The Contents of the Website, and the Website as a whole, are intended solely for personal non-commercial use by you and other users of the Website. You may download one copy of any materials, other than music, found in the Contents on a single computer for your personal, non-commercial use only.

(f) hyper-link to the Website,
without the express prior written permission of an authorized representative of HomeSense.
For these purposes, "co-branding" means to display a name, logo, trademark or other means of attribution of any party in such a manner as is reasonably likely to give a user the impression that such other party has the right to display, publish or distribute the Website or Contents. You agree to cooperate with HomeSense in causing any unauthorized co-branding, framing or hyper-linking immediately to cease.
You agree to prevent any unauthorized copying of the Contents. The TJX Businesses reserve all rights not expressly granted herein.
All comments, feedback, suggestions, ideas and other submissions disclosed, submitted or offered to the TJX Businesses on or by the Website or otherwise disclosed, submitted or offered in connection with your use of the Website (collectively, "Submissions") shall be and remain the property of TJX.

Links to Other Sites and Services
The Website contains links to other sites which are not owned or operated by the TJX Businesses and the TJX Businesses do not warrant, represent or assume any responsibility or liability for the accuracy or completeness of the information or software or other materials downloaded from or contained in any linked site or any site contained in a linked site. The TJX Businesses do not intend links on the Website to be referrals or endorsements of the linked sites, and are providing these links only as a convenience. You should familiarize yourself with the specific legal and privacy information contained in any such websites.
The Website also contains links to other sites operated by the TJX Businesses. We advise you to review the legal information for each such site to which you link, as the terms and conditions of use may vary from website to website.
As is true of many other websites, from time to time we may use a web browser feature known as a 'cookie.' Cookies are very small text files written by an Internet server to a website user's browser when information is exchanged between them. Cookies only contain information that the server computer "knew" in the first place and can only be read by the serving domain that placed them.
Cookies are an essential part of how the Internet works today and allow server computers to recognize your computer's browser when you return. If you have ever gone to a website that automatically provides personalized content to you without you having to log in, such as your own stock portfolio, this is almost certainly being accomplished with a cookie. As cookies are only text files, they cannot run on your computer and have no ability to search your computer for other information or transmit it to anyone. Most cookies are termed 'session cookies.' This means that they expire when you leave the website. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies and can be reset to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. Should you choose to disable any cookies associated with the Website, you will not be able to take full advantage of all the Website's features, but you should be able to navigate the Website without difficulty.
The Contents of the Website are subject to modification by HomeSense and are provided in good faith on an "as is, where is" basis without any warranties, conditions or representations of any kind, either express or implied, to the fullest extent permitted pursuant to applicable laws. We endeavor to ensure that information on the Website is up-to-date, however the TJX Businesses disclaim any and all representations, warranties and conditions with respect to the Website and its Contents, whether express, implied or statutory, including warranties of title, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Prices, product descriptions and all other Contents are made available for information purposes only and may not be accurate or complete.
In addition, the TJX Businesses do not warrant that your use of the Website, or the operation or function of the Website, any component thereof, or any services offered in connection therewith, will be uninterrupted or error free; that defects therewith will be corrected; or that the Website or its server are free of viruses or other harmful elements. In addition, certain information may be updated from a source other than the TJX Businesses and the TJX Businesses do not assume any liability or responsibility for the accuracy of such information. The TJX Businesses are not liable for any damages, including special, indirect or consequential damages, resulting from any use of or reliance on, the Contents provided in the Website.
You acknowledge, by your use of the Website, that your use is at your sole risk, that you assume full responsibility for all costs associated with all necessary servicing or repairs of any equipment you use in connection with your use of the Website and that the TJX Businesses shall not be liable for any damages of any kind, direct or indirect, related to your use of the Website.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold the TJX Businesses, their employees, directors and related entities harmless from and against any and all liabilities, costs and expenses including reasonable attorneys' fees, related to any violation of the Terms by you.
If any provision of these Terms is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then that provision shall be deemed omitted and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
The Terms and your use of the Website shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein. You hereby expressly consent to the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the courts of the Province of Ontario in the city of Toronto, for any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to the Terms or your use of the Website.
