ClutchPR has employees, independent contractors, and representatives (“our Team”).

By dealing with ClutchPR, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use ClutchPR products/services or products in a way that violates any laws or regulations. (Representing and warranting is like making a legally enforceable promise.) ClutchPR may refuse products/services, close accounts of any users, and change eligibility requirements at any time.
The Term begins when you begin using/receiving ClutchPR products/services and continues as long as you use the our products/services.

Once terminated, we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your information from our Website.
