YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING AND MAINTAINING ALL TELEPHONE, COMPUTER HARDWARE AND OTHER EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO ACCESS AND USE THE SITE, AND ALL CHARGES RELATED THERETO.

YOUR USE OF THE SITE AND ANY MATERIALS PROVIDED THROUGH THE SITE ARE ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

You acknowledge that the Site could include inaccuracies or errors, or materials that violate these Terms of Use (specifically, the "Code of Conduct" section). Additionally, you acknowledge that unauthorized additions, deletions and alterations could be made by third parties to the Site. Although the Company attempts to ensure the integrity and the accuracy of the Site, it makes no guarantees whatsoever as to the Site's completeness or correctness. In the event that such a situation arises, please contact us at support@biospace.com with, if possible, a description of the material to be checked and the location (URL) where such material can be found on the Site, as well as information sufficient to enable us to contact you. We will try to address your concerns as soon as reasonably practicable. For copyright infringement claims, see the section on "Claims of Copyright Infringement."

The Site is only a venue allowing for the posting by employers, recruiters and staffing agencies of available job opportunities at their companies or companies they represent (hereinafter referred to collectively as "employers") and by candidates of their own resumes. The Company does not evaluate or censor the resumes, job listings or other information posted to the Site. Moreover, the Company is not involved in the actual transaction, if any, between potential employers and candidates. Consequently, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the job listings or resumes posted to the Site, the truth or accuracy of such job listings or resumes, the ability of employers to hire candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings.

Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, the Company cannot and does not confirm that users are who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in user-to-user transactions or control the behavior of the Site's users, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Site users, you release the Company (and its subsidiaries, affiliates, agents and employees) from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of any kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. You acknowledge that there may be certain risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm and of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses, associated with pursuing relationships begun on the Internet. You assume all risks related to dealing with other users with whom you have had contact through the Site.

You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for the form, content and accuracy of any resume, job listing or other material you post to the Site. The Company neither warrants nor guarantees that a resume or job posting will be viewed by any specific number of users, or that a resume or job listing will be viewed by any user. We are not to be considered as an employer with respect to your use of the Site and we shall not be responsible for any employment decisions made by any entity posting job listings or resumes to the Site.

Claims of Copyright Infringement

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you have a good faith belief that materials hosted by us infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly being infringed upon; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed upon (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to DHI Group, Inc., 1040 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10018, (tel) 212-725-6550, (fax) 212-725-9127, Attention: Vice President & General Counsel. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

Miscellaneous

This Agreement is entered into in the State of New York and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, exclusive of its choice of law rules. Each party to this Agreement hereby submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the County of New York in the State of New York for any dispute arising under or in connection with this Agreement, the Site or any Site-related services, and waives any jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum objections to such courts. In any action to enforce this Agreement, the prevailing party will be entitled to costs and attorneys' fees. In the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Failure of any party to insist upon strict compliance with any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver or relinquishment of any similar right or power at any subsequent time.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto pertaining to the subject matter hereof, and any and all written or oral agreements heretofore existing between the parties hereto are expressly canceled. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sub-licensable by you except with prior written consent.

Additional Terms for Use of Additional Services

If you utilize the BioSpace Hotbed Campaign or Career Fairs service(s), these additional terms apply to those services:,

CareerFairs
1. You (the "Exhibitor") agree to rent the total number of booths set forth on the order form for the event indicated. The Exhibitor has no right to assign or sublet such space without the prior written consent of BioSpace. No refunds or transfers permitted.

2. All booth spaces are in units of 8' x 10', unless otherwise noted. Exhibitors renting booth space(s) with furnishings will receive 6' draped table, chairs and a sign indicating the Exhibitor's name. All booth space(s) include 36" side rails and an 8' backwall, unless Exhibitor informs BioSpace to the contrary. Note that some booth configurations do not require side and/or back wall drapery (island and peninsula style). Upon request, BioSpace shall provide Exhibitor with the name of an exhibit services contractor prepared to furnish additional materials and services. BioSpace assumes no liability or responsibility in connection with the services or materials provided by such exhibit services contractor. Any display Exhibitor brings to the booth shall not block air or light flow, shall not be over 8' in height and shall not have display sidewalls extending more than 4' from the back of the booth (to a maximum height of 36"), unless prior written approval is received from BioSpace. Exhibitor acknowledges that, pursuant to the theme of the exhibition, it shall use the booth space only for the purpose of recruiting, and therefor shall only display the products or services provided by their company consistent with the theme of the exhibition. All displays must remain within the booth perimeters and not intrude upon the aisles. Although BioSpace shall use its best efforts to offer Exhibitor the location(s) requested, BioSpace reserves the right to alter the event layout and booth arrangement to a design that may differ from illustrations in marketing literature or announced floor plans, and further reserves the right to re-assign Exhibitor's booth location hours and the number of days or the dates of the exhibition.

3. Payment for the booth fee must be made with the application. All sums paid to BioSpace are non-refundable and shall be retained by BioSpace. Exhibitor specifically agrees that it is legally obligated to remit to BioSpace any unpaid balance for the booth space(s) after retention by BioSpace of any amounts paid. In the event of cancellations, BIOSPACE shall have the right to rent the booth space to another party. However, any rental fees received by such re-rental shall not accrue to the Exhibitor's benefit or reduce its liability hereunder.

4. Exhibitor shall set up its booth at the designated set-up time (and under no circumstances not later than two (2) hours prior to the opening of the event), shall adequately staff its booth during all event hours, and shall not disassemble or close its booth until after the event has closed to the public on the last day of the exhibition. In the case that Exhibitor's display or materials fail to arrive in time for the event, Exhibitor remains responsible for the payment of the booth space, or other fees payable.

5. If, due to circumstances beyond its control, BioSpace is prevented from holding the event or if it cannot permit Exhibitor to occupy booth space, BioSpace reserves the right to alter the location and/or date of the event with reasonable notice provided to the Exhibitor, without a refund to Exhibitor. BioSpace has the right to cancel the event with no further liability other than a refund of the booth rental fee paid, which shall be Exhibitor's sole and exclusive remedy. Under no circumstances shall BioSpace be liable to Exhibitor for incidental or consequential damages.

6. BioSpace shall provide commercially reasonable security. However, the Exhibitor is solely and fully responsible for its own exhibit materials and personal items, and should obtain insurance at its own expense. BioSpace is not responsible for damage to the exhibits, whether by fire, theft, accident or any other cause, or for any other injury which Exhibitor, its property, employees, guests and invitees may suffer. BioSpace is not responsible for damage to personal items brought to any career reception, whether by fire, theft, accident or any other cause.

7. Exhibitor grants permission to BioSpace to use Exhibitor's name and/or logos for promotional purposes in connection with the event or other events produced by BioSpace. This permission shall extend to photographs of Exhibitor's booth. BioSpace shall promote the events in such manner and through such media at its sole discretion and may alter the nature, content and manner of its promotion to meet the needs of a particular market or of the location in which the exhibition takes place.

8. Exhibitor agrees to comply with the reasonable requests of BioSpace, their agents and employees. Exhibitor further agrees that it shall observe the general rules and regulations of the exhibit hall at which the event is held.

9. Exhibitor assumes full responsibility and liability for the actions of its agents, employees or independent contractor, whether acting within or without the scope of their authority, and agrees to indemnify and hold BioSpace and the exhibit hall harmless from and against responsibility or liability resulting directly or indirectly, or jointly, from the acts or omissions of its agents, employees or independent contractors, whether acting within or without the scope of their authority.

Hotbeds
1. The price for any Hotbeds service shall be the price stated on the order form. The prices stated are exclusive of any taxes, fees, duties, licenses or levies ("Taxes") now or hereinafter imposed upon the Product or Service.

2. PAYMENT IS DUE IN FULL PRIOR TO BIOSPACE SENDING THE MATERIALS TO PRINT. You will be responsible for the price of all services substantially conforming to your signed order form, notwithstanding that you may not have accepted, or may have revoked acceptance, of same.

3. You shall have the right to terminate an order form for convenience up to eight (8) weeks prior to scheduled event by written notice. In the event of such termination, you shall promptly comply with the termination charges as outlined below. BioSpace reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change or cancel the media campaign and the content of such thereof as per the needs and/or convenience of BioSpace. In the case of cancellation, BioSpace will fully refund any fees paid directly toward that media campaign. BioSpace also reserves the right to suspend, cancel, or postpone any media campaign in the event of unavoidable occurrences (e.g., fire, earthquake, etc.).

4. You represent that you own or have all rights necessary to transmit the required materials for participation in any media campaign ("Content") to BioSpace. Furthermore, you hereby grant BioSpace a perpetual license to use the Content in its community homepage and Hotbed print and electronic materials.

5. A non-refundable fee of $2,250.00 USD will be assessed for any cancellation that is at least eight (8) weeks prior to scheduled event and map campaign.
