User’s continued use of or access to the Platform, following the posting of revised, updated, or otherwise modified EULA, means, signals, and indicates that User accepts and agrees to abide by the Changes. User is expected to routinely access, check, and monitor the EULA so that User is on notice and remains abreast of any Changes, as the Changes are binding on User.
E. Reservation of Right to Amend, Withdraw, or Suspend. SIQ, from time to time, and in its sole and absolute discretion and without prior notice, may withdraw, suspend, or amend the Platform, in part or in whole, and any service or material SIQ provides or delivers on the Platform.

SIQ, from time to time, and in its sole and absolute discretion and without prior notice, may restrict, limit, or suspend access to or use of some components or the entirety of the Platform.
F. Availability, Errors, and Inaccuracies. SIQ is regularly, routinely, consistently, and constantly updating product- and/or service-offerings on the Platform. As a result, SIQ may experience delays in updating information on the Platform and in Our advertisements, marketing, or promotions on other websites, other webpages, and other online multi-media platforms. In addition, the information found on the Platform may contain errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Therefore, SIQ, in its sole and absolute discretion and without prior notice or liability, reserves the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time.
III. Access to and Use of the Platform
B. Registration Personal to User. User acknowledges that User’s Account is personal, confidential, private, and exclusive to User, and User agrees not to provide any third-party individual or entity with the use, access, or means by which to use or access this Platform or portions of the Platform using User’s registration information, which includes, but is not limited to, name (first and last), email address, postal address, telephone number, login credentials, scholastic institution, educational district, state, municipality, university, company, or other legal entity with which the User is affiliated, and other identifying information (collectively, the “Registration Information”).
C. Memberships. To create an Account to use and access the Platform, and for ongoing use and access to the Platform, the User, or an entity acting on behalf of the User, is required to pay SIQ: (1) a fee, or (2) consistent with another contract between SIQ and a User’s scholastic institution, educational district, state, municipality, university, company, or other legal entity (a “Membership”). The Membership will entitle the User to full, uninterrupted use of and access to the Platform, which may include features outlined and set forth in Schedule 3 to this EULA. There are different levels of Membership. A User’s access to the features outlined and set forth in Schedule 3 are related to: (1) the level of features selected as indicated by the Membership and the fee thereof, or (2) the contract between SIQ and the User’s scholastic institution, educational district, state, municipality, university, company, or other legal entity, whichever was entered into later.
D. Renewal and Cancellation. The User’s Membership will automatically renew at the then-applicable fee, or as otherwise, indicated in User’s contract with SIQ, unless SIQ, in its sole and absolute discretion, elects to adjust the quantity of the value of the fee at renewal. User acknowledges and agrees that SIQ’s Membership will automatically renew in accordance with the foregoing, unless either SIQ or User, or an entity acting on behalf of the User, elects to cancel the Membership. In the event that User, or the entity acting on behalf of the User, fails to pay, for any reason, the fee for Membership access, User shall not be permitted to have full, interrupted use of and access to the Platform. Except when required by law, fees for the Membership are non-refundable.
E. Unauthorized Access; Security Awareness. User shall immediately notify SIQ of any unauthorized access to, use of, or disclosure of User’s Registration Information and/or Account, or any other security incident or breach. User shall exit from the Platform at the end of each session. User should exercise special caution when using or accessing the Platform from a public or shared computer, publicly accessible network, or other nonsecure network-based platforms, for the purpose of preventing third parties from accessing, using, or disclosing User’s Registration Information and/or Account. In the event of actual, imminent, potential, or threatened access to, use of, or disclosure of User’s Registration Information, or in the event that User has otherwise violated the EULA herein, SIQ reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion and without liability, to disable, restrict, limit, or deactivate User’s access to or use of the Platform.
IV. Thirty Party Sites and Resources; Third-Party Software
B. Applications and Services. The Platform may include, directly or indirectly, Third-Party Sites and Resources. Because we do not control, directly or indirectly, Third-Party Sites and Resources, User acknowledges and agrees that SIQ is not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any Third-Party Sites and Resources, including the performance, accuracy, integrity, quality, legality, usefulness, or safety of, or intellectual property rights relating to, Third-Party Sites and Resources. SIQ has no obligation or commitment to monitor Third-Party Sites and Resources. SIQ, in its sole and absolute discretion and without prior notice, may remove, limit, suspend, or otherwise restrict access to any Third-Party Sites and Resources (in whole or part). The availability of Third-Party Sites and Resources through and/or on the Platform does not imply, directly or indirectly, Our endorsement or sponsorship of, or Our affiliation with any third party.
C. Links to Other Sites and Resources. If the Platform contains links to Third-Party Sites and Resources, these links are provided for User’s convenience only. This may include links contained in advertisements and other marketing endeavors, including banner advertisements and sponsored links. SIQ has neither ownership nor control over the contents of those Third-Party Sites and Resources, and SIQ is not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, to User for any loss, damage, injury, harm, or cost arising from, related to, or in connection with User’s use of or reliance on the contents, goods, services, offers, advertisements, or promotions of the Third-Party Sites and Resources. If User decides to access any of the Third-Party Sites and Resources linked to the Platform, User does so entirely at User’s own risk and peril. By accessing such Third-Party Sites and Resources, User is bound to those terms and conditions of use of the third parties owning or controlling the Third-Party Sites and Resources.
V. Communications; Linking, Framing, and Social Media Features
B. Linking to the Platform. User may not link to the Platform from Third-Party Sites and Resources, or other multi-media platforms, nor may User link, or transmit a link, to the Platform to any unauthorized third-party individuals or entities. Notwithstanding, nothing herein prevents a User from sharing an “Internal Link” to another authorized User. An “Internal Link” is a web link that may be generated by a User, and which is exclusively accessible (and the contents reviewable) by other Users affiliated with, or employed by, the linking User’s scholastic institution or educational district, corporation, limited liability company, municipality, state, or other legal entity. Contents of the User-generated link may include (but are not limited to) summaries or reports of the User’s Assets.

If, however, the User believes, in good faith, that a third party (or other User) has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against You, in connection with Your authorized use of or access to the Platform, the DMCA permits You to send SIQ a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA, as available at https://www.copyright.gov/dmca-directory/faq.html.
