It should be understood that "Internet testing" is world-wide, and because of its universal range, it is accessible to many evaluators in "different countries." Professional Online Testing Solutions, Inc. limits the use of its tests to residents of countries that are members of the Berne Convention, Universal Copyright Convention Treaty and are English speaking, such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States of America. Professional Online Testing Solutions, Inc. also wants to limit its tests' accessibility to responsible, ethical and qualified evaluators. The following "Terms and Conditions of Use" was written to attain that goal. This is why registering a "new account", "logging onto your account" and clicking on the "signature confirmed" button legally binds the registrant or evaluator to the "Terms and Conditions of Use."
