Notification that Information Provided by You is Public Information


Any information provided by you to Authority, including but not limited to feedback, responses, listings, questions, comments, and suggestions, are non-confidential; moreover, such information is a public record subject to public inspection pursuant to law. The Authority has no obligation of any kind with respect to such information and is free to reproduce, use, and disclose the information to others without limitation. Additionally, the Authority is free to use any ideas or concepts contained in such information for any purpose whatsoever. The Authority's Privacy Policy explains how the Authority handles the information about your use of the Authority's website.


User agrees to protect, defend, reimburse, indemnify and hold the Authority, its agents, employees, and officers and each of them, free and harmless at all times from and against any and all claims, liability, expenses, losses, costs, fines and damages (including reasonable attorney fees) and causes of action of every kind and character (this is to the extent allowed by the law except to the extent caused by Authority's negligence) by reason of any claim for infringement of any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property rights; any damage to property; or any bodily injury (including death) incurred or sustained by any person or entity whomsoever, arising out of or incident to or in connection with User's use of the website or any breach of the terms of this Agreement.


This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Florida, USA. User consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of courts in Hillsborough County, Florida, USA in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of the website. Use of the website is unauthorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including without limitation this paragraph.

The Authority's performance of this Agreement is subject to existing laws and legal process and nothing contained in this Agreement is in derogation of the Authority's right to comply with law enforcement requests or requirements relating to the User's use of the website or information provided to or gathered by the Authority with respect to such use.


If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitation set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect.


This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the User and the Authority and its contractors and agents with respect to the website and it supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between the User and the Authority with respect to the website. This Agreement shall be deemed to include all other notices, policies, disclaimers and other terms contained in the website; provided, however, that in the event of a conflict between such other terms and the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control. A printed version of this Agreement and of any notice given in electronic form will be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to this Agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Revisions to this Agreement may be made from time to time and will be posted to this location.
