Information and event registration for members and prospective members of RPRS. Any and all visitors to our site, despite whether they are registered or not, shall be deemed as “users” of the herein contained Services provided for the purpose of this TOS. Once an individual register’s for our Services, through the process of creating an account, the user shall then be considered a “member.”
The user and/or member acknowledges and agrees that the Services provided and made available through our website and applications, which may include some mobile applications and
that those applications may be made available on various social media networking sites and numerous other platforms and downloadable programs, are the sole property of Raleigh Public
Relations Society. At its discretion, Raleigh Public Relations Society may offer additional website Services and/or products, or update, modify or revise any current content and Services, and this
Agreement shall apply to any and all additional Services and/or products and any and all updated, modified or revised Services unless otherwise stipulated. Raleigh Public Relations Society does
hereby reserve the right to cancel and cease offering any of the aforementioned Services and/or products. You, as the end user and/or member, acknowledge, accept and agree that Raleigh
Public Relations Society shall not be held liable for any such updates, modifications, revisions, suspensions or discontinuance of any of our Services and/or products. Your continued use of the

review of this Agreement and any and all applicable terms and policies should be made by you to ensure you are aware of all terms and policies currently in effect. Should you not agree to the
updated, revised or modified terms, you must stop using the provided Services forthwith.
Furthermore, the user and/or member understands, acknowledges and agrees that the Services offered shall be provided “AS IS” and as such Raleigh Public Relations Society shall not assume

thereby granting permission for his/her child or children to access the various Services provided, including, but not limited to, message boards, email, and/or instant messaging. It is the parent’s
and/or legal guardian’s responsibility to determine whether any of the Services and/or content provided are age-appropriate for his/her child.
