The Site and all information is provided "AS IS" and with all faults, and Austin Telco makes no representations and disclaims all implied warranties of every kind, including warranties or any duties (if any) as to accuracy, timeliness, completeness, suitability, availability, merchantability, and fitness for any particular purpose, or lack of negligence or viruses.

Security and Attribution

The information you send us is stored on computers that sit behind a firewall to shield it from the Internet. Our firewall met all the standards required to receive certification by the International Computer Security Association. You communicate with our computer by using your computer's web browser. Some areas of our Web Site are secured in order to obtain personal information for member transactions. We only support browsers that use Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") 3.0 (or higher). You may need to update your browser occasionally to use the Site. Depending on the type of information being transmitted, one of two levels of security will be used on our site: 40-bit encryption and 128-bit encryption. Encryption essentially establishes a secret code for your information that must be unscrambled to read. However, it is not foolproof. SSL is intended to help ensure that:

The information you send us will not be read by others, and you are in fact dealing with Austin Telco, instead of a site impersonating us. You can check this by verifying the Site Certificate Properties. Your information reaches us through SSL to help protect the contents of the message from eavesdropping.

Web Access Authorization Codes ("Authorization Codes") for access to your account via remote services are for security purposes. It should not be stored on your computer and should not be the same as any of your other codes or passwords. You will be better protected if you change your authorization code(s) frequently and do not use the same authorization code for any other Internet site. DO NOT DISCLOSE OR OTHERWISE MAKE YOUR AUTHORIZATION CODE(S) AVAILABLE TO ANYONE. IF YOU AUTHORIZE ANYONE TO USE YOUR AUTHORIZATION CODE(S). THAT AUTHORITY MAY BE ATTRIBUTED TO AND OBLIGATE YOU.

If you are ever uncomfortable with reaching us electronically, you may instead use traditional methods of reaching us such as using the telephone, U.S. mail or visiting one of our Austin Metro Locations (as long as the service is available through those methods).

No incidental or consequential damages

To the full extent allowed by applicable law, you agree that neither Austin Telco nor any of its affiliates will be liable to you and/or any third party for any consequential or incidental damages (including but not limited to lost profits or lost opportunity), or any other indirect, special, or punitive damages whatsoever, that arise out of or are related to the Site, or any use of it or information in it, even if Austin Telco has been advised of the possibility of such damages. This exclusion of damages includes damages claimed in any cause of action, including but not limited to legal or equitable proceedings and claims relating to contract, tort products liability.

Limitation on damages and exclusive remedy

You agree that your recovery for any damages that you incur shall be limited, at Austin Telco's election, to: (1) a refund of any amount (if any) you paid for information from the Site or for any use that caused a problem, or (2) correction or replacement of the information.
