By accessing and browsing the Site, you accept, without limitation or qualification, the following Terms and Conditions and acknowledge that any other agreements between you and GRUV GEAR are superseded and of no force or effect.


You may not download or distribute any of the materials displayed on the Site, except with the written permission of GRUV GEAR or when expressly permitted in the text of the Site, in which case you may download and distribute those materials displayed on the Site to which [the] such permission applies, but solely for non-commercial purposes such as informational, educational, and personal use, and provided that you do not alter, modify or receive consideration for the materials in any manner and that you also retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained on the materials. You also agree not use any such material to denigrate, disparage, or otherwise make negative reference to GRUV GEAR or its clients. When such material is the property of GRUV GEAR, the following notice should be used in every copy or reproduction: © 2007-2010 GRUV GEAR. Used With Permission. All rights reserved. You may not copy, post, upload to any network, intranet or internet, rebroadcast or retransmit, or otherwise disseminate such material in any medium without GRUV GEAR's express written permission. The permission in this paragraph may be withdrawn at any time upon direct or indirect (such as by posting) notice to you, at the sole discretion of GRUV GEAR, and you agree to immediately cease all use of such material.

You should assume that everything you see or read on the Site is protected by the Copyright laws of the United States of America, 17 U.S.C. SS 101 et seq., and/or the copyright laws of other countries as well, and may not be used in any manner without the written permission of GRUV GEAR except as expressly provided in these Terms and Conditions or in the text on the Site. GRUV GEAR neither warrants nor represents that your use of the materials displayed on the Site will not infringe rights of third parties not owned by or affiliated with GRUV GEAR.

While GRUV GEAR uses reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information on the site, GRUV GEAR makes no warranties or representations as to its accuracy. GRUV GEAR assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions in the content on the Site.

Your use and browsing of the Site is at your own risk. Neither GRUV GEAR nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the Site is liable for any direct, incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages arising out of your access to, or use of, the Site. Without limiting the foregoing, everything on this Site is provided to you "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you. Check your local laws for any restrictions or limitations regarding the exclusion of implied warranties. GRUV GEAR also assumes no responsibility, and shall not be liable, for any damages to, or viruses that may infect your computer equipment or other property on account of your access to, use of, or browsing in the Site or your downloading of any materials, data, text, images, video, or audio from the Site.

GRUV GEAR will endeavor to respond promptly and appropriately with respect to communications we receive. Please note, however, that it is the policy of GRUV GEAR not to accept unsolicited ideas, concepts, materials, information, proposals, and the like, so please do not send any. Any communication or material you transmit to the Site or GRUV GEAR by electronic mail or otherwise, including any data, questions, comments, suggestions, or the like is, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non-proprietary, unless a specific non-disclosure agreement is signed prior to communication of confidential material. Anything you transmit or post to the site may be used by GRUV GEAR or its affiliates for any purpose, including, but not limited to reproduction, disclosure, transmission, publication, broadcast, and posting. Furthermore, GRUV GEAR is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in any communication you send to the Site or GRUV GEAR for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, and marketing products using such information. These guidelines are subject to our Privacy Policy.

Images of people or places displayed on the Site are either the property of, or used with permission by, GRUV GEAR. The use of these images by you, or anyone else authorized by you, is prohibited unless specifically permitted by these Terms and Conditions or specific permission provided elsewhere on the Site. Any unauthorized use of the images may violate copyright laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and communications regulations and statutes.

The trademarks, logos, and service marks (collectively the "Trademarks") displayed on this Site, including but not limited to "GRUV GEAR" are registered and unregistered Trademarks of GRUV GEAR or third parties. Nothing contained on the Site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any Trademarks displayed on the Site without the written permission of GRUV GEAR or such third party that may own the Trademarks displayed on the Site. Your use of the Trademarks displayed on the Site, or any other content on the Site, except as provided in these Terms and Conditions, is strictly prohibited.

GRUV GEAR has not necessarily reviewed all of the sites linked to the Site and is not responsible for the contents of any off-site pages or any other sites linked to the Site. Your linking to any other off-site pages or other sites is at your own risk. GRUV GEAR's inclusion of such a link between the Site and any other web site should not be construed as an endorsement of the linked web site or its owner.

Although GRUV GEAR may from time to time create new features, or monitor or review discussions, chats, postings, transmissions, bulletin boards, and the like on the Site, GRUV GEAR is under no obligation to do so and assumes no responsibility or liability arising from the content of any such locations not for any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained in any information contained within such locations on the Site. You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane material or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law. GRUV GEAR will fully cooperate with any law enforcement authorities or court order requesting or directing GRUV GEAR to disclose the identity of anyone posting any such information or materials.

GRUV GEAR may at any time revise these Terms and Conditions by updating this posting. You are bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to review the then current Terms and Conditions to which you are bound.
