If you are entering into this agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind such entity to the Terms, in which case the terms "you" or "your" shall refer to such entity.

If you register to become a Member or a Merchant you may be required to indicate your acceptance to these Terms during the registration process.

Amendment

We may amend or terminate any Terms at any time and such amendment or termination will be effective at the time we post the revised Terms on the Site. Each time you use the Service you should visit and review the then current Terms that apply to your transactions and use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service after we have posted revised Terms signifies your acceptance of such revised Terms. If you are dissatisfied with the Service, its content or any Terms (including as modified), you agree that your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Service. The Terms are the entire agreement between you and UTC with respect to your use of the Service.

Sharing

For some features, the Service may allow you to share your private information with other Users and to publish this information on the Internet. You will need to take specific action for this to occur, and the Service will make a reasonable attempt to explain the consequences of your actions. UTC disclaims all liability and responsibility for any consequences (including, but not limited to, unforeseen consequences) of sharing private information, or for you accidentally sharing information that you intended to keep private.

You may have the right to "opt-in" for push notifications from Merchants. If you choose to opt-in, UTC will deliver push notifications to your mobile device from such Merchants. UTC is not responsible for the content of such push notifications.
