Our Products help you find and connect with people, groups, businesses, organizations, and others that are important to you. We design our systems so that your experience is consistent and seamless across the different Sourced Club products that you use.
Enable global access to our services:
To operate our global service, we need to store and distribute content and data in our data centers and systems around the world, including outside your country of residence. This infrastructure may be operated or controlled by Sourced Club or its affiliates.
We provide these services to you and others to help advance our mission. In exchange, we need you to make the following commitments:

· You are prohibited from receiving our products, services, or software under applicable laws.
2. What you can add to your Sourced Club account

You can end this license any time by deleting your content or account. You should know that, for technical reasons, your business can be deleted from the Sourced Club Product apart from the network of other business you have added.

Unless otherwise required by law, we will notify you before we make changes to these Terms and give you an opportunity to review them before they go into effect. Once any updated Terms are in effect, you will be bound by them if you continue to use our Products.

Where appropriate, we will notify you about your account the next time you try to access it.

We cannot predict when issues might arise with our Products. Accordingly, our liability shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and under no circumstance will we be liable to you for any lost profits, revenues, information, or data, or consequential, special, indirect, exemplary, punitive, or incidental damages arising out of or related to these Terms or the Sourced Club Products, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
We try to provide clear rules so that we can limit or hopefully avoid disputes between you and us. Disputes on content and network sales, purchases and products between members or a non financial member will be handled internally through sourced club administration.
