No endorsements by PMI or warranty with respect to any user or third party, whether in regards to its Website, products, services, hiring, experience, employment or recruiting practices, or otherwise.

Without limiting the foregoing, by uploading materials to the Website or submitting any materials to Us, you automatically: (i) grant (or warrant that the owner of such rights has expressly granted) Us a perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, disclose, post, remove and/or distribute such materials or incorporate such materials into any form, medium, or technology now known or later developed throughout the universe (including, without limitation, on Law360 and in Law360 email newsletters); (ii)warrant that all so-called "moral rights" in those materials have been waived; and (iii)warrant to Us that such all such content complies in all ways with the provisions of these terms of use.

You are prohibited from posting or transmitting to or from the Website any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, confidential or other material that would violate any law, including without limitation, copyright, trademark, trade secret, or any rights of third parties. PMI may, but is not obligated to, monitor or review any areas on the Website where authorized users or others transmit or post communications. PMI will have no liability for the content of any postings or communications, whether or not arising under the laws of copyright, trademark, trade secret, libel, privacy, obscenity or otherwise.

The Website is only a venue allowing for the posting by employers and recruiting agencies of available job opportunities at their company or companies they represent (hereinafter referred to collectively as "employers" and "recruiters") and by candidates of their own resumes. The Company does not evaluate or censor the resumes, job listings or other information posted to the Website. Moreover, the Company is not involved in the actual transaction, if any, between potential employers and candidates. Consequently, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the job listings or resumes posted to the Website, the truth or accuracy of such job listings or resumes, the ability of employers to hire candidates or the ability of candidates to fill job openings.

Because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, the Company cannot and does not confirm that users are who they claim to be. Because we do not and cannot be involved in user-to-user transactions or control the behavior of the Website's users, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more Website users, you release PMI and any of its officers, directors, shareholders, employees, contractors, affiliates, agents or advertisers from all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, direct and indirect) of any kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes. You acknowledge that there may be certain risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm and of dealing with strangers, underage persons or people acting under false pretenses, associated with pursuing relationships begun on the Internet. You assume all risks related to dealing with other users with whom you have had contact through the Website.

Online Ordering
Authorized users may order certain products and services online for your convenience. PMI has implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

When you place an order online at PMI, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") protocol. SSL makes it difficult for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen while being transmitted. PMI uses a service company to process its credit card transactions.

PMI does not store your credit card information on this site or any sites that we power.
