The parties to this agreement are Global-Regulation Inc. (“Global-Regulation”), a Canadian federal corporation, and you, a user of Global-Regulation.com (including its APIs), referred to in this agreement as “You” or “Your”. “You”/”Your” includes students, library patrons, employees, officers, directors and contractors of your legal entity.
Global-Regulation provides a search engine and related tools for finding laws, definitions, case studies and other government/academic information at the domain www.global-regulation.com and through its APIs, social media accounts and other channels (collectively, the “Service”).
The Service is a subscription product.
You, or the organization through which you are provided access to the Service, must pay the subscription fee that has been agreed to with Global-Regulation, including any applicable sales tax.
You may use the Service but may not re-sell it to third parties.
You are not permitted to run frequent (more than one per minute) automated searches without obtaining prior permission from Global-Regulation.
Global-Regulation shall be permitted to disclose that you are a client and use Your logo on its website.
Global-Regulation does not own the copyright in the laws, case studies, definitions or other government/academic information that it allows you to find. You must consult with the law/data source to determine your rights to make use of the text of laws in your jurisdiction.
If You access the Service using IP authentication (as opposed to username/password authentication) then You, or the organization that you represent, must provide up-to-date IPs to Global-Regulation in order to maintain Your access to the Service.
If You access the Service using a username and password then You must not distribute your log in credentials to third parties.
Global-Regulation’s liability shall be limited to the greater of $200 or three times the Subscription Fees paid by You in the 18 months preceding providing notice of your claim to Global-Regulation.
The Service is a complex software system that may have bugs and is not a substitute for obtaining legal advice.
The Service is provided to You as-is, without any warranty whatsoever (whether express, statutory or implied), to the maximum extent permitted by the laws of Canada and your jurisdiction. Without limiting the foregoing, Global-Regulation specifically does not warrant that your access to the Service will be uninterrupted, that the search results you receive will be comprehensive or that any excerpts will be accurate. You should always consult the official source laws and not solely rely on Global-Regulation to determine your legal rights or obligations.
You agree to indemnify Global-Regulation against claims brought by any person you have provided access to the Service to (i.e. distributed a username and password to or provided IP-based access to).
This agreement may only be assigned by Global-Regulation and only if a minimum of 10 days notice is provided to You.
This agreement may be amended by Global-Regulation providing you with notice at least 10 days before the proposed new terms are to take effect. If You do not agree to the new terms then Global-Regulation shall provide You with a pro-rata refund of any Subscription Fees and You must cease using the Service.
Any disputes related to this agreement shall be heard in the courts of Toronto, Canada and Ontario law shall apply.
This is the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes any other oral or written understandings between the parties.
Note: Global-Regulation last updated the terms of this agreement on Feb 28, 2018.
