2. Copyright Notice and Restrictions
The contents of our Sites are protected by copyright and trademark laws, and are the property of CSC. Unless otherwise noted, you may access and use the information and materials within the Sites for your personal use. You may not change, modify, create derivative works of, delete, display, transmit, adapt, exploit, or copy for distribution or sale any information, material, trademark, or copyright on the Sites. You must obtain prior written permission from us or any other entity who owns intellectual property on the Sites before you may publish, distribute, display, or commercially exploit any material from the Sites. By using the Sites, you agree to abide by all copyright laws and other posted restrictions.
Other sites may link to our Sites by prior written permission only. To seek our permission, you may contact us using the contact information above. We reserve the right to rescind any permission granted to you or any organization which we approve for purposes of linking to our Sites, and to require termination of any such link to any of the Sites, at our sole discretion at any time.
4. Services, Events, Information, and Speaker Changes
The services, events, information, and speakers listed on our Sites are subject to change without notification.
5. Unsolicited Submissions
We welcome your comments about any of the Sites. However, we will not review or consider any unsolicited creative submissions or suggestions for topics at our seminars or within our newsletters or products.
This policy is intended to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings in the event that ideas developed by our staff might seem to be similar to any unsolicited ideas submitted to us. Accordingly, we must ask that you not send us any original creative ideas, suggestions or materials. If, despite our request, you send us any unsolicited, non-negotiated idea, suggestion, or material (“Unsolicited Submission”), outside of agreed upon homework and service/program- based work, it shall become our property. We will not be subject to any obligation of confidence for any Unsolicited Submission, and we will not be liable for any use or disclosure of any Unsolicited Submission.
In the case that you submit something to us and it is unsolicited, we will exclusively own all rights to the Unsolicited Submission worldwide, and we will be entitled to the unrestricted use of the Unsolicited Submission for any purpose, without compensation or notification to the provider of the Unsolicited Submission. Given this fact, we ask that you refrain from submitting Unsolicited Submissions, including non-negotiated creative projects or ideas, to us, particularly those that are confidential or personal to you.
6. Forums and Creation of User Accounts
A “forum” means any message board, chat room, user review forum, or other interactive service appearing on any of the Sites and includes both public boards and private folders (“Forum”).
You must register in accordance with instructions that you will find on the Sites in order to contribute to any Forum by creating a user account (“User Account”). You will be asked to create a publicly viewable user name or screen name or member name (“User Name”) and password. We advise you not to use your real name or the real name of another person as your User Name and to exercise discretion concerning any material you post. In addition to selecting a User Name and password, you may be requested to provide certain personally identifiable information about yourself, such as your name, declaration of age over 18 years, address, telephone number, and email address. You are responsible for maintaining and updating the information in your User Account, should it change after you initially create the User Account. Should you wish to deactivate your User Account, please follow directions on the Sites or send an email to us at the contact information above. While we make every effort to remove information in our database, it is not always possible to completely remove such information. We also may create a policy or practice of deleting inactive User Accounts after a certain period of time. Even if you choose to deactivate your User Account, we reserve the right to contact you regarding your User Account and your use of the Sites.
You may not post on any Forum, or send to any other Forum user or to our staff, any material that is abusive, vulgar, threatening, harassing, libelous, defamatory, obscene, invades a person’s privacy, violates any intellectual or other property rights, or that would otherwise violate any law. You may not use any Forum in a commercial manner. You may not post material that solicits funds, or that advertises or solicits goods or services. You may not post material known to be false. You may not post messages that contain stock touts. You may not post or transmit any information, software, or other material that contains a virus or other harmful component.
By posting on the Sites, you grant (or warrant that the owner of such rights has expressly granted) us and/or relevant affiliated companies, the worldwide, perpetual, nonexclusive right to use your questions, comments, and postings, in their original or edited form, in television programs, books, articles, commentaries, or in any other medium now known or later developed. You also warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content you have posted and that the public posting and use of such content by us will not infringe the rights of any third party. Additionally, you warrant that any “moral rights” in posted materials have been waived. You are not entitled to any compensation for any materials you may post on the Sites or in the Forums.

Applicable law may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you. We do not endorse, warrant, or guarantee any speakers, products, or services offered on the Sites or those we link to. We are not a party to, and do not monitor, any transaction between users and third party providers of products or services.
9. Limitation of Liability
Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, will we or any of our licensors or suppliers be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the materials or information on the Sites, or any products or services provided pursuant to the Sites, even if advised of the possibility of such damages.
Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages (including but not limited to lost data), so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. In no event shall the total liability to you by us or any of our licensors or suppliers for all damages, losses, and causes of action (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by you to us, if any, for accessing the Sites.
Under no circumstances will we be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused to you in connection with your use of any advice, goods or services you receive from a guest speaker on our Sites or at one of our events.
We are also not responsible or liable for any loss or damage that is caused or alleged to have been caused to our guest speakers in connection with the display of their photo, name, or biography posted on our Sites or in our marketing materials.
10. Limits of Professional Advice
The information contained in or made available through the Sites (including but not limited to information contained on message boards, in the Monday Morning Business Coach, in text files, or in chats) cannot replace or substitute for the services of trained professionals in any field, including, but not limited to, financial, medical, psychological, or legal. In particular, you should regularly consult a doctor in all matters relating to physical or mental health, particularly concerning any symptoms that may require diagnosis or medical attention. Neither we nor our partners, or any of their affiliates, will be liable for any direct, indirect, consequential, special, exemplary or other damages that may result, including but not limited to economic loss, injury, illness or death. You alone are responsible and accountable for your decisions, actions and results in life, and by your use of the Sites, you agree not to attempt to hold us liable or to hold us liable for any such decisions, actions or results, at any time, under any circumstance.
11. It is Your Work: Earnings Disclaimer
We believe that hard work, adding value, building your work life, and serving others with excellence and constancy create success, provided external factors (such as the economy or corporate culture) do not impede or impair your success. Our programs are intended to help you create success and to make a difference in the world. Our programs take a lot of work and discipline just like any worthwhile endeavor or professional continuing education program.
Please don’t enroll in our programs or services if you are hoping to skip the hard work; we only want people dedicated to real professional development who want to add value and move humanity forward.
As stipulated by law, we cannot and do not make any guarantees about your ability to get results or earn any money with our ideas, information, tools or strategies. Your results in life are up to you. We want to help by giving great content, direction, and strategies. We give you a 30-day money-back guarantee, so if you determine, for any reason, that our online programs are not for you, just ask for your money back.
You should know that all programs, services and events offered by CSC are for educational and informational purposes only. NOTHING ON ANY OF OUR SITES, OR ANY OF OUR CONTENT OR CURRICULUM, IS A PROMISE OR GUARANTEE OF RESULTS OR FUTURE EARNINGS, AND WE DO NOT OFFER ANY LEGAL, MEDICAL, MENTAL HEALTH OR TAX ADVICE. ANY FINANCIAL NUMBERS REFERENCED ON OUR SITES ARE ILLUSTRATIVE OF CONCEPTS ONLY AND SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AVERAGE EARNING, EXACT EARNINGS, OR PROMISES FOR ACTUAL OR FUTURE PERFORMANCE.
Making decisions based on any information presented in our products, events, services, or Sites, should be done only with the knowledge that you could experience the risk of loss of any personal or business endeavor. Use caution and always consult your accountant, lawyer or professional advisor before acting on this or any information related to a lifestyle change or your business or finances.
You alone are responsible and accountable for your decisions, actions and results in life, and by your registration on our Sites, you agree not to attempt to hold us liable or to hold us liable for your decisions, actions or results, at any time, under any circumstance.
12. Parental Permission
The Sites are not directed to children under the age of 18 and we will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18.
We strongly recommend that parents participate in their children’s exploration of the internet and any online services and use their browser’s parental controls to limit the areas of the internet to which their children have access. We may, at our discretion, require users under 18 to obtain the consent of a parent or guardian to view certain content, and we may limit access to certain content to users above a specified age. You agree to abide by any such restrictions, and not to help anyone avoid these restrictions.
13. Explicit Language and Mature Content
On our Sites we will occasionally discuss adult topics using adult language relating to personal and professional growth. We will also occasionally use adult or profane language to emphasize a point, connect with our clients or surprise our audience (though we will never be lewd and will use tact and discretion). Users who are uncomfortable with such topics or language should not use our Sites.
14. Confidentiality and Non-Compete
15. PRIVACY CONSIDERATIONS AND POLICY
We are committed to protecting your privacy and security and explain below in detail the steps we take to do so. We operate these Sites from offices in the United States of America.

Persons who choose to access these Sites from other locations do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

17. What Personal Information We Collect, How We Collect it, and Why We Collect It
We collect your personal information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select on our Sites. If you register for a service, for example, the information is used to reserve your place, to track your preferences, and to keep you informed about the service and related events. As a visitor to our Sites, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as registering for a product, service, seminar or participating in a contest, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, we may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, telephone, declaration that you are at least 18 years of age, credit card, and other personal information. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
If you supply us with your contact information, you may receive periodic e-mails, mailings or calls from us with information on new products and services, important issues, or upcoming events. If you wish to be removed from any postal, email, phone, or other lists, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or clicking the unsubscribe link when relevant. You can also write us or call us at the contact information above. Please provide us with your exact name, email address, mailing address, and phone. We will be sure your name and other personal information is removed from the appropriate lists immediately.
When you use our Sites, we or our authorized technology services provider may also collect certain technical and routing information from you to facilitate your use of the Sites and their services. We use this information to administer the Sites and to understand and measure traffic patterns on the Sites so that we know which areas of our Sites are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our Sites. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying you or any user individually. We may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.
This data is often tracked by us by our technology services provider by using “cookies” during your visit. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables us to record your password for the site, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.)
