For example, you will not interfere with our Services or try to access them using methods other than what the site, our user interface, the normal usage / work flow, and the instructions that we provide. You will use our Services only for legitimate purposes and only as permitted by law. We reserve the right to immediately suspend or stop providing you our Services if you fail to comply with our terms or policies or if we suspect a potential breach or misconduct committed by you.

Our Services may display some content that are not IDEA LAB’s. These content or information are and remains the sole responsibility of the entity that provided them and/or makes them available. Given the volume and growth of content in the site, we cannot and do not commit to reviewing all the content provided by third party companies and individuals in the site. Nevertheless, should we find (or if we are informed of such by users like you) any content that we consider or deem as illegal, questionable, inappropriate, misleading, or violates our policies or the law, we may immediately remove or refuse to display them without prior notice.
We may send you service announcements, notifications, recommended offers, and other information related to our Services using various channels including email, messaging, SMS, calls, and others. You may opt out of these channels or communications.
Your IDEA LAB Account
An IDEA LAB Account is required for many of our Services. You can register to open your own IDEA LAB Account, or your IDEA LAB Account may be assigned to you by a third party or administrator (i.e. your employer or association). Depending on your type of account, different terms may apply.
It is your responsibility to protect your IDEA LAB Account, password, and your login credentials at all times. You are fully responsible for any and all activities and transactions that happen on or through your IDEA LAB Account.

This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for all application forms and data you have already submitted to IDEA LAB sites). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service.

About these Terms
We may modify these Terms from time to time. You, as a user, agree to regularly and consistently read and review the Terms of the Services. We will post notices of updates or changes to these Terms on this page. Changes become effective immediately but will not apply retroactively. If you continue to use the Services after the new Terms have already become effective, then that would automatically indicate your explicit approval and acceptance to be bound by the new Terms. If in case you do not agree to the modified terms for our Services, you should immediately discontinue your use of our Services.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by these Terms. All rights granted to you are expressly defined by these Terms.
Should you fail to comply with any of these terms, our inability or failure to enforce any right or seek to remedy any breach or take action right away will not be construed as a waiver of such rights nor shall our actual waiver in one or more instances be construed as constituting a continuing waiver or as a waiver of any other breach.
If any provision of these Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of these Terms and Policy shall remain in full force and effect. Where possible, the invalid or unenforceable provision shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law.
Applicable Laws and Jurisdiction

All claims or disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services will be mediated or litigated exclusively in the courts of Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines, and you and IDEA LAB consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
These Terms and all rules and Policies regarding the use of the Services shall be governed exclusively by the law of the Republic of the Philippines. If you reside in a country that will not allow Philippine law to apply to your disputes or will not permit you to consent to the jurisdiction and venue of the courts being Makati City, Philippines, then you may not use these Services and you should stop using the Services immediately.
If you decide to use or continue to use the Services, then you explicitly agree that the laws of the Philippines will solely apply to any disputes arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services.
