For the following and remaining terms and provisions, "you" and "your" is

Ownership and Confidentiality

You acknowledge and agree that the Lezage Training Center ("LTC") is compiled, 
prepared, selected, and arranged by Lezage, L.L.C. ("Lezage") through the 
expenditure of substantial time, effort, and money and that it constitutes valuable 
property of Lezage, and that you shall refrain from sharing any information relative 
to LTC with any party other than a current client of your company that you 
reasonably believe is not a safety, health, and/or environmental publisher, service 
provider, or vendor, or otherwise a competitor of Lezage.

You acknowledge and agree that all proprietary rights in LTC shall remain the 
property of Lezage, and you further agree that all proprietary rights in the 
courseware, which constitute a part of LTC, remain the property of Business & 
Learning Resources, Inc. ("BLR"), or, and where indicated, Lezage.

You acknowledge and agree that LTC and all its components are copyrighted, and 
you shall take reasonable steps to safeguard against any copyright infringement by 
you or your clients.

This provision shall survive any termination of this Commercial License.

Scope of Use/Restrictions

You acknowledge and agree that LTC will only be used for the benefit of your 
company and its commercial clients, and that such use by your commercial clients 
is limited to training their employees (full, part-time, and temporary), and as such, 
and subject to the terms and conditions of this Commercial License and good and 
valuable consideration, Lezage grants your company a limited license to access and 
use LTC and to sublicense the foregoing license to your clients as provided herein.

You understand that Lezage will provide you with materials which can be used to 
promote, sell, and otherwise provide LTC to your clients, and you acknowledge and 
agree that any changes to these materials which do or may alter the accuracy of 
the materials must be pre-approved by Lezage.  All such alterations must be 
provided to for approval prior to use.

As a Commercial License holder, you may not, and you may not permit others to: 
(a) disassemble, decompile, alter, or otherwise derive content or source code from 
LTC; (b) use LTC in any manner that infringes the intellectual property or other 
rights of any party; (c) use LTC to prepare work products for any other party; (d) 
provide or sell access to LTC to any of your clients for use in a location outside the 
United States or Canada; (e) allow any client with 1,000 or more employees to use 
LTC without Lezage’s express permission and your payment of an additional license 
fee as determined at the sole discretion of Lezage; (f) alter, modify, customize, 
translate, or change in any fashion, the content, images, graphics, audio, video, 
text or code of any courseware within LTC, in part or in its entirety, without 
advance written permission from Lezage; and (g) you may not allow others to 
access LTC using your login credentials. 

This provision shall survive any termination of this Commercial License.


Due to the constantly changing nature of government regulations, it is impossible 
to guarantee the total and absolute accuracy of the material, courseware, etc. 
contained in the LTC service, and Lezage and BLR cannot and do not assume any 
responsibility for omissions, errors, misprinting, or ambiguity contained in the LTC 
service. Lezage and BLR shall not be held liable in any degree for any loss, damage, 
or injury caused by any such omission, error, misprinting, or ambiguity present in 
the LTC service. 

The LTC service is designed to provide reasonably accurate and authoritative 
information in regard to the subject matter covered.  It is made available with the 
understanding that neither Lezage nor BLR are engaged in rendering legal, 
accounting, or other professional service.  If legal advice or other expert service is 
required, the services of a competent professional should be sought. 

Limited warranty and limitation of liability

Lezage warrants that it has the authority to convey the rights which are the subject 
of this Commercial License.  As used below, Protected Parties means: (a) Lezage  
and BLR and their affiliates and any of their officers, directors, members, 
employees, subcontractors, agents, successors, or assigns.

LTC is provided on an "as is", "as available" basis. The Protected Parties expressly 
disclaim all other warranties, express or implied, including the implied warranties of 
merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. The Protected Parties shall not 
be liable for any loss, injury, claim, liability, or damage including, but not limited to, 
indirect, incidental, consequential, special, or exemplary damages of any kind 
resulting in any way from: any errors in or omissions from LTC or any materials 
available or not included therein, the unavailability or interruptions of LTC or any 
features thereof, your use of any equipment in connection with LTC, and the 
content of materials or any delay or failure in performance beyond the reasonable 
control of a Protected Party. 

If the foregoing limitations are held to be unenforceable, the Protected Parties' 
maximum liability to you, the Commercial License holder, shall not exceed the 
amount of the annual Commercial License fee you most recently paid to Lezage.  
The remedies available to you under this agreement are exclusive.  

Some states do not allow the limitations or exclusion of implied warranties, so 
these, or other exclusions, may not apply to you.

This provision shall survive any termination of this Commercial License.

become effective as of the announcement date.

*	Term. The term of this Commercial License is twelve (12) months. Should 
you choose to terminate this Commercial License, Lezage, in its sole discretion, will 
determine the amount of refund, if any, due to you. When the Commercial License 
terminates, or you do not renew the Commercial License, any information you or

License terms, is subject to payment of the annual Commercial License fee as 
determined by Lezage.  The amount of the first and any subsequent annual 
Commercial License fee will be established in Lezage’s sole discretion.   The 
Commercial License fee is based, in part, on an assumption that client usage will be 
approximately 10% of your commercial client count, and usage in excess of this 
figure may result in a fee increase. 

*   Notwithstanding any of the above: At Lezage's sole discretion, Lezage may 
terminate this Commercial License on ten (10) days notice (via email or otherwise) 
to you: (a) should LTC content or any component thereof no longer be available for 
whatever reason; (b) if Lezage believes you have violated the terms or abused the 
intent of this Commercial License, provided that Lezage has provided you notice of 
such violation and you have failed to cure the violation within thirty (30) days 
receipt of such notice; or (c) if you commit any fraud or material misrepresentation 
in any respect or manner, or (d) if BLR so directs. Termination under subsections 
(b), (c), and (d) does not entitle you to a refund of any Commercial License fees.  
In the event termination occurs under subsection (a), you shall receive a refund of 
any pre-paid fees prorated for the balance of the term.
