Thank you for vising our website. These terms and conditions (the “Terms of Use”) are a binding agreement between you and World Water Works, Inc. (“WWW,” “we,” “us” or “our”) regarding your access and use of the worldwaterworks.com (together with all related and derivative sites, the “Site”), our online newsletter (the “Newsletter”), our online blog (the “Blog”) and any information, text, graphics, or other materials or content appearing on any of the foregoing (collectively, “Site Content”). We reserve the right to modify these Terms of Use at any time. Your continued use after such modification will be deemed your acceptance to the same.

Please read the Terms of Use carefully. By accessing or using Site Content, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use. If you do not want to agree to the Terms of Use, do not access or use the Site Content.

Privacy Policy & Collection of Information.

We may collect personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information from you. Personally identifiable information is information that can identify you, such as your full name, email address, postal address, telephone number, and fax number. Non-personally identifiable information includes information such as your zip code, age, interests or gender, or a combination of the above information, as well as information about your computer hardware and software, such as your IP address, browser type, domain name, access time and referring website addresses, to, among other things, improve and analyze the Site Content.

We may also log IP addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes and to determine Site usage. We may use cookies to personalize your visit to the Site. A cookie is a data text file sent from a website to your browser. It may be stored within your system. To the extent we use cookies, we can only access information from a cookie sent by the Site, not other websites. By tracking usage, we can best determine the needs of our customers and advertisers.

We only collect your personally identifiable information if supplied to us, such as by subscribing to our Newsletter or Blog or using our Contact Us form found on our Site. We may use that information to send you our Newsletter or other notices of information but you will be able to opt out of receiving such notices at any time by contacting us.
We will not intentionally sell, rent, share or otherwise disclose any personally identifiable information to any third party for the purpose of allowing them to market their products or services to you. We may share non-personally identifiable information with other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. We may also disclose aggregated non-personally identifiable information of multiple users to potential advertisers, other third parties, our affiliate companies, and for other lawful purposes. We reserve the right to disclose personally identifiable information when needed to comply with the law or a legal process, cooperate with investigations of purported unlawful activities, to identify persons violating the law, in connection with the sale of part or all of our or our affiliates’ assets, or to enforce the Terms of Use.

You may not modify, copy, distribute, transmit, display, perform, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or otherwise exploit any of the foregoing without our prior written permission.

License And Site Access.

Subject to your compliance with the Terms of Use, we grant you a limited, revocable, license to access and make personal, non-commercial use of the Site Content (the “License”). No right, title or interest in or to the Site Content is transferred to you other than the License, and we reserve any and all rights in and to the Site Content not expressly granted to you.

Disclaimer & Limitation Of Liability.

THE SITE CONTENT AND ANY AND ALL PRODUCTS OR SERVICES MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. WWW, TOGETHER WITH ITS AFFILIATES, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS OR DIRECTORS (THE “RELEASED PARTIES”) SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT AND WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE REGARDING THE SITE CONTENT AND ANY AND ALL PRODUCTS OR SERVICES MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE CONTENT. THE RELEASED PARTIES MAKE NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT: (i) THE SITE CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; (ii) THE PROVISION OF THE SITE CONTENT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE OR ERROR-FREE; (iii) THE QUALITY OF ANY PRODUCTS, SERVICES, INFORMATION, OR OTHER MATERIAL PURCHASED OR OBTAINED BY YOU THROUGH THE USE OF THE SITE CONTENT WILL MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS; OR (iv) ANY ERRORS IN THE SITE CONTENT WILL BE CORRECTED. THE ENTIRE RISK FOR USE OF THE SITE CONTENT IS BORNE BY YOU.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL THE RELEASED PARTIES BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS THE SITE CONTENT, OR PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PURCHASED FROM USE THEREOF, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF, AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY (CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE) UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED. IN NO EVENT SHALL ANY OF THE RELEASED PARTIES’ LIABILITY FOR A CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SITE CONTENT OR ANY AND ALL PRODUCTS OR SERVICES MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE CONTENT EXCEED THE AGGREGATE AMOUNT OF WHAT YOU ACTUALLY PAY FOR A WWW PRODUCT AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF THE SITE CONTENT WHICH GIVES RISE TO YOUR CLAIM, IF ANY SUCH PURCHASE WAS MADE, AND IF NO SUCH PURCHASE WAS MADE, $10.00. Additionally, by using the Site Content you agree that we are not responsible for (i) any disclosure of your personal information made by you to a third party through your use of the Site Content; (ii) any disclosure of your personal information obtained illegally from us; or (iii) any accidental disclosure of your personal information made by us.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on liability or disclaimer of implied warranties, so all or a portion of the foregoing may not apply to you. In this case, our liability and the effect and/or duration of any implied warranty is limited to the minimum permissible under applicable law.

Indemnification.

You agree to indemnify and hold the Released Parties harmless from and against any and all liability, losses, claims, demands or costs of any kind, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation, arising out of or otherwise related to your use of the Site Content, a breach by you of the Terms of Use, your violation of any rights of another party, or any other damage caused by your use of the Site Content, whether directly or indirectly.

Choice of Law; Venue; Single Party Actions.

The Terms of Use and the relationship between you and us are governed by the laws of the State of Oklahoma without regard to any conflict of law provisions. For any dispute regarding the Terms of Use, the Site Content, or products or services purchased from us, you agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the federal and state courts located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and you agree that any such proceeding will be conducted solely on an individual basis and that you will not seek to have any such dispute heard as a class action, or in any other proceeding in which a party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. We agree to the same.

Adherence to Law.

By using the Site Content you represent that you are at least 18 years of age and you further agree to comply with any and all applicable laws, codes, or regulations governing your use of the Site Content. If you are located outside the U.S., then you are responsible for complying with any local laws in your jurisdiction that might impact your right to use the Site Content, and you represent that you have complied with any regulations or registration procedures required by applicable law to make the Terms of Use enforceable.

Entire Agreement.

The Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and us regarding your use of the Site Content and purchase of products or services as a result of the same, superseding any other agreements regarding the same; provided, however, that the purchase of products or services from us may have additional written terms related specifically to such purchase, such as a purchase order or warranty terms (“Purchase Terms”). The Purchase Terms are in addition to the terms and conditions in the Terms of Use. If there is any conflict between the Terms of Use and the Purchase Terms, the Purchase Terms will govern with respect to that particular purchase. The headings to the sections of the Terms of Use are used for convenience only and shall have no substantive meaning or impact on the interpretation of the Terms of Use. If any provision in the Terms of Use should be held illegal or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such provision shall be modified to the extent necessary to render it enforceable without losing its intent, or severed from the Terms of Use if no such modification is possible, and the other provisions of the Terms of Use shall remain in full force and effect.
