Client Administrators and Users
Each Entity shall appoint an Client Administrator, in accordance with the procedure EcoServices establishes. The Client Administrator shall have the sole responsibility for confirming on the part of the Client Administrator's Entity that the Entity employs the person seeking to become a qualified User before EcoServices grants that person User status. The Client Administrator shall be solely responsible for validating the User's citizenship and shall not approve any employee as an User on an Entity's behalf if such employee's citizenship status would cause that employee to violate US export laws and regulations if permitted to access the Website. The Client Administrator shall have full authority to act on User's behalf in all matters relating to the Website, including but not limited to, granting or denying User access to the Website on Entity's behalf. EcoServices agrees to adopt appropriate security measures to limit access to the Website to Users identified by Client Administrators and authorized by EcoServices in accordance with this provision.
A User may access the Website only with a valid username, password and any additional form of security that EcoServices, at its sole discretion, may require. EcoServices may change such requirements at any time without notice. Each User must have a unique email address.
Users shall not share user IDs and/or passwords.
If any User who had access to or use of the Website or any applications is no longer employed or retained by the Entity under which that person became a User, or that employee's status with the Entity changes such that the Entity no longer wishes that User to have access to the Website on Entity's behalf, the Entity's Client agrees to take any steps necessary to ensure that such User no longer has access to and use of the Website.
The Client Administrator agrees to notify EcoServices immediately when an individual having been granted access ceases to be an employee of the Client Administrator's company, ceases to be retained by the Client Administrator's company, or changes to another division of the Client Administrator's company.
The Client Administrator may not grant access or use of the Website to any contractor, subcontractor, contract or temporary employee, sub-supplier or other third party without EcoServices' prior written approval, which approval EcoServices may withhold in its sole discretion.
The Client Administrator agrees that all User accounts, which allow a Client Administrator's User access to the Website, are for individual use only, and are not transferable.
The Client Administrator agrees to notify EcoServices immediately if the Client Administrator's Entity's legal status changes, including but not limited to name changes or mergers.
The Client Administrator agrees to notify EcoServices promptly of any change in any of its Entity's Users' citizenship.
The Client Administrator agrees to notify EcoServices promptly of any instance(s) of unauthorized access that violates the terms of these Terms and Conditions.
Unless otherwise first notified by the Client Administrator, EcoServices assumes that access to the Website by means of a valid username, password, and other identified additional form of security is authorized by the Client Administrator.
The Client Administrator agrees to cooperate and assist EcoServices in routine system audits to verify User information.
The Client Administrator agrees to notify EcoServices promptly if a new Client Administrator has been appointed or if the Client Administrator will no longer be employed by the relevant Entity.
If EcoServices is unsuccessful in attempts to contact the Client Administrator after a period of thirty (30) days, all Users of the Client Administrator's Entity may be denied access to the Website.

All EcoServices data, knowledge, and information disclosed on or delivered to the Website that is identified with an appropriate legend, marking, stamp or other written identification at the time of disclosure or delivery (or subsequently identified in writing within thirty (30) days thereafter) as proprietary or competition sensitive, shall be treated by User as proprietary.
The User agrees that proprietary information will not be disclosed to third parties and will protect EcoServices proprietary information against public disclosure for a period extending into perpetuity or as specified in associated proprietary agreement(s).

Limitation of Liability
Information that User sends to or receives from EcoServices is subject to interception, misappropriation, and misuse by third parties. Neither EcoServices nor any of its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, or other representatives shall be liable for any damages or costs whatsoever, including without limitation any compensatory, consequential, incidental, indirect, special, treble, or punitive damages, or any costs and fees arising out of or in connection with use of the Website.
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN ANY APPLICABLE ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS, ECOSERVICES DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THIS WEBSITE IS ACCURATE, COMPLETE, OR CURRENT.
Export Controlled Technical Data
Technical data exchanged on the Website may be subject to United States Export Control laws and regulations ("Export Laws"). User may have access to information classified under the United States Munitions List and, as such, subject to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations ("ITAR"), (22 CFR Parts 120-130); or the Commerce Control List and, as such, subject to the Export Administration Regulations ("EAR", 15 CFR Parts 730-774). Accordingly, User agrees to strictly abide by all applicable U.S. Export Control laws and regulations governing the export, re-export, transfer or re-transfer of technical data.
Accordingly, each User will comply with all requirements of ITAR and EAR, including the requirement for obtaining any U.S. export license or other export authorization, if applicable prior to export, re-export, transfer or re-transfer to non-U.S. persons and entities. Furthermore, User shall first obtain the written consent of EcoServices prior to export, re-export, transfer or re-transfer of any EcoServices technical data or information, or submitting a request for authority to export, re-export, transfer or transfer any such technical data. Technical data that is controlled by ITAR or EAR shall not be released to non-U.S. individuals, employees, companies, or other entities, whether within or outside the U.S., by a U.S. person unless the U.S. person obtains, in advance of the transfer or export EcoServices' express written approval and any appropriate export license or other authorization from the U.S. Government. This requirement for prior U.S. Government authorization also applies to the return to the country of origin of foreign origin technical data that incorporates any U.S. origin technical know-how, content, improvements, or other design modifications. User's obligations to obtain EcoServices' express written approval prior to making any exports, re-exports, transfers, or re-transfers and to adhere to ITAR and EAR shall survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and Conditions and shall survive the termination of User's access to the Website for any reason whatsoever.
U.S. export law prohibits U.S. persons and companies from exporting or providing services to countries on which the U.S. Government maintains an embargo or sanction, or to those entities and individuals on the U.S. government's lists of restricted or denied parties. To comply with these export laws, EcoServices will conduct screening of all prospective Users before granting said users access to the Website. EcoServices retains the absolute right to refuse access to the Website to any User for any reason, and explicitly retains the right to refuse access to the Website to any User who has been denied export privileges by the U.S. Government in any of the aforementioned ways.
A prospective User who contests his/her status as a prohibited party should contact his/her Client Administrator. The Client Administrator shall verify prohibited party status and must provide EcoServices written certification and request access be granted to the Website to those prospective Users that were misidentified as prohibited parties.
User hereby releases and agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless EcoServices, its subsidiaries, affiliates, vendors, and the employees, directors, officers, agents, representatives, and subcontractors of each of them, from and against all liabilities, claims, damages and losses, of any nature, including, but not limited to, any and all damages, of whatever type; costs; fees; expenses; and judgments incident thereto for all injuries to any and all persons including User's officers, agents, and employees, and for any and all lost profits, business interruption, loss of information or programs or other data on either party's information handling system, loss of or damage to property, and loss of use thereof, arising directly or indirectly out of or in connection with use of the Website provided under or in connection with these Terms and Conditions, whether or not caused by any act or omission whatsoever of EcoServices, its subsidiaries, affiliates, vendors, and the employees, directors, officers, agents, representative, and subcontractors of each of them. In providing such data on the Website, EcoServices, its subsidiaries, affiliates, vendors, and the employees, directors, officers, agents, representative, and subcontractors of each of them, are deemed to be acting in an advisory capacity only and at no time shall they be deemed to act as employees or agents of User or User's Entity either directly or indirectly.
