The Terms are subject to change at any time, with or without notice to you. Each time you access or use the Services, the current version of these Terms will apply. These Terms will always be available on the Site, and you will be alerted to changes to this policy via a pop-up box at the bottom of the page where you will confirm that you were provided the opportunity to review these changes.

Your use of the Services is also subject to our Privacy Policy and CCPA Privacy Policy, available on the Site and incorporated into these Terms by reference.
