No other right or license is granted to Customer, explicitly, by implication, by estoppel or otherwise. Product is not submitted for regulatory review, validated for diagnostic, prophylactic, therapeutic, or clinical use, safety and effectiveness, or any other specific use or application unless expressly stated in the Technical Data Sheet. Customer is solely responsible for proper selection, application, processing and use of Product (including incorporation of Product into other product or modification of Product), and for adopting safety precautions as may be necessary. Customer is solely responsible for complying with, and shall handle and use Product and the results of using Product in conformity with (1) good laboratory practice, (2) all applicable laws, regulations and governmental policies, and (3) any necessary approvals, permissions, authorizations and/or licenses as may be required for Customer’s research and other intended uses, including any rights to use intellectual property rights of a third party.

As a material condition to BETHYL providing its Product to Customer, Customer shall not, directly or indirectly, use the Product or its components (1) to modify Product or its components except for non-commercial in vitro INTERNAL RESEARCH USE (including animal studies in laboratory settings); (2) to provide a commercial service, or to provide commercially relevant information or data to a third party; (3) for diagnostic, prophylactic or therapeutic purposes; (4) for use on animals or humans for clinical diagnostic or drug purposes; (5) to attempt to reverse engineer, disassemble, or otherwise perform any compositional, structural, functional or other analyses directed to learning the methodology, components, formulae, sequence, processes, make-up, or production of any Product or any portion thereof; (6) for manufacturing; (7) for resale or transfer in any form to a third party; or (8) for any other commercial purpose.

Intellectual Property

Customer acknowledges that all intellectual property rights (patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret or otherwise) relating to Product and Technical Data Sheets, as between Customer and BETHYL, are solely and exclusively owned by BETHYL. BETHYL’s sale or transfer of Product to Customer grants to Customer a limited non-transferable right (i) to use as authorized by these Terms the quantity of Product purchased under an Agreement, and (ii) to use the applicable Technical Data Sheet and content contained therein (e.g., protocols, validation data and images) for Customer’s authorized use of the Product. Except as expressly permitted by these Terms sale or transfer of Product to Customer does not grant Customer any other license rights to BETHYL’s intellectual property, including, without limitation, no right to make or have made any Product or any portion thereof, and no right to reproduce, display, redistribute copies, create derivative works or otherwise use the Technical Data Sheets and content thereof. Any use of Product for diagnostic, prophylactic or therapeutic purposes, or any purchase of Product for resale (alone or as a component) or other commercial purpose, requires a separate license from BETHYL. It is Customer’s sole responsibility to secure any required intellectual property rights.

Bethyl Laboratories may assign or transfer its rights with regard to your account and these Terms & Conditions.
