Your user content must be appropriate, civil, tasteful and in accord with generally accepted standards of etiquette and behavior on the internet. You must not use our website to link to any website or web page containing material that would, were it posted on our website or social media channels, breach the provision of these terms.

Without prejudice to our other rights under the terms of use, if you breach these terms of use in any way, or if we reasonably suspect that you have breached these terms of use in any way, CMB Clinical Trials may:

  • Send you one or more formal warnings;

  • Temporarily suspend your access to the website and social media channels;

  • Permanently prohibit you from accessing the website or social media channels;

  • Block computers using your IP address from accessing the website;

  • Contact your internet services provider and request that they block your access to the website and social media channel;

  • Bring court proceedings against you for breach of contract or otherwise;

  • Suspend and delete your account with the website; and

  • Delete and edit any or all of your user-generated content.

Where we suspend or prohibit or block your access to our website or a part of our website, you must not take any action to circumvent such suspension or prohibition or blocking (including without limitation creating and using a different account).


You acknowledge that users submit some of the information published on our websites or social media channels and that we do not usually review, approve, or edit such information. We do not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the information published, nor do we commit to ensuring that the website or media channels remain available or that the content is kept up to date.


You accept that we have an interest in limiting the personal liability of our officers and employees and you accept that we are a limited liability entity and agree that you shall not bring any claim personally against individual officers or employees in respect of any losses you suffer in connection with the website or CMB Clinical Trials media channels or these terms. It may not limit or exclude the liability of CMB Clinical Trials for the acts and omissions of our officers and employees.

Please note that if you post an untrue statement onto a website about another person, you could be liable for defamation. A statement is defamatory if it tends to lower the claimant in the estimation of right-thinking members of society generally. If such a statement is made, it is not just the maker of that statement who is potentially liable; any ‘publisher’ of the statement and anyone exercising ‘editorial control’ over the statement could also be liable. Therefore, this could include the owner of a website, a forum host (with editing rights), or a Re-tweeter (that is a tweet which another person on twitter re-issues on their twitter account) and consequently in using CMB Clinical Trials websites and social media channels you agree to indemnify and hold harmless CMB Clinical Trials and their agents with respect of any claim based on transmission of your message(s) and further to the Terms of Use section within this Notice.


Where we choose to remove or not publish a comment for whatever reason, we may refer to our moderation policy. It is not about censoring users’ views, and the aim is to ensure that comments relate to the particular subject Tbeing discussed. We do not moderate comments to suppress legitimate and reasoned discussion.

CMB Clinical Trials reserves the right to not respond to comments at any time. The main reason we may not respond to comments is that we want to ensure discussions are relevant and topical and to ensure this, we generally do not respond to comments whenever the discussion strays too far off-topic. It also enables us to be more effectively involved in all current conversations.


If CMB Clinical Trials is concerned that a comment posted by a member of the public is inaccurate, unfair or even unlawful, then we may request that the owner of the relevant website, forum or group, removes the comment. Alternatively, we may comment publically to counteract the inappropriate comment or chose to contact the person who posted the comment and deal directly with their concerns.
