CarrotSticks, Inc. Terms of Service
The CarrotSticks Web Site (the "Site") is an online math game for students provided by CarrotSticks, Inc. ("CarrotSticks", ìweî, ìusî and ìour"), subject to your compliance with the terms of service (TOS) set forth below. Any references to "you" or "your" refer to both you and any person on whose behalf you act, if any. Please read this document carefully before accessing or using the site. THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CONSTITUTE A BINDING LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND CARROTSTICKS. If you are a minor, your guardian or parent must agree to the terms and conditions in this TOS. They will take full responsibility for all obligations under this agreement.
BY USING THE SITE OR BY CLICKING A BOX THAT STATES YOU ACCEPT OR AGREE TO THE TOS, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE AN ADULT AND ARE EITHER ACCEPTING THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS TOS ON BEHALF OF YOURSELF OR ON BEHALF OF YOUR CHILD. IN BOTH CASES, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU PERSONALLY WILL BE BOUND BY ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
If you are a minor, and click a box that states you accept or agree to the TOS, you understand that you can not later void this agreement as a minor with CarrotSticks without losing access to your account. Your parents will be held responsible for any obligations you have incurred while accessing the features and functions of the Site.
If you do not wish to be bound by these terms of service or choose not to accept the TOS, you may not access or use the site. If by any means you circumvent a web page, pop-up, or modal box that prompts you to read, review, accept or agree to the TOS, then by accessing or otherwise using the service, you agree to be bound by the terms of the then-current TOS.
CARROTSTICKS MAY MODIFY THIS AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME, and such modifications shall be effective immediately upon posting of the modified agreement on the site. You agree to review the agreement periodically to be aware of such modifications and your continued access or use of the site shall be deemed your conclusive acceptance of the modified agreement.
