1. Welcome to Jankowski Research. Jankowski Research is an information service-owned, operated, and published by Jankowski Associates, Inc. on the World Wide Web of the Internet consisting of content compiled from public documents and enhanced by original research. The term "Member" means each person/organization that establishes an account with Jankowski Associates, Inc. by paying for access to the database and using the password assigned to them.

By using this service, you agree to be bound by all the terms of this Agreement. Jankowski Associates, Inc. charges a fee to search its database and to access some of its data.

2. When you become a member of this service at its base price, you are purchasing a service that begins on the date you sign up and ends 12 months later. Members must pay the membership fee in full prior to receiving a password to enter the database. If at any time, payment is denied by Member's bank or credit card company, a Member's password may be revoked. Regardless of use, a password expires after 12 months, and memberships are nonrefundable in full or in part.

A Member is responsible for all use of the Member's account. If the Member suspects that there is or has been unauthorized use of the Member's password, the Member should notify Jankowski Associates, Inc. immediately and then change the applicable password.

A base membership is designed to provide a research service for a single user: a single person logged in on one terminal connected to a single computer. A Member may log in to the database from another terminal or home computer, provided that the database is being accessed by only one computer at a time. This service may not be accessed or made accessible by more than one computer or computer screen. Multi-user/site membership fees are available. In these instances, a password administrator is responsible for administration of the account.

Jankowski Associates, Inc. monitors use of the system in order to ensure a Member's password is not being used in an unauthorized manner. We reserve the right to change the membership fee. However, in such an event, we will notify you in advance and give you an opportunity to retain membership.
