, but not limited to, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, or exemplary damages of any kind resulting in any way from: any errors in or omissions from LTC or any materials available or not included therein, the unavailability or interruptions of LTC or any features thereof, your use of any equipment in connection with LTC, and the content of materials or any delay or failure in performance beyond the reasonable control of a Protected Party.

If the foregoing limitations are held to be unenforceable, the Protected Parties' maximum liability to you shall not exceed the amount of the fee, if any, you most recently paid for access to Lezage. The remedies available to you under this agreement are exclusive. Some states do not allow the limitations or exclusion of implied warranties, so these, or other exclusions, may not apply to you.

This provision shall survive any termination of this Commercial License.
