3. Capital Confirmation is a Venue.

3.1 Capital Confirmation不是银行或法律事务所,也不是银行或法律事务所的授权代表。我们的网站旨在为用户提供一个可随时随地申请、接收和购买询证函的渠道。 We are not involved in the actual transaction between users of  and providers of the confirmation information.因此,我们无法控制申请和复函的质量、准确性、及时性、合法性或真实性。 We also cannot ensure that a provider will actually complete a transaction.

3.2 身份验证。 当用户在我们网站上注册时,我们会使用多种技术对用户进行身份验证。然而,由于在互联网上进行用户身份验证非常困难,因此Capital Confirmation不会也无法确认每个用户所声称的身份。所以我们建立了一套用户发起的通信系统,以帮助您评估您的交易对象。我们鼓励您通过我们网站上提供的工具,直接与相关方进行沟通。

3.3 免责。 由于我们是一个渠道,因此如果您与一个或多个用户发生争议,那么对于由此类争议引起的或以任何方式与之相关的任何类型和性质的索赔、要求及(实际和间接)损害赔偿(无论是已知还是未知,怀疑还是未怀疑,披露或未披露的),您将免除Capital Confirmation(及其高级职员、董事、代理、子公司、合资企业和员工)的责任。 If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

3.4 信息控制。 我们并不控制其他用户通过我们的系统提供的信息。您可能发现其他用户的信息并不准确。在使用我们的网站时,请务必小心,并运用常识和安全实践。

3.5 客户支持。Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Central Standard Time, customer support shall be available free of charge by telephone or by email at one or more phone numbers or email addresses to be specified on our website located at www.confirmation.com.

5. Address Lookup.

Capital Confirmation从公共和私人数据源中获取地址查询信息。本系统中使用的公共记录、私人记录和商用数据源存在错误,而且并不完整。有时数据的输入质量不佳,并且对其处理方式也不正确。因此不应将本系统视为全然准确的数据来源。使用本系统提供的任何数据之前,应进行独立验证。

6. Out-of-Network Confirmations.

The Out-of-Network confirmation service requires the requestor to enter the contact information for the responder and the responder’s company.作为申请人,您应确定网外询证函发向何人及哪个实体,因此该实体及该实体的人员便是复函方,您同意全权负责对个人复函方及其声称所代表的公司进行身份验证和确认。您理解,Capital Confirmation并未也不会确认复函方或其声称所代表的公司的身份。 You release and hold harmless Capital Confirmation from any and all claims related to the responder’s identity and/or the identity of the company the responder claims to represent if you request confirmations through www.confirmation.com using the Out-of-Network confirmation service.

我们可能随时修订本协议并在网站上公布修订后的条款。 Except as stated below, all amended terms shall automatically be effective immediately upon posting on our site.您不会收到有关本协议任何变更的书面或电子邮件通知。除非经过您和Capital Confirmation Inc.以书面方式签署,否则本协议不得以其他方式进行修订。本协议自1年2003月{[#2]}日起生效。

3. Capital Confirmation is a Venue.

3.1 Capital Confirmation不是会计公司或客户用户,也不是会计公司或客户用户的授权代表。我们的网站旨在为用户提供一个对审计询证函做出回应的渠道。 We are not involved in the actual transaction between users of and providers of the confirmation information.因此,我们无法控制申请和复函的质量、准确性、及时性、合法性或真实性。

3.2 身份验证。 当用户在我们网站上注册时,我们会使用多种技术对用户进行身份验证。然而,由于在互联网上进行用户身份验证非常困难,因此Capital Confirmation不会也无法确认每个用户所声称的身份。所以我们建立了一套用户发起的通信系统,以帮助您评估您的交易对象。我们鼓励您通过我们网站上提供的工具,直接与相关方进行沟通。

3.3 免责。 由于我们是一个渠道,因此如果您与一个或多个用户发生争议,那么对于由此类争议引起的或以任何方式与之相关的任何类型和性质的索赔、要求及(实际和间接)损害赔偿(无论是已知还是未知,怀疑还是未怀疑,披露或未披露的),您将免除Capital Confirmation(及其高级职员、董事、代理、子公司、合资企业和员工)的责任。 If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

3.4 信息控制。 我们并不控制其他用户通过我们的系统提供的信息。您可能发现其他用户的信息并不准确。在使用我们的网站时,请务必小心,并运用常识和安全实践。

3.5 客户支持。Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Central Standard Time, customer support shall be available free of charge by telephone or by email at one or more phone numbers or email addresses to be specified on our website located at www.confirmation.com.

(b) “Directive” – Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and any applicable national legislation or regulation implementing that Directive or any subsequent EU  or Swiss legislation in respect of privacy or data protection as updated amended or replaced from time to time including the Regulation (EU) 2017/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2017 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) and any related national legislation or regulation;

(c) “personal data” “processing”, “data controller”, “data subject and “data processor” shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Directive;

We will comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks, as required, for as long as such mechanism is regarded as providing adequate protection to personal data transferred outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland (as the case may be) by the European Commission and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commission respectively (or other body with such authority).

2.2 Further, we agree to:

(i) act only on instructions from you in connection with the provision of the services (unless otherwise prohibited by applicable law).

Capital Confirmation provides a venue for digital transaction management, including but not limited to, audit confirmations, accounts receivable/accounts payable confirmations, credit inquiries, employee benefit plan audits and confirmations, and legal confirmations for accounting firms, law firms, banks, and other users (the "Service"). Joining and using our Service to respond to audit confirmations is free.我们可能随时自行决定更改部分或全部的服务。在推出新服务时,其费用在该服务推出之时生效。

3. Capital Confirmation is a Venue.

3.1 Capital Confirmation不是银行或法律事务所,也不是银行或法律事务所的授权代表。我们的网站旨在为用户提供一个可随时随地申请和接收询证函的渠道。 We are not involved in the actual transaction between users of and providers of the confirmation information.因此,我们无法控制申请和复函的质量、准确性、及时性、合法性或真实性。 We also cannot ensure that a provider will actually complete a transaction.

3.2 身份验证。 当用户在我们网站上注册时,我们会使用多种技术对用户进行身份验证。然而,由于在互联网上进行用户身份验证非常困难,因此Capital Confirmation不会也无法确认每个用户所声称的身份。所以我们建立了一套用户发起的通信系统,以帮助您评估您的交易对象。我们鼓励您通过我们网站上提供的工具,直接与相关方进行沟通。

3.3 免责。 由于我们是一个渠道,因此如果您与一个或多个用户发生争议,那么对于由此类争议引起的或以任何方式与之相关的任何类型和性质的索赔、要求及(实际和间接)损害赔偿(无论是已知还是未知,怀疑还是未怀疑,披露或未披露的),您将免除Capital Confirmation(及其高级职员、董事、代理、子公司、合资企业和员工)的责任。 If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

3.4 信息控制。 我们并不控制其他用户通过我们的系统提供的信息。您可能发现其他用户的信息并不准确。在使用我们的网站时,请务必小心,并运用常识和安全实践。

3.5 客户支持。Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M Central Standard Time, customer support shall be available free of charge by telephone or by email at one or more phone numbers or email addresses to be specified on our website located at www.confirmation.com.

5. Address Lookup.

Capital Confirmation从公共和私人数据源中获取地址查询信息。本系统中使用的公共记录、私人记录和商用数据源存在错误,而且并不完整。有时数据的输入质量不佳,并且对其处理方式也不正确。因此不应将本系统视为全然准确的数据来源。使用本系统提供的任何数据之前,应进行独立验证。

6. Fraud.

HIPAA/HITECH

The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), includes laws and regulations governing health insurance coverage protection and health information security for Americans and their families. The intent of HIPAA is to assure the portability of health insurance, decrease health care fraud and abuse, improve efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare, enforce standards, and guarantee security and privacy of patient identifiable information.

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, was signed into law on February 17, 2009, to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. Subtitle D of the HITECH Act addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information, in part, through several provisions that strengthen the civil and criminal enforcement of the HIPAA rules.

HIPAA and HITECH compliance certification is the formal way to assure individuals that a provider is committed to protect their medical information.

We are committed to respect the privacy of all health care information and to follow industry standard guidelines for securing patient information.

PCI-DSS Level 3 Compliance

Maintaining payment security is required for all entities that store, process or transmit cardholder data. Guidance for maintaining payment security is provided in PCI security standards. These standards detail the technical and operational requirements for organizations accepting or processing payment transactions, and for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions.
