You will not, nor will permit others to, copy, modify, distribute, reproduce, use, transmit, publish, create derivative works of, publicly display or perform, or disclose any Materials in any form for any purpose. You will not alter the appearance of the Materials or remove our name or logo from the Materials, unless expressly approved by Tasktop. “Whitelabeling” is strictly prohibited. We determine the Materials that we make available to you under this Agreement, and there is certain content that may not be accessible by you unless you are a customer of ours or pay a fee.
You are permitted to use the Materials solely for your internal business purposes only, subject to the restrictions specified in these Terms.
As a condition of using the Services or Materials, you must accept the terms of this Agreement and agree to pay any fees that apply to such Services or Materials.
Upon completion of a certification course offered by Tasktop and payment of applicable fees, Tasktop will grant you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, non-sublicensable, personal, revocable right to designate yourself with the applicable certification and to use the same to market, advertise and promote your certification (a “Certification”). You will be granted no other right, title or license to the Certification. Your use of a Certification is subject to the Terms. You may use your Certification for one (1) year from the date of completion of such Certification (the “Certification Term”), unless specified otherwise by Tasktop.
If you would like to issue a press release announcing your Certification status, you may do so upon our prior written consent. To seek to obtain this written consent, you should send a copy of your draft press release to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Termination of Certifications
You may terminate your Certification at any time upon request to Tasktop.
Tasktop reserves the right to terminate your use of the Services or Materials for cause and revoke your Certification at any time upon written notice to you. Cause for termination includes, without limitation: (i) your breach of these Terms, (ii) Tasktop’s determination, in its sole discretion, that you have misrepresented your Certification. Upon termination or expiration of these Terms or your Certification, all rights related to your Certification, including all rights to use your Certification will immediately terminate, and you must immediately cease to represent yourself with such certification . Except as provided herein, you will have no further rights under these Terms after their termination or expiration and you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees previously paid.
Tasktop reserves all rights to its trademarks, service marks and logos, which together with the trademarks, service marks and logos of subsidiaries of Tasktop will be collectively referred to as “Tasktop Marks.”
No employee or other representative of Tasktop is authorized to grant permission to use Tasktop Marks or to provide guidance in their use, unless licensed within a formal written agreement signed by a duly authorized officer of Tasktop. Thus, any promise or other representation with respect to Tasktop Marks by a Tasktop employee in the absence of a formal written agreement cannot be relied upon.
The Tasktop Marks are highly valued intellectual property, and therefore Tasktop will take the necessary steps to guard against dilution and the use of third-party marks which are confusingly similar to Tasktop Marks or which are likely to cause confusion with Tasktop Marks.

The failure of Tasktop to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the intentions of Tasktop and you as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect.
