We reserve the right to amend these Terms of Use from time to time in our sole discretion and will post and maintain the most recent version of these Terms of Use on the Website. You are responsible for reviewing these Terms of Use upon each visit to the Website. You can determine if the Terms of Use have been revised since your last visit by referring to the “Last Updated” date at the bottom of this document.

Use of Website

GBBG authorizes you to view and/or download the materials at www.gbbg.org and other websites that are linked to this site or affiliated with this site (collectively, the “Services”), under the condition that all the information, programs, processes, methodologies, communications, software, scripting, photos, text, video, graphics, sounds, images and other materials and services found on the Website (collectively “Content”) may not be copied or distributed, or republished, uploaded, posted, publicly displayed, performed, distributed or transmitted in any way, without the prior written consent of GBBG EXCEPT: only for your personal, non-commercial use, and provided that you retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained in the original materials on any copies of the materials. For purposes of these Terms, any use of this Content on any other website or networked computer environment for any other purpose is prohibited.

Copyrights, Trademarks & Service Marks

Unless otherwise noted, all Content and other materials on the Website are protected as the copyrights, trade dress, trademarks and/or other intellectual properties owned by GBBG or by other parties that have licensed their material to GBBG. The Content of the Services is copyrighted, and any unauthorized use of the Content of the Services may violate copyright, trademark, and other laws, in addition to being a material breach of these Terms of Use.

There are a number of proprietary logos, service marks, trademarks, slogans and product designations (“Marks”) found on the Website. By making these Marks available on the Website, GBBG is not granting you a license to use them in any fashion. Access to the Services does not confer upon you any license under any of GBBG’s or any third party’s intellectual property rights. Use of GBBG’s proprietary logos, service marks, trademarks, slogans and product designations found on this Website by users is restricted as set forth in the Terms of Use.

Other than nominative uses, GBBG’s marks may be used publicly only with prior written permission from GBBG. Fair use of GBBG’s marks in advertising and promotion of GBBG products requires proper acknowledgment. No GBBG mark may be used as a hyperlink without GBBG’s prior written permission. Other trademarks that may appear in connection with the Services may be owned by third-parties and used with the permission of the third-parties. You also agree not to use those trademarks without the permission of their respective owners.

Links To Third Party Web Websites

The Services may provide links to other third-party websites or resources. Such links to third party websites in the Services are provided solely as a convenience to you, and do not constitute or imply an endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation of, or affiliation with the third party or its products and services. GBBG has not reviewed all of these third-party sites and does not control and is not responsible for any of these sites or their content. Thus, GBBG makes no representations whatsoever about any other website, which you may access through the Services, or any information, software or other products or materials, found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them. If you decide to access any of the third-party sites linked to the Services, you acknowledge and agree that GBBG is not responsible for the availability of such external sites or resources and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, services or other materials on or available from such sites or resources. It is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your use is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses and other items of a destructive nature, and you do so entirely at your own risk. Accordingly, you agree that GBBG 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 third-party materials, content, products or services available on or through any such site or resource.


Certain aspects of the Services may require or involve sales fees, transaction fees, and other types of fees (“Fees”). By using these aspects of the Services, you consent to the Fees involved and agree that you decided to use the Services with full knowledge of the Fees. 


The materials, information, and services provided in the services are provided “as is” without any warranties of any kind including warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property.

GBBG does not warrant or make any representations regarding the availability, use, timeliness, security, validity, accuracy, or reliability of, or the results of the use of, or otherwise respecting, the site, the software, the content of the site or the software or any other websites linked to or from the site.

GBBG does not warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the materials, data or information in the services in terms of their correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. While GBBG may make reasonable efforts to provide accurate and timely information about GBBG on the site, you should not assume that the information provided is always up to date or that the site contains all the relevant information available about GBBG. GBBG undertakes no obligation to verify or maintain the currency of such information.

Any material downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of the services is done at your own discretion and risk and you are solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any such material, or use of the services. Information published at the site may refer to products, programs or services that are not available in your geographic location.

The information presented on the site or broadcast from the site with website software by GBBG from GBBG publications, writings and/or third-party books or writings is for information purposes only and is not meant to serve as a substitute for professional legal or financial advice which should be obtained through consultation with appropriate professionals in your state. 


You will indemnify, defend, and hold us, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, representatives, successors, and assigns harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs) (collectively, “Losses”) that constitute, or arise out of or in connection with your (a) failure to comply with any of these Terms of Use or (b) use of the Website. These defense and indemnification obligations will survive these Terms of Use and your use of the Website. We have no obligation whatsoever to indemnify, defend, or hold you harmless from any Losses resulting from, relating to, or arising out of, these Terms of Use or the Website. 

Limitation of Liability

In no event will GBBG, its suppliers, or other third parties mentioned in the services be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, those resulting from lost profits, lost data or business interruption, or caused by or related to errors, omissions, interruptions, defects, delay in operation or transmission, computer virus, line failure, and all other direct, indirect, special, incidental, exemplary or consequential damages) arising out of the use, inability to use, or the results of use of the services, any web sites linked to the site, or the materials or information or services contained at any or all such sites, whether based on warranty, contract, tort or any other legal theory and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages. If your use of the materials, information or services from the site or the software results in the need for servicing, repair or correction of equipment or data, you assume all costs thereof. Applicable law may not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. Notwithstanding the foregoing, GBBG’s total liability to you for all losses, damages, and causes of action, including but not limited to those based on contract, tort or otherwise, arising out of your use of the services, its content or links, shall not exceed the amount you paid to access this site.

Because some jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, some of the above limitations may not apply to you.

Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement

GBBG respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same. GBBG will, upon receiving proper notice, act to remove or disable access to any such material as set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 USC § 512).

GBBG may make changes to the materials and services at this Website, or to the products and prices described in them, at any time without notice. You should visit this page from time to time to review the then-current Terms of Use because they are binding on you. Certain provisions of these Terms of Use may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages at this Website.

In the event of an irreconcilable inconsistency between the Additional Terms and this Terms of Use, the Additional Terms shall control.


GBBG’s failure to enforce any part of these Terms of Use shall not constitute a waiver of any of GBBG’s rights under these Terms of Use, whether for past or future actions on the part of any person. Neither the receipt of any funds by GBBG nor the reliance of any person on GBBG’s actions shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any part of these Terms of Use. Only a specific, written waiver signed by an authorized representative of GBBG may provide a legal waiver.


If any provision of these Terms of Use shall be found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and conditions and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
