Terms and Conditions
This Agreement (the "Agreement") is a legal agreement between DeskPort Technologies, Inc. ("DeskPort Technologies"), which owns the MileTracker computer software application and any associated media and related printed or electronic materials (collectively, "MileTracker") and the individual person who licenses MileTracker from DeskPort Technologies. MileTracker was developed by DeskPort Technologies for users of the USATODAY.com website, which is owned and operated by USATODAY.com, a division of Gannett Satellite Information Network, Inc. ("USATODAY.com") as a product designed to retrieve certain information from various Internet web sites, making your access to that information faster and easier than access via existing browsers. Access to and use of MileTracker is provided to you subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
You may not access or use MileTracker unless you are at least 18 years old. Over time, DeskPort Technologies may make changes to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If changes are made, DeskPort Technologies will notify you of the changes by posting them prominently on the Download Website (as defined herein) or sending them to you by e-mail. If you do not want to agree to a change that DeskPort Technologies makes, please discontinue your use of MileTracker at that time. If you continue to use MileTracker after DeskPort Technologies has notified you of a change, you agree to be bound by that change.
