By downloading, accessing, or using the Website in order to view any information and materials, register or enter into a transaction with or through ATD for any reason, or submit information of any kind, you represent that you are at least eighteen (18) years of age (or the legal age of majority (whichever is greater)) and will, at all times, provide true, accurate, current, and complete information when submitting information or materials on the Website, including, without limitation, when you provide information via a Website registration or submission form. If you provide any false, inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, ATD reserves the right to terminate immediately Your access to and use of the Website and to seek other remedies or damages available under law or equity. In addition, you agree to abide by all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations with respect to Your use of the Website. You also acknowledge and agree that use of the Internet and access to the Website is solely at Your own risk. While ATD has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Website, you should understand that the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Website over the Internet or other form of global communication network cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly, ATD is not responsible for the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website. You must make Your own determination as to such issues. If you wish to communicate with ATD through other means, please contact ATD at customercare@td.org or 703.683.8100.
  4. Other Terms and Conditions. Additional notices, terms, and conditions may apply to participation, subscription, or a particular program, service, event, or solution. Moreover, if You are using the Website on behalf of an entity, please note that such entity may have a separate agreement with ATD regarding access and usage privileges to the restricted member portal areas of the Website. You agree to abide by such other notices, terms, and conditions or agreement, as applicable. If there is a conflict between this TOU and other notices, terms, and conditions posted to the Website, ATD shall resolve any conflict in good faith in its sole discretion but the latter terms shall generally control with respect to such participation, subscription, or program, service, event, or solution.
  5. DIRECTORY. ATD may make available through the Website an online directory of ATD member information (the "ATD Directory"). In addition to any other terms and conditions set forth in this TOU, you acknowledge and agree that the ATD Directory shall be used only for personal and non-promotional purposes and that any information of the ATD Directory shall not be further published, displayed, or made accessible. Accordingly, unless ATD has provided its prior written consent, you acknowledge and agree that the contents of the ATD Directory may not, in whole or in part, be reproduced, copied, disseminated, entered into a computer database, used as part of or in connection with a mailing list, or otherwise utilized, in any form or manner or by any means inconsistent with this TOU. You also acknowledge that a person or entity's listing in the ATD Directory represents only that such person or entity is registered with and an active member of ATD. ATD makes no further representations or warranties regarding any such person or entity (or the related information) listed in the ATD Directory, and any information made available through the ATD Directory is provided on an "AS-IS" and "AS-AVAILABLE" basis without warranty of any kind.
  6. Privacy Policy.

Please see ATD's Privacy Policy for a summary of ATD's personal identifying information collection and use practices.
  7. User Name Handling Policy. Registration may be required for access to certain areas of the Website. These restricted areas, pages, or portals may further require both a user name and a password or adherence to other particular access requirements as designated by ATD. Only one User can use one user name and password and, thus, one account. By limiting access, it helps avoid unauthorized usage by other persons, institutions, or entities because anyone with knowledge of both Your user name and password can gain entry to the restricted portions of the Website and to Your account. Accordingly, by using the Website, you agree to consider Your user name and password as confidential information and to keep Your user name and password confidential. You also agree not to use another User's user name and password. You will immediately notify ATD if you become aware of any loss or theft of Your password or any unauthorized use of Your user name and password. ATD will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from Your failure to comply with these obligations.
  8. Postings. The Website may contain blogs, forums, message boards, portals, comment areas, questionnaires, chat rooms, and other interactive features and functionality where Users can share and post information and/or photos, video, or audio. To the extent that the Website contains such communication forums (referenced collectively herein as “Forums”), you agree that by using the Website you will not upload, post, display, or transmit any of the following materials on the Website’s Forums:

    • anything that interferes with or disrupts the Website or the operation thereof,
    • statements or material that defames, harasses, abuses, stalks, threatens, intimidates, or in any way violates the rights of others,
    • unauthorized copyrighted materials or any other material that infringes on the intellectual property rights, trade secrets, or privacy of others,

    • statements or material that contains vulgar, obscene, profane, or otherwise objectionable language or images that typically would not be considered socially or professionally responsible or appropriate in person,

    • statements or material that impersonates any other person or entity, whether actual or fictitious, including, without limitation, employees and representatives of ATD,
    • statements or material that misrepresents Your affiliation with any entity and/or ATD,
    • anything that violates the privacy or publicity rights of any other person, including, without limitation, posting any personal identifying information of another individual,

    • statements or materials that are deceptive or misleading,
    • statements or material that constitutes junk mail, spam, or unauthorized advertising or promotional materials,
    • statements or material that are “off-topic” for a designated Forum, and
    • files that contain malicious code, viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another’s computer, network, or the Website.

  9. Permission to Use Postings. Forums are the resources and property of ATD and/or its licensors and you will not have any proprietary interest in any Forum. Moreover, by submitting content or information of any type (a "Posting") to a Forum or other portion of the Website or by otherwise using the Website to transmit or display a Posting, you automatically grant ATD a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, transmit, perform, and display such content or information (in whole or in part) worldwide and/or to incorporate into other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed for the full term of any rights that may exist in such content or information. You represent that you have all necessary rights to make the Posting available to ATD and a Forum, and you also acknowledge that such Postings are non-confidential for all purposes and that ATD has no control over the extent to which any idea or information may be used by any party or person once it's posted or displayed. Accordingly, notwithstanding this right and license, it is understood that by merely permitting Your information, content, and materials to appear on the Website ATD has not become and is not a publisher of such information, content, and materials and is merely functioning as an intermediary to enable you to provide and display a Posting. Moreover, ATD assumes no responsibility for the deletion of or failure to store any Posting and recommends that you do not post, display, or transmit any confidential or sensitive information.

  10. No Pre-Screening of Postings. ATD is not responsible for screening, policing, editing, or monitoring Your or another User’s Postings and encourages all of its Users to use reasonable discretion and caution in evaluating or reviewing any Posting. Moreover, and except as provided below with respect to ATD's right and ability to delete or remove a Posting (or any part thereof), ATD does not endorse, oppose, or edit any opinion or information provided by you or another User and does not make any representation with respect to, nor does it endorse the accuracy, acceptability, completeness, timeliness, or reliability of any advice, opinion, statement, or other material displayed, uploaded, or distributed by you or any other User. Nevertheless, ATD reserves the right to monitor, delete, or take other action with respect to Postings (or parts thereof) that ATD believes in good faith violate this TOU and/or are, or are potentially, unlawful or harmful to ATD or its affiliates, volunteers, services, or goodwill. If you violate this TOU, ATD may, in its sole discretion, delete the unacceptable content from Your Posting, remove or delete the Posting in its entirety, issue you a warning, and/or terminate Your use of the Website. Moreover, it is a policy of ATD to take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act under U.S. Copyright Law and other applicable intellectual property laws. If you become aware of Postings that violate these rules regarding acceptable behavior or content, you may contact ATD as provided below.
  11. Copyright; Designated Agent for Notification of Claims of Infringement. ATD respects the intellectual property of others, and it asks its Users to do the same. Accordingly, it is ATD's policy to respond to a notice of alleged infringement that complies with U.S. Copyright Law, and in particular, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Responses may include removing or disabling access to content or material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity and/or terminating Your right to access and use the Website. But, you acknowledge that you may be liable for damages, including attorneys' fees and costs, if you materially misrepresent that a work or activity is infringing Your rights. If ATD terminates or suspends a User's access to or use of the Website, ATD will make a good-faith attempt (as warranted) to contact the person who posted the content so that they may make counter notification pursuant to applicable laws. It is ATD's policy to document all notices of alleged infringement upon which ATD decides to take action. As with all legal notices, a copy of the notice may be sent to one or more third parties who may make such notice available to the public. If you believe that one or more of Your works have been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide a written notice of Your claim of copyright infringement that is directed to ATD's designated agent as specified below along with the following information:

  25. 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 ATD 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 and the 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.
