These other sites and parties are not under our control, and you acknowledge that we are not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of such sites, nor are we responsible for errors or omissions in any references to other parties or their products and services. The inclusion of such a link or reference is provided merely as a convenience and does not imply endorsement of, or association with, the site or party by us, or any warranty of any kind, either express or implied.

6. Ownership, Copyright and Trademarks

In these Terms the content on the Site, including all information, data, logos, marks, designs, graphics, pictures, sound files, other files, and their selection and arrangement, is called “Content”. Content provided by Users, whether they are Subscribers, End-Users or other Users, is called “User Content”. For example, data about its End-Users and about their training progress that a Subscriber provides to the Site is User Content of that Subscriber, and Content that a User enters into the e-Training Institute forum is User Content of the User.

User Content is that User’s property. e-Training’s only right to that User Content is the limited licenses to it granted in these Terms.

Other than the User Content, the Site, all Content and all software available on the Site or used to create and operate the Site is the property of e-Training Institute or its licensors, and is protected by copyright laws, and all rights to the Site, such Content and such software are expressly reserved. All trademarks, registered trademarks, product names and company names or logos mentioned in the Site are the property of their respective owners. Reference to any products, services, processes or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, and supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by e-Training Institute.

Your User Content is your responsibility. We have no responsibility or liability for it, or for any loss or damage your User Content may cause to other people. Although we have no obligation to do so, we have the absolute discretion to remove, screen or edit without notice any User Content posted or stored on the Site, and we may do this at any time and for any reason. You are solely responsible for maintaining copies of and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Site.

7. Your Limited License Use of Your User Content to e-Training Institute

We do not claim any ownership interest in your User Content, but we do need the right to use your User Content to the extent necessary to operate the Site, and provide the services provided by the Site, now and in the future. For example, if you leave comments on our forum, we need your license to display that User Content on the Site, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to our other Users so that they can view that User Content. If you are a Subscriber and enter data in relation to an End-User and configure your account to display data to your End-Users, we need your license to that User Content to use it in the operation of the Site, and we need the right to sublicense that User Content to your End-Users for that purpose.

Therefore, by posting or distributing User Content to or through the Site, you:
 (a) grant e-Training Institute and its affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to use, display, perform, reproduce, distribute, publish, modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from such User Content on the Site, in the manner in and for the purposes for which the Site from time to time uses such User Content;
 (b) represent and warrant that

(i)           you own and control all of the rights to the User Content that you post or otherwise distribute, or you otherwise have the lawful right to post and distribute that User Content, to or through the Site; and

(ii)          the use and posting or other transmission of such User Content does not violate these Terms and will not violate any rights of or cause injury to any person or entity.

If your User Content is intended for the use of other Users, you also grant us and our affiliates and subsidiaries a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable right to sublicense such User Content to such Users for their use in connection with their use of the Site, as described in Section 7 of these Terms.

These licenses from you are non-exclusive because you have the right to use your User Content elsewhere. They are royalty-free because we are not required to pay you for the use of your User Content on the Site. And they are transferable because we need the right to transfer these licenses to any successor operator of the Site. Our rights to “modify, adapt, translate, and create derivative works from” are necessary because the normal operation of the Site does this to your User Content when it processes it for use in the Site.

8. Our Limited License of Content to You

e-Training Institute grants you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sub licensable license to access the Site and to view, copy and print the portions of the Content available to you on the Site. Such license is subject to these Terms, and specifically conditioned upon the following:

(i)           you may only view, copy and print such portions of the Content for your own use;

(ii)          you may not modify or otherwise make derivative works of the Site or the Content, or reproduce, distribute or display the Site or any Content (except for page caching) except as expressly permitted in these Terms;

(iii)        you may not remove or modify any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices that have been placed in the Content;

(iv)        You may not use any data mining, robots or similar data gathering or extraction methods; and

(v)         You may not use the Site or the Content other than for its intended purpose.

Except as expressly permitted above, any use of any portion of the Content without the prior written permission of its owner is strictly prohibited and will terminate the license granted in this Section, this Agreement and your account with us. Any such unauthorized use may also violate applicable laws, including without limitation copyright and trademark laws. Unless explicitly stated herein, nothing in these Terms may be construed as conferring any license to intellectual property rights, whether by implication or otherwise. The license in this Section is revocable by e-Training Institute at any time.

You represent and warrant that your use of the Site and the Content will be consistent with this license and will not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties, or violate any applicable law.

9. Providing a Reliable Service

We put a great deal of effort into ensuring that our service operates all the time, and that it is a secure environment for your data. We use what we believe to be reliable hosting services and security technologies and services that we believe provide you with a secure and reliable environment.

However, no system is perfectly secure or reliable, the internet is an inherently insecure medium, and the reliability of hosting services, internet intermediaries, your internet service provider, and other service providers cannot be assured. When you use our services, you accept these risks, and the responsibility for choosing to use a technology that does not provide perfect security or reliability. When storing training completion information, Subscribers acknowledge that they are aware of, and accept as satisfactory, e-Training Institute hosting service procedures. Ultimately, training completion data is provided to Subscribers and their End-Users, and they are responsible for its backup.
