These Terms of Use ("Terms") describe the rules for using this website and mobile application (collectively, the “Platform”).

By using this Platform, you agree to the most recent Terms.  We will notify you of any changes to these Terms by posting a notice of the changes on this or a similar page of this Platform.  It is your responsibility to review these Terms each time you use this Platform. By continuing to use this Platform, you consent to any changes to our Terms.

This Platform is intended for use within the United States only.
