The following describes the terms under which EditorLive.com ("EditorLive," "we," "our," or "us"), provides the http://www.editorlive.com website
(the "EditorLive Service" or the "Service") to visitors to the http://www.editorlive.com website.
If you register on behalf of any entity other than yourself personally, you represent to EditorLive that you have the authority to bind that entity and that your acceptance of this Agreement

Your continued use of the Service following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes. As long as you comply with this Agreement, EditorLive grants

to our visitors. Such Linked Sites are not under EditorLive's control, and EditorLive is not responsible for — and does not necessarily endorse the content or
practices of — such Linked Sites, including any information or materials contained on such Linked Sites. You will need to make your own independent judgment regarding your
interaction with these Linked Sites.
