Control of licences and passwords.

The issuing, removal and regeneration of licences, user names and passwords is managed centrally by the NRC.

Liability.

The Jobscore system is operated via the internet. NRC has no control over the internet. The licencee indemnifies the NRC from any liability arising from any internet related event or internet related service provider action that impacts negatively on the licencees use of Jobscore. In any event the maximum liability the NRC will bear in respect of a licencees use of Jobscore will be the amount of the most recent Jobscore licence fee paid to the NRC by the licencee.

Backups.

NRC as a matter of routine makes a backup of all evaluations. Should there be a failure in any part of the internet system or by a related service provider that causes the loss of Jobscore evaluations resident on the system, then to the extent that NRC has maintained backups such lost evaluations will be restored. Nevertheless it is recommended that users keep both an electronic copy of their evaluation screens and a printout of their evaluations as a further security measure.
