If you do not wish to be bound by this Agreement, do not use the Blender Network Service.
The Blender Network is a service for any Blender professional who offers Blender related contract services. You need to be at least 18 years old to sign up as a member.
The Blender Network reviews each application and reserves the right to refuse admission if the owner cannot make it sufficiently clear that he or she works for an academic institution or runs an actual business. The Network can ask for further information confirming your status.
The Blender Network provides an on-line directory of Blender related businesses and professionals. We run a reasonable quality check on our members, but cannot guarantee their reputation.
Any business between members is on their own risk. The Blender Network is not responsible for any transactions between members. Use common sense when going into business with someone.
Members are responsible for keeping their own information accurate and up to date.
The Blender Network is not responsible for abuse of this information or for any damages resulting from the use of this information.
The membership fee is annual and non-refundable.
You may delete your account at any time by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
