The System permits users with appropriate software and connectivity to accomplish certain statistical analysis and reporting functions. You may accomplish tasks using the System by establishing an Internet link with Validas’ Internet server, by entering or posting queries using that link and by requesting and receiving Data using that link. Validas, at its exclusive discretion, shall determine extent of access, which shall be limited by Validas in form, substance and content to meet your needs and requirements, and shall permit access to the System on a non-exclusive basis, subject to the terms of this Agreement and provided further that Validas may restrict or condition access and use at any time if it reasonably believes that such continued access or use will imminently and materially disrupt, degrade or injure continued function or use of, the System with respect to other Validas customers.
1.02. Equipment, Software and Connectivity Requirements. Proper function of the Validas System requires your compliance with minimum specifications for equipment, software and connectivity. It is your duty to acquire, maintain and/or install all necessary equipment and connectivity, including, but not limited to, common carrier related equipment (such as a modem) and communication (such as internet connectivity) services.

These recommendations are based on the bill you submit to the System and Your plan as well as most features on your bill and may include what wireless plan or features you may wish to add/remove on your account.
