Each User acknowledges by becoming a member that the User may not sub-license, transfer, sell, or assign this license or the Site.

4. Intellectual Property Rights - No Duplication or Redistribution
Members and Users acknowledge that the duplication and/or redistribution of content, information, data, or other intellectual property gained through access to the Site to any other party is a violation of applicable copyright laws and causes harm to Monarch Link and the Site. Each User agrees that duplication and/or redistribution of any materials to any non-member shall in each instance require prior written authorization from an authorized representative of Monarch Link. Each User further agrees that any specific instance in which written authorization is granted by Monarch Link, does not authorize the User to duplicate and/or redistribute any other material than that for which written authorization was granted.
Monarch Link Members have permission to fully use any editable Monarch Link course resources solo for their agency use.

6. Personal Information Security
Monarch Link implements a variety of standard web security measures to maintain the safety and security of Members' personal information. A non-Member User may use the site anonymously as a visitor, but any personal information provided to become a registered User will be protected by secured networks and is only accessible by a few Monarch Link agency representatives who have special access rights to such systems. It is recommended that, if a User shares a computer or uses a computer that is accessed by the general public (i.e., coffee shop, university or public library, etc.), the User should close the browser window when finished with a session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access a User's personal information.
8. Termination of Membership
Paid memberships are effective for a term of one year. At the end of the one-year term, the membership is renewed or canceled. Monarch Link will notify the Member forty-five (45) days prior to the term expiring. Although it is assumed that all Memberships will remain active for one year, a Member may terminate the agency membership and the right to use the Site at any time by sending a letter on company letterhead, stating the agency’s reasons for terminating, to Monarch Link. Monarch Link may terminate a Member's/User’s account or access rights to the Site immediately without notice, if in the Monarch Link’s sole discretion, the Member or User fails to comply with any term or provision of this Agreement. Monarch Link may terminate the Site, or any element of the Site, at any time without notice. Refunds will not be issued for canceled or terminated memberships.

These linked sites are included on the Site for Members' convenience only and each User therefore accesses them at such Member's own risk. Nonetheless, Monarch Link seeks to protect the integrity of the Site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests feedback on not only the Site, but for webpages it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).
A Member is prohibited by this Agreement and by federal and state law from engaging in acts of copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret or other intellectual property or proprietary infringement.
