This obligation is a condition of employment or a relationship with CIMRO.
Please understand that you are conclusively deemed to have ratified your certification and acceptance unless, within 10 business days of the date hereof, you withdraw that certification and acceptance by written notice received by CIMRO within that 10 day period.
