Content of Communities The Communities are intended to be an interactive online opportunity for knowledge sharing. Because users post content and respond to one another, the content is not controlled or endorsed by SCIEX. While we expect users to submit content that meets the guidelines set out below, it is possible that content submitted does not. Accordingly, SCIEX does not guarantee the accuracy or quality of content submitted by users. While SCIEX has the right to refuse to post, or remove any content, it is under no obligation to do so. Therefore, you may be exposed to offensive or objectionable content and SCIEX shall not be responsible nor liable for that.
The SCIEX products featured in the Communities are for Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures. Any materials submitted containing discussions of unapproved uses will be removed or not posted. SCIEX welcomes all questions and comments and will respond to users as soon as possible.
Conduct on the Site By registering for, and in consideration of your use of, the Communities you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information. You are responsible for protecting your password. You agree that you will be responsible for any and all statements made, and acts or omissions that occur, through the use of your password. If you have any reason to believe or become aware of any loss, theft or unauthorized use of your password, notify SCIEX immediately. SCIEX assumes that any communications received under your password have been made by you unless you notify us otherwise.
You or third parties acting on your behalf are not allowed to frame the Communities or use our proprietary marks as meta tags, without our written consent. You may not use frames or utilize framing techniques or technology to enclose any content included on the Communities without SCIEX's express written consent. Further, you may not utilize any Communities content in any meta tags or any other "hidden text" techniques or technologies without SCIEX's express written consent.
Materials You Submit You acknowledge that you are at least 18 years old and are responsible for any material you may submit via the Communities, including the legality, reliability, appropriateness, originality and copyright of any such material. You may not upload to, distribute or otherwise publish through the Communities any content that (i) is confidential, proprietary, false, inaccurate, misleading, irrelevant, fraudulent, libelous, defamatory, obscene, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, infringing on intellectual property rights, abusive, illegal or otherwise objectionable; (ii) may constitute or encourage a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party or otherwise give rise to liability or violate any law; (iii) for which you were compensated in cash or in kind by any third party; or (iv) may contain software viruses, political campaigning, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of "spam." You may not use a false email address or other identifying information, impersonate any person or entity or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any content. You may not upload commercial content onto the Site.
If you do submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant SCIEX and/or its relevant contract party, as appropriate, an unrestricted, nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute and display such material throughout the world in any media. You further agree that SCIEX and/or its relevant contracting party, as appropriate, is free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how that you or individuals acting on your behalf provide to SCIEX. You grant SCIEX the right to use the name you submit in connection with such material, if they so choose. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all the rights to the content you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate any provision herein and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify SCIEX for all claims resulting from content you supply.
SCIEX reserves the right to remove or refuse to post any content you have submitted for any reason. While SCIEX has the right to monitor activity, we are not obligated to do so.
Links The Communities may contain links to other websites, some of which are operated by SCIEX and others of which are operated by third parties. These links are provided as a convenience to you and as an additional avenue of access to the information contained therein. We have not necessarily reviewed all the information on those other sites and are not responsible for the content of those or any other sites or any products or services that may be offered through those or any other sites. Inclusion of links to other sites should not be viewed as an endorsement of the content of linked sites. Different terms and conditions may apply to your use of any linked sites. SCIEX is not responsible for any losses, damages or other liabilities incurred as a result of your use of any linked sites.
