Customer Reviews/Ratings

Customer reviews and ratings reflect the aggregated responses of actual customers--typically many thousands of consumers--surveyed at the point-of-sale for each online merchant. As such, these ratings are informative for those wishing to use them, but they do not guarantee any level of performance by an online merchant or other third party in any given transaction.

Users agree not to take any actions for the purpose of manipulating or distorting, or that may undermine the integrity and accuracy of the customer reviews. Furthermore, users agree not to post any review that is false or that contains profanity, personal attacks upon individuals, ethnic slurs, personal information such as credit card numbers, material that violates another's legal rights, or other offensive or inappropriate content for a general shopping audience. By posting a review, the poster thereby represents that the review is based upon an actual online shopping experience with the merchant being reviewed and irrevocably assigns all copyright and other intellectual property rights in the review to eC-T. eC-T may publish the review on its Web site or elsewhere in its discretion and reserves the right to remove or alter the content of any review deemed offensive or in violation of its policies, and all decisions by eC-T in this regard are final.

Limitation on Liability

Under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall eC-T or its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers or any other party involved in creating, producing, transmitting, or distributing eC-T or related services be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, exemplary and punitive damages arising from or in connection with the use or inability to use eC-T or any content provided by or through this site, or resulting from unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data, or other information that is sent or received, including but not limited to damages for lost profits, use, data or other intangibles, even if eC-T has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages, so some of the above may not apply to you in such jurisdictions, liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.
