Accessing A-SCEND and Account Security

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend A-SCEND, and any service or material we provide through the A-SCEND platform, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of A-SCEND is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some or all of A-SCEND, or to users, including registered users.

You are responsible for both:

  • Making all arrangements necessary for You to have access to A-SCEND.
  • Ensuring that all persons who access A-SCEND through Your internet connection are aware of these Terms of Use and comply with them. You agree that Company is not obligated to inquire as to the authority or propriety of any use or action taken under your password and will not be responsible to You or any third party for any loss that arises from such use or action.

You also acknowledge that Your account is personal to You and agree not to provide any other person with access to A-SCEND or portions of it using Your user name, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of Your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that You exit from Your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing Your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record Your password or other personal information.

We have the right to disable any user name, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by You or provided to You, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, You have violated any provision of these Terms of Use.

The Company has the right to suspend Your access to A-SCEND for any reason or no reason at all, including if Client who authorized Your access to A-SCEND has failed to pay the Company pursuant to any and all sales contract(s), or if You are no longer a current employee and/or authorized representative of Client who authorized Your access to A-SCEND.
