If this is not the case we will give account credits moving forward until the account meets the ROI criteria outlined above. In order to qualify for credits based on the ROI Guarantee which is:
    A. The user must complete the certification or training process as outlined by the account trainer in order to show that the software is setup to the user’s satisfaction.
    B. The software must be used for generating all quotes for the company whether over the phone, in person, or from the website.

Banking, Billing or Other Online Services. Access to Online Banking, Online Payment, and any other services available through the Internet and selected Symphosize products (the “Online Service”) is provided by your financial institution and not Symphosize. You agree not to hold Symphosize liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as a result of any such dealings with any services provided by your financial institution. Your access may be limited from time to time, depending on the service provided by your Internet service provider or your financial institution.

You agree to be responsible for all telephone charges associated with your Internet and online service usage.

Termination and Amendment. Your privilege to use or access the Site may be terminated by Symphosize immediately and without notice if you fail to comply with any term or condition of the Terms.

Miscellaneous. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, these Terms of Service are a complete statement of the agreement between you and Symphosize, and set forth the entire liability of Symphosize and its Suppliers and your exclusive remedy with respect to your access and use of the Site. In the event of a conflict between these Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy, these Terms of Service shall prevail. The Suppliers, agents, distributors, dealers, and employees of Symphosize are not authorized to make modifications to the Terms, or to make any additional representations, commitments or warranties binding on Symphosize. Any waiver of the terms herein by Symphosize must be in a writing signed by an authorized officer of Symphosize and expressly referencing the applicable provisions of the Terms. If any provision of the Terms is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it shall be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect. The Terms will be governed by Arizona law as applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Arizona, without regard to its choice of law or conflicts of law principles that would require application of law of a different jurisdiction, and applicable federal law. The parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state courts in Maricopa County, Arizona or federal court for the Arizona. Headings are included for convenience only, and shall not be considered in interpreting these Terms.
