The Website supports various Expert communities, namely the OnFrontiers “Marketplace”, which is a database of Experts that is available to all Clients, and various “Knowledge Networks”, which are closed Expert communities each of which is available to only the Client that maintains such network (the Marketplace, Knowledge Networks, and all services and utilities made available by OnFrontiers in connection with the same hereinafter collectively referred to as, the “Services”).
