Terms & Conditions


1. This is an Agreement Between You and TidyView

TidyView provides users with a variety of internet-based services (the "Service" or "Services"), including, without limitation, Internet navigation assistance web pages ("Results Pages") containing search results, localized Events pages, and other content offered through www.TidyView (the "Web Site"), as well as any Web page that contains a Web-based search box provided by TidyView (a "Home Page" and, together with the Web Site and any Results Pages, the "TidyView Web Pages"). This Terms of Service page states the terms and conditions under which you may use the Services and the TidyView Web Pages (the "Terms of Service" or "Agreement"). Please read this page carefully. This is an agreement between you and TidyView. In accessing the Services and/or the TidyView Web Pages, you accept all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Our Terms of Service may change from time to time, and those changes will be available for your review on most TidyView Web Pages that you view, and on our web page. Your continued use of our Services or TidyView Web Pages after any such changes have been made will signify your assent to the changed Terms of Service. If you do not accept these Terms of Service, do not use the Services or TidyView Web Pages.

Additional terms may apply to the use of some Services, and are disclosed in the form of the posted guidelines or rules applicable to such Services (the "Service-Specific Rules"), which may be modified from time to time. All such Service-Specific Rules are hereby incorporated by reference into, and form part of, this Agreement. If any provisions of this Agreement conflict with any Service-Specific Rules, the terms of the applicable Service-Specific Rules shall control. TidyView offers the service to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of this agreement. Your use of the service constitutes your acceptance of this agreement. This agreement contains disclaimers of warranties and liability (see sections 18, 19, and 20); and an exclusive remedy (see section 19). These provisions form an essential basis of our bargain.


2. How TidyView May Modify This Agreement and the Services

TidyView reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which it offers any of its Services at any time, for any reason, and without notice, and such modifications shall be deemed effective immediately upon posting of the modified terms. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms of Service, and any Service-Specific Rules, because your continued use of the Services or TidyView Web Pages following the posting of changes to this Agreement or the Service-Specific Rules will mean you accept those changes.

In agreeing to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service, you agree that TidyView may at any time, in its sole and absolute discretion, without prior notice to you, modify, cancel, update, reconfigure, supplement, limit, terminate, or otherwise alter the Services or any part thereof, including as between different users of the same Services, whether temporarily or permanently.

When acquiring Third Party List Information, TidyView seeks assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to transfer the Third Party List Information to TidyView and that the Seller has a right to provide offers from advertisers to the individuals whose personal information is included on the Seller's list.

1.3 Other Information.

Other occasions when TidyView obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by TidyView or by a Third Party, (2) when an individual requests assistance through TidyView's customer service department, and (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a TidyView service or newsletter (together, "Other Information").

1.4 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology.

TidyView currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, TidyView may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, "Technology Information").

(a) Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual's computer that allows TidyView to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in TidyView's database. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Website need to accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Website.

(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using an programming function, see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual's unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows TidyView to track certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, TidyView might place, with the consent of a Third Party website, a web beacon on the Third Party's website where baseball products are sold. When Joe, an individual listed in TidyView's database, visits the fishing website, TidyView receives notice by means of the web beacon that Joe visited the baseball site, and TidyView would then update Joe's profile with the information that Joe is interested in baseball. TidyView may thereafter present offers of baseball related products and services to Joe. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, TidyView also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in TidyView's database.

(c) New Technology. The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is TidyView's use of new and evolving technology. As a result, TidyView strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of technology.

TidyView will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. If TidyView obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our database. Because it does not collect such information, TidyView has no such information to use or to disclose to Third Parties. TidyView has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
