Molecule is not liable for any of your interactions with other users found through our services. You hereby waive all claims against Molecule arising from such interactions. Molecule will not get involved in disputes between Supporters and Researchers and all dealings are directly between them. Molecule is not responsible for any of the actions of a Researcher and only Researchers can be held liable for fulfilling implied obligations. Molecule can at any time suspend a listed project for any reason.
Collaborators can submit requests of contact through our platform if they would like to learn more about certain research projects or think that they can help the researchers advance their discoveries. By submitting your request, you give us permission to forward your contact details to the Researcher behind the project. All these requests are handled on a best-effort basis but there is no guarantee that requests will be read or answered.
