You will not use any meta tags or any other ‘hidden text’ utilizing our names or trademarks or logos, without express consent thereof. Any unauthorized use terminates the permission or limited subscription license granted by us to you.

Printing of Content . You may print any document or information forming part of the Content, for your personal use or in your job role, but not for sharing with any third-party outside your organization and even inside your organization, not to any person not authorized as per the terms of the subscription. You may share an excerpted or derivative version of the Content, but not the entire document and/ or information, so long as such sharing is (i) for limited internal use within your organization; (ii) in support of your job role, and (iii) adequate reference or credit of it being sourced from us is provided. For example, you may include a small excerpt of the Content (such as a few lines of text not to exceed five sentences, a paragraph, or a specific graphic) in an internal report or presentation (attributing us, as the source). You may also briefly summarize the Content in your own words for your project team or senior-level decision makers (attributing us, as the source). You agree and understand that you will ensure that such sharing and/ or printing:

(i) is not done on a systematic or routine basis (e.g., by a licensed user who consistently distributes a periodic summary or excerpt of the document or who leverages a company business process that allows non-users to routinely approach the licensed user to meet their research needs).

(ii) is limited to an internal audience only of no more than five people.

(iii) is not done with the intent or effect of avoiding the purchase of additional user licenses.

You agree and understand that you will not share any portion of the Content in either printed or electronic format with any third-party individual either internal or external to your organization.

III. SUBSCRIPTION BASED ACCESS – USERNAME AND PASSWORD

As part of your subscription, you will receive a unique “username” and “password,” which is for your personal use only and may not be shared with any third-party, whether inside or outside your organization. In this regard, do note that in case of a corporate subscription, each of the authorized users will receive a separate/ unique “username” and “password.” There are two exceptions where your username and password may be reassigned to another within your organization (such exceptions being infrequent, and decided at our discretion):

(a) If your job responsibilities substantially change so that you no longer require access to the Content, and your company and/ or organization requests for a withdrawal of your access and re-assigning of the same to another user; or

(b) If you permanently leave your organization.

In case of (a) above, when your organization substitutes a subscriber, the new subscriber must be located in the same country as the original subscriber, and the organization shall, at our request, provide all relevant details of the new subscriber, if needed. In situations where your organization desires to assign this limited user license to a contractor/ sub-contractor:

(i) The contractor must be a full-time equivalent, meaning they have a company assigned email address, company business cards and function for all intents and purposes as a full-time employee (as opposed to a temporary contractor for a discrete term);

(ii) The organization must contractually agree to pass on to contractor this usage Policy and to be liable in the event of any misuse or non-compliance with this Policy;

(iii) The contractor must agree to only use the Content for your organization (i.e., the organization that has subscribed to the Portal);

(iv) In no instance, is it ever acceptable for a subscriber to share their username and password with the contractor; and

(v) Upon termination of the contractor’s service term with your organization, the company hereby undertakes to arrange to reassign the limited user license to another within the company as per the terms and conditions of this Policy.
