2. Terms applicable to all Materials
2.1 We warrant that we have a right to license the Materials to you and that we will provide the Materials with reasonable skill and care.
2.2 Informa grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable licence to use and/or to access the Materials to which you have subscribed but only in accordance with the permitted use terms and restrictions applicable to the type of licence you have purchased. You undertake to comply with the permitted use terms and restrictions applicable to the type of licence you have purchased and to procure that all Users and/or members of Personnel do likewise.
2.3 The licence granted to you is granted on these Terms and on any Additional Conditions applicable to particular Materials as set out on the Order Form.
2.4 The Order Form will indicate the particular Materials purchased by you or to which you have subscribed and which type of licence you have purchased.
2.5 You accept that if you are resident outside England, you must satisfy yourself that you are lawfully able to use and purchase or subscribe to the Materials and/or Online Services and, to the extent permitted by applicable law, Informa accepts no liability for any costs, losses or damages in this regard.
2.6 The Software and the contents of the Online Services and of the Materials are protected by international copyright laws, database rights and other intellectual property rights. The owner of these rights is Informa, our affiliates or other third party licensors. All product and company names and logos contained within our website or the Online Services or the Materials are the trade marks, service marks or trading names of their respective owners, including us. All of our rights which are not specifically granted to you by these Terms are reserved to us.
2.7 Except as set out in sub-clause 2.1, we exclude all express or implied terms, conditions, warranties, representations or endorsements whatsoever with regard to the Materials, the Online Services, our website or any information or service provided through our website. We will try to ensure that information and content in any Materials or Online Services purchased by you or for which you subscribe are accurate but please note that all information and content in Materials and Online Services are provided on an “as is” basis and you assume total responsibility and risk for your use of information and content in Materials and Online Services.
2.8 We accept no liability for any indirect or consequential loss or damage, or for any loss of data, profit, revenue or business (whether direct or indirect) in each case, however caused, even if foreseeable. In circumstances where you suffer loss or damage arising out of or in connection with the viewing, use or performance of Online Services or any Materials, we accept no liability for this loss or damage whether due to inaccuracy, error, omission or any other cause and whether on the part of Informa or our servants, agents or any other person or entity.
2.9 If we are liable to you for any reason, our liability will be limited to the amount paid by you for the Online Services or the Materials in the year in which such liability arose. This limit does not apply to any liability we may have for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or from our fraudulent misrepresentation.
2.10 The limitations and exclusions in this clause 2 do not affect your non-excludable statutory rights and only apply to the extent permitted by applicable law.
2.11 You may not assign, transfer or sub-licence any of your rights under these Terms and/or the Order Form. These Terms do not confer any rights on any person or party (other than you and/or us) pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.

You acknowledge that you have not entered into this agreement in reliance upon any statement, warranty or representation made by Informa or any other person and you irrevocably and unconditionally waive any rights to claim damages and/or to rescind this agreement by reason of any misrepresentation (other than a fraudulent misrepresentation) that is not contained in these Terms, the Additional Conditions and the Order Form.

The prices are exclusive of applicable taxes and are additionally subject to Value Added Tax where appropriate. We may change the price of any Materials before your order is accepted.

2.17 We are entitled (in our absolute discretion and without any requirement for explanation) to refuse any order or purchase request for any of the Materials. We will not be bound to supply or permit access to any of the Materials unless and until:

Part 3

 

3. Terms applicable to Online Services and/or Subscription Materials
3.1 You are solely responsible in all respects for all use of and for protecting the confidentiality of any username, e-mail verification and password that may be given to you (or to your authorised Users) or selected by you (or by your authorised Users) for access to Online Services. You may not share these with or transfer them to any third parties and you will procure that your authorised Users do not share these with or transfer them to any third parties. You must not interfere with the proper working of the Online Services.
3.2 Informa makes no representations whatsoever about any other websites which you may access through the Online Services. When you access any other website you understand that it is independent from Informa and that we have no control over the content or availability of that website. In addition, a link to any other website does not mean that Informa endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use of, such a website and we shall not be liable for any loss or damage caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use of or reliance on any content, goods or services available on or through any other web or resource.
3.3 Where Materials published in the Online Services include content or materials supplied by third parties, you understand that we do not control or endorse their contents or materials in any way. All contents or materials which are offered or provided by third parties are published in good faith but we do not (to the extent permitted by applicable law) accept responsibility for their accuracy, use or otherwise.
3.4 We reserve the right: 

  1. to make changes or corrections and to alter, discontinue or temporarily suspend any aspect of the Online Services or the Materials;
  2. to vary the technical specification of the Online Services, Materials or of any Software;
  3. temporarily to suspend your access to Materials (and/or to the Online Services generally) for the purposes of maintenance or upgrade (but we will use our reasonable endeavours to minimise the period of suspension);
  4. at any time to withdraw any of the Materials (or any part thereof) to which you have subscribed if Informa ceases to publish or ceases to have the right to publish the relevant Materials or if the same are the subject of a libel or copyright or other third party right infringement allegation and Informa considers that withdrawal is advisable in the circumstances.

 

3.5 If we exercise our right to withdraw Materials under clause 3.4(d), we may offer you broadly equivalent replacement materials and information instead of those withdrawn but if you notify us that you do not wish to accept such replacements or if we are unable to (or do not) offer such replacements, then we will refund the unexpired portion of your subscription payment in respect of the withdrawn Materials for that part of the Subscription Period in question. Any such refund will be in final settlement of the matter and will discharge all of our liabilities to you in respect of the withdrawn Materials.

 

 

Part 4

 

4. Terms applicable to Subscriptions only
4.1 Informa will supply and/or grant you access to the Materials to which you have subscribed for the Subscription Period. The initial period of your Subscription (the “Initial Period”) will be either one year or such other period as is stated on the Order Form, renewing thereafter for further one year periods (each a “Renewal Period”) provided that agreement is reached between you and Informa on the renewal terms. Each yearly renewal fee is payable in advance and Informa reserves the right to suspend access to the Materials until the renewal fee is agreed and paid.
4.2 The amount of the Subscription renewal fee and any other changes to your Subscription will be discussed and agreed between you and Informa and we will endeavour to agree the renewal terms before the expiry of the Initial Period or Renewal Period (as the case may be). However, if for whatever reason the renewal terms have not been agreed before the expiry of the Initial Period or Renewal Period, Informa may (in its absolute discretion) permit your Subscription to continue thereafter by allowing you to have continuing access to the Materials pending agreement of the renewal terms. In such case: 

  1. Informa may (in its absolute discretion) terminate or suspend your Subscription at any time prior to renewal terms being agreed by denying and/or disabling your continuing access to the Materials;
  2. once renewal terms have been agreed, they will apply retrospectively starting from the first day of the Renewal Period to which they relate; and
  3. if (for whatever reason) renewal terms cannot be agreed, Informa will terminate your Subscription and you will pay Informa for any such continued access to the Materials allowed or granted to you by Informa at the then prevailing Informa renewal rate for such Materials, the amount due to be calculated by Informa on a pro rata daily basis.

 

4.3 Your Subscription will continue until the end of the Subscription Period (when this agreement and your Subscription will terminate) but Informa may terminate or suspend your Subscription at any time if you are found in breach of any of these Terms or of the Additional Conditions. In these circumstances you will not be entitled to any refund.
