We have the right to revise and amend these Terms and/or of the Services from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our system’s capabilities or for any other reason in our sole discretion which we may decide. Your continued access to or use of the Website and/or the Services constitutes your acceptance of any such change and/or amendment.

By using the Website, you agree to and accept the following:

1. Acceptance of the Terms. Your continued access to or use of the Website constitutes your acceptance of our Acceptable Use Policy, of our Privacy Policy, and these Terms. Certain functionalities, features or services may require additional terms and conditions in which case your clicking of “acceptance buttons” and/or other prompts and/or any other similar methods of acquiring your consent will constitute your acceptance of the said terms and conditions.

2. Illegal use: You agree not to use the website for or in the pursuit of illegal purposes. Transition cooperates with the authorities in investigations into illegal Internet use, and will take both criminal and civil legal action against Users who use the website and/or its contents in an unlawful way. You agree not to directly or indirectly allow a third party to use the website in an illegal or unsuitable manner.

3. Harassment: You agree not to use the website for harassment, threats, verbal abuse, and/or persistent unwanted contact(s) of any kind. Harassment covers any use of the website to directly or indirectly contact any other user or administrator in an unwanted fashion. Harassment can be active, in forms including but not limited to unwanted emails, and/or chat messages, and/or verbal declarations on a public forum, and can be passive in the form of defamatory information posted on websites.

This includes any deliberate attempt to interfere with another user’s ability to take advantage of services offered online. Hackers will be subject to the full extent of criminal law, and Transition reserves the right to seek damages or resort to any and/or all legal remedies against Users who abuse, attack, or hack our systems, servers, or whoever uses the website in a manner that is contrary to law or our Terms of Service, our Privacy Policy or this Acceptable Use Policy.

5. Fraud/False Advertising: You agree not to post or transmit fraudulent information on or through the website. This can include false advertising, identity theft, misrepresentation of any kind including phishing, forged email headers and/or fictitious email addresses.

6. Unsolicited Advertising/Spamming: You agree not to post or transmit any unsolicited material through any active medium such as email, chat, messaging, chain letters, advertisements, jokes, etc. Transition does not tolerate unsolicited mass emailing (‘spamming’) of any kind, and the use of any of Transition’s systems for this purpose is strictly prohibited. You further agree not to collect or harvest account information without the explicit prior consent of those from whom you collect the information.

7. Disruptive Content: You agree not to post or transmit any disruptive content. Certain kinds of content broadcast or displayed on the Internet can generate a great deal of disruption and reaction from the Internet community as a whole. This can include, but is not limited to, material that is considered obscene, offensive, or extremely controversial. While Transition does not actively censor its Users, the reaction this material can generate can be expensive and time consuming, and as such makes the continued support of Users generating this kind of content of questionable business value to Transition. You understand and agree that Transition may suspend or terminate your access to its systems should your usage constitute disruptive content, as determined by Transition in its sole discretion.
