When you are using any service or product on Hiend Software that does not have a separate legal agreement, the Terms of Use set forth here will apply. Hiend Software also may supplement the Terms of Use with posted guidelines or rules applicable to specific areas of Hiend Software. In addition, Hiend Software also may offer other services from time to time that are governed by the terms of service of the respective service partners. 

Because the Terms of Use contain legal obligations, please read them carefully.
