To make purchasing business products from ResearchGate even easier, we've released new Business Service Terms, ("Service Terms") which incorporate new Business Product Terms ("Product Terms"). 

This means you can now find the terms that apply to all of our business products in one convenient place. The Service Terms contain the standard provisions that apply to all business products, while the Product Terms contain terms specific to each product you're buying or using. For now, this includes terms for our advertising products (e.g. Ads, Emails), recruiting products (e.g. Job Posts, Candidate Search), and Funding Plus.
