You may use the Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing the Services to you if you do not comply with the terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.

Using the Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in the Services or the content you access. You may not use content from the Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in the Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with the Services.

In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.

Some of our Services are available on mobile devices. Do not use such Services in a way that distracts you and prevents you from obeying traffic or safety laws.
 

Privacy Policy
CollegePrep respects the privacy of the Services users. Please refer to CollegePrep’s Privacy Policy, which explains how we collect, use, and disclose information that pertains to your privacy. When you access or use the Services, you signify your agreement to this Privacy Policy.

Privacy and Copyright Protection
CollegePrep’s privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use the Services. By using the Services, you agree that CollegePrep can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.

All content included in or made available through the Services, such as text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, audio clips, digital downloads, data compilations, and software is the property of CollegePrep or its content suppliers and protected by United States and international copyright laws. The compilation of all content included in or made available through the Services is the exclusive property of CollegePrep and protected by U.S. and international copyright laws.

You can find more information about how CollegePrep uses and stores content in the privacy policy or additional terms for particular Services. If you submit feedback or suggestions about the Services, we may use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.


Modifying and Terminating the Services
We are constantly changing and improving the Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.

You can stop using the Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. CollegePrep may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to the Services at any time.

We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such data is important. If we discontinue a Service, where reasonably possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get information out of that Service.

Our Warranties and Disclaimers
We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.

THE SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY COLLEGEPREP ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. COLLEGEPREP MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.

TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, COLLEGEPREP DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. COLLEGEPREP DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE SERVICES, COLLEGEPREP'S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM COLLEGEPREP ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, COLLEGEPREP WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY COLLEGEPREP SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY COLLEGEPREP SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.


About these Terms
We may modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should review the terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service.

If there is a conflict between these terms and the additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.

These terms control the relationship between CollegePrep and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.

If you do not comply with these terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).

If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.

The laws of California, U.S.A., excluding California’s conflict of laws rules, will apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services. All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts, California, USA, and you and CollegePrep consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
