Purchasers agree to be bound to all terms and conditions by placing an order for assessments, tests or consulting services, or by part or total payment of VMBhits.com‘s invoice for any tests, materials, or services ordered. No modification or additions to these terms and conditions are binding upon VMBhits.com unless previously agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of VMBhits.com.
All prices and terms are subject to change without notice and are exclusive of taxes and shipping and handling charges.

Purchaser acknowledges and agrees the contents of VMBhits.com’s tests may constitute trade secrets, which include confidential and proprietary material, information, and procedures. Purchaser will not resell or otherwise distribute materials, or authorize or allow disclosure of the contents of a test instrument protocol, including test questions and answers, or normative data, except under the limited circumstances described in the section titled “Maintenance of Test Security,” or as otherwise contemplated in the materials associated with the test. Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that the use or disclosure of trade secrets in a manner inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement may cause VMBhits.com or its vendors irreparable damage for which remedies other than injunctive relief may be inadequate. Accordingly, you agree that in any request by VMBhits.com to a court of competent jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief seeking to restrain such use or disclosure, you will not maintain that such remedy is not appropriate under the circumstances.

- Test takers must not receive test answers before beginning the test.
- Test questions are not to be reproduced or paraphrased in any way.
- Access to test materials must be limited to qualified persons with a responsible, professional interest who agree to safeguard their use.
- Test materials and scores may be released only to persons qualified to interpret and use them properly.
- No reproduction of test materials is allowed in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical.
- Test materials may not be resold or distributed for any purpose.
