STAY IN CONTACT SERVICE
When used herein, "Stay In Contact Service" shall refer to both the StayInContact.Com web site and the Stay-In-Contact Automatic Follow-Up System and any derivatives thereof as applicable.

The Stay In Contact Service may only be used in connection with email lists for which recipients have voluntarily registered. Using the Stay In Contact Service to send email to an address you obtain without the consent of such addressee is a violation of ConsulNet policy.

ConsulNet has the right to terminate your access to the Stay In Contact Service, or terminate the Stay In Contact Service, at any time. In addition, ConsulNet reserves all legal and equitable remedies available to it (including, terminating your access to the Stay In Contact Service) for violation of any of these terms of use.

SPONSORS
The Stay In Contact Service will store and manage a mailing list ("Mailing List") for each Sponsor's offering(s) and provide the interfaces through which individuals may subscribe and un-subscribe to such mailing lists. Sponsors agree to honor the request of the owner of any email address to remove that address from a Mailing List.

SUBSCRIBERS
If you register with a Mailing List, you acknowledge that the owner of the mailing list may remove your email address from such Mailing List, in its discretion and at any time, and that your participation in such Mailing List may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may be altered from time to time. You also agree that the Stay In Contact Web Site and the Sponsor of the respective Mailing List may send you email messages at any time until such time that you unsubscribe from the Mailing List using the interface provided by the Stay In Contact Service and said unsubscription is recorded in the Stay In Contact Service database.
