Changes to the Terms
We may periodically make changes to these Terms, in our sole and absolute discretion. When we do, we will update the “Date of Last Revision” date hereunder. It is your responsibility to review the most recent version of these Terms and remain informed of any changes. You agree that your continued use of the Site after the effective date of any changes will constitute your acceptance of the changed Terms for your continued use.
Our mission is to give professionals and companies the best design tools, and the power to connect with CAD service providers. To help advance this mission, we are a distributor of various design tools, but also provide an expert platform (the “Novedge Platform”) for our customers to seek out quality CAD consultants (collectively, the “Services”). The Novedge Platform is provided as a courtesy to CAD experts who wish to connect with other professionals in need of their services.

You also will choose a password and a username. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to notify Novedge immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. Novedge will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your password or account, either with or without your knowledge. However, you could be held liable for losses incurred by Novedge or another party due to someone else using your account or password. You may not use anyone else’s account at any time.

Changes to the Site
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or a part of the Site without notice. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Site.
Subject to these Terms, Novedge grants you a limited, revocable license to access and use the Site solely for the purchase of any products and services sold by Novedge to your organization, or to use the Novedge Platform, as intended by Novedge. No other use of the Site is authorized.
We reserve the right to suspend or permanently disable access to the Novedge Platform or your account for any reason. We may also suspend or disable your account if you repeatedly infringe other people’s intellectual property rights or where we are required to do so for legal reasons.
Where we take such action, we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request a review, unless doing so may expose us or others to legal liability; harm our community of users; compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems or Services; or where we are restricted due to technical limitations; or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think we have disabled your account by mistake.
Except as to any content provided by you for use in the Novedge Platform, we or our affiliates or licensors, or applicable third parties, retain all right, title, and interest in and to the Site and Site Content and any trademarks, logos, or service marks displayed on the Site or in Site Content (“Marks”). The Site, Site Content, and Marks are protected by applicable intellectual property laws and international treaties. You are not permitted to use any Marks without the prior written consent of Novedge or such third party which may own the Mark.
Some content that you share may be protected by intellectual property laws. You own the intellectual property rights (things like copyright or trademarks) in any such content that you create and share on Novedge. Nothing in these Terms takes away the rights you have to your own content. You are free to share your content with anyone else, wherever you want.
However, to provide our services we need you to give us some legal permissions (known as a ‘license’) to use this content. This is solely for the purposes of providing and improving the Services. Specifically, when you share content that is covered by intellectual property rights on or in connection with our Services, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works of your content (consistent with your privacy and application settings). This means, for example, that if you share a profile image on Novedge, you give us permission to store, copy, and share it with others.
This license will end when your content is deleted from our systems. You can delete content individually or all at once by deleting your account. To delete your account, please contact us at email@example.com. When you request deletion of your content, it will no longer be visible to other users once deleted by Novedge, however it may continue to exist elsewhere on our systems where:
immediate deletion is not possible due to technical limitations (in which case, your content will be deleted within a maximum of 90 days from when you request deletion); or
where immediate deletion would restrict our ability to:
investigate or identify illegal activity or violations of our terms and policies (for example, to identify or investigate misuse of our Services or systems);
comply with a legal obligation, such as the preservation of evidence; or
comply with a request of a judicial or administrative authority, law enforcement or a government agency;
in which case, the content will be retained for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it has been retained (the exact duration will vary on a case-by-case basis). In each of the above cases, this license will continue until the content has been fully deleted.
Links and Third-Party Content
From time to time, we may offer promotions to Site visitors. To be eligible for a promotion, you must, for the duration of the promotion, reside in a jurisdiction in which the promotion is lawful. If you take part in any promotion, you agree to be bound by the specific promotion rules and by the decisions of Novedge and our designees, which are final in all matters relating to any promotion. Any awards provided by us or our sponsors or partners are at our sole discretion. We and our designees reserve the right to disqualify any entrant or winner in our absolute discretion without notice. Any applicable taxes on any award are the sole responsibility of each winner.
Novedge may provide you with a mechanism to provide feedback, suggestions, and ideas about the Site or us (“Feedback”). You agree that we may, in our sole discretion, use the Feedback you provide in any way, including in future modifications to the Site, our products, or services.
