6. Framing and Hyperlinks

You may not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any HySecurity trademark, logo or other Site Materials, including the images found at the Site, the content of any text or the layout/design of any page or form contained on a page on the Site, without HySecurity's written consent.

HySecurity makes no claim or representation regarding, and accepts no responsibility for, the quality, content, nature or reliability of third-party websites accessible by hyperlink from the Site or of websites linking to the Site. Such websites are not under the control of HySecurity and HySecurity is not responsible for the contents of any linked website or any link contained in a linked website, or any review, changes or updates to such websites. HySecurity provides these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply affiliation, endorsement or adoption by HySecurity of any website or any information contained therein. When you leave the Site, you should be aware that our terms and policies no longer govern.

7. Submissions Policy

As used in these Terms of Use, "Submission" means all comments, feedback, e-mails or other communications, suggestions, feedback, ideas, plans, designs, copyrighted works, information and anything else submitted or offered to HySecurity by you electronically, non-electronically, orally or otherwise. HySecurity welcomes your Submissions, but only under HySecurity's policies and only for non-confidential information that you personally own. HySecurity has two policies: (a) a Solicited Submissions Policy ("Solicited Policy") for Submissions HySecurity has specifically requested from you or invited you to provide, and (b) an Unsolicited Submissions Policy ("Unsolicited Policy") for Submissions you have submitted to HySecurity without request or invitation by HySecurity. Under both policies, you agree that no Submission will: (x) violate any right of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy or other personal, intellectual property or proprietary right(s), or (y) be libelous or otherwise unlawful, abusive, offensive, obscene, misleading, unfair or deceptive or constitute trade disparagement.

a. Solicited Policy. From time to time, HySecurity may specifically request or invite you to provide Submissions to HySecurity, such as suggestions or comments about our products or services. HySecurity assumes, however, that you are willing to provide such Submissions without getting paid or receiving other compensation.

b. Unsolicited Policy. HySecurity does not want to receive Submissions if you expect to be paid or want to continue to own or claim rights in them (e.g., if you want to be a patent owner or to exercise intellectual property or other rights in them). For example, if you have a great idea for a new product that you think HySecurity should make, but you also want to share in any resulting patent or profits, do not make your Submission. HySecurity does not want and will not accept such Submissions (regardless of what your communication may say about acceptance). Accordingly, do not make a Submission unless you are willing to be bound by this policy.

If you make a Submission to HySecurity, then that will constitute your acceptance of HySecurity's Solicited Policy or Unsolicited Policy, as applicable, and will also be: (1) your assignment to HySecurity of all of your rights (worldwide), title, interest and goodwill in the Submission; (2) your agreement that HySecurity will become the sole owner of the Submission upon HySecurity's receipt of it and may use it (or not use it) for all possible purposes and in all possible media, now or later known or unknown; and (3) your agreement that HySecurity is and shall be under no obligation to (a) maintain any Submission in confidence; (b) respond to or provide credit for any Submission; or (c) pay or provide any other consideration to you or anyone else for a Submission.

8. Indemnification

You will defend and indemnify HySecurity, its affiliates, independent contractors and service providers, and each of their respective members, directors, officers, employees and agents ("HySecurity Parties"), from and against all claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or related to your Submissions or your use of the Site or Site Materials.

9. Disclaimers

THE SITE AND ALL SITE MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.

IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF HYSECURITY PARTIES (WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT, PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SITE OR SITE MATERIALS EXCEED THE GREATER OF (a) THE AMOUNT YOU PAID, IF ANY, FOR YOUR USE OF THE SITE DURING THE YEAR BEFORE THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE, AND (b) TEN DOLLARS ($10).

11. Applicable Law and Venue

These Terms of Use and your use of the Site and Site Materials shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Washington without resort to its conflict of law provisions to the contrary. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to the Site, Site Materials or these Terms of Use shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in King County, Washington, and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to the same.
