Terms of Service (TOS)
This page contains material that may be referred to as the
"Terms of Service".
General Terms and Definitions
CTS, we, our, and us refer to the owner
and operator of this site, Catskill Technology Services, LLC.
You and your denotes a visitor to, or customer of, this site,
or any other person, robot, or party visiting or making use of the site who is
not part of or directly working on behalf of CTS.
Robots refers to all non-human visitors, including (but not limited
to) web spiders, bots, indexers, robots, crawlers, harvesters, spambots, or
any other computer programs designed to access, read, compile, or gather
content from this Web site. A Web browser being used to read (or convert to
speech) any pages on this Web site for the immediate use of a person operating
the browser is not considered a robot for these purposes, except if any
information is saved or harvested for other uses.
Use of this Web site and all pages on it constitutes a legally binding
agreement by you (whether you are a human or a robot) to abide by the terms
listed on this page. Robotic visitors (such as search engine spiders or
spambots) are subject to these terms, which will be enforced against the
person or persons authoring, controlling, dispatching, or otherwise making
use of the robotic visitors. The access rights granted to you under these
Terms of Service are non-transferable without the express written consent
Various parts of the CTS Web site may include supplemental or additional terms
to what is given on this page. These should be construed as being
in addition to the terms on this page, rather than replacing them.
For example, a forum, blog, or discussion board may include supplemental terms
governing the proper use of that board, such as allowable content and the
rights of CTS to edit content.
All material presented on this site, unless otherwise indicated, is the
property of Catskill Technology Services, LLC; and is protected
under domestic and international copyright laws.

- Do not steal any materials or content, including images
(graphics and pictures).
Caching by search engines and Web browsers is
permitted, so long as no claim of ownership of these materials is made
by those other than the rightful original owners.
- If you first ask permission to use text or images for
noncommercial purposes, we will usually be happy to oblige. For
commercial purposes (purchase of images or republishing of extensive
amounts of text), contact us for permission and fees.
Our contact points are listed
- Do not "hot link" to any materials, including images
(graphics and pictures) — that's theft of the bandwidth we've
- "Deep linking" to an individual page on this site is permitted,
so long as this site's navigation links are not interfered with
(i.e., a browser should be able to click on any page's links to move
about this site).
- It is expressedly forbidden for any system to modify these
pages before presentation to a browser, or to place advertising or other
material on or over a page.
- Do not use our name in any form, including business name,
trademarks, or domain name, in such a manner that would bring
disrepute or bad publicity upon us. This includes, but is not limited
to, using our name to "stuff" a page with text for whatever reason,
such as to capture search traffic. A legitimate listing of links to
domains, such as by a registrar, is benign and permitted.
The conditions listed above apply to all files stored on this site, regardless
of whether they are normally displayed by a Web browser.
Email (e-mail) Addresses and Related
You (whether a human or a robot/spambot), may
not harvest any email addresses listed on this site for purposes
of sale, distribution, spamming, or anything other than the legitimate sending
of email for business purposes related to this site. This covers both
CTS email addresses and any third party email addresses listed on any forum or
Email addresses on this site are considered proprietary intellectual
property, and are provided for the convenience of human visitors alone.
You acknowledge and agree that each email address contained on this Web
site has a value of not less than U.S. $50. You further agree that the
compilation, storage, and/or distribution of these addresses substantially
diminishes the value of these addresses. The damages incurred include (but are
not limited to) time spent having to deal with and clean out junk mail ("spam")
received at these addresses, and damages to usability and reputation caused by
falsely listing these addresses as senders of spam (such as being blacklisted).
Intentional collection, harvesting, gathering, and/or storing this Web site's
email addresses (CTS and other parties) is recognized as a violation of this
agreement and is expressly prohibited.
CTS reserves the right to record visitor's IP (Internet Protocol) addresses,
for use in tracking down spambots and other unwelcome visitors deemed to be
causing harm to CTS, this Web site, or other parties. CTS reserves
the right to blacklist IP addresses of visitors who engage in any prohibited
activity (including, but not limited to, email address gathering and spamming),
and to report them to third parties, including spam blacklisters and legal
Forums and Discussion Groups
CTS uses SMF (Simple Machines Forum) for discussions. There is a separate
file ("agreement.txt") that you must acknowledge reading and agreeing to
before you can finalize your forum registration. The "agreement.txt" is
accessible at any time via the "Terms of Service" link on any forum
page, if you would like to refresh your memory. If CTS updates or modifies
the "agreement.txt" at any time, you will be notified by a method described
in the "agreement.txt".
Please note that the "agreement.txt" is a supplement to terms and
conditions presented on this page (Legal) and on the Privacy page, and does
not replace or override these pages' terms and conditions.
It regulates use of the discussion group (forum) and
spells out rights and obligations of members using the forum. The general
public ("visitors", "non-members", or "guests") may read the forums,
but do not have the ability to make posts.
The gray-shade gradient "cts" logo appearing on each page is a registered
trademark (®) of Catskill Technology Services, LLC ("CTS").

Services", "Catskill Tech", and "catskilltech". This list is not
exhaustive — CTS may claim trademarks on other names not listed here.
Trademarks and registered trademarks of other firms may be used on this site.
CTS will attempt to indicate their status when first used on a page, but can
make no guarantee that it will catch all trademarks thus used. Even if not
explicitly marked as ® or ™, all other trademarks remain the property
of their owners. If you see your firm's trademark used without attribution,
please feel free to
contact us and point it
out — we will be happy to quickly correct the oversight.

proper sales tax rate when making an online purchase.

an exemption, please provide your exemption certificate number.
