RESPONDENT TERMS & CONDITIONS
Last updated: November 9, 2016
- Use of the Program. The Program involves an assessment of companies’ IT environments through the use of hundreds of TechIndicatorTM assessment metrics. This assessment gives companies an objective, systematic tool for scoring technology operations, analyzing risk, establishing benchmarks, and measuring the potential value of what an enterprise can gain. You agree that the scoring and information provided by the Company is subjective and unbiased. The Company has no obligation to provide you or any third party with a score, advice, or analysis of your choosing or liking. Nor will the Company adjust its score, advice, or analysis upon request. As part of the Program, you are permitted to temporarily download one copy of all analysis and result materials (the “Materials”) per assessed company for personal, non-commercial transitory viewing only. You may not sell, transfer, or otherwise distribute the Materials. Except where otherwise agreed by the Company in writing: you may not “mirror” the Materials on any server; you may not modify or copy the Materials. In some circumstances, the analysis of a company may be requested and paid for by a third party. In those situations, the third party is entitled to view the Materials as set out above, and the assessed company must make any request for the Materials through that third party. You agree not to decompile or reverse engineer any software contained on the Company’s website or the Program.
