4. If We Provide a Link, We Do Not Necessarily Endorse a Third Party
We reserve the right to terminate a link to a third-party Web site at any time. The fact that we provide a link to a third-party Web site does not mean that we endorse, authorize or sponsor that Web site. It also does not mean that we are affiliated with the third-party Web site's owners or sponsors.

5. If a Third Party Links to Our Web Site, It Is Not an Endorsement
If a third party links to our Web site, it is not necessarily an indication of an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, affiliation, joint venture or partnership by or with us. In most cases, we are not aware that a third party has linked to our Web site.

We do not want to receive confidential or proprietary information from you through our Web site. If you transmit to or post on our Web site any material, data, information, or idea by any means, it will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary and may be disseminated or used by us for any purpose.
You are not authorized to post on or transmit to or from our Web site any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane material, or any other content that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under the law.

7. Your Use of Our Web Site Is Restricted
Our Web site and its content are owned and operated by us. Our Web site's content is eligible for protection under U.S. and worldwide copyright laws and treaty provisions. In addition, our Web site content is eligible for protection under domestic and foreign trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and communications regulations and statutes.
No content from www.bushmaster.com, or any other Web site owned, operated, licensed or controlled by us may be copied, reproduced, republished, modified, uploaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any way. You also may not, without our permission, "mirror" any material contained on our Web site on any other server. The sole exceptions to these restrictions are:

  • You obtain written permission from us to waive these restrictions; or
  • You may download one copy of the content on a single computer for informational, non-commercial and personal use only, provided you keep intact all copyright and other proprietary notices and do not modify, and will not copy or post, the content on any network computer or broadcast in any media.

If you violate these restrictions, you may be subject to civil and criminal penalties. If we grant you permission to waive these restrictions, the permission terminates automatically if you breach any of these terms or conditions.

8. By Providing Content, We Do Not Allow You to Use Our Trademarks
The trademarks, service marks, and logos of Bushmaster Firearms International, used and displayed on our Web site are our registered and unregistered trademarks. Nothing on this Web site should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any of our trademarks without our written permission. Requests to use trademarks owned by other companies which may be mentioned on this Web site should be directed to such other companies. We aggressively enforce our intellectual property rights. The name of Bushmaster Firearms International or our logo may not be used in any way, including in advertising or publicity pertaining to distribution of materials on our Web site, without prior written permission.

9. We Are Not Providing Investment Advice Nor Soliciting Offers
Nothing in this site constitutes investment advice, including our SEC filings. If we decide to, we provide investor relations materials for your convenience and information only. In addition, investor relations materials and our other Web site content are not offers to sell or solicitations of an offer to buy any security.
There are no guarantees about the future performance of the stock market or our stock. Before you invest in any security, you should protect yourself by being an educated investor.

10. Investors Should Not Rely on Forward-Looking Information
Some of the statements on our Web Site, including those relating to projected future financial performance or events, are considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, specifically the Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts of future events. Sometimes these statements will use words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," "outlook," "forecast," and other similar words. These statements are not guarantees of our future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other important factors that could cause our actual performance to be materially different from those we project.
Our actual results may be different due to the inherent nature of projections and may be better or worse than projected. Given these uncertainties, you should not rely on forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements also represent our estimates and assumptions only as of the date that they initially were made. We expressly disclaim a duty to provide updates to any forward-looking statements, and the estimates and assumptions associated with them, to reflect events or circumstances or changes in expectations or the occurrence of anticipated events after the date they initially were made.
In addition to the factors set forth in our Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the following factors could affect the forward-looking statements: the ability to achieve or quantify savings for our customers or ourselves through our global cost-cutting program and other financial management programs; the ability to obtain, or the timing of obtaining, future government awards and contracts; the availability of government funding and customer requirements; changes in government priorities due to program reviews or revisions to strategic objectives; difficulties in developing and producing operationally advanced technology systems; the competitive environment; economic, business and political conditions domestically and internationally; the timing and customer acceptance of product deliveries and launches; the outcome of contingencies, including litigation, environmental remediation, program performance, and completion of any acquisitions and divestitures. These are only some of the numerous factors which may affect the forward-looking statements contained on our Web Site.
