CHANGES TO THE TERMS OF SERVICE AND THE WEBSITE

Seekhana is constantly evolving, and we reserve the right to update the Website and these Terms of Service at our discretion. We will make sure to announce any major change. Your continued use of the Website following the publishing of updated Terms of Service means that you accept and agree to the changes.
