6. Limitations on accuracy

The Website was developed as a service by Hologic to provide information on its products and services. The information is believed to be accurate at the time of its creation. However, as with any printed material, the information may become out of date over time. The information provided on the Website may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. Information may be changed or updated without notice. The products and services described on the Website may also be improved or changed at any time without notice. It is important to rely on the advice of a knowledgeable professional. Nothing in the presentations may be construed as medical, legal, investment, financial or other advice. This information is not intended to be a substitute for such advice. Hologic does not endorse any specific surgical technique or treatment method. It is the responsibility of each healthcare professional to exercise their own medical judgment in determining what care or surgical techniques to offer patients. Individuals are advised to consult their healthcare professional for complete information on potential adverse reactions associated with the use of medical technologies discussed on this Website. Hologic will use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information on its Website, but Hologic does not warrant or make any representations regarding its accuracy. All users agree that access to and use of the Website is at their own risk.

7. Forward-looking statements

From time to time, Hologic or its representatives may have made, or may make, forward-looking statements, either orally or in writing. These forward-looking statements may be included in press releases, oral statements made by or with the approval of an authorised executive, or other filings made by Hologic with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The words or statements “trend,” “is expected,” “will grow,” “will be,” “could,” “likely result,” “anticipated,” “ongoing,” “estimated,” “projection,” “planned,” “assumed,” “believes,” “considers,” “may be,” “evaluated,” “contingency,” or similar expressions are intended to identify “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Hologic seeks to ensure that such statements are accompanied by meaningful cautionary statements in order to maximise the protections afforded by the Act. Accordingly, these statements are qualified in their entirety by reference to, and are accompanied by, the following discussion of certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements. Investors should also be aware of factors that may affect Hologic’s business or financial position or performance. Reference is also made to Hologic’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, which is available from Hologic upon request, for additional information on factors that could affect Hologic’s business or financial position or performance. In addition, Hologic operates in a rapidly changing and highly competitive business environment. New risks may emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to anticipate all risk factors or to systematically identify or assess the impact of these factors on Hologic or the extent to which any factor or combination of factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as predictions of actual results.

8. Content/Third party software

Hologic is in no way liable for the content of any site owned by a third party that may be associated with the Website by means of a hyperlink, whether or not such hyperlink is provided by the Website or by a third party in accordance with the Terms of Use. Any link on our Website to another site does not constitute an endorsement of that other site, and no judgment or warranty is made as to the accuracy, timeliness or suitability of the content of any site to which the Website may link and we accept no responsibility for it.

Any software made available for downloading from or through the Website is licensed subject to the terms of any applicable license agreement.

11. No waiver

No failure by Hologic to enforce any part of these Terms of Use shall constitute a waiver of any of Hologic’s rights under these Terms of Use with respect to any past or future actions by any person. Neither the receipt of funds by Hologic, nor the reliance by any person on the actions of Hologic shall be deemed a waiver of any part of these Terms of Use. Only a specific written waiver, signed by an authorised representative of Hologic, will have legal effect.
