In the event of not accepting these terms, refrain from using our web. The use of "we", "our" or "MAKARA" in these terms refers to MAKARA INSIGHTS Software Corporation, and "you" or "your" refers to you as a user of our web. THESE TERMS INCLUDE AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND WAIVER OF YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. We reserve the right to modify these terms and publish a new version thereof in our web for any reason and at any time. These changes do not affect your rights and previous obligations. If you continue to use our web after we have posted any changes to the terms, you accept the terms in force at that time.

1. We do not sell products from the maritime industry Our web is a reference comparator of rates, prices, report creator and alerts. MAKARA does not offer, does not own, nor does it manage the maritime industry services or products appearing in our web, such as freight rates, types of containers, penalties for detention, demurrage, damage to containers, free days, or insurance (the "products"). The products are owned by the administrators or are made available by third parties (the "supplier" or "suppliers") directly or indirectly (i. e., shipping lines and/or NVOCC's [Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers]). You are responsible for accepting and understanding the terms and privacy policies of the suppliers. You are responsible for any interaction between you and the suppliers, which you may access through the reference data of our web. MAKARA is not responsible for any inconvenience that may arise with your acquiring the product from the suppliers. MAKARA shows you references to products of the maritime industry or suppliers in our web, but this in no way implies, suggests, or constitutes a recommendation to use them. Nor does it mean that MAKARA sponsors, endorses, or is affiliated with the suppliers. MAKARA shows referentially suppliers' contents and prices of products of the maritime industry. MAKARA is not responsible for the suppliers' providing accurate, updated or complete contents. MAKARA does not administer or verify the products offered by suppliers because, the information comes from public data and other sources, is obtained by statistical studies and market projections made by this company; accordingly, all the prices displayed in our web are merely referential. Prices change constantly and additional charges may apply (i. e., escrow, fees, service charges, billing fees, and local taxes). It is possible that some suppliers charge their products in a currency other than the pre-selected one or the one that you chose to display the results. Our exchange rate is for reference only, so you should not deem it to be accurate and up-to-date.
