This website contains links to third party websites. The linked sites are not under the control of Knowledge Must. Knowledge Must, its directors or employees are not responsible for the contents of any linked site or any link contained in a linked site. Knowledge Must provides these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply Knowledge Must's endorsement of the linked site. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved. The content of such third-party sites is the responsibility of the respective owners/providers. At the time third-party Web sites were linked to ours, we found no grounds whatsover of any likely contravention of the law. We shall promptly delete a link upon becoming aware that it violates the law.

Our responsibility as a service provider is limited to our own content on these web pages.  We are not obligated to monitor third party information provided or stored on our website. However, we shall promptly remove any content upon becoming aware that it violates the law. Our liability in such an instance shall commence at the time we become aware of the respective violation.

You are responsible for complying with the laws of the jurisdiction from which you are accessing this site and you agree that you will not access or use the information on this site in violation of such laws. Unless expressly stated otherwise herein, any information submitted by you through this site shall be deemed non-confidential and non-proprietary. You represent that you have the lawful right to submit such information and agree that you will not submit any information unless you are legally entitled to do so.

Knowledge Must does not accept unauthorised idea submissions outside of established business relationships. To protect the interests of our current clients and ourselves, we must treat the issue of such submissions with great care. Importantly, without a clear business relationship, Knowledge Must cannot and does not treat any such submissions in confidence. Accordingly, please do not communicate unauthorised idea submissions to Knowledge Must through this website.

Any ideas disclosed to Knowledge Must outside a pre-existing and documented confidential business relationship are not confidential and Knowledge Must may therefore develop, use and freely disclose or publish similar ideas without compensating you or accounting to you.

Knowledge Must will make every reasonable effort to return or destroy any unauthorised idea submissions without detailed review of them. However, if a review is necessary in Knowledge Must's sole discretion, it will be with the understanding that Knowledge Must assumes no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to Knowledge Must through this website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this stated policy.

Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data, such as e-mails, via the Internet, because it is impossible to safeguard completely against unauthorised access by third parties. Nevertheless, we shall safeguard your data, subject to this limitation. In particular, personal information will be transmitted via the Internet only if it does not infringe upon third-party rights, unless the respective party has given its prior consent in view of such security risks. Accordingly, as the website provider, we shall not be held liable for any damages incurred as a consequence of such security risks or for any related acts of omission on our part. We oppose the use of any available contact information by a third party for sending unsolicited advertisements. As the website provider, we reserve the express right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.

Should one of the above terms be or become invalid, the content and effect of the rest of the Terms of Use shall not be affected.
