GRANT OF RIGHTS; RESTRICTIONS ON USE
1.1 You and your Authorized Users (defined below in Section 2.1) are granted a nonexclusive, nontransferable, limited right to access and use for research purposes the Online Services and Materials made available to you. The rights granted to each Authorized User are as follows:
(a) The right to electronically display Materials retrieved from the Online Services for the Authorized User’s individual use (e.g., no Authorized User may network others via LANs, WANs, intranets or the Internet). Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Authorized User may display a de minimis amount of the Materials on an incidental, infrequent basis for non-commercial purposes to other Authorized Users so long as the Authorized Users are in the same physical location and the mode of display is not through the Internet, an intranet or other types of networking communication like LANs or WANs;
(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the right to (1) excerpt or quote insubstantial portions of Materials in documents prepared in the ordinary course of your business to the extent permitted by applicable copyright law; (2) distribute Authorized Printouts to persons who are not Authorized Users (including by emailing through the functionality of the Online Services) on an occasional, infrequent basis as permitted by applicable copyright law; and (3) store Materials for periods in excess of the periods set forth above to the extent required for legal or regulatory compliance provided all other Materials are purged promptly upon the expiration of this Subscription Agreement; and
(c) For the avoidance of doubt, the Online Services and the Materials are an original compilation of public domain materials. Such original compilation is protected by copyright, intellectual property laws, and other laws that prevent unauthorized access and use. If you are not an Authorized User, you are not permitted to access or use the Online Services for any purpose whatsoever. If you nevertheless access and use the Online Services or Materials without authorization, your access and use will be governed by these General Terms and Conditions and you will be liable to Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC for any breach of the General Terms and Conditions as well as for unauthorized access and payment for use at the rates in the applicable Price Schedule.
