Construction Bulletin Terms of Use       Last updated 05/29/2012
This site (the "Site") is operated by Construction Bulletin and its affiliates (collectively, "Construction Bulletin " or "CBIDS"). By accessing or using this Site (or any part thereof), you agree to be legally bound by the terms and conditions that follow (the "Terms of Use") as we may modify them from time to time. These Terms of Use apply to your use of this Site, including the Construction Bulletin services offered via the Site. They constitute a legal contract between you and Construction Bulletin, and by accessing or using any part of the Site you represent and warrant that you have the right, power and authority to agree to and be bound by these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to the Terms of Use, or if you do not have the right, power, and authority to agree to and be bound by these Terms of Use, you may not use the Site. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if you and Construction Bulletin have entered into a separate written agreement that covers your use of a Construction Bulletin service, the terms and conditions of such agreement shall control with respect to such service to the extent they are inconsistent with these Terms of Use.

Purpose of Site
The Site is designed to provide information about construction opportunities, bids and related data. The information and services offered on or through this Site are provided solely for general business information, do not constitute agreements, acceptance of bids, legal, or any other professional advice, or an offer to purchase, sell or lease real estate, and may not be used for personal, family or household purposes.

Services
The information, data, text, documents, plans, software, photographs, images, graphics, organization, layout, design, and other content contained on or provided through this Site (collectively, the "Content") are proprietary to Construction Bulletin and its licensors, and are protected by copyright and other U.S. and international intellectual property rights, laws and treaties. The Content includes proprietary databases (the "Database") of construction data and related information, which, by way of example, include information, text, photographic and other documents and data contained therein (collectively, the "Information") and the proprietary organization and structures for categorizing, sorting and displaying such Information, and the related software ("Software"). The Site, Content, Database, Information, Software and any portion of the foregoing, including any derivatives, successors, updates or modifications provided thereto and any information derived from the use of the Database, including as a result of the verification of any portion of the Information, are collectively referred to herein as the "Product".

Those portions of the Product that may be accessed by the general public and that do not require any use of Passcodes (as defined below) are referred to as the "Non-Passcode Protected Product". Those portions of the Product that require use of Passcodes for access and are available only to individuals or entities ("Construction Bulletin Clients"), or those acting through them, who enter into a License Agreement (as defined below) with Construction Bulletin that authorizes access to such Construction Bulletin data and content are referred to as the "Passcode Protected Product".

The Passcode Protected Product includes, for example, the Construction Bulletin Project Database services. A "License Agreement" is defined as either (i) a written hand-signed contract between a Construction Bulletin Client and Construction Bulletin that authorizes access to a Construction Bulletin service, or (ii) an online contract between the Construction Bulletin Client and Construction Bulletin that is formed by online registration and acceptance of these Terms of Use and that authorizes access to a Construction Bulletin service.

Only Authorized Users for a Passcode Protected Product may access such product and they may access it solely using the user name, password (collectively, the "Passcodes") assigned to such user by Construction Bulletin. No Authorized User may share his/her Passcodes with any other person, nor may an Authorized User allow any other person to use or have access to his/her Passcodes. An Authorized User is defined as an individual (a) employed by a Construction Bulletin Client or an Independent Contractor (as defined below) of a Construction Bulletin Client at a site identified in the License Agreement, and (b) who is specified in the License Agreement as a user of a specific Passcode-Protected Product. An "Independent Contractor" is defined as an individual person working solely for the Construction Bulletin Client and not another company with construction information needs and performing substantially the same services for such Construction Bulletin Client as an employee of such Construction Bulletin Client.

Except to the extent specifically authorized in writing by Construction Bulletin , you cannot share or sell the Construction Bulletin Materials and you are responsible to Construction Bulletin for any use of it. You agree and warrant that: a) you will not provide access to any portion of the Construction Bulletin Materials to any unauthorized party without the prior written consent of Construction Bulletin; b) you shall use your best efforts to prevent the misuse and unauthorized use of the Construction Bulletin Materials; c) you will not use any Construction Bulletin Materials for consumer credit purposes, consumer insurance underwriting, employment purposes, tenant screening purposes, or for any other purpose(s) covered by the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C. 1681 et seq.) or any similar statute or regulation; c) you shall not name Construction Bulletin or its affiliated companies or refer to the use of Construction Bulletin Materials in any advertisements, promotional or marketing material; and d) you shall indemnify and hold harmless Construction Bulletin, its affiliated companies and their respective officers, employees and agents ("Indemnified Parties") against any loss, liability, damage, cost or expense (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees and legal costs) suffered or incurred by any Indemnified Party, arising out of or in any way related to your use of the Construction Bulletin Materials or the breach of this Agreement.

Free Trial Access
From time to time, in Construction Bulletins sole discretion, Construction Bulletin may offer a free trial period ("Free Trial Access") to certain individuals ("Free Trial Access Participant") chosen by Construction Bulletin to participate in the free trial access. Unless terminated sooner by Construction Bulletin, the Free Trial Access shall last for the length of time specified in the email from Construction Bulletin that distributes Passcodes to the Free Trial Access Participant. The terms set forth in that email, combined with these Terms of Use, shall constitute a License Agreement between Construction Bulletin and the Free Trial Access Participant relating to such individual's access to and use of the associated Passcode Protected Product being offered through the Free Access Trial. During the Free Trial Access the Free Trial Access Participant shall be considered an Authorized User and a Construction Bulletin Client (as defined in these Terms of Use) and may use the Passcode Protected Product during the Free Trial Access subject to and solely in accordance with the terms outlined in such License Agreement relating to the Free Trial Access (which includes these Terms of Use).
