Goodyear Connects Terms of Service

 

When using Goodyear Connects’ services, you agree to the terms and conditions listed on this page (the "Terms of Service"), which may be updated by us from time to time. The Terms of Service apply to Goodyear Connects, its parent and subsidiary sites, third-level domains, parked domains, partnerships and affiliates, owner, and individuals employed or contracted by Goodyear Connects or its owner except where otherwise noted.

 

Goodyear Connects may provide search technology that links to other Web sites or static or database-generated links to other Web sites and information located worldwide throughout the Internet. Because we have no control over such sites and information, we make no guarantee as to such sites and information, including the accuracy, currency, content or quality of any such sites and information and we assume no responsibility as to whether the search locates unintended or objectionable content. Furthermore, because some content on the Internet consists of material that is adult-oriented or otherwise objectionable to some people, the results of links on our sites may automatically and unintentionally generate links or references to objectionable material. We make no claim that such surprises might not occur.

 

Under Goodyear Connects privacy policy, we may disclose to third parties certain aggregate information contained in our users' registration applications, but we will not disclose your name, address, email address or telephone number without your prior written consent, except as required by law.

 

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account number, user name and/or password. You are responsible for all uses of your account, whether or not actually or expressly authorized by you. You must be 18 years of age or older to open or maintain an account, free or otherwise, with Goodyear Connects or to access any part of the site which requires an account or registration of any kind or to enter any personal information into any form or to create or maintain any personalized settings that may be available on Goodyear Connects.

 

Users alone are responsible for the contents of the messages they communicate when using our services and as well as the consequences of any such messages. You agree that you will not use our services for chain letters, junk mail, "spamming" or commercial solicitations or to engage in illegal activities. You further agree not to use our services to send any message or material that is unlawful, gives rise to civil liability or otherwise violates the community standards described on our sites.

 

In order to ensure that Goodyear Connects is able to provide high quality services that are responsive to customer needs, you must consent to Goodyear Connects employees being able to access your account and records on a case-by-case basis to investigate complaints or other allegations or abuse. Goodyear Connects shall not disclose the existence or occurrence of such an investigation unless required by law. Violation of terms of service may result in immediate deletion of a users account.

 

All chat and bulletin board communications are public and not private communications. Although we reserve the right to remove without notice any bulletin board posting for any reason, we have no obligation to delete content that you may find objectionable or offensive.

 

All chat, bulletin board, email, or other communications with Goodyear Connects become the property of Goodyear Connects for nonexclusive use without restrictions unless said communications are directed at Goodyear Connects in private email format for the sole purpose of conducting business with Goodyear Connects to the extent that Goodyear Connects is a service provider.

 

Goodyear Connects may provide links to merchant's websites to assist User's shopping online. Merchants are obligated to provide accurate and current information to Goodyear Connects at all times, however in certain circumstances it is possible that a merchant may update it's website information before it provides updated information to Goodyear Connects. By using this service you agree to be aware of this risk. Goodyear Connects is not involved in any transaction between any user of our service and any merchant who you might find while using our service; for this reason any question you might have with the merchant must be taken directly to the merchant.

 

We may modify or discontinue our services or your account with us, with or without notice, without liability to you, any other user or any third party. We reserve the right to terminate your account if we learn that you have provided us with false or misleading registration information, interfered with other users or the administration of Goodyear Connects’  services, or violated these Terms of Service. We may block your access to Goodyear Connects with no prior notice and by using any means at our disposal. In addition, some areas of Goodyear Connects may be made inaccessible to you based on criteria not specific to your account, including your browser type, operating system type, or other general criteria.
