Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service.
- User Conduct. You are prohibited from transmitting any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, harassing, pornographic, or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law. You further agree not to upload, post, e-mail or otherwise transmit any confidential information, trade secrets, “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letters,” “pyramid schemes,” any other form of solicitation, or software viruses.
- Links to Other Websites. Our Service may contain links to third party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by LSMMD. LSMMD has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web sites or services. You further acknowledge and agree that LSMMD shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services. We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third party web sites or services that you visit.
- Termination. All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability. We may terminate or suspend access to our Service immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms. Upon termination, your right to use the Service will immediately cease.

- Legal Expenses. If you or LSMMD bring an action to enforce its rights under this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its costs and expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses, and costs, incurred in connection with such action, including any appeal of such action. This fee shifting provision shall be incorporated but not merged in any court order entered against either party pursuant to an action arising from this Agreement. The parties agree that the prevailing party shall be entitled to be reimbursed any post-judgment legal expenses incurred during collection of said judgment.

By using the Service, you assume all risks associated with the use of the Service including any risk of your computer, software or data being damaged by any virus, software, or any other file which might be transmitted or activated via the Service or your access to it. Under no circumstances shall LSMMD, its subsidiaries and affiliates, their respective directors, officers, employees or agents, and other representatives, be liable for any indirect, consequential, incidental, special, or punitive damages, including but not limited to lost profits and business interruption, whether in contract or in tort, including negligence, arising in any way from the use of the Service or of any hyperlinked website even if such party is expressly advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall LSMMD’s liability exceed the total sums received by LSMMD from you during the twelve (12) month period immediately prior to the date the damages first occurred.

These Terms of Service and any policies or operating rules posted by LSMMD on this site or in respect to the Service constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and LSMMD and governs your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
