PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE ACCESSING AND/OR USING ANY PART OF THIS SITE.
As used in these TOU, the terms "you" and "User" shall mean any visitor to the Site or user of the Services (as defined in Section III, “Description of Services; Limitations on Services,” below), including any Third-Party Vendors (as defined in Section III, below) or any employee thereof, whether for their own personal use or on behalf of their employer.
By accessing the Site or using the Services you are agreeing to accept and comply with these TOU. In addition, by utilizing any of the resources or Services available at the Site, whether by directly accessing the Site or such Services via alternative means (for example, telephone, email, mail or facsimile transmission) you are agreeing to comply with these TOU and any applicable posted guidelines relating specifically to those resources or Services. LeadVision reserves the right to modify these TOU, and any such guidelines, at any time, without notice to you. (See Part II below, “Modifications to This Agreement.”)
If you object to any term or condition of the TOU, or any guidelines, or any subsequent modification to either the TOU or any such guideline, your only recourse is to immediately cease accessing the Site, and to cease using the resources and Services available at the Site. LeadVision retains, but is not obligated to exercise, the right to strictly enforce the TOU and posted guidelines through any means that it may deem necessary or desirable, including, without limitation, self-help and litigation.
From time to time LeadVision shall provide Content (as defined below), together with certain resources and services, all as described more fully on the Site (the "Services")
The Services that LeadVision provides to you may include, but not be limited to, the following: calculators, estimators, proposal solicitation platforms, graphical representations of financial and energy performance data, dashboards, self-evaluation guides (wizards), maps, summaries, digests, member forums, and web logs (blogs); information concerning third-party vendors including, but not limited to, product manufacturers, installers and other contractors, lenders and financial institutions (“Third-Party Vendors”); and product and service descriptions, including materials provided by Third-Party Vendors (whether such materials are delivered to you via the Site or through the Services, or delivered to you directly by a Third-Party Vendor in response to a Submitted Request, as defined in Section IV below, “Requests for Information and Services”).
Your acceptance of these materials, whether displayed or transmitted on the Site, or through the Services by means including, but not limited to, text, User comments, messages, information, data, graphics, articles, brochures, photographs, images, illustrations, software, audio clips, and video clips (collectively, "Content"), is subject to these TOU. LeadVision may change, suspend or discontinue the Services, including any Content, at any time, for any reason. LeadVision may also place limitations on certain features and Services, or restrict your access to parts of or all of the Services, without notice or liability.
Unless expressly stated in writing on the Site or in Content relating to the Services, nothing contained therein shall constitute an offer or promise to deliver any products and services, whether by LeadVision or any Third-Party Vendor. Third-Party Vendors may not offer all products and services described on the Site, or described in Content relating to such services, in all states, or in all communities within a state, and the offer of certain products or services to Users may be subject to certain qualifying criteria that are not established by LeadVision, and over which LeadVision has no influence, authority or control.
Ability to Accept Terms. You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to use this Site. If you are under the age of eighteen (18) years, we do not grant you permission to use this Site, and you must immediately discontinue your use of this Site.
You may extend an invitation to LeadVision or any Third-Party Vendor to provide you with information about products and/or services, or to furnish you with proposals to deliver products and/or services (a “Submitted Request”). Any Submitted Request that you deliver to LeadVision or to a Third-Party Vendor will permit either or both of them, as appropriate, to deliver information and/or proposals to you via the Site, telephone (if you provide your telephone number as part of your Submitted Request), email, mail, facsimile transmission, or any other means. If you provide your telephone number as part of your Submitted Request, your Submitted Request shall also constitute an express written request that authorizes LeadVision or any such Third-Party Vendor to contact you via telephone, even if your telephone number is listed on a state or federal Do Not Call registry maintained pursuant to state or federal law. You will not be called, however, unless:
You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, User-Provided Content, that you may not rely on said User-Provided Content, and that under no circumstances will LeadVision be liable in any way for any User-Provided Content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, or reliance upon, any User-Provided Content posted, emailed, or otherwise made available via the Site or through the Services. You acknowledge that LeadVision does not pre-screen User-Provided Content for accuracy or completeness, and does not endorse any User-Provided Content, either in whole or in part. LeadVision reserves the right, in its sole discretion, but is not obligated, to delete, move, or refuse to accept, any User-Provided Content that violates the letter or the spirit of these TOU, or for any other reason.
Many opinions regarding distributed energy products and services, and financial products and services, may be expressed on the Site or through the Services, whether by LeadVision or its Users. The opinions and statements of Users constitute User-Provided Content. LeadVision can make no claim as to the truthfulness, accuracy, or completeness of opinions and other statements made by Users, and under no circumstances will LeadVision be liable in any way for any User-Provided Content, including the opinions and statements of Users, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, or reliance upon, User-Provided Content.
When you provide LeadVision with User-Provided Content via the Site or the Services, You grant to LeadVision and its affiliates, representatives, and assigns a non-exclusive, fully-paid, world-wide, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to grant sublicenses through multiple tiers of sublicensees, to display, publicly perform, distribute, store, syndicate (including, without limitation, syndication through third-party websites), broadcast, transmit, reproduce, edit, modify, create derivative works, and otherwise use and reuse your User-Provided Content (or any portions or derivative works thereof) in any manner, in any medium, for any purpose. You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of compensation or confidentiality of any nature with respect to any of your User-Provided Content. User-Provided Content is available to all Users of the Site and the Services. LeadVision reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to reject, remove or modify any User-Provided Content.
By providing LeadVision with User-Provided Content via the Site or the Services you thereby represent and warrant that:
LeadVision respects the intellectual property rights of others. Upon proper notice, LeadVision will remove User-Provided Content that violates copyright law, and will terminate the accounts of infringing Users. If you believe that any Content hosted by LeadVision infringes your copyright, simply provide us with the information requested here and we will remove your copyrighted works from the Site and/or the Services.
The Site may contain Content, features and functionalities that may link you or provide you with access to information and content provided by third parties, including Third-Party Vendors, that is completely independent of LeadVision, including web sites, directories, servers, networks, systems, databases, applications, software, programs, products, or services. LeadVision makes no representation or warranty as to the accuracy, completeness, or authenticity of the information obtained from or contained in any such web site, directory, server, network, system, database, application, software, program, product, or service, and under no circumstance will LeadVision be liable in any way for content provided by third parties, including Third-Party Vendors, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, or reliance upon, such content.
LeadVision is an online resource for home and business owners who are evaluating the costs and the benefits of installing distributed energy systems in their homes and businesses. Among other things, LeadVision provides those home and business owners with opportunities to contact Third-Party Vendors including, but not limited to, distributed energy system manufacturers, distributed energy system installers (electricians, plumbers and other contractors), and financiers (banks and other lending institutions) in order to receive additional information from them, including project proposals, estimates for installation and other professional services, and project financing. (See “Submitted Requests,” in Section IV “Requests for Information and Services,” above.)
LeadVision may, in turn, receive a fee or other compensation from these distributed energy system manufacturers, distributed energy system installers and financiers, for providing them with the opportunity to respond to Submitted Requests (“Opportunities”). LeadVision does not charge home or business owners a fee either to use the Site or any of the Services. Neither is LeadVision itself a distributed energy system manufacturer, a distributed energy system installer, a contractor, a distributor, or broker of energy-related products. Under no circumstance will LeadVision be liable in any way for services or products provided by third parties, including Third-Party Vendors, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of, or reliance upon, such products or services.
LeadVision is not authorized, and hereby specifically declines any such authority if offered, to act as an agent on behalf of any distributed energy system manufacturer, or any distributed energy system installer or other contractor, or financier, except for the purposes of generating Opportunities in the manner described in the previous paragraph.
From time to time LeadVision does enter into partnerships with for-profit companies and firms, non-profit organizations, municipalities and other governmental entities, and employers (collectively “Channel Partners”), to offer their customers, clients, members, constituents, and employees the Services provided at the Site, as described in Section III, “Description of Services; Limitations on Services,” above.
Your dealings with organizations, firms, and/or individuals found on or through the Site or the Services, or with any Channel Partner with whom you are affiliated, including any payment(s) for the delivery of goods and/or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, whether or not you have authorized LeadVision in writing to serve as your agent on a fee-for-service basis, are solely between you and such organizations, firms, Channel Partners, and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel is necessary or appropriate prior to engaging in any transaction, financial or otherwise, with any of these third parties, including Channel Partners and Third-Party Vendors, whether or not you engage in any transaction, financial or otherwise, with any of these third parties, including upon the suggestion of LeadVision after authorizing LeadVision in writing to provide you with consulting services or to act as your agent on your behalf on a fee for service basis.
You agree that LeadVision shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any kind that is incurred as the result of any such dealings with organizations, firms, Third-Party Vendors, and/or individuals found on or through the Site or the Services, or with any Channel Partner. If there is a dispute between you and any other User(s) of the Site or the Services, or any third party, including any Channel Partner with whom you are affiliated, or Third-Party Vendor, you understand and agree that LeadVision is under no obligation to resolve the dispute, or assist with its resolution. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other Users of the Site or the Services, or any third party, including any Channel Partner with whom you are affiliated, or Third-Party Vendor, you hereby release LeadVision, its officers, employees, agents and successors in rights from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. If you are a California resident, you hereby waive California Civil Code 1542, which states: “[a] general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if know by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” If you are a resident of a state other than California with a law similar to the law just cited, you hereby waive that similar law.
You promise not to use the Site or any of its Services for any purpose that is unlawful, that is otherwise prohibited by these TOU, or that is not reasonably intended by LeadVision. Neither may you use the Site nor any of the Services in any manner that could interfere with another party's use and enjoyment of the Site, or any of the Services.

Each of the preceding is provided as an example of, and not as a limitation on, prohibited conduct.

You further agree not to advertise to, or solicit, any User to buy or sell any products or services, except as permitted by LeadVision. You are prohibited from using any information obtained from the Site or the Services in order to contact, advertise to, solicit, or sell to any User without the express written consent of such User having exclusively first been obtained by means of a Submitted Request. (See Section IV, “Requests for Information and Services,” above.)
