Resource use issues and concerns
The Kaizen Company makes every effort to ensure that we have permission to post, distribute, or link to all resources on Kaizen Connect, in the manner that we post them. Kaizen also prohibits users from posting information that infringes or violates copyright rights and/or other intellectual property rights. However, with the thousands of documents available, often uploaded within short deadlines, and our acceptance of users contributed content, we cannot guarantee that there will be no errors. We expressly disclaim liability for copyright errors and omissions in the contents of this Web site.
If you feel that we do not possess such rights for one or more resources contained herein, or if you feel that any content on this site is inappropriate, please write us at: [email protected], stating the specific resource(s) to which you refer and the nature of your claim. Should we deem your claim valid we will remove the resource(s) in question immediately.
