TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR USE OF SOLAR VIEWER
Please read these Instructions for Use carefully before using the Solar Viewer. Your purchase and use of the Solar Viewer constitutes your agreement to these terms and conditions. Failure to follow these Instructions for Use may result in serious personal injury, including permanent eye damage. If you do not understand these Instructions or cannot follow them diligently and completely, then you should not look at the Sun at any time, with or without a Solar Viewer.
The term “Solar Viewer” refers to the special cardboard-and-polymer optical products, marked “SAFE FOR DIRECT SOLAR VIEWING”, manufactured by Rainbow Symphony of Reseda CA, and sold by Eclipse2017.org for the purpose of viewing the Sun during the solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, by or under the direct supervision of a person 18 years of age or above and in accordance with these Instructions for Use.

Observing the Sun directly, without the
benefit of eye protection provided by the Solar Viewer, will likely result in
serious personal injury, up to and including permanent eye damage and
blindness. When these Instructions for Use are followed completely and precisely, the undamaged and unmodified Solar
Viewer has been proven to be safe and effective in allowing direct, short-term,
viewing of the Sun. If these
Instructions for Use are not followed, or if damaged or modified Solar Viewers
are used, permanent eye injury could result.
You should never look directly at the Sun, with or without the aid of the Solar Viewer, if you have any temporary or permanent medical or other condition which either (1) prevents your use of the Solar Viewer according to these Instructions for Use , or (2) which predisposes you to an increased or special risk of incurring, worsening, or contributing to the effects of any optical or other medical, health, or other condition, by looking or attempting to look at the Sun.
You should never attempt to perform any other activity (such as driving or walking) while using the Solar Viewer.
