We will provide you access to use the MergeIn Directory according to the terms of this Agreement. Certain parts of the MergeIn Directory may only be accessible to you if you are a MergeIn partner or customer.
You may be required to select a username and you may not use a username that: (i) belongs to someone else, (ii) impersonates another person, (iii) is misleading, (iv) violates any intellectual property or other proprietary rights, (v) is vulgar or offensive, (vi) that uses ‘MergeIn’ as all or part of it, unless we provide express permission to do so, or (vii) that we reject, which we may choose to do in our discretion. All information you provide in your profile must be accurate. If you believe your access to or use of the MergeIn Directory has been breached, compromised, or unauthorized, notify us immediately at security@MergeIn.com.
We can remove or discontinue all or a portion of the MergeIn Directory (including, without limitation, Service Providers or Service Offerings) at any time, without notice, in our discretion. We can choose which Service Providers or Service Offerings to promote, and we can also choose how we want to promote them, if at all. Provision of the MergeIn Directory does not mean we endorse, support or warrant the Service Provider or Service Offerings, even if the Service Provider or Service Offerings is listed or designated as ‘MergeIn Certified’.
We may immediately suspend use of the MergeIn Directory and/or remove a Service Offering, at any time without notice, for actual or suspected violations of the terms contained in this Section 3 (Your Conduct and Content). This right is in addition to those other rights of suspension and removal that we otherwise have under this Agreement.
You grant to us all rights, licenses and permissions necessary to display, reproduce, disseminate, and otherwise use Your Content in connection with the MergeIn Directory. We may edit or remove Your Content at any time in our sole discretion.
If you are a Client, you understand and agree that we are not responsible for engagement with a Service Provider or use of Service Offerings. If you elect to engage with a Service Provider or procure a Service Offering, the terms and conditions regarding your use or receipt of the Service Offerings are between you and the Service Provider of those Service Offerings. Any questions, concerns or disputes that arise based on your use of a Service Offering should be addressed with the Service Provider, not with us. The Service Offerings may use or transport your data or information outside of the MergeIn Directory or MergeIn product, and we are not responsible for any such use or transport. If you use the MergeIn Directory, its content (including without limitation, reviews), a Service Provider listed, or any Service Offerings, you do so at your sole risk.
If you are a Service Provider, you must respond to inquiries regarding your Service Offerings within a reasonable period of time. If you are listed as a Service Provider, we also expect that Service Offerings you provide are done so with good quality and in a professional and workmanlike manner. We may remove you as a Service Provider or remove a Service Offering in our discretion, at any time, without notice to you. One of the reasons we might remove you as a Service Provider is if we determine that you are not responsive or are not delivering quality work as we expect. Submitting your information as a Service Provider does not guarantee you will be listed on the MergeIn Directory or promoted by us.
The MergeIn Directory may permit you to post reviews about a Service Provider or Service Offering. If you submit a review, you agree that we may post all or a portion of the content of your review, along with your name and the date of the review. We reserve the right to edit, remove or decline to post any review, at any time, in our discretion. We are not responsible for the content of the reviews, whether or not we reviewed or edited the content.
In an effort to maintain fair, accurate and useful reviews, you are required to follow the Review Guidelines, along with the following, with respect to all reviews submitted:

We will: notify you in writing within thirty (30) days of our becoming aware of any such claim; give you sole control of the defense or settlement of such a claim; and provide you (at your expense) with any and all information and assistance reasonably requested by you to handle the defense or settlement of the claim.
