MLSC’s Liability
The International Partnership Assistance Portal acts as a venue for international life sciences companies seeking partners in Massachusetts, and for Massachusetts companies to find partners worldwide. MLSC does not screen or censor the listings. MLSC is not involved in the actual transaction between companies seeking partners. As a result, MLSC has no control over the quality, truth or accuracy of the information and/or data posted, the ability of potential partners to find partnering opportunities and MLSC makes no representations about any information and/or data on the International Partnership Assistance Portal. While MLSC reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove information, data and/or other material from the International Partnership Assistance Portal from time to time, MLSC does not assume any obligation to do so and disclaims any liability for failing to take any such action.
MLSC is not to be considered to be an agent or broker with respect to any company’s use of any MLSC site and MLSC shall not be responsible for any decisions, for whatever reason, made by any company desiring to partner with another company whose information and/or data is posted on the MLSC’s International Partnership Assistance Portal.
MLSC cannot guarantee and does not promise any specific results from use of the International Partnership Assistance Portal or any MLSC site. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by a company from MLSC or through or from the International Partnership Assistance Portal or any other MLSC site shall create any implied or express warranty. In no event shall MLSC be liable for any damages whatsoever resulting from the use of this site, or for any harm to companies resulting from posting information and/or data on the MLSC’s site or from participating in the MLSC’s International Partnership Assistance Portal, or to companies from reviewing other company information and/or data or entering into a partnership with another company as a result of participating in the MLSC’s International Partnership Assistance Portal.
