We may revise or otherwise change or update this Agreement. Please check the “Last Updated” legend at the bottom of this page to see when this Agreement was last revised. Changes will become effective immediately after they are posted. A current version of this Agreement showing the effective date is always available at this location. We encourage you to periodically review this Agreement to see if there have been any changes that may affect you. If you do not agree to this Agreement as modified, then you must discontinue your use of the Website. Your continued use of a Website will signify your continued agreement to this Agreement as it may be revised from time to time.
While using this Website, you are required to comply with all applicable statutes, orders, regulations, rules and other laws. You may not use this Website for any fraudulent or unlawful purpose, and you may not take any action to interfere with this Website or any other user’s use of this Website. In addition, we expect users of the Website to respect the rights and dignity of others. By way of example and not of limitation, you may not (and you expressly agree that you will not) do any of the following, which violate this Agreement:
All content (“Content”) available through the Website is protected by copyrights, trademarks or other proprietary rights and laws. Except as set forth herein or otherwise agreed in writing by ATA or other rights owner(s), the use of any Content available on a Website is strictly prohibited.
ATA seeks to ensure that public accounting firms, issuers, investors and the general public have ready access to the rules and standards of ATA, as well as to the forms, releases, orders, notices, guidance, reports, papers and similar materials that ATA disseminates to the public through the Website (“ATA Public Materials”). Subject to third-party copyright noted on the Website, ATA therefore allows, and will not assert copyright infringement claims based solely on, the use, publication, display or distribution of all or any portion of such ATA Public Materials.
You may use ATA Public Materials from the Website explicitly made available by ATA for public use, provided that you (a) keep intact all copyright and other proprietary notices; (b) use ATA Public Materials pursuant to any associated licenses; (c) obtain consent of any applicable party with respect to third-party copyright, as necessary; (d) use appropriate attribution where feasible (e.g. “Source: Austin Tri-Hawk Automotive, www.tri-hawk.com); (e) make no modifications to ATA Public Materials; (f) do not make any additional representations or warranties relating to ATA Public Materials on behalf of ATA; and (g) do not use ATA Public Materials in any way that ATA deems inappropriate or inadvisable in its sole discretion.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
You are responsible for any Content you transmit through our Website. You agree, represent and warrant that any Content you transmit through our Website or to us is truthful, accurate, not misleading and offered in good faith, and that you have the right to transmit such Content. You shall not upload, post or otherwise make available on or through a Website any content protected by copyright, trademark or other proprietary right of any third party without the express written permission of the owner of such right(s) or the authority to do so. You shall be solely liable for any damages resulting from any infringement of copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights, or any other harm resulting from such a submission.
We do not want you to, and you should not, send any confidential or proprietary Content to us unless (a) transmitted pursuant to ATA’s regulatory activities; (b) specifically requested by us; or (c) provided as tips/referrals/complaints, including those submitted through our Tip & Referral Center. Please note that any Content sent to ATA other than pursuant to (a)-(c) above will be deemed not to be confidential or proprietary.
We use technology designed to encrypt the transmission of data to us through our Website. In addition, we take steps to protect all user data we collect against any unauthorized access. However, you should keep in mind that the Websites are run on software, hardware and networks, any component of which may, from time to time, require maintenance or experience problems or breaches of security beyond our control.
While we take steps to protect your personal information and keep it secure, you also play a role in protecting your information. You must maintain the security of your online transactions by not sharing your passwords and account information with any unauthorized parties.
We may make improvements and/or changes to the Website, add or remove features, or terminate a Website at any time without notice. We (a) reserve the right (but have no obligation) to change the Content or other offerings on the Website, at any time without any notice or liability to you or any other person; and (b) do not warrant that information on the Website is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusions and disclaimers of certain implied warranties, so some of the provisions of this section may not apply to you.
