1.1 The Service is owned and operated by InSync Training, 153 Boston Post Rd # 111, East Lyme, CT 06333. The Service offers Users access to information, resources, interpersonal networking services and other content assets owned and/or licensed by InSync Training primarily through InSync Training’s Hub website (the "website") which is an integral part of the Service.
1.2 Any visitor to the website and any Member (as defined below) in any category is referred to hereafter as a "User". A User must be 18 years or older to become a Member and establish a Member Profile. "Member Profile" means the account registered to a User pursuant to the registration procedures for the Service upon such User becoming a Member of the Service. A User who becomes a Member of the Service and establishes a Member Profile through the registration process is referred to herein as a "Registered User" or a "Member". The terms of this Agreement apply to all Users, whether or not such User is a Member. The Member for any Member account is liable for all activities conducted through that account.
2. Personal Information
2.1 When a User registers to be a Member of the Service the User must provide
contact information and general information about the User and the User's organization.
The User will also be able to create a Username and Password and to provide other
optional information. This information is maintained in a Member Profile which the
Member controls. Information collected in a Member Profile is used to better understand
the Member's use of the Service and to support related transactions made on the
website. Each Member will automatically be placed on a list to receive updates and
communications related to new materials and opportunities posted on the Hub. If a
Member wishes to stop receiving such communications, the Member may opt-out at any
time by following instructions on the bottom of the e-mail or by adjusting the contact
preferences in the Member’s Member Profile. InSync Training may also use Member
Profile information to occasionally notify Members about important functionality changes
to the Hub, or offerings and services from InSync Training. If a Member wishes to stop
receiving these communications, the Member may opt-out at any time by following
instructions on the bottom of each e-mail or by adjusting the contact preferences in the
Member’s Member Profile.
2.2 A membership has a term of one year. At the end of each membership year, the Member will be notified of such fact and the Member shall then: (i) renew the membership; (ii) change from one membership category to another; or (iii) cancel the membership.
3. Personal Information to Other Parties
3.1 InSync Training does not sell e-mail addresses or other general information that Members provide in the registration process to other parties. InSync Training may use e-mail addresses and other personally identifiable information to communicate with Members who initiate communications with InSync Training.
3.2 InSync Training may disclose your personally identifiable information if it believes in good faith that it is required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, a subpoena or other legal process. InSync Training may also disclose this information if it has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating this Agreement or to protect the safety of Users and the public.
4. Non-transferability of Membership
InSync Training grants to each Member a personal, revocable, nonexclusive, non-assignable, and nontransferable license to use and display the information offered by the Service on any machine(s) of which the Member is the primary user. Each Member acknowledges by becoming a Member that the Member may not sub-license, transfer, sell, or assign this license or the Service without written authorization from InSync Training. Any attempt to sub-license, transfer, sell, loan, or assign the license is void and of no effect and may result in the immediate termination of the Member's membership.
5. Intellectual Property Rights - No Duplication or Redistribution
The Service provides certain services and benefits for Registered Users and derives its revenue from the production and distribution of those services and benefits for the exclusive use of Registered Users. Members acknowledge that the duplication and/or redistribution of content, information, data, or other intellectual property gained through access to the Service to any other party is a violation of applicable copyright laws and causes harm to InSync Training and the Service. Each Member by becoming a Member agrees that duplication and/or redistribution of any materials to any non-Member shall in each instance require prior written authorization from an authorized agent of InSync Training. Each Member further agrees that any specific instance in which written authorization is granted by InSync Training, does not authorize the Member to duplicate and/or redistribute any other material than that for which written authorization was granted.
As part of the registration process each Registered User will select a Username and Password. Each Member shall provide InSync Training with accurate, complete, and regularly updated Member Profile information. Each Member agrees to notify InSync Training by e-mail at email@example.com of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of the Member's account, or any known or suspected breach of security, including loss, theft, or unauthorized disclosure of the Member's Username and/or Password. Each Member is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the Member's Password. Any fraudulent, abusive, or other illegal activity will result in the termination of the Member's account and membership privileges, at InSync Training's sole discretion, and the Member may be reported to appropriate law-enforcement agencies.
7. Personal Information Security
InSync Training implements a variety of standard web security measures to maintain the safety and security of Members' personal information. A non-Member User may use the site anonymously as a visitor, but any personal information provided to become a Registered User will be protected by secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems. It is recommended that if a Member shares a computer or uses a computer that is accessed by the general public (i.e., a university or library, etc.), the Member should close the browser window when finished with a session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access a Member's personal information.
9. Termination of Membership
Associate Memberships are for an indefinite term and are effective until terminated by the Member or InSync Training. Paid memberships are effective for a term of one year. At the end of the one year term, the membership is renewed or canceled (see Section 2.2) or downgraded to Associate level. Although it is assumed that all Memberships will remain active for one year, a Member may terminate his or her Membership and the right to use the Service at any time by sending a letter on company letterhead, stating your reasons for terminating, to InSync Training. InSync Training may terminate a Member's Account or access rights to the Service immediately without notice, if in InSync Training's sole discretion, the Member fails to comply with any term or provision of this Agreement. Upon termination of a Member's Membership, the Member must destroy all materials obtained from the Service and all copies thereof. InSync Training may terminate the Service, or any element of the Service, at any time without notice. Refunds will not be issued for canceled or terminated memberships.

- The Member will not supply false or defamatory information in any Current Research project.
- The Member will report to InSync Training any false or defamatory information of which the Member becomes aware.

12. Third Party Links
In an attempt to provide increased value to Members, InSync Training may provide various third party website links from the website. However, even if the third party is affiliated with InSync Training, InSync Training has no control over these linked sites each of which may have separate privacy and data collection practices, and all of which are independent of InSync Training. Neither InSync Training nor any of its affiliates and contractors, have any responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. These linked sites are including on the website for Members' convenience only and each Member therefore accesses them at such Member's own risk. Nonetheless, InSync Training seeks to protect the integrity of the website and the links placed upon it and therefore requests feedback on not only the website, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).
13. Third Party Content
The Service is a distributor of content supplied by third parties and Members. Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, Members, or any other User, are those of the respective author(s) or distributor(s) and not of InSync Training.
14. Chain Letter and Pyramid Schemes
Transmitting chain letters or pyramid schemes of any kind is strictly prohibited on the Service's mail and message systems and is considered a nuisance. In addition, certain chain letters and pyramid schemes are illegal under state and federal law. Letters or messages that offer a product or service based on the structure of a chain letter are also of questionable legality. At a minimum, they are a waste of the Service's resources and are not permitted.
15. Solicitation and Advertising
A Member may not use the Service to send unsolicited advertising, promotional material, or other solicitations to Users except in specific areas of the website designated for such purposes such as the Supplier Directory.
A Member is prohibited by this Agreement and by federal and state law from engaging in acts of copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret or other intellectual property or proprietary infringement.
17. Adult Material
InSync Training prohibits the transfer or posting on the Service of nudity, pornographic or adult material, sexually explicit images or descriptions involving sexual behavior, or other content deemed offensive by InSync Training according to community standards and state/provincial and federal law.
18. Event Code of Conduct
At InSync Training, we assume that most people are respectful and well-intended and we’re not inclined to tell people what to do. However, we want every InSync event to provide a harassment-free experience for everyone.
We want everyone to enjoy the event itself and the great networking and community richness that happens when we get together in person, so we will not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form—in person or online.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof); sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sponsors and Vendors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the event organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including expulsion from the event with no refund.
We thank you for your help in keeping the event welcoming, respectful, and friendly to all participants.
