4. TRANSFER OR ASSIGNMENT
You may not transfer or assign any of your rights under these Terms and Conditions to any other person. We may transfer or assign our rights under these Terms and Conditions to another business where we reasonably believe your rights will not be affected.
Hardware. You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining all telephone, computer hardware and other equipment needed for access to and use of this Website and all charges related thereto. We are not liable for any damages to your equipment resulting from the use of this Website.
Your Browser. The Company requires that you use an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) compliant browser. SSL is a protocol that allows your personal computer to establish a secure connection to our Internet server. Although every care has been taken to ensure the site works on as wide a range of systems as possible, we recommend using a modern browser for optimal results, such as Firefox 3, Chrome or Internet Explorer 7 or higher. SSL uses encryption techniques that turn all information transmitted into a series of unrecognizable numbers as the information travels through the Internet. Our servers turn the meaningless numbers into recognizable information after the secure connection has been made. SSL also utilizes the additional protection of a digitally signed certificate that assures you that you are communicating with the Service.
6. WEBSITE AVAILABILITY
Your access to the Website may be occasionally restricted to allow for repairs, maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services. We will attempt to restore the service as soon as we reasonably can.
