– Technical terms we use may require special definitions
The information on our Websites may use terms that have technical meanings that may be different from their ordinary meanings and require specialist knowledge and expertise to understand properly and use effectively.
– Posted information may not be complete or may contain errors
We make our best efforts to provide comprehensive, complete, and current information on our Websites. It is possible, however, that there may be additional information about one or more products that are not posted to a website. Please use our Contact Us Form to notify us of any errors or if you need additional information about one of our products or any other information on a Lightide Website.

Some of the information contained in this Website is provided to Lightide and its affiliates by third parties. It is not possible for Lightide and its affiliates to check exhaustively the accuracy of all information provided by third parties. Inaccuracies may arise in that information in different ways, and those inaccuracies may not be evident to users of this Website. Although we may provide links to other websites (“Linked Sites”) as a matter of convenience for our users, Lightide has no control over these Linked Sites and we do not necessarily share their viewpoints and cannot guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of the information within those websites. Use these Linked Sites at your own risk.

– There are inherent security risks with online services
It is unlikely that there will ever be a security system that is utterly infallible and unbreakable by a concerted attack with enough time, skill, and resources.
Lightide has three types of security associated with its websites. One type is for a publicly available website – no login is required, and there is no encryption of any information. The second type is semi-secure – a login system requires a user ID and a password, but there is no encryption of any exchanged information. The third type of website has the highest security – a login system is used with an encrypted data communication system based on Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) encryption. This highest level of security would be used where financial information and orders are involved. Highly secured sites will generally have a URL that begins with https://. . ., and some browsers will show an icon of a closed lock to indicate a secured connection.
You should be aware, however, that there are some inherent risks associated with the transmission of information via the Internet, and with using SSL as the encryption mechanism. If you do not wish to use any of the Lightide company online services, you can transact with us by mail at the address listed in the Contact Us section of these Terms.
In an effort to protect your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. As a result, although we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of Personal Information against any possible loss or unauthorized access.
– Fees and Payment
Although some of our services are currently free to users, Lightide reserves the right to require payment of fees for certain or all services. You shall pay all applicable fees, as described on the Website in connection with such services selected by you. Lightide reserves the right to change its price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon notice to you, which may be sent by email or posted on the Website. Your use of the Services following such notification constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges. Any fees paid hereunder are non-refundable.
Acceptable Use Guidelines.
As a condition to your use of the Website, you agree to follow our Acceptable Use Guidelines, set out below. Under these Guidelines, you will not:
– Upload, email, or otherwise transmit any images or other user content that is unlawful, obscene, harmful, hateful, invades the privacy of any third party, contains nudity or pornography, or is otherwise objectionable.
– Disseminate materials that impact or invade the privacy of others, such as photographs, video clips, sound recordings, personally identifiable information, or other materials that reveal personal, private, or sensitive information about another person, without that person’s consent.
– Submit material that is intentionally false, defamatory, unlawfully threatening, or unlawfully harassing.
– Infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy. Electronic materials – such as music, videos, games, images, and text in electronic form – can easily be copied, modified, and sent over networks (such as the internet). These electronic materials are thus extremely vulnerable to unauthorized distribution and copyright infringement. These materials may not be transmitted over the Website without the copyright owner’s permission or without a legitimate “fair use” justification for the transmittal.
– Transmit materials that contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or other computer-programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data, or personal information.
– Use the Website to artificially generate traffic or page links to a website or for any other purpose not expressly allowed under these Terms.
– Use the Website in a manner that could disable, overburden or impair the Website or Services or interfere with any other party’s use and enjoyment of the Website and Services, such as through sending “spam.”
– Use the Website to test or reverse engineer the Website in order to find limitations, vulnerabilities, or to evade filtering capabilities.
– Seek to obtain access to any materials or information through “hacking”, “data harvesting” or through other means we have not intentionally made available to you through the Website, including use of manual or automated software, devices, or other processes to “crawl,” “scrape,” or “spider” any page of the Website.
– Use the Website for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms. For example, you will not use the Website to violate any law, statute, or regulation (including, without limitation, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, or false advertising).
Monitoring; Revocation or Suspension of Use Privileges.
Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent: If the content provider or user believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider or user, must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed above:
A. A physical or electronic signature of the content provider or user;
B. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
C. A statement that the content provider or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
D. Content provider’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s or user’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Lightide may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Lightide may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider or user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Lightide’s discretion.
