For the avoidance of doubt, if you click the “I accept” button (or its equivalent) on behalf of an entity, organization, or Legal Entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms on behalf of such entity or organization--in which case “you” and “your” will refer to that entity or organization.
