Your access to and use of the Sites is subject to these following terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) and all applicable laws. By accessing and browsing the any of the Sites, you accept, without limitation or qualification, the Terms and Conditions.

1. You may have entered into a separate agreement with GSD&M governing your access to and use of certain functions and features of particular Sites.

2. You should assume that everything you see or read on the Sites is copyrighted unless otherwise noted and may not be used except as provided in these Terms and Conditions or in the text on the Sites without the written permission of GSD&M.
