Nothing in this section shall affect Manson’s rights to change, limit or stop the provision of the Site without prior notice.


PURCHASE DECISIONS. The Content on the Site should never be relied upon as the sole basis for making any decisions to purchase products or services from Manson. We and our third-party providers, affiliates, agents, and licensors will not be liable for any purchase decisions made based on the Content and/or the Site. Any reliance on the Content on the Site is at your own risk, and you assume any and all risks associated with your purchase decisions.

Manson and our Content licensors do not guarantee the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of, or otherwise endorse, these offerings, give tax or product advice, or advocate the purchase or sale of any product or service. Due to the number of sources from which Manson content is obtained, and the inherent hazards of electronic distribution, there may be delays, omissions, or inaccuracies in such content.


LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. Under no circumstances shall Manson, its officers, directors, agents, third-party providers, affiliates, or licensors be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages (including without limitation, attorneys' fees), or any loss of profits or revenues or loss of data, use, good-will, business opportunity, or other intangible losses, whether in an action of contract, negligence or other tortious action, that result from the use of, or the inability to use, any information available on the Site, even if Manson has been advised of such damages. If you are dissatisfied with any Manson Content or other materials, or with any of the terms and conditions contained in the Site, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the Site. If Manson or any of its third-party providers, affiliates, agents, or licensors are found liable in connection with a claim arising out of or related to the Site or the Content, their aggregate liability in such an event shall not exceed the greater of one hundred U.S. dollars (U.S. $100) or the amount you paid Manson, if any, in the past six months for the products or services giving rise to the claim. Your right to monetary damages in such amount shall be in lieu of all other remedies to which you may otherwise be entitled from Manson, or its third-party providers, affiliates, agents, or licensors.

The limitations of this subsection shall apply to any theory of liability, whether based on warranty, contract, statute, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, and whether or not Manson has been informed of the possibility of any such damage, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose. However, because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you.


INDEMNIFICATION. You hereby indemnify, defend and hold harmless Manson and all officers, directors, owners, agents, third-party providers, affiliates, licensors and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all liability and costs, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim arising out of any breach by you of these Terms or the foregoing representations, warranties and covenants. You shall cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defense of any such claim. Manson reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you.

VENDOR PORTAL. Manson offers as a service to its existing or prospective vendors (the “Vendor” or “Vendors”) an online portal that allows a Vendor to submit to Manson the Vendor’s contact details, business information, and qualifications to do business with Manson (“Vendor Portal”). References to “you” in this section are references to the individual who is authorized to use the Vendor Portal by and on behalf of a Vendor. By using the Vendor Portal, you represent that you are authorized to do so by and on behalf of a Vendor that is a duly organized, validly existing business, organization, or other legal entity in good standing in the jurisdiction(s) in which it operates and you and the Vendor agree to be bound by these Terms.

Vendor Portal Access and Account Security. You are responsible for both: (1) Making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the Vendor Portal; and (2) Ensuring that all persons who access the Vendor Portal on behalf of the Vendor you represent are aware of these Terms and comply with them.

If you choose, or are provided with, a username, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to this Vendor Portal or portions of it using your username, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your username or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other sensitive information.

We have the right to disable your account or any username, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms. Both you and the Vendor are responsible for notifying Manson and requesting deactivation of your account upon your leaving the Vendor organization to which the account was provisioned.

Manson will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the provisions of this section.


Use of the Vendor Portal. You agree to use the Vendor Portal only to post, send, and receive information that is related to your existing or prospective business relationship with Manson. It is a condition of your use of the Vendor Portal that all the information you provide on the Vendor Portal is correct, current, and complete and that you are authorized to provide the information. You agree you are responsible for any information you upload to the Vendor Portal, including any errors or omissions contained therein, and Manson will have no obligation to confirm the accuracy of information you submit to the Vendor Portal.

You are prohibited from engaging in any use of the Vendor Portal that is (i) unlawful, (ii) may result in damage to the Vendor Portal, (iii) may cause interruptions in availability of the Vendor Portal and (iv) interferes with normal business operations. You further agree that you will not do any of the following:

  1. Attempt to bypass login or security controls.

  2. Access the Vendor Portal except through the visual user interfaces authorized by Manson or through any of our authorized accessibility alternatives.

  3. Use the Vendor Portal for any commercial uses other than management of your Vendor account with us and conducting actual or prospective business relations with us, unless you obtain Manson’s prior written approval.

  4. Use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, “robots,” “spiders,” “crawlers,” or “offline readers” (other than screen readers and similar devices designed to assist visually impaired persons), that accesses the Vendor Portal.

  5. Upload files that contain software or other material protected by intellectual property laws unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents.

  6. Misrepresent your identity, provide false information, impersonate another person or entity, or misrepresent your relationship with a person or entity or attempt to use another’s Vendor Portal account.


Manson reserves the right to prohibit access and terminate the account of anyone or any Vendor that Manson determines, in its sole discretion, to be violating or attempting to violate these Terms.


Manson Use of Information Submitted on the Vendor Portal. You agreethat Manson may rely on information you submit through the Vendor Portal in making determinations related to business relationships, vendor selection, and contracting and that such determinations are at Manson’s sole discretion. You are entirely responsible for the accuracy and completeness of information you submit through the Vendor Portal and we may periodically require that you re-certify that such information is accurate, complete, and up to date. Manson has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any activity and information you submit and may use such information internally for any lawful purpose.

Business Information Submitted. You agree that all information you provide to us through the Vendor Portal about you or the Vendor constitutes the Vendor’s business information rather than personal information (except in the case of personal guarantees) and is submitted for business or contractual purposes. To the extent any information is shared through the Vendor Portal that would be regarded as personal information under relevant privacy laws, such information will be treated in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Ownership of Vendor Portal Content. Any raw data or expression in tangible media (such as a product image or logo) that you directly submit to us through the Vendor Portal is referred to herein as “Vendor Supplied Content.” All other data content, information and expressions in tangible media and copyrights generated by or appearing in the Vendor Portal is exclusively owned by Manson and referred to herein as "Proprietary Content." For clarity, Proprietary Content includes all individual and compiled tangible expressions and functionality of the Vendor Portal itself, including the manner in which information is assembled and/or displayed in the Vendor Portal and all reports, analytics, and other content generated by or accessible through the Vendor Portal, as well as all content uploaded to the Vendor Portal by Manson or created by Manson, with the exception of Vendor Supplied Content. You acknowledge and agree that any and all Proprietary Content belongs solely to Manson and you have no, and shall not acquire, any ownership right or proprietary interest in the Proprietary Content. You further acknowledge and agree that the Proprietary Content, including all Manson data, reports, and creative copy or images, is strictly confidential and may be used by you solely to fulfill your obligations to Manson. You may not disclose or share Proprietary Content with others without our prior written consent. You further acknowledge and agree that neither you nor anyone in your company will extract screenshots, print or otherwise reproduce or share Proprietary Content with any third party without first obtaining Manson’s written consent to the disclosure.


MODIFICATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Manson reserves the right to change this Terms of Use agreement at any time by revising the terms and conditions herein, including, but not limited to, adding fees and charges for use. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms and conditions. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including, but not limited to, posting on the Site, or by electronic or conventional mail. You can access the latest version of this agreement at the bottom of any page on the Site. Continued use of the Site following any such changes shall constitute your acceptance of such changes. If you do not accept these terms and any subsequent changes, you must cease using the Site.


GENERAL. This agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Washington, U.S.A. You consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in King County, Washington, U.S.A. in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of this Manson Site. Use of this Site is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including without limitation this paragraph. However, if you are a federal, state, or local government entity in the United States using the Site in your official capacity and legally unable to accept the controlling law, jurisdiction or venue clauses above, then those clauses do not apply to you. For such U.S. federal government entities, these Terms and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the United States of America (without reference to conflict of laws) and, in the absence of federal law and to the extent permitted under federal law, the laws of the State of Washington (excluding choice of law).


WAIVER. Manson’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not be deemed a waiver of such right or provision.


SEVERABILITY. If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Terms shall continue in effect.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION – AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE. You agree that any dispute, claim or controversy between you and Manson arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or Privacy Policy or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the Site will be settled by binding arbitration between you and the Manson, except that each party retains the right: (1) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (2) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (an “IP Protection Action”). The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action will be the state and federal courts for the city of Seattle and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these conditions of use as a court would.  You acknowledge and agree that you are waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Manson otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void.  Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms of Use.

The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this Dispute Resolution section. (The AAA Rules are available at or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.  Unless you and Manson otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in Seattle by one arbitrator. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The prevailing party in the arbitration will be entitled to an award of reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Manson with respect to the Site. It supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and Manson with respect to the Site. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Please contact us via our Connect With Us form if you have any questions about this agreement.
