These Terms of Service govern your use of the RCN Associates  website (the “Service”).

The Service contains material that is protected by international copyright, trademark and other intellectual property laws. Unless otherwise specified, the Service is intended for your personal, noncommercial use only. You may not modify, copy, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit or distribute in any way any material, including code and software, from the Service. You may download material from the Service and may use for your personal, non-commercial use only, provided you keep intact all copyright and other proprietary notices.

As part of our Service, RCN Associates agrees to provide you with information and other computer services subject to these Terms of Service. You agree to use the Service in accordance with these Terms of Service. Accessing our Service, in any manner, for the purpose of obtaining information, technical or otherwise, about the Service constitutes use of the Service such that the party accessing the Service is bound by these Terms of Service. Because the Web is an evolving medium, we may need to change these Terms of Service or impose new conditions on use of the Service, from time to time, in which case we will post the revised Terms of Service on this website. By continuing to use the RCN Associates  website after we post any such changes, you accept the Terms of Service, as modified.

You may establish a hypertext link to this Service so long as the link does not state or imply any sponsorship of your site by RCN Associates. However, you may not, without the prior written permission of RCN Associates, frame any of the content of the Service, or incorporate into another website or other service any intellectual property of RCN Associates, its parent or affiliate companies or its licensors.

The RCN Associates website includes links to other websites, and provides access to products and services offered by third parties, whose privacy policies we do not control. When you access another website or purchase products or services or conduct other transactions through the Service, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting or the provider of such products or services.

Through the Service, RCN Associates has provided links and pointers to Internet sites maintained by third parties. RCN Associates’s linking to such third party sites does not imply an endorsement or sponsorship of such sites, or the information, products or services offered on or through the sites. In addition, RCN Associates, or its parent or subsidiary companies nor their affiliates operate or control in any respect any information, products or services that third parties may provide on or through the Service or on websites linked to by the RCN Associates website. The information, products and services offered on or through the Service and any third-party sites are provided “as is” and without warranties of any kind either express or implied. To the fullest extent permissible pursuant to applicable law, RCN Associates disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. RCN Associates does not warrant that the Service or any of its functions will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that any part of this Service, including bulletin boards, or the servers that make it available, are free of viruses or other harmful components.

RCN Associates does not warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the Service or materials in this Service, or in third-party sites in terms of their correctness, accuracy, timeliness, reliability or otherwise. You (and not RCN Associates ) assume the entire cost of all necessary maintenance, repair or correction.

The Service is provided for informational purposes only. The Service should not be used in any high risk activities where damage or injury to persons, property, environment, finances or business may result if an error occurs. You expressly assume all risk for such use.

Use of Company Directories
The information contained in any company directories that may be provided on the RCN Associates website is provided for business lookup purposes and is not to be used for marketing or telemarketing applications. This information may not be copied or redistributed and is provided “AS IS” without warranty of any kind. In no event will RCN Associates or its suppliers be liable in any way with regard to such information.

Limitation of liability
Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall RCN Associates, its subsidiary and parent companies or affiliates be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, RCN Associates materials, products, or services, third party materials, products, or services made available through RCN Associates , or any part of the Service even if RCN Associates is advised beforehand of the possibility of such damages. (Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain categories of damages, the above limitation many not apply to you. In such states, the liability of RCN Associates, its subsidiary and parent companies or affiliates is limited to the fullest extent permitted by such state law.) You specifically acknowledge and agree that RCN Associates is not liable for any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of any user. If you are dissatisfied with any RCN Associates material, products, or services, or with any of RCN Associates terms and conditions, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Service.

This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between RCN Associates and you with respect to this website and to the subject matter contained in this agreement and supersedes all previous and contemporaneous agreements, proposals and communications, written or oral. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use the products or services of a third party that are provided through the Service. In the event of any conflict between any such third party terms and conditions and these Terms of Service, these Terms of Service shall govern. This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Massachusetts without giving effect to any principles or conflicts of law. If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
