In addition, you agree to abide by all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations with respect to your use of the Website. You also acknowledge and agree that use of the Internet and access to the Website is solely at your own risk. While ELN has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Website, you should understand that the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Website over the Internet or other form of global communication network cannot be guaranteed.

Registration as a User for access to certain areas of the Website may require both a user name and a password or adherence to other particular access requirements as designated by ELN. Only one User can use one user name and password and, thus, one account. Limiting access helps avoid unauthorized usage by other persons, institutions, or entities because anyone with knowledge of both your user name and password can gain entry to the restricted portions of the Website and to your account. Accordingly, by using the Website, you agree to consider your user name and password as confidential information and to keep your user name and password confidential. You also agree not to use another User's user name and password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your account and for all activities that occur under or through your account and you agree to immediately notify ELN if you become aware of any loss or theft of your password or any unauthorized use of your user name and password. ELN cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these obligations. ELN reserves the right to delete or change a user name or password at any time and for any reason. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall convey to you any further rights in your account or its information and any and all such content or information shall be subject to these Terms.

Please note that your mobile carrier’s normal messaging, data, and other rates and fees will apply to your use of the Mobile Services. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Mobile Services may be prohibited or restricted by your mobile carrier, and not all Mobile Services may work with all carriers or devices. Therefore, you are responsible for checking with your mobile carrier to determine if the Mobile Services are available for your mobile devices, what restrictions, if any, may be applicable to your use of the Mobile Services, and how much they will cost you. Nevertheless, all use of the Website and its Mobile Services shall be in accordance with these Terms.
From time to time, the Website may offer Users the ability to post content or submit to us materials such as comments, remarks, suggestions, ideas, graphics, opinions, photos, videos, entries to promotions or other information or content created by Users ("Submissions").

Accordingly, notwithstanding this right and license, it is understood that by merely permitting your information, content, and materials to appear on the Website ELN has not become and is not a publisher of such information, content, and materials and is merely functioning as an intermediary to enable you to provide and display a Submission. Moreover, ELN assumes no responsibility for the deletion of or failure to store any Submission and recommends that you do not post, display, or transmit any confidential or sensitive information.
ELN is not responsible for screening or editing your or another User’s Submissions and encourages all of its Users to use reasonable discretion and caution in evaluating or reviewing any Submission.
