Cohen Ventures, Inc., DBA Energy Solutions, and its Client(s) (collectively the "Administrators", "We" or "Us") formed an agreement for the purpose of developing www.csithermal.com (the "Project"). In connection with the Project, the Administrators have developed an online platform (the "Platform") to provide certain authorized and interested parties with access to various documents, tasks, deliverables, and other information regarding the Project, including information that has been provided or may in the future be provided by users of the Platform (collectively, the "Content"). Access to the Platform and to the Content is for informational purposes only. Users of the Platform may only access the Content that they are explicitly authorized to access, and any extraction, printing, or distributing, or attempting to extract, print, or distribute any of the Content other than for the purposes of the California Solar Initiative Thermal Program ("CSITP") is strictly prohibited.
The Administrators reserve the right, at any time and in their sole discretion, to modify, alter, or update the Terms without prior notice to you. It is your responsibility to review the Terms periodically for updates and changes as they will be binding upon you. The date that revisions were last made to the Terms will be listed at the top of the page. You should revisit the Terms on a regular basis as revised versions will be binding on you and will be effective as of the date the Administrators post new Terms. If at any time you find the or any revised Terms unacceptable, you must immediately cease all use of the Platform. Your continued access to the Platform means that you agree to the new Terms, even if you have not reviewed the changes. You understand and agree that your continued access to the Platform after the effective date of modifications to the Terms indicates your acceptance of the modifications.
