Certain portions of longcanedistrict.org may ask you to create an account. If you choose to create such an account, you agree to provide only true, accurate, current and complete information. You further agree to accept all responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, if any, and that you will not sell, transfer or assign your account or allow others to use it. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any user name and/or password that may assigned to or selected by you so that others may not access any members-only or password-protected portions of longcanedistrict.org using your account and/or identity. The Boy Scouts of America reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without notice to you, to terminate your account and/or to restrict your access to all or part of longcanedistrict.org for any reason, including without limitation for extended periods of inactivity.



This Agreement is effective until terminated by either party. You may terminate this Agreement at any time by destroying all materials obtained from longcanedistrict.org and all related documentation and all copies and installments thereof whether made under the terms of this Agreement or otherwise. This Agreement will terminate immediately without notice from the Boy Scouts of America, if in the BSA's sole discretion you fail to comply with any term or provision of this Agreement, if you are a repeat infringer of any third party's rights, or if you engage in conduct that is illegal, tortuous or that interferes with the technological operation of this site. Upon termination, you must destroy all materials obtained from longcanedistrict.org and all copies thereof, whether made under the terms of this Agreement or otherwise.



The Boy Scouts of America makes no representations or warranties with respect to longcanedistrict.org or its contents, which are provided for use "as is" and "as available." The Boy Scouts of America disclaims all warranties, expressed or implied, including without limitation the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to longcanedistrict.org and any web site with which it is linked. The Boy Scouts of America does not warrant the functions, information or links contained on longcanedistrict.org or that its contents will meet your requirements, that longcanedistrict.org, or its contents, are fit for any particular purpose or that the operation of longcanedistrict.org or its contents, will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that this site or the server that makes it available are free of viruses, worms, trojan horses, cancel bots or other harmful components. The Boy Scouts of America does not warrant or make any representations regarding the use or the results of the use of the materials on longcanedistrict.org in terms of their correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. You (and not the Boy Scouts of America) assume the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction. Applicable law may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so the above exclusion may not apply to you.



By using longcanedistrict.org, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Boy Scouts of America from and against any actual or alleged claims, demands, causes of action, judgments, damages, losses, liabilities, and all costs and expenses of defense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' and other legal fees and costs) arising out of or relating to: (1) your violation of these terms of use or any law, rule or regulation; (2) a claim that is based on your use of any content on longcanedistrict.org; or (3) any material uploaded by you or through your computer to longcanedistrict.org or otherwise sent by you to the BSA.

The BSA reserves the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you will not in any event settle any claim without the prior written consent of the Boy Scouts of America.


You hereby acknowledge that you understand that by accessing longcanedistrict.org and agreeing to these terms of use, you may be waiving rights with respect to claims that are at this time unknown or unsuspected, and in accordance with such waiver, you acknowledge that you have read and understood, and hereby expressly waive, the benefits of the civil code of South Carolina, and any similar law of any state or territory, which provides as follows: "a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."


Limitation of liability under no circumstances, including, but not limited to, negligence, shall BSA be liable for any special, incidental or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, the materials on longcanedistrict.org, even if the Boy Scouts of America or a BSA authorized representative has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Applicable law may not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability or incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. In no event shall the Boy Scouts of America's total liability to you for all damages, losses and causes of action (whether in contract, or not (including, but not limited to, negligence) or otherwise) exceed the amount paid by you, if any, for accessing longcanedistrict.org.

The Boy Scouts of America makes no representation that materials on longcanedistrict.org are appropriate or available for use in other locations.

By downloading or using the Software, you represent and warrant that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list.



This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of South Carolina, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You and the Boy Scouts of America each agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the state of South Carolina and/or Texas and the federal courts of the districts of South Carolina and/or Texas. If any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions, and such provisions shall be deemed modified so that its purpose can be lawfully effectuated and enforced. This is the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter herein.
