VisionWeb Is Strictly A Portal
The Services and the Web pages therein, act as an electronic portal for customers, service providers, distributors, manufacturers, and suppliers. Through our best efforts, information posted on the Web pages of the Service is intended to be accurate but may contain typographical errors. VisionWeb makes no representations about the accuracy, reliability, completeness, or timeliness of information and services contained on, distributed through, or linked, downloaded or accessed from the Web pages of the Services and makes no representations whatsoever about the information posted on the Web pages of the Services or products or services obtained as a result of an advertisement or any other information or offer in or in connection with the Services. VisionWeb is not involved in the actual transaction between customers and service providers, distributors, manufacturers, and suppliers. As a result, VisionWeb has no control over the quality, safety, or legality of the products or services advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of suppliers to sell or provide the products or services, the ability of insurance providers to reimburse claims, or the ability of customers to buy products or services. VisionWeb cannot and does not control whether or not service providers, distributors, manufacturers, or suppliers will complete the sale of products or services they offer or customers will complete the purchase of products or services. In addition, note that there are risks of dealing across national borders, with underage people, or with people acting under false pretense. Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, VisionWeb cannot and does not confirm that users are who they claim to be. Because VisionWeb does not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings, in the event that User has a dispute with one or more other users, User releases VisionWeb (and VisionWeb’s agents and employees) from claims, demands, and damages (actual direct and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
For legal reasons, VisionWeb cannot, nor does VisionWeb try to, control the information provided by other users that is made available through the Services. By its very nature, other users’ information may be inaccurate, and in some cases may be misleading. VisionWeb expects that User will use caution — and common sense — when using the Services.
In the event that of a dispute with a customers, service providers, distributors, manufacturers, or suppliers, or are in any way damaged as a result of dealings with a customer, service provider, distributor, manufacturer, or supplier, User releases VisionWeb (and its affiliates, agents, officers, directors and employees) from, and covenant not to sue VisionWeb (and its affiliates, agents, officer, directors and employees) for, claims, demands and damages (whether direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential) of every kind and nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes or dealings.
User’s information includes any information User provides to VisionWeb or other users in the registration, listing, buying and selling processes, real-time and claims submission processes, in any public message area, or in any e-mail feature (defined herein as “User’s Information”). With respect to User’s Information:
(1) User is solely responsible for User’s Information, and VisionWeb acts as a passive conduit for User’s online distribution and publication of User’s Information. However, VisionWeb may take any action with respect to such information VisionWeb deems necessary or appropriate in VisionWeb’s sole discretion if VisionWeb believes it may create liability for, or loss to, VisionWeb or other users, or may cause VisionWeb to lose (in whole or in part) the services of VisionWeb’s ISPs or other service providers, distributors, manufacturers, or suppliers.
(2) User’s Information and User’s products or services for sale or resale on the Services: (a) shall not be false, inaccurate, or misleading; (b) shall not be fraudulent or involve the sale of counterfeit or stolen items; (c) shall not infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy; (d) shall not violate any law, statute, ordinance, or regulation of any jurisdiction (including without limitation those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, or false advertising); (e) shall not be defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening, or unlawfully harassing; (f) shall not contain pornography or otherwise be harmful to minors; (g) shall not contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept, or expropriate any system, data, or personal information; and (h) shall not link directly or indirectly to or include descriptions of products or services:(1) that are prohibited under these Terms and Conditions of Use or the fruits of such prohibited products or services, or (2) to which User does not have a right to link or include. Furthermore, User may not post on the Web pages of the Services or sell through the Services any product or service that could cause VisionWeb to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance, or regulation of any jurisdiction.
(3) Solely to enable VisionWeb to use User’s Information that User supplies to VisionWeb, so that VisionWeb is not violating any rights User might have in that information, User agrees to grant VisionWeb a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise the copyright and publicity rights User has in User’s Information, in any media now known or not currently known, with respect to User’s Information. VisionWeb will use User’s Information in accordance with the Services’ then-current privacy principles posted on, and or linked to, the Services, which principles are incorporated herein by reference. VisionWeb may refer to User as a user in sales presentations, marketing vehicles, and marketing activities.
(4) If User chooses to establish a credit account with VisionWeb, VisionWeb shall collect some additional information from User, including billing address, credit card number and expiration date, tracking information from checks or money orders.

VisionWeb expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change the pricing of all products and services, including products and services re-sold by VisionWeb, from time to time. User grants VisionWeb permission to charge User’s credit card for all services agreed upon by the User. For payments not made by credit card, VisionWeb will issue an invoice on or before the fifth business day of each month, under net 30-day payment terms.
Users continued use of the products and/or services reaffirms that VisionWeb is authorized to charge User accordingly. VisionWeb may submit those charges for payment and User will be responsible for such charges. Those submissions will not waive VisionWeb’s right to seek payment directly from User. User charges for VisionWeb’s online insurance claim processing service are monthly in advance, and the charges for any other product and/or service may be payable in advance, in arrears, per usage, or as otherwise described when products and/ or are initially ordered.
Certain services associated with VisionWeb may require the payment of additional fees (including, without limitation, set-up, and/or initial activation and reactivation) and User agrees to pay such fees at the prices then in effect as specified for such service to either VisionWeb or its designated service provider. User agrees that VisionWeb may pass User account information (including, without limitation, credit card number) to its designated service provider of such additional services for their use in charging User for appropriate services rendered.
Subject to any withdrawal right the User may have under applicable law, charges are non-refundable unless the price plan terms expressly say otherwise. Except as otherwise required by law, the costs of any returns if permitted will be at User’s expense.

Service providers, distributors, manufacturers, and suppliers may not manipulate the price of their product or service, either by using a shill (either a secondary account or third party), by bidding themselves, or by any other means.
