Which country's laws apply to any disputes?
Any dispute that is not resolved by the parties by informal dispute resolution shall, upon the submission of a written request of either party to the other party, be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration conducted in accordance with the rules of arbitration of the American Arbitration Association for commercial disputes (the “Rules”), except to the extent that such Rules are inconsistent with these terms. The arbitration decision shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties, shall be final, and shall be fully and irrevocably accepted by the parties. The prevailing party may enforce such decision against the other party in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitration shall take place in Massachusetts and shall be conducted in the English language. The parties agree that they shall share equally the cost of the arbitration filing and hearing fees, and the cost of the arbitrator(s). Each party shall bear its own attorneys’ and expert fees and all associated costs and expenses.
Our trademarks are registered
BiofourmisTM, BiovotialsTM, and EverionTM are our trademarks. You are not permitted to use them without our approval.
We follow a secure policy for recruiting. All contact with prospective candidates are made from biofourmis.com email addresses. We do not solicit personally identifiable information such as Social Security numbers or National Identification Numbers, either directly or through requests for employment forms, via email. No financial transaction is conducted over email. We also implement a best practice of multiple in-person interviews or, when that is not possible, then with video conferencing, before making offers.
If you have received a job offer that is purportedly from us without any in-person or video conferencing interviews or have been asked to pay any amounts of money in advance to the company, that is likely to be a fraudulent phishing exercise. Please report the incident to the relevant authorities and notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
