You are permitted to access the Site, including the written text, graphics, data, images, illustrations, marks, logos, sound or video clips, photographs and/or other works (singly or collectively, the “Content”) solely for your or your organisation’s internal information purposes. You agree to observe all copyright, trademark and other notices on the Content.

Neither you nor your organisation may use any Content or any excerpt from any Content to promote your or your organisation’s products or services. External citation of the Content is prohibited without CCI’s express written permission.

The Site and all of the Content are legally protected and are the property of CCI, its licensors or third parties. No right, title or interest in any Content is transferred to you. You agree to use the Site and the Content in accordance with all applicable laws. You agree not to take any action that would compromise the security of the Site or render the Site inaccessible to others.

Restricted Areas

Access to certain areas (such as TRACC Community) of the Site are restricted (“Restricted Areas”) to CCI Clients to whom CCI has issued passwords. You are not authorised to access any password-restricted areas unless you have received a password from CCI (or from your employer if your employer has been authorised by CCI to issue such password).

You may not use another person’s password to access the Site:
If you are a CCI Client, or an employee of a CCI Client, you are responsible for keeping your password confidential. You agree not to share your password with anyone or to otherwise allow anyone to access the Site or the Content through your account. You further agree not to reproduce, publicly display, perform, distribute, alter, transmit or create derivative works from or otherwise share any Content or portions or excerpts thereof from Restricted Areas with anyone, except as expressly provided in these Terms of Use or as otherwise authorised by CCI in writing. You take full responsibility for any activity that occurs through the use of your account and you agree to notify CCI immediately if you become aware that anyone has accessed your account or has obtained your password.

Interactive Services

Certain areas of the Site contain interactive services where visitors are permitted to post content for publication on the Site. If you elect to use such interactive services, you are solely responsible for all materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted, that you upload, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available on the Site (“User Content”).

You may submit User Content as long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, libellous, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable. You hereby grant CCI a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, fully sublicensable and transferable right to exploit User Content at CCI’s discretion throughout the world in any media. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to User Content; that User Content is accurate; and that the use of User Content does not violate these Terms of Use and will not cause injury to any person or entity. CCI takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content submitted by you or any third party. You may be exposed to User Content that you find offensive, indecent, inaccurate, misleading or otherwise objectionable, and you bear all risks associated with using that User Content. CCI reserves the right, but not the obligation, to monitor, edit or remove any User Content for any reason.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary elsewhere, by posting any User Content on this Site you expressly represent and warrant to CCI that such User Content is not confidential or proprietary, and that your posting of such User Content does not violate any confidentiality or other obligations to which you are subject. CCI does not accept unauthorised idea submissions outside of established business relationships. To protect the interests of CCI and its clients, CCI must treat the issue of such submissions with great care. Importantly, without a clear business relationship, CCI cannot and does not treat any such submissions in confidence. Accordingly, please do not communicate unauthorised idea submissions to CCI through this website. Any ideas disclosed to CCI outside a pre-existing and documented confidential business relationship are not confidential and CCI may therefore develop, use and freely disclose or publish similar ideas without compensating you or accounting to you. CCI will make every reasonable effort to return or destroy any unauthorised idea submissions without detailed review of them. However, if a review is necessary in CCI’s sole discretion, it will be with the understanding that CCI assumes no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to CCI through this website, you agree to be bound by the terms of this stated policy.
