Subject to your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions, EisphorIA grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-assignable license to use the Datahub or any Subscribed Product in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.4.2.
In case the license is granted to your employer or another entity that you represent, your employer or the entity you represent is entitled to put the Data Hub or any Subscribed Product at your disposal, it being understood and agreed that in such case, except formally accepted by EisphorIA, you are the sole authorised end user, excluding any use by any other person.4.3.
The license for the Data Hub is granted as from the moment you access the Data Hub, the license for a Subscribed Product shall commence on date of acceptance to these Terms and Conditions when entering into the Subscribed Product and shall remain in effect for the term selected by you.4.4.
You acknowledge that the Data Hub and the Products published on it are constantly being improved by EisphorIA. You will only have access to the latest released version of the Data Hub or any Subscribed Product. Each new version or update of the Data Hub or a Subscribed Product will replace the previous version thereof, and be subject to all rights and obligations as mentioned in these Terms and Conditions. During the updates, the Data Hub or a Subscribed Product may temporarily be unavailable to you.Article 5Purchase5.1.
Following the purchase of a Product, EisphorIA issues an order form (the “Order Form”), which is the form by which you agree to subscribe to a Product. The Order Form contains all of the details about your purchase, including the Subscribed Product, the subscription term and the associated fees.5.2.
In consideration for the license granted by EisphorIA on a Subscribed Product, you shall pay the fees specified for this Subscribed Product on the Order Form. All payment obligations are non-cancellable and, except as specifically provided for in these Terms and Conditions, fees paid are not-refundable.5.3.
EisphorIA only accepts payments from the bank account of you. EisphorIA has the right to request additional information if it feels necessary.5.4.
EisphorIA only accepts two methods of payment, being credit card and bank transfer:
If a payment is made by credit card, you authorize EisphorIA to charge the credit card or bank account for all fees payable in relation to the Subscription. You further authorize EisphorIA to use a third party to process payments, and consent to the disclosure of your payment information to such third party.
If the payment is made via a bank transfer, EisphorIA has the right to suspend temporally the access to a Product until the receipt of the payment on its bank account. The Subscription terminates automatically if the payment is not received until the end of the Subscription term.5.5.
All fees payable to EisphorIA shall be paid without the right to set off or counterclaim. Sums stated to be payable do not include any applicable value added tax or other taxes, which shall be additionally charged. You are responsible for payment of all general, state or local import, usage, value added, withholding or other taxes associated with the use of a Product.5.6.
During the Subscription, you may upgrade your Subscription by (i) upgrading to a higher type of Subscription and/or (ii) upgrading to a longer term (collectively, “Subscription Upgrades”). Subscription Upgrades are considered as a new purchase, hence will restart the Subscription term. Upon a Subscription Upgrade, you will be billed for the applicable increased amount of fees, at our then-current rates (unless indicated otherwise in an Order Form), then the Subscription fees already paid by you in relation to the Subscription that is effectively upgraded will be reduced from the new upgraded fees, and the difference shall be due and payable by you upon the date on which the Subscription Upgrade was made.5.7.
In order to ensure that you will not experience any interruption, the Subscription includes an automatic renewal by default, according to which, unless you cancel the Subscription prior to its expiration, the Subscription will automatically renew upon the end of the then applicable Subscription term, for a renewal term equal in time to the original Subscription term (excluding extended terms) and, unless otherwise notified to you, at the Product’s list price. Accordingly, unless either you or us cancel the Subscription prior to its expiration, EisphorIA will attempt to automatically charge you the applicable fees upon or immediately prior to the expiration of the then applicable Subscription term. If you wish to avoid such auto-renewal, you should cancel the Subscription, prior to its expiration, at any time through the Account settings. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms and Conditions, in case you cancel the Subscription, during a Subscription term, the Subscription will not renew for an additional term, but you will not be refunded or credited for any unused period within the Subscription term.5.8.
By exception to the principle that fees paid are non-refundable, if during the Subscription, EisphorIA enters into a specific agreement with a third party in relation to this Product for which you are identified formally as so-called “End-User” given the equivalence of email address, as a result of termination resulting therefrom, you will be refunded by an amount equivalent to the fees already paid prorated for the remainder of the terminated Subscription term.5.9.
It is your responsibility to keep the contact information, the payment information and the billing information up to date and to promptly notify EisphorIA of any changes in that respect.Article 6Free Trial6.1.
EisphorIA may offer a Product on a free, no-obligation trial version for a determined term (the “Free Trial

If you register for a Free Trial (the “Free Trial Subscription
”), EisphorIA will in principle make the Product available on a trial basis, free of charge until the earlier of (a) the end of the Free Trial term (if not terminated earlier for another reason specified in these Terms and Conditions) or (b) the start date of the paid Subscription (the “Paid Subscription
The Free Trial is governed by these Terms and Conditions. If EisphorIA includes additional terms and conditions on the Free Trial registration web page, those will apply as well.Article 7Ownership7.1.

You acknowledge that the Data is extracted by EisphorIA on selected public databases and that the use of the Data can be subject by those public databases to specific limitations or to specific conditions other than those specified in these Terms and Conditions (which are accessible for each Product via its specific terms and conditions).

EisphorIA shall not be liable for any loss, injury, claim, liability, or damage of any kind resulting from your use of the Data Hub. EisphorIA shall not be liable for any special, direct, indirect, incidental, punitive or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees) in any way due to, resulting from, or arising in connection with the use of or inability to use the Data Hub, the interactive areas, the content or any communications. To the extent the foregoing limitation of liability is prohibited or fails its essential purpose, EisphorIA sole obligation to you for damages shall be limited to € 100,00 and this limitation of liability is cumulative and not per incident..Product11.2.
EisphorIA provides any Product “as is”, without any warranties regarding the accuracy, completeness, or fitness for a particular purpose. In particular, you accept that EisphorIA does not provide legal advice and that the information provided in any Product should always be interpreted and / or applied by professionals in the fields. EisphorIA cannot be held liable for the consequences of any decision based on the access, use, misuse or interpretation of a Subscribed Product and the information contained therein and EisphorIA makes no representations or warranties that your use of a Subscribed Product is appropriate in your jurisdiction. You must keep a critical and professional mind with regard to a Product content.11.3.
EisphorIA does not warrant, and expressly disclaim any warranty or representation that a Product, including the access thereto and use thereof, will be uninterrupted, timely, secured, error free and that your archives won’t be lost. EisphorIA disclaims any and all liability or responsibility for any delays, failures, interception, alteration, loss or other damages that you may suffer that are beyond its control.11.4.
EisphorIA is not liable for damages arising from non-compliance by you to these Terms and Conditions. Moreover, it is not liable for any damage that has been caused directly or indirectly by you or a third party by your or its fault, negligence, incorrect or unauthorized use of a Product. It cannot be held liable when a defect, malfunction or unavailability of a Product is attributable to (i) a software or hardware defect that was not issued by EisphorIA, or (ii) if you fail to report immediately any defect together with documentation and information relating to the occurrence of the defect.11.5.
EisphorIA ensures that any Susbscribed Product is developed in a professional manner and is consistent with generally accepted industry standards. However, EisphorIA does not warrant that a Subscribed Product is entirely free of bugs and/or errors. You will immediately notify EisphorIA of any bug or other deficiencies regarding the access to or use of a Product and keep it confidential with respect to any third party. EisphorIA will exert all reasonable efforts to solve the problem in its services within a commercially reasonable delay but guarantees no remedies in this respect.11.6.
EisphorIA shall use its best efforts to provide un-interrupted availability of any Subscribed Product, except for maintenance, which may cause a Subscribed Product or part of it, not to be available during the performance of the maintenance. You will as soon as possible be notified if the period of planned maintenance is known. EisphorIA also has the right to conduct unplanned maintenance if necessary (e.g. for security reasons). You will be as soon as practically possible, informed of such an event. Temporary downtime of a Product for technical or maintenance reasons will not be considered a breach of EisphorIA’s obligations.11.7.
EisphorIA represents that it has the authorization to extract information from the different public databases from which the Data is conveyed. In that respect, EisphorIA cannot be held responsible for a lack of completeness of the Data, resulting in particular, but not exclusively, from a late update of the Data or a lack of information produced on the public databases or the interruption of the authorization to reproduce information. Moreover, insofar as a Product reproduces information conveyed by public databases - and this, in most cases, with the obligation to not to alter the content -, EisphorIA cannot be held responsible (i) for errors in the content of the information included in the Product or (ii) for the correct anonymisation or pseudonymisation of the documentation.11.8.
It is acknowledged and agreed that the authorities owning the Data or managing the databases from which it is extracted do not assume any liability towards you with respect to the concerned Product and the Data contained therein.11.9.
AProduct may contain hypertext links to third party websites (other than websites of public databases from which the Data is extracted). EisphorIA has no control over these third party websites. The presence of these hypertext links in a Product does not imply an approval or a guarantee of quality from EisphorIA. EisphorIA cannot be held liable for the content of these websites and for damages suffered by you in that respect. EisphorIA therefore declines any liability, in particular as regards the material, the data contained on those websites and the processing of personal data proceeded on those websites.11.10.
Except in case of fraud or intentional fault, notwithstanding anything in these Terms and Conditions and to the fullest permitted by law, EisphorIA is only liable for direct, foreseeable and proven damages.

For direct damages, if repair in species is not possible, EisphorIA’s liability shall not exceed an amount equal to one (1) time the last fees perceived for the concerned Product. This limitation of liability is cumulative and not per incident. You shall take all necessary measures that can reasonably be expected to limit your damage.Article 12Term and Termination12.1.
These Terms and Conditions shall enter into force on the Effective Date. The Terms and Conditions shall continue in effect during the entire access and use of the Data Hub or a Product.12.2.
EisphorIA may temporarily suspend access to the Data Hub or a Product in case you access or use the Data Hub or a Product in violation of these Terms and Conditions and/or in case you default on its obligations. EisphorIA will notify you of such suspension and its reasons by email. Suspension of access will not suspend or otherwise affect your obligations under the Terms and Conditions. In case you do not remedy the reasons for the suspension within three (3) business days of such notice, EisphorIA may immediately terminate the access, without any formalities being required and compensation being due and without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to EisphorIA pursuant to these Terms and Conditions or under applicable law. All fees for the full then current term shall be due and payable by you to EisphorIA.12.3.
Notwithstanding Article 12.2 above, EisphorIA has the right to immediately terminate the access to the Data Hub or a Product if (i) you proceed to an action that infringes your obligations stated under Articles 10.2, 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6 or (ii) you proceed to an action being constitutive of fraud.12.4.
You may terminate a Subscription of a Subscribed Product at any time, whereby such termination shall not derogate from your obligation to pay outstanding applicable fees. The effective date of such termination will take effect at the end of the then-current Subscription term, and you shall not be entitled to a refund for any pre-paid fees.12.5.
Upon termination, a Subscription and all rights granted to you hereunder in relation to the Subscribed Product shall terminate. As upon termination, access to the archives is also forfeited, it is your sole liability to export your archive in the concerned Product prior to such termination, and therefore EisphorIA shall not have any liability in connection thereto. Unless expressly indicated herein otherwise, the termination shall not relieve you from your obligation to pay due fees.12.6.
If during a Subscription, EisphorIA enters into a specific agreement with a third party in relation to the same Product and for which you are identified formally as so-called “End-User” (given the equivalence of email address), such event will automatically entails the termination of your Subscription associated with the concerned Product. By derogation of Articles 12.4 and 12.5, in such case, (i) you are entitled for a refund by an amount equivalent to the fees already paid prorated for the remainder of the terminated Subscription term and (ii) all your archives will be automatically maintained.12.7.
In case of the access an use of both the Data Hub and Products are terminated, implying hence a formal deregistration from the Data Hub (“Full Termination”), Articles 7 (Ownership), 8 (Confidential Information), 9 (Privacy), 10 (Obligations), 11 (Confidentiality), 10 (Limitations of Liability) and 13 (General Provisions), shall survive such Full Termination, and continue to be in force and effect in accordance with their applicable terms.Article 13Miscellaneous13.1.
Neither Party will be liable for any delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations due to Force majeure. If a Party refers to Force Majeure, it must immediately (at least within three (3) business days) inform the other Party of the nature of the Force Majeure, stating the date when the Force Majeure comes or has come into effect, and also when it will have ceased to exist. In this case, the Party must use its best efforts to keep the consequences to a minimum.13.2.
In the event that any provision of these Terms and Conditions is determined by a competent court or authority to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such provision or part of it shall be severed from the remaining terms which shall continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law. In such case, the Parties shall use their best efforts to negotiate in good faith a valid replacement provision that is as close as possible to the original intention of the Parties and produces the same or as similar as possible effect.13.3.
No failure or delay by a Party to exercise any right or remedy provided hereunder or by law shall constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy, nor shall it prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy shall prevent or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.13.4.
All rights, obligations, agreements, orders and offers contained in the Terms and Conditions are governed by Belgian law.13.5.
Any dispute that cannot be reconciled by discussion between the Parties shall be submitted to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Brussels, Belgium.
