Client represents and warrants that Client has the necessary and full right, power, authority, and capability to accept this Agreement, to bind Client’s organization, and to perform Client’s obligations hereunder. Client can accept this Agreement by: (a) clicking to accept or agree to this Agreement, where this option is made available to Client by Active in the user interface for any Service; (b) where a link to this Agreement appears in an order form or other document provided to Client by Active; (c) by signing this Agreement if there is a designated area to sign; or (d) by actually using the Services. In the case of (d), Client understands and agrees that Active will treat Client’s use of the Services as acceptance of this Agreement from that point onwards.

Each Listing will be linked to the respective url provided by Client.
