I. RAVS USAGE TERMS (“RAVS Usage Terms”)

Through its Review and Verification Service and related programs and services (“RAVS”), ISN performs a variety of review and verification services related to contractor and supplier data. RAVS review and verification results are provided for informational purposes only, and are not intended, and should not be relied upon, as a substitute for professional advice or independent due diligence.

Through its Review and Verification Services (“RAVS”), ISN may perform reviews of the information and documentation provided or available to ISN (“Contractor Documentation”) relating to ISNetworld-subscribing contractors and suppliers (“Contractors”) and compare such Contractor Documentation against specified regulatory requirements and/or the specified requirements of ISNetworld-subscribing hiring clients and contractor-operators (collectively, “Hiring Clients”).

ISN offers RAVS to Hiring Clients to be utilized as a tool in reviewing the qualifications of potential Contractors. RAVS review and verification results are all provided as guidance to assist Hiring Clients in reviewing Contractors’ conformance with specified regulatory guidelines and/or Hiring Client requirements, but are not intended, and should not be used, to ensure conformance with such regulations or requirements. RAVS should be used as a tool only, and Hiring Clients use RAVS at their own risk. Each Hiring Client retains ultimate liability and responsibility for determining the actual conformance of Contractors with applicable Hiring Client and regulatory requirements, and for managing, evaluating, and approving Contractors to perform services for such Hiring Client. Furthermore, Contractors are solely responsible for ensuring full conformance with all applicable Hiring Client and governmental requirements. Hiring Clients and/or Contractors are urged to review details of results provided by RAVS and should contact ISN to report any concerns.

Each Contractor is solely responsible for any and all Contractor Documentation submitted to ISN by or on behalf of such Contractor. By submitting Contractor Documentation into ISNetworld, a Contractor represents and warrants that (i) it owns or has the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and authorize ISN and its subscribers to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to such Contractor Documentation to enable inclusion and use of such Contractor Documentation in the manner contemplated by the website and ISN’s User Agreement (available at https://www.isnetworld.com/user-agreement), (ii) the use of such Contractor Documentation by ISN and its subscribers will not infringe or violate any proprietary rights, intellectual property rights and/or other rights of any third party, and (iii) it has obtained the consent or permission of each identifiable person in the Contractor Documentation to submit his or her data to ISN for use in connection with ISN’s services.
