(each, a "Blueprint Web Site," and collectively, the "Blueprint
Web Sites"). You represent that you are at least 18 years of age and have
attained the age of majority in the province, state or country in which you

BLUEPRINT OFFERS THE BLUEPRINT WEB SITES TO YOU CONDITIONED ON YOUR ACCEPTANCE WITHOUT MODIFICATION OF THIS AGREEMENT. YOUR USE OF THE BLUEPRINT WEB SITES CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES AND LIABILITY (See Sections 9, 10, and 11); AND AN EXCLUSIVE REMEDY (See Section 10). THESE PROVISIONS FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF OUR BARGAIN.
Blueprint reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which it offers the Blueprint Web Sites, including any charges associated with the use of the Blueprint Web Sites. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms, conditions and notices, and any additional terms posted on any Blueprint Web Site. Your continued use of the Blueprint Web Sites after the effective date of such changes constitutes your acceptance of and agreement to such changes.
Any Blueprint Web Site may itself contain additional terms (for example, codes of conduct or guidelines) that further govern use of that Blueprint Web Site, including without limitation, particular features or offers (for example, sweepstakes). If any terms contained in this Agreement conflict with any terms contained within a Blueprint Web Site, then the terms in this Agreement shall control.
The Blueprint Web Sites are only for your personal use. You will not use the Blueprint Web Sites for commercial purposes. You will not use the Blueprint Web Sites in any way that is unlawful, or harms Blueprint, its affiliates, resellers, distributors, service providers and/or suppliers (each, a "Blueprint Party" and collectively, the "Blueprint Parties") or any customer of a Blueprint Party, as determined in Blueprint's sole discretion. Blueprint may tell you about certain specific harmful uses in a code of conduct or other notices available through a Blueprint Web Site, but has no obligation to do so. You may not use the Blueprint Web Sites in any way that breaches any code of conduct, policy or other notice applicable to the Blueprint Web Sites. Without limiting the generality of this section, you may not use the Blueprint Web Sites in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair any Blueprint Web Site (or the network(s) connected to any Blueprint Web Site) or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Blueprint Web Sites.
Without limiting the generality of Section 4, you will not use the Blueprint Web Sites to transmit, either directly or indirectly, any unsolicited bulk e-mail or unsolicited commercial e-mail. You will not use the Blueprint Web Sites in any way that violates the Blueprint Anti-Spam Policy. You may view the Anti-Spam Policy at www.blueprintsolution.com/anti-spam.htm. A breach of any part of the Anti-Spam Policy is a breach of this Agreement. Blueprint may use filtering technology or other measures in its efforts to stop unsolicited bulk e-mail and unsolicited commercial e-mail, and if your use of the Blueprint Web Sites includes e-mail related services, then such filtering technology or other measures may block, either temporarily or permanently, some e-mail sent to you through the Blueprint Web Sites even if such e-mail does not violate the Anti-Spam Policy.
For materials you post or otherwise provide to Blueprint related to the Blueprint Web Sites (a "Submission"), you grant Blueprint permission to (1) use, copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, modify, translate and reformat your Submission, each in connection with the Blueprint Web Sites, and (2) sublicense these rights, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Blueprint will not pay you for your Submission. Blueprint may remove your Submission at any time. For each Submission, you represent that you have all rights necessary for you to make the grants in this section. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Blueprint may monitor your e-mail, or other electronic communications and may disclose such information in the event it has a good faith reason to believe it is necessary for purposes of ensuring your compliance with this Agreement, and protecting the rights, property, and interests of the Blueprint Parties or any customer of a Blueprint Party.
Your use of any software associated with the Blueprint Web Sites will be governed by the terms and conditions of the end user license agreement ("EULA") accompanying such software.
