Effective date: May 21, 2018

Welcome to Holdette. Please read on to learn the rules and restrictions that govern your use of our website (all features of our website, collectively, the “Services”). If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding these terms or the Services, please contact us.

These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) are a binding contract between you (the “User”) and Holdette (“Holdette”, “our,” “we” and “us”). By accessing or using our Services, you agree to and accept all of the Terms; otherwise, you don’t have the right to use or access the Services. Your using the Services in any way means that you agree to all of these Terms, and these Terms will remain in effect while you use the Services. If you are accessing or using our Services on behalf of another person or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms on such person or entity’s behalf, and that such person or entity will be responsible to Holdette if you violate these Terms. These Terms include the provisions in this document, as well as those in the Privacy Policy.

These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with Holdette with respect to its Services (each, a “Related Agreement”). To the extent these Terms conflict with a Related Agreement, the terms of the Related Agreement shall control.

Modification

Holdette reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify these Terms at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will either post a notification of the modification on our website or otherwise provide you with notice of the change. The date of the last modification will also be posted at the beginning of these Terms. It is your responsibility to check from time to time for updates. By continuing to access or use the Services, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by any modified Terms.
