You understand and agree that Assessment Content and other non-public information about the Service is protected by copyright and other laws and includes Talent Insights’ trade secrets, and that unauthorized distribution, disclosure, or other use would (without limitation) (a) violate copyright, trade secret, and other laws, in addition to breaching this Terms of Use, (b) reduce or destroy Assessment Content’s validity, usefulness, and value, (c) cause Talent Insight’s substantial damage and irreparable injury for which monetary relief would not provide adequate compensation, and (d) subject you to potential legal liability.

 

Limitations, Exclusions,  Exceptions and Disclaimers

THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND AS AVAILABLE, AND TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, TALENT INSIGHTS, ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, THIRD-PARTY CONTENT OR SERVICE PROVIDERS, DISTRIBUTORS, DEALERS, AND SUPPLIERS (COLLECTIVELY “SUPPLIERS”) DISCLAIM ALL GUARANTEES AND WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, REGARDING THE SERVICE AND RELATED MATERIALS, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, OR ANY WARRANTY ARISING FROM STATUTE, COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE.

NEITHER TALENT INSIGHTS NOR ITS SUPPLIERS IS RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY OF THE FOLLOWING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS ToS OR YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE: (a) INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES; OR (b) DAMAGES OF ANY KIND IN EXCESS OF $1,000. THE LIABILITIES LIMITED BY THE PRECEDING SENTENCE APPLY: (i) TO LIABILITY FOR NEGLIGENCE; (ii) REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT PRODUCT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE; (iii) EVEN IF TALENT INSIGHTS IS ADVISED IN ADVANCE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE DAMAGES IN QUESTION AND EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES WERE FORESEEABLE; AND (iv) EVEN IF YOUR REMEDIES FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. If applicable law limits the application of the provisions of this Section 6, Talent Insights’ liability will be limited to the maximum extent permissible.

You recognize and agree that Talent Insights is not responsible or liable for any act of the Employer, including without limitation (a) any wrongful termination, discrimination in hiring, or other wrongdoing related to employment; (b) any Employer violation of applicable law, including without limitation, federal, state, and local employment and anti-discrimination laws and regulations; and (c) any Employer failure to protect your name, address, email address, other private or personally identifiable information, assessment or survey answers, or any other information about you (collectively, “Participant Data”). You recognize and agree that Talent Insights has no control over the Employer’s use of your Participant Data and that you should address issues related to such use with the Employer. In the event you have a disability for which you require reasonable accommodations for employment testing under applicable law, it is your responsibility to promptly notify the Employer, individual or other organization that has asked you to use the Service to request such accommodations and to send a copy of such notification to Talent Insights via email to support@talentinsights.com, Subject: Accommodations Request.

You understand and agree that regardless of assessment items or questions, the Assessments are not “Psychological Tests.” They are not being administered by a mental health professional, in a medical setting, for the purpose of providing a diagnosis for any mental or medical condition, and they are not designed or intended to be used as such.

You understand and agree that assessment results and reports are generated from your responses as the Participant to the assessment questions. The accuracy of those results is dependent on the Participant’s awareness and willingness to be honest about personal preferences, interests, and typical behavioral responses. Note that all assessments have been professionally developed and validated.

Note, the Personal and/or Executive MAP Reports should not be depended upon as the sole means of evaluating any candidate for any position within an organization. Such a decision should also take into consideration information received from the personal interview, background history, knowledge, skills and reference checks. The Talent Insights instrument is a tool which should be used in conjunction with other established hiring or management procedures.

Furthermore, the assessments utilized in the Talent Insights MAP process are not skill- or aptitude-based. Therefore, your participation also acknowledges that Talent Insights is not making recommendations based on the possession or lack of correlating skills or aptitudes deemed necessary for a specific position within an organization. Additionally, the MAP Indicator bar located in MAP Pro Executive Report simply illustrates how the participant’s natural internal wiring is likely to work for or against them in the opportunity being considered but does not indicate the presence or absence of other necessary skills required for a particular role.

Talent Insights representatives are trained to speak to a participant’s basic personal traits. No one can say for sure how a unique person will respond in any given situation, succeed or struggle in a particular role and/or career, or otherwise be guaranteed success/failure.

Therefore, it is understood that each participant and/or management team is solely responsible for acting on or rejecting any recommendations presented in the reports, interviews or consultations. Talent Insights, its staff, and/or representatives cannot be held liable for any losses, claims, damages, awards, penalties or injuries incurred as a result of any information presented, not presented or conjured as a result of the reports, interviews, or consultations.

Under no circumstances–including, but not limited to, negligence–shall Talent Insights, its staff, and/or representatives be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, Talent Insights services, third-party materials, or products made available through this purchase.

This Agreement shall be governed solely by the internal laws of the State of Texas without reference to any principle of conflicts of law that would apply the substantive laws of another jurisdiction to the parties’ rights or duties. The parties consent to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts of Fort Worth, TX.

Talent Insights may revise the Privacy Policy, the AUP, and the terms of this Terms of Use at any time by posting new versions thereof.

Customer may propose additional Confidential Information by providing a non-confidential written summary thereof, and such information will be Customer’s Confidential Information if Provider accepts in writing such proposed disclosure. Except as set forth in Subsection 5.1(e) above, Customer information disclosed without a summary and acceptance pursuant to the preceding sentence is not Customer’s Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information does not include information: (i) in the receiving party’s (“Recipient’s”) possession at the time of original disclosure, without obligation of confidentiality; (ii) independently developed by Recipient without use of or reference to the disclosing party’s (“Discloser’s”) Confidential information; or (iii) that becomes known publicly, before or after disclosure, other than as a result of Recipient’s improper action or inaction.

Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information to its Employees who need to know in order to facilitate the purpose of disclosure, provided each such Employee is subject to a reasonable non-disclosure agreement with Recipient. However, Recipient may disclose Discloser’s Confidential Information as required by applicable law or by proper legal or governmental authority, provided it gives Discloser advanced written notice reasonably sufficient to obtain a protective order or otherwise to contest such required disclosure and reasonably cooperates in any such effort. Recipient shall promptly notify Discloser in writing of any known misuse or misappropriation of Discloser’s Confidential Information. Upon termination of this Agreement or upon Discloser’s written request, Recipient shall return Discloser’s Confidential Information and certify, in writing, the destruction of any copies thereof.

Customer shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Talent Insights (including its officers, directors, Employees, agents, contractors, representatives, suppliers, subsidiaries, parents, affiliated companies, and insurers) from any Indemnified Claim. An “Indemnified Claim” is a third-party claim, suit, or proceeding arising out or related to Customer’s alleged or actual use of, misuse of, or failure to use the Service. Indemnified Claims include, without limitation: (a) claims by Users, including without limitation claims alleging wrongful termination, discrimination in hiring, violation of any rights relating to Customer-initiated background checks (including without limitation any claims under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act and any similar state and local laws), or other wrongdoing related to employment; (b) claims alleging breach of Customer’s obligations under Section 4.3; (c) claims alleging that TestMaker Tests, TestMaker Content, or other Customer-provided materials used with the Service infringe or violate intellectual property or privacy rights or defame or libel any person or entity; (d) claims alleging failures of the Service, including failures of the Service Obligation (as defined in Section 6.1), security breaches, and faults in the Service leading to the release or exposure of personally identifiable information or other private data (whether such data belongs to Customer, to a User, or to other third parties); and (e) claims arising from Provider’s alleged or actual negligence.

Injunctions. Each party agrees that breach of the provisions of Section’s Content Rights, Technology Restrictions or Non-Disclosure Obligations above would cause the injured irreparable injury for which monetary relief would not provide adequate compensation, and that in addition to any other remedies available, the injured will be entitled to preliminary, temporary, and permanent injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach, without the necessity of proving actual damages.

Construction. Neither party will be deemed to have waived any of its rights under this Agreement by lapse of time or by any statement or representation other than in an explicit written waiver signed such party.
