Website Terms of Use

Last Revised January 13, 2024

AGREEMENT BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND WARDSENT DIGITAL.


Welcome to Wardsent Platform (the "Service") (the "Platform") (the “Website”).

This Service is provided solely to assist customers in business services, digital media, website development, graphics, branding, marketing, consultations, —related goods and services, making legitimate businesses or otherwise transacting business with clients, and for no other purposes. The terms "we", "us", "our", "Contractor", and “Wardsent” refer to Wardsent Digital and its subsidiaries and corporate affiliates, including TVOC Network, a Canadian corporation, (collectively, the "Companies"). “Partner” means any co-branded and/or linked website through which we provide links, content or service. The term "you" or "Client" refers to the customer using the Service, forming an agreement governing provision of services by Contractor for Client (the "Proposal"), or communicating with those affiliated with or regarding our Service. Contractor and Client may be referred to herein individually each as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”.

This Service is offered to you conditioned upon your acceptance without modification of all the terms, conditions, and notices set forth below (collectively, the "Terms of Use” or "Agreement").


Please read these Terms of Use carefully, as they contain important information about limitations of liability and resolution of disputes through arbitration rather than in court. You should also read our Privacy Policy, which also governs your use of the Website, and is incorporated by reference in this Agreement. By accessing or using this Website, scheduling any consultations for products or services, or contacting our agents, you agree that the Terms of Use then in force shall apply. If you do not agree to the Terms of Use, please do not use or book any services through this Website or our agents.

Advertising Cookies. Wardsent Digital and our third-party advertising partners may use advertising cookies to show you advertisements both on and off our sites that are based on your interests. We may allow third-parties to collect information about your online activities through cookies to perform their services and may combine the information that they collect about you on our sites with other information that they have collected.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms:

Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to sites with which the browser communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether users are even aware of them. Participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization that is addressing this issue are in the process of determining what, if anything, sites should do when they receive such signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess our sites’ responses to these signals and make appropriate updates to this Cookie Statement.
