IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU DO NOT HAVE RFS’S PERMISSION TO ACCESS, VIEW, USE OR LINK TO ANY PART OF THE SITE. ANY SUCH UNAUTHORIZED USE VIOLATES RFS’S RIGHTS IN THE SITE AND IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
1. Site Description
a. Description. The Site is proprietary to RFS and is protected by intellectual property laws and international intellectual property treaties. Your access to the Site is licensed and not made available unconditionally to you. Subject to the terms and limitations set forth in this Agreement, RFS agrees to provide you with a personal, non-transferable and non-exclusive right to access, view, use and link to the Site.

You may link to the Site only by means of a hypertext link (a Hypertext Reference or “HREF”), the most fundamental hyperlink, achieved through use of a piece of text which is differentiated from regular text onscreen by a special color or formatting, such as underlining. HREF simply directs the reader from information displayed on your Site to information displayed on this Site subject to the limitations set forth in Section 4 below. Operationally, when a user clicks on a hypertext link, its browser terminates its link to your Site and establishes a new connection with this Site. Such HREF’s display content from only one Site at a time, and your Site does not copy any content from this Site. The hypertext links permitted under this Section may not incorporate any textual or graphical materials or other content from this Site and may not be used to engage in infringements of third party proprietary rights and/or unfair trade practices, such as passing off, misappropriation of goods and services, false advertising and trade libel.

For any reason, to: (i) remove or disable access to all or any portion of the Site; (ii) suspend your access to or use of all or any portion of the Site; and/or (iii) terminate, in whole or in part, this Agreement and/or this Site without liability.
To remove or refuse any information and/or Submission (defined in Section 2.g below) for any reason. Notwithstanding these rights, you remain solely responsible for the content of your Submissions. You acknowledge and agree that neither RFS nor any third party that provides Content to RFS will assume or have any liability for any action or inaction by RFS or such third party with respect to any Submission.
To disclose any information RFS has about you (including your identity) if RFS determines that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Site, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) RFS’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Site, including RFS’s licensees.

You agree to notify RFS immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or password, or any other breach of security.

Consequently, you understand, agree, and assume the risk that Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure and that any message or information you send to the Site may be read or intercepted by others, even if there is a special notice that a particular transmission (for example, credit card information) is encrypted. RFS does not agree to accept and/or maintain the secrecy of any unsolicited information you send to RFS except if a written relationship of confidentiality currently exists between us. No such confidentiality relationship is created unilaterally by your sending to RFS any information you consider to be confidential.
