5.2 Euromonitor permits limited use and re-use of the content made available through our Passport Subscription Services, subject to certain permissions and restrictions as set out in these Terms. These permissions and restrictions are designed to create a balance between, on the one hand, the flexibility given to Authorised Users (see Clause 5.5 below) in their use and re-use of Euromonitor material and, on the other hand, the restrictions necessary to protect Euromonitor’s commercial interests by preventing the creation of substitute products. For details of who can use this content and these services, and how they can be used, please see Clauses 5.4 to 5.7 below.

5.3 Euromonitor provides telephone training and assistance for all Authorised Users (see Clause 5.5 below) from its international offices during Euromonitor’s normal business hours.

Permission to use content accessed using a Passport Subscription Service

5.4 When you pay for a Passport Subscription Service(s), what you are buying is the right for up to 10 “Authorized Users” (see Clause 5.5 below) to access and use the digital content available through that service (or extracts from the same) in connection with your business and for the duration of the subscription, subject to these Terms.

5.5 “Authorized Users” are the named employees whose usual place of work is at the business address you specify at the time you place your order. After your order has been processed, Euromonitor will contact you to obtain the names of each Authorised User and provide individual login details accordingly. In the course of performing their duties for your business, Authorised Users will be able to access the Passport Subscription Service(s) in the following ways only:

For creating and re-distributing New Materials to your clients:

to take one or more “Limited Extracts” (see below) from the digital content available through the Passport Subscription Service(s) for the sole purpose of reproducing them in original “New Material” (see below) and supplying that New Material to the client who commissioned you to create it for use by that client for internal business purposes only. Such extracts must comply with the following conditions in order to qualify as Limited Extracts for use in accordance with this clause:

  • the maximum amount which can be extracted from the digital content is, in the case of an individual written report, article or other document, 10% of that document, or, in the case of statistical data, 100 cells of data (“Limited Extract”); o Limited Extracts may not, in aggregate, represent more than 10% of a report, document or other material created by one or more Authorised Users which incorporates those Limited Extracts (“New Material”);
  • the Limited Extracts must represent a commercially insubstantial part of the New Material when compared to the New Material as a whole;
  • the New Material must consist substantially of original material created by one or more Authorised Users and accordingly must not contain substantial amounts of material aggregated from third parties; o the Limited Extract(s) reproduced in the New Material, and any conclusions drawn by the Authorised User which appear in the New Material and which are based on or refer to such extracts, are accurate, fair and reasonable;
  • all New Materials shall attribute the extracted digital content to Euromonitor International in the following form: “source: © Euromonitor International 2011”.

Neither you nor any Authorised Users may not produce any New Material which could reasonably be regarded as a substitute product or service for the Passport Subscription Service or the digital content available through it. Accordingly, neither you nor Authorised Users may make New Materials available to the public generally, as part of a commercial information service.

  • All uses listed under this Clause 5.5 are subject to the condition that Authorised Users keep intact all and any copyright and proprietary notices.

Restrictions on the use of content accessed using a Passport Subscription Service

5.6 You may not use the content in any way not permitted above in Clause 5.5, in particular:

  • Except as specifically provided for elsewhere in these Terms, you and/or any Authorised User shall not knowingly permit anyone other than Authorised Users to use the content or services.
  • Except as mentioned in Clause 5.5 of these Terms, neither you nor any Authorised Users may re-distribute or make available to third parties any content or other part of a Passport Subscription Service available through that service.
  • Neither you nor any Authorized User may remove, obscure or modify any copyright or other notices included in the content or the services nor any metadata or digital rights management intelligence that may be associated with them.
  • You and any Authorized Users shall permanently delete all stored copies of any content made available through a Passport Subscription Service within 60 days following termination of the relevant subscription. However, this will not prevent any continued use of any New Materials which were compiled before termination of the Passport Subscription Service through which the Limited Extract(s) used in those materials were made available and obtained.

5.7 Please note: If you are unclear about how Authorized Users are permitted to use our services and content in accordance with these Terms, please ask us by contacting your account manager at your Local Office (see Clause 9.3 for further information about contacting your Local Office).

10 CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION

Cancelling your order

10.1 Euromonitor may decline your order for any reason, in which case Euromonitor will send you an e-mail telling you so. If the reason for declining your order is because Euromonitor cannot obtain authorisation of your payment details for any reason, then Euromonitor may invite you to pay by another method.

10.2 Although Euromonitor tries very hard to ensure that all information on the Site is accurate, occasionally errors may occur. If we discover an error in the description of any content or service that you have ordered, we will let you know and ask whether you wish to continue with your order or cancel it. If we discover that the correct price of any content or services you have ordered is lower than our stated price, we will charge you the lower amount and process your order. If the correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before processing your order or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.

10.3 To avoid any doubt, as this Site and its content are intended for business use only, you do not have an automatic right to cancel your contract with Euromonitor. We therefore regret that we do not offer refunds or accept returns, except in the case of returns of defective Reports/books or refunds in circumstances where we are unable to supply the content you have ordered and for which we have taken payment (please see Clauses 7.4 and 12 respectively for further details).

10.4 If you opt to pay for any Passport Subscription Services by invoice, Euromonitor reserves the right to cancel any order(s) for the same if for any reason your payment is not processed within 30 days of the date of your order.

10.5 Euromonitor reserves the right to terminate any contract with you if your payment is not processed for any reason, but you have nevertheless received the content or access to services you have ordered. In such an event, Euromonitor may on notice to you withdraw your right to use such content or services (as described above) and require you to delete or return such content, including content obtained through any services provided, as appropriate.

Terminating a contract for Passport Subscription Service(s)

10.6 Euromonitor or you may terminate a contract for a Passport Subscription Service immediately by giving written notice to the other in any of the following events:

10.6.1 If the other party commits any breach of any of these Terms and fails to remedy that breach (if capable of remedy) within 30 days after notice from the other party giving full particulars of breach and requiring it to be remedied; or

10.6.2 If the other party enters into liquidation, whether compulsory or voluntary (except for the purposes of bona fide reconstruction or amalgamation with the prior approval of the other party), or compounds with or makes any arrangements with its creditors or makes a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or if it has a receiver, manager, administrative receiver or administrator appointed over the whole or substantially the whole of its undertaking or assets, or if it ceases or threatens to cease to carry on its business, or makes any material change in its business, or if it suffers any analogous process under any foreign law.

10.7 Upon termination of a contract for Passport Subscription Services, online access to those services by you or any Authorised Users shall be terminated.

10.8 Termination shall not affect any right to damages or other remedy which the terminating party may have in respect of the event giving rise to the terminations.

11 AVAILABILITY OF PASSPORT SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES

11.1 Euromonitor makes every effort to make the Passport Subscription Services available to you and Authorised Users at all times save for routine maintenance, and to restore access to these services as soon as possible in the event of their interruption or suspension.

11.2 If a Passport Subscription Service becomes unavailable for any reason Euromonitor will endeavour to supply the content available under that service manually by e-mail, fax, or similar means. If the Passport Subscription Service remains unavailable for more than 24 hours and if the unavailability is not beyond Euromonitor’s control, access under these Terms will be extended for a period of time equal to the period of unavailability.

11.3 Euromonitor reserves the right to conduct essential maintenance, software upgrades and other works necessary to maintain the efficient provision of the Site and any content or services provided through it. Where such works result in any Passport Subscription Service becoming temporarily unavailable, Euromonitor will provide you with at least two weeks’ notice and shall wherever possible carry out works on Saturdays or Sundays (GMT).

11.4 Where access to the content, services or any part of the Site is to be controlled by use of passwords, you and all Authorised Users shall use reasonable efforts to ensure that Authorised Users do not divulge their identification numbers, passwords or other login details to any third party. You and all Authorised Users will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that any unauthorised disclosure or use of passwords is reported to Euromonitor as soon as you or they become aware of it.

11.5 In the event of any unauthorised use of any Passport Subscription Service, Euromonitor may, at its discretion and without prejudice to any other remedy, suspend or terminate access by such method as it deems appropriate. In the case of suspension, this will continue until Euromonitor is satisfied that the unauthorised use will not recur.

12 DEFECTIVE CONTENT

12.1 If a Report and/or book is defective (e.g. it is corrupted) or if a book has been damaged in transit, then please contact Euromonitor via info@euromonitor.com to notify us.
