USE OF THIRD PARTY SELLERS’ WEBSITES

Through our Website, you may be given the opportunity to visit a third party website (“Third Party Website”) to purchase (or to obtain more information) certain content, products or services which are sold through a person or company other than us or our affiliates (collectively, “Third Party Sellers”). 

We will attempt to notify you when you are dealing with a Third Party Seller by opening a new browser window or otherwise notifying you that you are leaving our Website.  However, we shall incur no liability if we do not so notify you. For example, if you are directed to a website that is not the Website or one that is operated by Alfred, or see a phrase such as "powered by" or "brought to you by" followed by the name of a person or company other than Alfred, then you are likely on, or about to enter, a Third Party Website. Third Party Sellers may request that you agree to certain terms and conditions of use in order to use the website and to purchase their products or services or to obtain additional information from them. 

In addition to a Third Party Website that you may access to as described above, there may be links to websites operated by companies other than Alfred (“External Websites”) that are not contractors who provide content or services through our Website. These links may be found in advertisements, referenced within content, or placed beside the names or logos of sponsors. Alfred has not reviewed or monitored the terms and conditions of these websites and it does not endorse and is not responsible for their terms and conditions, even if we provide a link to those sites. These Terms do not apply to such sites.  

Your use of Third Party Websites and External Websites shall be solely between you and the third party and subject to the applicable terms and conditions of such websites. We hereby disclaim all responsibility and liability for your use of these websites, including but not limited to, the reliability or the performance of such websites.

If you choose to link to one of these Third Party Websites or External Websites, you should review the terms and conditions posted on the other site to understand how that website governs the terms and conditions of your use. If you have any questions about these other companies’ data practices, you should review their privacy policies.

General and Miscellaneous

If any provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or void for any reason, the remaining provisions hereof shall be unaffected and remain in full force and effect. These Terms shall for all purposes be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California as those laws are applied to contracts entered into and to be performed entirely in California, without regard to conflicts of law provisions.

The failure by us to enforce at any time any of the provisions of these Terms, or the failure of us to require at any time performance by you of any of the provisions hereof, shall in no way be construed as a present or future waiver of such provisions, nor in any way affect the right of us to enforce such provision thereafter.
