4. DELIVERY OF INFORMATION.

When using and/or to facilitate the operation of certain features of the NTI Website, you may provide Network Training Institute with additional content or information (a "Posting"). In connection with delivering and providing to Network Training Institute any such Posting, you hereby and automatically grant to Network Training Institute a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable right and license (through multiple tiers) to copy, distribute, create derivative works from, display, modify, reformat, transmit, and otherwise use any such content or information as necessary in connection with the NTI Website and Network Training Institute’s service obligations in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed for the full term of any rights that may exist in such content or information.

5. OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Additional notices, terms, and conditions may apply to membership, receipt of services, participation in a particular program, conference, training, or seminar, Authorized User registration with the NTI Website, and/or to other specific portions or features of the NTI Website, all of which are made a part of this TOS by this reference. In particular, this TOS, in and of itself, shall not entitle you to any of the Network Training Institute membership benefits until you execute and Network Training Institute accepts Network Training Institute’s member services agreement with Network Training Institute.

6. USER NAME HANDLING POLICY.

Registration as an Authorized User for access to certain areas of the NTI Website may require both a user name and a password. Only one Authorized User can use one user name and password and, thus, one account. By limiting access, it helps avoid unauthorized usage by other persons or entities because anyone with knowledge of both your user name and password can gain entry to the NTI Website and to your account. Accordingly, by using the NTI Website, you agree to consider your user name and password as confidential information and to keep your user name and password confidential. You also agree not to use another Authorized User's user name and password. You will immediately notify Network Training Institute if you become aware of any loss or theft of your password or any unauthorized use of your user name and password. Network Training Institute cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these obligations. Network Training Institute reserves the right to delete or change (with notice) a user name or password at any time and for any reason.

7. PRIVACY POLICY.

If any provision (or part thereof) contained in this TOS is determined to be void, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction or on account of a conflict with an applicable government regulation, such determination shall not affect the remaining provisions (or parts thereof) contained herein and the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable clause shall be modified in compliance with applicable law in a manner that most closely matches the intent of the original language.
