** NOTE: Included below are definitions for defined terms (generally signified by a word’s capitalization, not otherwise required by the context) used within a Stego document, but not otherwise defined therein. If any defined term is defined with any variation in a specific document, the definition included within that specific document applies to the exclusion of the definition included below.

“Affiliates” means any entity, now or in the future, directly or indirectly owned by, owning, controlled by, or under common control with (including, but not limited to, control through ownership, management, representation, or other close relationships, associations, or interactions) Stego Industries, LLC.
"Certify" or “Certificate of Completion” subsequent to a Site Review or installation training, written or verbal communication from a Stego Industries, LLC authorized representative that the Site Review or installation training yielded a determination and/or training consistent with ASTM E1643, Stego’s Installation Instructions, and/or, if applicable, the design team’s recommendations (e.g. Contract Documents), only. Note, Stego Industries, LLC does not employ design professionals or certified inspectors and, thus, a Site Review or installation training shall not be interpreted as a replacement for either a project design professional or certified inspector, as necessary.
"Conceptual Field Illustrations" are drawings prepared by Stego Industries, LLC and intended to illustrate potential installation or repair details. These illustrations are not design documents and must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate design professional prior to utilization. Likewise, in no way do these illustrations waive the requirements of the Contract Documents or supersede local code requirements. A Conceptual Field Illustration that does not comply with the applicable version of ASTM E1643 and the installation instructions of the products under consideration, by definition, is not a Stego recommendation; rather, it is merely an example of a potential way to complete the work.
"Green" means National Green Building Standard (NGBS) certified product.
"Made in the USA" means all significant parts and processing that went into the product are of US origin and thereby the product was made all or virtually all in the United States. Please note, most products sold by Stego are compliant with FTC, ARRA, FTA and FAA standards, but if you have a question pertaining to a specific product’s compliance with a particular standard, please contact Stego.
"Made in the USA with US and global materials" means most of the significant parts and processing that went into the product are of US origin but the product also contains more than a negligible amount of foreign content. If you have a question pertaining to a specific product's compliance with a particular standard, please contact Stego.
"Non-Chemical" means (a) not a chemical soil treatment; (b) not an insecticide/pesticide and thus will not prevent, destroy or repel pests; and (c) as a physical barrier product, excludes termites by physical means only.

"Safer Alternative to Pesticides" means Pango Wrap does not use insecticides/pesticides and is safe to handle, therefore it is a Safer Alternative to Pesticides, which do utilize chemicals for their efficacy. Note, insecticides/pesticides typically use various chemicals which can be harmful to both the intended pests but also anything in the environment that they come into contact with.
"Safe for Children and Pets" means not harmful when contacted within the scope of intended use by children and/or pets. Like all plastics, Pango Wrap should not be consumed, nor is it a toy.

Site Reviews are not a full site inspection.
"System" refers to the utilization of multiple Stego products (not including any products within the Pango line) that, when used in concert with one another, in accordance with Stego’s instructions and recommendations, work together as designed. Product performance, safety, efficiency, effectivity and other outcomes are predicated on the appropriate use of System components and their proper installation.
