    1.2. By accessing our Platform and any of its pages, you signify that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use. Furthermore, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms of Use on behalf of the business entity you are representing, that by using our Platform you are also accepting the Terms of Use on behalf of that entity, and that if you violate the Terms of Use, you and the entity agrees to have joint liability towards us.
