Description of Services:
When we say Description of Services, this represents a combination of content that we have created and other third parties have contributed.

They are all identified as postings. We make sure that we adhere to the highest standards of ethics and journalism so that relevant and valuable information is provided to our users as part of our services.

Some of the services we offer provide users the chance to take part in forums operated by either Relevance or by a third party. We urge that you exercise extreme caution while choosing to participate in such types of forums. That’s because when sharing your personal identifying information, such as your name or email address in any forum, there is a risk that such information may be illegally accessed and used by persons unauthorized to do so. You must ensure that reasonable precautions are taken when you download any material or content from or through forums. You must also agree to use the forums exclusively to send and receive messages and content that is specific and relevant to that forum.
Directories, Events, and Other Membership Listings
Some of the services we offer allow the users to make their personal information such as name, company association, and designation available to other visitors through the membership directory, events listings, or any other listing for that service. If you do not want some confidential and private information to be available to other users, you can refrain from including such information in any membership directory listing. As is applicable to all content on the website, we reserve the right to remove listings at our sole discretion and without giving out any advance notice if we are convinced that they are inaccurate and were posted without authorization. We will remove them if it appears that they are violating these TOS.
You can download our e-books and other information resources for purposes of general reference, and if you want to contact the author of the e-book or the information resource you are referring to for any reason, you can fill out the form provided on the page to initiate the contact process.

Some of our services conduct promotions from time to time. Such promotions may include contests, auctions, and sweepstakes among other actions and programs. There will be additional rules, terms, and conditions associated with each promotion. The same will be posted on our website or made available to users who want to participate in such promotions. These terms, conditions, and rules will be deemed as incorporated into the TOS and hence will become a part of the main agreement with Relevance.
