5. Revisions and Errata

GMS tries to ensure that all information provided as part of this Sites is correct at the time of inclusion on the Sites, but we do not guarantee the accuracy of such information. We are continually updating our product and service offerings and other information and Content available on the Sites. We may experience delays in updating information on the Sites and in our advertising on other websites. The Content and materials appearing on the Sites could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors or inaccuracies, and may not be complete or current. GMS does not warrant that any of the materials on the Sites are accurate, complete, or current. GMS may make changes to the materials contained on the Sites at any time without notice; however, GMS does not make any commitment to update the materials.

6. Links

Our Sites may contain links to third party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by us. GMS has not reviewed all of the websites linked to the Sites and is not responsible for the contents of any such linked Sites. The inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by GMS of the Sites. You understand that the additional services and/or products available through any of these websites are offered and made available by a third party, and not by GMS, and as such, may be used, edited, reproduced and distributed by such third party outside the scope of these Terms and without our knowledge, endorsement, or control. It is your responsibility to decide whether any services and/or products available through any of these websites are suitable for your purposes. Use of any such linked websites is at your own risk. GMS is not responsible for the owners or operates of these websites or for any goods or services they supply or for other terms or representations in relation to any of these or accept any liability in relation to any of these (including any liability arising out of any claim that the content of any external websites to which this Sites includes a link infringes the intellectual property rights of any third party). The use of third party websites is subject to the terms and condition of the third party provider. GMS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PARTY FOR ANY THIRD PARTY WEBSITESS’ MATERIALS OR ANY USE THEREOF BY YOU OR ANY OTHER USER.

7. Termination

We may terminate, suspend, and/or bar your access to the Sites immediately, without prior notice or liability, at our sole discretion, for any reason whatsoever and without limitation, including but not limited to a breach of the Terms.

All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, provisions regarding ownership, warranty disclaimers, termination, indemnity, limitations of liability, governing law, and those falling under the “Miscellaneous” heading.

8. Sites Terms of Use Modifications

GMS may revise or replace these Terms for the Sites at any time without notice. If a revision is material we will provide at least 30 days’ notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes material change will be determined at our sole discretion.

By using this Sites you are agreeing to be bound by the then-current version of these Terms and Conditions of Use. If you do not agree to the new terms, you are no longer authorized to use the Sites. Any revised terms and conditions and disclaimers shall supersede all previous versions.

9. Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, United States, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You consent to and submit to the jurisdiction of the applicable courts located in Atlanta, Georgia. You waive any defenses based on lack of personal jurisdiction or venue, or inconvenient forum.

10. Additional Terms

If you are a Business Partners or a professional visitor, your use of certain portions of the Sites shall be subject to additional Terms and Conditions for Sale, between you and GMS.

11. Miscellaneous

You acknowledge and agree that the Sites possesses a special, unique, and extraordinary character that would make it difficult to assess the monetary damages resulting from any unauthorized use, and that unauthorized use may cause immediate and irreparable damage to GMS or other Users for which GMS or such other Users would not have an adequate remedy at law. Therefore, you agree that, in the event of such unauthorized use, in addition to other legal and equitable rights and remedies available to GMS, GMS shall be entitled to injunctive and other equitable relief without the necessity of proving damages or furnishing a bond or other security.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between us regarding our Sites, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have had between us regarding the Sites.
