Last Updated:  12/15/2014

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) for the websites of Sealed Air Corporation and its subsidiaries (“Sealed Air”, “we”, “our”) that link to these Terms (the “Sites”) govern the relationship between you and Sealed Air in connection with the Sites.  By accessing or using the Sites, you agree to these Terms.  If you do not agree to these Terms, your use of the Sites is unauthorized.

We may propose an update to these Terms at any time in our sole discretion by posting the updated version at a location hyperlinked from the home page of the Sites.  The update will come into effect 10 days after the date of its posting (i.e., 10 days after the “Last Updated” date at the top of the Terms), unless we choose to secure your immediate acceptance of revised Terms via a click-through confirmation, acceptance button or other mechanism.  To reject the proposed update, you must send us an email to benjamin.pollack@sealedair.com with the word “rejection” in the subject line within the 10-day period described above; you must send this from the email address you used to register for our Sites, if any, and you must include your name, company name (if applicable) and address.  This rejection will immediately terminate your permission to use the Sites, and you must immediately cease all such use; we may then deactivate your account on the Sites (if applicable) without further notice to you.  Unless you obtain our written waiver, your use of the Sites after sending such a rejection shall be deemed your unconditional acceptance of the revised Terms that we posted, and it shall also be deemed a breach of such Terms, as your permission to use the Service will have terminated.

Pricing Information.  You acknowledge that the pricing information provided through the use of the Sites is intended for the use solely by you and is confidential to Sealed Air. You agree not to share such pricing information with any other party without the written consent of Sealed Air.
