WELCOME TO RACO MANUFACTURING & ENGINEERING CO., INC. WEB SITE!

We've designed our web site to be useful, informative, and fun. We hope we've succeeded and hope you'll let us know how we can make it better.

All we ask in return is that you abide by the Terms and Conditions that follow. Please read them carefully, because when you use our site, you automatically agree to them.

THANKS FOR VISITING!

RESTRICTIONS ON YOUR USE OF THE MATERIALS IN OUR SITE.

  • You agree not to re-use material from www.racoman.com or from any other World Wide Web site operated by RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. In particular, you agree not to copy, distribute, republish, upload, post, or transmit anything unless you get our written consent — first.
  • Everything you download — the software, plus all files, all images incorporated in or generated by the software, and all data accompanying it — is considered licensed to you by RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc.

That means that we retain full and complete title to the software and to all of the associated intellectual-property rights. So you're not allowed to redistribute or sell the material — or to reverse-engineer, disassemble, or otherwise convert it to any other form that people can use.

IF YOU SUBMIT MATERIAL TO US...

  • All remarks, suggestions, ideas, graphics, or other information that you communicate to RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. through this site become and remain our property, even if this agreement is later terminated.

    This means that:

    We don't have to treat any such submission as confidential.

    You can't sue us for using the ideas you submit (including, but not limited to, product or advertising ideas).

    If we use them — or anything like them — we don't have to pay you or anyone else for them.

    We will have exclusive ownership of all present and future rights to submissions of every kind. We can use them for any purpose, without compensating you or anyone else for them.
  • You acknowledge that you are responsible for any submissions you make — in other words, you acknowledge that you (and not we) have full responsibility for the message, including its legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality, and copyright.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

It's very important for you to read the next two sections carefully — so important, in fact, that the law actually requires us to put this material in capital letters.

RACO MANUFACTURING & ENGINEERING CO., INC. WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OR INJURY THAT ACCOMPANY OR RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF ITS SITES.

THESE INCLUDE (BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO) DAMAGES OR INJURY CAUSED BY ANY:

JURISDICTION

Unless otherwise specified, the materials in our site are presented to provide information about RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. and its products.

RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. controls and operates its sites from the company's headquarters in Emeryville, CA in the United States of America. We in no way imply that the materials on the site are appropriate or available for use outside of the United States. If you use our site from locations outside of the United States, you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws.

Some software from our site may be subject to export controls imposed by the United States and may not be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-exported to:

(a) (or to a national or resident of) any country to which the United States has placed an embargo (as of today, these include Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Syria, and Yugoslavia); or
(b) anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department's Specially Designated Nationals List or the U.S. Commerce Department's Table of Deny Orders.

If you download or use the software, you are, in effect, confirming to us that you are not located in, are not under the control of, and are not a national or resident of any such country, and that you are not on any such list.

PRIVACY POLICY

RACO is in compliance with the Internet Advertising Bureau's (IAB) privacy guidelines. RACO uses two different methods of collecting information from users of its web site. For users who wish to receive more detailed information on RACO's products and services, a detailed request information form is included on the site. The data gathered from this form will be used to determine what information is sent to the user and to determine if the user is a "qualified" RACO prospect. The user then may receive a package of literature via US mail and subsequent mailings based on various marketing initiatives and the user may receive email messages from RACO and a telemarketing/sale telephone follow-up call.

The second manner of information collection is with regard to RACO's newsletter program. Users will be given the opportunity to opt-in to RACO's email newsletter program. These users will be asked basic questions about their interest and then will be sent related product and service updates and a newsletter via email. In both cases, the user information collected will remain with RACO and its agents and will not be sold or submitted or otherwise distributed to any Third Party. If a user does not wish to receive any of the above contacts by RACO or its agents, then user should not fill out and submit the RACO request information form or the newsletter response form.

In some cases, RACO will use the information gathered in either of the two response forms in conjunction with data that has already been collected by RACO to update existing database information.

While it is not anticipated, RACO will notify users if they intend to use their personal information for purposes other than what it was originally intended and will provide the user with an easy option to notify RACO that they do not wish to be part of that program.

TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT

This agreement is effective until terminated by either party.

You may terminate this agreement at any time, by destroying all materials obtained from any RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. site, along with all related documentation and all copies and installations.

RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. may terminate this agreement at any time and without notice to you if, in its sole judgment, you breach any term or condition of this agreement. Upon termination, you must destroy all materials.

In addition, by providing material(s) on our web site, we do not in any way promise that the materials will remain available to you. RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. is entitled to terminate all or part of any of its web site at any time, without notice to you.

MISCELLANEOUS POINTS ABOUT THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS USER AGREEMENT

These Terms and Conditions, and the agreement they create, shall be governed by and interpreted according to the laws of the State of California (without applying the state's conflict-of-law principles).

If any provision of this agreement is unlawful, void or unenforceable, it will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

RACO Manufacturing & Engineering Co., Inc. may modify these Terms and Conditions, and the agreement they create, at any time, simply by updating this posting and without notice to you.

This is the entire agreement regarding all the matters that have been discussed in the preceding paragraphs.
