AIME ("we," "us," or "our") requests that users ("you" or "your") respect our company policies in order to continue providing you with the highest level of service possible. This policy summarizes what is covered under our Terms of Service and provides you with a detailed explanation of what they mean for you.
These Terms apply to all Internet sites and mobile applications operated by or on behalf of AIME and includes AIME entities worldwide. It also applies to content AIME may otherwise distribute: (i) through our products and services; (ii) when you interact with us by means other than through AIME websites or applications (e.g. in person, by telephone, or at a trade show or training); and (iii) through our customers, distributors, suppliers, vendors, and other business partners (“Business Partners”).
However, different AIME websites, apps, products, and services have different purposes and features. If additional or different Terms of Service agreements are required for a specific AIME Internet Site, App, product, or service, then we provide those disclosures separately on, or with, the relevant Internet Site, App, product, or service. Each such specific copyright disclosure, policy, or statement (“Specific Terms of Service Statement”) supplements and amends this Policy.
These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement made between you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity, and AIME, concerning your access to and use of the www.aimeusa.com website as well as all Internet sites, mobile applications, products, and services operated by or on behalf of AIME and includes AIME entities worldwide (“AIME Sites”).
You agree that by accessing AIME Sites, you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by all of these Terms of Service. If you do not agree with all of these Terms of Service, then you are expressly prohibited from using AIME Sites and you must discontinue use immediately.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to make changes or modifications to these Terms of Service at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms of Service, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change.
It is your responsibility to periodically review these Terms of Service to stay informed of updates. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of ant to have accepted, the changes in any revised Terms of Service by your continued use of AIME Sites after the date such revised Terms of Service are posted.
The information provided on AIME Sites is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject us to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.
Accordingly, those persons who choose to access AIME Sites from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
AIME Sites are intended for users who are at least 13 years of age. All users who are minors in the jurisdiction in which they reside (generally under the age of 18) must have the permission of, and be directly supervised by, their parent or guardian to use AIME Sites. If you are a minor, you must have your parent or guardian read and agree to these Terms of Service prior to you using AIME Sites.
