TERMS AND CONDITIONS
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
QuiverVision Limited (“Quiver”) provides its service to you subject to the following Terms of Service (“TOS”). We may update these TOS by posting a new version on our website, and your continued use of the Quiver Network (as defined in the ‘Description of Service’ section below) after any such update constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes. If you do not agree to be bound by these TOS, you should discontinue all use of the Quiver Network immediately.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE
Quiver offers its users the opportunity to register for email updates, share content and similar material and enjoy other rich content (the “Service”) as part of its Application and its website (collectively, the “Quiver Network”). Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features that augment or enhance the current Service shall be subject to these TOS.

ACCOUNT PASSWORD AND SECURITY
Some features of the Service require registration (“Restricted Areas”). At the time of registration for online account access, you must provide a valid email address.
