The Platform and Materials may contain forward-looking statements about companies, including assessments about business prospects and future results of operations. These statements involve risks and uncertainties. Among the important additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those forward-looking statements are risks associated with the overall economic environment, realization of customer contracts, strength of the Company's patents, validation of the technology, changes in anticipated earnings of the Company and other factors detailed in the Company's filings with various stock markets or contained in the Company's proprietary information. In addition, the factors underlying all forecasts are dynamic and subject to change and therefore any forecast published or reproduced by the Company is relevant only to the date at which it is made.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision will be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms of Use will continue in full force and effect.
