Unless otherwise explicitly specified on the ave Site, the information on the ave Site is intended solely for use and access by persons residing in the United States. Access to the ave Site may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries outside of the United States. If you access the ave Site from outside the United States, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for compliance with the laws and regulations of your territory of access. Any statements about ave products or services on the ave Site are intended to refer only to those ave products and services offered in the United States.

Although the ave Site may contain links to third-party websites located inside or outside the United States (each, a “Linked Website”), information on any Linked Website may be appropriate only to a particular territory or particular users.

The ave Site is not intended for use by children under the age of thirteen. We will not knowingly collect information about children under the age of thirteen and will otherwise comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of the United States and other applicable laws and regulations of the United States. We ask that any user of the ave Site monitor the use of the ave Site by children under their care and make sure that those children are aware of the dangers of providing information about themselves over the Internet. We also would like to make you aware of the availability of commercial parental control software that will better enable you to monitor and, where necessary, block access by children to the Internet.

  1. Intellectual-Property Ownership and Use.

All intellectual property associated with the ave Site, including its content and the trademarks, service marks, trade dress and proprietary designs appearing on the ave Site or referenced in it, are the sole property of ave, its venders, licensors, licensees or other third parties. Any rights associated with any such intellectual property are retained by the owner and are protected by applicable law. These terms of use expressly prohibit any use of any intellectual property associated with the ave Site except as otherwise expressly specified in the ave Site or as otherwise expressly authorized by ave in writing.

  1. Restrictions on Use.

The ave Site is protected by United States and international law, including copyright and trademark laws. These terms of use do not grant any license to modify, alter or frame the materials on the ave Site that are viewed, downloaded or otherwise accessed by you. ave reserves the right to disable any unauthorized links or frames. If you desire to provide a link from your website to the ave Site, or to frame them, you must contact ave for permission via the contact method provided on the ave Site. ave will be under no obligation, however, to permit any link or frame.

Your license under these terms of use does not include: any right of resale or of commercial use of the ave Site or its contents; any derivative use of the ave Site or its contents; or any use of data mining, robots, or similar data-gathering and extraction tools in connection with the ave Site. You may not remove or alter any proprietary notices, including copyright notices, contained on any downloadable materials and you must comply with all applicable end-user license agreements, website policies and terms of use. You may not input or upload onto the ave Site any information or computer code that is intended to, or are likely to, damage, interfere with, alter, intercept or expropriate any data or system, or that infringes any intellectual-property rights of ave or any third party. Inappropriate inputs and uploads include Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots and other unauthorized computer programming routines. You are also prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, obscene, libelous, or otherwise offensive material, or engaging in any kind of harassment activity via the ave Site or any Linked Website.

  1. Product and Service Information.

ave may provide new features or information on the ave Site, each of which will be subject to these terms of use. We encourage you to visit the ave Site from time to time to review the new information provided on them to review the current versions of their respective terms of use.

ave shall have no responsibility for errors of any kind on the ave Site, any other site provided by ave, or any Linked Website. Errors may include incorrect product and service descriptions, typographical errors and obsolete information, with the result that product and service descriptions, pricing information and the descriptions of promotional offers or other data may not be complete, current or accurate. Errors may result in the failure to honor an order or request placed by you based on incorrect information. Because actual colors and the “look and feel” you see on the ave Site will depend on your monitor and other technical factors, ave cannot guarantee that any video display of any product information or other data will be accurate at any time.

Products and services described on the ave Site are available only while supplies last, and ave reserves the right to discontinue the production of any product, and to discontinue the offering or sale of any product or service at any time, without notice. The display of, or any reference to, any product or service on the ave Site or any Linked Website does not signify that the product or service is or will be available in the United States. ave also cannot guarantee that any particular product or service displayed on the ave Site will be available through any particular retailer, even if that retailer has indicated that the product or service is available through it or if the retailer is mentioned on the ave Site.

In part to optimize characteristics for specific markets, products and their specifications may vary by territory; accordingly, products displayed or referenced on the ave Site for sale in the United States of America may differ from those products for sale in other territories in the world and user results may therefore differ.

Any prices stated by ave on the ave Site are suggested prices only; all retailer prices accessed by you through the ave Site or otherwise provided to you are subject to change without notice and might not include shipping and handling or any applicable sales taxes or customs duties. Return and refund policies vary by retailer and are not the responsibility of ave. ave will not be a party to any sales transaction or other transaction you may make with any retailer, either online, by telephone or otherwise. ave therefore can make no guarantee that any retailer will fulfill any product order or honor any other commitment, promise or obligation to you.

  1. Submissions

Any questions, comments, suggestions, testimonials, endorsements, ideas or similar material disclosed, submitted or posted by you on the ave Site or in connection with them will be considered non-confidential, non-proprietary and not personal either to you or to anyone else. By so disclosing, posting or submitting any such material, you grant to ave and its affiliates a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, edit, publish, translate, rework, distribute and display that material without compensation or acknowledgment of source. You may be asked to agree to additional terms upon submission of certain content or materials (e.g., testimonials) to the ave Site, and these terms of use shall in no way limit those additional terms.

If you make a submission, you represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control the rights to your submission. You further represent and warrant that your submission will not contain software viruses, spiders, spybots, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any other form of spam. You may not use a false name or identity-obscuring or misleading e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead us as to the origin of any submission. You agree to indemnify us for all claims arising from or in connection with any claims to any rights in any submission.

  1. Your Information and Privacy Considerations.

From time to time, we may offer users of the ave Site the opportunity to receive information, special offerings and promotions, and to participate in contests and sweepstakes. We may also solicit requests from users for contact information for others who might be interested in ave products and services.

In order to take advantage of the full capabilities of the ave Site, such as the participation in certain special offerings, clubs, promotions, contests, sweepstakes, and to receive e-mailed information and announcements, you may be asked to send us information about yourself. Providing that information is entirely voluntary on your part and the use and enjoyment of many aspects of the ave Site will still be possible if you elect not to provide that information.

We may use your information to process your requests regarding ave products, services, clubs and programs, to respond to your inquiries and for other purposes specified from time to time on the ave Site. We may also use your information to provide to you information regarding other ave products, services, and promotional activities that may be of interest to you. In addition, if you register for any service, or if you enter any sweepstakes or contest sponsored by ave or featured on the ave Site, we may, in addition to other uses specified in that registration or entry form, use your information to communicate with you regarding your registration or entry. Entry and conduct of all sweepstakes and contests shall be governed by their respective official rules.

We respect your privacy and the privacy of others, and we will, of course, endeavor to take care of any information you supply to us. If you believe, however, that any such information is so private to you or to any other person that possible disclosure would be embarrassing or otherwise inappropriate, we ask that you do not supply that information. We do require, however, that the information you elect to provide to us be true, accurate, current and complete, and we request that you update that information as necessary.

Linked Websites are likely governed by their own confidentiality and privacy provisions. ave is not responsible for those provisions and expressly disclaims any liability relating to any aspect of them, including their enforcement or lack of enforcement.

The submission by you of any information about yourself while using the ave Site constitutes consent by you to the collection, use and disclosure of that information by ave in accordance with these terms of use. The ave Site may use passive information devices, including, without limitation, the collection of Internet IP addresses and navigational data and the use of cookies. Although ave takes reasonable steps to protect information that you may submit to it through the ave Site, ave cannot guarantee the security of that information. You should also bear in mind that Internet transmissions are never completely secure, nor can they be guaranteed error-free. You therefore understand that, by use of the ave Site, you are assuming the security risk for any information that you transmit through it.

Although ave has no obligation to monitor any information provided to the ave Site by users, including information that you provide, ave reserves the right to monitor, retain and disclose that information if required to do so by law or in a good-faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal requirements, to respond to claims that any information violates the rights of third parties, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of ave, its users or the public.
