General Terms

When you ("you" or "user") use this Internet web site (www.IRIST.org) and its services ("Site") you agree to the following terms and conditions (the "Agreement").

IRIST ("IRIST" or "we") may revise these terms from time to time, at our sole discretion, by updating this posting. Unless otherwise provided below, the revised terms will take effect when they are posted.

You are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws, keeping in mind that access to the Site Content may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If any part of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable part shall be given effect to the greatest extent possible and the remainder will remain in full force and effect. This Agreement is personal to you and you may not transfer, assign or delegate this Agreement to anyone without the express written permission of IRIST. Any attempt by you to assign, transfer or delegate this Agreement without the express written permission of IRIST shall be null and void. Any dispute you may have with respect to this Site must be commenced within one year after it arises, or the cause of action is barred. The paragraph headings in this Agreement, shown in boldface type, are included to help make the agreement easier to read and have no binding effect. The Agreement comprises the entire agreement between you and IRIST with respect to the use of the Site and supersedes all prior agreements between the parties regarding the subject matter contained herein. We suggest that you print out a copy of this Agreement for your records.

Unedited Third Party Content and Monitoring

In some instances IRIST acts as a distributor (and not a publisher) of unedited content supplied by third parties and users of this Site. IRIST has no editorial control over such content. Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, or other information or content expressed or made available by such third parties, including users, are those of the respective author(s) or distributor(s) and not of IRIST. IRIST neither endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any unedited opinion, advice, information, or statement made on this Site by anyone other than authorized IRIST employees acting in their official capacities or third parties over whom IRIST exercises editorial control. You understand and acknowledge that IRIST does not monitor unedited content for accuracy or reliability.


Protection of Content Provided by IRIST and Its Licensors

The Site contains material furnished by IRIST, its licensors, and other users. You should assume that everything you see or read on the Site which was not furnished by or received for you (such as images, photographs, illustrations, text and other materials) ("Site Content") is copyrighted unless otherwise noted. You may not sell, reproduce, distribute, modify, display, publicly perform, prepare derivative works based on, repost or otherwise use any of the Site Content in any way for any public or commercial purpose without prior written consent of IRIST or the rights holder. You may not use the Site Content on any other web site or in a networked computer environment for any purpose. In order to protect IRIST's and its Licensor's trade secrets, you agree that you will not "reverse engineer" any Site Content consisting of downloadable software, unless specifically authorized by the trade secret owner or otherwise permitted by law. If you violate any of these terms, your permission to use the Site Content will automatically terminate, you must immediately destroy any copies you have made of the Site Content, and we may end your authorization to use the Site.


Intellectual Property Policy

IRIST respects the intellectual property of others and expects users of the Site to do the same. At our discretion and in appropriate circumstances, IRIST may terminate the accounts of users or prevent access to the Site by users who infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others.


Notices

IRIST will give you any necessary notices by posting them on the Site. You authorize IRIST to send notices via electronic mail as well if IRIST decides, in its sole discretion, to do so. You agree to check the Site for notices, and that you will be considered to have received a notice when it is made available to you by posting on the Site.


Links

The Site contains links to other web sites or resources. While IRIST makes every effort to ensure the availability and accuracy of these links, you acknowledge and agree that IRIST is not responsible or liable for (i) the availability or accuracy of such sites or resources; or (ii) the content, advertising, or products on or available from such sites or resources. The inclusion of any link on the Site does not imply that we endorse the linked site. You use the links at your own risk.


Errors and Disclaimer of Warranties

We endeavor to provide a convenient, accurate and functional Site. All of the information contained on the Site is obtained from sources that we believe are accurate and reliable. However, the Content Providers do not guarantee that the information provided will be sufficient or appropriate for every individual or situation.

We do not guarantee that the Site will be error free or that it or the servers that operate it are free of viruses or other harmful components. We urge you to keep backup copies of material, if any, that you maintain on or use with the Site. If your use of the Site results in the need for servicing or replacing property, material, equipment or data, we are not responsible for those costs.

Without limiting the foregoing, everything on the site is provided to you "as is" and "as available," without warranty or condition of any kind, either express or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of availability, accuracy, reliability, timeliness, security, completeness, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.

IRIST also makes no warranty that the site will meet user's requirements nor does IRIST make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from the site. IRIST makes no warranty regarding any goods or services purchased or obtained through the site or any transactions entered into through the site.

No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by user from IRIST or through the site shall create any warranty not expressly made herein.


Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless IRIST, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and its Content Providers from and against any claims, actions or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, made by any third party due to or resulting from your use of the Site or the Site Content or your violation of this Agreement.


Limitation of Liability

Our aggregate liability to you for all claims arising out of, or in connection with, the site or the site content is limited to one hundred Euros (100.00 Euros). Neither IRIST nor any other party involved in creating, producing, or delivering the site shall be liable for any incidental, special, consequential or indirect damages resulting from your access to, or use of, or inability to use the site and the site content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence) or any other legal theory, and whether or not we know of the possibility of such damage. You acknowledge that without these limitations, we could not provide low cost and/or free access to the Site. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.


Cancellation

Users may cancel their registration at any time by notifying us. We may cancel a user's registration if that user does not visit the Site for an extended period of time, or if we reasonably believe that user has violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement, or violated our rights or those of another party. We will notify a user if we cancel that user's account, unless in our judgment giving notice would cause a risk of further violation or damages. When a user's registration is canceled, that user may no longer have access to messages, files and other material that user keeps on the Site. The material may be deleted. The provisions entitled "Errors and Disclaimer of Warranties," "Indemnity," "Limitation of Liability," and "General Provisions" will survive cancellation of a user's registration.
