1.2 All prices shown on any price list or contained in any user agreement are subject to change without prior notice, and are exclusive of any applicable VAT (which will be added at current rates).

2. Intellectual Property

2.1 All intellectual property in the Service (including but not limited to copyright, database extraction rights, trade mark rights) remains in the ownership of Orecor and its licensors. Nothing in these terms of use is intended to transfer any interest in such intellectual property to the Buyer. The Buyer is expressly prohibited from copying any part of the Service (including its outputs) except to the extent necessary to receive the Service.

3. Limitation of Liability

In no event will Orecor or its directors, agents or employees be liable to the Buyer or anyone else for any decision made or action taken in reliance on the Service.

4. Service Access

4.2 By administering and initiating assessments, Authorised Users may grant Candidates authorisation to access the Service solely for the purpose of undergoing assessments. Where the Service is provided in exchange for Credits, the relevant number of Credits will be deducted from the Buyer’s account.

4.3 Orecor shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Service is available at all times, but does not guarantee 24/7 uptime and occasional downtime for maintenance is inevitable.
