Passwords and Security You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any password(s) or API key(s) you are given to access EcoPortal, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password(s). You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorised use of your password(s). We are very mindful of the security of personal information we collect from you and we take every reasonable precaution to prevent unauthorized access to that information.
Use of Semantic Resources In general, any semantic resource submitted to EcoPortal will be freely available for public use, unless the content is marked as private (in which case it will not be shared via EcoPortal) or the Licensing Attribute is defined in the metadata for that ontology. If an end user re-uses semantic resources with a Licensing attribute defined, EcoPortal considers it the end user’s responsibility to acquire appropriate licenses for that re-use. Only the submitter of the semantic resource (either an individual or organization that is the authorized owner of the resource content or a designated representative) will be able to modify it or submit new versions, except when semantic resources which are configured for automatic ingest/update by EcoPortal are changed at their source location on the web by anyone with that authority. All submitted semantic resource content will be indexed and made available for search and visualization to all users of EcoPortal worldwide.
General Disclaimer Except where expressly provided otherwise, EcoPortal and all content, materials, information, products and services provided on EcoPortal are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Any content, materials, information or software downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of EcoPortal is undertaken at your own discretion and risk. We shall have no responsibility for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of any content, materials, information or software. We reserve the right to make changes or updates to EcoPortal at any time without notice.
Limitation of Liability In no event shall LifeWatch ERIC be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, or damages for loss of profits, revenue, data or use, incurred by you or any third party, whether in an action in contract or tort, arising from your access to, or use of, EcoPortal. Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of liability. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you.
Indemnity You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless LifeWatch ERIC and its staff and associates from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses or expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, arising out of or in any way connected with your access to or use of EcoPortal.
